With the recent cold snap impacting much of the United States, it was only a matter of time before Fox News used the record-lows to champion the demise of global warming; a rallying cry they've unsuccessfully for years attempted to back up using poor science, knee-jerk reactions, and gut feelings.
Thankfully, Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" returned from the holidays just in time to once again give it to the nation's leading network for the misinformed.
The highlight, beyond a cameo by Donald Trump once again declaring global warming "a hoax," was truly Fox News’ Eric Bolling - who declared climate change a giant money-making scheme.
"I gotta say, I think these scientists are laughing from their lavish laboratories, and their vacations up at the arctic, and their nice boats that are well-equipped," he declared.
Said Stewart in response: "Yea, that's the dream, man. I remember thinking - s**t when I get older, I'm going to take one of those Arctic research cruises. And monitor s**t, because all the ladies be like 'Damn, your readings are so accurate!'"
