Record snow? Weekend storm may break Boston record

Boston may hit a snowfall record this weekend as another round of snow moves in Sunday night.

Models show the system bringing only 3 to 6 inches across the region, but that may be enough to topple the snowfall total record for Boston.

Four photos of slush waves that’ll chill your bones

If only photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh had a specially designed “slurfboard,” he could be riding the semi-frozen waves rolling onto the shores of Nantucket. Instead, the intrepid photographer resorted snapping these shots while “absolutely freezing on the beach.”

“When I pulled up to the beach I could see the horizon just look strange,” he wrote, adding that the high temperature that day was a bone-chilling 19 degrees. “When I got to the top off the dunes I saw that beginning about 300 yards away from the shoreline the ocean was starting to freeze.”

Slurpee waves! The moment semi-frozen breakers rolled ashore in New England amid record cold

Plummeting temperatures have broken hundreds of winter records across the country - making February one of the coldest months in history.

But in New England, it has gotten so cold even the waves are starting to freeze.

These incredible photos of so-called 'slurpee waves' were taken by surfer Jonathan Nimerfroh in Nantucket, Massachusetts.

He took his camera out when he noticed the horizon looked strange - and then spotted the surf had turn slushy.

Forecast: Record cold Thursday night in SE Michigan

Instead, clearing skies, dry air, light wind, and an Arctic airmass overhead are perfect conditions for another night of radiational cooling (we’ve seen so many this winter) -- a very efficient mechanism for sharply falling temperatures. By dawn Friday, temperatures in the Urban Heat Island should be close to our official record low of -4°, set back in 1934.

Undersea Volcanoes May Be Impacting Climate Change

A new study claims that volcanic eruptions along the ocean floor may impact earth’s climate cycle and that predictive models, including those that analyze humanity’s impact on climate change, may need to be modified.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Snap quiz: How many active volcanoes and thermal vents are there on the floors of the world's oceans? Don't know? Don;t feel bad; it's a trick question. Nobody knows how many active volcanoes and thermal vents are there on the floors of the world's oceans. And if they don't know that, then any models are just expensive computerized wild-assed guesses on which national policy (meaning a carbon tax) should not be based.

BEX ALERT - Scientists now know why global warming has slowed down and it’s not good news for us

It’s been called the “hiatus,” “pause,” or “slowdown” and has been a favored meme of climate skeptics for years.

Despite the continued increase of greenhouse gas emissions from us, rise of global surface temperatures has been easing since 1998.

Two new studies published this week examine the origins of the“pause,” and, surprisingly, suggest that it may persist for years even in our notably warming world.

Near record low possible Thursday night in Ann Arbor

We're in for a cold day and snowy weekend, Ann Arbor.

The temperature was 8 degrees Fahrenheit at about 7 a.m. Feb. 26 at Ann Arbor Municipal Airport, according to the National Weather Service.

While temperatures are set to rise as high as 13 degrees on Thursday, night will be the greatest concern when temperatures could fall to near record lows, according to a Hazardous Weather Outlook by the National Weather Service.

More record-breaking cold on tap before it turns warmer

February's arctic grip on New Jersey will continue to throw down the gauntlet to daily record lows to close out the month, but less extreme conditions are on the way -- and soon.

Although, residents today felt temperatures in the mid 30s, which was significantly warmer than the last few days, it was still on the colder side of historical averages for this time of year.

Tonight, the Garden State will drop back into the teens with a slight wind.

Feb 26 11:25

Maine cold weather records falling as fast as temperatures themselves

With four days left until the end of the month, everything remains on track for this to go down as the coldest February on record in Caribou and Bangor.

“We are still teetering on the brink of breaking the February record,” Tony Mignon, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Caribou, said late Tuesday night. “But there is not much left in the month and it looks like it will be pretty cold for the most part.”

An average temperature of 2.4 degrees — 10.9 degrees below normal for the month — has folks in northern Maine toughing it out as best they can.

BEX ALERT - Even as the eastern U.S. freezes, there’s less cold air in winter than ever before

Yet, in what may seem like a paradox, the amount of wintertime cold air circulating around the Northern Hemisphere is shrinking to record low levels. This winter (2014-2015) is on track to see the most depleted cold air supply ever measured.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can you believe these guys? "Yes it was very cold, but it's just an itty-bitty-teensy-weensy cold and should not cause you to ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER doubt the most holy revealed dogma of human-caused global warming, as handed down by the First Church of Saint Al of the Gore!"

