Support Global Warming
Are 20th century warm period records for cold and snow applicable going forward into the 21st century? Not last year. Not this year. We have 30 inches in our driveway. Bob shoveled snow all day yesterday, and all day today, and it will take a couple more days of shoveling to get a car out to the county road. Where is the D-6 Cat when you need one.
It not just here. Its been snowing in London in November. Its been snowing in New Orleans. Northern sea ice reached all the way south to Iceland for the first time in living memory, and polar bears came ashore to harass the Icelanders. The Canadian seal hunt fleet got caught and stuck in an ice flow for the first time ever, and even their “ice breaker” ship sent to rescue the seal hunters got iced in. Temperatures are dropping and ice is expanding all across the earth.
Bob is now officially supporting Global Warming. We need a few more degrees. We need more warming. A recent article in the London Daily Mail reported scientific theory that CO2 greenhouse gas has been delaying the onset of a coming natural cold cycle, sometimes called a “little ice age.” We've been experiencing declining global temperatures ever since the mindless left wingnuts started whining about “Global Warming.” They are cutting back on CO2 emissions and perpetuating cold.
Burn those hydrocarbons. Build thouse greenhouse gasses.
Update: December 20, 2008
The local all time record cold for this date is in the books as -6F. Right now it's -12F. [Bob learned later that the offical overnight low was a frigid -18.]
