Global Warming, Where Art Thou?

Saw this story today:

Record snowfall, plunging temperatures hit the area

A new record was set Wednesday when Chicago had its ninth consecutive day of measurable snowfall, according to the National Weather Service.

The previous record was eight consecutive days set from Dec. 13 to 20,

Snowfall records in Chicago date back to 1884.

A wind chill warning has been issued as temperatures as temperatures will not
reach single digits until Friday.

The forecast for Thursday is: Sunny and cold, with a high near -3. Wind chill values as low as -33. West northwest wind between 10 and 15 mph.

Thursday Night: Clear, with a low around -16. Wind chill values as low as -34. West wind around 10 mph.
And this:

Wicked: Coldest Temps In Over A Decade
First Day With A Low Colder Than -10
In Chicago Since 1999


The typical exercise of bundling up for winter won't cut it on Thursday.

It's time to break out the long underwear and the electric gloves, for what is expected to go down as the coldest day in more than a decade.

The National
Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning until noon Friday.
The forecast
high for Thursday is expected to linger in the negative range at -2, dropping to -15 overnight. Strong northwest winds are producing wind chill factors of -25 to -40.
OK, it's cold, really cold. So what? Well, what does this mean for global warming alarmists? You'd think they'd be sheepishly distancing themselves from their hysterical pronouncements of imminent disaster.

But, you'd be wrong. I saw this comment on a blog yesterday:

Let's cut the crap. The ice caps are melting as we speak. We are talking
massive, catastrophic, irreversible (in the lifetimes of us and the next few
generations, at the very least) climate change. I don't doubt that Obama wants
to address the problem, but we saw in September how Congress reacts when they
believe a real crisis is at hand. So far, Obama is not demonstrating that level
of urgency.
I'm not kidding -- you can't make this stuff up. Talk about being unhinged! At some point, these people are going to have to wake up and realize that reality is not conforming itself to their political agenda.

Isn't it curious? You'd think they'd be happy: crisis averted! Nope. Instead, they're furious. Hmm. Perhaps they're not as much interested in saving the planet as they are in running our lives.
