The Nonsense of Global Warming
By Paul Johnson
From SPPI, September 29, 2008
August was one of the nastiest months I can remember: torrential rain; a hailstorm or two; cold, bitter winds; and mists. But we are accustomed to such weather in England. Lord Byron used to say that an English summer begins on July 31 and ends on Aug. 1. He called 1816 “the year without a summer.” He spent it gazing across Lake Geneva, watching the storms, with 18-year-old Mary Shelley. The lightening flickering across the lake inspired her Frankenstein, the tale of the man-made monster galvanized into life by electricity.
This summer’s atrocious weather tempted me to tease a Green whom I know. “Well, what about your weather theory now?” (One of the characteristics of Greens is that they know no history.) He replied: “Yes, this weather is unprecedented. England has never had such an August before. It’s global warming, of course.” That’s the Greens’ stock response to anything weather-related. Too much sun? “Global warming.” Too little sun? “Global warming.” Drought? “Global warming.” Floods? “Global warming.” Freezing cold? “Global warming.”
