Alas and alack (well, hurrah and what took me so long, actually) because the all-to0-aptly named Little Willy is no more. I have removed him from my links because he has banned me from his site. My crime? Merely that I passed on to him the news contained in a post below that several emminent Japanese scientists had dismissed the IPCC report as the rubbish equivalent of astrology. Over recent months I made as much allowance as possible for this weedy little grunt because, as he puts it himself, "I'm actually pretty ugly and my penis is smaller than the caucasian average", so you have to feel for him, er, metaphorically, of course. I think it is sufficient to say that he is certainly an embarrassment to those many intelligent people who hold to a view that global warming is a possibility that should be taken seriously. They would, I guess, view Little Willy's constant dribble of arrogant crudities with the disgust it deserves.
Also dismissed without a reference is Tim Lambert, an Aussie who confirms all my worst prejudices concerning both Leftie fanatics and our 'cousins' in the Antipodes. I should make clear that whatever I think about Aussies I would normally love to have some of them around me in a fight, but not the feeble, 'Timid Timmy' Lambert, a man who shrinks at the sight of opposing argument and instantly reaches for his censor's blue pencil, the mark of intellectual cowards everywhere. The same goes for Real Climate, who should be sued under the Trade Descriptions Act for a title like that! I stopped reading them when I kept coming across global warming doubters whose perfectly unremarkable comments were promptly deleted from this supposedly 'scientific' site.
I left them all in my links for so long because I wanted my readers to access both sides of the debate but those three sites fall so far short of proper discourse that they really are not worth the time and effort of reading them. However, I have left in Michael Tobis who is a confirmed 'warmist'. He is sometimes a bit crotchety but he puts up with me so that says something about his broad shoulders and good nature! Now that I have taken up the pruning shears I might take a long, hard look at some of the others on my lists. Need I add that in the unlikely event of any of these bloggers visiting here to leave a comment, they would remain untouched provided they complied with the law and kept the obscenities to a minimum.