And this frozen pile of bovine excrement is coming from no less than the Washington Post (that bastion of truth in the Watergate days), and supposed official word from the US Government.

Back in 2000, the Carbonazis were claiming there would be no more snow and ice because of human-caused global warming. Only last November the media proclaimed that this winter, unlike the several before it, would see no new cold weather records. And here we are, with centuries-old cold records falling like flies on the doorstep to March, and still they are pushing the global warming agenda.

Has the Washington Post no shame? Are they on drugs? Do they own stock in carbon trading firms? Or do they just lack the courage and integrity to admit they were wrong?

Bad news for warmists: Sun has entered 'weakest solar cycle in a century'

The conceit that human production of carbon dioxide is capable of driving the earth’s climate is running smack into the sun. CO2 accounts for a mere 0.039% of the atmosphere, while the sun accounts for 99.86% of all of the mass in our entire solar system. And Ol’ Sol is not taking the insult lightly. Vencore Weather reports:

For the past 5 days, solar activity has been very low and one measure of solar activity – its X-ray output – has basically flatlined in recent days (plot below courtesy NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center). Not since cycle 14 peaked in February 1906 has there been a solar cycle with fewer sunspots.

Feb 25 12:38

FLASHBACK 2013 - Solar activity heads for lowest low in four centuries

The sun's activity is in free fall, according to a leading space physicist. But don't expect a little ice age. "Solar activity is declining very fast at the moment," Mike Lockwood, professor of space environmental physics at Reading University, UK, told New Scientist. "We estimate faster than at any time in the last 9300 years."

Record Cold And Snow Destroy Global Warming Claims

Yet another bitterly cold, snowy winter is destroying alarmist global warming claims, proving once again that over-the-top global warming predictions are proving no more scientifically credible than snake oil.

This morning, stunning photos show New England lobster boats frozen in port, looking like they are stranded deep within the Arctic Circle. The boats have been frozen in place for weeks, which would be remarkable enough if this were the middle of January. However, the calendar is about to turn to March.

Mini Ice Age 2015-2035 | 100+ Year Temperature Records Dropping Like Flies & 10.7cm Flux Down 30%


So yet again, the sun has fallen absolutely silent, and has been so for three days. This comes at the presumed height of the current solar maximum in April ’14. We can see that the F10.7cm flux – a measure of UV radiation – is down approximately 30% from 3 months ago.

NASA’s own website (http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/pre...) states that the F10.7 flux is “an important indicator of solar activity because it tends to follow the changes in the solar ultraviolet that influence the Earth’s upper atmosphere and ionosphere.” Decreasing UV radiation, lower solar winds, allow for more cosmic radiation from interstellar space to interact with the upper atmosphere and leads to greater cloud formation. More clouds means more sunlight refracted before hitting the surface of the planet, which leads to more cooling effects.

Betrayed By Science, The Church of Global Warming Can Still Burn a Heretic or Two

To appreciate the psychology of the global-warming cult, one must understand a few contextual details. Most importantly, these are times of panic for the Church of Global Warming. Science has failed them. The global warming they predicted is going into its third decade of not happening. Polar ice and sea levels aren’t doing what they predicted. Much of their seminal research has been exposed as academic fraud, based on cute little games like ignoring large periods of history that don’t conform to their man-made climate change models, fudging temperature measurements, and changing the methodology for recording and estimating global temperatures at during different historical periods. Their recent attempts to scare up a few headlines favorable to the movement, such as the big media fuss about 2014 being the “hottest year in history,” have collapsed under scrutiny as exaggerations or outright falsifications.

Climate researcher questions Cyclone Marcia’s category 5 status

A CLIMATE researcher at Central Queensland University has claimed the weather bureau’s Cyclone Marcia forecasts were inaccurate and irresponsible.

Jennifer Morohasy said the bureau had used computer modelling rather than early readings from weather stations to determine that Marcia was a category 5 cyclone, not a category 3.

Feb 24 17:03

Views on global warming led to weather bureau staff exaggerating strength of Cyclone Marcia, claims scientist

WEATHER bureau staff are so blinded by the view that global warming will produce more intense cyclones that they exaggerated Cyclone Marcia’s size, a scientist says.

Jennifer Marohasy said the bureau had invested hundreds of millions in having researchers investigate the impacts of human-induced global warming and this had coloured its views.

“They want to have more intense cyclones. (As Marcia passed) they ignored the observational data and it’s not good enough,” she said.

