Report: Extreme South Jersey weather could be caused by global warming
Gloucester County Times ^ | August 2, 2012 | By Andy Polhamus

Climate change has come to New Jersey, according to Environment New Jersey, a statewide environmental advocacy group.

The organization released a report Thursday that attributes this year’s extreme weather to global warming.

“Certainly, we have a problem on our hands,” said Matt Elliott, a representative from Environment New Jersey. “We need to do everything we can to cut carbon pollution today.”

I suggest surgical castration and hysterectomies for all the earth worshipers.

Otherwise I’ll be forced to assume that they really don’t care about the earth and open a power plant that burns tires.

My fault. I’ve been driving my SUV around South Jersey quite a bit lately. :^)

"Devastating floods" and they show a road partly washed out. Roads never washed out before? The fact is that weather patterns like heavy rains are natural. Droughts are natural although global warming could theoretically add a degree or two to the high some days. Whether there is actual global warming or not we will always have bad weather and that's why they have to unclog culverts so the road doesn't wash out, etc.

Global warming is just the latest excuse to whine and be lazy.

Its damn dry in southern Michigan but its not the first time. The last good drought like this was 20 or 25 years ago. I doubt we’ve gotten more than an inch and a half of rain since early June. That was the last time I mowed my lawn.

I visit New Jersey on a regular basis. I’ve noticed that, back in March, it started getting warmer, and has been getting steadily warmer each month thereafter. If my hunch is right, it will stay warm until late September, followed by a cooling trend for the next several months after that.

I am reminded of a girl I knew who was from New Jersey.

Pulling her chain a little bit after listening to her brag for a while about some New Jersey thing, I said, “Oh, I’ve heard you New York girls like to party.”

“I AIN’T FROM NEW YORK! I’S FROM JERSEY! THEM NEW YORK GIRLS IS ALL HOES!”

This gave me much glee.

Is extreme South Jersey near Philly or Delaware?

Good example of a stuck pattern, but that will change within weeks. The La Nina is the main cause. Of course when back when there were lots of El Ninos (late 90’s) the global warming catastrophe peer reviewed papers said there would be lots of El Nino and you and I (on the east coast) would have storm after storm. Now the pattern changed to favor La Nina and North American drought, so the catastrophe papers will only pass peer review if they predict more drought.

This is very similar to the way the drought was 20+ years ago. Rain all around but not right here. Its been bone dry here and Tiger games in Detroit have been rained out.

That would be quite a feat, considering that the Earth has been cooling for the past 2000 years.

The IPCC global "hockey stick" warming hoax was based on proven fraudulent tree-ring data.

Plus, extreme weather is normal.

Extreme weather is an integral part of the Earth’s climate

I know this is only anecdotal evidence but for over 60 years I've noticed that our climate changes about every 3 months. During June, July and August it gets really hot. Then for the next 3 months it gets mild and pleasant. After that the climate changes to really cold for 3 months. Then for the next 3 months it get pleasant again. Then it changes back to hot. It's almost like there's a cycle to it. Perhaps the government could spend some of those trillions of dollars to study this to find out how we are responsible for it.

Begin by shutting your hysterical, pathetic trap. The bogus carbon crusade is over, jackwagon.

It’s interesting how the global warming “science” works.

If it’s very cold outside that’s not climate change, it’s just the weather, but if it’s very warm, that’s global warming climate change.

2005: You see, we told you so the warm winter and hot summer prove global warming is real

2010: The cold winter and cool summer prove nothing because it is weather not climate

2011: The record cold winter and cool summer prove global warming is causing global cooling

2012: You see, we told you the warm winter and hot summer prove global warming is real

I sure thought it was a hot summer combined with having the deleware bay on one side and the ocean on the other, but okay.

I can vouch that the weather has been ominous here. I’ve never seen anything like it around here. Foolish to put the blame on human activity though. Mother Nature can be very cruel at times. We are passengers on this planet, sometimes the ride gets bumpy, live with it because there is only one alternative.
