Submitter, it's climate change, not global warming.
 
You are the worst.
 
2012-12-20 09:30:38 AM  
You laugh, but it used to be 80 below. It's warming up fast, smitty!

The girls in the picture in TFA, however, are hot.

I think minus fifty is actually considered picnic weather in Siberia.

Meanwhile here in Buffalo it's supposed to be 45 and sunny. I ain't complaining.

Meanwhile, here in Maine, it couldn't get below freezing for 2-3 days, when it should be in the single digits (at night). Made for an interesting "snowstorm" ... :/

Gulper Eel: 57 below in Ojmjakon, Chet.

we're getting a foot of global warming today

/thats how it works right?
 
2012-12-20 10:42:33 AM  
That's a windchill factor of 50 below. Air temperature is 20 below. That's damn cold this early in the season, but hey, it's Siberia.
 
2012-12-20 10:43:34 AM  
As a Canadian,( Northern Canadian) I say that's getting a little cool.

So when it is cold near the Arctic circle in the Winter, that proves there is no such thing as global warming, and Sarah Palin is automatically President.

Lot of disappointed little kids in Siberia then... (They don't let the little kids stay home from school until it gets to -30°C)

I'm sitting here in Chicago and we are supposed to get our first snow today - 2 records of note were broken this year - longest time period between measurable snows and also latest date for a measurable snow to occur.

Hope the snow holds off until I get home

I don't think it is 52 below in the picture where pretty girls are walking without hats and gloves. No matter how hot they are.

So what's a hungover elephant like in the morning, after you burned his trailer down in weather so cold you can't even write your name in the snow?

Everyone else can point and laugh at the "experienced" Farkers that don't know an obvious trolling headline on here when they see one. This is Fark, not FreeRepublic, after all.

-50F is colder than -30C; the break-even point is -40F = -40C

In case anyone is curious as to who shifted the discussion from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change..."

Certain memes need to DIAF.
 
2012-12-20 10:51:45 AM  
Global stupid still at record levels though.
 
2012-12-20 10:51:52 AM  
It's called global warming. Not Russia warming.
 
2012-12-20 10:52:28 AM  
We could argue about Global Warming vs Climate Change, or we could post pictures of hot Russian women.
 
I know what I'd rather do.

ZOMG! Winter is cold, thus, climate change is not happening. Somebody take a picture of Al Gore's book in the snow.

That's funny. Where I live we're wondering if there will be enough ice on the river to go ice fishing this year. It used to be an annual tradition, but the weather has been too warm the last 3 years.

FlameDuck: I don't think it is 52 below in the picture where pretty girls are walking without hats and gloves. No matter how hot they are.


Earlier in the article: In Moscow it felt like 10 below

Caption for the picture: These women were among those who braved the subzero temperatures in Moscow on Wednesday.

Using my amazing powers of deduction, I am able to conclude that no, no it was not 52 below in that picture.

Yeah, that's only appropriate in all the threads about how hot it is.
 
2012-12-20 10:54:15 AM  
Although Luntz later tried to distance himself from the Bush administration policy, it was his idea that administration communications reframe "global warming" as "climate change" since "climate change" was thought to sound less severe.

lol, so it really is "global warming" with a political spin put on it. So subby is right after all.

Hey, look! "Near average" in parts of Russia! And it was cold in small portions of the north Pacific! Take that, climate science!  (Larger version here. Full NOAA/NCDC report here. tl;dr version: 2012 was unusually warm, globally. Just like every recent year. )

After all the stupid shiat the last administration started around the world I always suspected they would try to invade Siberia just before winter as a finishing touch and to prove to the world they had no strategy. Or reference to previous bad strategy. That guy's library should be filled with Dick and Jane books.

Hrm. No one has arrived to post that Al Gore is fat therefore climate change is God's way of keeping Urantia out of our brainwaves. Suspicious.

Well, when even Luntz repudiates it, that's kinda like Karl Rove saying that someone pulled a jerk move, or Dick Cheney saying someone was heartless.
Yes, there's politics involved. No, it's not on the side that some people claim.

I hate this expression. It's a cop out catch all designed to make climatologists look like seers no matter what happens. Climate gets hotter? Climate change. Climate gets colder? Also climate change. Climate gets wetter? Told you so! Climate gets drier? I'm right about that one too!

If you want credit for building a model with predictive power, you need to actually predict something. Otherwise, STFU.

FlashHarry: everyone point and laugh at submittard and his inability to distinguish between weather and climate!


Pretty much what I was going to say. Things like the jet streams cause fluctuations all the time, between being unusually warm and unusually cold. That's different from long term trends that transcend local variations.

-50F is colder than -30C; the break-even point is -40F = -40C


Yeah, that was intended as a response to superdude's comment about that only being 20 below, and it was the windchill bringing it to 50 below. They don't count the windchill :-/
 
2012-12-20 11:04:12 AM  
There is a HUGE difference between a windchill of -47 and a temperature of -47.

It was -37 here in a North American city yesterday morning and below -30 for most of the month. On the other side, it is sad what is happening, the big difference here is we can afford all the insulation and high tech clothing and car heaters we need.

The base prediction is a warming planet, which is demonstrably happening. That doesn't mean that every point on the surface of the planet is going to be hotter than it was before at all points at all times.

It'd be like predicting that the ocean level is rising, overall, and then some guy points at some small harbor that's experiencing low tide at that exact moment, and saying "Nah uh! the ocean levels are DROPPING"

It's the difference between a point sample and a long term averaged trend-line.
 
2012-12-20 11:06:37 AM  
But it's a dry cold.
