The cold weather the East Coast is currently experiencing led Jon Stewart to (satirically) come to the following conclusion on “The Daily Show” on Wednesday night: “Global warming is a total hoax. And I’ll tell you how I know. Because it’s cold, today, where I live. That’s jus’ science.”

Before you knock Stewart’s “logic,” you should know that numerous Republicans and conservative pundits have already made that same claim–except they were serious when they challenged climate change.
