Headed for a “year without a summer?” 10 Jun 09 – AccuWeather's Joe Bastardi expects areas from the northern Plains into the Northeast to have a "year without a summer." “The last time this happened was the Tamboro eruption in 1815 followed by a year without a summer in 1816,” says reader Charles Patrick. See Headed for a “year without a summer?”

Even if CO2 is rising, even if arctic ice has retreated, even if there has been a minor rise in ocean levels, there is reason to believe we may be on the verge of a new ice age which could dramatically change the planet. Crop failure and migration away from poles could begin a new era of famine and unrest.

I think it started about 10 years ago according to my natural gas consumption increases year after year!

Let's see if Mexico can hold back the waves of Norteamericanos streaming across their border.

In a few years, people here in the US won’t be able to afford to heat their homes.

I’m thinking 7 years ago. but I’m with you. What’s 3 years to argue about when we’re facing an ice age?

Silly silly non-believer. Don't you know Global Warming can still explain some places being unseasonably cold?

{flunky steps in, whispers in ear...}

Ahem. I'm sorry, I mis-spoke. What I meant to say is that Rapid Climate Change is upon us. This is the reason some areas may be getting colder. It really doesn't matter, send more money.

Sadly, probably not really satire...

So far, we haven’t had summer, and summer is half over. It’s at least 10-20 degrees below normal day and nightime temps.

Farmers have missed the seeding season. It’s going to be a bad year for grain crops, just watch prices hit all time highs this fall as harvest estimates fall well below average.

Stock up on your oats for your porridge now.

Get one of those plug in ones, vented or ventless. Or a chiminea.

I also hear soapstone, once it really heats up, stays hot.

If you read the article you will see that cold records are being set in Canada this month.

We spent the summer of 07 in the Canadian Maritime Provences and Newfoundland. All the locals up there said there was no “summer”. A lot of cold and wet. Lots of bergs in Newfoundland and much later than usual.
The summer of 06 we got snow in Alberta coming south from Alaska on a record early snowfall. All of our three year tour of N. America we heard of colder than usual weather from local people.

If this should happen, what of the climate models? Any “scientist” who relies on current models which failed to predict the cooling that has already occurred have forfeited their right to be taken seriously. If they want to be heeded, shouldn’t their models predicting the future trends at least comport with observable passed events and present trends?

>> And there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it.

Not true. You can compound your misery by driving a cardboard box with a rubberband motor, recycling everthing including the corn kernels in your ca-ca, and keeping your thermostat at 50F... in the winter. (95F in the summer.)

Meanwhile, Michelle Obama will fly her 757 to the next island over for vacation. Whenever she feels like it. But some of the ice age animals are more equal than some of the other ice age animals — for example, you.

With combustion one teaspoon of coal will heat an average house for about eight seconds, with fission one teaspoon of enriched uranium will heat the average home for nine months. I think nuclear power is the answer to the question no one is asking.

Weren’t they waiting for an ice age in the 70’s? I guess that means by 2039 or so they ought to start talking global warming again.

I’ve never seen anything like this before. It’s June 10th and the tree’s are still in budding stage, just barely putting out leaves. Fruit tree’s have just started blooming, not that there are any bees flying around in these arctic-like temps (4c right now (39f), when it should be around 21c or better 70f.)

I won’t disagree on the surface, though getting nuclear through the NRC,EPA,Huffpo process is near impossible. Dropping a load of coal by the house is still in play.

I didn’t really need to read it. My post was meant as an exclamation. I shoulda ended it with a “!”.

Global warming ended in the nineties. We are in a spooky cooling off period the last couple years and anyone not hypnotized by algore should be able to recognize it. I don’t really give a dam what the ice caps are doing. Also, here in the midwest, stuff is growing like I’ve never seen it grow before. Fertilizer and irrigation is almost optional now...once the thaw hit I mean.

"Here in Wisconsin we are struggling to hit 70."

Here in ND we haven't hit 70 yet. Almost one day last week, but it's never been warmer than 59 since, and rain, rain, rain. Farmers still haven't put there boats away from this springs floods. Same in Manitoba as well. Not much farming going on, only the hill tops.

It’s kinda funny(in an really sad way) that the EPA allows coal plants to release more radioactive waste into the atmosphere than nuclear plants. It turns out that there is uranium in that coal they burn.

"I don’t really give a dam what the ice caps are doing"

They certainly aren't melting. Ice caps have a hard time melting when it's -50 11 months of the year, contrary to what these enviro-retards claim.

They are too stupid to realize that ice caps shift from the winds which opens up large areas of the arctic ocean once in a while.

I don’t know what you can blame it on, but it’s obvious by looking at a nation wide temperature map over the last week that the jet stream is dipping down to southern border states. Usually it’s done doing that by early May, and is well up in Canada by now. The last time the Twin cities has had three strait sub 60 days before this week was 1951. That pool pass is getting lonely.

Upper midwest here, still waiting on the thaw. The weather gurus are predicting 80 on Sunday. We’ll see. We’ve been struggling to get to 60 daytime and it’s 40’s at night It makes my me sick to my stomach when I think Mangorepig has gotten rich on his global warming scam. If cap and trade kicks in, we won’t be able to afford our home.
