Another Of Rosie’s Top Sixes

DENYING GLOBAL WARMING INVOLVES A LOT OF HOT AIR The part I don’t understand about this story is the ‘growing skepticism’ part (Globe and Mail). If the science is saying one thing, then who are those saying the other now?
SO MUCH FOR THE DOME SWEET DOME: Shorter Ken Cheveldayoff: We haven’t been able to convince Stephen Harper that the proposed retractable domed stadium would be a nifty place for a medium security penitentiary or a G20 summit and we’re too scared to anger King Steve, and we don’t have a plan B. (Leader-Post)
THE MOUNTIES ALWAYS GET THEIR MAN Under the Conservative government, the RCMP seems to conduct itself as if it, as a police force, should be feared more than respected. Considering who Harper has appointed as their boss it’s no surprise that the senior members of the force should be surprised at receiving a taste of their own medicine. (Globe and Mail)

TIME FOR CANADA TO SEAL THE BORDER The Militiamen movement in the U.S. plotted to lunch a shooting war against Washington-state drug dealers, the use the money they seized in the raids to launch a Aryan war. More details here (Crooks and Liars). The scary part? The FBI sat on it’s butt until the first murders had been committed.

  1. I know it’s early and all, but could you maybe proof read before posting?

    The Militiamen are having lunch with the drug dealers?

  2. “If the science is saying one thing, then who are those saying the other now?”

    Science is not saying one thing, it is saying two things now. There is no consensus as previously claimed. The people who are saying it are scientists, just about every part of public opinion, and most politicians now too. Did you notice that climate change was not even mentioned at either the G8 or the G20? This shows that climate change is not a concern anymore. Too bad the EU is stuck with their carbon trading albatross. Losers!

    Cheer up folks, climate change is dead!

  3. Klem: you’re dangerously wrong. If you follow this blog regularly you’ll find links to a constant stream of credible, detailed information on the reality of climate change. Excuse my French, but seriously: smarten the fuck up. If you don’t want the details, you get the wrath.
