Climate *Change*

Climate change is such a bitch.  We dumped out all this CO2 and the world is freezing slowly, just like they said it would.

Note:  If you haven’t noticed by now, I mock Globular Worming idiots in any way I can.  Also noteworthy, when I make arguments the other way like in this post, I don’t believe that, either.  I think that anything we can possibly measure in our lifetime is statistically insignificant.  Show me a 150 year trend (at a minimum) and I might actually notice you.  Show me a 300-500 year trend and I’ll actually listen and give you a bit of my time.  Anything less and you’re wasting my time – except the time it takes to mock you.

The problem with noticing short trends, by the time you actually note that they are there, the trend has usually passed you by.  Like… OH!  Recent events???
