Exactly 20 years ago, the East Coast was hit by a huge blizzard similar to what is forecast this weekend. Climate experts immediately blamed it on global warming.
Four years later, experts said that children just won’t know what snow is.
Monday 20 March 2000
the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.
Five years later the IPCC said that global warming will reduce cold and heavy snowstorms.

Recognizing health concerns in wind energy development a key recommendation in new study
As wind energy development blossoms in Canada and around the world, opposition at the community level is challenging the viability of the industry. A new study with research from the University of Waterloo, published in Nature Energy, identifies four major factors leading to disputes over wind farms, and offers recommendations on avoiding disagreements.
The research project focuses on the province of Ontario. It lists socially mediated health concerns, distribution of financial benefits, lack of meaningful engagement and failure to treat landscape concerns seriously, as the core stumbling blocks to a community’s acceptance of wind energy development.
“There has been debate over whether reported negative health outcomes in nearby residents are valid” says Tanya Christidis, a PhD researcher at Waterloo’s School of Planning, who contributed to the study by looking specifically at the health…

Remember those tarballs that washed ashore during Isaac – that’s nothing compared to Natural oil pollution
I’m sure you’ve seen the picture of tarballs on the beach splashed all over the MSM after hurricane Isaac came ashore in Louisiana. The left leaning website Think Progress (parent of Joe Romm’s Climate Progress) framed it this way:
A Greenpeace research team took samples from beaches along the Alabama coast on September 2, including from an area with hundreds of tar balls in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge.
Hundreds of tar balls on the beach at Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, Alabama on September 2, 2012
Tests run by Louisiana State University for state wildlife officials confirmed that oil found on Elmer’s Island and Grand Isle matched the biological fingerprint of the hundreds of millions of gallons of oil that spewed from BP’s Macondo well.

I told them they’d get “payback”. 🙂
For those that were complaining about the warm December weather: “Are you happy now?”
Btw, someone should check to see if Al Gore was on the East coast recently.
Guest essay by Eric Worrall
Remember all the recent press about the mild winter, how the bears were waking up early, flowers blooming in December, all a sign of the coming global warming apocalypse?
Now that winter has turned cold and snowy, this is also being seen in some quarters, as irrefutable proof of our unnatural tampering with the balance of nature.
Sorry! Winter Storm Jonas doesn’t make climate change a liberal hoax
Good news, folks! It turns out that climate change is a big ol’ liberal hoax after all. Need proof? Just look out your window: If you’re anywhere east of Tupelo, you’re probably seeing a bunch of white stuff falling from the sky, compliments of Winter Storm Jonas. We call that “snow,” and it proves once and for all that “global warming” is a conspiracy dreamed up by known communist Al Gore to bring down the world economy…

The media is full of stories about 2015 being the hottest year ever.
Tweeter Tom Nelson found out that’s a farce! He tweeted:
@NOAA bombshell: Earth COOLED 3.83F from 1997’s 62.45F to 2015’s 58.62F”
along with these two images showing the stated temps of 2015….and those from the NOAA archive of 1997….
Friends of Science Society’s resident scientific adviser Norm Kalmanovitch, P. Geoph. explains a few other things about ‘hottest year on record…”
Climate change is not about a single year, but about a pattern of climate over years and decades. Here’s what Norm had to say on the topic:
The issue is called “climate change” and climate is the long term weather so whether or not 2015 was the warmest year is irrelevant to claims of catastrophic global warming being caused by CO2 emissions. El Niño conditions occurred in 1998, 2010 and 2015…

University of South Florida and international scientists find influx of freshwater could disrupt the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, an important component of global ocean circulation
TAMPA, Fla. (Jan. 22, 2016) – Scientists from the University of South Florida, along with colleagues in Canada and the Netherlands, have determined that the influx of fresh water from the Greenland ice sheet is “freshening” the North Atlantic Ocean and could disrupt the Atlantic Meridional…
