Lawyers like to say that when the law is on your side, argue the law; when the facts are on your side, argue the facts. When the facts and the law are against you, pound on the table.
The anthropogenic warming crowd has a possibly less effective approach. Global temperatures are turning against them, trends are running in the opposite direction of what they predicted and they need something on which to pound.
Yes, when in trouble, turn to deep-thinking, highly respected, universally acknowledged pillar of the scientific community - none other than Christie Hefner, only daughter of the randy Rumplestiltskin himself, Hugh.
And Christie came through with flying colors, telling the low-octane types on MSNBC that warm weather from global warming has been killing gang-bangers in the Windy City.
“We are having this climate change effect that is driving” the rash of 500 homicides in 2012, our gal genius declared to the gullible gumballs on MSNBC.
That’s right. The infamous, home of the gangland execution and machine-gun massacre is the victim of global warming.
Really, it seems as though Christie just looked at the pictures when she was running Playboy.
Maybe she should have done a little reading on the way.
