Global warming claptrap
I sent the following letter to the editor of the Fort Collins Coloradoan newspaper in response to this article about Northern Colorado’s higher than average snowpack for June.
Your article about Northern Colorado’s current snowpack suffers from an immediate lack of credibility when reporter Bobby Magill claims that “human-caused climate change has been causing Colorado’s snowpack to progressively shrink.” Not only is the science on climate change far from settled, with many scientists doubting any significant human contribution, but even members of the cult of Al Gore frequently blame “global warming” for massive snow storms.
Perhaps that’s the beauty of “climate change” theory: its proponents can blame warming and cooling, major snow or lack of snow, cats and dogs living together all on one thing. But any theoretical phenomenon which can be simultaneously blamed or credited for both a particular outcome and its opposite can’t and shouldn’t be taken seriously. At the end of the day, it remains likely that we don’t have man-made climate change as much as we have man-made desire to tax and regulate based on the environmentalist industry’s latest scaremongering.
