Global warming advocates are probably reeling right now. I’ve lived in DFW my whole life and these last two winters have seen more snow than all of the previous winters I’ve seen combined, especially with that thirteen-incher back in February 2010. It stuck for a week! Remember
got a record double-blasting, too! This year, the storm is hitting everyone! I was never convinced about the idea of global warming, but now I have a radical counter-question. Is this a global cooling? Washington D.C.
Even after asking that question, my answer is probably ‘no.’ I do believe, however, that the Earth just has some natural cycles and we may just be in the middle of a string of colder winters. For all we know, we might have just been lucky enough to have all the right weather ingredients to have crippling ice and snow here. Even further in the back of my mind, I can’t help but return to questioning global warming. I mean, if it’s snowing in
, what’s going on at the North Pole? Texas
Well, Santa’s probably freezing his butt off! I’m no climatologist (in this life), but behind all of the cold air that brought us snow, there’s got to be even colder air, right? It’s pretty basic knowledge that the further north you get, the colder it is. Sometimes, the arctic puffs its cheeks and blows that mess down to
. I see the temperature map of the whole country, and I see thirty-something degrees here, twenty-somethings in Texas Kansas and Nebraska, and single digits in . What’s going on north of that? They’re probably freezing mercury up there! (That’s a sweltering -37.89۫F, by the way). I have a hard time believing there’s a whole lot of glacial meltdown going on, (but remember, I’m no climatologist.) Minnesota
I’m not planning on starting an anti-global-warming rally or anything, just raising questions. When was the last time you heard about the ozone problem? I thought the hurricanes were supposed to get worse and worse after 2005. The 2006 and 2009 hurricane seasons were below average and 2007 and 2008 were average.
Global warming, shmobal warming. I'm freezing my butt off in DFW with the lowest temperature we've had in like a hundred years or something.
