There is evidence connecting sea-ice loss to the more severe and extreme weather patterns in Europe and North America....It seems to me that climate destabilization has only just begun. As it gets dramatically worse over the coming decades, capitalist class media directors will have their hands full trying to manage the widespread concern among their subject populations.
However, many people still are not convinced. Recently someone asked me, "If global warming is real then why is it cold?". I really tried hard to be patient with this person and explained briefly that what we are seeing is destabilization of the climate while global average temperatures keep climbing. During my explanation I noticed her rolling her eyes rather contemptuously and I realized that she had been thoroughly indoctrinated by media sources which included Fox News. What I'd like to do is send her a link to this Daily Show segment, but she might feel that I was ridiculing her--and I might be.
