Nobody Expects the Climate Inquisition!

Man-made climate change sceptics may have to endure their period of excommunication now, but they do so--I'm quite confident--in service of the noblest of causes. For the moment, at least, their labour will keep a certain Florentine sepulchre from shaking quite so violently from the spinning bones within.

"C'mere Zarquon 5000, m'lad. Sit yourself down on your great-great-great-grandclone's cyberknee for a second. That's the way. Did I ever tell you, Zarquon, about the 21st century? No? Well here's the hyperdeal. Whereas the Renaissance gave us, amongst many many other things, the proof that the Earth is not the centre of the universe, the 21st Century provided us with the proof that we aren't the centre of time either ... Yeah, I know. Doesn't seem like much, does it ... No, that was about all they gave us."
