Must be that global warming…
Of course it’s just weather, however.
While winter is a distant memory for most Americans, it continues unabated in Anchorage, Alaska — where a new bout of precipitation this weekend helped the city break its record for seasonal snowfall, at more than 133 inches (3.38 meters).
In fact, if there actually were some global warming (we haven’t seen any in 15 years), you might see some happier natives.
“Okay…now the records broken [it stood for 57 years – bing], could you please make the snow go away??!!”
Can’t blame whoever said that. Usually Alaska sees an average of around 60 inches or a full one and a half metres less snow over the long winter season.
And no wonder with news like that, we’re seeing the following.
Green campaigners and climate scientists are losing the public debate over global warming, one of the movement’s leading proponents has admitted.
Dr James Hansen, director of the Nasa Goddard Institute for Space Studies, who first made warnings about climate change in the 1980s, said that public scepticism about the threat of man-made climate change has increased despite the growing scientific consensus.
Consensus, eh? Well, James. Perhaps people’s growing scepticism maybe, just maybe has something to do with that consensus and
your their years of grossly exaggerated computer model BS fear-mongering that time has allowed us to check out.
Keeping it on the home front, it could be that folks became a little more cynical when the weather was used by a government that can’t balance the books as an excuse to impose a giant new tax on everyone.
