Inconvenient snow and ice

To quote the famous song written by Frank Loesser, “Baby, it’s cold outside!”

The global warming crowd is now experiencing this first hand. At the World economic forum in Davos, Switzerland. climate activists set up a mock Arctic base camp to educate world leaders about man-made global warming. Mother Nature didn’t cooperate, however, as the “Gore Effect” kicked in and dumped about six feet of snow on their little stunt during the last six days.

Rush Limbaugh also couldn’t resist chiding the global warming crowd yesterday on his program. After mentioning the good work of his “buddy” Marc Morano of CFACT, he went on to talk about how a recently commissioned ship out of Buffalo, NY, called the USS Little Rock, will be wintering in Montreal after its journey to Florida was interrupted by cold and ice.

Citing a Canadian news source, Limbaugh reported, “A Navy spokeswoman says the USS Little Rock was commissioned in Buffalo on Dec. 16 and was expected to make its way to its home port in Mayport, Florida. Instead, it’s caught in ice since Christmas Eve in Montreal, and it will not thaw sufficiently for this ship to move until mid-March.”

These aren’t the type of stories consistent with the Green narrative of a rapidly warming planet. And lest one say, as those on the Left are quick to blurt out at this point, “hey, weather isn’t climate,” let’s remind them that it was they, not us, who have long been trying to make just such a connection over the past few decades.

In 2000 “The Independent” published a now infamous article riddled with failed predictions by the global warming crowd.

Snow would be like “wolves,” something that we don’t see anymore but would “remain culturally important.”

“British children could have only virtual experiences of snow. Via the internet… or eventually ‘feel’ virtual cold.”

“The chances are now certainly stacked against the sort of heavy snowfall in cities that inspired impressionist painters” and 19th century poets.

“Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled are all now part of a rapidly diminishing part of Britain’s culture.”

They go on and on.

Of course they were taking temporary short-term weather and calling it climate… Page one of the global warming playbook. And of course, when the weather changes, so does their narrative.

Now that we have a frigid, snowy winter, it’s not surprising Al Gore is telling us, “bitter cold’ is “exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis.”

Wow, they knew it all along. It seems no matter what the weather does, they’re right.

After all, if warm is warming, and cold is warming, what isn’t warming?

    Complete bullshit.

    Where is there a sentence in this article that addresses global average temperatures?

    Cheer about your local cold weather all you want. It might help you convince your D+ average children to adopt your denial, but the scientific community still knows 2017 will easily rank amongst the hottest five years in recorded history.

    2017 was the second warmest year since records began, and 15 of the prior 16 years were also set record for mean global temperature. it is the mean global temperature that defines global warming. of course there will still be cold days and snow. its time to stop repeating this silly argument that confuses weather with climate.
