December’s signs of imminent “Global Cooling”

It continues to amaze me how the global warming alarmists are quick to point to individual weather events as evidence for global warming.  No matter how many times it is pointed out that weather and climate are not the same thing, the headlines are sure to follow whenever a “pro-warmist” weather event occurs.  Inevitably, in these reports, some yahoo scientist is quoted as saying this is evidence of global warming.

Several years ago , Europe was experiencing a particularly warm winter and the global warming activists were tripping all over each other trying to get their names in the news with proclamations that  winter, as we know it, is a thing of the past.  We were told that school children in Europe were going to grow up without knowing what snow is.

Yesterday, a colleague (a science teacher) posted something on her face book page about a flood in Australia (on a river floodplain, no less) and some recent unusually warm weather in a small Canadian Arctic town with the implicit suggestion that these events were signs of global warming.  When I pointed out to her that flooding in that flood plain is not unusual her retort was to mention last year’s flooding in Pakistan (also on a flood plain) and asked the rhetorical question: “why is this planet becoming such a soggy mess?”  Of course it is not.   Oh, and that Canadian town– the warm spell she mentioned did not even come close to the record warm December temperatures experienced in the same location back in1952.

Anyone who has been paying attention to the news recently is familiar with the record cold and snow being reported in Europe.  The global warming people have even made a pathetic attempt at blaming this cold winter (the third straight one) on global warming.  Never mind that the same brutally cold weather conditions occurred in the southern hemisphere this past July and August.  When I read the nonsensical explanation for Britain’s cold spell I quickly realized that these AGW apologists apparently failed to notice the unusually cold conditions reported in the past month is such disparate places as the Middle East, the Korean peninsula, the Caribbean, the  U.S. and Canadian Pacific Northwest,  the U.S. and Mexican Southwest, China, and India.  Particularly embarrassing have been the reports of snow is Australia (it is the middle of summer down under)!  And here is a thought: If brutally cold temperatures in Europe are a sign of global warming then what would an unusually warm winter in Europe signify?  Just asking.

Well, as has become my monthly tradition I present here a menagerie of recent headlines from around the world.  I make no claims as to the climatic implications for these weather events.  I present them here merely to counter the drivel of selective weather reporting by the global warming activists.

    Wow, this is quite a collection. I am so glad you provide this antidote because because you are very correct about environmental wackos using every heat wave and drought etc. as evidence of global warming.

  2. sammisen says:

    If this wasn’t so sad it would be funny. Little wonder that those who are still screaming “global warming” are increasingly having a harder and harder time being taken seriously.

  3. johnathan_is_here says:

    Holy crap, Hatem. This must have taken a king time to compile. I was just in Germany and just form anectodal evidence from the people there they are fed up with all the global warming they have been having.

  4. jozie says:

    I wish someone would push all of this global warming stuff off my street. We have been snowbound for over 24 hours now.

    How you make this a regular monthly feature. Love it!
