Bundle Up, It’s Global Warming
THE earth continues to get warmer, yet it’s feeling a lot colder outside. Over the past few weeks, subzero temperatures in Poland claimed 66 lives; snow arrived in Seattle well before the winter solstice, and fell heavily enough in Minneapolis to make the roof of the Metrodome collapse; and last week blizzards closed Europe’s busiest airports in London and Frankfurt for days, stranding holiday travelers. The snow and record cold have invaded the Eastern United States, with more bad weather predicted.
All of this cold was met with perfect comic timing by the release of a World Meteorological Organization report showing that 2010 will probably be among the three warmest years on record, and 2001 through 2010 the warmest decade on record.
How can we reconcile this? The not-so-obvious short answer is that the overall warming of the atmosphere is actually creating cold-weather extremes. Last winter, too, was exceptionally snowy and cold across the Eastern United States and Eurasia, as were seven of the previous nine winters.
Typical Libearl bass ackwards logic. Black is white and white is black. The ends justify the means.
They won't quit trying to lie and decieve until they've got everyone under their control.
Lets see now the globe is getting warmer per Algore and this is causing colder winters?
Can you imagine what would happen if the globe was getting colder?
Using Algore's logic winters would be getting warmer.
Temperature is temperature.
Snow is snow.
There is a relationship, but snow is not an indication of unsophisticated "hotter or colder" climate trend forecasting.
The facts are:
a. The earth's climate has been trending warmer for a short time frame of 15,000 years.
b. The past 100 years have been an atypically calm weather period. We should expect weather volatility to increase back to norms or higher.
c. Weather volatility should not be confused with climate trends.
d. Since most all of the world's weather data is 100 years old or less, weather volatility will, WILL, be poltiically used to trump science with hot air politics.
Most people believe that a tomato is a vegetable - because the Supreme Court agreed with a President. Al Gore is not a "new breed" of politician - just another person who steps on people for taxation purposes.
What is the "vegetable" for the State of New Jersey? A fruit - the tomato.
" it does tend to snow in Chicago. Is your point that it is changing?
Well so are tax rates."
Can never go wrong Canu by arguing "change". Tough to argue against "change" when history has proven same.
No wonder the green(red) movement had to accept the fact that the winters were getting colder which went counter their global warming scenario.
"Maybe the combo will bring Alpha back to Chi town"
As for Alfa leaving Pheonix, forget about it!
Deep Freeze Gripping Midwest, Aiming for Northeast
Coldest air of the winter so far has arrived over the northern Plains and Midwest and will cause temperatures to plummet in the Northeast in the wake of today's disruptive snowstorm.
The wave of arctic air may lead to frozen pipes in some households and eventually broken water mains in some communities.
Furnaces and heaters will be working hard in coming days, and you will get the bill for it later in the month.
Actual temperatures may do no better than the single digits for highs today in Chicago and Milwaukee.
There is plenty more cold coming.
AccuWeather.com's Long Range Weather Pattern Expert Joe Bastardi said, "The period from January 20 to February 10 will bring the coldest weather since 2007 during the same period.
The Great Lakes will modify the air slightly so that temperatures will manage to climb into the teens around Detroit today through the weekend.
However, northern New England will make up for its lack of nasty cold so far this winter. Temperatures at Burlington, Vt., and Caribou, Maine, will struggle to reach zero degrees for a high Sunday.
Even a swath from the central Plains to the Ohio Valley, southern New England and northern mid-Atlantic will have episodes of nasty cold.
From St. Louis to Cincinnati, the coldest day will be today, with highs mainly in the teens, followed by a modest recovery Saturday and Sunday.
Over the central Appalachians from Pittsburgh to Scranton, Pa. and Binghamton, N.Y., both days of the weekend will be bitterly cold with highs in the single digits and teens, depending on your elevation.
For coastal areas of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast from Baltimore/Washington to Philadelphia, New York City and Boston, expect three days of January's finest cold. Highs will range from the teens in the north to the 20s in the south.
The coldest days and nights will occur with relatively light wind. However, as the cold air first sweeps in from west to east, AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will be 15 to 30 degrees lower than the actual temperature. After the arctic cold has settled in, even a slight breeze will be painful.
