READER: So again we're being told that the severe cold snap we're about to experience... is caused by global warming. OK.

My question to proponents of this theory is always the same: we've had cold smacks like this since, um, forever. Should we assume that they were always precipitated by global warming -- and specifically, by MAN MADE global warming -- or some, oh, i dunno, natural cause? Since many of these cold hits occurred long before man could have been considered a culprit in such nefarious doings... and long before, ahem, that dastardly carbon footprint was stomping all over our helpless planet.

Never get a very good answer. Imagine my shock.
