Notice how these hypocritical, elitist liberals curse the engines of capitalism--oil companies, while flying about the country in private jets (thanks to oil companies) to deliver their "scientifically-anchored" takes on manmade climate change. Of course, they're not concerned with the political stakes of so-called global warming at all (sarcasm intended). Here, one of the Kennedy clan decided to open his illiterate trap about his empirical perceptions of East Coast weather and HIS claimed causes of that weather. Surprise! How about a record-busting D.C. blizzard to shut you up, RFK, Jr.? More poetic justice.
See how believers and alarmists will use empirical data when it suits their argument, but when it goes the other way, they either ignore the data or, incredibly, claim it's ALSO caused by global warming. Therefore, their theory is that warming causes both cooling and warming! That's why the term "climate change" is now used in place of global warming. Smoke and mirrors. Of course the climate both cools and warms. Duh!
In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today's anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don't own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.
Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil and its carbon cronies continue to pour money into think tanks whose purpose is to deceive the American public into believing that global warming is a fantasy.
