“According to a new U.N. report, the global warming outlook is much worse than originally predicted. Which is pretty bad when they originally predicted it would destroy the planet.” — Jay Leno
“Experts say this global warming is serious, and they are predicting now that by the year 2050, we will be out of party ice.” — David Letterman
Q: How many climate change skeptics does it take to change an energy-saving lightbulb?

“Clean coal is a bit like wearing a porous condom – at least the intention was there.” — Robin Williams
“We [bald men] don’t spend all our time shampooing and rinsing our hair. It’s one of the many selfless acts we bald men perform every day to make our world a better place. The bald also don’t have use for plastic combs, or no hair dryers either so that’s gotta save on electricity. Come on. We have got to go bald – all of us. Walking around with a full head of hair is like driving an SUV or dumping toxic sludge into a river. It’s irresponsible. Hey, you hair people, shame on you!” — Larry David
In George Monbiot’s ‘Heat’ he quotes an email from one of his readers. The reader says something like: “Thank you for your excellent work in bringing the dangers of climate change to the attention of people. If we do not do something at once, the whole world will be turned into a dessert.” Monbiot replies: “Although this is an appealing prospect, unfortunately the science does not support it.”
Let’s not forget this though. Mr Obama, the world awaits.
Here’s for a peaceful 2009.
