I’ve been watching the 10-day GFS forecast for the U.S., and each run is reinforcing the previous one, with a major cold air outbreak for most of the U.S. late next week:

gfs_850_10d

I’m reminded of when I started the graduate program in meteorology at UW-Madison in the fall of 1978. We were getting an unusual string of cold fronts which all the professors were claiming could not last. Eventually, warmer Pacific air would come in from the west…it always does.

Except during winter ’78-’79…it didn’t. The cold air just kept coming.

I’m not making a winter forecast here…just reminiscing. But I will say that I’ve been watching the model forecasts nearly every day for decades (since I’m co-developer of WeatherStreet.com, and still a weather weenie at heart), and for many years the model forecast tendency has been to over-forecast these cold air outbreaks.
The model would predict a cold front coming through our neck of the woods (N. Alabama) 5-7 days in advance…but the front would almost never make it, or it would not plunge as far south (or be as cold) as originally forecast.

But this model error tendency seems to have changed in the last couple years, with that cold air not only making it, but reaching the Gulf coast and beyond. This has been a record cold summer in Alabama, and we had cool fronts pass through regularly all summer long. I don’t recall that ever happening in the 30 years we have lived here. The lawn stayed spring-green all summer, when usually we have to work to keep it alive.

Maybe my friend Joe Bastardi will chime in and say whether he has seen a similar change in the model error in recent years.

At least we can be thankful that when the cold air does arrive, it will be slightly warmer than it would have been without global warming. Ha-ha.

  1. Wait a second, let me make sure I got this right… when the weather is hot, it’s “man-made global warming”. When the weather is cold, it’s “man-made global cooling”. When there are less or more hurricanes during the year it’s, “man-made climate change”. The fact that the poles are experiencing their coldest period in decades, means that that fact is totally ignored because it refutes “man-made global warming”. “Scientific models” specifically designed to support unfounded and baseless claims is “proof” that “man-made climate change” is “real”. If you choose to believe the facts over the lies of the money-grubbing left and their climate scam, then you are a “reality-denier”. Finally, if you believe in the normal natural climate change of Earth (which actually does exist) but refuse to believe in the “man-made climate change” lie, then you are labeled as denying “all climate change” including the natural kind. Indeed, a large amount of insanity and low IQ nonsense surround this “issue”.

  2. Care to comment pseudo-meteorologist, uh, former vice president and ( . . .must . . .not. . .smirk. . .) environmental activist Al “The Pla-yan-et Has a Fa-hee-ver” Gore?

    I see, and, no, you can’t “eff” me or the horse I rode in on. I don’t even own a horse.

    • And I’ll flush my toilet five times because govt. mandates only 1.5g gallons per flush. Right after I screw in my $34 dollar mercury filled Obamabulb that only cost me $19 because we all subsidized Home Depot for the difference. Hit me up on one of my three OBamaphones, and we’ll go use your EBT card for some beer and porn.

  3. OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!

    Fall has arrived! What will we do?!?!?! Quick… grab cans of hairspray and a lighter! We must stop this EVIL cold warming!

    Guess the warming thing didn’t work out… Lets go for cold.. When that doesn’t work out.. Lets go for OMG!! The climate isn’t changing!! We must collect money to change it…. Free healthcare to the climate? maybe that will work!

  4. Thanks to the hackers who accessed the research work at the University of East Anglia in UK, we now know the scope of the fraud known as ‘global warming’ / ‘climate change’ – and the resulting Cap & Trade tax scheme foisted upon governments and Cities worldwide – which is based completely on the junk-science coming from the University and hacks like Al Gore. The leaked e-mails from UEA UK prove their real mission was to convince the world of a dire climatic condition based on their own fabricated, exaggerated statistics of genuine weather data, The deceptive, evasive nature of the dialogues in those e-mails confirm that ‘global warming’ as we know it, is hoaxed for the purpose of a larger global tax scheme that some people would be profitting immensely from . We were also told that Carbon Dioxide, (one of the FUNDAMENTAL building blocks of life on this Earth), is a ‘toxic substance’ causing the alleged ‘global warming’ condition. This is pure utter horsecrap!! The Earth is approximately 4.5 Billion years old and humans have approximately 125 years of weather data records available to formulate statisitcal patterns. In percentages, this 125-year record keeping effort represents a mere 0.0000028% of the total time the Earth has existed. We are then expected to believe through incompetent inept television media reporting that politician-hacks like Al Gore, (out for his own financial gain) is giving the public correct scientific data? The Chinese knew the name of the tune, they walked out of the Copenhagen Global Climate conference 3 years ago to go back home, snubbing Soetoro/Obama by leaving without meeting with him. It was snowing during that event BTW.

