If it's 80 degrees in mid-October then global warming is true, right?

Is it just me? Sometimes I just feel that progressives, liberals, the left in general just really suck at memes, propaganda, or messaging. Take this October warm spell for example. Just two weeks before Halloween, and it’s hitting 80 degrees, in NY. It hit 100 degrees in Dodge City, KS today. Warm temperature records are breaking throughout the country. So where are all the snarky tweets, posts, comments from liberals about how “Global Warming must be true!”. Yet you can bet your bottom dollar that the first big snowfall we have this winter in January or February or earlier will bring out all the right wing trolls exclaiming how Global Warming is a hoax! Just look at all the snow and cold temperatures! Here we have a big opportunity, a gift, to promote the meme that this Global Warming thing, is well, a thing. Yet, there’s nothing. So, we wonder why so many people believe right wing myths. It’s partly because we fail to take advantage of opportunities like this. We need to do better at beating the right at their own game to spread the truth more effectively.

2. Until it is 20 below in January

Then deniers will proclaim global warming a hoax.

Whoever first called it global warming created the ideal argument for the ignorant.

3. People talk about climate change as if it were a matter of Opinion.

But in the words of "The Rock". "It doesn't matter what you think"!
