As the northeast is being blanketed in snow, environmental alarmists would like us all to know that global warming is to blame for all the cold weather.
Or is it climate change? The name seems to change from one week to another.
Either way, we humans are all to fault. Why? Because of a naturally occuring gas called carbon dioxide – the same stuff we exhale.
Problem is, the people who say more snow is caused by global warming, er, climate change, also say less snow is caused by global warming.
And if you don’t believe that, you’re an ignorant rube. Just ask the liberals at MSNBC (aka, the network of insane liberal hate).
Filling in for the always angry and self-important Keith Olbermann (is it me, or does that name sound suspiciously German? Just sayin’), Sam Seder gave an explanation complete with the appropriate map. Mediaite reported:
Seder’s explanation centered around a “weather report” from Countdown’s meteorologist…who also, conveniently, happened to be Sam Seder. Seder discussed the patterns that, in his mind, combined to form global warming denial: “a high pressure system…from the energy-producing states” mixed with “a strong front of ignorance sweeping up from down South” and “current of blustery hot air out of just one radio studio in Palm Beach, Florida.” It was a cute conceit and everything, but he probably could have done without the southern stereotyping.
As well as the gratuitous and snarky attack on Rush Limbaugh.
But there is another possible explanation that many in the so-called media seem to ignore.
Looking at the calendar, one finds the storm is taking place during a time of year most of us know as winter.
Those of us who live in the Pacific Northwest, for example, are quite familiar with this time of year, as it frequently produces cold weather and, yes, Sam, snow.
But facts are irrelevant to those who arrogantly believe human beings cause changes in the weather. Because it’s really not about science, it’s a belief based on a pseudo-religion.
Remember, the recent Cancun summit on climate change opened with an incantation to the ancient Mayan moon goddess Ixchel.
Delegates at that meeting turned out to be so gullible they signed a fake petition to ban dihydrogen monoxide – water.
Adherents to the religion of environmentalism frequently refer to the planet as a living creature (Gaia) worthy of worship. To them, human beings are a virus that needs to be controlled, limited, and ultimately eliminated.
If this sounds like hyperbole, consider something called the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. This is a movement dedicated to the principle that people should not have children. If everyone follows this principle, eventually the human race will disappear and the planet will be saved.
Ted Turner, a fan of population control, does not go quite that far, but does believe there should be a global one-child policy similar to that enforced in China.
Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said that rich countries (read, the United States and Britain) need to adopt World War 2 style rationing and zero economic growth for twenty years in order to stave off disaster from global warming.
But nothing environmentalists propose will do any good. Ever since the dawn of time the planet has experienced changes in climate.
Not a single socialist policy will change that, nor will all the UN delegates on planet earth make any difference.
The real goal of the environmental movement is the destruction of freedom and wealth in the Western world.
It is high time the snake oil peddlers of the climate change fraud be exposed for what they are – educated, useful idiots.
There’s a reason for all this snow, and it’s called “winter”.
