The Mail had another one of its 'there was weather' stories the other day, discussing the recent chilly and rainy spell in Britain. I looked at the story with a heavy heart. Perhaps people would realise this was weather. Perhaps people would know that Europe has recently been experiencing very high temperatures which have led to wildfire conditions, as reported by that bastion of green climate-change love, the, er, Daily Mail. Perhaps they wouldn't all go "Muuuuughh, global warming what global warming innit???!!!!eleven???!!!!".
You can hope, can't you. Oh you can dream.
Wasn't it only a week or tow ago that the same Met Office declared that the planet would be uninhabitable in a few years because of soaring temperatures? Or am I mistaken?
Despite what we are told about "GLOBAL WARMING" and all the photos of places without ice, the planet is COOLING (by their own figures not mine).

I think 'anon' is referring to this story about retreating ice in Alaska which was peddled by those evil climate change Nazis at, er, the Daily Mail. As that story said:
The graphic photographs, released last week by the American military, show huge swathes of summer ice cover have disappeared from the Chukchi Sea.
The photos were kept strictly secret by the Washington administration under George W Bush and were declassified by the White House last week.
The Mail - The Daily Mail - even called it 'global warming'. Did they inform Richard Littlejohn and Melanie Phillips of this bizarre phenomenon, which they presented as fact rather than some made-up fairytale by the diversity scum who only want to tax us? How dare those pinko bastards at the Mail do this to us!
Further down the 'wet weather in Britain in summer shocker' article, though, are more comments backing up anon:
Third wet summer in a row. I'm heartly sick of it and if anyone mentions global warming I think I'll scream.

Christ. Yes, wet weather = no possibility of climate change ever. Well done Polly, you've fucking cracked it. It's a textbook Mail response to any of these stories. I mean, what sort of berk would claim that just because of the weather he sees out of his window, there's no such thing as climate change? What kind of utter fool would try such a laughably nonsensical argument? What kind of... oh. I see. Yes.
Comment of the day though goes to this:
These jobsworth's with vested interests will still try and convince the gullible masses that unless we hand over even more of OUR money to combat so called ' Climate change', we will all be doomed in 30, 40, or was it 45 years?
The only thing at risk if we stand up and say ' ENOUGH' of this ridiculous scaremongering, are the copious amounts of well paid worthless jobs that these leeches occupy.

Yes Paul. It's not as if there are any countries currently experiencing record weather conditions which are putting people's lives in danger, as reported by those leftie climate-change bastards at, er, The Daily Mail, is it? I mean, if that happened and it was a story available to read on the Mail's website, you would have thought twice about that crock of shit you posted there, wouldn't you Paul?
