Cat out of the Bag

I haven’t seen this making the climate blog rounds (though I don’t pay as close attention anymore as I used to…) so I thought supporters of science and detractors alike might like to know that the cat is out of the bag and the Global Warming Hoax has been exposed. See below: Continental drift and…

Happy New Year!
