Monster snowstorms still spell global warming (Libs still trying to push the Global Warming hoax)
cnn ^ | 1/27/2011 | (Lib) Michio Kaku

The weather seems to be going berserk, with more snow dumped on our beleaguered Northeastern cities in a month than in a year, paralyzing business and our lives. Records are being broken even as we speak.

Common sense says that it's the freezing cold that is behind the freaky weather. But physics says otherwise.

Basically, snowstorms in this region arise from the collision of cold Arctic air from Canada moving south and bumping up against warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, causing water vapor to condense and freeze and then form snowstorms, which travel up the Northeast corridor.

Among many factors, the amount of snow dumped is largely driven by the amount of moisture in humid air and not so much the temperature, and this seems to go against common sense. (For example, if we are making ice cubes, the amount of water in the ice tray, not the temperature, determines how much ice we can make. If we crank down the temperature dial in our freezer, this simply makes the ice freeze faster but does not increase the amount of ice produced.)

Backpedal Bullstalin spew.

10 years ago the rhetoric (especially in England) was that children today would never see snowfall.

They are lying. They are playing on “our” fears. They are evil. They are unwilling to admit that they were wrong and deceptive.

Then wouldn't they be called floods instead of snowstorms?

If I see one more blame these monster storms on global warming I will tell the offending writer to take a shovel and go shovel the “global warming!”

Feels more like Global Cooling to me.

40 years ago, the same liberals were saying we were heading into a new (man-made) ice age. This must be it.

>> Michio Kaku: But physics says otherwise.

Sorry jackwagon, physics has little to do with climate voodoo.

Back in the winter of 1964-65, Syracuse, where I was then in elementary school, experienced a blizzard that shut down every school in central New York for a week. This in a town that has been dealing with heavy snowfall for hundreds of years.

The snow was more than three feet deep on level ground. I made a tunnel from our driveway to the center of the front yard; probably 20 feet. At the end of the tunnel I made a room, maybe five feet in diameter. The roof caved in the second day I worked on it.

In the winter of 1970 or ‘71, I walked to the school bus stop at -27°F.

This is nothing new. The State-Run Media is trying to exploit mass ignorance on the part of their audience.

I've lived in Central Florida for the last 18 years, and the last three winters have been the coldest that I can remember.

This year has been the coldest of all.

Every climate eventuality is due to global warming according to those who have invested in the crazy theory.

Too Hot- Global Warming

Too cold- Global Warming

Too much precipitation Global Warming

Not enough precipitation - Global Warming

Lots of Hurricanes Global Warming

Absence of Hurricanes Global Warming

So the Anthropogenic Global Warming people have the game rigged. I believe that each day that goes by, less and less people are buying into the nonsense.

Yes, but isn't it nice that all this global warming snowfall is doing negative feedback? White ground = increased reflection of solar radiation back to space = cooling.

Except - only man causes climate change. Only man can fix it.

CNN: "The weather seems to be going berserk"

Me: "You got some snow."

No, no no no no no. You had your chance when you said that the warm weather was being caused by global warming. You can’t have it both ways.
