Are You Dumber Than Andrea Peyser?
Have you heard? Al Gore is fat.
Andrea Peyser is convinced that because it has been cold, there is no global warming.
Forget about trying to explain how climate change has nothing to do with whether or not the weather is unpleasant right now--you just cannot get past the fact that some people are stupid on purpose. If the climate all over the globe has been thrown for a loop and if things have begun to fundamentally shift in varying directions, then the data would seem to indicate the climate is changing. The permafrost in Alaska is melting and the glaciers in Europe are disappearing. This was the summer to be in Greenland. Oh, and the jet stream shifted, making the world's climate shift with it.
Why any of this is about Al Gore is beyond me. There really is no debate--it's well past time to start thinking about alternatives to turning the planet into a greenhouse where everything begins to shift and change in response to human activity.
Peyser is proof you can get a job in the media--at America's most ridiculous newspaper, The New York Post--and know nothing at all.
