Overheard At The Retirement Home

Hansen : I thought we really had them with that hot summer in 1988

Trenberth : The El Nino in 1998 sure looked like it was CO2, didn’t it?

Serreze : The  2012 Arctic minimum looked like a death spiral to me

Emanuel : Wilma was the icing on the cake. Then what happened????

Mann : Those deniers are still out to get me

Gleick : Nobody can prove that I forged that letter

Briffa : Where did you put my trees, Mike?

Jones : What day does the trash go out? I found some more original temperature records.

Hayhoe : The lack of warming and climate change is a test of my faith. The less evidence there is, the stronger my faith becomes.

    Gore: I am ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur and I still stand by all my misstatements”

    • Chip Bennett says:

      Gore was often heard mumbling, “Everything that ought to be down is up; everything that should be up is down“. His hands had long-since been lashed to the handle of his wheelchair, due to his penchant for overturning his chair with the thrashing arm movements that accompanied his mumbling.

    Gore: “I have no regrets, man. For a while I was bigger than Bush!”

      Nik that is an amazing fuster cluck of a paper … the worse the science the more certain is the necessity of acting on it … WTF 😉

      Bafflegab as J. Scott Armstrong said.

      Bafflegab Pays
      “If you can’t convince them, confuse them.” Simply put, this is the advice that J. Scott Armstrong, a marketing professor at the Wharton School, coolly gives his fellow academics these days. It is based on his studies confirming what he calls the Dr. Fox hypothesis: “An unintelligible communication from a legitimate source in the recipient’s area of expertise will increase the recipient’s rating of the author’s competence.”

        “They were actually deceptive. If they had not been so obscure and so confusing, this kind of philosophy would not have held its own very long. But most men revere words that they can not understand and consider a writer whom they can understand to be superficial. That is a touching sign of modesty.” – Albert Einstein on the works of Aristotle (In Letters to Solovine)

  7. R. Shearer says:

    Schneider, “Come join me down here boys, it’s nice and warm.”

  8. Edmonton Al says:

    Great. All of them. And from Suzuki… “Give up Skeptics. You are completely surrounded”

    • tom0mason says:

      The nurse to Suzuki,
      “Yes sir and isn’t it wonderful! We’re surrounded, I’ve never seen so much snow”

  9. Slingo – “When I said dry and cold, I really meant wet and warm, except I probably meant wet and cold, or even dry and warm – anyway, where’s my bonus?”

  10. Crashex says:

    “Excuse me nurse, could you get me my sweater?”

  11. gator69 says:

    McKibben: Squirrel!

  12. tom0mason says:

    Ah, yes nurse it’s Tuesday. Drought-day!

  13. Ross Gelbspan: “Are they serving the Pullet Surprise for dinner tonight?”

  14. darrylb says:

    I thought that MS Hayhoe would gradually go back to becoming an objective scientist.
    But perhaps she is too far gone.

  15. Bob Tisdale says:

    Reblogged this on Bob Tisdale – Climate Observations and commented:
    This made me laugh. Please add more, either here or at RealScience.

  16. Andy Oz says:

    Cook: “We would have got 100% consensus if Suzuki could count properly. 97% looks like we made it up!!”

  17. Andy Oz says:

    Tim Flannery – “100 degrees F on Christmas Day proves Global Warming has gone exponential!!!”
