Blogging never ceases to amaze me. I started this blog simply as a daily journal of thoughts, which others could read if they cared to. Just for fun. So I am a bit surprised, and of course delighted, when a syndicated columnist like Cal Thomas at the Washington Examiner makes use of my stuff.
I was just checking out Marc Morano’s Climate Depot and happened to run across Cal’s piece there.
Cal Thomas, an evil conservative, quotes (using my exact words in bold, but I don’t have anything against that):
The German online news magazine Focus recently carried a story, “Warm Times Will Soon Be Over!” Commenting on the “new NASA high temperature record,” which may be set, the magazine blames it on El Nino.
Meteorologists, like Joe D’Aleo of the Weather Channel, are publicly distancing themselves from the false doctrine of global warming. D’Aleo says, “We’ll have La Nina conditions before the summer is over, and it will intensify further through the fall and winter. Thus we’ll have cooler temperatures for the next couple of years.”
These are the exact words, which I translated from the original German, I used in my post here.
My 6th grade English teacher, Mrs. Emma Brown at the Barton Academy, would be proud, I think. The best I could do in her class was a C+.
Just yesterday I wrote that I’d continue to focus on writing about stories that readers might otherwise not hear about. Well, I think it’s safe to say that at least some of us now have heard about the FOCUS story.
