Tim Blair has post on the deep cold that hit Central Asia in January. All I could think was “at last the Brutal Afghanistan Winter has shown up”.

Here in AK we have had a far snowier winter than is the norm, and a couple weeks of brutal cold. -15 deg F as a high is getting way down there for Anchorage, although the dead calm that prevailed pulled the sting.

Tok was -70 F.

I blame global warming.

What’s hilarious is that if you read through the post on Blair’s weblog, you’ll see that people do, in fact, blame this cold wave on global warmening.

I would never use this year’s weather as a data one way or another with respect to climate change.

But that is because I don’t confuse weather with climate in the first place.

Global warmists, on the other hand, are very happy to accuse others of that mistake, while relentlessly committing it themselves.

The 2005 hurricane season is a perfect example.

Actually, it’s a good thing people do confuse weather with climate, otherwise we’d be completely at the mercy of the IPCC crowd. Nobody either experiences or even really understands the thing called “climate” in any but the vaguest sense. Thie is what a lot of scientists (or more properly, proponents of scientism) fail to grasp. Most folks don’t believe in germ theory because they’ve checked under a microscope or verified the sums or because they particularly trust those who have. Still less because the scientific community tells them it is the “best science available”. They believe in it because their antibiotics and vaccinations work. The poor saps at the IPCC can’t even point yet to a tiny rise in sea-level around the Maldives, never mind peaches in the Arctic.

Memo: To All Global Warming Scientists:

Show me the money!
