Global warming blamed for unusual cold spell
http://www.thestandard.com.hk/news_detail.asp?pp_cat=11&art_id=61512&sid=17581089&con_type=1 ^

As Hong Kong shivers through its second-longest cold spell since 1885, scientists point to global warming to explain the abnormal cold weather phenomenon worldwide.

"We are seeing extremely unusual weather across the world," said polar researcher Rebecca Lee Lok-sze.

There we have it. AGW has become unfalsifiable. Weather has become climate, and climate has become weather. No matter what the weather/climate does, it`s the fault of man-made global warming and human sin. The colder it gets, the hotter it will get, and the hotter it gets, the colder it will become. Any and every weather anamoly can now be blamed on global warming.

In other words global warming is about warming when it’s warming and cooling when it’s cooling and grants when grants are being given out.

I agree. It is the perfect scientific theory because it cannot be falsified and dissenters can be burned at the academic stake. It is also a perfect mechanism for Marxism. To the left, GW is the second coming of Marxism and a cry of alarm similar to a war. GW will provide the basis to shred the constitution.

Polar researcher Rebecca Lee Lok-sze obviously did not get or did not read the memo. “Global warming” is obsolete. Newspeak is “climate change”. Fine her 10 carbon credits and make her say 20 “Hail! Algores.”

As for “polar researcher” Lok-Sze, she has a certificate in commercial design;

You are going to be hearing less and less from these people about global warming and more and more about man-caused “climate change”. The whole point is to convince enough people that we are affecting the climate, allowing them to pass laws to the point that our laws will be micromanaged.

But we will still get 500 channels to appease us.

Libs O’the world are so darned predictable. Too bad we conservatives are dumb enough to let them get away with it. What amazes me is the apparent lack of knowledge of the theory of EM wave dispersion/absorption that is extant in the warming community. This is the basis of their CO2 nonsense, and few - if any, could answer some simple question on the subject correctly. Perhaps these folks weren’t the A students in electromagnetics.

It’s so easy to be a Liberal. You don’t have to think. You don’t have to understand. All you have to do is memorize your liberal catechism (”All weather is caused by global warming”, etc.) and get very, very angry if anyone disagrees with you.

And if the effect keeps increasing at this rate, we'll be having 24 hours of daylight by December.

Come January, 2009 we are likely to have a government that embraces the global warming threat and that will be eager to enact comprehensive legislation to combat it. And we will have a president who will gladly sign off on anything passed. And this same president and congress will nominate and confirm judges who will affirm the constitutionality of anything they pass.

Come next January we are likely to become witnesses to the de facto end of the American experiment. The outward form may persist but the heart will have been torn out of it and replaced by - what? People will vote for change and they will get their wish. May God help us.

You know, these people are slippery - They bring up a topic and before you can refute it they introduce a new one.

I guess now that Ozone hole is back to the right size we can forget about all this global warming poop. Right?

When someone thinks man can have any substantial effect on the climate, you need to show this photo of the earth and tell them to use some STINKIN' common sense!!

The earth is ONLY about 75% water and the other 25% MIGHT be about 1% populated.

But, YEAH... We can make an IMPACT! Change those lightbulbs people!!

anyone notice with a world wide record of total failure, socialism and communism seems to have lost it’s allure or appeal to many young secularists. Despite this, the left’s crazy compulsion for a kind of cosmic justice remains largely unfilled. It makes sense that it was only a matter of time before a new “religion” for the left stepped to take it’s place..

No matter what the weather/climate does, it`s the fault of man-made global warming and human sin. The colder it gets, the hotter it will get, and the hotter it gets, the colder it will become. Any and every weather anamoly can now be blamed on global warming.

Actually, I noticed this at least a year ago, maybe longer. They stopped using the term "global warming" and now, almost exclusively, use "climate change". That way, whatever way the "climate changes", it's our fault.

I also think that it was embarassing to have "global warming" be the punchline for a joke every time you were up to you rear end in snow.

We have been in an Ice Age all along. This is an Ice Age. The presence of ice at both polar regions is the main indicator. Most of the time we are not in an Ice Age and there is no ice. But, now there is ice, so . . . Ice Age.

You may disparage the qualifications of the "polar researcher" and her cosmetic design license, but you fail to nothe her findings have been duly verified:

Greenpeace echoed the view, saying mainland scientists had also concluded that the extreme cold weather in China was triggered by climate change. "This does not only cause an increase in global warming but also causes extreme weather patterns," said campaigner Edward Chan.