  5. Fer cryin’ out LOUD !!! Major cold outbreak .. Must be a sloooow day for news at ClimateDepot. It’s mid-October folks; completely normal for some chilly temps to start in. Snow on the ground for Halloween was common while I was growing up.

    • I’m in MIddle Tennessee. In fact, I’m near Al Gore’s neighborhood. We had zero days of temperatures in hundreds. It was the coolest summer I can remember. Our humidity was lower in fact than usual. Sure Old Al was trying to come up with some other lie to justify his ‘climate changes’ rubbish.

  6. To Marc Moron-O, a cold snap serves as his “proof” that climate change isn’t happening. And most of you fuc#ing idiots buy it hook, line and sinker. Gee, Marc–do you blow Matt Drudge for the links?

  7. Gore, you need to crank up the heaters on your sumptuous outdoor Olympic pool,..get some greenhouse goin! I figure an alcoholic fat fukkk like you doesn’t swim much, but it’s nice to have that year-round heated pool just in case you ever do put down the bottle and get yourself in shape! Anyway, nice pool! Most universities would be proud to have such a giant lane pool for their swim teams,..what is your electric bill, by the way? Jeez,..the coal,..the COAL!!!

  8. My daddy always said, “Never be predictable, it makes you look stupid”. It’s too bad Matt Drudge and his moronic minions never learned that lesson. There is a big difference between weather and climate. Educate yourselves.

  9. Ah, a bunch of navel gazers. If the weather at this moment is too cool there can’t be global warming. You all are missing the key word: “global”. The weather picture is fluctuating dramatically all over the world. Some cold coming down more unusually than normal? Global warming is changing the “global” weather picture. Abnormal amount of dust flowing from Africa onto the Bahamas? “Global” weather patterns changing because the ocean temperatures are rising. You all think if your backyard isn’t overheated there isn’t anything going on and if your backyard gets hot it’s the BBQ. You need to expand your thinking and understand that over 2000 studies in the past decade support global warming and 14 don’t.

    • Most of those studies are done by people who are funded by Soros and the like. They would like nothing better than to cripple us with draconian environmental rules and regulations and level the playing field. Whether or not there is climate change has virtually nothing to do with human beings.

    • 2000 “studies” that reported what was politically correct so they coudf receive their grants from the government. Anybody rocking the boat got nothing. Now that temperatures have remained stable for the past 15 years, opposing views are increasing. The computer model the global warming nuts believe in is fundamentally flawed, and did not predict the reality of the stop in the rise in temperatures EVEN WITH MORE “GREENHOUSE GAS” PRODUCTION for every one of the 15 past years. Hope you enjoy the coming ice age!

    • Whew! Good thing we have you! Fools want to blame it on solar activity, cyclical change, a lack of hard historical data because technology’s so new, but we ALL know that humans can alter the climate — and the universe — because we’re all geniuses. …and good thing we have you to prove it.

    • Let me see if I have this right…

      The models can’t predict the weather….

      Because the weather is unpredictable…

      But the fact that it’s unpredictable and your models don’t work is proof tat your models are actually correct and work?

      You truly have a dizzying intellect

  10. I’ll never forget the winter of 78/79. Jimmy Carter had mandated that the thermostats of commercial and government buildings weren’t to go over 65. My parents owned and operated a funeral home in which we lived in as well. My dad tried to get a waver since we lived in our business, but was denied. This was a three story house and we froze! I remember wearing long johns and booties our neighbor knit for me and being cold all the time. The city turned off the street lights at night so my parents had to buy a generator to run them during Calling Hours. That was one long winter.

