Cold Weather and Global Warming

Kottke:

In what is now an annual tradition, when the temperatures in some part of the US plunge below zero degrees on the Fahrenheit scale, some nitwit Republican climate change-denier live-tweets from the back pocket of industry something like “It’s so cold out where’s the global warming when we need it???? #OwnTheLibs”. This time around, it was our very own Shitwhistle-in-Chief who tweeted merrily about the current polar vortex bearing down on the Midwest.

Holding up cold weather as proof that global warming isn’t happening is like hitting a winning streak at the blackjack table and declaring “Who says the casino has an advantage?”
