Video: There are some nasty short- and long-term implications in control of the weather and climate. You and I have nothing to do with it, nor can we control it.
21 Jan 11 - Senior meteorologist Joe Bastardi of accuweather.com put out a great video yesterday explaining why this winter is so much colder than expected. Also, he thinks there may be many more cold winters on the way.
"Global temp falling even faster than I thought," says Bastardi. "There are some nasty short- and long-term implications in control of the weather and climate. You and I have nothing to do with it, nor can we control it."
"This something we have not seen before," Bastardi adds. NASA keeps lowering their sunspot numbers. Sunspots are now near where they were in the early 1800s during the Maunder Minimum.
I'm not saying we're headed into a little ice age, says Bastardi, but "this is alarming."
I firmly believe the long-term climate is going to be colder over the next 30 years, Bastardi warns. This La Nina will return next winter because of the cold PDO. If we're starting out as cold as it is right now, and with a double La Nina, "it's going to be cold all over."
"If this trend continues ... we'd better sit up and take notice!"
Joe Bastardi, the Glenn Beck of weather. LOL
Another reason to get our act together on energy policy that is abundant, and inexpensive.
Screw the environmentalists.
Now ain’t the time fer windmills.
LOL, I really like them both and anyone else devoted to truth in discovery of any subject matter.
You've got that right! We're facing a perfect storm on many fronts including global weather but not from Man's interference (at least as of this post).
We use energy in the summer and the winter for comfort. In the summer, we turn on our air conditioners.
If it gets colder, we’ll use less air conditioning in the summer, thus saving energy.
Plus, God’s in control, so only non-believers should be fretting.
Joe is one of the honest ones ... he just tells it like it is, not like Al Goreghoul wants it to be.
It might be a "wash" in some parts of the world but I don't see a big energy savings for mid latitudes or polar regions.
Worse, disruption of food production might further exacerbate rising food costs and even create severe shortages.
Can I get TWO guesses?? :)
La Nina has finally kicked in here in So Cal looks like a dry January and February.
When one considers that America is a food basket for world consumption, more in some places less in others, it has profound implications that the Northern Hemisphere is cooling. As the winters become longer, food production cycles must adjust, and if the folks planning the planting are still mired int he lies of the democrap party and al goreghoul, they will not only lose their shirts business wise, their faultering food production will be responsible for the deaths of millions! But of course, that reduction in population is but one of the legs of the progressives’ stool for a better world.

Who was counting sunspots in the early 1800s during the Maunder Minimum?
A branch of The Royal Society?