  11. Nice article. I’d really be interested in talking or emailing with the forecaster because, I’ve done study on climate since the 70s, predicted the global warming cycle to the exact year when all were yelling Ice Age and then turned around and predicted the new 30 year average trend of global cooling to exact year which by chance was this year and scientists or at least 33 thousand of them state it started in March so I expect in 3-5 years the public will see the Arctic ice build up way past those 79 averages and warmest will be shocked but new snow and ice melts faster so this will take 3-5 years to be noticed from Space and that picture to come will tell the story and put an end to the bull of global warming when we actually have normal phases like change of seasons. I do a winter forecast each year Thanksgiving week that is my official one and I am NOT a meteorologist but have 80% accuracy which is pretty darn high and that PDO is negative of course and went so early on helping me zero down to 2013 the cooling considering the Sun and earth wobble controls nearly 100% of our climate. It is about 97% with above ground and under Ocean volcanoes and other natural things causing the rest with humans only causing a City Heat Island Effect and pollution but not climate change. Cows do more for that than humans if you want to go with greenhouse gases but those will drop soon because global cooling means upper atmosphere water vapor will dry and those gasses either evaporate or fall back to our salty Oceans to be cleansed as always while in global warming phases, water vapor increases and causes a blanket effect and traps those gases so it means nothing really other than we are killing ourselves with pollution but not changing the climate.

    This is no official winter forecast as of yet but so far; I see similarities of this year and the winter of 83-84. Back in 83 we had record low hurricane activity which was lowest in more than 50 years from memory but forget exact figure and here in eastern TN it was frozen at Christmas that year with snow on the ground and of course, the mountains were covered in snow. I was in Miami the year it snowed there and was at school and already interested in climate and there it was snowing a little that morning. I believe West Palm Beach got a cover of snow unlike Miami but all 50 States had snow including of course Hawaii which gets snow each year btw on that one mountain which if memory is right is the wettest place on earth.

    Will we get warmth from the West? Sure, there will be times of that but as we get two years down the road, that NAO is going to really trend negative along with AO and in global cooling like now, we get fewer El Nino’s and more La Nina’s or La-Nada winters while global warming phases is the opposite. I am still doing ground moisture date and need those last two weeks of October and first two of November to give a forecast set in stone so to speak but so far it looks really interesting to me so if you live in the SE where it has not been snowing much the last 30 years; you are going to get snow this winter. I do winter as December 21st to April 1st but I will forecast for D, J, F, M & A and yep, there will be a chance of an April snow in the TN Valley in 2014. One year many years ago before I was born and on the day my great uncle was born same BD as mine, it snowed in Chattanooga, TN yet I see no record of it however; the temps are recorded at the airport and downtown and means nothing for metro area since two years ago, it snow about 2″ at the airport and 15″ at my house not far from there so it depends on elevation here mile to mile. I will be moving up to Great Lakes soon and that is going to be fun but my storm chasing days are over.

    If ya’ll lol like a cold winter, I think you are going to be happy this coming winter as it looks like it will be cold nationwide to me so far.

    Mark, not to be mistaken for other Marks of same name in the area. Mine is pretty much offline as is my address etc..That is not easy to do but is doable.

  12. There’s no more money to be made in global warming. All the suckers have been suckered.

    A wise person would start investing in ice credits, parkas and cold weather gear. If people are going to be stupid, might as well make a buck off ’em like Al Gore.

  13. Yes, because global warming means that we will never ever again experience cold temperatures. Right. Seriously, you deniers need to at least deal with the facts of what climate science actually says, instead of jousting with imaginary straw men.

  14. The Holy Bible

    2Petter 3:10

    But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

  15. THE LAST DAYS.

    Bible Prophecy

    “Evil Men (and Women) Will Wax Worse and Worse”

    Deceiving . . . (Lying)

    and BEING Deceived”

    Jesus (Yeshua) called Satan the “father of all lies.” The Bible warns “in the last days” evil men (and women) will be prevalent. Lying and deception (which are now called “spin”) will characterize the generation (and the leaders) who will pull the world down into the dark abyss and terrors of the coming “Apocalypse” . . .

    “But KNOW this,

    that in the last days

    perilous times will come . . .

    Evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse,

    deceiving (lying) and being deceived.”

