Posted on 02/12/2014 11:26:53 AM PST by Ragnar54
(CNSNews.com) Lake Superior hasnt completely frozen over in two decades.
But an expert on Great Lakes ice says theres a very high likelihood that the three-quadrillion-gallon lake will soon be totally covered with ice thanks to this winters record-breaking cold.
The ice cover on the largest freshwater lake in the world hit a 20-year record of 91 percent on Feb. 5, 1994. ...
It’s not too late to send an expedition to the middle of the Great Lakes! hehe
It’s weather, not climate people.
If it’s cold, it’s just weather, and that’s not climate. If it’s warm, then it’s a climatological trend.
So sayeth Algore.
As soon as hell freezes over we know we have had it.
Why do you people always insist that catastrophic global warming actually result in it getting warmer? The nerve of some people. You idiot conservatives will wait until we all freeze to death to finally acknowledge global warming ....
Do you have to go to ice school to become an ice expert?
You have to graduate from junior ice school, first.
Time to relocate some of those Polar Bears off the ice chunks floating around Alaska i’ve seen pictures of.
I want to be the first to purchase a Polar Bear License in Michigan!
“Perhaps the warmists will scuba dive to find the warm water in Lake Superior. I’ll be happy to contribute some lead weights to the expedition.”
It’s far to deep for scuba gear, but I would be happy to donate some lead for their journey.
As soon as it does you know that there are loons dying to skate the length of it — never to be heard from again.
Gonna gets me a job as an “ice expert”.
Global Warming guru Algore wearing his ever present Nobel medal is seen here en-route to an important scientific conference in Nassau hosted by the UN/IPCC where he was to be the keynote speaker.
Topics on the agenda were to have included Finding a Good Bail Bondsman, Not ALL Criminal Lawyers Are Sharks, Changing Careers for Dummies, You Want Fries With That?, How To Encrypt Emails, The Best Prison Jobs, Getting Along With Your Cellmate and Getting Used to Sleeping On Your Back.
A sudden and unfortunate blast of what the scientist in charge of the conference termed global warming caused the meeting to be rescheduled until Algore can be thawed some time next Spring assuming there will BE one.
Our reporter has learned that the influential conservative web site Free Republic has launched a contribution drive to rent a freezer locker in which to keep Gore for the 10 to 15 years estimated it will take for the so-called mainstream media to begin covering the Climategate story.
Time to go fill up my SUV and drive around for awhile. Just doing my part to save the world.
Alert the Japs first so they can rescue! ! ! ! ! ! !
Yup. It’s all due to global warming.
No but it helps, especially if you want a ihd. (Ice doctorate)
That is the beauty of Global Climate Change. It is so much more flexible than Global Cooling or Global Warming ever were.
Is it warmer than usual today? That is proof of Global Climate Change.
Is it colder than usual today? That is proof of Global Climate Change.
Is it wetter than usual today? That is proof of Global Climate Change.
Is it dryer than usual today? That is proof of Global Climate Change.
Is it cloudier, less cloudy, windier, less windy? It doesn't matter! No matter what the weather happens to be, it is proof of Global Climate Change.
Everything is proof of Global Climate Change. Nothing is evidence against it.
Of course, it is all Bush's fault. Bush and those damned SUVs. Womyn and minorities will be hardest hit.
Thank Algore that a solution has been found. All we need is more central government control. This time, communism will work!
I like your thinking! I’ll gladly chip in!
Im a burning bush.
I’m a bleeding volcano.
“Expert” = Former Spurt under pressure.
You won. Yes, there is global warming. We spent so much money fixing it, we are now in a period of global cooling. Millions will die from starvation and hypothermia.
Hope you are proud. NOW FIX IT!!!
Actually, and somewhat paradoxically, the world’s levels of sea ice have been dropping in the past couple of months. Last year, they were actually above the 40-year average, but they recently dropped below it. Maybe it’s because the extreme cold weather has shifted south and the Arctic sea ice hasn’t expanded as much as during a normal winter.
Ah, a philosphy doctorate in ice.
see my tagline.
Talk about cabin-fever!!
Ah yes the irony. To each his own I suppose.
Every newsroom cube in America has this bullet list somewhere on their wall.
What is that? Are Satan’s minions pow-wowwing with the Children of the Corn?
“You have to graduate from junior ice school, first.”
I tried Ice School briefly, but when they made us sing the school song every day before classes, I couldn’t take it and dropped out.
Please....no more “Ice Ice Baby”!
“The ice cover on the largest freshwater lake in the world hit a 20-year record of 91 percent on Feb. 5, 1994. ...”
I thought the largest freshwater lake in the world was Lake Baikal in Siberia.
According to Wikipedia: Lake Baikal is the most voluminous freshwater lake in the world, containing roughly 20% of the world’s unfrozen surface fresh water, and at 1,642 m (5,387 ft), the deepest. It is also among the clearest of all lakes, and thought to be the world’s oldest lake at 25 million years. It is the 7th largest lake in the world by surface area.
I love it when journalist check their facts before writing an article.
I actually chilled my beer in Lake Superior in late August. This warm water being pushed below by winds is a crock. More sophistry by the global warming cult to try to make their fallacious theory fit the actual data.
We function in different ways, but we do function. Sure, some of us love to do 360s on the highway, some of us have frozen fish tosses, and some of us (but I will so NEVER!) even do the Polar Bear jumps.
Me, I decided to just embrace this winter which will be with us until probably after Easter. I found my cross-country ski boots, treated them for aging, and had my figure skates professionally sharpened. Why, you ask? Well, I figure if I can spend 40 minutes in 7 degree weather, with wind, to teach our dolt dog to heal in our neighborhood, I can spend 40 minutes doing something fun!
And we also have the Winter Olympics to watch...we feel so Superior to Sochi, because Sochi is so frikkin' warm! (we mask our jealousy well, doncha think?)
I think the warmist theory was for the oceans, especially the Pacific. As others have pointed out, it's crap.
lakes “flip” - once in the spring and once in the fall - having to do with the epilimnia and hypolimnia and water/temp density - Cold water is on top in the winter - warmer is below at the thermocline...in the spring - warmer comes back to the top - quite dramatically as whole lakes become very turbid for a period - I know this because fishing for trout obligates a knowledge of this
We really can't stand it either, just used to it. ...always in search of the AC.
The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
of the big lake they called “Gitche Gumee.”
Barnegat Bay here in central Jersey is about 90% frozen over.
WARM WATER IN LAKE SUPERIOR?????
hell, i have been swimming in the lake in august...
it is frigid damn cold in the hottest part of the summer..
let a lib go swimming in august and make them stay in for an hour...if they survive, slap them silly
Lake Gitchee Gumee doesn’t give up her dead, you liberal, 50 IQ, global-warming Nazis.
Thank you, Gordon Lightfoot.
I once saw a list of one hundred things blamed on climate change, everything from increased snowfall to drought to floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, warming, cooling, increased crime rates, migratory patterns shifting, etc.
It’s a catchall.
