Meteorologist: 'We've Forgotten How to Be Cold' February 17, 2014 - 5:40 PM By Melanie Hunter
(CNSNews.com) - J. Marshall Shepherd, former head of the American Meteorological Society, told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday that people have "forgotten how to be cold or deal with snowstorms," because there are so few big storms "and that is because of climate warming."
"I'm not quite ready to say that this snowstorm we saw this week or last week is caused by global warming or climate change, but one thing I will emphasize, I think we're forgotten how to be cold or deal with snowstorms, because we're seeing so few of these big storms like we've seen, and that probably is because of climate warming," said Shepherd.
Host Bob Schieffer asked Shepherd whether the recent spate of storms that have hit the East Coast was the result of "things that are happening here on earth."
"Yeah, yeah, a couple of things, let me say about that. When we get winter weather, cold conditions, you know, you've got some that will say, 'Well, what are you guys worried about climate change or global warming? I mean, it's -- it's cold and snowing.' And I'll say, 'You know, it's winter. It's January or February. We get snowstorms.' That's important.That's like saying, because it's night time, the sun doesn't exist anymore," Shepherd said.
"On the other hand, though, there is evidence -- there's some scientific literature that suggests that jet stream patterns can be affected by the amplified warming that we're seeing up in the Arctic because of climate change or global warming," he said.

tell that to my brass monkey
You have to be a complete idiot to believe what this jackass said.
I love how they claim the opposition is so ignorant and then they use supposed “evidence” like this?
You have to be a complete idiot to believe what this jackass said.
Or a liberal will believe it. Those with their head in the sand thinking the world is warming will see winter storms with horror.
And yet I wonder, how does one ‘forget’ how to be ‘cold’?
What the heck kind of crap are they spinning now?
Yes! Confiscating guns, eliminating the first and second amendment, taxing the rich to oblivion and giving the money to to third world dictators, brownouts and giving amnesty to 30 million illegals will solve everything!
I know how to deal with cold, I got out of Michigan and moved to North Carolina, and then to Texas...
“Host Bob Schieffer asked Shepherd whether the recent spate of storms that have hit the East Coast was the result of “things that are happening here on earth.”
As opposed to what, Mr Schieffer? Things happening on Mars? Or, perhaps, Alpha Centauri?
Years from now people (if we keep our republic) will be watching these shows (in synopsis) for fun. Much the way we watch Gone With the Wind.
THese people will appear as vapid to those hopefully fortunate ‘folks’ as they do to any logical viewer.
It’s reallylike the CIA staffer when he says to Mendez in ‘Argo’ going in to see the Admin official, “brace yourself. It’s like talking to the muppets”
War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength, Warming is Cooling...
On the bright side, your brass monkey is now qualified to be a republican senator...
What garbage. I tire of idiots.
As I recall it was pretty cold last year too. And the year before that, and the year before that. But every year liberals forget the previous year and claim it’s never been this cold before.
mister shepherd... you are a liar. You agreed in print with those at east anglia when they warned 10 years ago that children in the world would grow up without knowing what snow was. You swore that WINTER was going to be a thing relegated to history books... you are a low life scumbag lying communist.
Worse than stuck on stupid, he doesn’t follow the weather!
The arctic oscillation had been positive for 20 years but is trending back to negative... Positive means no arctic out breaks... They’re Baaaack!
sooo i can infer that if global warming actually existed we might stand a chance to elect some people fully equipped to deal with the real problems besetting this country
It is winter in America...so there is more snow than usual, great for the ski resorts...this gives the various delightful weather gals and guys something to talk about...and judging by the winter weather in our east, I expect the summer storms will get lots of attention also. Obama doesn’t want anyone to dwell on the Obamacare repeals this year or his failure on the promised jobs spiel that worked out as well as Obamacare or that he is circumventing congress who represent the people...hummmmm don’t dwell on any of that. Climate change, already thrown out by Congress, is his ploy of the week....I think the fraud has finally painted himself into a corner...whatever, he has trashed the Constitution, breaking his oath to protect it and we citizens....
My mom called from Phoenix yesterday. Told me some ridiculous story about it approaching 90 degrees. Way to rub it in mom.
The gig is up. STFU already about the scam called “Global Warming”
But seriesly, I grew up in a four season zone.. And one of them was winter.. Sometimes really cold ones,, sometimes not too bad.. As long as the fish bit.. It was endurable.
