  2. Using extreme, localized, short-term weather events like this is generally the worst argument for or against global warming.

    • True, but the “for” side always uses them, no matter what the extreme (too much rain, too little rain, too hot, too cold, lots of hurricanes, no hurricanes — global warming!) Somehow it’s only wrong when the “anti” side uses them.

      • Correct. “Extreme” weather or record cold and hots are always pushed by the climate change crowd as proof.

        I can’t remember if it was last year or the year before, but there were a lot of tornadoes and the climate change crowd used that as proof that climate change is real.

    • Extreme weather is a much worse argument against global warming than for it.

    • Global warming is unfalsifiable. If it’s hot out, that’s evidence of global warming. If it’s cold out, weather isn’t climate!

  3. The fact that it’s getting colder, is proof that it’s getting warmer. Why are you too stupid to understand that? Are you secretly a Republican?

    • “The fact that it’s getting colder, is proof that it’s getting warmer.”

      Lol! That’s perfect.

    • And yet you’re the one who sees a record cold month in one city as evidence of the earth getting cooler.

  4. It is called climate change now.

    NYC is probably a very vulnerable place to be in 20 years time. I don’t know how tall a sea wall you would need to protect Manhattan, but it will take a feat of engineering to protect all the coastal areas.

    All evidence points to an increasingly warm world. Climate is a large and complex thing to predict, but warming is happening on global scale. It honestly doesn’t matter what climate denier might say, we human beings can’t fool mother nature.

    • If people really believed that, why aren’t they selling their overpriced co-ops in Manhattan and moving someplace safer?

      • Exactly. NYC real estate would be tanking.

      • Yes, it’s amazing how the 9-11 attacks ACTUALLY made lower Manhattan a desirable place to live.

      • I think global warming will be a good thing overall as it will increase temperate forest growth dramatically and allow, e.g., crops to be grown in Siberia.

        Still it’s easy to see how warming could cause colder winters. There will always be cold at the poles in winter. https://i.4cdn.org/b/1424786278838.jpgIncreased and earlier heating at the equator will produce more convection and drag the cold air down further.

        Without looking, I predict it’s above average temps in Venezuela. I will check and report back if wrong.

    • I doubt a sea wall would be that expensive to construct. The current projected sea level rise like one feet by 2050. Even if you account for stronger hurricanes and higher storm surges, it shouldn’t be that much.

  7. We had 1-4 inches of snow this past week in upper Carolinas (Charlotte, Asheville, Spartanburg), small dusting in GA mountains.

    Your blizzard prediction almost came true.
