I never realized there were so many scientists on this website. Especially those who study meteorology. Comforting to know we have so many of them looking out for us and presenting us with all of this good, hard science that proves beyond a doubt the anthropogenic weather conditions.

"It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM," John Coleman wrote in an article published on ICECAP, the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project, which is known for challenging widely published theories on global warming.
The maverick weather forecaster is known for his regular critique of widely accepted global warming theories. The Weather Channel broadcasts weather forecasts and weather-related news in the US 24 hours a day.
The fact is the weather pattern all over the world is changing, and for every year the change are getting more and more evident.
In reality it could be a combination on natural cause and manmade cause, no one is absolutly sure about that yet i think.

So sorry wrabbit. send some rain my way but no snow okay..
Be safe out there on the roads.

Global Warming is not the warming of the upper atmosphere it is the warming of the lower atmosphere, where we live... the troposphere.
The ramifications of the global cooling cycle for the next 30 years are far reaching―e.g., failure of crops in critical agricultural areas (it’s already happening this year), increasing energy demands, transportation difficulties, and habitat change. All this during which global population will increase from six billion to about nine billion. The real danger in spending trillions of dollars trying to reduce atmospheric CO2 is that little will be left to deal with the very real problems engendered by global cooling.
CONCLUSIONS Global warming (i.e, the warming since 1977) is over. The minute increase of anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere (0.008%) was not the cause of the warming—it was a continuation of natural cycles that occurred over the past 500 years. The PDO cool mode has replaced the warm mode in the Pacific Ocean, virtually assuring us of about 30 years of global cooling, perhaps much deeper than the global cooling from about 1945 to 1977. Just how much cooler the global climate will be during this cool cycle is uncertain. Recent solar changes suggest that it could be fairly severe, perhaps more like the 1880 to 1915 cool cycle than the more moderate 1945-1977 cool cycle. A more drastic cooling, similar to that during the Dalton and Maunder minimums, could plunge the Earth into another Little Ice Age, but only time will tell if that is likely.

This freak snowstorm has absolutely everything to do with Global Warming. It's an assumption that Global Warming means warmer weather everywhere, eventually yes, that will be the case but as we approach a warmer global mean temperature it will throw weather patterns totally out of whack.
It's a tough thing to understand. Less ice at the top of the world, often considered the planet's thermostat, might normally signal warmer global temperatures, not colder ones.
But the way weather works isn't so simple. Without a substantial ice cover, Arctic wind is less constrained. The jet stream—the belt of cool air that regulates weather around most of the Northern Hemisphere—then dips farther and farther south, bringing cold air from the Arctic closer to the Equator.
The result is much colder weather dipping into the spring much longer, and more forcefully, than normal. (See a world map of potential global warming impacts.)
So Wrabbit , while you may take issue with us Global Warming people, it's exactly as climate science has been saying, weather patterns will destabilize, most notably heavier precipitation when it does rain or snow, actually just more extreme weather in general exacerbated droughts, hurricanes etc. You just happen to be in an area affected by a destabilized jet stream that is pulling northern weather down to you.edit on 3-5-2013 by Kali74 because: (no reason given)
