No Matter What...

For a while now, I have said that the Church of Global Warming has the most ingenious marketing campaign ever devised. They have positioned themselves in such a way that no matter what happens with our climate, they claim that it supports their beliefs. No matter what happens (unusual snow falls in Baghdad or heat waves in Canada) it can all be blamed on Global Warming.

Remember, if you will, the film “An Inconvenient Truth.” In that film, Al Gore claims that Global Warming will cause an increase in natural disasters such as floods and hurricanes. In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, the media immediately started hyping the idea that Global Warming was causing more frequent and more intense hurricanes.

So, it’s settled then. Global Warming causes more frequent and more intense hurricanes.

Wait…what’s this?

Global warming could reduce how many hurricanes hit the United States, according to a new federal study that clashes with other research. The new study is the latest in a contentious scientific debate over how manmade global warming may affect the intensity and number of hurricanes.

In it, researchers link warming waters, especially in the Indian and Pacific oceans, to increased vertical wind shear in the Atlantic Ocean near the United States. Wind shear — a change in wind speed or direction — makes it hard for hurricanes to form, strengthen and stay alive.

You really can’t make this stuff up, folks. No matter what happens with our climate, it can always be blamed on Global Warming. Record high temperatures or record low temperatures, a record high number of hurricanes or a record low number of hurricanes, a snowfall or a heat wave, it’s really all the same.

It’s “Climate Change.” And, it’s all our fault.
