As Polar Vortex Looms, This Getaway Promo Doesn't Cut It

Thanks for the email, Southwest/Air Tran, but the only $69 fare teased from Milwaukee to anywhere gets me to Kansas City, MO. No offense, but that's not far enough south.

Global warming sure would be nice.

It's funny that after being debunked time after time, the "Hurr durr it's cold out, global warming not derp hurr" argument just keeps shambling back to life like a ....well, like some kind of revitalized movie monster.

The idea that the "Global" part of it also includes places like England which is being drowned and South America or Australia which are suffering through such extreme heat that they had to add colors to the temperature charts to show the highs seems to be beyond the thumbless grasp of some.

Precisely, Zombie. Just ask Australia about global warming.

But, Anon 10:14, I guess if it doesn't happen in your backyard, then it doesn't count.

Bad news for climate sciencetologists. Green peace director says it's not man made.


James Rowen said...

Not the director. Long-time departed former co-founder.

James is correct.

He was a co-founder until Patrick Moore, "said he left the group when it became more interested in politics than the environment."

Patrick Moore also, "told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups like the one he helped establish use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gases are heating up the planet."

I tend to believe Mr. Moore.

I tend to believe Mr. Moore.

Because he verifies your biases.

Greenpeace, however, is not a scientific organization and the preponderance of data indicates human causes as a significant factor.
