The Baby's Fever Gets Worse...





MONTHLY WEATHER SUMMARIES

MARCH

NEAR-RECORD COLD IN ALASKA AND ABUNDANT SNOW IN THE SOUTHEAST

Strong and widespread cold described March this year all across Alaska. Temperatures throughout the mainland were more than 8°F below average and the most extreme temperature departures of more than 16°F below average were observed in the central Interior. Areas along the Arctic coast and the southeast panhandle had relative warmth with temperature departures less than 8°F below average. The portions of the state that had extreme cold also received little in the way of precipitation as clear and sunny skies dominated. A location that received more than its fair share of snowfall was Juneau, breaking daily, monthly, and seasonal snowfall records.

Damn that climate change. Its everywhere.

opps, I meant this link for the climate change not warmer temps like the previous link

Maybe the baby's name is El Nino.

El Niño and La Niña are officially defined as sustained sea surface temperature anomalies of magnitude greater than 0.5°C across the central tropical Pacific Ocean

Global warming has caused a world wide temp increase of at least 0.32°C which will increase to over 0.5°C in the next 10 years.


FUNNY isn't it people have no problem atributing this years current climate shifts to a small regional warming (el nino)....... but will deny a global shift of a similar magnitude will have no effect on the climate

BTW
global warming is very likely effecting the el nino cycle so you can't really separate the two now

Obviously, you can't separate Global Warming from anything.

Facts back up Global warming... show me facts that refute it and myself and the rest of the scientific community will listen.


In the mean time will you listen to the science and the facts?

Here are the facts:

Fact: An increase in CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere does trap heat.

However:

CO2 makes up .054 (point-zero-five-four)% of all gases in the atmosphere.

Of that .054%, greenhouse gases make up a small percentage.

Of that small percentage, 95% is water vapor (a greenhouse gas).

Of that 95%, 99.999% is of natural origin.

Human beings cause .001% of remaining water vapor and a small percentage (if not percentile) of the remaining 5% of greenhouse gases.

Spin it any you want. Fossil fuel consumption is implicated, but a bit player in the equation (which itself is algebraic and riddled with variables), and you know it.

The solar flares and volcanic activity are behind the wheel of this (with bovine herds in the passenger seat). We're in the backseat smoking cigarettes.

And playing backseat driver while trying to read Byzantine roadmaps.

The consensus:

"Maybe we should just put out our cigarettes?"

"Well, we just can't sit here! We gotta do sumthin'!"

And let me tell you something else, Neo, and listen carefully: Having Bill Clinton (behind the Clinton Global Initiative), Al Gore, and a cabal at the UN as the frontmen for this is not doing the credibility factor any favors, to be sure.

Well I honestly layed out the facts for you. I references the sources - the scientific journal papers, the government web sites (Bush administration mind you)and the data that clearly lays out the global warming dynamics.

You obviously either haven't read any of them. Or are ignoring them and making up stuff because none of what you say is supported by facts.

In fact you haven't referenced a single one of your misguided ideas to an actual legitamate data source.


Bill Clinton? Al Gore?

talk to these people....

The only spin I see is your complete ignorance of the science.

You are a good natured person, honest, and participting in good faith, and I appreciate that. I've also learned more about the subject thanks to you (thank you).

Nevertheless, can you honestly say that there is a UNANIMOUS consensus among climatologists on this?

You can't.

You said:

"...none of what you say is supported by facts."

"None?"

"Fact: An increase in CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere does trap heat."

That's not a fact?

"CO2 makes up .054 (point-zero-five-four)% of all gases in the atmosphere."

That's not a fact?

"Of that .054%, greenhouse gases make up a small percentage.

Of that small percentage, 95% is water vapor (a greenhouse gas).

Of that 95%, 99.999% is of natural origin.

"None" of those are facts, Neo?
