Yet another normal weather extreme for the deniers:

The heaviest snow in two decades has struck Tokyo and other areas across Japan, leaving at least seven people dead and more than 1,000 injured. Up to 27 centimetres of snow was recorded in Tokyo by late Saturday, the heaviest fall in the capital for 45 years, according to meteorologists.

The storm hit Tokyo on the eve of its gubernatorial election. Observers say the heavy snowfall may affect voter turnout in the city of 13 million people. As a depression moved along the Pacific coast on Saturday, the north-eastern city of Sendai saw 35 centimetres of snow, the heaviest in 78 years.

More evidence that deniers have no answer for:

"Last year tied 2007 as the sixth hottest on record since modern temperature records began in 1850, the World Meteorological Organization announced this week.
The news follows January announcements by NASA and NOAA that ranked 2013 differently among the hottest years on record, but they all add up to one thing: Earth's long-term warming trend showed no signs of stopping last year."

Oh I see, the Weather channel to Deniers must be like Fox news to Liberals. At least with Fox news we all get a laugh at the stupidity but the Weather channel, not so much!

We know that almost all deniers didn't take science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra, & pre-calc in their poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas. You say that you did, but still side with your deniers who didn't take science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra, & pre-calc in their poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas.

That means you voluntarily accepted untruth, instead of exploring truthful science.

What schools are you referring to? Those were common subjects when I was in school.We were not indoctrinated back then.Teachers actually taught and were not forced to indoctrinate students.Stuedents earned their hi skule dee-ploooomaas.We deniers are not part of the brain washed charles manson society of GW nut jobs.Your so-called science has been full of so-called scientist who have manipulated information an data, making it as unreliable as Hitlery during Benghazi.Go save a whale or a dolphin.
