Jakesta: LouDobbsAwaaaay: Jakesta: Weather or not (see what I did there?) climate change is man made is a silly argument. It implies that the climate ofthe earth has been stable at any point in time.

It most certainly does not.  This is what I mean when I say that the problem is that you guys think you know what you're talking about.  You're wrong from the very beginning, and you build your case from there.

So what exactly is the "problem"?
Enlighten me please.

Jakesta: So let me get this straight. Artic ice shelves retreat for a few years and that is proof of global warming. The Great Lakes freeze more than they ever have, but that can't be used as an argument against it. I think I got it. Weather patterns in some parts of the world are more important than others.


Correct. Just like ice core samples from Russia illustrate the entire global climate for thousands of years.

Michigan: 80
Ontario: 32


I get 79.6%, not 87%.

I don't know if the slight global warming we've noticed is man-made or not.  But what's interesting is the ferocity in which the Alarmists defend their position no matter what.

It's almost like they are desperately wishing it to be true, so that they can press for a global re-distribution of wealth to "combat" it.

And there's lots of hypocrisy flying around to boot.

This winter we've been having in Ohio is actually the kind of winter I remember growing up in Michigan in the 70s and 80s.  Constant snow on the ground.  Though it's been nothing but cold for the past few months, colder than I remember those Michigan winters being.

Ought to check out this link (it's from 2000) :  http://michellemalkin.com/2010/12/20/children-snow/

And a clip from it:  According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event".

A decade and a half later it sure isn't rare, but at times it has been getting exciting!

Dr Jack Badofsky: unexplained bacon: Dr Jack Badofsky: unexplained bacon: looks like we're getting a heat wave next week, not sure if that's factored in DRTFA

damn it's been a hard winter, I can't recall one so cold and so snowy with so few breaks.

In the Buffalo area, that would be the winter of 2010/2011.  Started December 3rd, and didn't warm up until at least mid-march.  We just didn't have the temps so close to zero (or below like a couple nights ago).  That was some major mandingsnow.

I'm trying to recall, but I think that year brought a lot of snow for us too, but we had thaws in between the storms. Not so much this year. The cold has been straight up brutal too, temps below -10 at night were practically common. It's 36 right now and I swear it feels like shorts weather. The wind doesn't even hurt my face.

I had damn near two feet of snow from December to march.  It may have warmed up for a couple days in between, but it was quickly followed by at least enough snow to replace what melted.  It was a lot like when I was a kid in the 70's and 80's.


sounds like what I remember. this year around here we had even more snow storms with very little if any melt in between, I've got 2 foot of snow for sure. It's been windy too so the drifts are massive. Not to mention we had a crazy ass-windstorm in November that ripped up 6 adult trees in my yard.

harsh man, harsh.
