PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) | — Add Punxsutawney Phil to the camp of weather watchers who are convinced about global warming.
What a crock! Who writes this stuff!
The groundhog did not see his shadow Friday which, according to German folklore, means folks can expect an early spring instead of six more weeks of winter.
So, because of a few fanatics, an early spring means “man made” global warming is real? Gimme a break!
“Global warming has caused a great debate. This mild winter makes it seem just great,” Punxsutawney Groundhog Club Inner Circle member Dr. Paul “Rusty” Johnston said in reading the prediction. “On this Groundhog Day we think of one thing. Will we have winter or will we have spring?”
Here’s a thought…. no CO2, no plant life, no plant life, no people! Warmer weather means longer growing seasons, longer growing seasons, more food. Sounds like a win/win situation to me, so what are all the lefties so up in arms about?
The Germans believed that if a hibernating animal cast a shadow on Feb. 2 — the Christian holiday of Candlemas — winter would last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early.
Anybody know the accuracy record for the furry prognosticator?
