We’ve had a lot of fun mocking the believers of manmade global warming over the last few days. And why not? After all it’s been raining frozen iguanas and we’ve had the longest cold snap in this neck of the woods in years. But the truth is that this cold weather does not disprove what I call “the incredibly flexible theory.” This cold spell could simply be a freak thing that doesn’t mean anything one way or the other.
Just like HURRICANE KATRINA.
You see, you can’t make sweeping statements about something as complicated as global weather patterns based on one or two observations. We are talking about 4.5 billion years of history, most of it without any instruments to measure temperatures and without humans to do the measuring.
Temperatures on earth are the result of a complex equation that includes many, many variables, the most important of which is the varying radiation emitted from THE SUN.
My prediction for the next decade is that eventually there will be enough data points to poke giant holes in the incredibly flexible theory and we’ll find many more instances of so-called scientists covering up data that is “inconvenient” their version of the “truth”. Until then, stay warm.
