By John Upton, grist.org Melting glaciers might have been the farthest thing from some lakeshore-dwelling Minnesotans’ and Manitobans’ minds these past few days. Twitter user Jill Coubrough, @coubroughCBC A home destroyed by an ice surge in Manitoba, Canada. Fast-growing sheets of ice, marching steadily forward as if out of a …

ROCHESTER MN: A record breaking 14″ of snow from a rare May snowstorm in Rochester Minnesota wasn’t enough to make this Canadian Goose leave the nest. “This photo was taken today by Greg Munson, Quarry Hill Nature Center naturalist in Rochester. The mother goose has been sitting on her 9 …
By Elmer Beauregard It is the second day of spring and most of Minnesota was below zero this morning but you wouldn’t know it from NOAA’s real-time temperature map. This was from 9:12 this morning when it was -14º F below zero in Bemidji Minnesota, according to this color chart …
By Elmer Beauregard A Tale of Two St. Patty’s Days Tomorrow is the first day of spring and we just got hit with a blizzard here in Minnesota, this will be the coldest March in decades. Just last year it was 80º F on St. Patrick’s Day, this year it …
Watch “The Boy Who Cried Warming” in full length at the website:
With dire proclamations of ice free Arctic summers vehemently debunked, the latest data indicates that both wildlife and the environment in earth’s coldest regions has not experienced the catastrophic devastation predicted as a result of man-made climate change.
Pajamasmedia Want to know why global warming alarmists and climate scientists in general have lost credibility with the American public? Consider a new study released today — and the unintentionally hilarious weasel words of its author — as Exhibit A. As reported in the San Francisco Chronicle today, a meteorologist …
In America coal powered plants scrub out the sulfur and pay huge fines for any sulfur emissions. What the geoengineers hope to do is then take the scrubbed out sulfur from the power plants, put it on planes and spray into the atmosphere to offset the global warming that the coal plants are causing…
…It seems like China has a more efficient system.
The melting record snow from the Rockies is causing all kinds of havoc with flooding. Al Gore is trying to blame it on Global Warming but I say you can blame it on a record cold and long winter.
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 term “Event” can only be attributed to “Weather” because it occurs over a short period of time. A tornado lasts for just a few minutes, so a Tornado can’t be a “Climate Event” it is a “Weather Event”.
When you have a “Weather Event” you have to look at the conditions at the time to see what caused it. This has been an unusually cool spring, if you are going to blame global warming shouldn’t it have been unusually warm?
“This is a good thing, because we should figure out if Global Warming is even happening before we start writing policy.” said Elmer Beauregard. “Its April 20th and we just got dumped on again, when are people going to stop believing the bozos!”
Local Detroit communities scrambled to send out salt trucks while warning that carbon-spewing trucks are destroying the planet, and local schools prepared to scare the kiddies with the movie Carbon Nation — assuming schools didn’t have a snow day.
It’s April 16, 2011 and here in Minnesota we woke up to a fresh coating of snow. I was hoping maybe to do some grilling this weekend but that seems ridiculous now. The lakes up north are still frozen and it looks like they won’t be opening up anytime soon. Opening fishing this year might have to be an ice fishing contest.
We just finished a nice thawing period here in Minnesota that came in the middle of February. We usually get this in the middle of January, we call it a “January thaw” and it happens pretty regularly, in fact 2011 will be the first year we haven’t had a January thaw in over 30 years.
(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 …
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.
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.
