After a very brief warm-up, the temperatures look to be well below normal again. The high temps should be in the mid-30s instead of the lower 20s. But eventually it has to warm up.
Meanwhile, reports of colder than usual weather all over the world have been pouring in since the beginning of 2008. Arctic ice... you know the stuff that was going to disappear and leave the polar bears stranded in the ocean... has roared back with a vengeance.
Don Surber has a litany of record cold temperatures for February.
But all we hear about is global warming... which is simply not happening. The full story will eventually come out about how an erroneous assumption about climate and CO2 was compounded by inappropriate adjustments to weather data records and further compounded by weather stations that have been situated improperly or impacted by encroaching buildings or pavement or equipment to cause artificially high readings.
That story will eventually explain how the scientists who really didn't have a good handle on climate dynamics were able to convince politicians and the general public that billions or trillions of dollars were needed to correct this terrible situation caused by man.
The story will eventually show that even after the climate did not follow dire predictions, those scientists and politicians were so invested in the error that they couldn't reverse their positions and continued to push for solutions to a problem that didn't exist... claiming that record cold temperatures were evidence of global warming.
Finally, that story will eventually conclude that the real emergency facing the world was the need to develop energy sources to deal with the demands of a growing population...
- demands that could not be met quickly enough by unreliable "alternative" energy sources...
- energy needed to heat the homes of people living in areas not benefiting from the global warming that never arrived...
- energy to produce more electricity to support more business and industry than our present grid can output
