Wouldn’t you know it? The Flat-Earth Society is at it again.
Snow hadn’t stopped falling on the East Coast before brain-dead politicians like Jim DeMint and Jim Inhofe started mocking Al Gore over global warming.
It’s not going to stop snowing until Al Gore cries ‘uncle,'” chortled DeMint. Inhofe and his family built an igloo on the Washington Mall and called it “Al Gore’s New Home.” Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
These idiots – to whom you can add Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity — actually believe that this year’s big snowstorms prove there is no such thing as global warming. When, in fact, any reputable scientist agrees, the truth is just the opposite.
It’s because global warming is so real, it’s because the atmosphere is so much warmer, because there is so much more moisture in the air — that hurricanes and storms dump so much more rain or snow on the ground.
No matter how mcuh it may snow, scientific evidence of global warming is overwhelming. The glaciers keep disappearing. The polar ice caps keep melting. Micronesia keeps sinking. And, plant and animal species are more and more threatened.
When Miami’s under water, maybe DeMint and Inhofe will take it seriously.
That’s my parting shot for today.
