    Gore wrote, "The heavy snowfalls this month have been used as fodder for ridicule by those who argue that global warming is a myth, yet scientists have long pointed out that warmer global temperatures have been increasing the rate of evaporation from the oceans, putting significantly more moisture into the atmosphere -- thus causing heavier downfalls of both rain and snow in particular regions, including the Northeastern United States."



    It's an interesting theory, but where are the facts?

    LOL!

    Downpours, heavy snowfalls, and flooding


    A warmer climate will bring an increase in precipitation worldwide, especially during winter and in mid- to high latitudes, according to climate model projections. In addition, more precipitation is expected to fall in downpours and heavy snowstorms leading to increased flooding and damages. The area of the U.S. affected by extreme rainfall has increased significantly since 1910. Heavy rainfalls have also increased in Japan, the former Soviet Union, China, and Australia. As climate change increases the risk of flooding, human changes in land use and land cover can also contribute to the growing risk of flooding.


    Hotspot Selection Criteria: Observed events in this category are consistent with the projections for a more intense hydrologic cycle as outlined by the IPCC (2001), including more winter precipitation at mid to high latitudes and a greater portion of precipitation from heavy downpours. They are considered examples of events that would become more frequent and/or more widespread with continued global warming. For the rainfall events we confirmed that the region has been experiencing either an increase in heavy precipitation or an increase in annual precipitation, using journal articles or Annex A of the IPCC Regional Impacts report (IPCC, 1998). For flooding, we did not include events for which other factors (e.g., land clearing or wetland filling) were clearly major contributors, such as the summer 1998 flooding in the Yangtze Valley in China.

    Harbingers of Global Warming

    Things are proceeding as predicted.

    Interesting, the warming deniers have joined up with the Creationists.

    Cordelia For Lear: The Lie of Evolution

    The Lie of Evolution
    The Evidence Against Evolution
    by Heinz Lycklama, Ph.D.



    The Theory of Evolution is widely regarded as a “fact” in the secular scientific
    community. However, it can be shown that Evolution cannot even be regarded as a
    theory because it is not testable or falsifiable. Darwin proposed his theory of evolution
    based on his observations and analysis at a time when he did not have the powerful
    scientific instruments that we have today. For example biologists can use the electronic microscope to examine the structure of a living cell today. In the 150 years since the publication of Darwin’s book on The Origin of Species, scientists have been able to use modern scientific instruments to learn about how living organisms function

    Heres the poop s0n..................

    Its called "weather" to most Americans...........which is the only thing that matters when it comes right down to it. But knock yourself out Rocks.............posting up these "science" links. Except for the nether-regions of the internet like this site, the majority laughs at the "science" because most people dont have OCD about weather stuff and most people these days dont like to look like a moron like the alarmists do. You might as well be running down the middle of main street in your bithday suit shaking a bananna at people!!!:funnyface: LOL.........by the end of this year, the Al Gore film is being banned in classrooms in England. Wake up and smell the maple nut crunch!!!

    Its 2010 s0n.............the worm has turned politically on this issue. Every single poll shows with 100% certainty that people dont want to pay an extra $1,500/month on electricity by 2013 based upon a hail mary pass guess!!!:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    I believe Al Gore is a whopper. I definitely see a resemblance.

    Algore is mr Carbon hoofprint.

    listening to Algore talk about the environment is like listening to Paris Hilton talking about sexual and substance abstinence.

    At first glance, I thought the thread title said "Gore Eats Another Whopper", and I'm like, so what else is new? Doesn't he account for at least 10% of Burger King's gross revenue in Tennessee (much like he uses about 10% of the energy in that state as well)?

    But it was colder than usual at my house this winter so therefore it is conclusive. Globull warming is a myth spread by those anti oil types.

    Record warm January global temperature, according to Dr. Spencer.

    Now where do you think that February will rank?