    (2 Timothy 3:1, 13)

    The Scriptures tell us God cannot lie and He h ates all lies. God says truth is non-negotiable and is fundamental to His law. In the past, liars and perjurers were held accountable and dealt with harshly and severely. Today we see lying casually accepted in the news, in the movies, and on television. Lying is now being presented as funny and harmless. This generation is unique in its reaction to liars and perjurers. This nation even lifted up and still glorifies a recent President whose most notable characteristics were flagrantly staring into a TV camera lying and deceiving … and then later being convicted of criminal perjury. This generation mocks our rules of law. This generation mocks God’s Law. As noted, telling the truth is fundamental to God’s law. In the Bible we find when a nation and its leader(s) defiantly mock, ignore, and turn their backs on God’s law, God will turn His back on that nation and will remove His protection and blessings from that people. God help us. The future of that nation and people is always very, very grim …

    A stark warning . . .

    “Knowing this:

    that the Law is not made for a righteous person,

    but for the lawless and insubordinate,

    for the ungodly and for sinners,

    for the unholy and profane,

    for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers,

    for manslayers,

    for $exually immoral (fornicators),

    for homosexuals (sodomites),

    for kidnappers,

    for liars,

    for perjurers,

    and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine”

    (1 Timothy 1:8-10)

    “But the cowardly, unbelieving,

    abominable, murderers,

    $exually immoral,

    sorcerers, (drugs … “pharmakeus”)

    idolaters,

    and all liars

    shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone,

    which is the second death .” (The darkness, aloneness, and torments of HeII

    (Revelation 21:8)

    Sorry if I’m not politcally correct but I don’t have to be.

  16. Forget Al Gore. Gore made his big bucks over this global farce. Now it’s Obama demanding the government to get even bigger and to impose numerous threats about closing the fuel sources that we are rich in and forcing all to bow to new decrees and costs to require the planet to survive. It would sound hilarious if this wasn’t all true.

    I wouldn’t mind his ignorant rants if he were not our President but look where he has taken us in just 4 + years – down to a sewer level and all the bumpkins that voted for him appear to be totally oblivious to what the reality is.

    Unfortunately I’ve given up hope because when I look about me this is parallel to lemmings
    preparing to plunge over the cliffs and all in adoration of this smooth-talking schemer.

    • We should have went ahead and let the debt limit stay. Our first order in that case is to pay our debts would seem the cuts would be be quite wide and two months of that would change the face of this country. I gladly would like to see them try not to pay SS they want a rally in Washington they will get one real quick we paid for it and want it, remember that lock box they busted open years ago.

      Maybe if they would run the government within the limits of balance and surplus we would not be here. They are all to blame an ear mark here there and everywhere. We the people i don’t care what party persuasion color sexual preference need to gather and demand we live within our limits like the average person has too. We can’t print money forever.

  17. Lived in Chicago winter of 78-79, coldest winter I’ve ever lived thru over 30 day where temp did not get above freezing. so cold the commuter trains had problems cause it was so cold. many days of – teens over night. the 120 inches of snow didn’t melt till end of March then it all melted at once causing floods. the huge pile of snow in the local shopping center didn’t melt till the end of May and they had to stop dumping the snow they cleared off the loop streets in downtown c-town into the river cause it didn’t melt

    • Even as a ten year old in Cincinnati it was down right miserable. Weeks below 0 F my best friend and his father walked across the Ohio it was frozen over. I hope we are not in for that this year but is certainly feeling like it, but big Al will say this is the cycle just before warming. Snake oil sales is still strong and good business i see. Nice to see some scientist with real credible information.

  18. For those who are concerned about carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, try to lower your breathing rate. You will lower your carbon footprint. For the rest of us who see carbon dioxide as a friend to life on earth, we will continue to breath normally and not worry about how much carbon dioxide we release. Out of one million particles in the atmosphere, 999,600 of them is NOT carbon dioxide. We are ok. The Earth is fine.

  19. Are all these scientists Al Gorian deniers?

    Perhaps they should be arrested for defying the Al Gorian school of climatoligia.

    They obviously should get rid of their measuring instruments and join the Al Gorian chant group.
    In the meantime the world needs a $2 TRILLION to prop up Al Gorian buddies.

  20. Unbelievable that the sheep in this country still believe in global warming. Although given that they want to line up like lemmings to get their health insurance from a government that can’t build a healthcare website in three years, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised.

