Tale of Two Poles

According to Pelosi, after her trip to Greenland, she is now completely convinced of climate change. Well, maybe she wouldn't be sure if she had visited Antarctica instead.

And of course she's doing all this propagandizing using American Tax Dollars.

After Greenland she made a point to go to Germany and once again try and divide our allies and insert herself into U.S. Foreign Policy where she has no business.

Did someone not give her the memo that climate change is a natural phenomenon?

Oh, and Greenland has in past geologic history been green and ice-free. This was waaaay before al gore invented the internet...

"Between A.D. 1800 and 1300, ice cores tell us that the climate in Greenland was relatively mild, simiar to Greenland's weather today or even slightly warmer. Those mild centuries are termed the Medieval Warm Period. Thus, the Norse reached Greenland during a period good for growing hay and pasturing animals... Around 1300, though, the climate in the North Atlantic began to get cooler and more variable from year to year, ushering in a cold period termed the Little Ice Age that lasted into the 1800s. By around 1420, the Little Ice Age was in full swing, and the increased summer drift ice between Greenland, Iceland, and Norway ended ship communication between the Greenland Norse and the outside world."
