Go ahead and laugh Republicans, but record snowfall IS from Global Warming.

Just a quicky.

The North East is currently suffering its THIRD blizzard in two months. Giddy conservative Global Warming deniers like Jim Inhofe (R-OK) were photographed building an “igloo” in his front yard with his grandchildren, mockingly calling it “Al Gore’s new home.” Sean Hannity of Fox “News” claimed on his show Monday night that the North East snowstorms “seem to contradict Al Gore’s hysterical Global Warming theories”. And Wednesday, that towering intellect known as Sarah Palin called global warming studies ‘snake oil science.’

(ADDENDUM: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) laughingly said it would “continue to snow in DC until Al Gore cries Uncle.”)

I have but one question for all these “authorities” on climate science: WHERE DO YOU THINK ALL THAT MOISTURE CAME FROM?

Breaking News: It’s not Winter EVERYWHERE, dipshits. El Nino, that massive buildup of warm water off the Pacific coast of South America… where it is currently SUMMER… is pumping Billions of gallons of evaporated seawater into the atmosphere, where the jetstream then carries it to the North East (where it is Winter) and falls as snow. If it were Summer, it would be pouring rain, but since it is Winter, it falls as snow.

Now, the deniers equate “snow” with “cold”, thereby “contradicting” Global Warming. So I did a quick Google News search for “record low temperature” and found exactly ZERO reports of record cold associated with this blizzard. Meanwhile, Seattle just had its “warmest January in history“, and Vancouver… home of next weeks Winter Olympics, is having to truck in snow from neighboring towns in time for the event.

While Ms. Palin is on the road belittling climate science, someone might want to ask her why the Kuskokwim River ice road in South Western Alaska is cracking up in December?

As I’ve explained here previously, there is a difference between “climate” and “weather”. Florida has a warm “climate”, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get cold there in the Winter.

In the 2006 movie “Jesus Camp“, a mother that was homeschooling her children ridiculed reports that “global temperatures may rise by 7/10th of a degree…” “Doesn’t sound like very much, does it?”, she says snarkilly to her children.

Is 7/10th of a degree very much? Ask an ice cube what the difference is between 32′ degrees and 32.7′ degrees.

UPDATE: Beck thinks Climate Scientists should stab themselves to death.
