Best warming headline evah---BBC -- Global Warming is Making the World Colder
watts up with that? ^ | February 28, 2012 | Anthony Watts

Posted on 02/28/2012 7:12:13 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach

I’ve been getting a lot of pressure to cover the story by warmspinner Richard Black over at the BBC about a supposed feedback between Arctic sea ice and colder, snowier, winters in the UK and the EU. For example, WUWT “elftone” says:

Richard Black of the BBC – despite getting his head handed to him on a platter twice recently – is spinning like crazy about snowy winters. The cause is shrinking arctic ice. No, really :). I’m amazed he’s able to stand:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17143269

I’ve been resisting covering this for a little bit, because I knew sooner or later some MSM media fool would mangle this story into something unrecognizable (they always do). I was right, and the result is the most hilarious global warming headline ever:

They really have lost the plot, haven’t they?

After a few hours, probably responding to people calling up the newsroom and laughing uncontrollably, some editor changed the headline to read “Melting Arctic causes snowier winters in Europe, the US “.

The Internet though, has a memory for such things. The original link was: http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/world/global-warming-is-making-the-world-colder/story-e6frea8l-1226283672088?from=public_rss

But if you click on that you get the revised headline with revised URL.

It is still cached in some places, like this law blog: http://legalnews.findlaw.com/article/0dc48OwedZ44D?q=NASA

Some Editor suddenly realized that admitting the Globe was cooling as NOT acceptable.

The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them....To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies - all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth. George Orwell "1984"

Modern example -- Global Warming casues Cold

Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said: "one can't believe impossible things." "I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." "Through the Looking Glass" Lewis Carrol

Hark!
Those in the global warming movement of all strips are getting more and more desperate as things shape up. They really should start taking their anger out of the Al Gores and Hansen's of the world that for so long deceived them.

Glad to be back!

I saw a story this week that opening that Canadian pipeline and increasing the supply of oil in the US would drive gas prices up.

???

Supply and demand rules 101.

Not surprised global warming is making us colder.

They also say “climate change” now. Meaning, “We have no idea what is going on.”

Phil Valentine is a syndicated talk host and has made a very good documentary on all of the Warming hype presented chiefly by Al Gore and rips it to shreds. It is called “AN INCONSISTENT TRUTH”. If you get a chance to see it, I recommend you do.

I read that the mad water melon “scientists” have teamed up with the Bill Gates Foundation to demand billions from congress for a geo engineering project to deflect sunlight from earth. You heard about this?

That is news to me....doen't that say that the nasty ole Sun is causing our Global Warming problem...

Or are they saying that the photosynesis process of plants must ve stopped since they use CO2 and produce Osygen which is now to be added to the list of atmospheric pollutants...?

See this thread for my wanderings regarding CO2 as a pollutant.:
