Damn Global Warming!

One of the favorite things the warmists like to do is point to isolated temperature events that bolster their cause and claim them to be a result of man-made global warming. I have to wonder what they have to say about an entire winter such as this:

They predicted no let up in the freezing snap until at least mid-January, with snow, ice and severe frosts dominating.

And the likelihood is that the second half of the month will be even colder.

Weather patterns were more like those in the late 1970s, experts said, while Met Office figures released on Monday are expected to show that the country is experiencing the coldest winter for up to 25 years.

The cold weather comes despite the Met Office’s long range forecast, published, in October, of a mild winter. That followed it’s earlier inaccurate prediction of a “barbecue summer”, which then saw heavy rainfall and the wettest July for almost 100 years.

Paul Michaelwaite, forecaster for, said: “It is looking like this winter could be in the top 20 cold winters in the last 100 years.

I look forward to the creative spin warmists will try to use to explain away what could be one of the coldest winters in 100 years right smack in the middle of this unstoppable warming they’ve been touting. Oh, wait, we’ve been cooling for 10 years haven’t we? So that trend would support such a winter occurring wouldn’t it?

Your turn warmists – why are we seeing this horribly cold weather while in the midst of a “warming trend”?

  • Noise in the data, old boy.  Noise in the data.

    It’s predicted to stay in the teens every night for the next couple of weeks here in No. Carolina, and barely get above freezing during the day (thank heaven we aren’t expecting precipitation).  And yet, the Gorebots are still at it.  They are becoming like a man swearing he’s faithful even when his wife catches him in flagrante delecto.  There are lies, damned lies, and STUPID lies.

  • I think you are confused.  The cold winter is because of global warming.  So are earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, etc.
    I mean, it’s settled science and all.

  • Time has run out for politicians to take credit for turning back “Global Warming”

    • That past decade of cooling is not slight warming.  They are the keepers of the data and its in the process of being massaged and revised. 

  • Didn’t you get the memo? it’s climate change now.  So any time the climate changes, it’s clearly caused by carbon dioxide from the tailpipes of our eeeeevil SUVs!  And it’s starting to change more often now.  Did you know that for the last decade the climate’s changed four times a year?  Clearly that’s way more often than in my childhood a scant three decades ago, when I had to walk to school uphill both ways in the snow all summer long.

  • Man enters shop; confront Al Gore –

    Man: Hello, miss?

    Gore: What you mean ‘miss’?

    Man: Oh, I’m sorry.  I have a cold.  I want to complain about this global crisis which I purchased in 2005 from this very boutique.

    Gore: Oh yeah, the AGW…what’s wrong with it?

    Man: I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it my lad; it’s dead, that’s what’s wrong with it!

    Gore: Nah, nah.  It’s resting.  Beautiful crisis the AGW, entirely unfalsifiable.

    Man: Look, why is everyone freezing their asses off?

    Gore: The AGW prefers kipping during the winter months.

    Man:  When I purchases this crisis you assured me the lack of any immediate warming was due to its being tried and shagged out after causing Hurricane Katrina.  Since then we’ve not had a single catastrophic hurricane to use to inflame the masses.  What sort of crisis is that?!?

    Gore:  Well…I better replace it then.  Let’s see….sorry, we are fresh out of environmental disasters whose only recourse is socialist government.

    Man: I see.  I get the picture.

    Gore: I’ve got a pandemic.

    Man: Is it mind-bogglingly scary?

    Gore: Uh…not really.

    Man: Then it is scarecly a replacement then is it?   

  • It’s getting worse for the AGW political machine, now that the possibility has been raised that there has been no increase in the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere… over the last 150 years.
    An equally important point is raised if you notice the links in the “Related Stories” section.  Apparently, the issue of the Earth’s ability to regulate atmospheric CO2 levels (which is a critical factor in the AGW issue, obviously) is not even fully understood, much less a “settled” issue.  If you need a glaring piece of evidence that AGW/CC is just a political issue, there you go– we don’t even know for sure if CO2 levels have risen at all over the last 150 years!

  • Obama was right. When he was elected the earth stopped warming and the seas stopped rising.

    His heroic efforts have paid off.

    • Martin McPhillipsObama was right. When he was elected the earth stopped warming and the seas stopped rising.

      I fully expect him to take credit for this.  Seriously.

      • I don’t know exactly what they did in Copenhagen, but it was too much.  I blame Obama.

  • It is not global warming, it is climate change.  That way, no matter what happens, bigger government will be the solution!

  • This is why I am so glad to report that Michael Mann – creator of the incredible Hockey Stick curve and one of the scientists most heavily implicated in the Climategate scandal – is about to get a very nasty shock. When he turns up to work on Monday, he’ll find that all 27 of his colleagues at the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University have received a rather tempting email inviting them to blow the whistle on anyone they know who may have been fraudulently misusing federal grant funds for climate research.
    Under US law, regardless of whether or not a prosecution results, the whistleblower stands to make very large sums of money: it is based on a percentage of the total  government funds  which have been misused, in this case perhaps as much as $50 million.

  • The only reason we’re having such cold weather is because Arctic air has been forced further South by the methane gas produced by the corpses of Polar Bears that drowned due to global warming! I further say that this is George Bush’s fault for taking so long to put them on the endangered species list!—–CONEY
