"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Global Warming? Not in Milwaukee.

Today is just another low 70s beautiful day in August here in Milwaukee.   Maybe it's hot elsewhere, but this has been a remarkably mild summer for us.   So my conclusion is that there's no such thing as global warming.

Of course that's just anecdotal.   Sort of like whenever there's a hurricane or tornado or week of heat elsewhere the Left automatically says that phenomena X is the effect and global warming is the cause.   Because odd stretches of weather that occur fairly randomly aren't actually the norm for existence in the physical world.   Because you're anti-science if you disagree.   Because (probably) racism (somehow).

For the Left, whenever something happens it's caused by global warming and, ultimately, by evil corporations and evil Westerners using too much fossil fuel.   Because their worldview requires reducing every phenomena to a Manichaen agon of good and evil.   Environmentalism is a faith, replete with saints and sinners, angels and demons.  

For conservatives, we know that sometimes it's just the weather.
