This winter has been harsh, but for the man-made climate change alarmists, here's a bit of climate history to mull over.
The weather pattern we've experienced this year is but a repeat of the winters of 1977-78, 1935-36, 1887-88, 1875-76, 1856-57, 1842-43, and of course George Washington's winter at Valley Forge in 1777-78.
The climate is always changing. We've had long warming and cooling periods throughout recorded history, as evidenced by the medieval warming period, 950 AD-1250 AD, and the Little Ice Age, 1350 AD-1850 AD.
Climatologists attribute the weather patterns to oceanic cycles and solar and volcanic activity.
Here is an "Inconvenient Truth": Al Gore is not a climatologist, but he and his Chicago Climate Exchange buddies sure have made a bundle peddling fear and alarm.
Science is never consensus; science is always tested, retested and challenged. Real science isn't political, either. The climate is always changing, it's the man-made factor and politics, that is dubious.
