I Think We Saw This Coming

Given the severity of this winter season, it was only a matter of time before the usual right-wing blowhards weighed in with their 'wisdom.' Led by Donald Trump, they are all reassuring us that the cold, wind, and snow many of us are contending with definitively prove climate change to be a hoax.

Here is the latest declaration from the great deluded one:

This very expensive GLOBAL WARMING bullshit has got to stop. Our planet is freezing, record low temps,and our GW scientists are stuck in ice

I find myself nostalgic for the time when the public strutting of ignorance and stupidity was something to be embarrassed about, not trumpeted.


  1. It's impossible to explain to Trump et al that the Arctic vortex that's now engulfing so much of N. America results from the new, Polar Jet Stream that is powered by the loss of Arctic sea ice. A couple of years ago it plunged Europe into a massive deep freeze. Even the canals of Venice and Rome's Trevi Fountain froze.

    This year it's our turn, except here in our Pacific paradise. Hmm, think I'll fire up the motorbike. Lovely day for a ride. Oh my, it's only going to reach 22C today in Napa. What's the world coming to?
