Global cooling? Winter of 2008
Today's weather included frost warnings throughout the southern United States with unusually cold temperatures troughout the U.S.
More importantly, climate data over the past year indicates we may be facing global cooling instead of global warming:
Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile -- the list goes on and on.
Whenever trends appear that contradict the global warming religion, the left argues that anecdotal evidence is of limited value. But such arguments run only one way:
Alarmists argue that such a short term temperature change is insignificant compared to trends over the last century. However, they change their tune when temperatures are higher than normal for a day. After a few mild days in January 2007, "Good Morning America" anchor Diane Sawyer questioned if global warming is the culprit. "Today" co-host Meredith Vieira went further wondering if we are "all gonna die."H/T Newsbusters
