Tornado/storm watch: #Euclid

While many Americans woke up to a white Christmas, residents in southern states are bracing for tornados. Texas is on high alert as snowstorm Euclid passes through. Yes, snowstorms have names now.

Funny name or not, forewarned is forearmed. To all our readers in the tornado zone, take care and stay safe!

    Yes, the Weather Channel has taken it upon themselves to name winter storms, much to the ire of The National Weather Service… They’re fitting right in with the NBC/Universal news culture… make sh*t up as they go along…

    We used to watch the Weather Channel quite a bit. Then they started showing Storm Stories and other programs when we really wanted the weather forecast. Now, we rarely use them for forecasts, as we now watch the local stations and check weather websites, where we will get what we need when we need it.

    Anti-Death Penalty Professor Proposes Death Penalty For Global Warning Deniers

    So let me get this straight – this professor opposes the death penalty for criminals such as mass murderers, child molesters, and rapists, but he wants people who disagree with him to be killed? By default, does that mean he agrees with what mass murderers, child molesters, and rapists did?

    Even mass murderers should not be executed, in my opinion. Consider the politically motivated murder of 77 people in Norway in 2011. Of course the murderer does not deserve to live, and there is not the slightest doubt that he is guilty. But if the Norwegian government killed him, that would just increase the number of dead to 78. It would not bring the dead back to life. In fact, it would not achieve anything positive at all. I respect the families and friends of the victims if they feel differently about that. I am simply presenting what seems to me to be a logical argument. […]

    GW is different. With high probability it will cause hundreds of millions of deaths. For this reason I propose that the death penalty is appropriate for influential GW deniers.

    This professor is proposing the death penalty for people who simply deny global warming. Because their beliefs and opinions differ to his. Because, in his mind, their lack of urgency could potentially cause deaths decades or even centuries later. Because, until proven wrong beyond any doubt, his theory is paramount, while the theory of those who disagree should be squelch and silenced forever, with their murderers becoming heroes among global warming alarmists.

    If they’d have named the snow storms when I was gainfully employed in Timmins – decades ago – they’d have gotten to Z before Christmas.
