To keep the global warming faith, you need to hold something akin to Groucho Marx’s principles: “These are the reasons the planet is warming . . . and if they fail to convince, well I’ve got more.”
Alarmists are digging themselves in over the sustained record cold snap in the northern hemisphere, insisting that semi-global frigidity is really part of global warming.
“It’s part of natural variability,” said Gerald Meehl, a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo. With global warming, he said, “we’ll still have record cold temperatures. We’ll just have fewer of them.”
As ambivalent youngsters are prone to declare: Yeah, whatever.
Meanwhile, Tim Blair links to the bible for hipsters – until they grow up – Rolling Stone which has published a lengthy piece sliming 16 enemies of the warmenistas.
Two points of interest from the diatribe:
No.1 – comments to the article are overwhelmingly from the sceptical side, suggesting Rolling Stone might need to update its readership profile; and
No.2 – The RS piece, published on January 6, appears to borrow heavily in concept and style from this blog piece published on December 29.
