Sometimes I get it all wrong. And on Global Warming, I've been wrong.
Half the the U.S. just had its mildest winter in years, with no sign of snow in many Northern states.
Most of the Great Lakes were ice-free this year.
Not a single Canadian province had a white Christmas.
There is a new study discussing a mysterious surge in global temperatures - a warming trend more intense than computer models have predicted.
Some scientists recently admitted that, because of a bug in satellite sensors, they have overestimated the extent of Arctic sea ice.
Oh....wait....never mind. The exact opposite of that has been happening.
It's been colder than a well-digger's ass.
I take it all back.
Most of this info came from Jeff Jacoby's article on "Where's Global Warming". Great stuff. Here's my favorite paragraph:
If all that (warming instead of cooling) were happening on the climate-change front, do you think you'd be hearing about it on the news? Seeing it on Page 1 of your daily paper? Would politicians be exclaiming that global warming was even more of a crisis than they'd thought? Would environmentalists be skewering global-warming "deniers" for clinging to their skepticism despite the growing case against it?
Dang right, you'd be hearing about it on the news. But the news and my daily paper aren't about reality, or climate, or anything that can be measured with a thermometer.
This is a power grab.
Please get that into your heads.
Global Warming/Cooling/Climate Change has nothing to do with the weather, and everything to do with control.
Moving on, if you can read this without laughing, you probably have stock in Kleiner Perkins.
A Global Warming protest was almost cancelled because of snow. Here is the official protest website. You've got to go there. You must go there for the pictures of people freezing while protesting the heat. Haven't they heard of irony? Shouldn't they be just a tad embarrassed?
Nahhh. They have God and Gore on their side.
They chanted slogans like "Who is hot in here / There's too much carbon in the air" while huddling against the windchill.
