“Global Warming Causing Record Cold Temps at Winter Olympics” … So goes the general meme from the NBC crew assigned to cover the ‘coming together’ of the two Korea’s in promoting the Winter Olympics. In the middle of Winter. In South Korea. Got it? Good.
Folks like Al Gore, James Hansen, and Michael E. Mann have been trying to get it through our thick heads that ‘Global Warming’ (*Trademark*) is real and is happening.
Except when it isn’t.
Then it’s ‘Climate Change’, which to the unlearned is what happens when the planet’s climate changes, temperatures go up and up and up except when they go down and down and down. That climate change is different from ‘Climate Change’ (*Trademark*), which is what happens when temperatures go up and up and up and down and down and down because people barbecue outside during the summer and drive their cars without first asking permission from the government and the IPCC. Got it? Good.
Now that we peons can witness both warm Olympics and cold Olympics from the comfort of our own environment, means that The Climate Is Changing: ‘The Science is Settled’ (*Trademark*), so can we please proceed with passing all the laws and regulations that the aforementioned Humanitarians demand? Thank you.
Nevertheless, high-profile events like the current ‘Global Warming’ (*Trademark*) Winter Olympics simply opens up the opportunity for liberal progressive DemoMarxists mouthpieces to intimate that we plebs actually play a part in destroying the planetary order of the weather instituted by God himself. And it begins within the great orbital furnace which is central to our very existence … the Sun. Due to this furnace, the only thing you can say about the weather that will be 100% accurate is that weather is unpredictable.
Which leads me into today’s topic from Brian Joondeph in American Thinker:
No one should be surprised that the Winter Olympics, just like the NFL, is no longer primarily a sporting event. Instead of ice-skating and skiing, the major sport in the Olympics is media virtue-signaling over race, gender, and climate.
Not surprisingly, TV ratings are downfor the winter games, just as they were for the latest NFL season. The big media are swooning over Rocket Man’s sister, demonstrating that journalists have never met a communist dictator they didn’t immediately fall in love with, whether Castro, Gorbachev, or Che Guevara. Then there was the somehow racist coin toss that determined the U.S. flag-bearer and the obsession over the sexual orientation of figure skaters.
All that’s missing is the obligatory lecture from retired broadcaster Bob Costas on global warming. Or gun control.
Speaking of temperatures, NBC reports how cold it is in Pyeongchang. “Record-breaking cold.” “Bone-chilling temperatures.” Concerns over “hypothermia.” “Temperatures as low as 11 degrees Fahrenheit.”
What part of “winter” in “Winter Olympics” is confusing to NBC? Was anyone expecting to ski or snowboard in balmy 50-degree weather?
NBC, rather than fretting over the cold temperatures, should be rejoicing. Such cold temperatures suggest that global warming may be a thing of the past – despite Donald Trump sitting in the White House and Mike Pence frowning at Rocket Sister in the VIP booth at the Olympic stadium.
But wait. Maybe these cold temperatures are indeed evidence of global warming. The scholarly Scientific American tells us, without a trace of irony, that “[g]lobal warming can mean harsher winter weather.” Of course it does. Does that mean the converse is true, that global cooling will lead to warmer winters? Or is modern climate science a one-way street with predetermined conclusions regardless of the facts on the ground?
Which is due to climate change? Warm Olympics or cold Olympics? Is the planet warming? Or are some winters just warmer or cooler than past winters? Or are some locales better suited for snow and cold than others?

Global cooling will be much more destructive to civilization than fake warming would ever have been (had it been real, that is). Crops thrive and human productivity accelerates with increased temps. Diseases flourish, crop production is inhibited and humans perish in the cold. It really is that simple.
Global warming is a good thing. Global cooling is a tremendous threat to human well-being. Either way, God is in control and reserves the right to the last word.
Don’t forget the crucial point that all ‘alarmists’ make. When the temperatures are low, that’s merely “weather” and therefore irrelevant. When the temperatures are inordinately high, that’s ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’ and must be taken very seriously.
Which reminds me of a newscast I saw a few years back when summer temps across the western US were triple digits day after day after day. A hyper-dramatic reporter asked a climate scientist, “To what do you attribute all these high temperatures?” The climate scientist nonchalantly replied, “Well, it is July.”
Truth bats cleanup.
President Donald J. Trump – MAGA!