      • Well i say it’s time we turn the usage down on his smart meter. Over use for the number of occupants and by god turn the mile long heated drive off. How do people fall for this crap, Big all ranks just below Bernie Madoff with the cash. The solar industry in the states has been on big sham subsidized on every side with whose money ours.Gore belongs either in a mental hospital or jail. He has defrauded so many with his lies it’s criminal. Hate to say it though it’s true i don’t know a lib that isn’t for his cause, have they not thought things out. Our grand parents remember the days when coal smoke the norm in city life and the burbs within a few miles of town. It’s not like that now we are cleaner than ever, need we give every pleasure we
        have i thinks not. get out of my life big brother we are sick of yout intrusions.

  21. I REMEMBER THAT WINTER. MY DAD SPENT THE ENTIRE NIGHT UNDER THE TRAILER WITH A TORCH TRYING TO KEEP THE WATER FROM FREEZING. IT GOT -52 THAT NIGHT. THAT’S THE COLDEST THAT I’VE EVER SEEN IT! WE HAD A LOT OF SNOW TOO AND A VERY LATE SPRING!

  22. Dear Genius Climate Change Scientists, Correct me if I’m wrong: The earth rotates and spins on its axis. It also hurtles through space at ridiculous speeds, orbiting the sun which also flies through space in an ever-moving galaxy. Over our earth, there’s our atmosphere in constant motion as well. It’s affected by everything above. I’m no genius, BUT OF COURSE THERE’S CLIMATE CHANGE! But other than Jesus Christ, no other HUMAN HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT. Carbon Dioxide isn’t a pollutant you morons! We exhale it, and plants “inhale” it (Take it in) – and they’re nice enough to “exhale” or (give off) Oxygen. It’s called symbiosis and it was a gift and further proof of a creator, who even in his infinite wisdom probably couldn’t have predicted his creatures would someday call it pollution and tax it.

    • Yes, we have the stvpid climate changers claiming that the world never changes. That weather has a 100% predictable pattern and any minute deviation is proof of man f’ing the world and a perfect reason to tax.

  23. Global Warming is misnomer, at least in the way many non-scientist understand the term. Yes average
    temperatures are rising, winters are also becoming harsher. That’s why
    most scientist are opting to refer it as Climate Change to avoid confusion.

    • They are not changing it to avoid confusion….the fact is the Earth has NOT been warming. They need something to call it, so they call it climate change. The very definition of “climate” has change in it. “the pattern of variation in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, precipitation, atmospheric particle count and other meteorological variables in a given region over long periods”
      I wonder how long it will take for the alarmists to accept the egg on their face and admit they were wrong?

    • Yeah, Climate Change. You know, that thing that has been happening constantly throughout the Earth’s history.

      Antarctica was covered in rain forest at one time, grapes were grown in England, most of the world was once covered in ice – you know the story.

    • The label “climate change” was inevitable when, over the course of many people’s lives, we saw the experts claim first that the sky was falling because of global cooling, and then, when it didn’t get cold, that we would all die of global warming. When it became apparent that some times its cold, and sometimes its hot, and they realized that there was no grant money to be gotten if they simply acknowledge that nothing was wrong, some Goebellian genius came up with the catch-all brand of “global climate change.” Now, no matter what happens or doesn’t happen, they can claim to have been right.

    • That is called media coverage silly boy. Remember the NY/NJ hurricane last year? Do you consider that abnormal? It has been used as absolute proof of Global Warming/Climate Change. Yet somehow I think that is far from abnormal…I am sure the exact same thing has happed 1,000 times over the course of millions of years.

        • Weather patterns are shifting? Who would think? Again, lDIOT, weather and climate will change. Watching for a one degree F change over the course of a century is ridiculous. Any apparent warming has leveled off, and may actually be COOLING….that goes right the F in the face of the fear mongering that has happened for decades.
          I never …NEVER….said that 7 billion humans had zero effect, did I stvpid? But what is lacking is the gloom and doom that was predicted, and it is actually going the other way. The 7 billion people are not going to end the world with CO2, rather food shortage and disease. But you can’t tax that.

          • Have you ever been to the Arctic,, I have,,, and the Permafrost is no longer Permafrost. It doesn’t matter about a million years ago, its the last 1000 that indicate major changes have been happening, youre obviously just some dumb redneck with now scientific education,,

        • You say it’s moronic, but the global cooling / warming / changing crowd has been caught fudging the data so often that one can only conclude that the evidence really is that there’s no effect. It’s a big planet with awfully good controls built into it. I know you want to be able to point to a falling sky and bask in having been right, but it ain’t happening.

