Spring global warming prayer: No más, Lord, no más

March 20, 2013

Nobody expects the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) crowd to stop proselytizing—ever.  Global warmism is a cult and like all cults there’s big money in it for insiders.  But the Northern Hemisphere certainly is suffering for their stubbornness.  Today is the first day of Spring and the weather is unnaturally, bitterly, nastily cold.

I don’t blame God for sending messages to these yahoos and you can’t fault His consistency: every time they try to have a global warming conference or publish a major new paper, He sends a blizzard to freeze their butts closed around their necks.

A month ago they held a climate rally in Washington, D.C., to protest the possibility that President Obama might approve the Keystone pipeline—they marched from the Washington Monument to the White House in a raging blizzard.  It’s not easy speechifying about climate warming while you’re shivering and wiping snot off your chin.  Give them credit for persevering.

Last week they published a new study pretending to show alarming warming over the last 11,000 years.  I say “pretending” because they had to twist and manipulate data like Chubby Checker dancing around cockroaches to make their case.  They really needed a new study because science and the weather have been leaning decidedly against the strange notion that cow farts and SUVs are destroying the planet, but dishonesty for the purpose of promulgating basically anti-human positions seems to leave God unamused.  Maybe even peeved.  Look out your window.  Does it look like Spring?

This is what I see out the back door:
The picture doesn’t show the falling snow, but trust me, it’s snowing.  It’s been snowing for 36 straight hours as I write this and according to my car the temperature at 2:00 PM yesterday (the last time I ventured outside) was 22 degrees... which is 21 degrees below the long-term average for March 19th in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

It’s unseasonably cold and snowing from the west coast to the east coast and the same thing is happening in Europe.  Here’s what it looks like in Germany (those are cars—buried cars):
And this is France (notice that he’s throwing the snow on his neighbor’s car—very French, oui?):
I know weather isn’t the same thing as climate in the short run but, well, it is in the long run, doggone it.  If it’s still snowing like this on Memorial Day, it’s time to move to Ecuador and wait for the end of the world in comfort.  Meanwhile, let’s hope God is done expressing His anger with the warmists by sending all this cold weather and snow.  It doesn’t seem fair that we all have to suffer for one Mann’s sins.

Please, God, let us have sunlight in time for the tulips.

March 22, 2013 - Samantha- you are absolutely correct on the ability to sway young minds. My husband and I talk about politics and current events. My oldest will be 35 this year, and then comes the 19 and 16 year old. With all the advances in technology, they read very little unless required to do so. I'm not sure exactly where they get their facts from to base their opinions. Maybe from their peers? I know mine don't watch or listen to the news nor do they read a newspaper. Recently my daughter was home on spring break from college and looked across the dinner table and asked what sequestration was? She didn't have a clue. Many of their teachers in both high school and college are more liberal in their beliefs and it is reflected in their teaching points in classes. And as I stated in earlier comment, that even if they did read or listen to the various news sources, many are commentary, opinion or editorials and not just the facts. I wish there had been a little global warming last night. I had to attend my son's soccer game. It was 31 degrees with 16 mph winds. To keep warm I actually wore ski pants and a ski jacket. – Pam T., Virginia
J.P. replies: I watch my grandchildren and worry about reading. They have iPads before they can walk and talk. Reading comprehension doesn't come from talking about reading comprehension – it comes from instilling a love of reading. Reading, like writing, is an art. Therefore skill requires practice. I remember reading in bed until I was so tired I found myself reading sentences twice and falling asleep with the book on my chest. Particularly good books were saved on a book shelf like beloved family members. If I was tired in school it wasn't from playing Angry Birds until midnight, it was from getting into my older brother's Twilight Zone books and scaring myself half to death. Who is the audience for my website? People over forty? People over fifty? Who is going to tell the video generation what the hell is going on in their world? Honey Boo Boo?

March 21, 2013 - My grandfather is in his nineties and remembers when a big issue of the times was the impending "Ice-Age." That was in the 1970s, and the cooling trend was said to have begun in the 1940s. The outlook for planet earth did not look favorable then either. Now it seems that the scientists or organizations who gathered that data have gone back and completely erased any cooling trends which were reported at that time. You can google "Ice age of the 70s" and find some interesting articles. Funny isn't it? Now they have a completely new generation to dupe into believing their erroneous theory of global warming, and guess what? People like Al Gore have made billions off my generation's naivety. To my generation's credit it's getting very difficult to find any reliable source of scientific information or media resource. – Samantha R., Michigan

March 20, 2013 - I lived in Daytona Beach for 10 years. It was hot there and we had the humidity. That's why people move to places like Florida and Nevada, because they are sick of the cold and snow, then they move to some place warm and they complain about the heat. And a bit if trivia, the largest producers of methane gas aren't cows, but rather termites. – Pam T., Virginia

March 20, 2013 - Love it! We'll be skiing on spring break in Michigan... in April! That hasn't happened in many years. Crystal Mountain in MI has had a foot of snow this week! – Todd L., Michigan

March 20, 2013 - D.R. In Las Vegas: God save the world from idiots be they conservative or liberal. You live in Death Valley and Mohave Desert area where it is supposed to be hot. It is the desert and below sea level not the high desert as Northern Nevada where it gets very cold. It is the first day of spring and it is snowing here. The hottest it has ever been on record in that area was 136 degrees and that was in 1913 in the middle of summer way before global warming was an issue. I however agree that Vegas is hot and you might want to relocate as it most certainly has fried your brain. – LAS, Reno

March 20, 2013 - "Doesn't seem fair that we all have to suffer for one Mann's sins?" Okay gotta hand it to you on that one. Gave me a good chuckle. – IHTM follower, California

March 20, 2013 - Love it! B-r-r-r! – Gdebruin, Charlotte, North Carolina

March 20, 2013 - Dear God protect me from stupid conservatives. You should come to Vegas in July if you don't believe in global warning. We'll tie you to a fire hydrant in the hot sun and watch you melt. – D.R., Las Vegas

March 20, 2013 - Hahahaha! The rally here in DC was big news to protest the Keystone pipeline. They estimated there was approximately 35,000 in attendance. Somewhere I recall one of the stations going down to talk to the protesters. They were all young. Who else can go to a protest during the week but youngees? All those that graduated from college but can't find employment because they majored in basket weaving or volley ball or some type of major that guarantees they will have a tough time finding a job that doesn't include the phrases "do you want fries with that?" or "can I help you?" But as I noted on Facebook the day after the rally, how exactly did those kids from whatever Lala land they came from exactly get to DC? You think they walked, or rode their bikes? You wanna know why a majority of these idiots believe what they believe? Because they watch MSNBC. And by god, if they tell you on MSNBC that something is so, then dang it must have come down from the mount on a stone tablet. Well, except a recent independent study of the news, reflects that MSNBC was one of the most biased of all the news stations. 85% of stories are opinion, commentary, editorials. 15% of MSNBC's is actual factual news. I always like to get my facts to form my own opinion, not to base my opinion on somebody else's opinion. Remember that old game where you sit in a circle and the first person whispers something in one person's ear, who whispers it the next, till it gets to last person. It never sounds anything like what the first person actually said. Well now you know why so many people believe that there is global warming. – Pam T., Virginia
