"Unseasonably high temperatures in Alaska have resulted in rapid melting of snow and the risk of flooding."
A great global-warming scenario. Unfortunately (for global warming alarmists), it didn't happen.
Instead, Julia O'Malley of the Anchorage Daily News is reporting that, according to the National Weather Service, March will likely tie for the fourth coldest on record.
Say those words slowly. Fourth - coldest - on - record.
Because this doesn't fit the "story-line" of global warming, it's unlikely it will appear anytime soon in an upcoming Al Gore slide.
It's also why a lot of people today prefer the more mallable phrase "climate change". It is a very convenient truth for climate alarmists, worth billions, that any noticeable variation in weather, no matter in which direction, supports the urgent cause of "climate change".
As Danny and the Juniors might have put it:
Climate change is here to stay - it will never die
It was meant to be that way - though I don't know why
I don't care what people say - climate change is here to stay
(We don't care what people say - climate change is here to stay)
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