        • If you look at earth’s climate history, the most unusual thing is how stable the climate has been for the last 10,000 (not 25,000) years is how stable it has been. The Earth has been long overdue for a natural climate change. Perhaps Man is responsible for that stability (though I think not).

  24. CLIMATE CHANGE GLOSSARY

    PEER REVIEW: The act of banding together a group of like-minded
    academics with a funding conflict of interest, for the purpose of squeezing out
    any research voices that threaten the multi-million dollar government grant
    gravy train.

    SETTLED SCIENCE: Betrayal of the scientific method for politics or
    money or both.

    DENIER: Anyone who suspects the truth.

    CLIMATE CHANGE: What has been happening for billions of years, but
    should now be flogged to produce ‘panic for profit.’

    NOBEL PEACE PRIZE: Leftist Nutcase Prize, unrelated to “Peace” in
    any meaningful way.

    DATA, EVIDENCE: Unnecessary details. If anyone asks for this, see
    “DENIER,” above.

    CLIMATE SCIENTIST: A person skilled in spouting obscure,
    scientific-sounding jargon that has the effect of deflecting requests for
    “DATA” by “DENIERS.” Also skilled at affecting an aura of “Smartest Person in
    the Room” to buffalo gullible legislators and journalists.

    JUNK SCIENCE: The use of invalid scientific
    evidence resulting in findings of causation which simply cannot be justified or
    understood from the standpoint of the current state of credible scientific
    knowledge.

  25. ok, my turn, after reading these posts and believe me I’m no fan of Al Gore’s……but what the Earth needs is a nice flash fry, do over, give another species a chance……. if global warming does the trick, so be it

    • I lived outside Chicago in the winter of ’78 that was referred to in the article. The volunteer fire department filled the swimming pool parking lot with water from a hydrant so we could skate on the ice. Between making a ton of money in the morning shoveling people’s driveways so they could go to work, and playing hockey in that parking lot in the afternoons, that winter is among my fondest memories.

      • So explain why the Earth is not warming at all, especially with that classic “hockey stick” graph of CO2. Global Warming is NOT a misnomer, it has been that for decades but was changed to “climate change” when GW failed to happen. One would think that if you knew science, you would be able to grasp 3rd grade grammar….there is no need for two commas 😉

      • What is called warming is actually increased energy in the atmosphere. If you look at the decrease in the number and intensity of storms throughout the world, the stable temps over the last decade and a half, and the slow down in the long trend of ocean warming, the only conclusion is that we have done nothing to increase the total energy of the climate system. Man does, however, affect local climes, which is referred to as the urban heat island.

    • They need tax money, can you blame them? What was supposed to be gloom and doom turned out to be the biggest dud fart, minus the methane of course 🙂
      Liberals are arrogant, and will never admit they are wrong. That is why you get changing terms and “false hopes” of Global Warming like a dime a dozen hurricane.

  26. The greatest harm from “global climate change” will be that an entire generation will come to disregard science as a pure discipline. The global warming orthodoxy punishes all dissenting views, and tolerates bad science, because the focus of much of the scientific community has shifted from discerning truth to making money from the public purse by declaring a false emergency, studying the false emergency, and designing a solution to the false emergency.

    • If it’s hot, it’s global warming. If it’s cold, it’s climate change. If it rains, we’re in a drought and if it doesn’t rain we can all expect flash flooding. Gotta cover all your bases, like betting on red and black, or odd and even at the roulette table.

  27. The Public Broadcasting System still trumpets global warming via CO 2 emissions, Clearly they are on Al Gore’s side, not heeding the science but seemingly tied to the wishful thinking of non scientists. PBS is a bull horn for the democrat party and is not in the main stream.

  28. I love it. Drudge has a weather story on his front page. You know what that means. He’s pretty much avoiding politics because yesterday was not a very good day for what I would call the “Drudge right.”

  29. First timer here. Great forecasting! These trends will determine our weather in the northeast. Why does local ignore this reporting. I predict a fridged winter in the northeast. Be ready! Thanks to Marc Morano. Good school…. and he paid attention!

