What little climate change occurring is so slow that adapting is easy.

"The sky is falling!" from the folktale, "Chicken Little."

Contrary to the hysterical rant, the sky wasn't falling. But at least Chicken Little made an honest mistake. If only global warming alarmists were as sincerely mistaken. Too often it seems what's happening is something other than an honest mistake.

You know, that Landsbaum freak used to post here until he got tired of being called out for his blatant blogpimping:

Prior to that, he got busted for having two accounts.

Not exactly a paragon of journalism, he.

And we human are the single most adaptable species ever to arise on the face of the planet.

If you throw an alligator in the lake here in August, it would be dead by January because it isn't as adaptable as we are.

The snowstorm this weekend in the Northeast has been the focus of much news coverage. As the event unfolded, talking heads on TV speculated as to where the snowfall amounts would rank in Boston's history. For awhile, this storm ranked as the 6th largest on record -- I believe they have now moved it into 5th place.

In any event, they consistently showed the list of "big snow storms" to hit Boston over the past 350 years or so. Guess what? Of the top 6 storms, 3 of them have occurred in the past 10 years.

Global Warming? Is that why we're getting so much snow?? And I know people who would say, "Yes, you see, it's like this ..."

And those people are idiots.

Is, or was there ever a bigger lie, told about anything, anywhere in the history of the world? Global warming has to be one the biggest lies ever told.

And the people who buy into it have to be the most gullible suckers in history.
Even P.T. Barnum would be amazed.

LOL, I guess there really IS one born every minute. When I first heard about this, I was puzzled. I remember back around 1975, I heard some were saying there was a danger of global cooling. I was in the Air Force in Texas at the time. With summer temps around 100 degrees, I was skeptical. When the global warming thing came out, I still did not know what to think, but I started to try and find out more about it. Now, I think it is a deliberate lie, to steal money from the American tax payer.

I remember the first time I heard about CO2 being a pollutant. I had never heard of the Glowbull Warming thing at that time. It was the early-mid '90s and the top of the hour radio news report said that CA had declared CO2 a pollutant and emissions of it had to be reduced. I thought the reporter meant carbon monoxide and had misread the text. After all, CO2 was a normal constituent of the atmosphere, the bubbles in beer and soda, an essential gas that all plants needed as much as animals need O2!

It wasn't too long after that that I hear the Glowbull Warming theory and realized they actually had declared CO2 a pollutant. On its face it was stupid but they did make a good play of it with their ginned-up theories of molecular heat absorption and phonied-up temperature records. Fancy smoke and mirrors for those with no common sense.

Me neither. Besides, we have Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio to save us, so why worry? /sarc

Gee thanks Gunner, for doing your part to deprive us of another source of ideas and news!

Liberal Blogs get help from established liberal sites to get started, but conservative Blogs get crap from HumbleGunner.

Not depriving you of anything, bud.

Just letting folks know that blogs have no checking or restrictions or assets to protect.

You remain, as always, able to draw your own conclusions.

Just be aware that a blogger can write about Osama’s plot
to clog your toilet with the aid of aliens from Uranus.

What’s to stop ‘em? Any homeless syphilitic freak can write a blog.

Do you also believe every tabloid story?

What? You don’t read ‘em?

But you read blogs, and they have lower standards of veracity.

Cheers.

That's the URL of this OpEd. I don't see blog within it. Mark Landsbaum is getting the same space as Mark Steyn. Every blog is not the same.
