Two Words for the Deniers

It’s minus ten here, and that inevitably leads some of the ill-read, e.g. people sitting indoors reading Forbes, to make mocking remarks about how this weather “proves” climate change, a phenomenon mockers typically call “global warming,” is a hoax and/or a liberal conspiracy. Having been out in this “proof” fluffing hay and chopping ice from stock tanks so snow-dusted horses can drink, I am even less amused than usual about the ignorance of deniers.

Here’s an article explaining why getting warmer in the north means we can freeze down south: “How Global Warming Can Make Cold Snaps Even Worse.”

For those who want the short explanation here are two words: Arctic amplification.

Off to put a cup of instant hot chocolate in the microwave.
