"Around normal". It will still be above average. Back to my point, if you're going to point out an 'arctic blizzard' during a climate change discussion you cant just ignore the fact that there's a 60° jump in some areas less than a week later.

Im not disappointed. Warm weather is nice. It's good for my banana plant.

You are right, it is regional. Its also regional when water is pushing into people's homes because of the rising sea level too. Its all data that has to be included in the discussion. Just because you arent being affected doesnt mean someone else isnt, and vice versa.

it will be 70 today here in Virginia.

Dont bother.... the fact that weather and climate are not the same thing is lost here.
Dont waste your keystrokes.

A little scientific deducing may be in order here.

Cloudy days retain the heat of day whereas clear days do not. Now when there is snow on the ground and there are no clouds, that heat is reflected back towards space. If there is no smog from pollution due to discontinuing all forms of fossil fuels, then we are solely relying on cloud cover to retain heat from the sun.

Lithium has long been used to treat mania in people with bipolar disorder, but like all of Earth’s resources it is finite. The more we use lithium batteries for electric cars, laptops, smart watches, etc. the less lithium we have to treat crazy people on manic highs.

And since mania often is the latching on to an idea and running with it without studying the consequences of those actions, and all the lithium production is going towards green energy storage products.

We might be able to conclude that just like smog is the side effect of fossil fuels; that misinformed nutters acting on impulse rather than rational thought are the side effect of green energy.

This seems to come out as not efficiently keeping warm is crazy. Quite a few might agree.

That's the beauty of civil liberty.

They don't have to be explained to anyone.

Actually, the forecast is for about 5 degrees below average.

But your point is accurate. The problem is that those who cry doom and gloom because the carbon boogeyman is coming to get them will latch onto the 60 degree jump as absolute proof that the we're all going to freeze in a fiery flood in two weeks. So if it's an argument for them, the reverse is an argument for me. It's a two-way sword, and I'm not the one who picked the weapons.

Good for my ability to work outside, too. I have Primary Raynaud's Syndrome. Cold freakin' hurts.

I wonder if there's any grant money in that concept? if I worded the proposal to implicate I expect the 'nutter' to be right wing... hmm...

We first need to fix stupid, then we can afford the time and effort involved to give a damn or two about the energy needs for a sustainable future.

AOC is a swath of stupid all her own that we need deal with.

There is nothing wrong with trying to make our world greener, and more energy efficient.

And it's ridiculous to keep claiming that a localized snow storm is proof of "global" warming. It was stupid when Trump said it, stupider when he said it again, and stupider yet again when supposedly smart people repeat his stupid, baseless comments.

An argument can be made about the WHY.. but there is no doubt about the fact that it IS happening. And not doing something to try and mitigate it because we are not positive about the cause is lunacy. Our children and their children I'm sure, won't appreciate our short shortsightedness and stubbornness.

I don't think you realize that climate change/global warming has many effects on global weather. Blizzards are weather and not climate. There's a big difference It all comes down to this. The earth really is warming--that's overall average temperature of the earth. However, that warming will cause all kinds of different regional weather changes. It could be colder in some areas and warmer in others, blizzards here, droughts there. It won't all be uniform. You should try to understand climate and weather a little better.

It is you who keeps not understanding that even during Climate Change weather events will continue happening... But too many people are too blind, too arrogant, and too focused on themselves to even comprehend what others are discussing.

Where in the world did I state the weather is the climate?... Seriously, how many times does it have to be pointed out? It appears those of you who keep making this claim didn't even graduate from kindergarten. You have no reading comprehension whatsoever despite the fact that it has been explained to you, and others, many times.

EVEN DURING CLIMATE CHANGES WEATHER EVENTS LIKE THE POLAR VORTEX THAT JUST OCCURRED WILL CONTINUE TO OCCUR...

The argument is, if AOC and her clowns get their way banning all fossil fuels, how will people be able to heat or cool their houses during extreme weather events?...

Extreme weather events include very cloudy days that can last a week or more. How are people going to heat their houses, keep their fridges and lights working when solar panels will only work at 15-25% of their total capacity?

You want to know what happens if AOC, and those of you who agree with her, will cause to the U.S.? Just take a look at Venezuela...

It's in the title of your thread. Re read the title. We can absolutely take care of almost all of our energy needs with renewables and better storage capacity. And I think that you need to research AOC and Venezuela. Venezuela had actual socialists in charge. AOC not really a socialist.

You are INSANE...

The title doesn't say Climate Change is the weather like you, and some others falsely claim I stated... It is you, among some others, who needs reading comprehension classes.

AOC wants to tax rich people 70-90% of their income taxes... She wants to have the government own and control all means of production... You can change the name to "unicorn socialists for change" and it will continue to be socialism...

What would this country do without wise and progressive thinkers such as yourself? Those Democrats are so dumb. They didn't think about what they are trying to do.

Ok so here's the actual thread title.

Climate Change Laws Implemented by AOC, then Another Arctic Blizzard Occurs in Several States.

Several things wrong with it, first AOC can't implement laws. She's just one freshman Congresswoman. Thread implies (And of course it could just be my take on things) that you talk about Climate change/Global warming and then a Blizzard hits-negating the need for these "climate Laws".

2nd, when you talk about AOC, she's more in line with Denmark and Norway than Venezuela. So I'm not sure why you would bring up Venezuela? You haven't researched these current liberals?

It's okay not to like Denmark and Norway...We just need to all be talking about the same things here.

Well, no, she wants to tax them 70% of all their income above a certain level. What, 3.5 million a year or something like that? So any money they make over 3.5 million will get taxed at that rate. Also, the government owning and controlling means of production is state capitalism. It would only be socialism if the actual workers all shared ownership of their means of production. There’s a huge difference there. Let me explain

. In your scenario, which is state capitalism, the government and its representatives decide how all businesses are run, and what is done with the profit.

In socialism, all the folk working at, say a car factory, they all have a say in how that factory is run, they all have shared ownership, and decide as a group things like who gets what compensation, what kind of cars to build, etc.
And each business is run like this, with its own owners and it’s own democratically selected rules etc.

See the difference there? You can call the government owning the means of production socialism all you want, but it’s still state capitalism. There, I fixed it for you.
