    Bill de Blasio on Blizzard Bust: ‘Better Safe Than Sorry’ By Jillian Jorgensen | 01/27/15 8:29am After a much-hyped blizzard-that-wasn’t, Mayor Bill de Blasio said this morning that he was glad the city had prepared for a worse storm and that New York would be getting back to normal quickly. “We thought we were going to get something much bigger,” Mr. de Blasio told CNN “New Day” anchor Chris Cuomo (who happens to be the brother of Gov. Andrew Cuomo). Forecasts of two or even three feet of snow led Mr. de Blasio and Mr. Cuomo to essentially shut the...

    The U.S. has caused more global warming than any other country. Here’s how the Earth will get its revenge.Last year, we learned what is probably the worst global warming news yet — that we may have irrevocably destabilized the massive ice sheet of West Antarctica, which contains the equivalent of nearly 11 feet of sea level rise. The rate of West Antarctic ice loss has been ominously increasing, and there are fears that if too much goes, the slow and long-term process of ice sheet disintegration could accelerate. Humans have a hard time conceiving of the incredible scale of an...

According to the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, on November 20, 2014, three of Michigan's Great Lakes had ice starting to form. Lake Superior and Lake Michigan were one-half percent ice covered, while Lake Huron had one percent ice. Lake Erie was not reporting any ice as of Nov. 20, 2014. Decent early season ice coverage records date back to 1973. Last Friday was the earliest date that all...

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday that last month was the hottest October on record worldwide. "It is becoming pretty clear that 2014 will end up as the warmest year on record," said Deke Arndt, climate monitoring chief for NOAA. "The remaining question is: How much?" He said this year's heat is what scientists expect from man-made global warming. Scientists say the burning of coal, oil and gas traps heats,...

    The Storm Glass was first invented in the mid 1700's, and soon made it's way into ships and harbors around Europe to help give warning of approaching bad weather. It gained the most fame through Admiral FitzRoy who used a Storm Glass on the voyage in which he and Darwin traveled to the Galápagos Islands. As such, the instrument is sometimes called a 'FitzRoy Storm Glass'. Due to the use of vodka rather than pure ethanol and water, the proportions I use to make the Storm Glass in my video breaks somewhat from the traditional ratios, but the recipe is...

    An arctic storm system has some Coloradans shoveling out from under tumbleweeds rather than snow. Tumbleweeds piled up several feet high around houses and shops and along roads in and around Colorado Springs and Pueblo on Monday as the system moved from north to south across the state. Peggy Perales of the National Weather Service in Pueblo says winds gusted up to 60 mph as the storm moved in. That also kicked up blinding dust in the region, with the worst of it lasting for about an hour.

It's still going to be ugly, possibly for Thanksgiving. Joe argues for more research for short term forcasting, because the current modeling isn't terribly accurate because of changes, maybe because of solar dimming. Maybe. But this is the problem; that there isn't enough research done for short-term forecasting. Case in point: The sudden crash of the Southern Oscillation index and its effect on the feedback of heat from energy released by convection activity is...

    Alex Sosnowski November 5, 2014 The atmosphere is preparing to send part of the polar vortex southward toward the US next week with an outbreak of arctic air and lake-effect snow. The polar vortex is a large pocket of very cold air, typically the coldest air in the Northern Hemisphere, which sits over the polar region. Occasionally, this pocket of very cold air can get dislodged farther south than normal, leading to cold outbreaks in Canada and the US. The main blast of cold air associated with the plunging polar vortex will swing southeastward into the Central and Eastern states...
