Alarmist climate rhetoric used to be "the next 5, 10 years". Suddenly it's "the end of the century" -- where it is safely beyond the vagaries of present-day observation. No more "snow is a thing of the past", "here come the floods/droughts". Now everything you read is "by the end of the century".
Anybody else notice this shift in rhetoric? It's almost like alarmists and acquiescent journalists are like those schools of fish that suddenly change direction and move as one.
Speaking of global warming, I know it's real because I've experienced it. Just reached Phoenix and the warm, dry heat of winter. I've experienced global warming for myself, and it's wonderful!
And that's the way the Ball bounced.
