From Back In 2000

Fourteen years ago, in March 200, when winter was becoming a thing of the past, Dr. David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, had this to say in an interview:
"within a few years winter snowfall will become a very rare and exciting event. Children just aren't going to know what snow is."
I would like to invite Dr. Viner to visit Buffalo, New York. They got 70 inches of excitement in the last three days.

Remember this, kids. When it's warm it's climate change, when it's cold it's weather.

It's going to be really interesting to see how the climate change debate ends.

Will it just sort of fizzle out and die, with less and less mention until no one mentions it anymore, and it just gets memory holed, like it never happened?

Or will the be some watershed moment when they just come out with it and admit that global warming isn't really happening, and introduce us to the next scare?

Or will they turn it into "climate stagnation" where natural changes are no longer occurring that should be, and now PANIC?

Or will they continue to pretend that things are warming up at alarming rates, despite the fact that there hasn't been any warming for almost, what, twenty years now?

It's gotta end at some point. Reality has to either prove them right or prove them wrong, and I know which way I'm leaning...
