We would be entering an ice age, except for the fact that we are dumping CO2 in the atmosphere. This would make the earth heat out of control, except that we are dumping particulates into the atmosphere, which make it cooler. The Ozone hole – which we created – simultaneously warms and cools the planet.
In other words, burning coal is saving us from a frozen, fiery death. All the excess heat manifests itself as record cold and snow.
It is all very easy to understand – if you work at a university and smoke enough weed.
