Global warming is a strange, inexorable force determined to take away our sandy beaches, our ski resorts, our air conditioning and everything good in life. That’s what well-paid people who fly around the world in huge jet airplanes keep threatening.
And, wouldn’t you know it, now scientists are claiming that redheads may be wiped out in Scotland as the northern third of the island of Great Britain becomes sunnier as a result of climate change.
The theory goes that red hair is an evolutionary response among human beings to a lack of sunlight, explains the Daily Record, a Glasgow rag.
How can a “DNA expert” possibly know there’s going to be more sunshine in Scotland?
Because he stayed at a holiday inn. see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0o0Jjtvq0Y
well its the scientific consensus that the ozone is degrading, allowing more UV rays to earth.
As a dna expert he knows red hair and pale skin are probably an evolutionary adaptation, to better absorb the minimal amount of sun some areas of the planet receive.
It’s a bogus article by any standard. Posting it here is lame. Click bait.
Just a researcher who is trying to get his research recognized and is most likely trying to get grant money from somewhere. That is how it’s done in today’s scientific climate. The best way to get money for research is to somehow connect it to globalwarmingclimatechangedisruption, and viola! The grants just start flowing. This guy is actually pretty clever. He’s realized that the only way to get some funding is to say that his research is connected to GWCCD. It doesn’t matter that it’s just a slight possibility, that it may somehow be tenuously, remotely connected to it. He’s found a possible funding path is what he’s done. Score!
Who says he needs a grant? Stop sucking stuff out of your thumb plz.
You may express your opinion and argue points all day long. But you may not presume to direct what it is that I can or can not post here. Although I do need to revise my speculation. The guy is not a researcher so it is not grant money he is after. But he does own a DNA testing lab. Hmm, I still think he’s clever using GWCCD to get free advertising. I mean look at the press he’s getting, and we’re talking about it here. Clever.
Press is one thing, grant whoring (and accusations of such) is another. Anyone with half a brain figured this one out immediately. Not everything is a nail, so sometimes you gotta stop being a hammer. Or a bag of hammers.
You know, reading your post has reminded me just how much I really don’t care what you think.
There’s a crafty jab. I’ll let it slide.
I’ve figured it out.
“Rob N. Hood” is a plant from within.
He/she makes outlandish comments to feed the fire but he/she is actually a conservative.
I don’t think so. I’m sure the one most offended by your speculation is RNH, but I’m also a little offended by that because I would have to be complicit in the deception. And I can assure you that my arguments with RNH over the years have been in earnest. And if I was not complicit in the deception, that would make me a blithering idiot for not seeing through said deception. So from my point of view you are calling be either a liar or an idiot.
Hah. I think Ol’ Rob’s been trolling the site (under one name or another) since it’s inception in 2007 (or round-about). Plant? Maybe. Conservative? No. From within? Definitely not.
Yep, Dan and you love it. Every extra click of it… Saved this site from total echo chamber blankness, more than once. I don’t care anymore- you guys won this round, and I’m bored by it all. Neil is the true “hero” here of course. Nothing beats a true believer with extra time on his hands, and a dark libertarian heart. Voting rights are where it’s at now- and Dan’s got that covered too of course. Busy busy. No rest for the wicked.
That is a little egocentric of you to say Rob. There have been plenty of people who share similar opinions to yours posit their comments, thoughts, spite, and vitriol here over the years. This site attracts plenty of lunatics! As if your voice, and your voice alone has been the lonely cry in the wilderness here? Get over yourself. You are definitely the longest running one. But this has never been the “echo chamber” that you have said it’s been.
It’s just a basic fact. I’m not proud of it, just that it’s the truth. You don’t like or approve anything I say. Been a thorn in your side all this time. But I’ve taught you a thing or two here, IMHO, such as avoiding hypocrisy, not being so easily riled/offended, and maybe some other things I can’t think of right now. You’ve come a long way actually, and that’s credit to you, more than me, although you needed those kicks in the butt. All that aside- I just read something about how supposedly the majority of American’s now believe in AGW, or perhaps it’s just the warming they believe in, and not the AGW part. I don’t know for sure now. It should be something to look into. Because for some time now I have thought that your side already “won” the argument. Maybe the tide is turning- but like I said I don’t know for sure. But- it is pretty much consensus that it’s too late to do anything about it. So in that sense you’ve won- at least for now. It will be interesting, maybe, to see how you deniers react when the heat really hits the fan and things get really nasty, e.g. more fires, starvation, flooding, etc.
Sure! I’ve learned a thing or two from you, but I learn things from people I disagree with all of the time. But have you learned anything from me? I don’t think you would admit it if you have. That is one of the things I don’t like about you Rob, you always lay in with a very condescending attitude. You lecture, and you disseminate propaganda. Like the thing you just read about “supposedly the majority of American’s now believe in AGW, or perhaps it’s just the warming they believe in, and not the AGW part.” Now look at the I posted after this one “Dishonest global warming reports are good, as long as they promote certain agenda, paper says”. Does anything add up there?
You always talk down to us as though your opinions are unassailable, and above reproach. Well they’re not.
“It will be interesting, maybe, to see how you deniers react when the heat really hits the fan and things get really nasty, e.g. more fires, starvation, flooding, etc.”-RNH
Actually it won’t be at all interesting what the reaction of the GWCCD true believer’s will be when it doesn’t get warmer because we already know what end of the world cults do when their predictions do not come to pass. They double down, come up with excuses and pick a different date. Al Gore’s 10 year deadline is coming up in just under 2 years from now. The Arctic will be ice free by the summer of 2012, (It wasn’t). How many times do the predictions have to be wrong before you realize that they have no idea what they’re talking about?
This is news then to the ancient Hebrews. ESAU and his twin brother JACOB (who later becomes ISRAEL) were both described as red haired. They did not originate in SCOTLAND as I recall, in fact somewhat further south and far more sunny. So I guess that theory is a dead end. The Tribes descended from the twelve brothers that became the nation of Israel included DAN, tall blond and red haired people, later driven from Istael to settle in the north (Europe). Ledgend is they hunted and farmed, migrated to the lowlands and settled the land of the Danes…Dan, Dane, Hmmmmmmm….
Nice typical diatribe Neil.. Project much? I made a serious comment with a question re: whether most people (the majority) now believe in global warming (a shift of note) and if they also believe in AGW or not. That seems to me IMHO to be a pretty important question and distinction, of which this site should be anxious to explore further. Instead we get another serving of vitriol and victimization from you. In addition, IMO many people also seem to now agree for the most part that it is too late to do anything about global warming/climate change. That too is very significant to your mission here and personal demons re: taxes etc. Is this talking down to you? Absurd. As if your tone is any different.
Yes, and dishonest global warming reports are good, as long as they promote a certain agenda. You are on the liars side so don’t give me this crap. You do not occupy the high ground.
Wow- great non-reply. Back to the basics, huh?
What do you want me to say?
Eric, where did you get the picture of the redhead? Do you have permission to use it, or are you just a thief?
Eric is the original author of the piece from the Daily Caller. This is a re-posting of that article from there. I think it is highly unlikely that Eric will be reading the comments on his article here.
