Whether the weather

The last ice age was at its maximum peak about 20,000 years ago. Ice sheets covered much of North America, Europe, and Asia.

The ice sheets and glaciers have been melting ever since, with a few periods of cold spells and warm spells. But in general, the ice has been melting for twenty millennia like the Wicked Witch of the West in a hot tub.

When did this melting go from being a good thing, allowing us to grow food, live, and watch bikini-clad girls in summer to the modern global warming, climate change, climate chaos we-are-all-going-to-die panic? A "consensus" of scientist agrees there have actually been several periods in the long history of the Earth where there were ice ages; times where glaciers and ice sheets covered a significant portion of the land. In time those glaciers and ice sheets retreated (you know, melted).

There was cold glacial periods. There was global warming. Then global cooling.  Then warming.  Rinse and repeat. Rinse and repeat.

It seems to me this melting and warming has been going on long, long, before we started the Industrial Revolution, eons before Duke Energy and ConEd fired up their first coal burning power plants, hundreds of centuries before Monsanto screwed with the DNA of a kernel of corn, way before we started raping Mother Nature like a Nigerian school girl sex slave.

Maybe, just maybe, my refusal to drive a Prius is not to be blamed.

We can't possibly put as much crap in the air as a volcano. But somehow the warmists keep forgetting Mt. Pinatubo, Mt. St. Helens, Eyjafjallajökull, and all the other big volcanos that keep pumping shit into the air and water.

Hell, Mauna Loa in Hawaii is active and pumping shit out all the time. Wikipedia: "Mauna Loa has probably been erupting for over 700,000 years, and may have emerged above sea level about 400,000 years ago."

Warmists are fucking idiots.

Here's what kills me about these whackos.

How old do they say the earth is? Millions of years, billions of years?

How long have we been tracking temps? 100 years maybe?

I'm too lazy to look up either figure. But I know they are not far off.

So they have .000001 % of the actual data right?

So EVEN IF the temp increase they proclaim is actually true, they can know for certain that human industries have created this increase?

No wonder they voted for a Community Organizer.

Only a moron or a Racist President would push the global warming horseshit.
