They just won’t let it go…
But the leftists just can’t face reality…
The former news magazine known as TIME claimed today that “Global Warming Makes Blizzards Worse.”
As the blizzard-bound residents of the mid-Atlantic region get ready to dig themselves out of the third major storm of the season, they may stop to wonder two things: Why haven’t we bothered to invest in a snow blower and, also, what happened to climate change? After all, it stands to reason that if the world is getting warmer – and the past decade was the hottest on record – major snowstorms should become a thing of the past, like Palm Pilots and majority rule in the Senate. Certainly that’s what the Virginia state Republican Party thinks: the GOP aired an ad last weekend attacking two Democratic Congressmen for supporting the 2009 carbon-cap-and-trade bill, and using the recent storms to cast doubt on global warming.
Brace yourselves now – this may be a case of politicians twisting the facts. There is some evidence that climate change could in fact make such massive snowstorms more common, even as the world continues to warm. As the meteorologist Jeff Masters points out in his excellent blog at Weather Underground, the two major storms that hit Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., this winter – in December and during the first weekend of February – are already among the 10 heaviest snowfalls those cities have ever recorded. The chance of that happening in the same winter is incredibly unlikely.
Jay Leno, watch your back – enviro-nitwits are giving you some serious competition!
There’s my two cents.
