Global warming? Are they kidding us? As world leaders were gathered in Copenhagen to discuss the devastating "threat" of global warming, many of their home countries were experiencing their coldest Decembers in ages. In fact, Barack Obama actually had to leave the Copenhagen summit early due to a massive snow storm that hit Washington D.C. The snow storm deposited between 15 and 30 inches of snow throughout the mid-Atlantic region on December 19th. It was the biggest snow storm ever recorded in December in Washington D.C., and there were over 4000 traffic accidents in the state of Virginia alone due to the poor conditions. But it is not just the mid-Atlantic that has been hit hard this December. In fact, approximately 50 percent of the United States is now covered in snow.
Not that Europe has it any better. The death toll from winter storms across Europe has risen to at least 80, as arctic temperatures and heavy snow continue to plague the continent. In Poland, it is estimated that 42 people froze to death during a recent three day period when temperatures plunged to under minus 20 degrees Celsius.
So is this global warming?
We could actually use some global warming about now.
The truth is that the earth is actually in a cooling period right now.
In fact, new measurements from a NASA satellite show a dramatic cooling in the upper atmosphere that directly correlates with the declining phase of the current solar cycle.
It is the sun that drives global warming and cooling.
But you will never convince the environmental extremists of that.
However, if you want to know what the evidence really says about global warming, please read the recent article that we did entitled "How To Save The Environment? Get Al Gore The Heck Away From It".
The reality is that humanity is not causing global warming.
In fact, the world will probably get quite a bit more snow this winter during this cooling period.
So, enjoy the snow as the environmentalists try to figure out a way to blame it all on "global warming".
