New York Times Jumps the Global Warming Shark, Declares Alaska Will Soon Be Like Florida

You never want to go full moonbat, because if you do, no one will take you seriously ever again. For example, the erstwhile “paper of record” cast away the last tattered remnants of credibility in a guffaw-inducingly lame attempt to prop up the collapsing global warming hoax by quoting climate kook Camilo Mora:

“Alaska is going to be the next Florida by the end of the century.”

Alaskan liberals may want to beat the rush by trading in their snowshoes for flip-flops right now. Others can enjoy a good laugh at this latest substitution of hyperbolic hysteria for rational argument.

Professor Moron also provides us with dates of doom for various American cities:

As for New York City, the nation’s most populous city, Professor Mora at the University of Hawaii projects that 2047 will be the “year of climate change departure” — when weather that seems extraordinarily hot and catastrophic by today’s standards will become the norm.

“The coasts are all going to be facing very hot temperatures,” Professor Mora said. Washington, D.C., will reach its tipping point the same year, under his model; Los Angeles has until 2048; San Francisco, 2049 and Chicago, 2052. Detroit has until 2051, and Anchorage, 2071.

Given an sufficiently generous government grant, the nutty professor could probably give the exact day each city will need to be abandoned as the imaginary crisis closes in.

Meanwhile, back in reality, it has been 18 years since we have seen any global warming, despite all the CO2 the ChiComs have been spewing into the air.

The only way the Slimes could top this story would be to publish this as an actual photograph of global warming as viewed from outer space:

    I guess Minnesota will be like North Carolina then. I’m still movin’ to Florida.

    The years 2048, 2049, 2050 and so on, are sufficiently far enough into the future for the ones behind this lie to avoid taking responsibility for their failed prophecies as they will probably be dead or too old and gaga to care. They are also hoping that this will give them enough time to have installed their statist tyranny by then, so a failed prophecy won’t matter because there won’t be anybody that will be able to do anything about it.

    I read an amusingly astute comment somewhere recently about ISIS uniforms (sorry/apologies – can’t remember to whom attribution belongs): ‘who would have ever thought someone would make a fortune selling ski masks in the desert?’

    so, who knows . . . maybe someone will make a killing (pun intended) selling flip-flops in Alaska?

    ‘by the end of the century’ is supposed to gin up support from blacks and other dumbed down liberal voters who make up a large % of the Democrat base? Blacks, who riot when their welfare check is changed from the end of the month to the 1st?

Blacks, who riot when their welfare check is changed from the end of the month to the 1st? Here’s a little test on the efficacy of using ‘end of the century’ to drum up support: Send ‘Waters’ World’ to Detroit or Newark and ask a convocation of urban youth when the end of the century is. For more laughs, send him to Howard University and ask the same question.

    Liberal elites desperately need the AWG boogie man to tear down prosperity and productivity. If they really cared about the climate they would have taken credit for the steady climate of the past 18 years and cited the Prius and wind turbines as the cause.

    Well, it’s really only fair–if we have to accept unemployment, inflation, and a screwed up economy as the new normal, at least we will be able to enjoy warm, sunny weather, new beachfront properties (while the old, dirty, scummy waterfronts submerge into the deep), and Alaskan shirts (just like Hawaiian shirts, but with sleds and polar bears instead of surf boards and woodies) as the new normal.

    Wheeeeee–bring it ON.

    And when it doesn’t happen, the ghost of Al Gore and his ghastly followers will claim that they were right all along, and that all of the heat caused an abundance of ice and snow in Alaska in 2072.

    Yup.

    1.) Make a prediction.
    2.) The exact opposite comes to pass.
    3.) Claim that it proves you’re right.

    This is what passes for science now.

    and a lot of the people were the same names who’re touting that “the climate” has always been static until “man made global warming” started in the 1980s and has “taken off irreversibly since”.
    Heck, if it’s irreversible anyway who cares whether I make myself comfortable now?
