Globalis Warmanitis is a serious disease affecting hundreds of millions. The symptoms start slowly, even one or two of the early warning signs is enough. If you have a family member or friend experiencing these symptoms, act quickly and get professional medical attention. They could be the result of early onset Globalis Warmanitis an insidious disease which has reached pandemic proportion. Symptoms should be treated as an emergency as the progress of the disease can reach a tipping point with rapid unstoppable progression following. Serious end stage physical symptoms have been reported, including; dizzyness, blurred vision, urge to paint protest signs, hysteria, spontaneous nudity, hot flashes, confusion, dementia and eventually psychosis.

If you have any of these early warning symptoms, please contact The Air Vent immediately for guidance. All inquiries are kept 100 % public, guidance will be handled in a tough love manner by Dr. Id – B.S.M.D.

Early symptoms are known to include:

1. Belief in the unbiased truth of government funded science.

2. Belief that snow is a significant sign of global warming

3. Belief that drops in global temperature are falsified by the guys drawing the squiggly lines.

4. The knowledge that every credible scientist believes in CO2 global warming

5. A deep warm feeling that the UN IPCC has our best interests at heart

6. Knowledge of the complex science which shows that the sun does NOT heat the earth.

7. Belief that big energy wants global warming to go away because sales of expensive renewable energy are not in their best interest.

8. Understanding the reasons why Al Gore deserved his Nobel Prize.

9. Belief that legislation can regulate global temperature.

10. The belief that the earth has remained at the same temperature, unchanged for thousands of years.

If you, your family or friends are experiencing any of these symptoms, take heart because Dr. Id – B.S.M.D is here to help. Together we can stop this pandemic before it’s too late.

    Wow, talk about heaping onto the blame pile.

    Happy New Year, Jeff, and keep it coming

    Oh! Doctor! Thank Goodness. I thought I was among the few uninfected people left. Actually, your blog along with Wattsup and Climate Audit have helped me maintain a sane perspective.

    I hope you have a whole boatload of assistant B.S.M.D.s at your clinic, because it’s my impression that this pandemic of Globalis Warminitis is affecting millions.

    Maybe you could help me with an individual problem. It appears that all of my grandson’s teachers are in the terminal stages of this disease, and are trying hard to infect his whole class. What can I do?

    Ron,

    You are in a tough situation, treating Globalis Warminitis yourself is not recommended but if required you have a few options. Modern medicine tells us it is a battle of contrasts.

    First, a heavy dose of science and math are required. This builds the basis of critical thinking. If the kids are young, a good barehanded snowball fight will keep an open mind.

    A few months after the snowballs, take em’ to the beach and subtly ask them which is better.

    A steak dinner contrasted with a vegetarian dinner is also a good consideration since steaks are bad too.

    If the problem is really bad, work together with their parents to take their allowance for a month. Tell them it’s a tax to stop global warming. If they are skeptical, let them know you have their best interests at heart.

    All of the above are good for building an adult understanding of what we are faced with. Still, even with the full power of modern medicine some will be lost.

    As far as the teachers, they sound like end stage. Not much we can do for em’ any more.

    Good luck my friend.

    Ron,

    Come on over to Globalwarminghoax.com and we can help you with a letter you can give to your Grandson’s Teachers!

    After taking their allowance, have them hoe the garden, walk everywhere, and especially they can’t watch TV or the movies. Have you noticed how big the carbon footprint is for those industries on a per capita employment basis? Limos, blowing up recyclable and even working automobiles and trucks, floodlights, broadcasting, all those people using cars to go to the movies. No wonder Hollywood types suffer from carbon guilt!

    Jeff Id,

    You lost. You are part of a politically irrelevant extremist minority. Get used to it!

    The Republican party lost for, among many excellent reasons, its religious fundamentalism, anti-science and anti-intellectualism.

    You represent the very worst elements of the Republican party.

    And your side lost.

    So keep on crying about the Obama administration. Conservative laments are music to my ears. Keep on crying, Jeff. I love the sound of conservatives crying.

    Just keep in mind: You lost. The battle is over. You are part of a politically irrelevant minority and shall always remain so. Stuck in irrelevant land with the creationists.

    Florida is beautiful

    David is end stage.

    As the literature teaches us about the progression of Globalis Warminitis, the telltale signs of psychotic paranoia are creeping in. I recommend heavy doses of Valium and 24 hour supervision.

    Dr. Id, B.S.M.D.

    NO, I AM THE TRUE TROLL OF THIS BLOG!

    NO, ME, JEFF SAID I WAS!!!!

    David, Denialism is all about creating doubt without supplying valid contrary evidence. The fact that everyone but a small cabal of PR flacks and armchair investors has figured it out would of course fall on deaf ears in such a case – it’s not relevant to the mission. Jeff’s post above, which is a sorry blend of long-outdated laughably crazy straw men, may serve as one example of what Denialists sometimes refer to as ‘debating the issue’.

    Much is made on this blog of the financial motivation for AGW researchers (who, most of them, could most likely simply go back to predicting long range weather for the military.) To figure out the real motivations here on this end, you might ask the author what is likely to occur in his profession of Aeronautics once carbon cap-and-trade is implemented. ;)

    “To figure out the real motivations here on this end, you might ask the author what is likely to occur in his profession of Aeronautics once carbon cap-and-trade is implemented.”

    I own a ‘green’ company which has probably directly saved more energy and CO2 production than all the people you know combined. So in short — I get rich!

    Now THAT was cool!

    I just don’t believe that CO2 or natural/unnatural global warming is as big a problem as stated. There are reasons these people have for exaggeration and you are being tricked into believing the worst case.

    – I can safely say exactly the same thing. ;)

    There are reasons these people have for exaggeration and you are being tricked into believing the worst case.

    – Ah, but you see, I do not believe the worst case. You, on the other hand, are spending a lot of time misrepresenting AGW beliefs as some sort of ‘worst case’. Generally sans documentation; you may wish to check out the recent comments to your ‘Nobel Prize Physicist’ post, in which you lose the credibility to make any such statement.

    “I can safely say exactly the same thing.”

    Well we know your motive then don’t we.

    Hello Jeff ID,

    * “I own a ‘green’ company which has probably directly saved more energy and CO2 production than all the people you know combined. So in short — I get rich!”

    This is pure crap, Jeff. It is easy to lie on the internet.

    Which is easily demonstrated simply by the subject matter of this blog.

    Don’t you know … you lost!

    Keep on crying, conservatives! Crying and conservativism go so very well together!

    Nature is beautiful, conservativism is a lie

    Jeff, don’t feed the religious AGW trolls, these are the worst.

    nitpick:

    It’s actually supposed to be “illegitimi non carborundum”, but it’s the thought that counts.

  16. cmb said

    Since Jeff sidestepped my comment that anyone can claim anything on the internet, I’ll simply ask outright what Jeff’s company produces, and what evidence he can give us of this.

    There’s an interesting thread on “Carbon Neutral” on the 12/30 posting of the “rank exploits” blog.
