This is odd because the apples on the trees on my acreage are crisp and tasty. Maybe it’s because those not-so-good apples came from democrat-liberal land?

Two orchards in one country yet they blame "Global" warming. Nice statistical sampling approach. Do they claim "peer review" too? (I have no inclination to read that article let along give them the click). These days, "peer review" is little more than an echo chamber.

Two orchards is a very big sample, by the standards of Climate Change research.

Oh for the love of Pete.

Hey gramps, how's the apple?

Not as crisp as I remember, you whippersnapper.

Case closed, and pre-written story submitted and published.

“yet they blame “Global” warming.”

Those are what I call Gorebasams.
In fact, there is always global warming, as well as global cooling. Nothing on Earth is static, and there is nothing man can do to change it. Maybe Obozo can send some of his Chicago buds to the sun to bust some heads and suck some taxes.

I've seen 100 year old apples and they are leathery not crunchy,
and after all the squishy evaporates so will I be.

National Weather Service Reports

... Record low temperature set at Mansfield and Youngstown OH...

At 707 am, the temperature at Youngstown regional Airport fell to 46 degrees. This sets a new record low for this date. The old record low for today was 47 degrees set in 1979.

Or they’re picked before ripening to ensure shipping doesn’t smoosh them.

Grocery stores apples suck.

Local orchard apples are perfect.

Well, at least they didn’t write ao computer program that shows apples becoming less crisp and then use that as evidence.

You get the award of the day. Our local FOX news spent 10 minutes this morning talking about the study and the horror of having non-crunchy apples.

Always, ALWAYS follow the money behind whatever STUDY is cited! Right after confirming WHO did the study and what their background is, who has supported them in the past, and who is supporting them now.

You’d think there would be ethics of some sort among scientists, but my experience with them and academia is that this one collective group contains a huge number of intellectual whores.

According to Paul Driessen (author of "Eco-Imperialism") the US Big Government had funded $90 billion in GW research over the previous 20 years promoting climate crisis science.

Ever wonder why you never stop hearing about studies finding GW responsible for everything from kidney stones to cannibalism? Explains Richard Lindzen (Sloan Professor of Meteorology at MIT): "It's become standard that whatever you're studying, include global warming's effects in your proposal and you'll get your (government) funding."
