Remember when the global warmers said "snow was a thing of the past." That headline appeared first in The Independent, a British newspaper in 2000:
Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain's culture, as warmer winters - which scientists are attributing to global climate change - produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries.You think the Warmers would have learned since then but no, in the New York Times a variation of the headline was repeated in February 2014 when half the U.S. was locked in Ice and Snow. Not only that but at Christmas last year Greenpeace ran an ad with Santa informing the kiddies that Christmas was canceled because the North Pole had melted.
the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event".
"Children just aren't going to know what snow is," he said.
Tell it to the folks in Buffalo who are experiencing record snows and across the country were record lows and high snows are breaking records going back more than a century (1,2).
Not sure where she thinks she's going. The roads are all blocked.
Some made the most of being totally snowed in:
But the Warmers never give up. Despite the fact that they predicted just the opposite (or that NONE of their scaremongering predictions have come true) they simply change their tune and continue. The Washington Post has a columnist who insists that "global warming" is the reason winters are colder. So now we're supposed to believe that prediction?
Four years ago Climate scientist Roger Pielke Sr writes:
“This failure to skillfully predict any of the extreme weather patterns we have seen in the past should be a wake-up call to policymakers and the public that the climate science community is overselling the prediction skill that is possible.”That's putting it mildly. So why do the alarmists persist? MONEY! Trillions at stake. Think about all Obama's grants to fund "green jobs" are nothing but a kickback scheme to fund Democrat campaigns.
Another truism from 2010 came from an Investor's Business Daily editorial which ran the week before the December blizzard & nailed it:
No matter what the weather, it's all due to warming. This isn't science; it's a kind of faith. Scientists go along and even stifle dissent because, frankly, hundreds of millions of dollars in research grants are at stake. But for the believers, global warming is the god that failed.Think about that while you are shoveling the snow this winter!
Why do we continue to listen to warmists when they're so wrong? Maybe it's because their real agenda has nothing to do with climate change at all. Earlier this month, attendees of a global warming summit in Cancun, Mexico, concluded, with virtually no economic or real scientific support, that by 2020 rich nations need to transfer $100 billion a year to poor nations to help them "mitigate" the adverse impacts of warming.
This is what global warming is really about — wealth redistribution by people whose beliefs are basically socialist. It has little or nothing to do with climate.
