After a good month online, we were finally picked up by others - and received honourable mentions by alarmists and misinformers Desmogblog
and Lou Grinzo
(see bottom of page). Thanks guys, nevertheless! We have firmly established us as the 5th bestest climate denial blog in Calgary (behind the Fraser Institute, the Calgary Petroleum Club, the Calgary Chamber of Commerce, and the Prosperity Cancer Institute
...where all the local crazies hang out).
A word about our logo, it should be made clear that it's not the CO2 molecule - CO2 does not exis
t. It is, rather, the G2T molecule: two atoms of gin and one of tonic (because at FoGT, we only synthesize doubles). Read More...

Retired weatherman Anthony Watts reports a brilliant victory by Lord Monckton
in the battlefield of
climatology, fought at Oxford Union against Lord Half-Whitty, a brilliant climatologist. Because of this brilliant victory, the laws of physics need to be changed, global warming is unreal, and the large body of science that proves the opposite must be burnt. Once again, world history has been made by a bunch of British
aristocrats. IPCC observers cried fraud as the referee of the debate was no one else but Lord Monckton’s personal child psychologist himself. Read More...

In a recent editorial on Watt’s Up With That
, Willis Eschenbach laments the fact that climate scientists never use these three precious words: We don’t know
. Imagine how this will reduce uncertainty, no more of Donald Rumsfeld’s unknown unknowns
; the world would henceforth be more clearly demarcated into known knowns
and known unknowns
. Let’s have no more obfuscating IPCC talk of qualitative or quantitative uncertainty (page 5)
, no more waffly phrases such as medium evidence
, high confidence
or the breathtakingly equivocal about as likely or not
. So let’s start demanding clear answers, just like in court: Do you know, yes or no? Read More...

Richard Littlemore from desmogblog across the Canadian cordillera wrote in a recent New Scientist article:
“A coalition of US coal and electricity companies set the tone in the 1990s with the creation of the Information Council on the Environment (ICE). It's purpose: to ‘reposition climate change as a theory not a fact’. Read More...

The intake of of chili beans at their annual luncheon
created lots of hot air in the ‘Friends of Science’ (FoS), which contributed to what they vehemently deny: anthropogenic global warming. FoS president D. Leahey allegedly attributed this intellectual flatulence to the fact that Exxon Mobile had not sponsored the luncheon with Peptobismol this year. Read More...

’Small-Scale for Small Minds’ was the motto of this year’s luncheon of the 'Friends of Science' (FoS), who followed FoGT one day behind. 27 FoS and their relatives filled three tables of 9 at the Metropolitan Centre in Calgary. Once again, it was a chili cookoff sponsored by the wives and granddaughters of FoS. “$7 for such a tasty lunch is quite reasonable for Calgary”, added guest-speaker Dr. John Christy when boarding the airport shuttle bus again.
