And it’s only February:

Yes, so powerful is the effect of a trace gas that serves mainly as plant food, that it can make the world cooler while simultaneously causing dangerous warming. Call it a one-stop shop for natural disasters, all of which can be reliably blamed on Mankind, and the only solution to which is greater governmental control (1) over our economies and daily lives.

Next up: man-caused climate change causes sun to rise in West and Barack Obama to become a fan of the free market.

Global warming — is there nothing it can’t do?

And is there any way the climate alarmists could make themselves look more fatuous and desperate? Why, yes, there is.

Hat-tip to WUWT, which notes the headline has since changed, probably out of embarrassment. And here’s a link to the original Georgia Tech press release, which climate-hysteric “journalists” predictably screwed up.

(1) Especially by transnational bureaucracies answerable to no one and supported by global taxes. Winning!

    Why would they be embarrassed by that headline? First, that’s what their Goracle has been saying for a decade now, and second, it makes as much sense as anything else they say!

  2. Neo says:

    The research included scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and New York’s Columbia University, and was supported by NASA and the National Science Foundation.

  3. Neo says:

    But in almost all of these cases, the water vapour for the snowfall did not come with the cold air from the Artic, but from the South.

  4. Tex says:

    So that’s why the past couple of winters have been so cold in the northern hemisphere. Silly me! I thought it was because the Earth was simply getting colder and not because the Earth was getting warmer. Oh wait! Did I say that right?

  5. Carlos says:

    @Neo: It could have included seven hundred Nobel prize winners, Neo, and it still wouldn’t make a lick of sense.

    And anything, literally anything, coming out of Columbia is suspect.

    As far as where the water vapor comes from, OK. And your point is? That’s where the vast majority of moisture has always come from here in the United States, and you’re stating it like it’s a major change in the physical reality of northern hemisphere weather.

    Great headline, but that’s part of the argument. AGW can do anything and everything. Look out the window and no matter what kind of weather you’re having AGW can explain it away.

    I think I finally got the message. “Nice earth you got here, be a shame if anything happened to it.”
