The warmers are warming up the rhetoric once again. According to them, the world is melting:
It’s been so warm in the United States this year, especially in March, that national records weren’t just broken, they were deep-fried. Temperatures in the lower 48 states were 8.6 degrees above normal for March and 6 degrees higher than average for the first three months of the year, according to calculations by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That far exceeds the old records. The magnitude of how unusual the year has been in the U.S. has alarmed some meteorologists who have warned about global warming. One climate scientist said it’s the weather equivalent of a baseball player on steroids, with old records obliterated.
“Everybody has this uneasy feeling. This is weird. This is not good,” said Jerry Meehl, a climate scientist who specializes in extreme weather at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo. “It’s a guilty pleasure. You’re out enjoying this nice March weather, but you know it’s not a good thing.”
When references are made to specific weather days in... oh, shall we say the middle of winter while the biggest blizzards and coldest temps are chilling Mr. Al Warmer Gore’s global warming conference... global warming truthers are soundly hounded that such observations are not valid. Global warming, which in the throes of record lows becomes climate change, cannot be defined by day to day local weather patterns.
Unless, of course, the local weather pattern happens to be hot. As in this past March. Then it is once again alarming. Well, almost...
Meteorologists say an unusual confluence of several weather patterns, including La Nina, was the direct cause of the warm start to 2012. While individual events can’t be blamed on global warming, Couch said this is like the extremes that are supposed to get more frequent because of manmade climate change from the burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil.
It’s important to note that this unusual winter heat is mostly a North America phenomenon. Much of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere has been cold, said NOAA meteorologist Martin Hoerling.
Well, “individual events can’t be blamed on global warming,” but we’re going to do it anyway because it creates an image that sticks in the minds of the uninformed. That’s the warmer’s way. They cannot help themselves. It’s like a DNA thing with them. Every cold wave, heat wave, drought, flooding, hurricane activity, no hurricane activity... it’s all manmade global warming requiring a Big Government to legislate away the immoral use of evil fossil fuels.
News flash, warmers! Your liberal predecessors “established” that you cannot legislate morality. But, then, what is the criteria to determine if a progressive/liberal liberal/progressive is not telling the truth? Whenever his/her lips are moving.
So, because of a record-breaking warm March on a few parts of the globe, we are back on track for massive global warming... rhetoric. And just think, somewhere in the southern hemisphere, a blizzard is brewing. They’ll have to wait until September or so for their return to global warming.
