Glad Tidings of Great Joy

Well, I need to do a Happy Christmas posting (and here it is, folks!) so this message from wonkroom seems rather festive:

New psychological research finds that dire messages about the threat of global warming will strengthen people’s acceptance of climate science when combined with solutions, which is the approach taken by leading climate activists. For some people, their response to dire messages is strongly dependent on whether hope is offered.

(ht: Chairman Brian).

Which means, I need to present you with The Solution. And that is clearly, dress up as Father Christmas and go rowing:

    (to the tune of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”)

    He’s taking a stroke
    Feathers it right
    Gotta find out who’s pulling their weight
    Santa Claus is rowing the Cam

    [Oh no, poetry of the worse sort. Our boat, of course, is poetry in motion -W]

    Global temperatures

    1930s, and early 1940s.

    A pair? Seriously?

    OK, OK, Santa Claus has magic.

    [I meant our VIII, which is going quite well at the moment. I've never been out in a pair, and am not likely to in the near future. Sculling perhaps -W]

    Every one admits that humen’s life is high priced, but different people require cash for different things and not every man gets big sums cash. So to receive fast business loans or commercial loan would be a proper solution.
