Enough Already! Stop Blaming Bad Weather on "Climate Change"
Newsflash: it's supposed to be hot in summer. That's why it's summer. Sometimes, depending on where you live, it gets so hot you can cook a vegan meal right from your forehead. Likewise, it's supposed to be cold in winter. That's why it's winter. Sometimes, depending on where you live, it gets so cold Hillary Clinton's glare turns green with envy.
Newsflash: some parts of the world are affected by different climate patterns, like tornadoes in "Tornado Alley," hurricanes over on the East Coast during what is commonly known as "hurricane season" and temperate, pleasant weather in Southern California usually all year round. Why else do so many people live there? It certainly isn't to enjoy traffic, high taxes, and Dianne Feinstein.
Yet in the past decade or so, climate alarmists determined to sell the idea that human beings are changing the climate of the entire planet have branded weather we all dislike as proof of man-made climate change. Now if there's an extreme cold front running through the midwest, which is already prone to chilly winters, it's not just winter, it's a "polar vortex." Now, if the thermometer hits triple digits in places like Central California, Arizona, or other places that are generally brown, it's because too many of us aren't driving Priuses. Now, if Washington D.C. experiences something scary, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez jumps on Instagram to document it all as proof that if we don't support her Green New Deal, we're all going to die. Slight exaggeration. Which, at least this time, prompted a meteorologist to educate the bug-eyed wonder on the differences between weather and climate.

I'm neither a scientist, a meteorologist, climatologist, or even a mechanical engineer like Bill Nye the Not Scientist Guy. But I do have two eyes, two ears and the ability to detect patterns. Not just weather patterns, but people patterns. What I've noticed (and maybe you have too), is far too many numbskulls blaming crappy weather on the big bad boogeyman of "man-made climate change."
And hey, enough people are egotistical and hate bad weather that they fall for it. Even though hurricanes have been a natural occurrence in the Gulf long before Nancy Pelosi's first facelift. But no one likes hurricanes. So why not toss them into the "it's totes our fault" category? No one likes sub-zero temperatures, so why not lasso polar vortexes with a fake noose and blame it on Trump supporters?
People want to believe they're important and can affect change. So climate alarmists have successfully convinced hordes of idiots that their personal life choices have caused the bad weather which has existed forever. A tactic which kills two birds with one volcano boof: make people think they're far more important than they are to convince those same people to cede power to the government.
It's genius, really.
But weather and climate change just like every other thing in this infinite universe. Nothing and I mean absolutely nothing is constant. Except maybe that mobs of gullible morons can be led by a Pied Piper who tells people they're far more important than they actually are. If only you elect them to fix the problem, all will be well, all will be saved, absolution will be granted.
Don't fall for it. Put weather and climate on a spectrum. In order to have good weather, one must have bad. Overly simplistic? Fine. But tell me where I'm wrong. Neither climate nor weather is always ideal. Sometimes nasty weather patterns or climate patterns (whatever we want to call them) are how Planet Earth regulates its populations. Earth has a way of taking care of its own sustainability, it really doesn't need us to run interference. Extreme weather is as much a part of Earth as good weather. You can't just accept that which is good and blame that which isn't on something vague like "man-made climate change." Either Earth is responsible for both the good and the bad, or people are responsible for both the good and the bad.
Climate alarmists only want to blame the bad on humans, while ignoring the good entirely. Sorry, climate doesn't work that way. In fact, nothing does.
