Earth to Scientific Illiterates: Winter Does NOT Mean No Global Warming!

Good grief, it's like talking to a freaking wall!

...Global warming is actually expected to increase “heavy precipitation in winter storms,” and for the northern hemisphere, there is evidence that these storms are already more frequent and intense, according to the draft U.S. National Climate Assessment....

  When it’s winter on Earth, it’s also summer on Earth … somewhere else. Thus, allow us to counter anecdotal evidence about cold weather with more anecdotal evidence: It’s blazing hot in Australia, with temperatures, in some regions, set to possibly soar above 120 degrees Fahrenheit in the coming days....

Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people.
They can't tell you what temp water freezes at or how to multiply any number over 2, don't know the name of the last 4 presidents of the U.S. but they can name the cast and winners and losers of any Survivor Show, tell you the complete history of any Soap Opera, and sing all the songs of any X Factor or The Voice or Sing-Off program.

And if they had the actual, even minimal, comprehensive intellectual where-with-all of any lower life-form, they would question why we're number 19 in world I.Q. Of course that presupposes they understand what I.Q. stands for...or care!

FT, when one is totally honest with him or herself, is it any wonder why multinationals look for labor elsewhere?

It's also why the real perpetrators of 9/11 got away with it. Just the lack of basic knowledge about Newton's 1st & 3rd Laws of Motion would tell any observer that those towers didn't fall on their own. Watching special effects on TV and at the movies, has conditioned several generations.

As far as the heat, it's not just the traditional "down under" that's sweating through a southern hemisphere summer of record heat. The Americas is also breaking records.

I have a hunch that probably 40% of Americans -- as in citizens of the United States -- don't even know it's summertime south of the equator. (Of course, that's presupposing that they understand what the equator is.)

As Anna has said on more than one occasion, we're doomed.
