“I just shoveled 6 inches of global warming off my driveway”

Many people doubt “global warming” after a big or a late snowfall. “I just shoveled X inches of global warming off my driveway/sidewalk” is a popular trope.

“Having just shoveled 15 or more inches of “global warming” off my sidewalk...” was printed in the Citizens’ Voice (Wilkes-Barre, PA) on February 26, 2007. “going to bed. totally exhausted from wknd. shoveled 10+ inches of global warming off the drive” was posted on Twitter by dougworple on March 9, 2008. “shoveled 5” of global warming off my deck this am in Cleveland Hts OH (not original, I know!)” was posted on Twitter by GaryBoncella on January 28, 2009.

“I just shoveled 6 inches of global warming off my driveway” by William D. Zeranski was printed in the American Thinker on December 9, 2009. “JUST SHOVELED A FOOT AND A HALF OF GLOBAL WARMING OFF MY DRIVEWAY” was posted on Twitter by Bob Kostic on February 16, 2021.


Wikipedia: Climate change
Climate change includes both global warming driven by human emissions of greenhouse gases, and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns. Though there have been previous periods of climatic change, since the mid-20th century, humans have had unprecedented impact on Earth’s climate system and caused change on a global scale.
