Tour de Groenland. Must I solve all your problems?

If the race, aka La Trek, is canceled due to heat, that would be a terrible thing Toulouse.

Lance Armstrong was great for the TdF. Nobody would have cared otherwise. He made that race and the scandal kept it in the news. Now, who cares? It's just some doper gonna win it, it's old news.

Lance Armstrong is the best thing that ever happened to the Tour de France.  My entire family was transfixed in 2002 when he went down and got up and almost got off and then went UP THE FARKING HILL by HIMSELF i couldda done it wit epo too and grabbed the MAYO JAUNE seven farking times, well, yeah, he gamed the system, alright, by only running one.  Farking.  Race.  A year.

The Tour de France.

So Boo, Lance, Boo.  You only dedicated your entire existence on the plant Earth to this miserable ungrateful French farce.  Who needs you anyway.  We fart in your general direction.

I'm too drunk right now to figure out whether that's a Haiku or not, but it should be.

Much like Fark climate change threads, the Tour is a farce and someone always gets called out by the end of it.  At least it has been since the Great Anti-Foreign Bicyclist Witch Hunt was started by the French.

The Tour de France is boring. Races are only fun if you're in them or you're betting on a short one.

On the other hand, by 2100, no one will have any oil anymore so even the least fit of us will be able to out-pedal todays' Tour de France competitors. The competition will be impressive despite the heat.

Just because putting pollution into the air is a bad thing doesn't mean that it's going to make the planet dangerously hot.  And, carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant in the first place.

Worth noting that the bikes in TdF probably cost more than many farker's cars. All said and done they cost around $30k.

I'm a bike rider and I'm with you. I ride at a state park not too far from my house that has a 4.5mi paved loop. Driving there on twisty freaking back roads, you always hit at least two road bikers riding in the middle of the damn road when there's a perfectly good paved loop without motor vehicles not more than a mile away. Pisses me off to no end.

I swear, the thing that makes global warming so hard to believe is all the hyperbole of articles like this.  Global warming so far causes rising sea level, hotter summers, colder winters, dead animals, disabilities, ugly babies, bad fashion sense, slurring of speech, diarrhea, hair loss, impotence, zombie attacks, bad Hollywood sequels, Justin Bieber, Duke, cheap beer, squirrels with big nuts, dogs and cats, living together, mass hysteria.  Stop, just stop, especially under the Sports tab.

Well not fake but those 'moderate' warming models need to be changed to extreme and the extreme changed to 'not farking likely'.

If those extreme changes happen something else happened and we are all dead.

Maybe because you can feel safer knowing a 2-3 ton pile of metal isn't going to kill you at any moment.

Seriously, get the fark off the road if your fastest is still slower than a Yugo.

This always confuses me.

I thought the idea was to deny man-made climate change. But is that too complicated, so now it's just flat out denying climate change (which is moronic since the climate has always been changing. But hey, maybe you're a moron).

Of course it is.  A greenhouse gas in a complex (mathematically chaotic) system filled with all sorts of feedbacks.   Negative feedbacks, as it turns out, for greenhouse gas increases.

I thought the idea was to deny man-made climate change. But is that too complicated, so now it's just flat out denying climate change (which is moronic since the climate has always been changing. But hey, maybe you're a moron).

The facts are:

1. Climate is changing all the time, in varying ways, including cycles of varying time lengths, up to, and including a cycle that is about 110,000 years long.

2. Man has added a LOT of carbon dioxide to the air.

3. That will warm the planet.

4. The AMOUNT it has warmed the planet so far is about a third of a degree.

5. The models have been given bad data, and predict WAY too much warming.

6. Politicians only look at the reports given them, which have the WAY high predictions.

7. All indications are that the planet will be cooling for a couple decades -- maybe cooling a LOT.

I don't know what you mean by "the idea," but I have never met anyone who claims that the climate never changes, or that carbon dioxide is not a greenhouse gas.  But those positions are what warmer alarmists argue against.
