Not Buying Global Warming
It’s hard to buy into the end of the world scenario known as global warming. The Mid-West and the East Coast have been hit particularly hard with severe winter storms this year. Global warming enthusiasts insist these storms are a direct result of weather patterns brought about due to human caused global warming. Those with a more realistic view on climate change and weather patterns, such as weather expert and forecaster Art Douglas, would quickly point out several flaws in the global warming theory. The “hot spots” the global warming press emphasize are Antarctica and the Arctic, claiming that ice melt in these areas is happening at an alarming rate. But as Douglas reported, ice in the Arctic is the thickest it’s been in eight years, with weather patterns in these areas beginning to stabilize. Yes this is weather, not climate, but the buzz has been about the Arctic and Antarctica melting, while current statistics show an increase in ice mass. The ice melt or mass, like everything else on the planet, fluctuates over time.Hence the retreat of major ice sheets thousands of years ago. Wonder which news affiliate covered that?