By the way, as cold as it will be by day, this air mass will produce temperatures of minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit from the Upper Midwest to northern New England at night. A number of locations may even get colder than that under clear skies and calm conditions.
Temperatures in International Falls, Minn., plummeted to minus 44 degrees early this morning. That broke the day's record low of minus 41 degrees from 1954.
No wonder TPTB had to change their mantra from MAN MADE GLOBAL WARMING to MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE.
When it becomes obvious that you're wrong you must change the debate topic in order to keep fooling the sheeple.
duckie, there you go again avoiding questions and speaking in tongues! I dont how the hell you have made it this far in life. But, i do know one thing, you're incapable of any understanding of anyone else's opinion, due to you myopic way of seeing. That is fine, maybe in time you might come to see the other side of arguments, until that time I wish you luck in your "the sky is falling" syndrome. Although, personally... I have my doubts about your theory.
Again, see you this summer.
PS. The sky is not falling.
QWAK,georgetheni...,IGNORENCE may seem BLISSFULL to YOU, but not to ME! :)
BTW:I live out in the country -- it is GRAY cold and myserable out there, BUT just like you said -- the COWS are as HAPPY as COWS tend to be -- and I guess they are smiling as they eat grass too! ;)
georgetheni...,You are "TOO big for your BRITCHES!" and you are too young to have any praticle life experiences to base YOUR judgments (?) on and don't actualy understand MONEY and how and why it works! :(
Perhaps in another 30 years YOU will be able to percieve -- UNCOMMON WISDOM and tell the diference from COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS!
BTW: Time is an ILUSION caused by GRAVITY -- it is NOT FIXED or CONSTENT -- except when percieved from inside the GRAVITY WELL! Your MIND is not inhibited by GRAVITY so can -- IF trained properly -- function out side the LIMITS you accept as FIXED and constent! :)
That was PROVED befor you were born -- back in the 60s!
Duck, you stated "I believe we have about (?) 3 months (hopfully) befor it HITS the FAN and it becomes SO obvious that the system has FAILED no one will trust in it any longer."
Does your stated 3 months not imply some kind of time period. It's also actually fairly easy to calculate a beginning and an end to your 3 months. Let me explain. You take the date that you posted your trashed, count forward 90 days on any standard calender. And there you have it, a countdown is born.
I want you to think really hard duckie, really concentrate. Please. Take a good afternoon, walk out of your compound to the nearest signs of life. Not, your weekly crazy meeting. I mean a place with human activity, a supermarket, subway station, airport, any of these will do. And just people watch for a few minutes. As you do this, ask yourself... "What do these people have that I don't?", "Why do they seem so preoccupied with their daily lives?", "Why is there no rioting?", "The people passing me have smiles on their faces, why?" As you ask yourself these questions, I want you to look very deeply into that mallard brain of yours and ask yourself, could I have spent the last 10 years of my life doing something more constructive with my time? Ponder this. Please don't rush to respond to my questions. There will be time for this later. Wonder why, what if...etc. Question yourself as to why you call yourself the duck, on yahoo.com, and why you feel the need to justify your insecurities through false prophecies. And, if at the end of you self-analyzing you have a good answer, I would be happy to here it.
Please don't respond with anything related gold, the end of the world, or about buying food stamps. I just want to know about your reasons. Additionally, don't tell me how you want others to be saved, because god knows our KO board has very few new members.
Best of luck in your soul searching journey.
QWAK,georgetheni...,HUMmmmmmmmmmm LOL -- IF you are 30 years old? Then I have been RIGHT about GOLD and SILVER and MONEY for more than 1/3ed of your LIFE! :)
I will stand on MY record -- what does YOUR RECORD look like? HUMmmmmmmmmmmmm
You may not like how I spell things BUT the RESULTS are all that count any way! :)
There is NO count down except in your MIND -- with spring will come municipal bond defaults and Soveron Debt defaults -- a new wave of comercial RE defaults too -- Home prices will continue to go down, along with very fiew new jobs and the lose of UNEMPLOYMENT of the many who have been out of work over 2 years already! :(
It is NOT the END of the WORLD --- but things are going to change drasticly starting this spring and continuing in the same direction and trend in to the future for years to come. :(
