Convenient Truths

Suse just flicked me through this link to the Dunedin Iceberg map which says its updated daily - today's one is there, as of 4pm. (The website is maintained by GNS Science, a research company owned by the government.)

A handy way for the locals to keep an eye on the hunks of Antartica that are floating by and even more of a wake-up to those still trying to pretend the 'greenhouse effect' is a conspiracy theory.

Whilst I have always believed that the Greenhouse Effect is real (and that we're all fucked so long as fuckwits like Bush ignore it), I still maintain that Bird Flu is a conspiracy theory. Perhaps one designed to take focus off real things like the aforementioned fuckedness of the world due to environmental destruction and pollution.

Yeah, that Bird Flu killing all humans thing doesn't really fly with me. (excuse the pun).

Was recently in a group where they were talking about contingency plans for "the outbreak" and I stated that I was just going to catch it first and cark it immediately, therefore avoiding the need to do any annoying 'planning in advance' now.
Went down like the proverbial lead balloon, as they were actually in the midst of organising community groups to have emergency kits and so forth.

Wrote a big long comment in response and decided that it deserved to be a whole post on my blog. Will give appropriate credit to you my dear, via a link and copy & paste of our comments in here.

If that doesn't count as featuring that I don't know what does.


Perhaps you're just in denial of this photographic evidence, despite the ensuing discussion in the comments?!
