FOG&T is another must visit website! "The problem of apparent positive trends is solved by tilting the diagram clockwise by about 16 degrees. This removes all doubts!" I have stitched this quote on a sampler in my denialist needlepoint class and it hangs proudly over my television. Whenever the weather program comes on with its warmist propaganda I fix my gaze firmly on that saying and shut my ears. It works! My denial is still as surmi as ever!

Derek - that website is brilliant! Very, very amusing.

Hi all at FoGT,

Just a super quick note to thank you for putting together a blog challenging "F"oS.

I hope that your site sees more and more traffic with time!

Kind regards, J. B.

I'm not bad at lighthearted conversational repartee, but I really admire people who can be funny  about stuff they take seriously.     Admire? phooey.  I'm consumed with envy. adelady



I just gave FoGT a plug on The Cost of Energy.  http://www.grinzo.com/energy/index.php/2010/05/26/must-see-site-fogt/

Nicely done.

Keep it up, and don't be afraid to drop me a note if there's anything I can do to help.  From the looks of things, it seems you won't need any assistance, though.
Take care,
Lou
