– NASA experts warn, ‘expect the Thames to freeze over in the winter’

– Met Office releases new figures which show ‘no warming in 15 years’

The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.

The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.

Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997. Meanwhile, leading climate scientists yesterday told The Mail on Sunday that, after emitting unusually high levels of energy throughout the 20th Century, the sun is now heading towards a ‘grand minimum’ in its output, threatening cold summers, bitter winters and a shortening of the season available for growing food.

… We are now at what should be the peak of what scientists call ‘Cycle 24’ – which is why last week’s solar storm resulted in sightings of the aurora borealis further south than usual. But sunspot numbers are running at less than half those seen during cycle peaks in the 20th Century.

The Double Edged Sword of Welfare

By Robert Mackay

I had lost touch with three of my best friends, all brothers, many years ago, and I recently ran into them. Darnell was the oldest. He had made a fortune for several years and had wisely invested his money. He lived off his investments and works low-paying, dead-end jobs just for something to do.

Darnell talked me into working at the Temporary Agencies’ Distribution Center job for just one day for the fun of it. A big guy named Nathan who was loading the truck next door was doing his best to crush, drop, and mutilate as much of the product as he could. “$7.50 an hour! That’s $48 a day after taxes, minus bus fare and lunch. How am I supposed to feed my kids?”, Nathan was asking me. He was doing his best to get even with the company and had found a way to achieve job satisfaction. Ramon, the forklift driver, showed up with another full pallet to load onto our truck.

“Hey Nathan”, Ramon said, “You’re going about this all wrong you know.”

“Hey man, I know how to load a truck”, Nathan told him.

“No, I mean your financial career strategy”, Ramon replied.

Nathan came out and sat down, and spoke. “When I win the lottery I’m going to buy this place and burn it. I’ve been meaning to ask you Ramon, how do you do it anyway? What’s your angle? You have a car, and kids, and always have money to stay drunk all day, but you only make a little more than me?”

“Tell your wife to divorce you,” Ramon answered with a sly grin. “You move out, she goes on welfare, then you move back in. Have your mail and everything go to a friend’s address and never accept certified mail. Change jobs every few months. When you are home, you just happen to be visiting, (seven days a week). You’ve been trying to play a game that you can’t win. The real game is that you have to make your own rules or you don’t get your slice of the pie. Just think, your family will get everything — free rent, free utilities, clothing, medical care, expenses. Your wife even gets to quit her stupid dead-end job. I guarantee that the two of you will get along much better and your marriage will improve. Then anything you make here is 100% yours. It’s all beer money.”

“It’s that easy?”, Nathan asked with uncertainty.

“Sure is, come over to my apartment tonight.”, Ramon replied. “Don’t feel bad. If you worked your job two shifts a day, you still couldn’t support your family. – There’s nothing to feel guilty about. You didn’t make the rules and you can’t change them.”

The buzzer rang for break time. Darnell was having an argument with two guys from the receiving department. “It’s your own fault that you are poor. You waste your money on booze, dope, clothes, and anything that will make you feel good today. You don’t try to save anything or learn anything so that you can get a better job. You don’t think long-term. You could work a second job for a while and get a car. You could start a second business working for yourself on the side. Clean carpets, sell hot-dogs, there’s tons of opportunities. This is the land of opportunity. Both guys started laughing at Darnell. All these companies are just going to rip us off at slave wages, so why should we work twice as much? That’s stupid. It’s better to get even.”

Pham, the Vietnamese immigrant, got into the argument. “If you clowns owned this place you would be ripping-off everyone even worse.”

“Why don’t you go back to where you came from?”, was the unpleasant reply. “You immigrants are taking away all our jobs.”

Pham kept calm. “You are poor because of your mind. You think all wrong. You think everyone owes you something, and it’s just take, take, take. If the system is so unfair, how come my family has been so successful. My brother came here 10 years ago with no money, and he spoke no English. Today he owns a grocery, a restaurant, and two apartment buildings. I will be successful, too. I work two shifts a week, and I paint houses on weekends working for myself. I will save and open a business.”

Nathan was angry and yelling. “You foreigners cheat. There’s usually three or four families of you in one apartment. You eat all the dogs and cats in the neighborhood.”

“You don’t get it”, Pham explained. “We grow a lot of our own vegetables and raise chickens. We work together as a family, so that one of us at a time can own something. You could do the same.”

“Are you kidding? You haven’t met the jerks I have for a family!”
