IPCC Defends Use of Divination

NEW YORK CITY, NY - A spokesman for the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has defended the panel's use of divination to forecast melting glaciers in the Andes. Said Sanjuk Patel, "We employed an Augur who watched the flight of various birds. By studying the birds' formation, he was able to predict that global warming was melting glaciers in the Andes. This man is credentialed at an important Augury school. What more do you need?" Answering his own question, Patel said the Augur's work was subjected to robust peer-review. "A Chinese sorcerer dropped a handful of magic sticks. When he picked them up, they all pointed in the direction of Chile." In addition, a man who dowses for water was asked by Patel whether the Andes' glaciers were melting. He felt it was probably so. "It's not like we pull this information out from between our hams," said Patel. "Global warming is too vital an issue to be left to chance."

Hey! Where do I sign up? There's a few chicken bones and some dice just lying around collecting dust. The black cat will look good on the resume too. Finally, Java will be paying for his keep. Oh, and if you were wondering, the cat came pre-named. I would have been much more inventive with something like Pepper or Midnight.

What am I missing here? I'm sure you realize that Interesting News is a satire site ... though honestly I wouldn't be surprised if the IPCC did something equally stupid as they made up their fake data. But I'm thinking I'm missing something of your humor ("Not a dream! Not an imaginary story"... just a fake story??)

Old DC Comics humor, whenever they were going to make a genuine continuity change, sorta like what the AGW movement is going through now...
