The Truth Shall Set You Free…It might piss you off first, but it will set you free.

Global Cooling or The Conservative Hall of Ignorance

Posted by politicalmonkey2010 on February 15, 2010

I’m back .. after a few days of play, let’s see what has happened.

It just amazes me that people who are crying we are going to leave our children with a huge legacy of debt, have absolutely no problems with denying global warming.     Senator Jim DeMint had the hubris to show is ignorance by tweeting:  It’s going to keep snowing in DC until Al Gore cries “uncle”.  Does it warm your heart Senator to know that when you are gone from this planet, and your grandchildren and their children inherit the mess you deny that they will find comfort in your twitters?

And just who do you think tweeted this little dittie…

“Earth saw clmate chnge4 ions;will cont 2 c chnges.R duty2responsbly devlop resorces4humankind/not pollute&destroy;but cant alter naturl chng”    Sarah Palin

So here’s your planet earth lesson Senator  and Mrs. Palin in easy to understand language:

Kevin Trenberth, a prominent climate scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado.

“The fact that the oceans are warmer now than they were, say, 30 years ago means there’s about on average 4 percent more water vapor lurking around over the oceans than there was, say, in the 1970s,” he says.

Warmer water means more water vapor rises up into the air, and what goes up must come down.

“So one of the consequences of a warming ocean near a coastline like the East Coast and Washington, D.C., for instance, is that you can get dumped on with more snow partly as a consequence of global warming,” he says.

And Trenberth notes that you don’t need very cold temperatures to get big snow. In fact, when the mercury drops too low, it may be too cold to snow.
