Is snow inconvenient truth about the end of climate change?

Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle often titles his sports column, "Deep Thoughts, Cheap Shots, and Bon Mots," which always makes me smile and which I'm stealing just for today.

The huge storm that has buried DeeCee under multiple feet of snow is proof that global warming is a hoax.

The fact that we've had a great deal of rain here on the left coast also proves that if the climate is changing it's all for the better and that the drought is over. Or maybe not.

The inclusion of subsidies in the new Obama budget for nuclear power and clean coal proves that nobody's perfect. I'm assuming—hoping anyway—that this silly part of the budget will simply go away. And overall, government support for conventional coal is to be slashed , which has to be a good thing.

And finally, when oh when will the Senate do away with the filibuster? The gridlock in the capitol would be amusing if it weren't so disastrous.

Well done! Thank you very much for professional templates and community edition

This is nice post which I was awaiting for such an artice and I have gained some useful information from this site. Thanks for sharing this information.gloves shooting

First it was Global Warming, now it's called climate change as temperatures drop. Now we are told that the freezing temperatures and record snow is proof of global warning. Hidden data, deleted e-mails and made up UN reports are we are to believe this crap? I don't think so!

That's a confusion of associations. Extreme weather (Climate Change) is a natural cyclical phenomenon mostly due to the precession of the Earth's Solar orbit. Global Warming is demonstrated by the melting of the polar ice, the gradual evaporation of the world's oceans and its upper thermal layers overheating resulting in the massive death of zooplankton (which provide the foundation of the global food chain and the primary supplier of oxygen in the atmosphere.) The threat of global warning is real and measurable. It is not some petty political rhetoric but the screaming out of our planet that we are shitting up our nest badly and inexorably edging towards the unsustainability of life on this Earth as we know it.
