Don’t you know anything big girl?

Warm temperatures cause cooling. The cooler it gets, the worse global warming becomes.

And just because you’re cold does not mean others are not feeling warm.

The only thing great about SoCal is the weather. Sorry, those of you who will be bbq’ing in parkas. Not fair. Here at the beach it will be overcast and humid until noon and then sunny. In the 70s and pleasant. Yeah, I know, go do something to myself.... But look at the state gov we have to deal with here.

I can't wait for the doublethink and sophistry that will be used to like this cooler weather to the global warming hoax.

CO2 makes up less than 0.04% of the earth's atmosphere... 33 molecules of CO2 for every 85,800 molecules of air. 32 of those CO2 molecules are from totally natural sources and only one molecule of CO2 in every 85,800 molecules of air is from human activity. To believe the global warming hoax you have to subscribe to the notion that molecular level changes in a single component of the atmosphere can cause catastrophic change in the earth's climate and that the variations in solar output or other natural inputs into out climate have no net effect.

Going down into the high 40's tonight here in South Jersey. We darn near lost the blueberry crop about a week ago when it got close to 32.

By the end of next week we are suppose to be in the 80's.

By tradition our family always goes swimming on Memorial Day. I've swam in some darn cold water in years past, but I ain't going in the water this Memorial Day.

Frost advisory here in western PA tonight. We set a record for lowest high temperature today.

This is why I follow my Dad's advice. Never plant tomatoes till the original Memorial Day (the 31st, not the Monday holiday).

How does carbon dioxide cause global warming? (Lansing State Journal, August 31, 1994)

Fossil fuels such as gasoline, methane and propane contain mostly carbon. When these fuels are burned, they react with oxygen and produce carbon dioxide.

Because of our heavy use of fossil fuels, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has been increasing since the industrial revolution. The destruction of forests which use carbon dioxide also contributes to the increase in carbon dioxide.

Most of the light energy from the sun is emitted in wavelengths shorter than 4,000 nanometers (.000004 meters). The heat energy released from the earth, however, is released in wavelengths longer than 4,000 nanometers. Carbon dioxide doesn't absorb the energy from the sun, but it does absorb some of the heat energy released from the earth. When a molecule of carbon dioxide absorbs heat energy, it goes into an excited unstable state. It can become stable again by releasing the energy it absorbed. Some of the released energy will go back to the earth and some will go out into space.

So in effect, carbon dioxide lets the light energy in, but doesn't let all of the heat energy out, similar to a greenhouse.

Currently, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is increasing at the rate of about one part per million per year. If this continues, some meteorologists expect that the average temperature of the earth will increase by about 2.5 degrees Celsius. This doesn't sound like much, but it could be enough to cause glaciers to melt, which would cause coastal flooding.

Warmth Is In The Air
(parody of John Paul Young’s, “Love Is In The Air.”)

Warmth is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Warmth is in the air
Every sight and every sound

And I don’t know if I’m being foolish
Don’t know if I’m being wise
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I look in Al’s eyes

Warmth is in the air
In the whisper of the trees
Warmth is in the air
In the thunder of the sea

And I don’t know if I’m just dreaming
Don’t know if I feel sane
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I call out Al’s name

(Chorus)
Warmth is in the air
Warmth is in the air
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Warmth is in the air
In the rising of the sun
Warmth is in the air
When the day is nearly done

And I don’t know if it’s an illusion
Don’t know if I see it true
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I reach out for you

Warmth is in the air
Every sight and every sound
And I don’t know if I’m being foolish
Don’t know if I’m being wise

But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I look in Al’s eyes

It was 38 degrees here at 5:30am. I'm 35 miles SW of Chicago.

This weather's been crazy. We went from running the furnace to turning on the AC in less than two days, then right back to running the furnace to stay warm.

Global warming my a$$.

Wonder if the cold/snow will hit Maryland. With the corrupt, marxist Democrats ruining (er, running), the state, you have “Snow jobs” 24/7, on its few remaining sane citizens.

Central WI. One in this area allways planted or set outside cold sensitive plants tomatoes, melons etc after traditional Memorial Day (May 30th). This morning 7am 5/24/13 it was 31 deg. Looks like it might be safe but we’ve had frosts here come as late as June 16th and the first pre fall frost Aug 26th and that’s when we were in the warm cycle

'Warm temperatures cause cooling. The cooler it gets, the worse global warming becomes.' And just because you’re cold does not mean others are not feeling warm.

shoot sometimes cold makes eco wackos downright feverish....it sets em off...

Or maybe feverish is just their natural state...they do do a lot of twisting and turning and suchlike...and we all know that kind of gyratin' causes friction which releases heat....and......so.....

Red Hampshire tourist bureaus have been slobbering all week about the MONEY they will be bringing in this Memorial Day weekend...the beach, the mountains, the tourist traps...even pro-Islam Governor Hassan had a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open up FOUR new 'E-Z Pass' lanes on the interstate to help funnel flush with cash people from Massachusetts and New York into the state.

One small problem...rain, wind, temps in the upper 30's to mid 40's...maybe even some SNOW above 2500 feet.

Tourist bounty FAIL...no 9% meal and lodging sales tax for you, Reds...LOL!

Oh...BAD weekend for setting out your vegetable plants, too.

AP Washington: Obama meets with reporters in the Rose Garden Thursday, as he revealed a comprehensive study from the White House Weather Czar. The study indicated tornadoes are not only bad mumbo, but are definitely caused by exhaust gas and the decline in the numbers of east coast blowfish.

Going down into the high 40's tonight here in South Jersey. By the end of next week we are suppose to be in the 80's.

It's been cooler than normal here in Dallas - Ft Worth, too. Last year this time, we were already getting broiled alive. I think we saw mid 80s today, and overnight temps will be really comfortable.

I've read a lot of scientific articles recently that say we're likely entering a period of global cooling that could last thirty years or more, due to inactivity on the sun. Just a little cooler in the nation's hot spots will be welcome for all kinds of reasons, but colder areas of the country could experience brutally harsh winters that stretch right up to the summer months.

Heck, we might even see mass immigration from Canada if it gets much colder.
