Christmas Turn

Over at WUWT a certain Scute wrote

9 scientists
18 PhD students (helpers)
25 or 26 “scientifically minded” tourists (who helped as well but spent much of the time falling off Argos or through cracks in the sea ice).

How about a ditty but I doubt it ends the same

On the Third day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Three French Hens,
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

You never know, might be for future Chistmas.

    Great graphic. Text opaque, per normal.

    No sea-ice melting

    3 icebreakers

    2 kids

    1 wife

    On the twelfth day of Christmas Pachauri sent to me
    Twelve modellers modelling
    Eleven borers boring
    Ten hands a-waving
    Nine dolts agreeing
    Eight trends predicting
    Seven without meaning
    Six gates a keeping

    Five … Tree … Rings

    Forestalling words
    Three blue flags
    Two furtive tomes
    And a bogus fait accompli

    That’s pretty good, AJB.
