More "climate change" hypocrisy

Once again, remember how global warming alarmists constantly reminded us -- rightly, mind you -- that the extreme cold and snowy weather this past winter could not be used as "proof" that global warming wasn't actually happening? In other words, "weather does not = climate"?

Of course, that message doesn't have to be utilized for very hot summer weather:

"Floods, fires, melting ice and feverish heat: From smoke-choked Moscow to water-soaked Iowa and the High Arctic, the planet seems to be having a midsummer breakdown. It's not just a portent of things to come, scientists say, but a sign of troubling climate change already under way." -- the AP.

"In Weather Chaos, a Case for Global Warming." -- NY Times.

"Think this summer is hot? Get used to it." -- USA Today.

"Climate Change Predictions Supported By Summer of Fires, Floods And Heat Waves: IPCC." -- the AP.

"It has been a scorcher of a summer. Record high temperatures all over the United States, huge chunks of glacier the size of four Manhattan islands breaking off Greenland. One-third of Pakistan is now under water. Fires burning out of control in Russia. Floods in Europe. So is this just another summer on planet Earth? Or is it the apocalypse? Or is it global warming?" -- CNN host Fareed Zakaria, Aug. 15. (Source.)

But no one really expects faux progressives to be consistent now, do they?

This is where the east coast bias of our media shines through. While it has admittedly been a scorching summer in the east (I was in Georgia, Alabama, and the panhandle of Florida in late July, so I got a good taste of it), out west, we have had an unusually cool summer. Sacramento can be absolutely scorching, with day after day of 105 and higher. This summer, we nary ever had a day over 100. I would say this has been the coolest summer in the 12 years I have lived in Sacramento. Heck, all over California, farmer's fruit had a big delay in ripening because it wasn't getting hot enough.

Suck it, news media!
