No, New York Has Not Become Daytona Beach

Thirty years ago this week, in 1985, “government scientists” confidently predicted that, due to man-made Global Warming, New York City, by the year 2015, would be “like Daytona Beach” ( ).

Yes, that was the “settled science” back then, based on “irrefutable data,” blah-blah. But today, in 2015, New York has just had another major snow storm and here, a few miles south of the city, it was 8 degrees this morning.

Good thing we didn’t act on that prediction, isn’t it?

If you think I’m beating a dead horse, think again: this horse ain’t dead. Big Government, Big Science, and the United Nations Dictators Club are still going all out for Global Warming. It’s even rumored that the biggest Global Warming guru of them all, Al Gore, is thinking about making another run for president.

Saving the Planet is still the world’s greatest excuse for growing the government, raising taxes, and gobbling up personal liberty. It justifies anything and everything; that’s why libs and progs still like it.

And so the UN tells us that it’s only cold where you happen to be, personally–the rest of the world is sweltering. “It’s only the Eastern United States that’s cold,” they say: having redefined “Eastern United States” to embrace everything east of the Rockies. Give them a little snow in California, and “Eastern” will mean everything east of the Pacific.

Why do they tell these easily-refuted lies?

To get you to obey. To make you do what they want. Because it fits their “narrative” that each succeeding year is the warmest known in human history, and that unless they are given undreamed-of powers, we’re all gonna die of heat prostration–that, or we’ll just all drown when thousands of our cities wind up underwater.

For as long as the Rulers have that mind-set, the rest of us dare not relax our vigilance.

    Instead of worrying about global warming lies that should be worrying about saving the planet from Islam!


    • leeduigon

      Agreed–but Islam doesn’t give them an excuse to tell you where to live, what to drive, what to eat, how much electricity you’re allowed to use, etc. Besides, Islam is a real threat while Global Warming is imaginary: and imaginary problems are always better for our Rulers because it allows them to deal with the problem forever without ever having to say it’s solved and doesn’t need to be dealt with anymore.

    Well, down here in Florida (I’m not too far from Daytona Beach myself) we’re having us a nice, warm 49 degrees, after a few days in the high 70s and low 80s. Well, that might sound crazy hot for March, to everyone else in the U.S., but actually it’s par for the course for Florida … including way back in the 70s, where the temperatures matched these almost exactly, including the fluctuations from cold to hot back to cold. In fact, I think it was a bit warmer last year (more hot days in February, for sure) than this year.
    My dad said that they tried to scare him when he was in school by telling him that we would be entering a new Ice Age. Now here we are, thirty something years later, and lo and behold we are now entering the Age of the Melting Polar Ice Caps (gasp!), and all because of us bad, bad humans with our global littering.
    Hang on while I go find my one inch long violin.

    I meant ‘way back in the 1970s, where the temperatures … etc’

    Shoot! There go my plans for today, I was going to drive my NASCAR stocker down Avenue of the Americas at 200 and win the Daytona 500 today, but now I can’t. 🙂

    It’s just another man-made belief system, designed to keep us busy jumping through hoops. Why do so may people get all warm & fuzzy at the prospect of surrendering their rights?

    Hillary Clinton was all in for climate Change and almost became our 45th President – whew!, that was a close one.
