It wasn’t magic, but some did consider it magical. Snow covered much of the Middle East for the first time in decades on Friday, covering everything from pyramids to camels.

            Lets just say it this way.

            I want you to explain why it is not a lie. Please explain for us dunderheads how global warming=harsher winters.

          • Ty in TX ✓ᵇᵒⁿᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Oh I already know the story. With rising global temperatures, more water vapor collects in the atmosphere. With greater water vapor, more heat is trapped in the atmosphere, ergo raising the temperatures more. But conversely, the extra water vapor is increasing the albedo factor of the cloud cover in our atmo. Eventually the albedo overcomes the trapped heat and the atmo catastrophically releases the water vapor as various forms of precipitation. In the higher latitudes of which ever hemisphere is in winter, it will see massive amounts of snow.
            I understand the hypothesis, science was always my best subject ,but like any good scientist, one should always remain skeptical until repeated, verifiable, independent tests return the same data supporting the hypothesis.
            I find using climate models of past weather patterns to predict future climate trends to be. . . guessing. Even with great advances in radar and computer tech, your local weather forecaster still can’t accurately forecast the weather 5 days in advance. And even then when newer data comes in, those day 4 and 5 forecasts tend to change.
            Malcolm Reynolds called it, with the amount of blind acceptance that Anthropogenic Climate Change demands of someone, it’s more an act of faith then a rational look at verified empirical data and making an informed decision.
            On a side note, I also find it highly interesting that the answer for all the impending eco-disasters always seems to be The U.S. needs to pull back it’s economy to the point of Third World Status.
            >>I’m guessing you don’t even have the slightest understanding of how the climate works.
            Oh snap, I guess I do.
            And for the record, I didn’t have to Google it. :)

          Just because it SNOWED for the first time in 100 years doesnt mean global warming is real. What if it was SUPPOSED TO SNOW this year? What if that is normal for 2013? WE DONT KNOW.

        • http://www.almarquardt.com/ almarquardt

          And global cooling leads to hotter summers, too? Truth is, we don’t know what the weather is going to do three days from now, let alone 10 or 100 years.

          What I, and many others, have a problem with is the idea that it’s all man’s fault. This planet has endured both global warming and ice ages for millions of years before man has walked this planet. Why would any drastic and long-term weather changes be our fault now?

        • DwellsInFire

          Here’s the deal. Search google for “ipcc admits no global warming”. When the IPCC now admits that warming has leveled off for the past 15-17 years, and that their computer models were way off, then it seems like this whole global warming thing should be done with. Unfortunately once a belief gets into the public’s head, it gets near impossible to undo it. In addition, in other articles, scientists now admit that the sun has more affect than previously thought. So as far as I can tell, global warming is a dead issue now.

          • Nan

            I expected to read that scientists now admit the sun is the center of the universe…

          Why is it every winter when folks point out record cold temps and snow where show doesn’t normally fall, the lefties all scream “Weather is Not Climate!”? Yet every summer when a predictable heat wave hits (OMG, It’s 120* in Phoenix!!) those same lefties are all pointing at it and screaming “See? We told you Glo-Bull warming was true!!!”.

          Cognitive dissonance is a horrible malady.

            Cloud seeding is hardly weather control. The only time cloud seeding really “works” is when the conditions are very close to rainfall anyway. The majority of time, a rain dance is just as effective.

        Yes because as we all know, cavemen were rockin’ Ford F150’s, polluting the air and causing the ice age.

        Gore never said that Global Warming would cause MORE COLD. He said it would melt the ice caps and kill the polar bears.

        In demonstration thereof, he showed footage of ice sheets calving icebergs into the ocean.

        From a movie.

        Which, ice sheets calve bergs when they advance, which means more snow, not more melting.

        Also, the footage was from a movie.

        Did I mention that the footage was CGI?

      No. Geometrically impossible.

    Amazing. All this snow MUST be the product of the melting Arctic ice sheets and coming back as snow right Al Gore?

    THERE YOU GO! The Israelis and Muslims can forget their troubles and strife, and PLAY IN THE SNOW! They’ll have so much fun, they’ll forget about fighting each other… At least until it melts… #HolyLandWinterWonderland Jawamax 8<{D}

    Add four degrees to the tilt of our axis and this is what you get. Snow where it normally doesn’t snow. I welcome it. No Sudafed for spring and summer. Not as many bugs to scrape from the windshield. We as humans have survived an Ice Age before. Let’s weed out the weak from the strong.

    Peak oil is a myth constructed by people with so much more knowledge about earth and space systems than the common man it is a joke. My grandfather, Jedediah Bingemuntel was member of the CFR and he told us way back when that there are three inhabited planets in the solar system, each at a slightly different point in its development. Earth is in the middle of these two other planets (which have been misrepresented to us as Venus and Mars), and they use Mars (the most advanced) to predict what will happen on Earth, and Earth to predict for Venus.

    I wish I was making this up but I’m not. Tales of Martian aliens sprang from this fact, as it is indeed Martians who are visiting us, and who have created a kind of self-replicating space virus that is responsible for manufacturing the rings of saturn, which are used as “food” for the virus in its larval stage.

    The pyramids of Egypt were all built by Earthlings, apart from the Great Pyramid, which was constructed by Martians between 5 and fifteen millennia ago.

  • Liberalism is Nonsense

    Deceit and deception are two of the key tactics employed by the quacks and charlatans preaching man-made global-warming: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2425775/Climate-scientists-told-cover-fact-Earths-temperature-risen-15-years.html

    Let’s do this again….

    Weather: the state of the atmosphere at a place and time as regards heat, dryness, sunshine, wind, rain, etc.

    Climate: the weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period:

      Tell that to the CAGW proponents.

  • Arkuy The Great

    Well, I definitely feel cheated. Israel, Egypt, Lebanon and Syria, heck even Saudi Arabia got their first significant snowfall of the season before we did here in MA! Whiskey Tango….

  • WJ_texas

    Ok who over paid the UN for Global warming?

    • Nan

      With the UN’s bookkeeping they’ll never get a refund.

    YES! Hit them hard!
    I hope you get -50°C Tomorrow!!!!!!
