As we have said on here time and time again, the Climate Nazis argue, against all possible evidence, that every problem in the world can be blamed on "global warming." Warm weather? Global warming. Cold weather? Global warming. Hurricanes happen? Global warming. No hurricanes? Global warming. Tornados? Global warming. That's right - before "global warming" there was no bad weather! Yeah...that's the ticket!
This weekend, half of the country is shivering in the midst of one of the worst coldsnaps in April in a long time. And how do the Climate Nazis explain this? Well...it's due to global warming!
Ready for anything
Snow was still in the forecast overnight for the Salina area, though predicted accumulations were dropping during the day Friday.
"We've tweaked it down a little today, to about seven inches of snow" in the Salina area, said Robb Lawson, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Wichita. "It's trending more in favor of less snow. Right now, it's just a little too warm."
But he was still predicting Salinans would wake up this morning with some snow accumulation, with more to the west and south; Dodge City was getting "thundersnow" Friday afternoon, and areas around Montezuma already had 6 inches on the ground.
Though many districts in western Kansas canceled school on Friday in anticipation of the late-season storm, and rain forced cancellation of outdoor athletic events, several events today were expected to go on.
The annual open house at Kansas State University at Salina, set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will go on as scheduled, said Katie Mayes, coordinator of public relations for the Salina campus.
Depending on weather during the day, some outdoor events might be moved indoors or canceled, she said.
An outdoor rally and march urging action against global warming also will go on as planned.
The rally starts at Caldwell Plaza at 2 p.m., and will include a march to Capers Cafe and Bakery, 109 N. Santa Fe, for a group discussion about global warming and ways to reduce carbon emissions. The event, one of many around the country today, is being sponsored by the Land Institute, 2440 E. Water Well Road.
"The show will go on," said organizer Laura Krinock. "They say the snow is going to stop by morning, and the sidewalks will be cleaned off. If it's really bad, we'll just move it to Caper's."
Besides, Krinock said, "I'd hate to cancel a rally on global warming because of snow."
It is simply incredible that the media doesn't even bother to question these lunatics anymore.
