It's cold, must be global warming!

Quote:
If one actually studies the history of weather over the last 2,000 years, you see massive storms, amazing heat, brutal cold waves, devastating droughts, terrible floods and disastrous hurricanes -- none caused by global warming..
Now they call it climate change so if it's hot its man made global warming, if its cold its man-made global warming. What happened to all the scientists from the 1970s that said the world was growing so cold that food would be unable to be grown and the world was going to starve?

Quote:
New York Times story from the 1970s, which said the planet was getting so cold that humanity was in danger of starving to death. The article argued that the world’s weather would soon be so frigid that it could no longer permit the cultivation of crops for food. The Times’ headline on August 8, 1974, was simple enough: “Climate changes Endanger World’s Food Output.”
I wonder how much warmer the earth will become before I freeze to death?

I was told it doesn't snow much here! (Taken yesterday)
Campground



Snow on the roof



By the way... I25 was shut down



12 trucks and one fiver was parked in the parking lot of the store Stacey works at.


I'm ready for summer... at which time I will be complaining about the heat! But I won't have to deal with a frozen black tank!!!!

Re: It's cold, must be global warming!

It's been a rough winter uphere in Washington State too. We even had a few inches of snow in November, which technically isn't winter, but close. Had a couple of three nights this week where it even got below freezing. If it gets any colder I'm going to have to move farther north.

Re: It's cold, must be global warming!

On the news last night they said (local news channel) the NM was out of Nat. Gas for heating all those homes as of yesterday. So here we are, coldest it's been since the 1970's and the Nat Gas systems has broke down! Glad we use LP... hope the electric system holds up! One of the towns, Raton, they said is looking at no fuel for two or three days.

Re: It's cold, must be global warming!

Well, up here in the Pacific Northwest, it's rain today (& tommorrow, etc.).

Most up here have learned to have some sort of non-grid reliant heating source. When we get a blast, it's the electricity that goes. Never heard of the natural gas system going down. Typically that's super reliant, unless a pipeline craps out (and when does that ever happen?)

When a state with plenty of it's own natural gas resources (NM) buys their natural gas from another state (TX) that has been having rolling blackouts (for the last few days) causing the equipment that compresses the gas to stop working because it operates on electricity!

Am I the only one who thinks that sounds a little on the stupid side??? That's nothing compared to the super computer that NM bought. Cost them a fortune! And they have not made a penny onit. All the time has been given away for free. It that dumb or what?