Boulder Breaks Snow Total Record For February, Denver’s February Also One Of Snowiest

Snow totals continue coming in for the storm system that has been hitting Colorado over the past few days, and there are some impressive stats.

Boulder broke a record for the month of February — for both the snowiest and wettest February on record.

Westminster checked in with 20.5 inches, apparently the highest snow total we’ve seen in the Denver metro area.

Feb 24 09:47

Wednesday Storm Could Break Denver’s All-Time February Snow Record

With two more storms to arrive before the month ends, Denver is inching toward a new mark in the record books.

This past weekend’s long-duration storm event brought 10.5 inches officially, bringing the total snow so far in February to 17.2 inches.

That’s just 4.9 inches shy of tying the all-time snowiest February on record when 22.1 inches fell in 1912.

Daily Record Low Smashed – February Record Low Tied

It’s yet another morning with record cold! This is the 6th day this month temperatures have fallen to record levels. We smashed the record for today which was -5 set back in 1948. It’s one of the coldest mornings in western Massachusetts recorded history. Just like Saturday morning when we tied the all-time lowest February temperature at Westover (-19), we did again this morning. We got down to -19 once again! The coldest winter morning for *any* month ever recorded at Westover is -22. By the way, on this day in 1985 we hit 71 degrees, the warmest temperature recorded in the month of February!

Here are some morning lows from across the area. Orange -21, Westover -19, Fitchburg -15, Barnes -12, North Adams -12, Bradley -8, Worcester -7, Hartford -4, Providence, -3, Boston +2.

More Record Cold…

More record cold is on the way tonight! Oh I have been just full of good news lately. Another arctic cold front moved through during the day today and with it comes frigid temperatures and brutal wind chills through tomorrow. But let’s start with tonight, the forecast calls for -2°F for the shoreline towns, this would SHATTER the 47 year old record of 12°F which was set back in 1968. Inland, even colder, the forecast calls for -10°F, some towns in the higher elevations will likely be -15°F. This would also SHATTER the 108 year old record of -4°F which was set back in 1907, which is before the Titanic sank in 1912!

FLASHBACK 2010 - UN climate change panel based claims on student dissertation and magazine article

The revelation will cause fresh embarrassment for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which had to issue a humiliating apology earlier this month over inaccurate statements about global warming.

The IPCC's remit is to provide an authoritative assessment of scientific evidence on climate change.

In its most recent report, it stated that observed reductions in mountain ice in the Andes, Alps and Africa was being caused by global warming, citing two papers as the source of the information.

However, it can be revealed that one of the sources quoted was a feature article published in a popular magazine for climbers which was based on anecdotal evidence from mountaineers about the changes they were witnessing on the mountainsides around them.

FLASHBACK 2010 - UN report that said Himalayan glaciers would melt within 25 years was all hot air

Claims by the world's leading climate scientists that most of the Himalayan glaciers will vanish within 25 years were last night exposed as nonsense.

The alarmist warning appeared two years ago in a highly influential report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

At the time the IPCC insisted that its report contained the latest and most detailed evidence yet of the risks of man-made climate change to the planet.
The Himalayas

But the experts behind the warning have now admitted their claim was not based on hard science - but a news story that appeared in the magazine New Scientist in the late 1990s.

That story was itself based on a telephone conversation with an Indian scientist who has since admitted it was little more than speculation.

Feb 24 07:35

FLASHBACK 2010 - United Nations caught out again on climate claims

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny - and ignored warnings from scientific advisers. The report's author later withdrew the claim because the evidence was too weak.

The link was central to demands at last month's Copenhagen climate summit by African nations for compensation of $US100 billion from the rich nations.

Feb 24 07:34

FLASHBACK 2013 - IPCC 's Bogus Evidence for Global Warming

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was set up by the United Nations in 1988 and has been trying very hard to demonstrate the threat of a dangerous human influence on climate due to the emission of greenhouse gases. This is in line with their Charter, which directs the IPCC to assemble reports in support of the Global Climate Treaty -- the 1992 Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC) of Rio de Janeiro.

It is interesting that IPCC "evidence" was based on peer-reviewed publications - but (reluctantly) abandoned only after protracted critiques from outside scientists. E-mails among members of the IPCC team, revealed in the 2009 'Climategate' leak, describe their strenuous efforts to silence such critiques, often using unethical methods.

Pachauri Quits UN Climate Panel After Harassment Allegation

Rajendra Pachauri, who supervised work on the two most detailed studies of climate change ever completed, stepped down as head of the United Nations panel studying the science after allegations he sexually harassed a colleague.

The chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change wrote in a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon that he would resign on Tuesday because he may be unable to provide the panel the leadership it needs.

His decision removes from the climate debate one of the most prominent and authoritative voices calling for the reining in in greenhouse gases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Authoritative?" Read his background. He is an electrical engineer who spent most of his career working for India's Railroads. He is not a scientist. He is not a climatologist. He is, like Al Gore, only peripherally knowledgeable about the subject he promotes.

A robust winter storm, covering a stretch of nearly 2,000 miles, spread a swath of snow and ice from the central U.S. to the Northeast over the weekend. The storm began Friday night over the central Plains and mid-Mississippi Valley before departing from the Northeast Sunday morning.

In Tennessee, Gov. Bill Haslam elevated the state of emergency declaration to a level two due to "major impacts to infrastructure power and roads" throughout the state, the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA), reported. The storm death toll in Tennessee increased to 22 on Sunday afternoon. More than 44,000 customers remained without power in the state as of Sunday afternoon, according to TEMA.

More record cold this week

Our weather pattern is a record breaking machine. After several record lows last week, 5 record lows are in jeopardy this week. We are also on pace now to come very close to the all time record for the coldest and snowiest February since 1871. Not only could this February be the coldest on record, but it has the chance to be the 2nd coldest month ever on record for Toledo. So think about it, out of the 1,730 months on record, this month will either end up as the 2nd or 3rd coldest. Not even the historic winter of 2014 can compare with this February in terms of cold or snow. Currently the coldest February ever recorded was in 1978 with an average temperature of 11.8° (we will be around 11.5° to 12.0° this year if the forecast holds). The coldest month on the books for Toledo was January of 1977 with an average temperature of 9.6°.

Toronto breaks 43-year-old temperature record as frigid cold continues

Toronto has broken a 43-year-old temperature record for this date as an arctic air mass continues to hover over the city.

At 5 a .m. the temperature hit – 20.1 C at Pearson International Airport, breaking the previous record for February 23 of – 19.4 C (1972).

Things aren’t going to improve anytime soon either.

According to Environment Canada, the temperature will not surpass – 16 C today and the wind chill will make it feel closer to – 33.

Harrisburg on track to surpass coldest February on record, weather service says

With more bone-chilling temperatures expected this week, Harrisburg has a strong chance of surpassing the coldest February on record, according to the National Weather Service.

Through Sunday, the average temperature this month sat at 20.7 degrees, said Aaron Tyburski, a meteorologist with the weather service. That average factors in the high and low temperatures from the month's 22 days.

Harrisburg's all-time record-low average for February is 21.4 degrees. That record was set in 1934, according to weather service records, which stretch back to 1888.

Winter returns with snow in Las Vegas Valley

After a night of showers, some Las Vegas valley residents woke up to a cool surprise: Snow!

Parts of Summerlin were dusted with about one to two inches of snow, National Weather Service meteorologist Stan Czyzyk said.

At least one to two inches of snow was recorded in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. But Czyzyk said he wouldn’t be surprised if they received more.

Las Vegas police said three hikers were reported stranded in Red Rock Canyon near the Ice Box Canyon trail about 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The search and rescue team were forced to delay the search until early Monday morning due to inclement weather. The hikers were advised to conduct a shelter in place until then.

BEX ALERT - Are Siberia's mysterious craters caused by climate change? Scientists find four new enormous holes in northern Russia

Four new mysterious giant craters have appeared in the Siberian permafrost in northern Russia, sparking fears that global warming may be causing gas to erupt from underground.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If those are new craters, then why do they show erosional features?

UPDATE: A Geologist was written in to inform me that these features are called hydrolaccoliths, they are very common in permafrost, and as the name suggests, they are caused by water, not by methane.

Republicans To Investigate NASA Over Climate Data Tampering

With record heat (and drought) in the west and record cold (wet and snow) in the east, the global warming game-playing continues every day but the climate-gate rhetoric has increased vociferously since we first noted three weeks ago, the data that has been so relied upon to 'prove' global warming's trend was in fact manipulated. What The Telegraph called "the most extraordinary scandal of our times" - that of the "seasonally-adjusted" seasonal raw global temperature data - is about to be investigated by Congress. As Daily Caller reports, California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrbacher exclaimed "expect there to be congressional hearings into NASA altering weather station data to falsely indicate warming & sea rise."

