WILMINGTON, N.Y. – A Memorial Day weekend storm has dropped three feet of snow on a New York ski mountain near the Vermont boarder. Whiteface Mountain spokesman Jon Lundin says 36 inches of white powder has blanketed the nearly 5,000-foot tall mountain in the Adirondacks. That has forced the Olympic …

Watch “The Boy Who Cried Warming” in full length at the website:
Last Thursday, in town hall held in Derry, New Hampshire, Romney argued that carbon emissions shouldn’t be regulated as pollutants by the Environmental Protection Agency. The candidate’s admission that “I don’t think carbon is a pollutant in the sense of harming our bodies” was caught on tape by Think Progress and, yesterday, Politico reignited debate about his limited climate change support. The remark also revived the long-running liberal charge that Mitt Romney paradoxically believes in global warming yet won’t do anything to help combat it.
The reality is despite all of his efforts to con people into believing a trace gas in the atmosphere is causing the planet to warm, fewer and fewer are buying it.
A storm that has prompted a tornado watch across Nebraska and Kansas today also left 2 to 4 inches of snow in the Rocky Mountains, said Joe Ramey, a weather service meteorologist in Grand Junction, Colorado.
The global warming lie is over ….. get on with your next big lie. You got caught red handed manipulating data so why in the hell would we believe anything else you have to say in this matter…… WE DON”T!
(CNN) – An icy cold front that swept through northern Mexico over the weekend left 65 zoo animals dead, the zoo’s owner told CNN on Monday. Parrots, crocodiles and peacocks were among the victims of temperatures that dropped as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 15 degrees Celsius) early Saturday …
Gore also indicated that he believes a rise in global temperatures is creating “all sorts of havoc,” from hotter dry spells to colder winters and ever more violent storms. This is even endangering certain species of animals and leading to forest fires and floods.

While opinions about climate change vary greatly, even among experts in climate science, the consensus is that short-range weather events have little to do with the climate change debate.
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.
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.

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.
