Whenever there’s unseasonable cold or snowstorms or cold snaps, the Meanbearpig Cult is quick to dismiss it. “Weather isn’t climate,” they sneer. Faulty computer models predicting future behavior that doesn’t happen and crappy Roland Emmerich movies, that’s climate, they say (more or less).
As we East Coasters know, it’s been extremely hot here this summer, with records broken. But, hey, you could be living in Russia, where ABC News recently reported that a “heat wave, which has lasted for weeks, has Russia suffering its worst drought in 130 years. In some parts of the country, temperatures have reached 105 degrees.” Moscow’s high the other day was 93 degrees.
So, hot weather proves Global Warming, but cold weather means nothing. Got it.
