Fox reporter says dumbest thing ever about global warming

(via C&L)

Fox Business reporter Tracy Byrnes says that climate change is overblown because the temperature of the Earth "basically hasn't changed much since the Ice Age."



Seriously, the temperature hasn't changed much since the ice age. The freakin Ice Age! Which is why much of North America is still covered by glaciers. And why Wooly Mammoth burgers are one of our most popular foods.

 Does this idiot really not understand what "Ice Age" means?

You're right, that comment sounds pretty wacky.

But it forces the question, what was the temperature of the earth at the end of the last ice age anyway?

So if we don't know what the temp actually was back then, her comment suddenly doesn't sound so wacky after all. Maybe she's right.

Temperatures in Antarctica were around 50°F cooler than in modern times when the most recent Ice Age peaked about 20,000 years ago, according to Paleoceanography.
