An Early Spring Is A Dark ‘Climate Change’ (scam) Warning Or Something

There’s an old term for when it gets really warm during the fall or winter: Indian summer. Because weather things happen. But, in Warmist World, this is doom

The Dark Warning of an Early Spring

(Margaret Renkl starts out with a bit about the recent warmth, and birds waking her up with singing, which is totally horrible)

Winter was brutal this year, highs in the teens day after day after day, torrential rains whenever the mercury rose into a more normal range for Middle Tennessee. A polar vortex prompted the president of the United States, who apparently does not know the difference between climate and weather, to tweet, “Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!”

In this context, even a person who knows the difference between climate and weather might be forgiven for welcoming a warm day in February — a gorgeous day when birds are singing and little creatures are stirring in the brush, and all the sleeping turtles have crawled out of the deep mud at the bottom of the lake and lumbered onto the slick trunks of fallen trees. I paused to study them sunning themselves, all lined up in a row like prehistoric rosary beads.

But, doom is coming

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest,” Hemingway famously wrote in “A Movable Feast.”

But this, it turns out, was not a false spring. This was actual spring arriving very early.

The symptoms of climate change are well known, and its risks to some of our favorite creatures — tigers, sea turtles, elephants, giant pandas, mountain gorillas, monarch butterflies — are equally clear, though it’s easy to forget that in the comings and goings of our own daily lives. In December a National Geographic video of a starving polar bear went viral as people faced at a gut level the undeniable consequences of a phenomenon that can sometimes seem mainly theoretical.

Yeah, apparently spring wasn’t arriving, it was just a bit a warm up, which happens. But, not in Warmist World, where everything that happens is The Worst Ever, and a Harbinger Of Annihilation.

And if spring arrives earlier than expected in the Northern Hemisphere, migrating birds will show up, right on schedule, to find their typical food sources vanished, with terrible implications for the survival of their young.

We could fix this all with a tax, you know. And giving up most of your freedom to Big Government.

    Because in the last 4.5billion years the arrival of spring has never varied…..

    Indian Summer is a real thing. My grandmother used to talk about it many years ago. If you live in a snowy climate like we did, you always looked forward to an Indian Summer in January or February. It’s like Nature’s way of giving you a little week long break before walloping you again with two to three more months of lousy weather.
