“Global warming? No, actually we’re cooling, claim scientists,” one September headline read in The Telegraph. “Despite the original forecasts, major climate research centres now accept that there has been a ‘pause’ in global warming since 1997,” said the lead.
As the United States shivers in a record cold snap fed by a “polar vortex” (game time Sunday in Green Bay for the NFL playoffs was 3 degrees, with a windchill of -17!), perhaps its time to pay attention to the climatologists out there who hold that global warming is not settled science. Just over 100 years of definitive climate data can’t shed much light on the 4.5-billion-year-old Earth.
And last, there’s this: Al Gore has reportedly bought not one, not two, but three homes near beaches. So he doesn’t seem too worried about that coming sea-surge tsunami.
Again, you just can’t make this stuff up.