Whether this winter turns out to be warm or cold, scientists say that climate change means the long-term outlook for skiers everywhere is bleak. The threat of global warming hangs over almost every resort, from Sugarloaf in Maine to Squaw Valley in California. As temperatures rise, analysts predict that scores of the nation’s ski centers, especially those at lower elevations and latitudes, will eventually vanish.

Bill Nye Tells MSNBC To Say Climate Change, Not Global Warming, When It’s Cold Out

Words are everything, even in the global warming debate. TV personality Bill Nye the “Science Guy” told MSNBC’s Joy Reid to use the phrase climate change, not global warming, when it’s so cold out.

“Let’s not confuse or interchange climate change with global warming,” Nye told Reid on Monday. “Global warming – The world is getting warmer. There is more carbon [dioxide] holding in more heat.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where?!?

Nye's logical fallacy is that "Climate Change" can mean the climate is going either warmer or cooler. If it is going warmer and you believe the CO2 theory, then limiting CO2 makes sense. BUT ... if the world is cooling, then carbon taxes and carbon credits will make matters worse (again, if you believe the premise that CO2 dominated Earth's climate instead of that giant ball of fusing hydrogen in the sky, which BTW is entering a period of lower activity).

Is this Bill Nye's "Brian Williams/Bill O'Reilly" moment?

And let us not forget that back in 2000, all the "Climate Change" experts were declaring that snow was a thing of the past (UK Independent, March 20, 2000)

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2015)

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

It was all a lie. Here is how it happened.

Media Reports That GMO Science Is Settled Are Flat-Out Wrong

In the wake of prominent media reports about supposed scientific agreement on the safety of genetically engineered food, including a cover story in National Geographic that equates concerns about GMOs with climate change denial, U.S. Right to Know is calling on media to accurately report that the science on GMOs is contradictory, unsettled, and has been largely controlled by corporations that profit from GMO seeds and the pesticides that go with them.

“Unfortunately, many members of the media, and even some scientists, have been snookered by PR firms about a supposed scientific consensus on GMOs that doesn’t exist,” said Stacy Malkan, media director of U.S. Right to Know.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am glad National Geographic linked concern over GMO with global warming denial, as this winter (like the 5 before it) has demonstrated that the science is NOT settled!

For instance, in Boston, where the snow is literally measure in feet these days, they're within a foot of their all-time snowiest winter ever. That was the winter of 1995-96 at 107.6 inches. They're tied with the winter of 1993-1994 with 96.3 inches for second snowiest winter on record. Of the next five, only two were before 1990. As a side note, it's kind of interesting that in an era where 'snow would become a rare, exciting event,' that six of the top eight snowiest winters have occurred in the last 25 years.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2015)

The corporate media has laucnhed a blitz of claims that 2014 was the hottest year on record, despite the record cold and snow this winter. The claim that 2014 is the hottest year on record was put forward by a Japanese global warming researcher and supported by both NASA and NOAA, which work for the same government that assured you Saddam had nuclear weapons.

However, NASA is already hedging their bets by admitting that the statistical methods used to arrive at this claim have a very wide margin of error, so much so that it is only a 38% chance the claim is accurate.

Meanwhile, the satellite launched to measure Earth's temperature does not confirm this claim. In fact, 2014 came in at sixth place in the time since since the satellite was launched!

Why is it that when politicians make basic science mistakes in support of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming, no government agency or university representative corrects them?

It is not as if such errors are rare; they happen all the time.

For example, climate modellers correctly label their speculations of future temperatures as “projections”, meaning that they have no validated forecast skill.

Yet lawmakers treat the models as providing forecasts or predictions.

Because this misusage is never corrected, our leaders get away with basing expensive public policy on misinformation.

Dangerously cold temperatures move into Detroit

Potentially record-setting cold is descending through lower Michigan Saturday afternoon, with actual temperatures that could reach 10 below zero overnight and wind chills that could reach 40 below.

The National Weather Service has also issued winter storm warnings in West Michigan and advisories for the central Lower Peninsula. Slick roads caused numerous vehicle spinouts late Friday and early Saturday on roadways in the Detroit and Grand Rapids areas.

The dangerous cold has canceled Saturday’s planned polar plunge in the Detroit River and had already prompted the cancellation of other activities.

2 Year Old Siemens Turbines Falling Apart: Wind Farm Investors, Get Out While You Can

Bitter cold heads east as Boston braces for blizzard

Merciless cold and savage winds will bring more winter misery to tens of millions of people across the eastern half of the USA this weekend as New England braces for yet another powerful blizzard.

