'Member when Al Gore and his ilk kept trying to tell us it would never snow again and that we're all doooooomed because of global warming, er climate change?
You should, 'cause there were saying it again just last week. But as hundreds of millions of people face immediate death if they walk outdoors for more then 10 minutes because of record cold temps, so foolish people are beginning to question those statements. And by some, I mean everyone who doesn't live in Hollywood.
Here's a nice article on all us dummies thinking global warming is giant hoax meant to part us from yet more tax money....
"Record Cold Forces Rethink on Global Warming
Headlines around the world are reporting exceptionally frigid conditions and unusually high levels of snowfall in recent weeks. They tout these events as records, but few people understand how short the record actually is -- usually less than 50 years, a mere instant in Earth’s 4.6-billion year history. The reality is that, when viewed in a wider context, there is nothing unusual about current weather patterns.
Despite this fact, the media -- directly, indirectly, or by inference -- often attribute the current weather to global warming. Yes, they now call it climate change. But that is because activists realized, around 2004, that the warming predicted by the computer models on which the scare is based was not actually happening. Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels continued to increase, but the temperature stopped increasing. So, the evidence no longer fit the theory. English biologist Thomas Huxley commented on this dilemma over a century ago:
"The great tragedy of science -- the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact."
Yet, the recent weather is a stark reminder that a colder world is a much greater threat than a warmer one. While governments plan for warming, all the indications are that the world is cooling. And, contrary to the proclamations of climate activists, every single year more people die from the cold than from the heat.
A study in British medical journal The Lancet reached the following conclusion:
Cold weather kills 20 times as many people as hot weather, according to an international study analyzing over 74 million deaths in 384 locations across 13 countries.
How did this bizarre situation develop? It was a deliberate, orchestrated deception. The results of the investigation of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) were deliberately premeditated to focus on the negative impacts of warming. In their original 1988 mandate from the UN, global warming is mentioned three times, while cooling is not mentioned even once. The UN notes that:
[C]ontinued growth in atmospheric concentrations of "greenhouse" gases could produce global warming with an eventual rise in sea levels, the effects of which could be disastrous for mankind if timely steps are not taken at all levels.
This narrow focus was reinforced when the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, a body the IPCC is required to support, defined climate change as being caused by human activity.
The current cold weather across much of the world should prompt us to re-examine climate realities -- not the false, deceptive, and biased views created and promoted by deep state bureaucrats through their respective governments."
That "Scientists" continues this prattle is well nigh unbelievable. The temperature of space - that's the area around our planet for those from the UN - is around absolute zero, some -350 degrees. This "space" represents 99 percent of the known universe.
In other words, the universe is a very very cold place and trees don't grown on ice. The notion that our planet has always been this temp/climate also ludicrous. We know there have have been ice ages, including a "mini" one just 300 years ago. And as this current weather pattern shows us, even a short ice age is far more deadly, dangerous, and destructive then and slight upward trend in higher temperatures....
