Occasional Friday linkdump

Matthew has been let near a keyboard again, and fired out a few emails in the process. Mad as a box of trouts and will make you laugh harder than a hake. Possibly the Best Thing To Have Been Written On Teh Interweb Today. Go read.

Dr. Vee on coat-tail surfing on the crest of last night’s tidal surge. Sums up my feelings perfectly:

“With the listeners having had it explained to them precisely what was causing the rising waters in the south east of England by an actual meteorologist, politician Chris Ballance obviously felt the need to phone up and make sure that some spurious guff about climate change got broadcast. It seemed to me like a crass attempt at making party political gains, exploiting and capitalising on the genuine worry people felt about lives and property.

I am not a climate change sceptic by any means. Funnily enough, I am readier to accept the expertise of qualified physicists, meteorologists and climatologists over the deniers who approach the issue from a political, ideological perspective.

But I can’t help but notice that environmentalists have managed to get themselves into a position where the slightest freakish event is put down to climate change. There is no scope any more for one-off events, meteorological coincidences or freak conditions. It’s all climate change now.”
