Down is the new black, up is the new white

A New York Times article has stunned some readers by suggesting that an ongoing global cooling trend is actually indicative of how quickly the planet is succumbing to man-made global warming.
While cap and trade legislation has literally been buried by snow and put on ice for 2010, the corporate media continues to engage in mental gymnastics, announcing that we should expect more snow due to dangerous human-driven climate change.
As all time seasonal snowfall records are being broken in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington, warming alarmists would have us believe that the blizzards and intense cold are evidence of anthropogenic global warming.
“…ferocious storms are consistent with forecasts that a heating planet will produce more frequent and more intense weather events.” The Times notes, before delving into “evidence that such events will probably become more frequent as global temperatures rise”.
The article also cites already debunked evidence that anthropogenic global warming is to blame for an increase in hurricanes.
It cites scientists who state that more frequent snow storms should result from warmer air carrying more moisture.
“In other words, if the government scientists are correct, look for more snow.” the article concludes.
The lack of mean temperature increase since 1998, however, is not noted.
We were subjected to the same backwards logic a little over a year ago when record lows hit all over the U.S. and as the Northeast experienced some of the worst snow and ice storms for a generation.
In a panic inducing article, the AP’s Seth Borenstein wrote at the time, “Experts say it’s thanks to a La Nina weather variation. While skeptics are already using it as evidence of some kind of cooling trend, it actually illustrates how fast the world is warming.”
China experienced its coldest winter in 100 years in 2008, Sydney experienced its coldest August for 60 years and Britain suffered its coldest April in decades. Still, we were reliably informed that snow in South Africa was due to global warming.
Chief global warming propagandists The World Wildlife Fund even announced that global cooling is caused by “cabon pollution”.
In the real world this has little to do with leaving our TV sets on standby and everything to do with the fact that the chief climate driver throughout eons of natural climate change – the sun – has exhibited a barren spell of sunspots throughout the latter part of the last decade.
Conversely, throughout the 1990’s, during which global warming reached its peak, the sun was more active than it had been at anytime in the previous 1,000 years.
A new study supports the (call me wacky but that massive massive ball of fire in the sky might have something to do with the climate) theory. Professor Eelco Rohling of the University of Southampton’s School of Ocean and Earth Science presents evidence that the amount of solar energy reaching the Earth and the influence of orbital changes correlates with climate changes.
The study fills in blanks left by the now thoroughly disgraced IPCC, which hypothesized that man’s gases have caused most of the post-war warming, not because it is true, but simply because no other possible cause was factored in.
Amidst the figure fixing and the endless scandals that now even have hardened warming enthusiasts admitting that the IPCC has run it’s course, desperation doublespeak has kicked in.
The warming lobby is now claiming that global cooling is a part of global warming, and that we must still lower our living standards and pay carbon taxes, while all the real environmental problems are ignored or actively made worse by the same power brokers demanding that we make sacrifices in the name of fighting a non-existent threat.
