Global Warming is striking hard in the US. ¬†The Herald reports on ‘Snowmageddon’ or global warming in a cool phase:
A major storm blowing in heavy snow and ice is gripping large swaths of the winter-weary US, leaving a dozen people dead and knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of homes.
Thousands of travellers were stranded as flights, including at major air hubs in Atlanta and New York, were cancelled, and nearly 800,000 homes and businesses lost power, mainly in Georgia, and North and South Carolina.
The latest brutal freeze to hammer the eastern states of the country since the start of the year has been dubbed “snowmaggedon”, “mind-boggling” and “historic” by major television networks and forecasters.
CBS News said at least 11 deaths had been blamed on the ferocious conditions.
“A strengthening area of low pressure will move up the east coast Thursday bringing with it significant winter weather from the southeast to New England (in the northeast),” said the National Weather Service, which had warned of a “mammoth dome” of Arctic air.¬† Read more »
Apart from that, global warming is not delivering in Portland, Oregon either.
The global warmists have been pretty much wrong on everything so far and their taxpayer funded computer modelling is a joke, garbage in garbage out.
But let’s say they are correct and we may get warming of 2 degrees over the next century that will bring the temperature up in Washington to -12, -20 in Chicago, -14 in New York and balmy Florida to a sweltering 2 degrees.
The Daily Mail reports progress with global warming in the Northern Hemisphere.
Brutal, life-threatening cold descended over the East and the South, sending the mercury plummeting on Tuesday into the single digits and teens from New York and Washington to Atlanta, Nashville and Birmingham – where many people have little experience in dealing with freezing weather.
After pounding the Midwest and Great Lakes over the weekend, snow from winter storm Ion started to move into the East on Tuesday.
The morning weather map for the eastern half of the U.S. was dotted with lots of small, negative numbers with the Midwest and the East were colder than much of Antarctica.
The¬†historic freeze shuttered schools, businesses and made road conditions treacherous.¬†More than 3,700 flights – around one out of every 10 domestic departures – were canceled on Monday with delays continuing today. The majority of cancellations were in Chicago, Cleveland, New York and Boston. ¬† Read more »
Global warming is attacking hard out in the US…smothering the mid-west in freezing temperatures unheard of for decades.
Plenty more people die from the cold than from heat…but you know the planet is warming and these freezing temperatures are proof of that according to the real denialists, those who ignore there has been no warming for 17 years.
Right about now if you asked residents in the US Mid-West what they thought about global warming you’d probably be stripped naked, doused in water and thrown out in the snow.
A deep freeze expected soon in the US Midwest, northeastern New England states and even the South will be one to remember, with potential record-low temperatures heightening fears of frostbite and hypothermia.
It hasn’t been this cold for decades 20 years in Washington, D.C., 18 years in Milwaukee, 15 in Missouri even in the Midwest, where bundling up is second nature. Weather Bell meteorologist Ryan Maue said, “If you’re under 40 (years old), you’ve not seen this stuff before.”¬† Read more »
Apparently the storm will drop temperatures so much it will¬†freeze skin in 15 mins…even a good freezer can’t do that
Almost 100 million people across the Northeast battened-down-the-hatches as the huge¬†winter storm dubbed Hercules slammed the Northeast with stiff winds and punishing cold temperatures on Thursday, dumping nearly 2 feet of snow in parts of the region and threatening more.
The National Weather Service said 21 inches of snow had fallen in Boxford, just north of Boston, by Thursday night, while other parts of the state had 17 or 18 inches. It added that parts of upstate New York had received 18 inches while New York City was on course to get about 8.
With bone-chilling conditions that could freeze exposed skin in 15 minutes expected in the aftermath of the snowfall, authorities warned people to stay indoors and to only travel when necessary.¬† Read more »
For the time in more than 100 years snow has fallen in Egypt, and in Jerusalem.
Global Warming strikes again.
It’s a festive scene that’s adorned countless Christmas cards… and, for once, the Holy Land actually became a snow covered winter scene.
The ancient city of Jerusalem, which normally basks in fierce heat, was dusted with a light covering of snow during a freak blizzard.
And snow fell on the streets of Egypt for the first time in 112 years as one of the worst winter storms to hit the Middle East in living memory set in.
The rare sight of pristine white precipitation greeted stunned residents of Cairo this morning who took to social media to express their shock at the unsettling weather in the usually sweltering capital.
Actually, now that I think about it, we’re due a few decent anti-cyclones around Xmas and New Year, into January, to ensure we have the requisite shots on TV News of campers being flooded out.
