CONSPIRACY THEORY OF THE DAYINCORPORATING "THE CRACKPOT HALL OF FAME"

From THE TELEGRAPH:

"Western countries have designed plans to cause drought in certain areas of the world, including Iran," Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said in the city of Arak in Markazi province.

"According to reports on climate, whose accuracy has been verified, European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump" their water on their continent, he said.

By doing so, "they prevent rain clouds from reaching regional countries, including Iran."

COMMENT: Well, we're not doing a very good job of it then. Spring crops in England have been devastated by a lack of rainfall this year.

However, Western countries probably are responsible for droughts in the Middle East. But we have achieved this without any need for secret technology. We just used car emissions, carbon burning power stations and farting cows. I think we are calling it "global warming."

  1. The clouds are not coming to south Louisiana. Except for a couple of showers a week or so ago, we haven’t had rain for months. Tom is struggling to keep his vegetable garden watered. Imagine the poor farmers!

    A better description of the change in weather conditions is “climate change”, rather than “global warming” because some areas will experience colder weather. And yes, I know that overall the planet will average warmer temperatures.

  2. Oh no. She’s in one of her “argue with everything” moods again.

    Note to self: Agree with everything Grandmère Mimi says today.

  3. Right, but take courage, MadPriest. I’m heading out of town, so I won’t be online to annoy today. As the late, great Richard Nixon said, you won’t have me to kick around anymore.

  4. That is not new thinking – people in Wyoming have been sure the west coast has been doing that for years with cloud seeding. And why are you so mean to your friends? Like Grandmère?

  5. Well, Mimi is right, you know. Climate Change is what this should be called. It was colder in the Winter out here this year, and I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be hotter in the Summer. Calling it Global Warming feeds into the idiots like Glenn Beck’s “logic,” which I think is actually the wrong word to apply to any of his thinking, but you get what I’m talking about!

  6. Global warming causes climate change, not vice versa. Calling it climate change feeds into idiots like Cardinal Pell’s “logic.”

  7. I’m a little disappointed that focus has been removed from us ‘mos, but in Iran, it is my understanding that there is no homosexuality (Barring those who have been executed for the “crime.”).

  8. President Iamanutjob (credit Jay Leno) knows almost as much about weather as he does the Shoah.

    FWIW

  9. If another country chooses to credit Britain with amazing technological breakthroughs why bat the compliment away even if it is an untruth? Oh, because we are Christians.

  10. We can all agree that religion is a waste of time, energy and money.
    And that Mainline Protestantism is another stupid thing middle class/middle aged and middle brow people enjoy.
    Ridiculous, idiotic waste of amino acids!

  11. I’m winning. But then I was always going to against such sub-standard opposition.

    But very soon I’m going to get into trouble with the nice people around here who are going to demand I stop bullying the retard.
