Flip-Flop Again

So, just a couple of years ago everyone was screaming "Global Warming." Al Gore said the polar ice caps would be completely melted by 2014. Then things started cooling off and in 2014 the ice caps were at record HIGH levels... and it became "Climate Change." This year they are predicting an extremely cold winter and well above average snow fall across the majority of the United States, dipping much further south than normal. Many of you are too young to remember, but when I was in High School the "experts" were telling us that the word was beginning to go into another ice age. (Check out that cover of Time magazine from 1977!) 

I've got a news flash for all those eggheads... er, I mean experts...
The word goes through cycles or patterns. always has, always will. The thing that most people fail to understand is that these hucksters (ala Al Gore) have found a method of sucking millions of dollars into their coffers and pockets by hyping fear with their predictions. Right now, fresh on the heals of telling us the world was going to die from the heat... they are once again peddling the notion of another ice age. Seriously people... wake up.

Yes, we need to take care of our planet. But we don't need to pay these idiots millions of dollars to sell fear and allow them to limit our freedoms and choices based on these false predictions. It's a cycle. Nothing we can do is going to change that. Get used to it.
