i noticed the same thing
It's nice to know that I wasn't the only one who saw a pattern in the Drudge Report today. Bejus! It's more of that "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!" bullshit.
(The post provides another good link to here, which has much in common with what I believe.)
Maybe it's because I've lived in the Deep South most of my life and I'm accustomed to hot weather. Maybe it's because I've read enough history to know that the climate is ALWAYS changing and "climate" is not the same thing as "weather." Maybe it's because I'm a natural skeptic and some of that global-warming nonsense just sets off my bullshit detector.
Maybe it's because I believe that man is a VERY adaptable creature and is able to cope with whatever "change" Mother Nature throws at him. Shit! Just look at where people live RIGHT NOW--- from the equator to the North Pole, and the climate certainly is different between those places.
I think the whole global warming thing is a crock.
Yeah, I can't get too excited about holes in the ozone and the climate warming up a fraction of a degree over the past 100 years. There was a some kooks on a now gone site that a couple of years ago told me that I had better worry about it because Florida would be just a small Island within a very few years. I told them that I had a boat and always wanted to live on an island. Now if Las Vefas becomes a sea port in my life time I'll believe that this global warming warning is something that I should have become excited about-maybe.
Yeah, about thirty years ago it was the naysayers screaming that we were going into another ice age and now it is we're gonna burn up.
Lest we forget, there's also 3 guys a couple of hundred miles out circling the Earth every 90 minutes or so. And 36 years ago (checks clock) today, a couple of guys set foot on the moon a quarter-million miles away, and came back. It's entirely politics that people aren't there now, learning how to live whether this planet of ours roasts or freezes. (I'm a bit of a crank on this.)
They're using the same stats to support glowball worming as they did to support glowball cooling and it's the same moonbats screeching about each effect.
That's what I call recycling.
