I was swimming in the ocean a few weeks ago thinking to myself, damn that's warm. Somewhere in Australia right now the temps are +40c. If you think global warming has no merit simply because you live in the Northern Hemisphere, does that mean you think it's legit so long as you were in the opposite side of the world?
Someone mentioned Australia and how Hot it was.
I called my husbands friend he retired with, He moved there to get away from his Crazy Ex.
He said that he had a skiing trip planned from Wednesday thru to next Sunday at the Ben Lomond Ski Resort and it was cold there.
So I looked it up.
Snow Forecast and Weather Outlook for Ben Lomond, Australia. Covering the period from Monday 6th January 2014 to Monday 13th January 2014.
Ben Lomond Snow Forecast
Looks like Great Skiing.

Flurries hit southeast Australia as towns record their first-ever summer snowfalls
Snow fell to 3,000 feet (900 metres) above sea level Monday in parts of New South Wales and Victoria states, Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Jane Golding said.
“Any time of year, it’s unusual to have snow down that far,” she said.
The next part is really interesting.
The town of Bombala in New South Wales, east of Kosciuszko, recorded its first summer snow since the bureau began keeping records there in 1965, Golding said.
The town of Cooma, also in New South Wales but north of Kosciuszko, recorded its first summer snow since records were first kept in 1973.
Evidently you don't read each post or did you fail to just read this one.
But Lindzen rejects the dire projections. For one thing, he says that the Summary for Policymakers is an inherently problematic document. The IPCC report itself, weighing in at thousands of pages, is “not terrible. It’s not unbiased, but the bias [is] more or less to limit your criticism of models,” he says. The Summary for Policymakers, on the other hand—the only part of the report that the media and the politicians pay any attention to—“rips out doubts to a large extent. . . . [Furthermore], government representatives have the final say on the summary.” Thus, while the full IPPC report demonstrates a significant amount of doubt among scientists, the essentially political Summary for Policymakers filters it out.
Via Real Science:
In 1974, Time Magazine blamed the cold polar vortex on global cooling.
'Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.'

In Africa, drought continues for the sixth consecutive year, adding terribly to the toll of famine victims. During 1972 record rains in parts of the U.S., Pakistan and Japan caused some of the worst flooding in centuries. In Canada's wheat belt, a particularly chilly and rainy spring has delayed planting and may well bring a disappointingly small harvest. Rainy Britain, on the other hand, has suffered from uncharacteristic dry spells the past few springs. A series of unusually cold winters has gripped the American Far West, while New England and northern Europe have...
Award-winning Princeton University Physicist Dr. Will Happer rejected the media and some scientists claims that the record U.S. cold is due to man-made global warming. Happer, explained the science in an exclusive interview with Climate Depot.
“Polar vortices have been around forever. They have almost nothing to do with more CO2 in the atmosphere,” Happer said in an exclusive interview with Climate Depot.
Happer continued: “Here is a thumbnail sketch of the physics. The poles have little sunshine even in summer, but especially in winter, like now in the Arctic. So the air over the poles rapidly gets bitterly cold because of radiation to dark space, with negligible replenishment of heat from sunlight. The sinking cold air is replaced by warmer air flowing in from the south at high altitudes. Since the earth is rotating, the air flowing in from the south has to start rotating faster to the west, just like a figure skater rotates faster if she pulls in her arms. This forms the polar vortex. The extremely cold air at the bottom of the vortex can be carried south by meanders of the jet stream at the edge of the vortex. We will have to live with polar vortices as long as the sun shines and the earth rotates.
I don't want to be the guy to tell you...
But the cold that's now freezing up US soil. It is not proof, or any sort of sign, that says the climate won't get warmer, or colder.
It is a result of arctic cold getting blown into the continent, without anything blocking it's way.
Like a yet stream maybe, or a mountain range.

Global warming is pseudo science used to drive a political and economic agenda.
Why do you think Al Gore signed onto it?