    • By “Whores”, do you include Kari Norgaard, the sociologist who said ‘climate change deniers’ should be medicated for mental illness? You should google her photos. If anyone should be institutionalized, it should be Norgaard.

  30. Thank God! I’ve had enough heat and sweat and stink and disease for a lifetime! If anyone still thinks that the planet isn’t warming up then you’re either stupidly politically parisan or very young. I am old enough to to remember when in the northeast US there was frost on the ground in SEPTEMBER.

  31. Sea levels rise as precursor to colder phases in the Earth’s climate, and yet some try to make out it’s the result of warming. Just before the “Little Ice Age”, sea levels rose a lot and the tides from that are how Asians crossed the Pacific to get to this continent … and the Bearing Straight crossing theory is all rubbish. The Mayan Calendar is based on cold-warm-cold millennia and giant meteorites falling and humans didn’t have anything to do with that or carbon … except all the trees that burn up when one like the strike in Tunguska or giant eruptions like the Krakatoa event or the one that made Valle Grande in New Mexico. Everybody needs to real Bob Stallholder’s book, “Setting the World on Fire” and Bill Childress’ “Bonfires of the Gods”.

  32. “Slightly warmer than it would have been without global warming. ha-ha”??? You think that is funny? Along with the religion of evolution the religion of man-made global warming is just as much bullshit. I wish to Christ that you morons would finally pull your well-inserted heads out of your asses.

  33. youtube: The IPCC Exposed
    http://youtu.be/LOyBfihjQvI

    Many so called IPCC ‘top’ scientists are “still 10 years away from a PHD”.
    With now all the exposed fraudulent papers, illegally withholding data, admitted manipulated studies and admissions of scientists lying, perhaps the ‘Warmists’ are the real ‘Deniers’.
    Who are the hysteric alarmists?

    Top MIT scientist: Newest UN climate report is ‘hilariously’ flawed
    9/29/2013

    “I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,” Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot, a global warming skeptic news site. “They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models as the discrepancies between their models and observations increase.”

    Darwin award contenders! Liberal zombies decide not to fly and not to have kids because of global warming. I am asking: is it really bad news???

  34. KNOW YOUR ENEMY

    Get ready for the next ‘CLIMATE CHANGE!!!’ hysterics:

    MSM (AP & Rueters; Rothschild owned, see below) needs to give credibility to the UN because it is intended to be the ‘world’s regulatory agency (but controlled by who really?)

    Now Rothschilds bought a weather broadcasting network, Google it:

    (Just see the last 3 minutes) you will understand

  35. Again millions of people will suffer through, and will be endangered by, extremely cold temperatures and snow. This trend dramatically demonstrates that the earth is profoundly threatened by a new weather phenomenon, “Global Cooling.” If left unchecked the earth will enter a new Ice Age and will turn into a frozen, lifeless ice cube like Mars. This calamity is being caused by the atmospheric changes brought on by all the rich left wingers. By overheating their large mansions, flying around in their personal jets and spewing toxic waste from their mouths, they block the sunlight from reaching earth. Fortunately, there is a solution. By imposing a 100% tax on left wingers we can save civilization and the earth. Al Gore, we’re gonna get our money back

  36. Now we’re talking! Anybody who loves to sweat 24 hours a day, move to freakin’ Florida. It won’t be long before you get sick of endless summers.

    As for ’78-79, you are so right, that was one humdinger of a winter. I remember there was a one week period where the temps in NYC did not go above zero. The first day it broke, the temp reached 29 and it felt like summer. Driving with the windows down. An excellent lesson in relativity. Cheers. *burp*…

  37. But…..but…..but……I thought “The Goreacle” had already spoken and all this stuff was resolved and settled. Maybe this helps explain things:
    “The roots of liberalism — and its associated madness — can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind. When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

  38. Al Gore the hypocrite?
    He be flying all over the country
    With his gas guzzeling jet all the while telling the masses to conserve energy because of global warming, which this article once again prooving what a literal buffoon he and his cronies are.
    Will the libs and theyr story telling charades ever
    End?

  39. Norm said, “Actually, it’s called climate change. You tea bagggers don’t understand how it works…”
    Funny, that’s what we were told about Obamacare too … and yet our past warnings (characterized as “lies” and faulty understanding by O supporters and even by some on the Right) are now called Current Events.
