Anniversary of a Global Warming Fail

by: the Common Constitutionalist

With the onslaught of snow that buried much of the east coast this past weekend, I recall a prediction of just a few years ago. It was part of an article from 2006 which was updated in 2012, entitled “20 THINGS YOUR GRANDKIDS MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE.”

The article began with: “So here we look at 20 things that our grandchildren may never see by the year 2050…” The number one item the British authors were dismayed about was: “British winters are getting warmer and wetter, due to global warming. Climate experts predict that temperatures could rise by a minimum of 2.5C by 2050. This may mean that we’ll see no snow in the future – and our grandkids won’t be able to build real snowmen or enjoy snowball fights.”

I’m sure you noticed the caveat of “temperatures could rise,” not temperatures will rise.

Now some might say I’m nitpicking and the climate science, like any science, is not exact. In science, they say, one never gives definitive statements like “will.” That’s true except that warming alarmists, I mean scientists, have repeatedly declared that the science of global warming is settled – this all “credible” experts agree. Settled science is pretty definite, is it not? So why use hedge words like “could” and “may” instead of “will” and “shall?” Hmm. read more

Rules for Climate Radicals

Are global warming alarmists running out of ways to describe the certain destruction that will surely befall us? Could be.

It seems with every passing year these religious zealots try to one up themselves by pushing the urgency envelope – from global warming to climate change to climate shift to climate destruction to climate catastrophe to climate chaos.

I read an article on May 14 that claimed in its headline that this past “April was the second warmest ever recorded”.

This obviously is supposed to scare us and for some, who still believe this crap, it probably does. But as is usually the case with these articles meant to scare the general public, toward the end, it states that in the United States it was the 46th warmest. Now, that’s not very alarming is it.

It would be like two climate scientists standing in the kitchen – one next to the oven and the other well away from it. The headline would read, “Hottest Kitchen on Record”, because the researchers used only the temperature observed by the scientist standing beside the oven. read more
