How is the northern hemisphere enjoying their global warming then?

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 »

How’s that global warming feeling?

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 »

Global warming strikes again, wonder how many Eco-loons are snowed in?

A snowpocalypse has descended on the Northeast US.

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 »

Looks like Global Warming is giving it a miss again

Several news items suggest that despite the moaning and propaganda of the warmists it appears that global warming is nowhere to be seen, even in the summer of the Antarctic.

An Antarctic-bound ship spent Christmas awaiting rescue after the ship became wedged in thick sheets of sea ice.

The ice-breaker Akademik Shokalski set sail for the sub- Antarctic and Antarctica from Bluff on a mission of science and discovery, which sailed on November 28.

The month-long Australasian Antarctic Expedition is following in the footsteps of explorer and scientist Sir Douglas Mawson, one century on.

Central Otago woman Nicole Kerr is one of the crew members.

Omakau-raised Ms Kerr was on board the Akademik Shokalski as a chef.

The ship had been on a multi-day tour from New Zealand to visit several sites along the edge of Antarctica.The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) received a distress call on this morning, notifying the rescue co-ordination centre that the ship was trapped in ice and would need help.

It is not known how long the ship has been unable to break free from the ice floes. ? Read more »

Loads of Global Warming in the UK

Looks like loads of global warming is affecting the UK:

Snowfall will cause disruption across the country, the Met Office has warned, with freezing temperatures expected to last through the half term into March.

Up to four inches of snow is expected across the UK overnight on Sunday as a band of rain turns to snow.

Forecasters warned that the Midlands, East Anglia and parts of Wales will be worst affected, with the possibility of snowfall and icy roads in London as rush hour hits.

Thousands of gritters have been sent out and Network Rail is preparing trains for ice and snow. Sleet and snowfall around Heathrow and other major airports may cause disruption.? Read more »
