It's Cold in April, So Global Warming Must Be B.S., Say Humans
It's freezing in New York--where the hell is global warming?

It's cold this morning. Not quite freezing like in New York, but it's 40 degrees. In North Texas. In late April. It's a little odd, a bit of a surprise.
Less surprising: That hordes of amateur scientists are using the temperature dip, combined with their finely honed powers of Holmesian deduction, to pick apart decades of painstaking climate research. (Just so we're clear, they're wrong.)
So if global warming is such an issue why is it effing freezing at the end of April in Texas of all places..

Hey @algore! 37 degrees in Dallas this morning. You can start that global warming thing back up whenever you finish counting your money.

Late April & 37 degrees in Dallas. Is it safe to assume that we've cured Earth of global warming?

And this one got a retweet from Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who has previously expressed global warming skepticism:
Gonna be a chilly night in central Texas! So weird for late April -- must be global warming! LMAO
