The political left is always harping about extreme weather and global warming. It goes together, like Red Bull and Vodka, for these people. They can’t talk about global temperatures anymore since the UK Meteorological Office reported in October 2012 that they’ve stagnated for the past 16 years.
So, they’ve pivoted towards extreme weather. Mother Jones posted a story last September about a study from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that linked extreme weather to global climate change.
Yet, NOAA posted Monday that the 2013 hurricane season was its calmest in 30 years. Additionally, we’ve seen the quietest tornado season in nearly 60 years; the creation of 19,000 Manhattans-worth of sea ice; and the Arctic ice cap, which was supposed to be completely gone by this year, grew by 920,000 square miles.
In 1975, the same people warned about “global cooling” and were wrong. They might be wrong now, but it’s safe to say that the jury is still out on global climate change, or whatever you want to call it now.
