I hate winter.
I hate the cold. I hate snow. I hate ice. I hate sleet. I grew up in the northeastern USA, moved to the middle southeast for about fifteen-ish years, now I’m in the upper midwest again and I’ve about had it. Yes, in my younger and more foolish days I was one of those “but I want at least a little winter” types–to hell with that. I’m done. I want to at least be in a place where if it gets unseasonably cold and snowy then the entire state shuts down. You can’t do that where I am now, or back home in the northeast, but closing up shop for ice storms or even flurries was not unusual back in the south. Granted, that was because serious snow was a lot rarer.
So as we set record-breaking cold temperatures with wind chills almost defying the laws of physics, guess what the envirofascists are out crying about? Yup, you guessed it– cold weather not only does not disprove all their “warming” nonsense, but according to them it proves it. Look children, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t have “disappearing arctic ice” (which is a routine occurrence) AND bonechilling arctic blasts in the same breath. But then this is the kind of logic you get from people who apparently never heard of water pipes bursting in the winter and are sure that when ice melts it takes up more space.
But don’t take it from me. Check out my new favorite website and watch them dismantle this nonsense:
Keep in mind that cold causes far more damage and death than heat. There is no scientific proof that “climate change” (or whatever the term du jour for it is) is actually happening, if it is there is no scientific proof that it’s in any way connected to the relatively insignificant activity of human beings, and even if you clear those two hurdles you still have not established that a few degrees of warming would not be a good thing.
Stay warm my friends.
