You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse but not to abuse.

Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important. Capture the good times. Develop from the negatives & if things don’t work out  . . . just take another shot.

    Some eminent scientists have examined the modern (relatively) literature on dragons and have found these creatures’s rise, fall and rise again corresponds almost exactly with temperatures over the last few centuries.

    JC what was your point in posting this?

    It was an April fools joke where “dragon” is used as a metaphor for AGW skeptic. Therefore, it would seem that in posting this comment, you are having a poke at yourself.

    Did you think (as I did initially) that it might be drawing attention to spurious correlation?

    Deeply cynical…but cleverly done nonetheless.
