I am bravely reporting live from the coldest winter in 5 years? 25 years? 100 years? Depends on where you live I guess. But no matter where you live, this has been the 14th coldest December in 115 years.
My first thought: “Boy, this will screw up the averages” . . . oh wait, the real numbers don’t matter to climate change “scientists.”
Yes, the Copenhagen conference blizzard was hilarious. Yes, seeing Air Force One land in a grand snow storm was hilarious. And, yes, watching the news people have to report on record cold is hilarious. But, of more local interest, UNC hasn’t gotten the memo. Apparently replacing the racist display of last semester are some crappy paintings of ice.
“To think of all that melting and threatening these animals is really daunting, and that really commits you to a show like this,” one of the artists is quoted as saying in the DTH. Well in fact, one of the places the artists visited was Antarctica. And apparently Antarctica is both losing and gaining ice. Some scientists actually dare to disagree with the “scientists.” They use what you call data. If UNC was open-minded or, in the least, “progressive,” it might present the other side of the issue that you can find here.
Apart from the pieces of ice you can go look at, the Global Center is committed to doing yet more programs that regard climate change. I wonder if they will frame any of the Climategate emails and put them on display. Beside the naked half Asians perhaps? I bet . . . not.
In conclusion, may I say that I am not, I repeat, not a climate change denier. I believe with all of my little heart that climate changes. With that said, I end with a telling sentence quoted from the DTH article on the exhibit: “Additionally, the artists did not want to overwhelm viewers with facts and figures but instead interest them in the wonders of the region.”
Yes, let’s not overwhelm the viewers with facts.
