I have been frantically chopping and stacking six cords of firewood in anticipation of a cold, cruel winter. The false stories that winter would vanish irritate me because my beloved weather service forecasts have grown increasingly useless over the years thanks to the global warming indoctrination. Yes, it may be -40 below rather than -55 below in Antarctica but it is still hugely below freezing there and it isn’t often much warmer here up in North America’s glacier Ice Age belt. This week brings single digit weather tonight and it isn’t even Thanksgiving. If the Puritans waited until this week to have their famous dinner with the natives, they would have turned into blocks of ice long before the turkey was cooked.
This week, the NOAA guys decided after whiffing the ball with the hurricane forecast, they out to do a second strike out: U.S. Winter Outlook Dominated by Dire Drought News | Climate Central
The outlook, issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on Thursday, shows that the winter of 2013-14 is likely to feature an expansion and intensification of drought conditions across the Southwest and Southeast. That includes California, which has had its driest year on record so far in 2013, and which needs sufficient mountain snowfall this winter to prevent water supply shortages during the summer months.
In the absence of a clear signal from the tropical Pacific Ocean, NOAA based its outlook on factors that have a less definitive influence for much of the U.S., including long-term trends and computer models used for long-range forecasting.
Just like when the British global warming climatologists totally miscalled the weather two years ago predicting hot and cold and then for several months it was cold and extremely wet, we have a repeat going here. Right on cue, the minute this forecast was made, we had a major blizzard slam into the very areas NOAA said would be hot and super dry: Eight dead in winter storm system in NM, TX | WCNC.com Charlotte
As thick, gray clouds covered the Southwest, forecasters said the storm would sweep across the South and toward the Atlantic coast next week, causing problems for holiday travelers.
Joe Harris, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said the “Nordic outbreak” will “produce a mixed bag of wily weather that will end up impacting much of the nation.”
It isn’t just 7 degrees F for my mountain tonight, it is going to happen again on Thanksgiving day. This is JANUARY weather, not November. We have one day above freezing in this ice-cold week. The NOAA map suggests New England will be hotter this winter and so far, this is not the case at all.
Just as I have suggested the global warming people should come up with some sane explanation as to why the Atlantic had near zero hurricane activity while the Pacific was and still is active, this isn’t a joke, they have to explain this and saying that ‘the Arctic is warm and this is causing it’ is not going to pass my test here. For they forecast many hurricanes, not none! And they knew the temperatures of the Arctic last summer so there is no excuse here.
Mega-climate predictions are highly dangerous. Claiming that everything is ‘global warming’ is a cheat. Cold isn’t warm. And we still don’t know the exact trigger that caused all the Ice Ages but we can suspect heavily that it was caused by the earth’s tilt and a sudden decrease in solar sun spot activity. And this warns us we have to guard against this happening again because it is happening this very day to some extent, partially hidden by the good fortune of CO2 increases.
The Warsaw Walkout and the Climate Movement » CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names shows how pathetic the global warming guys are these days. The author writes about the Copenhagen fiasco without mentioning the blizzards and severe cold that engulfed Europe that year which turned most Europeans against the high CO2 taxes which would be levied on them all to pay for government overruns and to hand trillions to third world equatorial/very warm dictators. This would put not one solar panel on one roof nor would it stop deforestation which is caused by high population pressures and economic drives to profit off public lands.
Many of my rural neighbors who once used fossil fuels to heat their homes are going for wood furnaces that belch out huge clouds of soot and are causing a rise in asthma here. They can’t afford anything else, anymore. And this blanket of smoke will cover many first world nations as desperate citizens try to stay warm or are forced to flee the north and move to the edge of the oceans in the warm south which is the part of the planet demanding this energy tax so they can do what? They really don’t clearly say. I do know this transfer of wealth from the lower classes in the northern hemisphere won’t make it easier for them all to become ‘green energy’ users.
I can’t afford it! Nor can many of my neighbors. We need help, a government program handing out solar panels made in the US which would be cheaper than any anti-Muslim war or boycott. We should have spent the two trillion on the Afghan/Iraq/Libya/Syria/Iran struggles of power to green the homes of the working masses in the US. Which never was even proposed, much less, done. Nor are the Greens fighting for this, they talk endlessly about how poor warm nations are suffering while SNEERING at us, coping desperately with 7 degrees F cold in November. No concern for us, no mercy for our plight, not a peep about how people can easily die when it is this cold.
