I noticed on the NBC Climate Change Channel, they’ve given up on “warming” and now concentrate on “weather events due to climate change”.

Of course there is a “weather event” somewhere every day so it’s a winning strategy to progagandize to the masses.

Nobody to point out that these “weather events” have been occurring for millenia.....

No major hurricane strikes for eight years

Uh, wasn't Sandy a hurricane strike?

Wait, wasn't there some BS about the feds improperly upgrading it to a hurricane in order to open the disaster relief spigots?

Yep, lots of green tomatoes. Even my Sweet 100’s are smaller than usual. No eggplant, squash or cukes for that matter. Horrible growing season.

This has been the “Year Without A Summer” in much of the Midwest, but my TV keeps telling me that the planet is warming due to increased CO2 and humans.

Sad part is, the people pimping this KNOW that a very large percentage will believe ANYTHING if it comes from Justin Beeber’s twitter account, or the Magic Glowing Box in the living room.

Heh, heh, heh, our good Lord has a “wicked” sense of humor doesn’t He....

I don’t know how these slyentists ever thought they could hope to project anything like this for an entity that has so many mighty factors slopping around wildly in it... and I mean, forget supernatural guidance for a moment, though I do return to it and know that this world WILL be here and WILL support what God wants it for, right to the very end.

Sandy was a big storm because of where it hit not how bad a storm it was. It was a decent hurricane but it slammed into a dense target of homes and businesses.

First the GOOD NEWS....

Dramatic rise in plant growth in world's deserts could be down to rising CO2 levels

Researchers studied satellite images between 1982 and 2010 Regions which have seen a rise in plant growth include Africa, the Middle East and the Australian outback.

Carbon dioxide acts as an insulator and causes temperatures to rise but it also vital for plant growth

And now the BAD NEWS....

FEMA has contracted with governments in Mongolia, Central Sahara Desert Area, and Saudi Arabia to construct re-education camps... China has offered a number of "ghost cities" to house those in transit prior to processing.

“Sandy” was a tropical storm by the time it touched down on land in the US, not a hurricane.

Did it even have hurricane-force winds when it made landfall? I thought it had already fallen below the threshold when it hit land.

Major hurricane strike means a Cat 3. Ike and Sandy were not Cat 3 but still put a major hurtin’ where they made landfall. Shows a problem with the current rating system.

8 ft corn stalks, but zero corn! (SF South Bay)

Huge front-page article on Weds this week about the horrors of global warming and the damage it is already causing in California (8 inch rise in water level at the Golden Gate; raging forest fires).

Then, just one day later, huge front page article about this abnormally cold August in the Bay Area.

How do these people prevent their heads from exploding? Maybe tight tin-foil hats contain the bursts?

Sandy wasn’t a Hurricane when it hit.

It was bad only because it hit during a close full moon which boosted the High Tide.

It also clashed and combined with another large storm

If Sandy hit a day earlier or later it probably would have been forgotten already

They just keep repeating the lie. That combined with indoctrination the schools will breed a population of true believers in short order.

Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....

...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...

....to increase it's magnetic field....

and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....

(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.

The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.

Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

What we have to worry about is the shifting of the earth’s magnetic poles due to changes of the inner core.

Uh, wasn't Sandy a hurricane strike?

It was a cat 1. At least one measurement verified at land site, the anemometer on top of a bridge measured 75 mph sustained but that doesn't even matter. There were aircraft wind measurements of 80 mph offshore and as long as there are sustained hurricane winds somewhere it counts as a hurricane.

A major hurricane is cat 3 and Sandy was not a major hurricane in terms of wind. The storm surge was similar to some major hurricanes, but that was just bad timing and funneling effects.

NBC Climate Change Channel [has] given up on “warming” and now concentrate on "weather events due to climate change"

Note, too, how cataclysmic historical events have now been changed. They used to be caused by meteor hits, volcanic eruptions, and floods. Now they are caused by "Climate change" due to these events.

We had several weeks of near-record highs in New Jersey. Then as if someone threw a switch we had a week of October, followed by a more or less return to late summer normal.

By the time Sandy made landfall it had gone below hurricane force. But combining with a second land based storm at the moon-tide time caused it to wreak as much havoc as a full hurricane.

I don't think Sandy was any worse than a Category 2, but the area it hit was just very vulnerable.
