When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

Super good news for the Arctic. The newest and best modeling shows more snow for the polar regions. Global warming it seems increases snow in these areas, as to the old science of yesterday when it was thought that global warming would melt the polar icecaps.
From the paper published in Journal of Climate: In very cold regions of the globe, how­ever, snow­fall will rise because as air warms it can hold more mois­ture, lead­ing to increased pre­cip­i­ta­tion in the form of snow. The researchers found that regions in and around the Arc­tic and Antarc­tica will get more snow than they now receive.

Doesn't much matter if the poles continue to warm. All that snow will do what snow does when the air warms. Let me explain. It melts.

But thanks for apprising us of Anthony Watts' latest spin.

The increase in polar snow means the oceans won't be rising as predicted. The glaciers won't be receding as predicted. Global warming causes the warm air to hold more moisture, so as long as the coastal regions hit freezing, they should still get snow. So you should be happy to not have to worry about that arctic melt anymore and that the seas won't be rising at a catastophic rate. Crisis averted thanks to new and improved computer modeling.
There's optimism.

Then there's stupidity.

WASHINGTON — Earth's increasingly hot, wet climate has cut the amount of work people can do in the worst heat by about 10 percent in the past six decades, and that loss in labor capacity could double by mid-century, U.S. government scientists reported on Sunday.

Because warmer air can hold more moisture than cooler air, there's more absolute humidity in the atmosphere now than there used to be. And as anyone who has sweltered through a hot, muggy summer knows, it's more stressful to work through hot months when the humidity is high.

To figure out the stress of working in hotter, wetter conditions, experts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration looked at military and industrial guidelines already in place for heat stress, and set those guidelines against climate projections for how hot and humid it's likely to get over the next century.

Their findings were stark: "We project that heat stress-related labor capacity losses will double globally by 2050 with a warming climate," said lead author John Dunne of NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton.

Work capability is already down to 90 percent during the most hot and humid periods, Dunne and his co-authors wrote in the journal Nature Climate Change. Using a middle-of-the-road projection of future temperature and humidity, they estimate that could drop to 80 percent by 2050.

I wish more people were aware of the fact that it’s now relatively cheap to run a home solar power system. Some people are even taking themselves off the grid altogether now… There are some great guides out there on how to do this, some of which are listed on this site www.diyenergyreview.com if you’re interested?

Like I said, you're talking to the wrong guy. If you have HALF a gonad & disagree with Wiki, then YOU sign of there & tell them exactly how they're wrong. If you have facts & logic on your side, in the small-D democratic environment of Wiki, you'll prevail.
Otherwise, around here, S.T.F.U. PERIOD.
No, Wiki is NOTHING like the Enquirer. You, however, appear to be not only a coward, but psychotically detached from reality. PERIOD.
Really, then lets look at what William Connolley was doing at Wikipedia. He was an editor and was deleting or changing entries that he disagreed with and banned those with opposing views. The straw that broke wikipedia's back was comments attributed to one individual that he had not said. He tried to remove the inaccurate quote only to have Connolley replace it (a common tactic on Wikipeida) and had to resort to legal action before they would remove it to only have Connolley replace it again. Finally Wikipedia had to remove Connelley. Considering that he had entered or edited over five thousand entries on the subject of climate change means that unless Wikipeida would dump the entire subject and start over it will be haunted by those errors for decades.

Of course those are not the only entries that have been found to be biased. Wikipedia has a host of people intentionally editing in favor of one agenda or another. The reason why professors will not accept it as a source.

And for your small-D democratic environment of wikipedia has become stagent. The number of people contributing has cease to increase and the same stale individuals are now the ones making entries, turning it into more of a dictatorship in the flavor of China or the former USSR.

Thank goodness for people like him trying to keep morons like you off Wikpedia.

You already have your own version anyway- the science denial Conservapedia- where you can read the views of cranks and charlatans on everything from quantum physics to evolution to global warming.

Wikipedia reflects the scientific consensus from the scientific literature, and long may it do so. No, your ignorance is not as good as their knowledge.

Piss off back to the dark ages where you belong.

Your source for this information is Mark Moran. That disqualifies you.

Teener's living right there in the worst of it and yet she continues to deny.

<><><>< ><><><> <><><>< ><><>

Built at sea level on reclaimed wetland, Norfolk has faced floods throughout its 400-year history. But as the Atlantic Ocean warms and expands, and parts of the city subside, higher tides and fiercer storms seem to hit harder than they used to.

Dealing with this increased threat has put Norfolk at the forefront of American cities taking the lead on coping with intense weather, from floods to droughts to killer heat, without waiting for the federal government to take the lead.

In Norfolk, home to the largest U.S. Naval base and the second biggest commercial port on the U.S. Atlantic coast, floods are a perennial problem that has worsened in recent decades, Assistant City Manager Ron Williams Jr told Reuters.

The relative sea level around Norfolk has risen 14.5 inches (.37 meter) since 1930, when the low-lying downtown area routinely flooded. The floods are worse now, because the water doesn't have to rise as high to send the river above its banks and into the streets, Williams said.

At the same time, severe storms are more frequent.

"We've had more major storms in the past decade than we've had in the previous four decades," he said.

Extreme rainfall events have increased too.

And? So?

You think it's somehow odd that there are editing wars, or that one person was found to be biased? The mere fact that the editing war occurred, & that much of what Connolley said was removed, makes my point that Wiki tends to move toward the truth.

It's arrantly ABSURD to compare Wiki to a communist state where the party has control over everything. Wiki is a DEMOCRATIC environment where anyone can sign on, the exact opposite of totalitarian control.

Wiki is still a good starting place because they link to other sources. You can check everything they say.

You're STILL complaining in the wrong place. If you think Wiki is wrong, then YOU should sign on there & tell them just that.

Erratum:

I should have included, in my first long paragraph, the caveat "assumming your account of what happened with Connolley is correct." I'm not necessarily conceding that, given what I know about your other posts & how much you misunderstand scientific facts.
