Conservative Math, Again (Probably Part 2 of a Series)

Fox (sic) News commentators took the cold weather we have experienced in the Eastern U.S. this winter as another repudiation of climate change. They ask “If the earth is warming up, why is it so damned cold?”

Well, as it turns out for the Earth as a whole, it was the fourth-warmest January on record. It was, in fact, the 347th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th-century average, the government reported yesterday.

You see while it was freezing cold in my city, Chicago, and on the eastern seaboard and even in Atlanta, GA, it was quite warm in places like California and Alaska.

I heartily recommend that Fox (sic) News commentators Google the term “average” and explore how the math is done. It will be enlightening.


  1. Truly horrible summer down here, the worst i’ve experienced.

    • The same applies, we have to look at the planet’s climate and see what the average of the “hot spots” (Brazil, California, Sochi, Alaska, …) and the “cold spots” (Atlanta, New York, Chicago, etc.) is doing and the damned thing is still going up. Idiot conservatives are still pointing back to the 1970’s and talking about how cold it was getting and not asking, why was that trend cut off and replaced by the current one?

      I would send you some of the icebergs piled up on the beach outside our building to cool you off, but they’d probably melt by the time FedEx got them to you!

      • It’s the thought that counts.

        • You got another laugh out of me. Either I am easy or you are funny (or, gasp, both!).

  2. Steven,

    You are getting your propaganda from the global warming hoaxers Michael Mann and Phil Jones.

    There is no global warming.

    Earth climate warms and cools.

    Blaming modern man for a hoax is simply a means for leftists to expand government control over society.

  3. […] are climate change deniers and creationists. Shouting ‘It’s all a hoax!’ (there’s a fine example of this argument in the comments to this blog post) repeatedly and loudly does not constitute evidence, nor does wilfully […]
