    The greatest political predictor in the history of the world launches a brilliant sting to expose climate changers and their hard wired cog diss. This is truly masterful…

    “What the heck is “climate denial”? Is that even a thing?

    I mentioned on Periscope the other day that I created a Sunday comic as a cognitive dissonance trap. I wanted to see if I could make an argument about the reliability of ECONOMIC models and dupe irrational people into labelling me a climate denier.”

      Yup. I enjoyed his comic & got his point when you posted it previously. Mind you, *climate deniers* are not a *thing* any more, c. Now they are *climate skeptics* – which is equally risible as a description of course. 😕

      (I will be taking ground-pentrating radar up North in Nov, by the way. I’ve been contracted by an un-named agency to search a certain rural property for suspected bureaucratic human remains. I’ll be disguising the equipment as a classical guitar in a carry-bag. Dont tell Al.) 🕵

        Good to hear you’ll be making the pilgrimage north G. I hope we all get to hear about the experience. Give some advance notice and you never know what might happen.
        Cheers,c

            Your secret is safe with me G. Whose the stray?

              Sorry. No collar. No microchip. No registration tag. Not in the missing animals websites either. Feisty though.

              Feisty eh? As in ‘touchy and aggressive’. That narrows the field to two

              Al & me are tough enuff to to handle it. Hopefully.

              as long as you don’t offend the taniwha G, Al’s income stream is secure

              Might depend on the repairs needed after we leave.

              Just joking – I will be treating it like ma’s place. Nothing will be damaged & it will be spotless when abandoned for the return to cyclone city. With a bit of luck the plane’s wings will be flapping when I come in to land at Welly airport. I usually doze until the planes starts bumping all over the place so I know we’re near Welly airport. 💪 🌪

    We’ll see. Picked up another stray who seems keen to help me wreck the place. Don’t tell Al.

      Yea well Gez if I was goin on this pilgrimage an had my LL ideals opinions an fine set of values challenged, I would be burning a pot an washing the sotty oily residue off with the supplied dish cloth … an for the cherry … wiping it cleaner with the supplied Tea Towel. Does that class as ‘wrecking the joint’? Hehe There is mishchief going to Kororareka. It appears.

        I think there’d be a sign up indicating that’s verboten by now Possers. 😉

          Beware of my possum trap, Possum. Got to move it back to the cabins as I saw droppings there again today. Possums mess with my cabins at their peril.

          Seriously, my wife danced a little jig hearing you two are coming. Looking forward to some music too.
