According to CBS, the mid-west is "bracing" for record global warming tonight. Be safe

and bundle up. Thanks Al.

1. It goes without saying -- whenever it gets cold outside, we brace ourselves....

... for rank stupidity.

2. According to the forecast in central Illinois we're going to get 1-3 inches of snow. We've had less

snow this winter than we've had most winters.

3. You still don't get the "global warming" thing, do you?

It does NOT mean that everyplace on the globe is universally warmer all at the same time.

The global climate is a little more complicated than your thermostat at home.

4. Why didn't they pick a name that reflected the phenomena?

 

So they couldn't get the name right, they sure seem unable to predict future consequences with any sort of regularity.

5. Have you ever considered that their predictions are correct and reality is wrong?

This could actually be the case. I know it must be difficult for you to grasp, but even if we predict that 50 out of 100 coin tosses will be heads, it doesn't ALWAYS happen that way. Would you say the prediction was wrong if the result in a real life test were 52 heads and 48 tails? What about 54-46 or 60-40?

6. Because it IS a warming trend.

I agree that "climate change' might have been more marketable...especially for morons who can't comprehend that a general warming trend will result in climatological events that cool certain parts of the planet.

Bad name, valid concept.
