If You Tell a Lie Long Enough...

In the midst of record breaking cold, USAToday just can't let of the Global Warming message. It's a religion, and true faith will not be denied. Besides, who you going to believe, your frostbitten fingers or Al Gore?
"While it's been a rough winter so far for people in the north-central and northeastern U.S., both December and January were actually warmer than average across the country overall. The U.S. is having its sixth-warmest winter on record, according to data from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), which has records back to 1895.
For the first two weeks of February, while chilly weather enveloped the northeastern U.S. and record snow buried New England, practically the entire western half of the nation was seeing phenomenal, record warmth."
And so on.

I won't let them call it "climate change". I insist that they call it "Anthromorphic Global Warming". Not just plain old "Global Warming", but MANMADE - "Anthropomorphic".

THEY invented the phrase. THEY accused mankind of causing it. THEY accused the US of being *the* primary contributor (even though China and India both generate more CO2 and water vapor than the US). THEY want to use AGW as a hammer against the US economy. So, THEY're stuck with it.

And as far as "4,074 records set for warm temperatures - mostly in the west - and only 236 records for cold temperatures", I wonder whether those same 6 cities have ever set record COLD temperatures... and whether THOSE were ever reported with such apparent glee...

To be fair we've had some record warmth here this past month.

I watch the webcams in Glacier National Park (only been there once, but I love that place) and they're having a verty warm winter. The big lake, Lake MacDonald hasn't frozen over, and every afternoon I see out there it's almost 50. They get a little snow and it stays in some places, but others are grassy.

But it's all just weather.

and yet, here I am in Florida, looking at a hard freeze warning.

Living in Oregon, I have to say that they do have a point. We haven't had a 'winter' at all, just a late fall and an early spring. But we've had winters just as warm before. One year of oddly warm weather is hardly proof of anything.
