A recently published study suggests that just because something is one way in the United States of America, it is not necessarily happening that way in other parts of the planet. After years of collecting and comparing data from all over the world, scientists found that things are indeed different elsewhere. In one recent example, it was discovered that while the US has been experiencing record low temperatures and even snow in southern states like Georgia and South Carolina, other countries, like Australia, are experiencing record highs. Despite several “think tanks” like Sarah Palin suggesting that the cold our continent is experiencing is proof that Global Warming is a hoax, the people in the southern hemisphere suffering through triple-digit heat and wildfires might suggest that the “climate” is experiencing some kind of “change” which might have far reaching effects other than everything heating evenly. The data also seems to indicate that just because America is cold, that other parts of the world might have different weather.
In fact, the powerful typhoon that hit the Philippines just last year and the increased intensity and frequency of storms and fires around the planet have pointed towards an overall shift in weather patterns and generalized heating the world over, which contradicts the “It’s cold as fuck in Texas right now, so the world must not be heating up” evidence that has gripped much of the conservative portion of the American population. In fact, the study suggests that actual science paints a very different picture than the “my observation today negates decades of evidence” method used by many Americans.
One of the scientists responsible for the study stated “weird as it may seem, smug self assurance seems to lose to actual proof every time. We’ve tested and peer reviewed the evidence hundreds of times, and every time it turns out that ‘common sense’ loses to ‘reality’ every time. Despite our attempts to force ‘It’s -20 in Montana, global warming is a myth’ the models still showed that Australia was on fire, the seas are warming and rising, and California is experiencing its worst drought in history. We even included the ‘Satan is torturing the homos’ variable and it STILL came out that the world is getting warmer, despite most of middle and north America’s shitty shitty weather.”
While the findings are fascinating, it appears that many Americans still seem convinced that their own convictions are more prudent than information collected using the scientific method and also assume that any issues Australia are experiencing is just the earth/God finally trying to rid the world of the island continent’s terrifying native fauna.
