By way of Newsbusters, here’s our global warming headline of the day, courtesy of Time Magazine:

The article itself discusses a few theories as to why the heat is causing the cold. Normally I don’t like my scientific facts to be so littered with the word “theory,” but I guess we can blame the ravages of global warming for the over-theorization of settled-science.

It seems like only yesterday that Time was parroting a different eco tune:

Update: Aw shucks, it’s been brought to my attention that the above is a Photoshopped cover from this 2007 issue of Time. However, Time did explore the “theory” of global cooling in the late 70’s.

Jeff Foxworthy could get a whole bit out of the “blizzards caused by global warming” insanity:

“If your copy of An Inconvenient Truth is frozen in a block of ice… you might be a victim of global warming.”

“If your pet penguin asks you to buy him a Snuggie… you might be a victim of global warming.”

“If you’re on stage in a Florida strip club and your tongue gets stuck to the pole… you might be a victim of global warming.”

The proper headline to the above Time column should have been, “Holiday Blizzard: More Signs of Winter,” but how many carbon credits would that sell?
