It’s Independence Day week, and what better way to celebrate than to free ourselves from the clutches of liberalism?
Specifically, we’re referring to freeing our minds from the global warming hoax.
If you’re a liberal, you honestly believe that the Earth has warmed significantly over the last few years alone, to the point where oceans will be boiling over, and cities will be left in underwater ruins.
The following meme however, adds some perspective, looking at the average temperature of the Earth from 1996 – when Al Gore was still relevant – to 2016, twenty years and at least forty pounds later.
Take a look …
Prove it, you say?
In this article by the New York Times in 1996, reporters declare that Earth has just experienced the “hottest year on record.”
“The average temperature was 58.72 degrees Fahrenheit,” the report states, “seven-hundredths of a degree higher than the previous record, established in 1990.”
Now, contrast that with the following article from Air and Space Magazine in 2016:
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which partners with NASA to produce an annual report on the planet’s climate, says that in 2016, Earth’s temperature rose above the 20th century average of 57 degrees Fahrenheit, making the planet about 58.7 degrees.
What’s interesting to note in that article, is that the alarmists indicate that the 58.7 degree temperature, much like the same reading the Times reported in 1996, is also “the hottest on record.”
To summarize –
- New York Times (1996) – 58.7 °F = Hottest year on record.
- Air & Space Magazine (2016) – 58.7 °F = Hottest year on record.
- Consensus (1996 to 2016) – We’re doomed!
So enjoy your Independence Day week by chatting about this fun fact over a backyard barbecue. ‘Cause if anything is better than a nice summer cookout, it’d be watching another liberal talking point go up in smoke.
