Let’s just host every global warming conference on the Equator.

I’m not sure that any proponent of the theory of global warming has ever said that weather cycles will stop entirely, but who gives a fuck what science-types say about the weather? Weather isn’t even really science, it’s just looking out your window! Who can know anything at all about the weather? Well, except Storm from the X-Men. That’s different, though. Also, Al Gore had a beard.

There’s something wonderfully awful about the continued inability of the media to accurately report in any way on a branch of science that’s been hugely prominent for nearly two decades, has been explained over and over and over again, and which has thousands of scientists hanging out just waiting to talk about it to whomever will listen. If after this long, you still think “it’s snowing when someone mentions global warming” is in any way a relevant news story, you should be put on writing horoscopes. Indefinitely.
