I swear, the next person who says “hey look, it’s cold outside so global warming must be false” needs to be metaphorically beaten with the 2×4 of rationality. The Worldnetdaily is the latest to pass on this absolutely moronic argument:
It’s been a bad week for global warming.
Cairo saw its first snow in 100 years. Oregon, like several other states, reached its coldest temperature in 40 years. Chicago saw its coldest days ever, and – as if to add finality to the trend – Antarctica reached the coldest temperature ever recorded anywhere on earth.
Seriously, kill it. Kill it with fire. Global warming doesn’t mean that it’s going to be warmer everywhere at all times. In fact, it’s going to be colder in some places at some times than it was before. The warming is the warming of the oceans, will can have a significant impact on global weather patterns — including sometimes making our weather even colder under some circumstances. You can see a detailed explanation for all this here.
