Say, Could Hotcoldwetdry Be The Grinch That Steals Christmas?
The annual rite of climate insanity continues
Everyone hates a Scrooge.
The winter holidays are a time to gather together, celebrate, stuff ourselves with figgy pudding and otherwise forget all about the travails of the outside world. But much like a certain nasty green fellow who lives in the vicinity of Whoville, climate change doesn’t show much respect for hallowed holiday traditions.
It’s hard to deck the halls without a Christmas tree, but thanks to rising temperatures, they may become harder to find. A Union of Concerned Scientists report released in September predicted dramatic losses in “climatically suitable” areas for Rocky Mountain tree species like ponderosa pines, Engelmann spruce and Douglas fir trees. Lodgepole pines, for example, could see their range decline by 90 percent by 2060, the report said (ClimateWire, Sept. 11).
Do you know what we have a lot of here in the south? Pine trees. I see many of them right outside the back window. Pine trees, like many trees, deal with a wide range of temperatures. My parents live in the Pine Barrens region of NJ. Those pines deal with below zero temps all the way into the 90’s. Does anyone think that a few degrees higher global temperature would be noticed?
Planning a holiday toast? California varietals could someday disappear from holiday wine lists. Pests and diseases that plague the Golden State’s vineyards are only encouraged by warmer weather (ClimateWire, March 25).
“Could”. No proof of mostly/solely anthropogenic causation, just fanatical, unhinged, anti-science prognostications by Warmists.
As for the Arctic, well, Santa Claus’ homeland certainly isn’t what it used to be.
“The Arctic has been getting greener, warmer, increasingly more accessible to shipping, energy extraction and fishing,” the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stated this week (ClimateWire, Dec. 18).
Except for the massive growth of the Arctic the past few years.
But, really, rebutting any of this is virtually worthless. Warmists have a narrative and they go two out of three monkeys when presented with anything that violates their cultish beliefs (see no evil, hear no evil….yes, they think Skeptics are evil). They are as dogmatic as the most hardcore cults, ones like Heavens Gate and al Qeada. They use holidays to push their insanity every year. Not Muslim holidays, mind you, because they do not want to offend Muslims.
