None. There's a consensus that it's going to change, so they've decided to keep us in the dark.

With the new "green" lightbulbs, they have to be changed by guys in biohazard gear!!!

BTW, the HERE link refers back to Tigerhawk blog.

From the Australian blog Bucket of Money:
Q: How many Climate Scientists does it take to change a light-bulb?

A: One. One to choose the light-bulb, one to authorise the expenditure, one to install it, one to check it is installed properly, one to test the room is lit properly, and one to determine when it next needs replacing.

The following joke from the website has a little more oomph:
Q: What does a Climate Change Believer call it when a people vandalise public buildings with slogans, or sabotage power stations?

A: Civil disobedience.

Q: What does a Climate Change Believer call copying emails and documents from a Climate Change research facility, which demonstrates scientists behaving in a less-than-scientific manner?

A: Illegal cyber-terrorism that endangers all mankind

Here is another:
Q: What does a Climate Change believer say when winter is quite cold, there is a lot of rain, and snowfall in the Victorian ski-fields is the best for years?

A: “Weather is not Climate”.

Q: What does a Climate Change believer say when Adelaide has a November heatwave, including a day which is the hottest since 1962?

A: “Told you so!”
