A last laugh

A trickle of scary headlines reminds us that Copenhagen is nigh. The warmists are doing their level best to ramp up the fear factor – but so far do not seem to be succeeding.

With even the Canadian weather forecasting service doing its best to emulate the UK Met Office, however, nature seems to be having the last laugh.

Reading a first-hand account of the aftermath of the British retreat from Kabul in 1842, one of the barbaric actions of the tribesmen on happening across groups of camp followers sheltering from the bitter winter was to strip them naked and to leave them to die in the cold.

Such a fate might be too kind for the warmists. They should be kept alive to bear the torrent of mockery that attends their creed, as the snow gently falls.
