I can't think of many things better than Oklahoma becoming an uninhabitable wasteland. That is, as long as the state's neighbors enforce their borders.

I'm with you except I'm pretty sure the Finger Lakes are gonna get hit too, and damn it I love my wine country.

Oh, I don't know. I've driven through - and stayed in - Oklahoma a few times, and it wasn't so bad.

Hey! Kansas is a nice place. Granted; not much happens here. Granted that we're all about as republican as a Texan, riding in a cattle themed limo, with a shotgun in one hand and a bible in the other. Does that really mean that we get sentanced to the same fate as Oklahoma? I mean, come on; at least we have our own identity. Where as, Oklahoma is just Texas' hat.

Global Warming Lovers' techniques are reminding me of anti-abortionist legislators techniques. If it's a mild winter, it's global warming. If it's more snow, it's global warming. If global warming lowers temperatures, it's climate change. Throw everything and see what sticks to enforce your ideology. Virginia passes the vaginal ultrasound requirement before getting an abortion. Oh, we can't get away with that? OK, make it a regular ultrasound. Sure. Where are all those Katrina-level hurricanes we were promised as a result of letting global warming "happen"?

We just are realizing a public bond to bring polar bears here, if OK gets them for free, I'm gonna be pissed!

Easter Oklahoma is great! Western Oklahoma, however; not so much. It's a little like extreme south western Kansas; if you didn't know better; you'd think that some of the scenes from deliverance were shot there. Strange things happen in the panhandle; it's a little like traveling back to the 1940's.
 
2012-02-29 12:33:45 AM  
Just the thing to help rednecks conflate local weather with global climate, and 'warming' with 'change', all the while with Faux News falling all over themselves to help.

/Can see it now, first time there is a serious blizzard there, they will stand up and crow proudly about how there is no "global warming', and therefore no climate change. Even though it happens to be the perfect example of that change.

//Watched them do that when it was snowing on the beach in Rio de Janiero a few summers back, laughing about "where was the 'global warming' now hippies? Climate change is a lie!". Like snow on the beach there was a -normal- thing. farking corporate shills.
 
2012-02-29 12:35:24 AM  
damn roads in panhandle were shut down by OHP earlier yesterday because of no visibility from the high winds picking ,all the dust. as far as the polar bears go, sure why not and maybe while the legislature is at it, they can repeal our whaling law (new window)


/nothing like a polar bear rug in front of your fireplace in your sod house that is sealed up with whale blubber.

This article needs more statistics. All I know is it snowed a lot last year, and none this year. So it averages out. Beyond that, show me stats. Im sure they exist, bad article needs more info.

ontariolightning: Actually Less Arctic sea ice = less cold which = the winter we had just now


You haven't been paying much attention to Europe's winter. The stuff they are talking about in the article has been happening on the other side of the globe. Average global temperature this January was supposedly the same as last January, but NA has been much warmer while Europe was much colder. Just because the average stays the same does not mean the variance remains the same, and it is the variance that really hurts the economy and our ability to sustain our lifestyles.

If this could put a dent in the 70+ days of 100+ Fahrenheit we had in my part of Texas last year, I might be inclined to get a bottle of Freon and spray it straight up into the atmosphere. Some of you would have to deal with the backlash up north, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice.

Hmmm, maybe I could share a troll list with you, had him tagged for a while although maybe he wasn't a climate troll they all go there eventually.
/No my list is mine.

Although I have to say who can't figure out that if you have an air mass that was cooled to x and heat it to y it will expand. Granted on a global level it gets truly complex ,what with oscillating wind patterns and a billion other factors.

If it gets warm. Global Warming. Pay up.

If it gets cold. Global Warming. Pay up.

If it stays the same. Global Warming. pay up.


Neat how that works, isn't it?

Polar Bears. Oklahoma. I am strangely comfortable with it.
 
2012-02-29 12:58:52 AM  
There's no proof that there's any such thing as climate.
 
2012-02-29 01:05:00 AM  
I get a kick out of people that seek to extrapolate climate trends from less than 100 years of data. Climate is long term ... tell me we have anthropomorphic global warming after you've studied thousands of years .... not 20 or 30.
