Despite spending years claiming “climate change” would make the world hotter, not colder, climate activists are now blaming “global warming” for the arctic front pounding the U.S.
As 44 states brace for snow in the coming week, multiple “climate change” articles have been published recently which attempt to attribute the record cold – or any change in climate for that matter – to “global warming.”
An op/ed published last night, for example, suggested the freezing temperatures throughout the U.S. are an “indirect result of the world getting warmer.”
“Global warming could be making parts of the world colder,” the author claimed, even though the phrase “global warming” refers to the entire world getting warmer, not just specific parts of it.
The author even attributed record-level ice in Antarctica to “global warming.”
“Warmer temperatures are not only causing more snowfall in Antarctica, scientists believe, but could also be producing more sea ice,” he stated.
The op/ed did not resonate well with readers.
“These so called experts haven’t a clue what is going on, but politicians know exactly what is happening – the greatest opportunity to control the masses ever presented,” one reader, Steve Nosympathy, commented. “Never before has such an opportunity presented where the government can steal huge amounts from the public by instilling fear.”
A similar article published today by The Energy Collective blamed “global warming” for current “extreme weather.”
“Global warming is worsening,” the article harked. “It seems that new reports appear with increasing frequency emphasizing the worsening of global warming due to increased accumulation of man-made greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere.”
“They show that extreme weather or climate events already appear to be more severe and/or frequent than in the past, and will continue to worsen.”
Of course, none of this corresponds to what the largest proponent of global warming, former Vice President Al Gore, has said in the past.
“…Science is warning us that if we do not quickly reduce the global warming pollution that is trapping so much of the heat our planet normally radiates back out of the atmosphere, we are in danger of creating a permanent ‘carbon summer,'” Gore proclaimed during his Nobel Lecture in 2007.
He also famously predicted the North Pole would be ice-free by 2013, but instead ice sheets expanded to record levels that year.
“Satellite photos of the Arctic taken by NASA in August 2012 and August 2013 show a 60 percent increase in the polar ice sheet, more than half the size of Europe, despite ‘realistic’ predictions by climate scientists six years ago that the North Pole would be completely melted by now,” reported CNS News.
It’s hilarious that climate activists claim the “science is settled” and that “global warming is real” yet over and over again their predictions have been proven patently false.
