Record cold weather in Cancun of all places sure puts a damper on the credibility of socialists who desperately want to redistribute our wealth based on the hoax of anthropogenic global warming.
From This Week:
As negotiators from nearly 200 countries met in Cancun to strategize ways to keep the planet from getting hotter, the temperature in the seaside Mexican city plunged to a 100-year record low of 54° F. Climate-change skeptics are gleefully calling Cancun’s weather the latest example of the “Gore Effect” — a plunge in temperature they say occurs wherever former Vice President Al Gore, now a Nobel Prize-winning environmental activist, makes a speech about the climate. Although Gore is not scheduled to speak in Cancun, “it could be that the Gore Effect has announced his secret arrival,” jokes former NASA scientist Roy W. Spencer.
Bummer, man. It’s kinda hard to sell this bunk even on a good day, but when you have a cold snap in the middle of an anthropogenic global warming (AGW) festival of redistribution, it really makes it tough to convince thinking people.
It really seems that God has been showing that famous sense of humor his followers have long appreciated about Him. It seems every time the global warming enthusiasts get together, temperatures plunge even more. They tried to have a protest in Utah last year, but cold weather put the kibosh on that. A blizzard at the Copenhagen confab last year ruined the mood, as did a separate incident where reporters were locked outside the conference to freeze. AGW disciples in Washington D.C. got disappointed last year. Canadians tried to stir up angst over global warming and got frozen out. Mount Rushmore AGW fans were frozen out a couple of years ago. A teach-in on AGW in Buffalo was frozen out a few years ago.
It’s no wonder belief in AGW is falling faster than the temperatures in Cancun. With all the evidence to the contrary, it has to be tough even for dedicated liberals to keep on believing.
The real science–not the fudged computer models, not the hysteria, not the wild conjecture, but the real science–has long demonstrated that earth’s climate has gone up and down in extremes often much greater than today, going back thousands of years. For liberals who find intelligent, analytical thought challenging, I will point out that most of these temperature extremes occurred hundreds or thousands of years in advance of the advent of modern industry, coal power plants, SUVs and other capitalist evils.
With science, history, common sense and even the daily weather conspiring against the global warming enthusiasts, I’m almost tempted to feel a little sorry for them. Almost. I find it very hard to feel sorry for people who are lying to the American people in an attempt to rob us of our property and our liberty.
