Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack did not link this winter’s frigid and snowy weather in much of the country to global warming, but said the “climate is changing” and the federal government wants to help the country’s food producers.

At a press conference on Thursday at the United States Agriculture Department’s (USDA) annual Agricultural Outlook Forum, CNSNews.com asked Vilsack if global warming or climate change were to blame for the recent cold and snowy weather. …

It's always changing. Nothing stands still.

And by the way, does anyone think the sun has anything to do with climate? Naw....it's just this big, warm bright thing.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.

3. The earth is one of the sun’s planets.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

Funny how (pathological) scientists that push this garbage never mention a static climate. Because it’s never existed. Gets in the way of their conflation of terms.

Exactly. The Hadean period was hotter than Hades which is why they call it the Hadean period.

Jet streams move around, and there is nothing we can do about it, anymore than we can impact changing climate, or make long term weather predictions.

Yo, Vilsack.
Guess what?
Climate is ALWAYS changing on earth, genius.
Did they teach you about the ice ages?
That present day Chicago was once under a mile of ice?
Go peddle your scams in busy street traffic.

What Tom Vilsack doesn't know about any subject is considerable. This particular Secretary of Agriculture would have trouble telling you the difference between a pig and a chicken unless some toady gave him a prompt. He moved to Iowa and became a politician-cum-teachers union toady in the southern tier of the state; he's not a farmer, not a grain elevator owner, not even a certified forklift operator.

He is, in short, a credentialed Democrat who will say and do whatever he is told, and if one of his bosses would tell him tomorrow morning that climate isn't happening, Tom would contradict himself fast enough for the sonic boom to shatter every window in the Beltway.

Well, see, it’s gotten too cold for Global Warming, so I heard it is on vacation and hiding out in the Pacific Ocean.

He’s right climate is changing. It changes from year to year. It changes from season to season. It changes from day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute, and even second to second. Oddly enough this has been going on for millennia. I suspect, but have no concrete proof, that this climate change phenomenon has been occurring since the beginning of the Universe and will continue right through the final day of the Universe; should that day come.

The snow and cold is blamed on ‘Global Warming’? Will the Summer heat wave be blamed on ‘Global Cooling’?
