There is no need to study climate science for years to be an expert on global warming and get quoted in the papers. No need to waste your time doing research or conducting experiments. You just have to know what you're talking about, like Donald Trump, for example. Trump demonstrated at a recent speech at a golf club in Westchester that this winter's severe snowstorms have disproved the theory of global warming! The Nobel Committee should take back Al Gore's prize, says Trump. So how does Trump know that the whole theory of global warming is bogus? He just knows it, ok? Hey, look out the window. It's snowing, get it? So how can there be global warming if it's snowing out? Answer that one, Al Gore.
Maybe all these scientists who continue to say that global warming is happening don't have windows. Maybe they are so busy cooped up in their laboratories that they don't even realize it is cold outside this winter. Maybe they should spend less time doing experiments and measuring glaciers, and just stick their noses outside and they would realize that winter still exists. Maybe they should just listen to the Donald Trumps and Sean Hannitys and Rush Limbaughs and Glenn Becks, and the people like that who really understand climate science.
So what if some stubborn meteorologists are still trying to trot out their ridiculous theories that even though it is snowing the earth is still getting warmer. Some of them even suggest that the heavy snowstorms in the Eastern United States this year were caused by global warming! Doesn't that prove that these scientists are just completely lacking in common sense? I mean, if the earth is getting warmer, how could it be snowing? You don't exactly need a weatherman to know that it is snowing, do you?
So I guess we can all stop worrying about global warming now. What a relief. Of course if we have a heat wave this summer, maybe Fox News will say that those high temperatures are caused by increasing concentrations of CO2. No, I'm sure they will have another explanation for the heat. After all, they must be experts. Nobody would let a bunch of idiots go on TV and just make up stuff, would they?
