Apparently, even cold weather is a sign of global warming

The folks pushing the climate change ideology have gone from desperate to outright ridiculous.  After the incalculable damage done to their credibility by ClimateGate, now we have this claim:  "Report:  Harsh winter a sign of climate change" (see picture).

This report cited in the article comes from that great bastion of scientific analysis called the National Wildlife Federation (cue the sarcastic laughter). 

If you've been following the climate change debate, you've realized by now that any weather development is "evidence" of global warming.

If it's hot, you obviously blame it on global warming.
If it's cold and snowy, it's also global warming.
If it's wet or dry, blame global warming.
Heck, I've even seen some people try to blame the tsunami and earthquakes on global warming.

We all know people who cling irrationally to unprovable theories and who interpret any new evidence as a confirmation of their view.  It's called paranoia.  It's also called conspiracy theory.  You can't reason with such folks.  If you try, they cut you out of their "peer reviewed" journals and they fudge their numbers to try and prove you wrong.

I'm not surprised that radicalized environmental groups pursue this road, but it annoys me when the main stream media swallows the bait, hook, line and sinker.  The article featured in this picture is from MS-NBC.  The report was also featured in the Washington Post.  Goes to show that you really can't trust the main stream media anymore.
