April snowstorms across the country, along with one of the coldest Mays in history will destroy even the most well oiled propaganda campaigns, I guess.
In case you haven't noticed, global warming is now out. Climate change is in.
Climate change" is a much better term because much more than warming is involved, although the changes first begin with the globe's average warming. This average warming can cause changes in patterns of rainfall. It can lead to more snow piling up in places such as Antarctica and Greenland, and it can even include some parts of the Earth growing colder.This allows for an all-encompassing media onslaught. A warm December? Climate change. A cold spring? Climate change. Presto. No more embarrassment of "how's that global warming thingie coming along?" snide comments when it's snowing in April.
And now here comes Global Cooling!!
AP: Members of six tribes recently gathered near the Baker River in the White Mountains for a sacred ceremony honoring "Earth Mother." Talking Hawk, a Mohawk Indian who asked to be identified by his Indian name, pointed to the river's tea-colored water as proof that the overwhelming amount of pollution humans have produced has caused changes around the globe.
"It's August color. It's not normal," he said.
"Earth Mother is fighting back - not only from the four winds, but also from underneath," he said. "Scientists call it global warming. We call it Earth Mother getting angry."
Fear not, the evilness of golf, kept me tuned into the enviro-fruitcake movement. I could feel their hate everytime I walked on those plush New England fairways.
But it's good to be back.

Gore Burns 1,800-plus Gallons of Fuel On Trip To Canada For 1 Hour Speaking Engagement (On Energy Conseravation)
Al Gore treks to Canada on private jet. (burns 900 gallons)
Speaks for 1 hour about our need to conserve energy.
And then heads back to Nashville on private jet. (burns another 900 gallons)
Total fuel burned: 1,800 (not including his limo rides to and from airport). For a one-hour paid speech!

Here's a quick briefer: Crow and David, who are on the early-leg of their global warming proapganda tour - which kicked off in Dallas last week amidst the record-breaking cold and snow (in April), ambushed Rove at his table with the intent of harrassment. They were hoping to make a point and then blog about it heroically (e.g. We attacked Rove!). Rove first tried to brush off the insults being hurled at him by David (producer of "Convenient Lie"), but was abruptly grabbed by Crow. It then got nasty, with a loud shouting match ensuing. Rove told Crow, "Don't touch me." Crow yelled, "You work for me." Rove responded, "No I work for the American people." McGraw than attempted to insert himself into the story, as did Rove's posse (and McGraw's aforementioned rug).
Of course Crow and David spun it another way on their blog...
"How hardened and removed from reality must a person be to refuse to be touched by Sheryl Crow?"
I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.
Nearly 100 percent of the eggs incubated at intermediate temperatures developed into lizards with genes that matched their physical features. However, about half of the lizards from high-temperature incubators had a mismatched make-up, in which genetic (DNA) males "looked like" females.

Win Lunch with Global Warming Propagandist (and sometimes drunk) Harrison Ford.
After burning tons of fuel by JetBlueing to LAX, and then humping over to your carbon-inducing hotel via a gas-guzzling limo (or cab), you can then table up with Mr Ford for a carbon-neutral lunch. Sit down, relax and discuss how the world is coming to an end -- thanks to all the evil humans burning up Mother Earth.
He even points out the absurdity we linked to earlier this week regarding the indoctrination of the youth via WaPo. Here.
But here's the best grab...
In 2000, a group called Cape Wind proposed to erect 130 windmills in Nantucket Sound, off the coast of Massachusetts. I think the drawings make them look interesting, but -- horrors! -- they would be visible from the Kennedy family vacation compound in Hyannis Port. Robert Kennedy Jr., grand poo-bah of the environmental zealotry movement, is leading a campaign to ban the windmills from Nantucket Sound. The group he leads, the Waterkeeper Alliance, said it supports wind farms -- but Kennedy fights the one near his home. What a hypocrite.

A UK company has introduced a solar-powered grill. The hi-tech design is your basic bathroom mirror, bent at a 45 degree angle.
With forecasters predicting a long scorching summer for the UK, millions of us are expected to leave bigger carbon footprints by cooking over coals. But a new barbecue lets environmentally-conscious cooks enjoy grilling their food outside without feeling guilty about global warming.A couple of immediate red flags: A.) What happens to my halfway-done steak tips when the clouds come barreling in and cover the sun? B.) Would anyone dare show up with this contraption at an NFL tailgate party any time soon?
"If we had half as many people, we wouldn't have much of a climatic warming problem," argued Ric Oberlink, a spokesman for Californians for Population Stabilization.It should be noted that "population stabilization" is basically leftist code for more abortions, condom distribution (in schools) and gay marriage.
But sometimes we get handed the hard, end-goal evidence on a silver platter. This time on a silver waitress sandwich platter. Our favorite liberal blowhard, south of Kerry/north of Biden, Senator Chris Dodd, aka Senator Waitress Sandwich, provides today's point.
Headline: Dodd calls for a carbon tax on businesses (who'll pass costs on to consumers).
And the Dems wonder why jobs are being outsourced and consumers are being screwed.
"In my administration, we intend to practice what we preach," Patrick said in a statement.
