Not only has global warming caused the Eskimos to be overrun by filthy robins, but now the melting of the antarctic has forced the humble penguin to take flight. So we were wrong to deny global warming – the planet is doomed.
The news from Antarctica (my ellipsis):
The BBC will today screen remarkable footage of penguins flying as part of its new natural history series, Miracles of Evolution.
Camera crews discovered a colony of Adélie penguins while filming on King George Island, some 750 miles south of the Falkland Islands…

BBC1 viewers will see the penguins not only take flight from the Antarctic wastes, but fly thousands of miles to the Amazonian rainforest to find winter sun.
It’s all caused by the evolutionary pressures of global warming – now all the antarctic snow has gone, it looks like this:
To make retribution for my previous denial of global warming, I’ll be signing up with the al Qaeda chapter of Greenpeace today.
