Why is the media pretending not to know why we're having record-high temperatures?>

I'm not just talking about Fox! Earlier tonight, Brian Williams and a guy from the Weather Channel were discussing the non-winter most of the country is having, and they blamed it on the jet stream! Neither "global warming" or "climate change" were mentioned! And it's no different on ABC or CBS or any other of our networks.

On BBC, GW & CC are presently as FACTUAL, the way they ought to be. Our "free press" is bought and paid for!



This one is by a noobie probably looking for some traction.

Gee DUmmies, I don't ever remember a warm winter!!!! :sarcasm:
Next, when we don't have flooding in the Spring (assuming we don't), they'll be asking where is all the water??? :rolleyes:

A warm winter as proof of Global Warming Theology is as idiotic as a blizzard being evidence against Global Warming.

I'm just relieved not to be shoveling snow. It was 52 here on Saturday, and it's supposed to hit 45 today.

Default Why is the media pretending not to know why we're having record-high temperatures Perhaps the same reason they:
Pretended O Blah Blah had the right stuff to be president?
Pretended GW Bush didn't perform his military duties?
Pretend Conservatives are racists?
Pretend that liberal programs work?
Pretend not to notice record cold temps?:rolleyes:

What a maroon, as Bugs Bunny would say.

Whether you believe in Glo-bull warming wholeheartedly, prefer the vague 'Anthropogenic Global Climate Change' (So easy to claim events support it, no matter WHAT happens), think the science is crap but there may be an element of truth to it, or reject the whole thing completely -

It's STILL the jet stream that causes the current weather pattern.

We have another 5-6 inches of blizzard snow blowing today in sunny West Texas.
It's the third big snow storm we've had this winter, after being on fire all last summer. :confused:

And why don't you ask Alaska how that "Global Warming" is treating them?
In Alaska this winter, below 30-below is becoming normal (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/nationnow/2012/01/alaska-winter-cold-snow.html)

And why don't you ask Alaska how that "Global Warming" is treating them?I just read an article that the city of Cordova had 18 feet of snow, so far, this season. 18 feet? Yikes.

Me too. We closed our offices early and all area schools shut down at 1:00 today.
We won't have to show up till 10:00 or so in the morning. Out here, whenever
more than three flakes fall, everything shuts down! :p
I'm sure it will be back in the 70's by afternoon tomorrow. :(

Yes indeed. Off work early, nice pot of coffee, the interwebs, wrapped up
in a soft warm blankie with my dogs watching it snow giant flakes outside.
If only the maid and my personal chef and masseuse had shown up. ;)

Sounds like you need a new masseur....

Um....that guy is just a little creepy and has no hair on his chest.
Could you make him just a bit more Sean Connery-ish?

Lets see... last year record cold and snowfalls meant global warming. This year high temps mean global warming. Make your minds up. :rolleyes:

We ended up so far getting about 9 inches.
Whatever GW is causing this we are glad for it. :)

We got virtually zero rain for over a year.
These 3 snows were at least deep enough to
put some much needed moisture back in the ground.

What's happened to the Permian since I left? When I was in Lovington in '66 or 67 the school buses had snow tires and chains and Friday night football was only called if they couldn't find the stadium.

Check your map, Lovington is some north and west of "The Petroplex" Midland-Odessa.
There is usually a line along about Lovington through Seminole swooping across to Abilene
where the Panhandle snows peter out and turn to rain if anything by the time it gets here.
We normally get 2-3 snows a year, but it's usually just a light dusting. This year we've
been getting mega snows that you can actually have enough to build a snowman out of.

As Tanker said, it all just depends on how far south the jet-stream is blowing.

9 inches? I guess that the masseuse did show up after all. :D

We ended up officially getting 10.6" of snow, a new record.
Here's some pictures. This says we've had over 20" this year.
La Nina is our friend!

See? It's simple. The science is settled. Stop questioning, you idiot denier! Give all of your money to carbon offsets in Bangledesh and Nigeria and your soul will be absolved of your carbon sin.

I've posited that for years. I call the phenomenon "Global Lukewarming", or GLK. In order to deal with this, we have to sell carbon credits in warm areas and carbon debits in cold areas and ensure that they equal each other. I'm willing to undergo the rigors of selling the debits and running the exchange, since counting all of that money and then laundering, uh, I mean, investing it will be a full time job. :D

Why can't DUmmies ever enjoy anything? Instead of less days freezing your ass off, it's the world is ending.

At least look at the bright side. All this warm weather means less consumption of fossil fuels which will reduce global warming.

I lived in Lovington from 66-69 and then flew in and out of MAF and LBB on an almost continual basis for several years. I've been sitting here trying to remember some snowstorm or another that might have happened in the 1979-90 time frame and d***ed if you're not right. Every one of them was in NM. I remember a snowball fight in July above Carlsbad and having to wear a jacket every time I made a well trip at 2 am. It might hit 103 by 4 pm but it took all day to get there and cooled way down at night.
