Gore Says Cold and Snow Consistent With Global Warming

    Al must be running out of money and needs a fresh infusion of taxpayer money into the Global Warming fight. Does he really know how silly these statements are?


    Just a few years ago the Global Warming scientists were telling us that snow fall was going to become a rare event. Well, Chicago is getting another 2 feet of that rare event this week!

  2. a little education might be helpful. the earth is 3/4 water. warmer ocean temps cause more evaporation. when that moist air moves over the colder landmass in the winter it turns into snow. is it really that hard to understand?
  3. Doubt if thats part of the curriculum at Glenn Beck U.
  4. What's hard to understand is WHY you think this silly explanation bolsters your opinion.
  5. it seems you have to keep it simple on et. it really shouldnt have to be explained.

  7. So what you are saying is warmer temperatures make colder temperatures...so explain to me again how colder temperatures help evaporation?

    If its getting colder, than means that the ice caps that Gore says were melting are, as we speak, replacing themselves which means, no global warming. It just means weather is cyclical.

    I suppose you can thank the inventor of the internet (Al Gore) for your being able to access that educational information to enlighten us with. lol

    It's Not Global Warming
    by Robert E. Stevenson, an oceanography consultant based in Hawaii, trains the NASA astronauts in oceanography and marine meteorology

    (1) For the past two decades at least, and possibly for the past seven decades, the Earth’s true surface air temperature has likely experienced no net change;

    (2) there should have been a sizable CO2-induced increase in atmospheric radiative forcing during that time, but there wasn’t. That must mean that a suite of compensatory feedbacks overwhelmed the “greenhouse” impetus for warming; implying, therefore,

    (3) that the planet will not warm from any man-produced increases in CO2; indicating

    (4) any increases in temperature will likely fit the global trend of +0.048°C/decade, that is, about 0.5°C this century— the rate of warming that has existed since the Little Ice Age, centered around 1750 in Europe, South America, and China; suggesting

    (5) that the heat storage in the upper ocean takes place in the upper 100 meters, and the magnitude provides a rise in temperature at those depths of 0.5°C in the past 50 years (in those parts of the ocean for which we have data);

    (6) this global warming (and cooling) of the ocean occurs on biennial, ENSO, decadal and interdecadal period scales; thence,

    (7) the ocean thermal changes on centennial-period scales, which appear as the warming trend through the past 50 to 100 years, can be explained by means of intrinsic internal modes of the Earth going through their normal cycle of warming and cooling, independent of both radiative and anthropogenic influences.
