We're Tired

We're tired.  Tired of the climate bullshit.  The climate alarmists have been spewing doomsday scenarios for most of my adult life, and none of them has panned out.  For example, in 1975 Newsweek ran an article about the coming glaciation.  Yeah, that link takes you to Snopes.  but, look what Newsweek said:
The central fact is that after three quarters of a century of extraordinarily mild conditions, the earth’s climate seems to be cooling down. Meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend […] but they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the next century. […]
Nowadays, it's global warming.  The same gloom-and-doom, and politicians make hay out of it.  The voters are seeing through the poly.  I see where Australia elected a conservative government over the weekend.  The New York Times put the blame on the strident climate alarmists.
 On Saturday, the conservative party — the Liberal/National coalition — held on to its majority in Australia's parliament, even picking up a few seats and stunning observers who had predicted a Labor Party victory. In fact, The New York Times ran a lament that the climate alarmists lost their election.
Yeah, because we're tired of your bullshit. Any politician around me who talks about climate is an idiot.  The climate is not their concern.  Really, t's not.

UPDATE** From Instapundit, since the original posting:
“It is the middle of May and things are looking more like winter than spring. Winter apparently is not finished with parts of the Northeast, nor the West or Europe. In many places around the northern hemisphere its the latest start of spring on record. Cold air coming in from Canada is likely to cause a mix of snow and rain in higher elevations of New Hampshire, Vermont and much of northern Maine by the 14th of May, CNN meteorologist Gene Norman said. That means we will have have had 9 months of winter weather in some parts of the United States as well as in Europe and Russia.”
Nine months of winter sounds like climate change, but not the kind we've been led to expect.

According to Wikipedia, the "sky is falling" story of Chicken Little has been around since at least the Brother's Grimm in the 1820's. And, yes, I'm tired of that BS also.

I always like to point out the weather guessers can't accurately predict the weather over the span of 12 hours, much less day-to-day. So, how in the world, can they tell me what is going to happen years or centuries in the future? They can't, it is all speculation.

Another childhood story that comes to mind is, 'The Boy Who Cried, Wolf'

I like this cartoon. It encapsulates the climate change hysteria, along with what was being pushed for that year.

But "The science is settled"

And yet they're saying this the second warmest spring ever... sigh...
