Sunday Fun II: Record Snow = "Incinerating the Planet"


If you find it demoralizing that we are incinerating the planet and dooming future generations simply because too many of us like to eat cheeseburgers...

A journalism and pol. sci. major (amazing how many of them think they are climate experts) by the name of David Sirota wrote Thursday about how we are "incinerating the planet" by eating cheeseburgers. Of course, that very same day, the U.S. was setting a record late season snow cover! Cold temperature records were dropping like french fries into hot grease at a fast-food restaurant.

From the same day, here's another headline:
For the first time since written weather history began in Arkansas (1819), snow has fallen in the month of May. This snow has set records for the latest snowfall and latest measurable snowfall in the state.

As the atmosphere continues to stubbornly not warm, the cries of the pro-catastrophic global warming crowd get more and more ridiculous.

Addition 8:28pm Sunday: At about the same time Tuscaloosa set an all-time record cold temperature for the month of May (58°F), Anthony Watts chimed on Mr. Sirota's "incinerating"story here.

  1. This is most likely global warming as well you know.

    I had to laugh earlier this year when I saw the record ice pack being blamed on global warming - The more that I see this kind of thing the more I distrust the message - if your theory is good then you use it to show what *will* happen and stand behind it.

    When you theory is bad you use it to massage what *has* happened into a rationalization into why you are right.

    So far I have yet to see the future pan out to the theories - yes we have gotten a bit warmer - but it's not the 'runaway' warming that the theory predicted.
