Early in the Second World War George Orwell famously wrote, "As I write, highly civilized human beings are flying overhead, trying to kill me." The irony of that scene, I assume, accounts for the line's enduring fame. Well, let me try some irony on you, "As I write, freezing rain and wind-whipped snow are pelting my roof, rendering me miserable, yet highly civilized human beings are trying to kill me." They actually oppose global warming. Despite the inclement weather, they remonstrate that global warming is an environmental evil, and from universities and media outlets they endeavor to silence anyone who departs from their orthodoxy.
Scientists who remain calm are intimidated, and those extreme skeptics who doubt the global warming orthodoxy are abominated. A distinguished American think tank that sought an open debate on climate change, the American Enterprise Institute, was slandered in the media as a tool of Big Oil. A leading British climate scientist, Mike Hulme of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, has adumbrated the extent of this anti-intellectual campaign, saying "I have found myself increasingly chastised by climate change campaigners when my public statements and lectures on climate change have not satisfied their thirst for environmental drama and exaggerated rhetoric."
Meanwhile I am sitting here in our nation's capital freezing. In California the citrus crop is near ruin. The plains states look like Antarctica, and from the Midwest to the Atlantic coast snow and ice are everywhere. The logical conclusion is that rather than debate the possibility of global warming, we should be applauding it and doing everything we can to usher it in.
Most scientists agree that the planet is today about one degree Celsius warmer than it was a century ago, but so what?

Well, how can Al Gore be wrong when he has a Grammy, an Oscar (a lock), and a Nobel Peace Prize (unless the President of Iran gets nominated)? Come on Freepers, anyone who can make a movie has to be smarter than us, right? Just ask Redford, Streisand, any Baldwin brother (except Billy), or Sean Penn? /snide-off
he's so smart, he couldn't even convince people in his own state to vote for him in the 2000 election. that is how smart al gore is. LOL
Come on, you should know by now that:
If it's warm, it's Global Warming
If it's cold out, it's Global Warming
If it rains, it's Global Warming
If there's a drought, it's Global Warming
The debate is over!

If Al has a shovel, I could use his help.
That's why they're moving away from the term "global warming" and now calling it "climate change." That way, no matter what the weather does, it's time to panic and give leftists a lot of power and money.
Lol, very good. Cutting him down to size there!!
Hagar is "telling" algore he can keep his "Lttle Ice Age" weather in Greenland

You always have your 'story' behind each post!!
Which is funny, because as far as I know (I'm no scientist!!!) the climate has been "changing" throughout the Earth's history. We had a warmer-than-normal 1st half of January, all the local news twits were chirping about GW....they've suddenly stopped after winter really set in about a month ago. It's now the "3rd coldest February on Record", which is buried after the cat-in-the-tree stories.
Global Warming/Climate Change is merely the latest Socialist money and power grab.
