The Global Warming Blame Game Continues

Recorded on July 5, 2012

A big storm around Washington, DC, and huge wildfires in Colorado. Global warming alarmists rush to claim that these supposedly prove that mankind has ruined our climate.

Yet at other times, they tell us that cool weather proves nothing. The only consistency from the alarmists is their never-ending desire to restrict our freedoms, to tax fuel and energy, and to limit our lifestyles—and of course they want to be put in charge of our decisions.

They jump at any excuse to blame things on global warming. It has been publicly blamed for asteroid strikes, for cannibalism, for cold weather in India, for smaller harvests and for bigger harvests, for more street crimes, and of course for crabgrass.

The very fact that the sun comes up is seen as proof of global warming. Yes, we should all be good stewards of our environment, but not every good thing in life is green.
