Boy, aren’t you glad the Copenhagen Climate Summit flopped? Just think how much colder it would be if that gathering of brilliant minds had actually saved the planet from global warming. Kidding. But are you thinking what I’m thinking? If we really care about our freezing (and dying) fellow man, we all need to do our part to warm up the planet. We should be outside producing as much greenhouse gas as possible in our whopping SUV’s. And take those flatulence trapping bags off the butts of bovines, brother, and let ‘em fly. Burn more coal. The Earth could use some heat. Check out these headlines:
Winter of 2009-2010 Could Be Worst in 25 Years
We're at 30 (degrees) Below Normal (Iowa)
Seoul Buried in Heaviest Snowfall in 70 years
Gas Supplies Running Out As Britain Shivers
Winter-Related Death Toll Rises to 22 As Britain Braces for Coldest Night Yet
Miami Shivers from Coldest Weather in Decade
All-time Record Snowfall in Burlington (Vermont)
Why is it so cold? January is a good reason. But the other possible answers quickly become mired in politics and political correctness which currently hold science and even the thermometer hostage.
It could be that it’s colder because the Earth has entered a cooling cycle, as some have predicted
and I have reported.
But if you believe that, in light of the hard
data at hand --record breaking snowfall and temperatures--the climate establishment says that you’re ignorant. These are the experts who rely on sophisticated (and faulty) climate models. They and their minions in Big Media and education want you to know that your bum is freezing because
of climate change. They instruct that if we could only stop the earth from warming by reducing carbon dioxide emissions, we’d be warmer
now, and lives would be saved. In an astonishing article about Peru’s mountain people who face extinction because of freezing temperatures, The London Guardian writes,
“In a world growing ever hotter, Huancavelica is an anomaly. These communities, living at the edge of what is possible, face extinction because of increasingly cold conditions in their own microclimate, which may have been altered by the rapid melting of the glaciers.”
By the way, Guardian, the Earth stopped warming 12 years ago. But, as we have learned with the climate change crowd, one should never let facts get in the way of a good crusade against capitalism, or in the way of a new religion. The mental gymnastics and denial used to defend the climate change doomsday theory are both breathtaking and depressing. Cue the Tooth Fairy.
Oh, and here’s a blast from the past: remember Climategate?
You know, hacked emails showing climate scientists were fudging temperature data to make it look like the earth is warming? It’s been called one of the worst scandals in the modern scientific era. But it undercuts climate change dogma, so Big Media took a nap and forgot about it.
But the temperature continues it's mean, selfish, uncaring, politically incorrect direction: down.
