Hey kim,
it's an agony
in 8 fits.

My brain aches.
A cryptic task
Each morn, beset.
A sad sequence of failure.
No solution ever given.

In keeping with the title of the thread, do climate scientists understand that "truth and honesty" is the obvious counter, to allegations of "alternative facts" about climate science.

Russell, If the only way you can seek attention is through passing off your blog as someone else's, you have my sympathy.

For the latest on fake news from the world's most parodied blog :

vvussell, as the article links to Skeptical Science, birthplace of the fake 97% Consensus, why should anyone take it seriously?

I think Trump is looking to cut 97% of Climate Science budgets as a result. Cook's falsification has really helped to highlight the extent of incompetence in Climate Science, even getting President Obama to broadcast about it on TV.

kim, an occasional ride in an elevator, provides some Climate Scientists with all they are capable of learning about upper atmosphere physics. Some of them are about to experience a sudden drop to sub basement salary levels. They should have listened to a Mining Engineer/Auditor years ago.

Kim. My skull is a truly lonely place where no bells ring, Murinae (I know not whether the first or second generation) nibble my synapses and cryptic clues go unanswered.

Heh, A, I was whispering to charlie what Shakun or Al whispered to Obama, who bellowed or bleated, then stumbled and bumbled.

However, I'm reminded of the ol' story about a bunch of old friends who no longer retold old jokes, but merely referred to them by number, hence one of their sessions was simply a series of numbers, followed by much mirth and many guffaws. A newcomer, seeing the play, called out a number, which was met by utter silence. Finally someone muttered that some people just don't know how to tell a joke.

Well, my poor ol' skull rattles with numbers with no meaning anymore. I love the sound, though, and I can get a beat now and then.

Kim, You know when you are hideously lost when an explanation requires explanation. The horror, oh the horror. The cranium reverberates to the sound of silence when number 17 is called. Joke bingo was never popular, unlike Mornington Crescent.

I have always found "97%" a hilarious joke, particularly the way President Obama told it. I wonder whether President Trump will laugh longer, announcing 97% redundancies in Climate Science?

Who is going to offer work to unemployed "scientists", who depended on dishonesty for their living? Russian Athletics Drug Testing Experts?
