During the run-up to Wednesday’s debate, I remember seeing kids in the background of live shots wearing shorts and thinking, “Huh. Looks pretty nice in Denver.” Friday morning, it snowed there.
Actually, it turned cold in Colorado as soon as Michelle landed – and hasn’t recovered yet.
It snowed this week in Minnesota and North Dakota, too, in some places, more than a foot deep. The New York Times notes that such a snowfall is rare. Well, then so much for global warming, right? Nope. For one thing, it’s not snowing all that early for these places. For another, as we constantly note, isolated weather extremes are different from the long-term trend. And, third, some scientists are expecting a bad winter — thanks in part to global warming.
It is all very simple as they explain it. The Arctic is the earth’s refrigerator. A warming Arctic means less cold air for the rest of the planet.
So as soon as it turns unusually cold, the same flaming imbeciles immediately blame the cold on the non-existent cold air caused by global warming.
