The climate fanatics at The Washington Post treated an old oxymoronic article claiming that man-made global warming causing more Alaska blizzards as front-page news.

The Post took its Dec. 16, 2023, eco-propaganda headlined, “As Alaska’s climate gets wetter, snowstorms put the homeless in peril,” and plastered it onto the front page of the Jan. 8 print edition of the newspaper. Yes, you read that right. The newspaper effectively just broke old news. Apparently, regurgitating weeks-old agitprop was more important to the newspaper than the recent disturbing news that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin hid his hospitalization for days without DOD officials or President Joe Biden knowing about it. Instead, The Post pushed the controversy to page A3 of The Post’s print edition. Talk about NOT getting one’s priorities straight.

The Alaska piece doom-mongered over the “recent onslaught of extreme precipitation,” which so-called climate scientists reportedly “predict will worsen as the atmosphere warms.” Strikingly, the leftist media writ large can’t get their stories straight and are trying to have their cake and eat it too. Reuters, for example, published another story around the same time as The Post’s articleclaiming “global warming” led to no snow in Canada. Huh? So either global warming either causes too much snow or no snow at all. Which one is it? Even The New York Times recently published an op-ed by contributing Opinion writer Elizabeth Spiers predicting “The End of Snow” because of climate change.

As founder Steve Milloy told MRC Business, any problem, natural phenomenon or societal ill can somehow be blamed on climate change if climate activists butcher common sense hard enough. “The global warming narrative has been set up so that all problems – whether environmental, social and/or geopolitical – can be blamed on fossil fuel use. This is not science. Just politics,” Milloy rebuked. “So global warming is now about fretting cold weather and snow in Alaska?”
