GLENN: Well, the snow is hammering Washington D.C. again. I believe God is just saying, "I got your global warming here, eh? You want a piece of global warming?" Meanwhile we have the apologist over at NBC News saying that this is proof do we have the audio?
PAT: Uh huh.
GLENN: This is proof that global warming is real.
VOICE: Here’s the problem. These snopocalypses that have been going through D.C. and other extreme weather events are precisely what climate scientists have been predicting, fearing and anticipating because of global warming. Why is that? The thinking that warmer air temperatures on the Earth, a higher air temperature has a greater capacity to hold moisture at any temperature. And then as winter comes in, that warm air cools full of water and you get heavier precipitation on a more regular basis. In fact, you could argue these storms are not evidence of a lack of global warming but are evidence of global warming. Thus the 26 inches of snowfall in the D.C. area and the second giant storm this year.
GLENN: This is why NBC wonders why, what was it, Monday night I saw the ratings? We beat NBC or MSNBC by 18 times. At 18 times the ratings of MSNBC. And they wonder why. They keep switching up the host now. They are talking about switching up some more hosts. It ain’t the host, man. It’s your news. Nobody is buying that the cold is caused by the heat. I mean, that’s just ridiculous. You know what I tell you, that there’s a story in The Wall Street Journal today. Climate Group Admits Mistakes. Okay. These are the mistakes, claim that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035 based on the 1999 new scientist article. Scientist quoted in the article now says there’s no scientific basis for the claim. The glaciers are melting. The scientist that wrote it said, there’s no scientific evidence that that’s… no, uh uh, no.
Next one, a claim that agricultural yields in some African countries could half by 2020 is based on a report by a Canadian environmental thinktank, not peer reviewed science. Remember how many times, "These are peer reviewed, peer reviewed, peer reviewed!" No, not that one, no. A claim that up to 40% of the Amazonian rainforest could react drastically to falling precipitation… wait a minute. To falling precipitation? Why would there I just turned from MSNBC. There’s so much heat in the sky that when winter comes, it keeps moisture in the air.
STU: Yeah, MSNBC has a different definition of peer review which is, only their friends watch. It’s a little different.
GLENN: This on the Amazonian rainforest was done by World Wildlife Federation, but they reviewed it. They wrote it and then they reviewed it. Is this good? Huh? Is this good? Yeah.
And then how about this one, a statement linking the rising temperatures to increased economic losses from the natural catastrophes contradicts the findings of the research the report cites. The IPCC says that one, okay, that one has a lot of important qualifiers in it that you should read. Oh, okay. There’s not enough knives. If this, if the IPCC had been done by Japanese scientists, there’s not enough knives on planet Earth for Harry Carey that should have occurred. I mean, these guys have so dishonored themselves, so dishonored scientists.
PAT: I did hear that, darling. It was unbelievable how he called them to slaughter.
GLENN: We should take away his First Amendment rights. There must be some sort of mechanism for someone like him.
PAT: You know what I love is that all through the Nineties were they not claiming that the lack of snow in the winter was global warming?
GLENN: RFK 15 months ago said this isn’t going to happen.
PAT: Yep. And now
GLENN: 15 months ago he said nobody
PAT: No snow in D.C.
GLENN: Nobody has a sled. I remember we used to have snowstorms. We don’t have snowstorms. It’s not happening anymore.
PAT: So that’s what discredits them so badly is first they claim the lack of snow is global warming, then the plenty of snow is global warming. You can’t have it both ways. Which is it?
GLENN: These people, it’s really, truly amazing to me that they are still going for it. You know what? If we don’t find Al Gore by 5:00, I’m starting an amber alert. I’m afraid he’s been taken by some dirty old man and he’s currently driving around in a Buick in the back seat of the trunk. I’m not sure. I’m afraid he may be molested and then buried in somebody’s backyard. Please keep your eye out for Al Gore. Let’s put an amber alert. I don’t want to panic anyone. But it is strange that he’s just disappeared in the largest snowfall in Washington D.C. history.
STU: There’s a lot of money invested into this, though. You don’t just give up.
GLENN: No, no.
STU: I mean, I think the advice would be don’t throw good money after bad money at this point because I mean, the case is really having a lot of issues at the moment. But I mean, you know, these people have invested decades into getting them to this point.
GLENN: It really is a point again I go back to my Harry Carey point. It’s not just honor, but you’d have to think, wow, I really wasted my life, haven’t I? Wow, everything that I worked on seems to be a miserable failure.
PAT: You would think they would at least wait until summer, though, to reemphasize the point rather than when it’s freezing cold, snowing everywhere. It’s cold in Los Angeles this morning. And they might wait until you that’s kind of out of your system like in July when it’s hot everywhere and it’s supposed to be. Then you could make a better case, couldn’t you? "See, I told you, hot again."
GLENN: I don’t think they are trying to make a better case. I don’t think these people care.
