In a brief Zeit article on winter fashion from 13 October 2023, one reads the following deeply amusing lines: Winter may no longer be cold, but our jackets are getting thicker and thicker. This fashion satisfies our longings for a climate that no longer exists.
There are few things more beautiful than a sunny day after a snowfall.
The article about heavy winter coats being a psychological prop is indeed very funny. However, the True Believers will simply come back with "It's not global warming, it's global climate change!" which is a figleaf for anything contrary to their narrative.
As a former True Believer, I am entitled to say this.
Happy Christmas to Eugyppius and family in beautiful snowy Bavaria from very cold and frosty Blighty. Bird choppers still out of action and CCGT keeping us all afloat, so to speak, while the verbal emissions rise at Cop28 in Dubai.
Several places here now snowed in but Nut Zero is going ahead.....
Sceptics will be delighted to know that HM the K, PM Sunak and Foreign Sec 'Call me Dave',each took a separate private jet flight to Dubai to lecture the great unwashed on the need to stop global warming.
And a holy Christmas season to you!
wishing everyone a joyous christmas season too.
what a beautiful place you live in. i am fortunate too. unlikely to ever have my own little house but from my windows i can see the river just outside and the mountains nearby, and we've already had a very light snowfall and can expect the river to freeze over sometime between now and spring. i am very grateful god invented polyester fleece and that our fabulous local thrift store gets lotsa lotsa returns from the l. l. bean mall store and i own a significant percentage of 'em now.
Beautiful photos. What a wonderful world.
This morning's Bloomberg editorial featured the same claim: 2023 is the hottest on record. The "proof" offered was worse than lame. Perhaps this is a coordinated campaign from the Warmistas.
have a wonderful First Advent yourself! Munich broke the snow record (measured since 1933) for December. On the 2nd day of the month. The members of the new Globalist religion (Covidians, Climatologists, Sexual Perverts, etc.) are never merely wrong, they are always Dumb-and-Dumber wrong...
I wish you good tidings of great joy. Civilized life is still awesome and well worth protecting. Images such as these should get more attention than paid protesters rampaging through our cities.
Season's greetings Eugyppius. Thanks again for all that you do.
the old "global boiling" at work. call greta! the apocalypse is at hand!! she'll be so pleased.
Thanks for the photos.
Although not a fan of cold/snow/ice/winter, it's quite picturesque. In due course, I'm likely to see similar views out my window in southern New England.
Note: "out my window." I prefer to stay INSIDE.
Time for more needlework.
Hilarious. Just wonderful to read. These Climate Clowns are the ridiculous gift that keeps on giving.
God is such an artist. He gives us beautiful scenery. " For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made." - Paul, Romans 1
A joyous season to you too, Eugyppius! I take the snow as a sign of divine favour.
