Comment of The Week

By far and away the funniest, cleverest and best aimed barb I have seen for a long time, from Mr Tips over at Farrar's place. Couldn't figure out how to copy it so I've taken the trouble to transcribe it. Well worth the effort.

Dear Mr Russell Brown

I have done a few calculations of my own (being a scientist I do it all the time).

These calculations run as follows:

If you multiplied all the analysis of the 'scientific consensus' and divided it by the number of liberal left weiners present in the 'consensus', then took into account their fat bank balances and chardonay allowances, took the square root, log transformed it and applied post-hoc Bonferroni, the answer is:

Another whole pile of shit from "writers" like you.

Global warming is a natural event. 6,000 years ago, Finland had the climate currently enjoyed by Denmark. There have been more C02 emissions and sulphur put out by three volcanoes (Krakatoa, Pinatubo and Mt St Helens) than the ENTIRE human contribution.

I suggest you start writing for Marie Clare or Cosmo, they sound more up your alley.

Mr Tips.

Aaaaaahhhhhh! Where do you get quality commentary like this in the MSM?

Yes, it was very funny. BTW what does MSM stand for?

Brilliant.

I always wondered that, Gooner. I'm guessing it's approved journalist natterings.

Poor silly Russell Brown was trying to scientifically justify farting against thunder. BTW MSM is main stream media

MrTips is correct.

And just think - there are 60,000 km worth of undersea spreading volcanic ridges belching God knows what into the sea and atmosphere.

Russell's was one of the few sensible comments in the thread. Just say the word climate change and watch the flat earther's start frothing as if no sensible person with any scientific background could possibly believe such idiocy. Strange how so many of them like their eminent mentor Dubya also have such faith in creationism freedom and democracy blah blah blah.

ackers1. Russell's was one of the most inane comments in the thread. Like many journos he has much to say about many subjects and no particular expertise in any. This current example of his 'science' would have it that next time there is a cyclone alert, four million New Zealanders should stand in line, down trou, bend over baring their bums and fart in unison in order to divert said cyclone in an environmentally friendly way.

I am an Earth scientist. I also understand how computer models of scientific processes are implemented at a technical level. I can assure you most global warmists / climate change doomsayers are either suckling on the taxpayers tit (e.g local proponent NIWA) or are ignorant about the scientific theories and computer modelling technology involved.

I imagine Brown fits into the later category.

I see Russell now has a problem with Mr Tips' credibility on DPF's blog as Tips is linking to the Vatican on his blog. Such tolerance.

gooner, MSM is Main Stream Media, i.e. it describes the phenomenon that most journalists are socialists or commies and would vote for Helen.

The most dangerous and committed left wingers are the ones who call themselves "moderates".
