The Cause of Cold Weather Is Global Warming?

You probably heard the news that it snowed in Las Vegas.

Yep, Sin City becoming slush city.

Hell truly has frozen over.

Weird thing is, what's happening in Vegas isn't staying in Vegas.

Cold weather and nasty storms already the norm. And it isn't technically even winter yet.

First time southern Nevada's seen anything like this in 30 years.

First time southern California's been looking at 30 degrees this early in 20 years.

So I'm looking at all this wacky weather and asking a buddy of mine who's an environmentalist — you see, I live fair and balanced.

I ask him, "What's going on here? I thought you said I could throw out my parka for a thong?"

The image immediately caused him to recoil.

But he collected himself, then reminded me, "Neil, this is global warming."

"Wait a minute," I said.

"I thought global warming meant, I don't know, warming?"

No, he assured me, this is all part of God's great reaction to man's not-so-great wrecking of his planet.

Now I'm not the sharpest meteorological tool on the map, but even I wondered how my tree-hugging pal could have it both ways.

He assured me last year snow would soon be a memory.

That the oceans would be warming.

More hurricanes would be coming.

And glaciers would be melting.

But more snow than ever this year.

The first snow Vegas has seen in 30 years.

Temperatures below zero in at least 12 states in the Midwest and west, the most so early in any year.

And all coming after a hurricane season that brought largely bupkis this year.

"It's all part of warming," my friend reminded me.

You see, his is not a new forecast, just a revised one.

Where you can kind of have your environmental cake and eat it too.

Where the earth getting warmer is warming, and the earth getting cooler is warming.

So nothing to stop Washington from big environmental spending.

You see, my friend is pushing Congress for more such spending.

I wished him luck as he headed out.

And suggested one other thing: Bring a coat.
