White House Proclaims Extreme Cold Snap Caused by Global Warming


It isn’t just the bubble gum rag Time Magazine. The White House itself is pushing the guffaw-worthy concept that not only does the recent record cold not discredit global warming — it is caused by it. From the official White House blog:

Here at the White House, while we’re beginning to thaw from this week’s bone-chilling deep freeze, our discussions about the science of weather extremes are heating up.

We know that no single weather episode proves or disproves climate change. Climate refers to the patterns observed in the weather over time and space — in terms of averages, variations, and probabilities. But we also know that this week’s cold spell is of a type there’s reason to believe may become more frequent in a world that’s getting warmer, on average, because of greenhouse-gas pollution.

Your SUV made it be cold out.

Apparently our rulers have figured out that cold is much more threatening than warmth, in addition to being more in tune with actual climate trends. Rather than revert to their 1970s global cooling hype, they find it more convenient to pretend that cold weather is actually caused by warm weather. They must figure that people dumb enough to be stampeded into electing Obama will believe literally anything they are told, no matter how preposterous.

War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. Cold is warmth.

The thermometer isn’t the only gauge to have plummeted. The credibility meter for both the liberal media and the government it put in power has reached absolute zero.
