Well, here we go again...

Have you heard? We have two 'artic' masses - one up north and the other down south.

Guess what? The one down south is setting new records for ice mass:

"NPR failed to mention anywhere in its article that Antarctic sea ice has been growing since satellites first began measuring the ice 33 years ago and the sea ice has been above the 33-year average throughout 2012."

oh my 'clem', it is obvious you missed one of the final rinse cycles in our global warming brainwashing. these things have happened before and have caused great disturbances in our otherwise smooth takeover. we have removed all common sense quite easily from most people but have come across a few hardcases like you 'clem'. did your cable get disconnected or something? we will have you fill out a quick questionaire to see what we can do to get you fixed up and up to speed. don't worry 'clem', it's quite painless and will hardly cost you anything. remain calm 'clem', we are here to help.

Global warning's obviously a fictitious myth created and conspired to by right wing peta putos to gain control of the middle classes minds so that aboriginal societies will discontinue environmental practices which leave us without the abilities to feed our families and pets.
Is that about it???
