Presented with little comment - except to say, maybe those Mayans were on to something?

I'd also "overlay" weather modification....say what....starting in the early 90s? Who knows?

Those geo-engineers have our best interests at heart....just like those central bankers.....

Chebetts-you must be refering to the military HAARP program.

and then superimpose a REAL UNEMPLOYMENT chart up there and the Mayans were dead on.

Someday we will allow mass use of DMT and figure out this who God particle...I swear the disasters are linked to the human experience...more just just havng been in one.

Dick Buttkiss's picture

How about an overlay of "militaries and governments":

"The global warming issue is then a double hoax. First, it is a fake crisis in the sense that humanity’s traditional activities are not the main cause of such warming. Second, real warming has been caused by geo-engineering, which militaries and governments have been playing with since the 1950?s."

We can just trust the wise prophet B.I.G. on that one.

It would great on a Macbook pro with retina ( A hint to the wife )

Looks like a classic head and shoulders to me which means the worst is over.

Actually... scary how close that resembles the S&P 500

The chart nearly matches the growth of "diagnosable mental conditions."

The chart nearly matches the growth of "diagnosable mental conditions."

I tried to junk you but my clickophobic mental spasms and surrealopothic condition wouldn't allow it.

It's not pretty but I get a lot of prescription drugs out of it.

Everything turns to shit in 1964..

Lyndon Johnson announced the Formation of the Great Society and all its attendant Entitlement Programs.

Now, was that a disaster or not?

there's a lot more people living more places.

If a tree falls in the forest, and no one hears it...

What color is a lemon if there is no light?...

Monedas's picture

I'm gonna market a refrigerator with a peep whole .... so you can make sure the light goes off !

Mark Wilson's picture

Not a bad idea. A couple of years ago, our fridge didn't appear to be cooling properly. Turns out the door switch for the interior light was loose and the light was staying on with the door closed.    

Boxed Merlot's picture

The answer is it has no color. Light is required to give anything "color".  Without light, any / everything is black.

This is one of those areas where theology has practical application in the physical realm.

People were given grey matter for a reason.  Now is as good a time as any to use it.

Just wish I had more of it to use.

Krugman will have his plebes on it & project the boon to GDP... [as soon as his salary demands are inked for the coming year]...

the squid should know they caused them

Flakmeister's picture

Yawn, just another signature for AGW....

buzzsaw99's picture

buy your carbon credits from the squid!

Flakmeister's picture

And what would that achieve?

Flakmeister's picture

What exactly was your point?

Were you trying to imply that I support an auction and trading of carbon allowances and purchasing bogus offsets? Sorry, but you may have got me confused with somebody else....

viahj's picture

and yet you continue to expell CO2

nmewn's picture


I'm waiting for him to call for the killing all wildlife on the planet and entombing every tree that falls in the forest inside plastic...lest more CO2 be released.

Jendrzejczyk's picture

I'm doing my utmost to consume as many cows, as rapidly as possible, to save the planet.

We must all do our part for the greater good of Gaia ;-)

Maybe if we stampeded them over cliffs like the Indians did, we could finally prove our true love of nature and gain the respect of the tree hugger class (who, by the way, live in concrete trees for the most part) constantly pointing their accusatory finger of waste and mismanagement at the very ones who supply the power, water, meat, vegetables and sewers to take it to & from their doors.

The amount of hypocrisy (and energy, thus CO2) dedicated to overheating Google server farms will only be surpassed by the by the absolute dead silence of a billion "screeching obssesed greenies" when the lights do finally go out.

Maybe Mrs. Cog is right after all.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I am extremely lucky that Mrs. Cog came into my life with an open mind and a loving heart.

<It just doesn't get any better than that.>

Manthong's picture

Out of the blue, Mrs. Thong expressed a desire to go the range with me and develop some proficiency.

That kind of surprised me.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Are you sure she isn't planning on mind. :)

<What you don't know might actually hurt you......or worse.>

Manthong's picture

Well, she does have a bit of a temper, but If she ever decided to do me in, she’d likely opt for a more subtle and delicate method.

Actually, if she was going to do something like that, it certainly would have happened by now.   :-)

Fedaykinx's picture

right on.  everyone should be competent with a rilfe/shotgun/pistol.  probably in that order, imo.

JohnG's picture

Mine too.  Started her on pistols last week.

Looks like we are entering a disaster recession. Or a blowoff top.

RopeADope's picture

Nominal disasters does not a point make.

Should put up a graph of animosity against Goldman Sachs.

piceridu's picture

blowoff top would have a different meaning...
