Climate Change Idiots

Okay, let's get one thing straight. If you don't believe there is such a thing as global warming or climate change, your a fucking fool. Just because there is this thing called "Winter" that comes around every eight months or so, and brings with it cold weather and snowstorms, doesn't prove that global warming is a hoax.

The idea that ridiculous conservative talking heads and media pundits are using the latest blizzard on the east coast as "proof" would be hysterically laughable if it wasn't so sad. Do you know why the latest snowstorm is so bad? Because there's extra moisture in the atmosphere. Why is there extra moisture in the atmosphere? Because of global warming.

This is called science, folks.  I know they don't teach no fancy book learning in certain parts of the country while they're waving their Bibles around, but your eyes don't deceive.  The earth is warming, which causes more evaporation of the ice caps and seas, putting more moisture in the air which has to come down somewhere, right? This in turn causes harsher rainstorms and hurricanes in summer months and if it happens to be winter where you are, harsher SNOWSTORMS. In fact, this snowstorm makes the case for climate change more than it disproves it.  You get bigger storms like this, and stronger and more frequent hurricanes like Katrina.
...Gavin Schmidt, a climate modeler at NASA: "It's all in the long-term trends. Weather isn't going to go away because of climate change."
FACT: 2000-2009 was the warmest decade on record. In January, major meteorological organizations throughout the world -- including NASA -- released reports showing that the past decade, 2000-2009, was the warmest on record. The reports undermine the right-wing media's numerous claims that recent snow and cold weather show climate change does not exist or has slowed over the past 10 years.
Is global "warming" a misnomer? Not really, but it is for the wingnuts who refuse to believe that the pollution emitted since the Industrial Revolution didn't or wouldn't have any effect on the planet we live on or the atmosphere that surrounds us. And since it snows where they are, it's proof positive that climate change is a hoax.  What's Hannity going to come up with when it's 97° in mid September?  Oh, right.  He'll just ignore it until the next snowstorm.

Boy, I sure hope that the baseball season isn't going to be cancelled  now that this snowstorm proves global warming is a lie. How are those players going to play in two feet of snow?   ... Idiots.

Adding... Stephen Colbert does it again, using that crazy thing Sarah Palin doesn't understand: satire.

This is just a silly rant with no science and a worrying ignorance of the basic facts.

It doesn't offer an explanation for the numerous global warming and cooling events throughout the history of planet earth. These happened without the assistance of humans.

Global warming and cooling are natural phenomena and, rather than engage in futile attempts to stop them (like King Canute's doomed attempts to stop the waves), should we not simply adapt to them?

My, my. Aren't we feeling pompous today? The warming is all natural, you ignorant prick. History has shown the peaks and valleys of warming and cooling. The most damning evidence against the man-made warming alarmists was the hacked e-mails, which proved beyond ANY doubt that it's all a scam.

In closing, go fuck yourself. Peddle your bullshit somewhere else.
