Now imagine what we’d be hearing out of the White House and other Temples of Global Warming if this were the hottest summer in 45 years.
The stats are starting to come in for this brutal winter of 2013-2014. Now, I understand global warming enthusiasts are claiming this is being caused by . . . global warming. I have one problem with that.
I DON’T FRIGGIN’ BELIEVE IT.
With the mercury on an annual basis not having risen for 16 years, global warming doomsayers have a problem. That’s why they’ve rebranded as climate change advocates, and claim that everything from hurricanes to Miley Cyrus are the result of global warming.
Maybe mass shootings are also being caused by global warming. It’s getting hotter under the collar too, after all.
I’m sorry, but at some point, logic has to come into play here. If the temperature isn’t rising, and we’re experiencing extremely cold weather, THEN SOMETHING’S WRONG WITH THE THEORY OF GLOBAL WARMING.
Even devoted adherents of global warming theory acknowledge that the models so far have been wrong. Clearly, if they can’t predict 15 years out, they have no idea what will happen in 50 or 100 years. Or not enough of an idea to impose huge costs on our economy.
The evidence I’ve read, by skeptics and proponents of global warming, suggest there is some man-made element to the warming that occurred prior to 1997. I am not convinced there is enough evidence of a significant man-made component to justify remaking our economy – at great cost to individuals, particularly the poor and middle class.
Particularly when much of the new greenhouse gas emission problem is emanating from China, India, and other developing countries, and they plan to do nothing about it.
We, for example, will do absolutely nothing about global warming by increasing vehicle fuel efficiency standards. But we will kill – and are killing – thousands of Americans by lightening up cars and trucks. THAT IS SOMETHING WE CAN PREDICT ACCURATELY.
Anyway, the meteorologist at a TV news station serving the city of Rockford Illinois – about eighty miles northwest of Chicago – has calculated that this winter is the coldest since 1978-1979 and the eighth coldest in the last 100 years, with an average temperature of 17 degrees.