"Much of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast could see highs only in the single digits and teens, with overnight lows well below zero," according to WeatherBug meteorologist Seth Carrier. Wind chills will be dangerously cold, at 10 to 20 degrees below zero.

About 72 million people will endure below-zero temperatures within the next five days, WeatherBell meteorologist Ryan Maue said. By Sunday, record low temperatures are possible up and down the eastern seaboard.

Near-record cold tomorrow morning

Tomorrow morning's record low temperature for Flint is -7°, set back in 1970... And we could either tie or break that record.

Saginaw's record low for tomorrow morning will be a lot tougher to beat, however, at -15° set back in 1899.

I think both Flint and Saginaw will bottom out around -7°, but wind chills will be in the teens to near 20 below zero.

Possibly record-setting cold with two shots of snow in weather forecast

Twenty years have passed and that miserable winter, where snow starting falling Christmas night and didn't stop until April, remains one for the record books.

But 2015 could set some records of its own, a meteorologist from WeatherWorks in Hackettstown said Friday morning.

"I think it might be 20-year-type of cold" that descended overnight on the Lehigh Valley and northwest New Jersey, Rob Reale said. "Particularly Sunday night into Monday morning. We're not talking all-time record cold -- (but) from a mid-February-type record, it might be record cold."

There is a chance that overnight low hits "minus-5 around here; possibly minus-8," Reale said.

The all-time low for Feb. 15 at Lehigh Valley International Airport is minus-8, while the record low for Feb. 16 is minus-7, both set in 1943, Reale said, citing National Weather Service figures.

Claim: Global Warming Is Causing Less And More Snowfall

In 2001, global warming meant fewer major snowstorms with some scientists even predicting the end of snow, but in 2015 global warming means more major snowstorms.

Some scientists are now saying global temperature rises will lead to more massive snowstorms like the one that covered Boston in several feet of snow this week — a complete turnaround from what climate scientists were saying just a few years ago.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2015)

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

It was all a lie. Here is how it happened.

BEX ALERT - Cold Air Invasion Coming: What’s the Role of Warming?

The non-stop sucker punches of frigid air also brought to the forefront the idea that global warming could paradoxically be behind them, with Arctic sea ice melt forcing wild dives in the jet stream up in the atmosphere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is time to quit trying to promote the Orwellian logic of "Global warming creates snow and ice" and remember that ten years ago the "Carbonazis" were saying the exact opposite; that global warming meant "Snowfalls are now a thing of the past" (UK Guardian, March 20,2000).

If global warming is melting the arctic, then how can the air coming down from the north be BELOW FREEZING?

Think, people. It makes the government very nervous when you do!

Another days long snowstorm threatens to clobber New England

Winter-weary New England braced Sunday for another round of snow that threatened to bear down on the region into the workweek and pile up to 2 feet in some areas.

As light snow began falling by the afternoon, drivers were warned to stay off the roads and cancellations were posted for schools and court dockets Monday.

The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings for central New York, the western Catskills and much of New England through early Tuesday.

"I'm frustrated. The last thing I want to be talking about is another 24 inches of snow. I want to move on to something else," Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said at City Hall. "It's unprecedented ... Maybe up in Alaska or Buffalo, they have this amount of snow and they're used to it."

After record cold this morning, temperature during the afternoon will only warm to the upper teens and lower 20s. A band of snow showers and flurries was working across CT and exiting as of early afternoon - expect only partial clearing over the coming hours.

Regarding the long duration storm: anticipate areas of light snow to develop Saturday afternoon as a weak disturbances passes through; then, periods of snow will be likely on Sunday (2-4" possible by the end of the day). Snow will ramp up, intensify Sunday night into Monday... tapering off/ending by Tuesday morning. Total storm snowfall will be on the order of 6-12 inches, with locally higher amounts in northern and northwest CT.

Global warming? Only the data is heated

Skeptics of man-made catastrophic climate change of the kind pimped by Al Gore have been ridiculed, scoffed at and dismissed sneeringly as “deniers.”

For years, anyone in public life who expressed doubts about the apocalyptic claims of governments, the scientific establishment and the lemming-like popular culture was treated like a card-carrying member of the Flat-Earth Society.

Worse yet, dissident scientists were categorically denied the ability to publish in scientific journals, let alone get government grants for research.

Yet the doubts have persisted – driving one noble blogger to do something others had failed to do: Check the original official temperature records and compare them with what was actually recorded by the science establishment issuing the dire warnings of doom and gloom unless coercive, top-down action was taken to reduce carbon emissions worldwide.

The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever

When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.

Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.
