The letter isn't so much dopey as hypocritical. Willis Weldin of Wilmington is miffed that some people scoff at global warming because of all the snow we've had this winter season. But the thing is ... that's precisely what global warming alarmists do all the time when it's unbearably hot! At this point, EVERYTHING is because of global warming. And it's ridiculous. Indeed, as global warming skeptic Marc Morano says,
And of all people in the world to say we can't use our weather or specific outbreaks, when every single event that happens - be it a typhoon in the Philippines or Hurricane Sandy or a heat wave in Moscow, almost every single event - they cherry pick it and claim it's part of a larger trend."
For starters, we were told snow "is a thing of the past."
Al Gore said in 2008 that the "polarized" ice caps would be gone in five years.
Olympians in Sochi, Russia, blamed the hot weather on global warming. No one told them to shut up about that.
The Financial Times ran an article blaming this year's Australian heatwaves on GW. Except they called it "climate change." Does changing the terminology mean one is allowed to blame weather on GW? Or is that only permitted for the alarmists/true believers?
You can't win. With "progressives," just as virtually everything has a racial connotation, so is global warming/climate change responsible for virtually anything weather/climate related.Posted by Hube at March 18, 2014 05:13 PM | TrackBack
