Not Really...

If you understood the mechanisms behind global warming, you would know that it will disrupt the planetary environment, it isn't going to burn it up. There are going to be strange weather events all over the world which also include snow in places that don't normally receive it, multiple hurricanes hitting the same state in the same year, hurricanes in the southern hemisphere which have never before seen hurricanes in all recorded history, unusual and heavy rainfall flooding areas that haven't been flooded in centuries, long droughts in places that normally receive heavy rainfall, etc, etc, etc.

This story only confirms that the weather is strange and getting stranger every day and confirms the predictions that go along with global warming...

Another one of those 'theories' that can adapt to any data,

Global warming involves substantial disruption

in conventional weather patterns, viz.Dubai. What are far more important are global Averages, which are still trending upwards.

What you have posted is enirely consistent with global warming predictions, e.g. increased pecipitation in some areas and decreased in others.

(In case you don't know this: deserts typically have extremes of temperatures, because of lack of cloud cover ... it actually has to be warm enough to snow).

I assume that you are a "global warming sceptic".

Me too to some extent, but you have just undermined my scepticism ... ain't that ironic!

I'm not a sceptic. I would love to see the earth get colder.

I LIKE the cold. I fully support the desire to banish all of this warm/hot weather. Wink

I just might join ...

if you start a movement.

Soon-enough we will have days of 40C+ and have already had a few around 38C.

So, on reflection, count me in.

Cheers, Gerry

I prefer it warm/hot. So like Putin when talking about how it might be beneficial to Siberia, I wouldn't mind a little Global Warming as long as it only affected Florida without adversely affecting anyone else...
