Just three weeks ago, the cartoon bluebirds that flutter around Alec Baldwin’s head were working overtime, as the actor was freaking outÃ‚Â because it was 72 degrees in Central Park in early January.
Alec was going bonkers in thinking it wasÃ‚Â a clear sign ofÃ‚Â end of the world. You’d have thought it was the second coming of Barry Goldwater. “No December snowfall in New York for the first time since 1877,” was a sign of man-made climate change, according to Baldwin. HeÃ‚Â convenientlyÃ‚Â didn’t bother to explore why there was noÃ‚Â snowfall in December of 1877, because itÃ‚Â certainly wasn’t due to our SUV’s, HalliburtonÃ‚Â and Bush. (or… was it?)
Today, New York City has set a record for the lowest temperatureÃ‚Â ever recorded. I haven’t heard from Alec yet questioning himself on whether or not he might have over-reacted three weeks ago, but I’ll keep an eye on the Huffington Post, just in case.
“Alec to mother ship, Alec to mother ship. Can’tÃ‚Â comprehend temperature changes. Please advise. Over.”