I remember a year or two where we got walloped or deep freezed or both .. We survived.
Chopping wood and shoveling snow is good cardio yaknow.
It’s a shame we have become so dependent on others and their services.. Being prepared is the last thing many are thinking of.
This is like the winter of 2011 which is like the winter of 1985 which is like the winter of 1977 ... get the picture?
Wait! I thought the Warmers were trying to tell us the big storms we've been getting were because of AGW. After all, The Weather Channel is naming almost every storm that comes along so they can push the global warming scam.
I guess it's too difficult for them to keep their stories straight.
He sounds like the rental physicist that CBS uses from NYU. They drag him out for floods, snow storms, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, boats sinking on the river, etc. and he manages to tie them all into climate change (man made global warming) as a self acclaimed expert on everything.
If the Kenyan’s supporters thought it was cold this winter, they ain’t seen nothing yet. Wait until next winter when their boy, Barry, and his EPA Nazis drive up the price of electricity and fuel by 80%. They might want to consider gathering a lot of wood this summer and stacking it in their caves.
This meteorologist is an embarrassment to him self and to his profession. He should be drummed out. The guy is a misinformed idiot.
Joe Bastardi has been hinting at the potential for multiple frigid winters ala late 70s.
If people have “forgotten how to ce cold” it’s because the LMSM has been promising them for years that the days of cold winters were over.
They always pull something out to prove its warming”. Going in circles
“people have ‘forgotten how to be cold or deal with snowstorms,’”
I think that’s true, although nothing to do with global warming. Seems that people have become incredibly wussified. The storms that are getting people’s panties in a wad this year were just normal winter days when I was growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s.
I recall vividly those winters we had in the 70's -- much worse than this year if you can believe that -- when all the media were talking about the new Ice Age comming because of air pollution, and the young morons were sucking it up hook, line and sinker.
No different than 500 years eariler when every crop failure or plague or harsh weather was blamed on Witches. So they burned the Witches.
There are always new generations young morons comming along and the hustlers, just like 500 years ago, will always find 'Witches' to blame thing on.
CO2 is just the modern day Witch.
I was 14 and haven’t forgotten.
It was 18 degrees this afternoon when I took the dog out for a walk in the woods. I put on a light weight jacket over my sweat shirt. I guess I’ve forgotten how to be cold. Must have gotten used to it after all the single digit weather we’ve had.
What a maroon!!
I hope that he's not a real meteorologist because if he is, I just may turn in my degree.
This is not even coherent.
tell that to my brass monkey
That gave me a great laugh!
Too bad most people wouldn’t understand.

I feel so ashamed. As a Native Texan, at 71, that’s the type of clothing I wear when it’s in the 50s outside! ....I like the temps to be 80-95*!!!
When younger, I tramped around in 12 inch snow while rabbit hunting. I’ve been duck hunting when it was 5* and wind chill around -40*. I’ve been skiing in NM and COL (where at Keystone the temp was -24* at the peak). ....Just can’t handle the cold temp anymore, as I’ve lost a lot of the subcutaneous fat layer that insulates.
“Too bad most people wouldnt understand.”
I looked it up a couple years ago, along with other “it’s so cold that...” sayings to figure out their sources and meanings. It is debatable on many of them what the original meaning was!
that's why they blame the hoax global warming on co2
global warming is a hoax
factories have been emitting co2 for 200 years. yet there's been no corresponding warming as predicted by their lame brain global warming theory. if the stupid AGW theory were true then sea levels would have risen 60 feet in those 200 years due to melting ice caps. ice caps growing, it's getting colder . but democrats actually believe the news media when they say the cold is caused by global warming (the latest ridiculous spin)
What’s happened to the guy here on FR, who used to buy into all the Gore bull warming nonsense? His name is Cogitator, if I recall correctly. Pinging Cogitator
Pretty sure this Wisconsin Gal has it down, Mister! This winter has been BRUTAL and I’ve never gotten stuck once, and the only minor issue was a frozen sink in the lower bathroom. Pipes are fine when they thaw out - it’s plumbed wrong; soon to be fixed.
In the past five years we’ve had two winters with 100+ inches of snow. This winter it’s snowed every week since November - just enough to be annoying, 1-3” at a time, but we’re over 50” so far...with ice on the way this week! Then we had the Polar Vortex with wind chills -50 degrees. I closed my store 4x in January, which has never happened before.
Pretty sure I KNOW how to be cold. What a doofus.
