Today is Thanksgiving Day, the last Thursday in November. This day marks the beginning of a long family-oriented weekend for most Americans. For Bajans, the Anglican Harvest Sunday is similar to Thanksgiving. The difference is that in America, this four day weekend is a major event. Airports are packed as people try to reconnect with their families. Merchants are busy promoting the unofficial beginning of the commercial Christmas season.

We Americans have much to be thankful for, but I would like to focus on what is most important to me.
- All of my immediate family will be with me today.
- We are all in good health.
- We all have plenty of good food to eat and a comfortable place in which to live.
- I am also grateful that the widely predicted threat of a “Global Warming” disaster has been shown to be overrated. “Global Warming” alarmists have been stymied as the conspiracy in exaggerating warming data has been exposed. (see below)

Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more.
And, perhaps most reprehensibly, a long series of communications discussing how best to squeeze dissenting scientists out of the peer review process. How, in other words, to create a scientific climate in which anyone who disagrees with AGW can be written off as a crank, whose views do not have a scrap of authority.
