Crazy winter weather

Post by Steve » 31 Dec 2010, 23:46

Here in the St. louis area, it is warm, WAY too warm for late December. This is the result of the crazy weather. Not too far from where I live, and very close to where I work.

Yeah weather is changing due to heating up of the earth, here in Europe we are getting different air streams with as result that colder air from the north is streaming much lower over Europe then it normaly does. Last year we had a colder winter then normal and this year we have had the 2nd coldest December month since 1932 here in Holland lol,.. Earth is warming up yet we are getting more extreme weather it seems. :lol:

Glad you are fine Steve

Bah, i get so thierd of the media spinning on about this, trying to proclaim that you can se results of a climat change over a 3 year period. Becase you simply cannot, its called extrapolation and it means guessing whats happening prior or after your test values. Now, if there are like 2 cold winters, how can you possibly plot a line decennies ahead based on soley those two values and scream climat change? :) To me, right now, its well within the standard deviation of what the weather should do and nothing weird at all - some winters need to be coldest too :P . Wether or not a climat change is happening, thats another matter...

meepmeep!

Global warming is a hoax. It's just the government trying to pull the wool over your eyes. If anything we're at the start of a mini ice age.

No way. We have enough winter here (Montreal, Quebec but I think most Canadians would agree with me) as it is (even if the big snow storm that hit the USA recently just missed us), I'm not having any ice age before I get to grow live palm trees around the pool in my backyard for X-mas. Global warming FTW! :P :wink:
