Really?

I mean, REALLY? Does Time magazine REALLY think that we are this stupid? Take note of this wonderful headline: D.C. Snowstorm: How Global Warming Makes Blizzards Worse

You can not make this stuff up my friends. The good folks at Time magazine try to tell us what we are seeing isn't really what we are seeing.

The 2009 U.S. Climate Impacts Report found that large-scale cold-weather storm systems have gradually tracked to the north in the U.S. over the past 50 years. While the frequency of storms in the middle latitudes has decreased as the climate has warmed, the intensity of those storms has increased. That's in part because of global warming - hotter air can hold more moisture, so when a storm gathers it can unleash massive amounts of snow. Colder air, by contrast, is drier; if we were in a truly vicious cold snap, like the one that occurred over much of the East Coast during parts of January, we would be unlikely to see heavy snowfall.

I find it most unusual that the same dimwit that tries to convince us that record cold temps and record snowfall don't mean that the world is cooling; on the contrary, it's supposed to mean that the world is actually warming up..... the DIQ (Dimwit in Question) makes no mention whatsoever of last fall's Climategate scandal. A scandal that continues to grow - despite a media that is dead set on ignoring the story.

All I can say to the DIQ is that if you really believe the ongoing blizzards across the United States are a result of global warming, I have a bridge in San Francisco I'd like to sell you.
