“Global Warming” FINALLY Confirmed!

Forget what you’ve read about the Arctic ice mass increasing by 60% last year, Antarctic ice mass at at 35-year high, the fact that global average temperatures have not increased for the last 15 or so years, the extravagant cost of “Green” energy, or the possibility that we could be on the verge of a century of global cooling – instead, consider this actual fact reported by the Australian Government’s Bureau of Meteorology:

2013 confirmed as Australia’s hottest year on record

Yes siree,  those Blokes and Sheilas held “hostage to the climate change madness” of Greens and Liberals in the vast down under experienced Australia’s hottest day, week, and month, as well as the longest heat wave ever recorded in Australia since the dawn of recorded time (they didn’t really say).

However, I’m not looking forward to what Green Advocates, conspiratorial Scientists, and certain prognosticating Politicians will say once this presser gets picked up by the world’s mainstream press: I can already hear the chorus of “See? I TOLD you so!” delivered to “global warming” non-believers far and wide.

BTW: When it comes to anthropogenic global warming, I believe (a) the Earth is gradually heating up, because just like Homer Simpson it obeys the Laws of Thermodynamics, (2) I’ll bet the human contribution to global warming is tiny compared to Mother Nature, (c) if man’s contribution represents a “tipping point” then how is it we’re still here despite asteroid strikes, massive volcanoes, widespread use of freon propellants, and that scientifically-inconvenient Medieval Warming Period? and (4) it looks to me as if the “Green Movement” is merely a disguise for a modern version of the 1960′s “Military-Industrial Complex” – call it the “Environmental-Industrial Complex“.

Thanks for reading! (and, stay cool!)
