Global Warming Beach Party Time! (NSFW)


Get out your bikinis, because we're getting hit by global warming everybody! Oh wait. We're not? Well that just leaves us all in our swimsuits in the snow! Silly us. Yes it's that time again. Time to make fun of the global warming alarmists as the North East gets pummeled by record amounts of snow. I know, I know- warming could actually lead to more snow and even to colder weather in some places. I've heard that before. Have you ever heard of Karl Popper?


What's a climate skeptic to do at such a perfect time? Laugh. Laugh really, really hard at how silly the alarmists look. And post lots and lots of pictures of beautiful women in their bikinis enjoying all the "global warming" we've been getting, global warming beach party-style. (Yes, this is my libertarian, global warming skeptic homage to Stacy McCain's Rule 5). Since this was such a big hit last year, and it's snowing even more this year, I figured why not :-)

I am not an animal rights activist myself, but I do love the "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaign. I like that it makes the point cleverly, humorously, and peacefully. You've got to hand it to them as good marketers. Climate realists should use this same strategy. I'd love to see a campaign with pictures like this and captions like "Still waiting for that warming catastrophe..."


Speaking of which, have you heard of LOLA? It's the Ladies of Liberty Alliance. They sell awesome calendars and they organize like crazy to turn out libertarian activists to important events, spread and defend the libertarian platform, and do some solid community service (like sending care packages to the troops).


And I know, I know: climate and weather aren't the same thing. Cold weather doesn't prove the climate isn't warming. Outliers don't mean there isn't a warming trend. It's not just warming, it's climate change- more extreme weather of all kinds. Yeah- and we've always been at war with East Asia, right?

I also dare you to look me in the eye with a straight face and say that if we had an unseasonably sweltering winter, that warmists wouldn't be touting it constantly as they argued for an oppressive global carbon regulatory scheme. We both know they would be.

Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to go put on my thong and some flip flops and grill some burgers on the deck. Peace!
