When the weather is cold, we think it’s cool to make fun of global warmism. Invariably when we do so, global warmists get hot under the collar.
You fool! they thunder. Climate isn’t the same thing as weather! Of course we understand that. Cool down, it’s a joke.
It’s a joke designed to make a point–a point worth revisiting now that it’s hot out. And it is hot: As we write, Google informs us that the temperature in New York, outside our lovely air-conditioned apartment, is 88 degrees. Over the weekend we were in Tennessee, and at one point our rental-car thermometer informed us the outside temperature was 111, albeit on blacktop.
