The nose knows.


Good old Drudge hit a home run with this little melody from Barbra Streisand:

STREISAND DECLARES 'GLOBAL WARMING EMERGENCY

Coinciding with Hurricane Rita slashing the Gulf Streisand, trying to sell herself and the musical disc with Barry Gibb, sat down for an interview with ABCNEWS's Diane Sawyer.

"We are in a global warming emergency state, and these storms are going to become more frequent, more intense," Streisand urgently declares.

But Sawyer did not remind Streisand that a Category 5 hurricane struck the Bahamas with 160 mph winds -- when the singer was five years old, in 1947!

And when Streisand was 8 years old, a Cat 5 hurricane -- named "Dog" -- packing 185 mph churned-away in the Atlantic.

When she was 9, a Cat 5 storm named "Easy" ripped the seas with 160 mph sustained winds.

Streisand was 13 years old when "Janet" hit Mexico with 150 mph winds.

Streisand was celebrating her sweet sixteen as "Cleo" formed with 140 mph.

At 18, Streisand read news about "Donna" AND "Ethel" -- both storms carried 140 mph winds and formed 9 days apart in 1960!

One year later, when Streisand was 19, it happened again: Two Category 5 storms scared the world: "Carla" and "Hattie!"

"Carla" maxed out at 175 mph winds the year Streisand made her television debut on "The Jack Paar Show."

And who could forget Hurricane "Camille" -- which smashed into the United States with 190 mph, just as "Funny Girl" garners eight Academy Award nominations, including one for Best Picture and one for Barbra as Best Actress.

Here's just another blaring example of stupid is as stupid does.

She's to meteorology what Tom Cruise is to psychiatry.

What idiots.

And did Babs offer to give up one of her many homes, cars, private jets to lessen her own use of fossil fuels?

Oh, and that Gaffa lives in a fantasy world.

Oh dear. Not Gaffe again?

BTW Mike. I think that you are very handsome and I miss looking at your handsome face. Why have you replaced your handsome visage with a picture of the Constitution?

Yeah Mike, I agree with Monicar. Not that the Constitution isn't a lovely thing to look at, you are more soothing on the eyes.

Hey Fred, kinda like Sean Penn's version of being a rescuer. Just cause you can play one, doesn't mean you are one.

And Gaffauk, there are so many arguments for and against increased hurricanes that your argument is moot.

Aw shucks... I am blushing....

A friend of mine offered to do an updated photo for me.. but I kind of like that one.

Tell you what I will do... I found an old pic (really old... you all were still in High School ).

I'll put it up and see who can guess the person I am posing with.

So lampooning a Hollywood actress opinions is valid yet dismissing a meterologist's findings and predictions is moot. Or is it just inconvenient? lol

Lampooning this so-called actress and any actor/actress is always a hoot! As far as meterologist's findings, there are a lot of findings out there with a lot of opinions...

Well judging by some american bloggers - Mike, Skye and Cavalier - they seem to agree that climate change is happening. I think most scientists agree that it is happening - whether it is natural or aided by manmade greenhouse gases.

So maybe Babs has a point?

Interesting Q&A on hurricanes can be found here...

Babs is talking through her nose. Looks to me like just as many hurricanes have hit before,during, and will after her lifetime. As long as there are little green apples, there will be hurricanes. What's the big deal?

Living in the path of one, you pay to play

Out of interest Alice - putting aside what is causing it - do you believe a) that Global Warming is happening b) this will contribute to the intensity or/and frequency in hurricanes?
