I am in the Texas Hill Country for Christmas. Saw some of that “Global Warming/Climate Change/Watzit Called today. I-35 north of Denton is a mess, Oklahoma City is almost shut down.
I'm just south of Denton. Tried to run to the store a couple hours ago, but the roads are already to bad with heavy snow turning to ice. Should clear up tomorrow, but white Christmases used to be extremely rare.
BTW, it's important for critics to get it right. The story is wrong to attach the "hide the decline" comment from the leaked emails to the cooling in recent years. The email in question was from '98 or '99, I think. At that point there had been warming in recent years. The "hide the decline" comment referred not measured temperatures, but rather to the fact that the "proxies" (especially tree ring measuremenets) warmists had used for pre-measured temperatures were then showing declining temperatures at a point when global temperatures were actually going up. IOW they were trying to hide the fact that their proxies did not accurately reflect global temperatures by hiding the decline in the proxy data.
