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.
