It's like the Who Moved my Cheese of the new millennium!

You forgot severe erosion of the liberal (classic) economic ideology.

No, silly. Everything is caused by the Reagan Administration (and its "budget cuts").

Everything is caused by global warming… and vice versa.

The greatest shortcoming of human beings is their inability to separate correlation from causation.
Well, more like 2nd greatest shortcoming. Our hubris has to be number one.

I'd like to see a compilation of contradictory claims made regarding global warming.

Wait, I thought only gay marriage could cause that many different things.

If His Holiness, the Divine Prophet Algore I says those things are due to global warming, then it's due to global warming.

"Wait, I thought only gay marriage could cause that many different things."

No, gay marriage will only cause the eventual banning of heterosexual marriage.

We can add divorce and beer refrigeration to the list. ;-)

That's a nice one Chris.

Well, it's a big world — you'd expect global warming to have an effect in lots of different areas.

Nice. Maybe if you doubt the scientific consensus about gravity you can fly around in anti-gravity shoes. Or maybe you'll fall on your ass.

Jay December 10, 2007 at 7:02 am

Nick, please remind us all of the statistical significance of "scientific consensus"?
I'm sure if you go back far enough you could find a "scientific consensus" that the sun revolves around the earth.
