Well,, an update..

On the abondoned baby: Australia's foreign affairs minister, Julie Bishop, said the news that the father was a convicted sex offender was "of course of deep concern". She said: "The very tragic nature of this case raises a whole raft of issues that must be dealt with at a state and federal level as well as working with Thai authorities."

Maybe the Thai surregate will get the other baby back from Australia!

On the climate deniers.. Some of the world’s top PR companies have for the first time publicly ruled out working with climate change deniers, marking a fundamental shift in the multi-billion dollar industry that has grown up around the issue of global warming.

That's how progress goes!

A 7 month-old boy in Thailand is caught in the middle of an international battle over paternity and citizenship.

Australian immigration officials are weighing the case of Grammy, who was born via surrogacy in Thailand and was rejected by his biological parents. Grammy has down syndrome and a congenital heart defect, and is living with his 21 year-old surrogate mother in Thailand. His twin sister, born in good health, was brought back to Australia.

The case is drawing international attention because the Australian government considers Grammy a citizen. As a citizen, the boy is entitled to free healthcare in Australia, but it is unclear whether or not the nation has any jurisdiction over the boy’s case. The situation has sparked debate inside Australia about the practice of international surrogacy.

What about you?

"Public relations firms have played a critical role over the years in framing the debate on climate change and its solutions – as well as the extensive disinformation campaigns launched to block those initiatives.

Now a number of the top 25 global PR firms have told the Guardian they will not represent clients who deny man-made climate change, or take campaigns seeking to block regulations limiting carbon pollution. Companies include WPP, Waggener Edstrom (WE) Worldwide, Weber Shandwick, Text100, and Finn Partners."

This is progress, folks.

Gee... can the atmosphere tolerate the additional CO2 you just added with your silly post?

Well...? Is it a "crisis" or not?

btw, your choice of "and" in your reply means "in addition to"... thus, you agree with the hypocrisy claim, AND I acknowledge you tried to make a joke (ie, "hippopotamus".)

See...? I can play petty word games like the warmists. But please, don't further this 'definition of the word/grammar' discussion any more. First, it's silly, and second, it won't change anything... other than you adding more CO2 into the atmosphere which is (as the warmists claim) already at "crisis" levels.

OTOH... as a hypocrite warmist yourself, you really don't care what your "science" says, so it won't surprise me (or other skeptics) should you attempt some grammatical refutation.

The ball is in your court... shut up and prove yourself, or post again and prove me.

What a conundrum.

If this doof had any credibility, it'd be gone.

And let me repeat myself ... NO ONE reads your posts. So all that CO2 you're puffing into the atmosphere is ALL YOURS. YOU OWN IT, HYPOCRITE!
