Dave: Well, Blarney, how’s that Global Warming working out now? Houston has the earliest snowfall ever.
Blarney: Dave, you should know you can’t take one data point and make a theory go away.
Dave: Speaking of data, how about those emails in Great Britain?
Blarney: I don’t know what you are talking about.
Dave: There has been some data washing going on at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU).
Blarney: That is the first I have heard of it. There is nothing on my major news stations (ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC).
Blarney: Fox is not a real news source. My favorite bloggers call it Faux News. Get it? Faux, Fox?
Dave: That’s really clever Blarney. You do realize that “faux” rhymes with “no” instead of “knocks”. Right?
Blarney: Of course I knew that, but you should see the right wing nuts react to it as if “Faux” is just another way to spell “Fox”. It’s rich.
Dave: But then aren’t they too stupid to know the meaning of faux? And if so, they don’t get the insult. Maybe they just think you are an atrocious speller.
Dave: But back to my topic. How does the recent cooling trend affect global warming?
Blarney: See, Dave, you just don’t get it. We quit calling it “Global Warming” years ago.
Dave: So what do you call it now?
Blarney: It’s now “Climate Change.”
Dave: So now the claim is not that man is causing global warming, but he is causing global climate change?
Dave: But the climate is always changing – it is either cooling or warming all the time.
Blarney: That’s the beauty of it! No one can deny climate change.
