    Wait, let me guess. You think global warming should just be a "it's warmer, therefore there's less snow" sort of simplistic weather patterns, right?

    You're also doing the "it's snowing here, therefore there's no global warming" which has got to be the densest argument yet.

    Do all American conservatives and right wingers suffer from Dunning Kruger? Seems so. 'In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people of low ability have illusory superiority and mistakenly assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is.'

    'Killer cognitive bias, air pollution and climate change.'

    Another thread headed by a lie. Edmonton is not the whole of Canada. Ice age now? That crap site is strictly looney tunes.

    As usual you ignored what the IPCC said back in 2001, when they projected LESS snow and more Rain/Freezing rain into the future. They are wrong as it has become colder and snowier instead.

    That is why you are seeing these increasing early/unusual snow and cold reports, to show that the IPCC has blown their AGW based modeling scenarios.

    So if they predict in the future it'll get hotter, it must be hotter every year, otherwise they're wrong?

    Understanding the impact of global warming is very difficult. Things happen that might be unexpected. This doesn't mean that global warming isn't happen.

    Changing of weather patterns can have winds coming from abnormal directions at abnormal times. So, it can be colder in one place, while in another place it's hotter.

    The point about "it's cold here, therefore there's no global warming" must have gone right over your head.

    The point remains that using the AGW conjecture made future projections that are 100% wrong means they are WRONG! It is amusing you seem to be trying excuse away their many failures now, when in the early days warmists considered the IPCC papers as holy that must be revered.

    The RATE of warming remains very similar to previous warming rates back to the 1800's, there is nothing unusual about it. The world was a LOT warmer during the Roman, Minoan and Holocene Optimism, than now.

    I'm not making excuses. I just understand what prediction means as a term.

    You seem to be trying to say "they got it wrong, therefore there's no global warming" which is complete nonsense.
