Two years ago, in the Seattle PI, columnist Joel Connelly compared Global Warming deniers to Holocaust deniers.
We now know that Connelly and the other members of the global warming cult were taken in by one of the greatest scams in the history of science. As “scientists” colluded to phony up their data to hide the fact that the planet was not warming… but it was and is actually getting cooler, as blogged by KIRO’s Dori Monson:
It’s Apple Cup week, and you know what that means — rounding up the records, rolling down the windows and throwing said records out said windows, writes Bob Condotta in his Seattle Times Husky Football blog.
Though the way the Cougars and Huskies are going these days, they’d probably earn a fine for littering in the process.
For the third straight year, neither Washington nor Washington State has a winning record entering their annual rivalry game at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Husky Stadium — UW at 3-7, WSU at 1-10.
In fact, only once since 2003 has either team come into the game better than .500 — WSU at 6-5, falling to 6-6 when the Huskies won 35-32 in 2006.
It doesn’t help soothe the pain to know that just to the south, Oregon and Oregon State are gearing up for one of the biggest Civil Wars ever Dec. 3, the winner assured a spot in the Rose Bowl.

UCLA deserves to play in a bowl game.
It might be tough to convince bowl representatives – since there wasn’t one in attendance at the Rose Bowl on Saturday.
The Bruins became bowl eligible, earning their sixth win in a 23-13 victory over Arizona State. The Bruins were terrific defensively as they forced six turnovers, including an interception and fumble return for touchdowns.
There’s only one thing left for the 6-5 Bruins to do to secure a bowl invitation. The crowd seemed to know just what it will take when it started chanting: “Beat ‘SC! Beat ‘SC!”
UCLA needs to beat its crosstown rival in order to play a December game.

Did Pete Carroll’s assistants leaving for new jobs have an impact on the team?
Don James: I didn’t think so but maybe it’s true. Pete Carroll is the defensive coordinator. The offense hasn’t changed, the coaches have changed. Maybe with them coming in from Denver, they had a difficult time with it. They weren’t very dynamic. They don’t like to run the ball. They will very seldom run the ball twice in a row. They’re a great offensive team when it’s going. This is the first time the quarterback and the receivers (they lost their best receiver) didn’t get it going. They didn’t have other people to come in there. I think that probably made a difference, a combination of things. Not a good year.

The Cardinal destroyed the Trojans 55-21 last night. The Trojans were #9 and the Cardinal were #25. Both teams have three losses now. Stanford deserves to leapfrog USC in the national rankings.
This time nobody is saying that a Stanford victory at USC is impossible. Coach Jim Harbaugh hasn’t remarked that some people think his team could lose 1,000 to zero. The Las Vegas oddsmakers haven’t ridiculed the matchup by making USC a 40-point favorite.
Nobody is laughing at Stanford anymore.
But that was the mood two years ago, on Oct. 6, 2007, when the Cardinal last ventured to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
USC had won 35 consecutive home games. Stanford, 1-11 the year before, was coming off a 38-point loss and starting a quarterback who had thrown three passes in his college career.
“They absolutely seemed to have no chance,” said Tony Sinisi, odds director for the Las Vegas Sports Consultants. “Stanford looked like a zero shot to win.”
But the “zero shot” won, shocking USC and 85,125 spectators on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Tavita Pritchard to Mark Bradford with 49 seconds to play. The final score was 24-23.
