Forget Global Warming: Welcome to the New Ice Age
This is the headline in today's Canadian National Post. In a story under the byline of Lorne Gunter, the "(s)now cover over North America and much of Siberia, Mongolia and China is greater than at any time since 1966." After making points about the severity of this winter around the northern hemisphere, he goes on to state that "(i)n just the first two weeks of February, Toronto received 70 cm of snow, smashing the record of 66.6 cm for the entire month set back in the pre-SUV, pre-Kyoto, pre-carbon footprint days of 1950."
This is undoubtedly coming as distressing news to algorians of every stripe, especially to the Canada government, who've pinned many of their capitalism-destroying policies 'pon their ability to uphold their phony global warming "snow job" and keep its shaky foundations from showing.
Apparently, the world will remain cool enough for hockey at least one more year.
The news story continues:
"OK, so one winter does not a climate make. It would be premature to claim an Ice Age is looming just because we have had one of our most brutal winters in decades.
"But if environmentalists and environment reporters can run around shrieking about the manmade destruction of the natural order every time a robin shows up on Georgian Bay two weeks early, then it is at least fair game to use this winter's weather stories to wonder whether the alarmist are being a tad premature."
The discriminating analyst can determine the falsehoods of the algorians by simple observing the false hysteria in their arguments, the nature of their proposed solutions and the blind anger in their denouncing of those who dare deny their points. But, it's nice to see nature take its course.
"Oleg Sorokhtin, a fellow of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, shrugged off manmade climate change as 'a drop in the bucket.' Showing that solar activity has entered an inactive phase, Prof. Sorokhtin advised people to 'stock up on fur coats.'"Not that I'd exactly welcome another "Little Ice Age," like the one that ended around 1850,
but the point is, these variations are caused by solar activity (or inactivity) not 4x4 pickups and suv's.
Just like I've been writing for years.
They've killed Freedom! Those bastards!
