Bomb Throwing Pacifist

If you took that happy, smiling guy from the box of Quaker Oats, handed him a bottle of gin and a rifle, and pissed him off to a point where he decided he wasn't going to take it anymore, you'd get a little something like this.

Maybe if we close our eyes and wish really, really hard...

From the United States Department for Really Alarming Facts People Like to Pretend Aren't True (U.S.D.R.A.F.Pe.Le.P.A.T. also known as the National Climatic Data Center ):

Last year was the warmest on record for the United States, with temperature readings pushing higher than normal during the last half of December[...]

Worldwide, the agency said, it was the sixth warmest year on record.

In December the Center had predicted that 2006 would be the United States' third warmest year, but unusual readings later that month pushed the year into first place[...]

The average U.S. and global temperature are both about 1 degree warmer than at the start of the 20th century, a change many scientists attribute to gases released into the atmosphere by industrial processes[...]

No state was colder than average in December.

Fortunately, certain anonymous aquaintances of mine are on the case:

It is warm in January. So the Global Warming freaks are all in a frenzy .The end is near. George Bush is making the globe warmer. People are stupid.

Well then, I guess I was overreacting a wee bit.  It's not like the Polar Bears have been drowning much this year or anything.  Though it will probably mean Coca-Cola ought to start looking for a new mascot soonish.
