When You're Cold, You're Hot says the NY Times
New York Times Urges Air Conditioner Purchases.
"If You're Cold, That Means You're Hot."
By Ron Marr
In an effort to reduce their advertising revenue even further, the New York Times today hit new heights of insanity when it insisted that global warming caused the blizzard that recently smothered the east coast. In its February 10th editorial, the Old Gray Lady demonstrated her ever-encroaching senility by proclaiming that “Cold means hot . . . damn you!”
In a long and rambling piece that was terrifyingly reminiscent of when your doddering old great uncle regales a Thanksgiving gathering with the white-knuckle tale of how he once saw a kitty, The Times issued the following statement:
Skeptics of global warming are using the record-setting snows to mock those who warn of dangerous human-driven climate change — this looks more like global cooling, they taunt. Most climate scientists respond that the ferocious storms are consistent with forecasts that a heating planet will produce more frequent and more intense weather events.
Okie dokie there Granny; I think it’s time for your pills and a long nap. This stance follows in the footsteps of other insane Times editorial, such as, “Eating Lard Will Make You Skinny,” “Oxygen Does Not Aid Breathing,” and “Obama Will Be The Bestest President In The History of Historical History.”
