:rofl:

Using the Dopplest 9000 radar, Colbert analyzes the nor'easter slamming the East Coast, and using the same logic FOX News uses to *ahem* debunk global warming citing the blizzard, he concludes that because it's dark outside, the sun's burned out!

5. And the Daily Show beat him to it:
With Samantha Bee, reporting 'from Australia,' claiming that 90 degrees 'in the winter' proved global warming; then Jason Jones reported from outside at night, claiming that the sun's going down proved global darkening.
