Global warming anyone?

Postby alpha » Tue Nov 18, 11:02 pm

How chilly is it in your neighborhood? CNN's reporting that there were freezing temps in all fifty states Tuesday morning and 50.1% snow coverage, which isn't hard to do, if Alaska's loaded with snow.

http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/18/us/cold-t ... ?hpt=hp_t1

Many of our politicians touting global warming, with weather like we've been getting the past few years, reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode of the woman living in a world where the earth is off course and revolving toward the sun and everyone is roasting a bit more each day, then she awakes from her nightmare only to find the earth is off course the other way.

Also an article smokedpeppers posted else wheres. Can't prove any of the author's science, nor any of the science he's railing against, but an interesting piece nonetheless.

I have my doubts whether our weather scientists are up to the task of calling our climate and future climate accurately.

This is, indeed, the result of global warming or, for those who don't get it..."climate change".

My sister sent me some awesome photos of the reindeer ranch that she works at ...4' of powdery snow...the livestock are very happy! (south of Buffalo, NY)

isn't this arctic wobble the result of the storm that ravaged japan/aleutians?

Climate change is for when it's freezing cold and global warming for when it's too hot, yes i get it. Even Thomas Jefferson was lamenting global warming during the eighteenth century.

Careful what you wish for, according to that report above some area near buffalo got 70 inches, with more predicted for tonight and Wednesday into Thursday night too. All of it, i believe, from lake effect.

Alpha…global warming was an unfortunate title to have given th situation we are facing. It SHOULD HAVE ALWAYS been called Climate Change. With extreme warming will come extreme cold, it is how the planet works..you know that.

Seven ft of snow in some neighborhoods. I 90 looks like this.

On Monday we were outside of Erie on I-90 and heading towards Buffalo for a business meeting and then to Sudbury, Ontario on Tuesday for more business meetings... the snow was beginning to come down hard by 1PM and after checking the weather reports decided to head back to Pittsburgh. Glad we did...

Bloody Hell. This is a city on the same parallel as Provence.

I'm assuming this isn't normal for November?

Its not unusual for lake effect to occur frequently until the lakes freeze over usually around January. Its beautiful if you're not stuck in it.

Watch this to the end...and then some. The "thunder snowstorm" was in my home town.

I was there in 2001 when they got 89" of snow in 72 hours. Sorta had fun...my brother-in-law has snow machines.

No Alpha, one does not mean "too hot" and the other "too cold" Global warming and Climate change mean exactly the same thing...unusual (possibly terminal) changes in weather patterns across the globe.

per science, this has been happening for eons, weather patterns change
core samples from the arctic indicate what is now frozen was lush, same
in chili/argentina drills . to believe the status quo is constant is fickle and
puts that greek dude on front street .

attached link could help sort this out .

Trashman talking out of his ass again. This is a link the EPA uses to educate children on the subject.

---------------------

Is climate change the same thing as global warming?

No. “Global warmingâ€￾ refers to an increase in the average temperature near the Earth's surface. “Climate changeâ€￾ refers to the broader set of changes that go along with global warming, including changes in weather patterns, the oceans, ice and snow, and ecosystems. Most experts now use the term “climate changeâ€￾ because it gives a more complete picture of the changes that are happening around the world.

Climate change is the canary in the coal mine signifying western civilization has grown too rich. We expend energy worrying whether the earth is going to warm by a few degrees over the next century, while knowing the reality is we can do fuck all about it, whether man made or not. We have become so rich that we now go out of our way to look for things to concern us rather than focusing our resources on Aids, Cancer research, Ebola vaccines, ISIS, the Meth epidemic, the fact that we are nearly 20 trillion dollars in debt or any of the immediate issues that could destroy us but are solvable. Perspective is a gift.

"With extreme warming will come extreme cold".

How do you know this?

You must get your "science" from Hollywood.

This is the plot line for the film "The Day After tomorrow".

When the reality of the cold proves the BS of global warming wrong, just change the message.

thanks Bo!

Folks can argue all they want - The Climate is changing and is changing rapidly.

Many say it is man made - others think not. Doesn't really matter. IT IS changing and we have to change too. Check out the map of ground water depletion. The inhabitants of this planet are gonna have a tuff time holding on to their same old same old.

Oh and some dumbass said something about not understanding how extremes in temperature are connected -- Go back to school and study air currents before you open your mouth again.

Anyone who's over 50 knows the truth about 'climate change!'

It's definitely changed since I was a kid!

Nobody disputes the climate is changing.

Why the climate is changing is an entirely different discussion.
Shut up yourself.

There is something wrong with you. Heaven forbid I disagree with your poorly formed and barely supported opinions.

No dispute here Des.

I remember large snowstorms, drifts 6 feet high, lakes and ponds frozen solid from early December until April. Maybe this is just cyclical?
