    Thank you for your homage to the beloved Calvin and Hobbes. No thank you for using them to spread your dangerous message of denial.

    Even Hobbs is too smart to be a “denier”.

    Nasa scientists are just such a dim lot…as well as thousands of climate scientists who are sooo poorly educated,right? www.skepticalscience.com

    Yes comrade, there are no ends to the schemes we have to expropriate capital from the industrialists. Happy redistribution!

    Yep. It snowed so the climate change statistics dating back 50 years are all wrong. Fire up the V-8, Maud, let’s drive around the block.

    The trouble, Parker, is that what Varvel views as “nay-sayers”, “doom-sayers or harbingers of doom”, are scientists who are warning us about the effects of anthropogenic climate change.


    If you meant the nay-sayers in your comment to mean anthropogenic climate change(ACC) deniers, then you’re at odds with Varvel’s message.


    Note the backward “e” in “beware”; that derides the intellect of the “snowman” that held up that placard, the other placard has still visible “end is near”, an obvious derisive criticism that equates ACC to those often caricatured ‘loony’ harbingers of doom.
    Usage of the term “global warming” juxtaposed with scenes of snowmen and the exploitive misuse of our beloved Calvin is just plain awful.


    …if you think those who are alerting us to the effects of anthropogenic climate change are fools then…hmm. Then we are at odds with each other. :-/


    By the way, anthropogenic climate change includes the concept of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).

    derided with a “Yes comrade, there are no ends to the schemes we have to expropriate capital from the industrialists. Happy redistribution!”


    What troubles me most is that ACC/AGW deniers usually take their opposition to ACC/AGW from a partisan or political position.
    Science doesn’t really come into it. Sure, they’ll try quote the odd ‘scientist’ who is at odds with the global consensus within the scientific community as their proof but they seek these out and cling to them in order to fit them to their political world-view.


    Very, very worrying.

    1. “weather” and “climate” are not the same thing.
    2. “Global warming” results in “climate change” which can mean colder weather and overall climate in certain areas.
    3. I’d be better off explaining this to the dog. He is just as intelligent but at least pretends to be listening.

    Perhaps political cartoonists should be required to take a course on climate and weather so that they would understand the difference between the two. I think it’s unfortunate that global climate change has gotten labeled in the popular press “global warming.” That has led people who don’t understand the issues (or don’t want us to understand the issues) to think (or pretend to think) that the now well-established theory of global climate change means that for each of us, everywhere, every day will be a couple of degrees warmer. When we have a cold snap in a region, this leads people like the dullard Sen. Inhofe and others to think that global climate change has been refuted.

    “Not all scientists agree with climate change propaganda…” Sure, thousands of world scientists, NOAA,NASA,and the FINEST scientists, the Finest scientific journals are just gathered in a back closet some where collaborating on saving mankind, and you think it’s a left wing conspiracy.Snerk!

    @ahab

    No, not a conspiracy, but some kind of nutty leftist religion based science and fudged results to get what is desired.
    When all the grant money is going to those who support the global warming theory, and none to those who do not support the theory,
    guess what people looking for grant money are going to say.

    Most of those scientists contributing to the IPCC were unpaid for their efforts! See www.aaas.org source!
