This summer’s extreme global weather raised fears of a “Coming Food Crisis,” as CAP’s John D. Podesta and Jake Caldwell warned in Foreign Policy: “Global food security is stretched to the breaking point, and Russia’s fires and Pakistan’s floods are making a bad situation worse.” Earlier this month I discussed how, in fact, “Extreme weather events helped drive food prices to record highs.” Back then, experts were worried about food riots. Now they are happening.
But the second is global warming. This also seems to violate common sense, but realize that global warming can heat the oceans and generate more moisture, which in turn can drive larger storms. Last year was, in fact, tied with 2005 as the hottest year recorded since 1880, when precise measurements began.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused our members and fans. It was some sort of virus that took place in our “Techno Closet” and caused a blockage. But don’t worry we got out the techno plungers and got the data flowing again. Weather this virus was real or virtual it sure didn’t smell very good in there.

By Richard Ingham (AFP) PARIS — From being a marginal and even mocked issue, climate-change litigation is fast emerging as a new frontier of law where some believe hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake. Compensation for losses inflicted by man-made global warming would be jaw-dropping, a payout that …
this winter seems especially brutal, scientists say you’re right. ABC News contacted 10 climate scientists to ask their take, if an extreme winter like the one we’re having is the way of the future. The consensus? Global warming is playing a role by shifting weather patterns in unpredictable ways. Many say the forecast for the future calls for record-breaking precipitation and extreme temperatures year round. And that means winters with more snow.
The thing that bugs me about these charts that show how “bad” global warming is, is that they zoom in extremely close to exaggerate how bad the problem is. If you look at the left side of the chart they are measuring in tenths of a degree. That is why I made the above chart which zooms out and shows more the earth’s temperature range.

The pressure has been mounting. The public doubt about global warming has been increasing in recent years given Climategate, and how promises of warm snowless winters failed. After cold and snowy winters in 2007/08 and 2008/09, the winter of 2009/10 was the coldest ever in parts of the southeast, and in parts of Siberia and the coldest since 1977/78 or 1962/63 in many parts of the United States, Europe and Asia. This past December was the second coldest in the entire Central England Temperature record extending back to 1659. It was the coldest ever December in diverse locations like Ireland, Sweden, and Florida. Reluctantly, alarmists changed their tune and the promise of warm and snowless winters as recent as 4 years ago morphed into global warming means cold and snowy winters.

Snow and ice had created traffic hazards in the Deep South, the Northeast was being walloped by a blizzard-like storm on Wednesday, and snow was on the ground in every state (even Hawaii) with the single exception of Florida. The time seemed right for another report on global warming.

The South just isn’t prepared for a quick clean up after a major snow storm. And the temperatures continue to drop below freezing every night this week. It doesn’t make economic sense for Atlanta to house large fleets of snow plows and tons of salt and gravel. But residents need it this week.
The result means victory for about 30 energy companies that were being sued by Mississippi homeowners who claimed that by emitting greenhouse gases, the companies helped cause global warming and exacerbated Katrina’s wrath.
While Sarah Palin is castigated for using an image of crosshairs targeting political districts, leftists produce violent and bloody films that depict children being liquidated in an orgy of blood and guts for not toeing the line on the political dogma of man-made global warming.
