Since everything is evidence that global warming is a myth, I submit the following as exhibits, pictures of roses taken today in my wife’s garden.
Some might argue that the existence of blooming Connecticut roses (and should the tiny little fellow in the second picture still be alive?) in November is more substantial evidence of global warming than, as Fox would have it, cold weather in January is evidence for its non-existence. But such people are silly rationalists, hidebound adherents to a “fact based” scientism of the past, when everyone should know, as the Republicans tell us, that God has given us his word that he won’t destroy the planet again.
The pictures were taken after we took a walk in a nearby state park, enjoying the typically balmy temperatures of mid-November.
My wife, who as a gardener pays attention to these things, tells me that we have yet to have a killing frost, which according to Connecticut’s DEP is now about a month overdue.
By they way, I realize this is, in a sense, only a single data point, much like Fox’s cold day in January. But those roses, and the little insect, owe their existence to a sustained deviation from the norm, so I maintain they are a little more significant that a cold day in the winter.
