Global warming is an evil scourge that has played havoc across the US recently. Temperatures in my home state of Florida have plunged with the latest cold snap, forcing me to turn on my home's heater to combat the insidious freezing power of global warming. As cold as it has gotten in Florida, other parts of the South were harder hit. In Alabama, thousands of students were trapped in their schools and forced to stay overnight. The biggest spectacle took place in Atlanta, Georgia, where roads shut down as thousands of drivers were stranded. It was like watching a scene of devastation out of The Walking Dead with bumper-to-bumper traffic sitting idle in the snow. Global warming then went on interfere with air travel with over 3100 flights cancelled on Tuesday alone. All in all, a grand total of 140 million people spread throughout 34 states were under a winter weather advisory or worse. Curse you, global warming!
How do I know that global warming is behind all these arctic temperatures? Because such scientific luminaries such as Bette Midler have told me so. Midler tweeted, "If you live in The South and still believe Climate Change doesn't exist, wake up. And buy a snow shovel." While I despise the progressive left, I do have to admire their linguistic dexterity. We were told that man-made global warming was going to devastate the planet and that the science was settled. Then a funny thing happened. It seems that all the scientists who agreed that the science was settled had far-left political views that advocated statism and that they financially benefited from the global warming agenda. When asked to look at the original data that they based their research on, it was wiped out (something that no scientist ever does), and then correspondence was found showing them colluding with one another over the hysteria. Finally, real science came out and showed that temperatures had been flat for fifteen years. Suddenly, as if by magic, global warming became climate change. Now it didn't matter if it got too hot or too cold, the culprit was climate change. When your lie is exposed, then the progressive left just changes the definitions of the content of the discussion.
The truth is that global warming/climate change is essentially a cult whose adherents are anti-liberty and pro-big government. They were successful for a while convincing people of their big lie, but once huge winter storms came every year, people began to open their eyes and see the truth. Now the global warming fanatics are on the defensive, so they're constantly pushing the new narrative that climate change leads to devastating cold snaps. Practically every media outlet and leftist groups repeatedly spew this lie in order to reverse the tide of public opinion. Of course, dissent can't be tolerated so moderators of sites such as the science forum on reddit or editors of opinion pages won't even allow climate change skeptics to even voice their arguments. You just can't have an open debate when you're pushing a lie, can you?
Global warming is a knee slapping belly laugh Joke. It is finished.
Wasn’t it AlGore that said the ice caps would double in size and we would never have another hurricane again?
It is just plain old weather.
Global warming as a MSM/progressive term has been gone for years.
It’s all about Climate Change now.
They made a very adept transition to allow any plus/minus 2 sigma weather event to be hyped as a crisis that needs govt intervention.
It was a bit warmer today, but parts of I-10 in Florida are still closed.
ManBearPig still has that stupid book hanging around their necks. That can’t wish that away.
Global warming always forming never ending forever spending.
Climate change and carbon credit the end will always justify the means.
The greens will not die so stay alive and solarize.
Long live the climate of change. Spend with us as we re-arrange
last years data and fix the standard cost of doing nothing.
Lola Ridge wannabe!
I was watching a show about Hurricane Sandy last night and caught a particularly ignorant line of reasoning that they were stating as fact.
They said that hurricane sandy was much worse due to the effects of climate change and that sea levels had risen a foot and a half OVER THE PAST 200 YEARS.
My first question was what started the sea levels to rise if it wasn’t global warming then? When did it stop being caused by something else and how did you decide it was the result of global warming. I also want to know why we never talk about the eastern seaboard subsidence and erosion I learned about in grade school? Have they magically stopped?
Its why our educational system is working so hard to destroy real critical thinking skills. People like you and I ask problematic questions.
I live on the central Gulf Coast.
I have been boating and fishing these waters all my life.
We have a thing called tide charts. People, way smarter than me, calculate the tides. They accurately predict the comings and goings of the tides YEARS in advance.
The water levels have not changed very much in the last several hundred years.
Do the water levels change over large amounts of time? Probably. Can mankind alter them? No!
ALGORE is an enemy of the state.
Surely THIS is satire?
Warm globally, cool locally!
How can anyone who’s watched the weather prognosticators try to get even close to what’s happening with the cold and storms this winter believe in anything like global warming??? - We’re watching the Monday weather forecast carefully because we have to drive 25 miles to the doctor for my wife then - just tonight one local Philly TV channel said we could have anything from no snow to up to 3 and a half inches on Monday, depending on the model you watch - guess we’ll not cancel the appointment quite yet - but the warmists can tell us that in fifty years the sea level will rise 6.3 inches and the temperature go up 2.7 degrees - amazing......
