Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

January 30, 2006

Nostradamus?

Is it just me, or does a government report that uses - surely? - no more than 50-100 years worth of data to predict climate change for the next 1000 years not reek slightly of fish?

The 1000-Year Reich? A thousand years of Met Office weather predictions? Can you imagine someone, 60 years ahead of the Battle of Hastings, producing such a document?

In the future, when much of our current knowledge and technology is forgotten or merely hilarious, will seers and prophets pore over this climate report and interpret it for their gullible followers?

  • Somebody has to undertake the role of wizard and soothesayer in the court of modern government.

    They are just employing some traditional majick and some crystal ball gazing in order to keep things ticking along, hoping that nobody notices.

    Like the eunuchs in the Forbidden Palace too.
