Skip to comments.Global warming blamed for unusual cold spell
Posted on 02/14/2008 1:56:26 PM PST by chessplayer
As Hong Kong shivers through its second-longest cold spell since 1885, scientists point to global warming to explain the abnormal cold weather phenomenon worldwide.
"We are seeing extremely unusual weather across the world," said polar researcher Rebecca Lee Lok-sze.

ROFL LOL LOL LOL
COLD FREEZING WEATHER blamed on global warming...uh huh uh huh
I have just noticed we had two more minutes of daylight today than yesterday. Darn global warming.
These global warming druids never give up, do they? Like someone stated on this forum last week, they will not stop until they are stopped.
In other words global warming is about warming when it’s warming and cooling when it’s cooling and grants when grants are being given out.
I agree. It is the perfect scientific theory because it cannot be falsified and dissenters can be burned at the academic stake. It is also a perfect mechanism for Marxism. To the left, GW is the second coming of Marxism and a cry of alarm similar to a war. GW will provide the basis to shred the constitution.
As for “polar researcher” Lok-Sze, she has a certificate in commercial design;
New!!: Dr. John Ray's
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
Good point. It is like a religion to those idiots. And Gore is the Great Pumpkin leading the charge.
I have this wart that has been around for years, is it too late to blame it on global warming?
I saw this coming a long time ago.
Surprised it took this long.
Riddle me this BatMan, isn’t it still winter in the Northern Hemispher?
Many are hack scientist, if they don’t scream GW, no grants, no paycheck. Can you say “May I supersize that for you sir”
“I have this wart that has been around for years, is it too late to blame it on global warming?”
Nope. It`s never too late.

You are going to be hearing less and less from these people about global warming and more and more about man-caused “climate change”. The whole point is to convince enough people that we are affecting the climate, allowing them to pass laws to the point that our laws will be micromanaged.
But we will still get 500 channels to appease us.
Libs O’the world are so darned predictable. Too bad we conservatives are dumb enough to let them get away with it. What amazes me is the apparent lack of knowledge of the theory of EM wave dispersion/absorption that is extant in the warming community. This is the basis of their CO2 nonsense, and few - if any, could answer some simple question on the subject correctly. Perhaps these folks weren’t the A students in electromagnetics.
It’s so easy to be a Liberal. You don’t have to think. You don’t have to understand. All you have to do is memorize your liberal catechism (”All weather is caused by global warming”, etc.) and get very, very angry if anyone disagrees with you.
And all 500 channels devoted to man-made global warming.
Devoting more than half of her lifetimeto photography, design, writing and filming,art appears to be in the blood of Dr RebeccaLee Lok-sze.An early graduate in Commercial Designin 1964, Dr Lee said she turned tocommercial design in order to make a living.Having founded her own design companyat a time when Hong Kong was rich incommercial opportunity,
and drought is caused by to much rain
In 1650 I bet King Louis XIV blamed the “little ice age” on Global climate change.
Did you flunk history Gore !!!!!
I think global climate change is causing their insanity.
Got it. Pay me now/pay me later.
And if the effect keeps increasing at this rate, we'll be having 24 hours of daylight by December.
IOW, this has happened before, but this time it's because of global warming.
“Rebecca Lee Lok-sze”
He He He - I can’t take it...!!
Come January, 2009 we are likely to have a government that embraces the global warming threat and that will be eager to enact comprehensive legislation to combat it. And we will have a president who will gladly sign off on anything passed. And this same president and congress will nominate and confirm judges who will affirm the constitutionality of anything they pass.
Come next January we are likely to become witnesses to the de facto end of the American experiment. The outward form may persist but the heart will have been torn out of it and replaced by - what? People will vote for change and they will get their wish. May God help us.
Put your hands over your ears. Go NAHNAHNAHNAHNAH and deal with it. Don’t like the weather today.......too frikkin bad! It’ll change.
This *age-old* arguement is getting rather, well, old.
Love her qualifications for Polar Researcher. She is a professor of interior design...ruk ruk ruk....I guess that makes me as much an expert as her.
You know, these people are slippery - They bring up a topic and before you can refute it they introduce a new one.
the Hole in the Ozone appears to have returned to normal. Anybody hear about that front page News?
I guess now that Ozone hole is back to the right size we can forget about all this global warming poop. Right?
Why is a religion article in breaking news?
I’m with you...bring back the hole in the ozone scare...it was much easier giving up my Right Guard.
The earth is ONLY about 75% water and the other 25% MIGHT be about 1% populated.
But, YEAH... We can make an IMPACT! Change those lightbulbs people!!
I wish we had global warming.
It has been snowing since 7am and it is about 28 degrees.
I live in southern California.
anyone notice with a world wide record of total failure, socialism and communism seems to have lost it’s allure or appeal to many young secularists. Despite this, the left’s crazy compulsion for a kind of cosmic justice remains largely unfilled. It makes sense that it was only a matter of time before a new “religion” for the left stepped to take it’s place..
How do they keep getting away with this nonsense?
Expert after expert has tried to debunk man-made global warming, but the press continues to print the most ridiculous articles supporting it.
Actually, I noticed this at least a year ago, maybe longer. They stopped using the term "global warming" and now, almost exclusively, use "climate change". That way, whatever way the "climate changes", it's our fault.
I also think that it was embarassing to have "global warming" be the punchline for a joke every time you were up to you rear end in snow.
Haven’t had balmy 28F in 3 weeks. By the way, the snow that fell here in November is still on the ground. You poor baby!
Ridiculous indeed since we are entering a cyclic mini ice age.
Black is white. Up is down. Hot is cold. Bull$hit is ice cream.
It will be dark tonight, getting gradually lighter toward morning - must be global warming.
And I think we can probably assign a name to those who do it:
We have been in an Ice Age all along. This is an Ice Age. The presence of ice at both polar regions is the main indicator. Most of the time we are not in an Ice Age and there is no ice. But, now there is ice, so . . . Ice Age.
Greenpeace echoed the view, saying mainland scientists had also concluded that the extreme cold weather in China was triggered by climate change. "This does not only cause an increase in global warming but also causes extreme weather patterns," said campaigner Edward Chan.
