It’s Never Too Early To Link “Climate Change” And Christmas

And like some radio stations going to all Christmas music and retailers putting up Christmas displays before Thanksgiving, Warmists are preparing for Christmas early

Climate Change Threatens Christmas Trees, Maple

Growing the perfect Christmas tree takes close to ten years, but in March 2012 just four days of extreme heat pummeled much of Vermont and New Hampshire’s Christmas tree crop.

“It gave us an eye opener, you know, something we hadn’t anticipated,” says Sandy Wilmot, a Forest Health Specialist with Vermont’s Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation.

Bob White’s Christmas trees withstood the heat then, but as he surveys his Essex farm this year he’s discovered a new problem.

The culprit? Summer flash floods. (snip)

“We’ve already seen some dramatic changes in the last fifty years,” she says.

In those fifty years, winter temperatures spiked some four point five degrees. Summer temperatures, two degrees. Additional warming will change the make up of our forests.

Bummer, trees can’t withstand tiny temperature changes. I wonder how any trees survived during all the previous warm and cool periods? It’s not like they’ve evolved over millions of years. But, hey, you know, Bad Weather only started happening in 1988 or something. Funny how North Carolina is seeing a top rate Christmas tree crop this year. Oh, wait, sorry, Christmas trees are doomed in the future. My Bad!

Of course, Warmists are pushing their dogma for gifts

Vivienne Westwood is no stranger to championing environmental causes. In fact, it could be said that Dame Viv’s passionate political campaigns often steal the limelight away from her fashion collections.

So, it makes perfect sense that Vivienne should want to try and revolutionise our Christmas habits, especially when it comes to things like wasting paper and buying too many throwaway products, which, let’s face it, we’re probably all guilty of.

In an endeavour to make us all a little bit greener, and to think of our envirnonent, Vivienne has collaborated with cosmetics company Lush to create a scarf, or knot wrap, that also doubles as gift wrap. (WT- misspellings are the stories, not mine. Not that I’m perfect)

The scarfs include the notion of “climate revolution”

The knot-wraps are available in camel or light pink and are printed with two Climate Revolution images designed by Ms Westwood. The black-eyed unsmiling face – the Face of War – is the designer’s symbol for the fight against climate change and environmental degradation.

Warmists are really depressing people, wouldn’t you say?

    The use of anecdotes is a tried and true tactic for distracting from the important issues of a debate. Are the changes in the Vermont Xmas tree and maple crops a result of global warming? Possibly, even probably, but that doesn’t change the anecdotal nature of this “evidence”.

    How does it make you feel when your opposition uses a flawed (but highly effective) debate tactic against you?

    How does it make me feel? I lose faith in the intelligence of the human race. Having an opponent use the flawed debate technique of calling people “deniers” or “skeptics” does that to one. The other flawed debate technique they use, as said elsewhere, is they start the argument with the conclusion, and then work back words, ignoring all evidence to the contrary along the way. Does that answer your question?

  3. Jeffery says:

    jl,

    How do you feel about the term “warmist”?

    Since we all agree that the Earth is warming, the argument is about the cause. Climate scientists cite evidence supporting human-caused warming. Others claim the cause is not known or is natural.

    Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up
    and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers
    and both show the same results.

  7. It’s an awesome paragraph in support of all the internet viewers; they will obtain
    advantage from it I am sure.

  8. […] cause North Carolina’s Christmas tree industry did pretty darned well this year. Wisconsin’s industry is doing quite well. So are others. […]
