Wisdom For The Ages

A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 one Ranger was carrying and asked him, "Why do you carry a 45?"

The Ranger responded, "Because they don't make a 46."

I Knew We Would Prevail

I also knew it would take time.

And we've got a lot longer to go before we've crushed them once and for all.

But we now are at the beginning of the end:
Time to Turn Up the Heat on the Warmists
By Selwyn Duke, American Thinker

At one time some would call them "deniers." The more generous called them "skeptics." But now, increasingly, it appears that they can be called something else: sane. Yes, the climate has certainly changed.

Even in the mainstream media, the less liberal organs are waking up. There is now a never-ending barrage of articles on the climate scam, with The Washington Times, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post firing some recent salvos. And these inconvenient truths are just adding to a case against the Climateers that has become dizzying.

Really, those issuing Chicken Little warnings had a tough sell from the get-go. We're told that our world has seen at least five major ice ages, but, then again, I've also heard four. It has experienced numerous minor ones, although I'm not sure anyone knows precisely how many. In fact, we hear that the pattern is to have 100,000-year glacial periods followed by 12,000-year interglacials, with1500-year cycles of warming and cooling embedded within them. We're told that during part of the Cryogenian Period -- otherwise known as "Snowball Earth" -- the world was completely blanketed with snow and ice and that during another period, glaciers were almost or completely gone. Furthermore, we're informed that during the latter there was still, believe it or not, dry land and creatures to tread upon it.

But the creature called man has the capacity to worry, and worry he does. [link]
That's probably what this was all about from the get go.  People fearing what they don't know.

The saving grace is in the fact that, as time goes by, we will know more and more about our climate.  And sanity will return to the discussion of trends.  And Al Gore will finally be sent into exile where he belongs.

Science is a good thing.  When administered by the right scientists.
