Last night I was sitting out on the sidewalk with some friends, and it got downright chilly. Earlier in the day, I took a four-and-a-half mile run—at three o’clock in the afternoon, in July. It’s actually kind of frustrating: I would like to see at least some warmer weather before the wretched dark months return. And now we see that New York has had the coolest June since 1958.
“So much for global warming!” I’ve recently been exclaiming to my Leftist friends. But they are unfazed. I don’t understand these people: Temperatures get cooler but they insist on this global warming theory, but government getting in bed with big business is deemed “capitalism” and therefore the recent economic collapse is the failure of the free market, in their minds. Maybe if you turn me upside down and shake me a few times this will all start to make sense.
Scientists have temperature records for a laughably small portion of the world’s history, and further research shows that the Earth cycles through warm spells and cool spells. In the past there have been famines in Western Europe because the summertime never got warm enough for the crops to grow adequately. There have even been August snows. So enough with this global warming crapola. It just gives the busybodies an excuse to destroy the economy and try to make us all more dependent on the Nanny State.
