Historic amounts of global warming pounding northeast. 6000 flights

cancelled due to global warming. NY, Philly, DC bracing for the 1000 mile wide global warming cloud heading their way. Al Roker is reporting on it right now.

But you forgot to mention Al Gore. Points off.

2. Impeccable argument!

I'd like to see someone explain how if carbon dioxide supposedly influences the planet's temperature by supposedly absorbing energy in infrared frequencies then how could there still be snow in the winter? Huh?

5. Excellent question. And in line with your question, I'd like to see

someone explain why it's hot in the summer, and what that big orange thingy in the daytime sky has to do with the planets temperatures. Huh!!!

6. Exactly! If only there was some way to predict

how bodies in space radiate heat? But alas, it's unknowable.

OOPS!

14. Exactly! What happened to all scientific claims that there would be no more snow

in "lots of areas" in the temperate zones? I remember lots of so-called "atmospheric scientists" saying that weather variability would decrease or end as the global average surface temperature increased 3 to 7 degrees C in the next century.

A Blizzard Roars Out of Climate Change’s Heart — Polar Warming and A Record Hot Atlantic Ocean Brew Up Nightmare Storm for US East Coast
There’s a historic blizzard in the form of Winter Storm Jonas setting its sights on the US East Coast. The storm is slowly coming together Thursday evening and now appears to be set to paralyze a 1,000 mile swath under 1 to 2.5 feet of snow even as it hurls a substantial storm surge and 40-60 mph winds at waterfront cities from Norfolk to Boston. A monster storm whose predicted formation has made headlines since Tuesday. But what you won’t hear most major news sources mention is the likelihood that this gathering storm has been dramatically impacted by a number of new climate features related to a human-forced warming of the globe.

To understand how climate change helped make Jonas so extreme, it’s best if we start our tale in the Arctic. For if we could mark an area on the Earth’s surface that is at the very heart of impacts for human-caused climate change it would be in that zone of the far north above the 66th parallel. It is there that we see the most dramatic, most rapid changes — to ice, to weather, to the thawing lands, to life itself. But unlike what might be said of an American city made famous by its penchant for sin — what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic.

As Dr. Michael Mann noted in a tweet earlier this week, sea surface temperatures off the US East Coast are extraordinarily warm for this time of year. And Bill McKibben was absolutely astute in saying that these near record temperatures “should turbo-charge this weekend’s blizzard.”

You just don’t see these kinds of temperature departures for the ocean — or at least you didn’t before human-caused climate change started to ramp up. But now we have them — an ocean surface hot enough to support a hurricane but one that will this weekend provide fuel for a blizzard. So the kind of blizzard we will have will not at all be like even the usual blizzards of the 20th Century. This is the new, worse variety that will sadly become more frequent. Destructive, heavy snowfall in the 4-5 inches per hour range, thundersnow and storm surges combined, swaths of hundreds of miles impacted and crippled. The kind for the new age of a human-heated atmosphere — destabilized to produce freak storms of a ferocity and frequency the likes of which we have never seen.

7. Human-heated atmosphere. Perfect. I'm going to keep that one for future reference. That

reminds me, I need to fire up the BBQ grille.

9. Jackie

I think your memory is going.

Every time there is cold weather in the NE we have to remind you the difference between weather and climate. This is a reminder to review the last several times you have done this.

I would make more comments but am afraid I might get into trouble.

4. Warmer air holds more moisture

The warmer atmosphere holds 5% more water than before due to global warming. This is resulting in bigger floods and snow storms. The water saturated warmer air from the Gulf is mixing with cold air from the north and condensing it in the form of snow.

8. and yet,

next Tuesday it's supposed to be pushing near 50 in Boston.

But I'm sure you won't take that as a sign that AGW is real.

Nope, that's just weather.

22. Ah skeptical on science, but believe errant book written by old men thousands of years ago

There isn't even evidence moses existed (or jeebus) but hey, let's just accept all that as fact because, well, why not? And let's ignore scientists and research today because, well, even if it gets bad jeebus will come back and save us.

Yeah. Makes sense.

15. It was a mistake to have ever called it global 'warming'.

Try to think of it as climate change.

Furthermore please remember it has nothing to do with current 'weather'.

16. I thought the newest term was

 

"Climate Disruption". Hell, the terms change almost as much as the climate models and AlGorithims. Makes it kind of hard to keep up. I remember in school when everyone was worried about Globull Cooling and the coming Ice Age.

What ever happened to "More Hurricanes and More Intense Hurricanes?

I guess we're DOOMED no matter what terms the fear mongers use to peddle their fear.
