    Where did all the right-wing talk about heavy snowfall proving that there's no global warming go?

    It's been awfully quiet on that front lately, hasn't it?

    Now, I'm not one to say a few abnormally hot weeks in early spring are absolute proof of Global Warming...

    ...But I wonder if an official apology from the James Inholfe crowd will be forthcoming, after their comments about Al Gore being a "criminal" due to the fact that it snowed a lot this winter?

    I won't hold my breath.

    Its going to be back down to the 60s by thursday/friday. This happens every spring. just like we get that hot patch in September/October.

    Both sides seem to like pointing to the weather when it suits them.

    I'm still waiting for one repeatable laboratory experiment that can demonstrate the instantaneous, cataclysmic changes that occur when you increase CO2 from 280 to 500PPM.

    It gets cold, it's gets warm. There you have it.

    And that's how the world works.

    Don't hold your breath Vast, Cruiser Skank has already shown you what their polite response would be.

    Interestingly enough, they only looked at Washington DC and bitched about the snow to disprove global warming, yet they completely ignored the fact that Vancouver's Winter Olympics was having spring in the middle of winter.

    Shit.........they had to truck in snow for crying out loud!

    Hot Weather Convinces Media of Climate Change; Cold Weather Ignored
    From 2003 heat wave that killed thousands, to melting Peruvian glaciers the news media find examples of global warming.

    The news media constantly misuse extreme weather examples to generate fear of global warming, but when record cold or record snow sets in journalists don’t mention the possibility of global cooling trends. While climatologists would say weather isn’t necessarily an indication of climate, it has been in the media, but only when the weather could be spun as part of global warming.



    In Iowa, temperatures are 30 degrees below normal according to the Des Moines Register. That’s a near-record low. Beijing is facing the coldest temperatures in decades according to Australia’s The Age.

    Sammy Stinkfinger, I'm still waiting for one repeatable laboratory experiment that can demonstrate the instantaneous, cataclysmic changes that occur when you increase CO2 from 280 to 500PPM.

    Just one experiment that duplicates "ManMade" Global Warming.

    Can ya do that?
