Sean Hannity's at it again. Every chance he gets to stick it to global warming (and former Vice President Al Gore) is a chance too good to pass up, I see.
But guess what Sean? The planet just experienced the hottest decade on record. Snowfall or no fall, global warming is real.
Last night on his show on Fox News, Hannity (who's no climatoligist, as far as we know) claimed that the recent spate of winter snow storms in the Washington, D.C. region clearly means that the planet isn’t warming up at all. Did the mouse in your pocket tell you that Sean? On what, exactly, are you basing that claim?
Hannity then attacked Gore, calling his anti-global warming advocacy hysterical.
Said Hannity: "And tonight’s 'Meltdown' is brought to you by the D.C. snow storm, you know, the storm that dumped about two feet of snow on the Washington area over the weekend causing thousands of power outages and keeping many people home from work today. And it’s the most severe winter storm in years, which would seem to contradict Al Gore’s hysterical global warming theories…"
No one's suggesting it won't ever snow again, Sean. But one big storm doesn't rule out ten years of cilmatology. I'm just saying.
