Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Dana Milbank - Global warming's snowball fight - washingtonpost.com

The back-to-back snowstorms in the capital were an inconvenient meteorological phenomenon for Al Gore.

"It's going to keep snowing in D.C. until Al Gore cries 'uncle'," Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) exulted on Twitter.

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) posted photos on Facebook of "Al Gore's New Home" -- a six-foot igloo the Inhofe family built on Capitol Hill.

"Where is Al Gore?" taunted Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.).

"He has not been seen since the snow and the arctic blast have pummeled the Eastern Seaboard in America, turning it into a frozen tundra," reported Fox News's Glenn Beck, who also tastefully suggested hari-kari for climate scientists.


Al Gore, for one, seems to realize it's time for a new tactic. New TV ads released during last week's blizzards by Gore's climate advocacy group say nothing about climate science. They show workers asking their senators for more jobs from clean energy.

That's a good sign. If the Washington snows persuade the greens to put away the slides of polar bears and pine beetles and to keep the focus on national security and jobs, it will have been worth the shoveling.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

What a putz Dana Milbank is! Someone of some profile needs to push back on this idiotic meme. Have none of these idiots noticed that this has been a record warm January in Vancouver Canada. Geez, how can it be warmer in Canada in January than in Washington D.C.? Couldn't be heat being extracted from mid-latitudes for transport to the Arctic. That would be so confusing. These fools probably think cold is a quantity.
