Despite the Cold, Global Warming Attacks French Truffles

Global warmer hoaxers are running low on problems to blame on the nonexistent global warming crisis. Now USA Today would have us believe it is depriving Frenchmen of their beloved truffles:

Farmers say production is down by 50-75% this winter season and they blame global warming, warning that if thermometers keep rising — as many scientists predict they could — France's black truffle will one day be just a memory.

Ignoring the fact that a drought in the 1960s cut the truffle harvest in half, truffle-snuffler Jean Montesano seems to swallow the notion that the climate was always stable until Al Gore discovered global warming:

Climate change has got the seasons out of whack, it's hotter than it used to be and it rains lots less. I want my grandson to take over, but if things continue like this, who knows if there will be anything left.

Meanwhile, in the real world, snow over North America and much of Asia is at its highest level since 1966. Many American cities suffered record cold this winter. China has endured its most brutal winter in a century. The real estate market in Ontario and Quebec has literally frozen due to the cold. Toronto received more snow in the first two weeks of February than the previous record for the entire month. Arctic Sea ice is 10–20 cm thicker than last year.

Based on their study of solar activity, Oleg Sorokhtin of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and Kenneth Tapping of Canada's National Research Council predict that we could be in for a prolonged period of severe cold. Soon USA Today reporters may be climbing atop igloos to yell about how global warming is curdling the truffles.

He believes in global warming; maybe he'll believe the dried monkey dropping he's snuffling is a truffle.

On tips from mega.

God I hate the French. The ultimate in hedonism. Seeking personal pleasure while the world crumbles around them.

Rot in hell you corrupt pieces of frog shit.

You would think that all of the nightly car bonfires set by the Muzzie Youth around Paris would provide enough heat for the fungi. No?

Oh, nobody reports on the nightly riots anymore, though they go on, and on, and on........

"Rot in hell you corrupt pieces of frog shit."

More unfounded hatred aimed at an entire nation. America's allies no less. But then, as you always say, the right isn't full of hatred, right?

"The ultimate in hedonism. Seeking personal pleasure while the world crumbles around them."

Are you sure you are not describing the mainstream American population. If the shoe fits...

Um, it's been a VERY long time since France has been an ally of the U.S.
That being said, I think Doug's comment was definitely uncalled- for.

Oh dear, there's truffle trouble in France!
Well, over here in the states, we'll always have okra! Yum!

That's true, even in WWII, our alliance was "iffy" at best. The first people the US fought when we landed in North Africa was THE FRENCH!

I second that. They are now realising the mistakes they made and France (once again) needs help from the free countrys.

When the new French President came into office, a very warm gesture of friendship with the US was made. He made it clear he liked the US and wanted good relations between our countries. I haven't heard much since then, but with the Muzzie invasion going full force in Europe right now (ie the rioting in Paris), he might be kind of busy. I believe it's a new administration over there across the pond, so we should give them a break. JMHO. We don't need more enemies in the world.
