To be entireloy fair to the half-governor, people do this all the time in the other direction. Hot summer? Global warming. Freak storm? Climate change! Hell, I do it myself, all the time.

The difference is that her stupid is denying the science, and my stupid is ‘supporting’ it (with stupid), but it’s a pretty common human reaction.

Whatever happened with the goal of having “the best and the brightest” for our leaders. Now we get stupid derps and anti-intellectual cretins like Palin .

Note to Sarah: Local weather is not the same as global climate.

I am looking forward to the day when this moron’s thoughts and opinions are no longer published.

I will never forgive McCain for introducing us to this horrible woman, no education, big mouth and nothing to say.

I will never forgive McCain for introducing us to this horrible woman, no education, big mouth and nothing to say.

It set a high bar for political cynicism that has yet to be bested.

SFZ you’re not quite correct. Adding more energy into the system increases the likelihood of extreme weather events so when observed events fit that probability it is an indicator warming is having an effect.

It snowed here in Lubbock in May, on the second to be exact. This was the latest snowfall, and the latest freeze, in the city’s history. On the other hand, the average lowest annual temperature has risen from -10 in the 60s to +15 in the past decade, and the average number of days with freezing temperatures has declined from 71 per year in the 50s to 34 since 2000. It was below freezing just 27 days this past winter, the lowest temperature of the year was 19, and only 3 days had readings below 24. There was not a single day when the temperature failed to get above freezing. It has not been below zero here since 1988.

I think all of us have said this in jest but if she actually thinks snow in May in Alaska no less somehow disproves climate change, then she’s an even bigger moron than I thought she was. I swear some people like her would only be convinced climate change was real if it got up to 100 degrees average in December. They don’t understand that even smaller increases are dangerous because they just don’t understand or more accurately want to understand how science works.
