Forest Lake / Broadway project contractor chosen

There are 24 comments on the TwinCities.com story from Apr 26, 2011, titled Forest Lake / Broadway project contractor chosen. In it, TwinCities.com reports that:

It is axiomatic that in any New York Times story about any aspect of the weather, it is only a matter of time before the reporter - they appear to be operating from a set of instructions - inserts the required admonition about global warming, which is now more frequently called climate change and might soon return to being called global cooling.

Thankfully, Soucheray wrote this before he was notified of the death of Madame Nhu, otherwise he would miss the deadline as he sits alone in the Big Garage weeping inconsolably into a glass of warm beer.

For those who are too young or have short memories, check Madame Nhu's obiturary. Michelle Bachmann and Michelle Obama? Sarah Palin and Amy Klobuchar? Amateurs! The Dragon Lady was a professional!

And in her time, a pinup girl for good old "Souch".

"... the tornado does not take that into consideration."

Is Joe suggesting that we get smarter tornado's? I think the tornado's are a product of the Southern school system that G-Dub tried to press on the rest of the nation via No Child Left Behind.

Finally, someone who has the courage to tell it like it is!! The same applies to flood areas. When are people going to wake up and quit blaming some unknown cause for simple unchangeable acts of nature? Thank you Mr Soucheray!

Thanks for the common sense Joe and not reaching for the standard template climate change vudu, used by the left as a platform to increase taxes and control other people's choices.

What this article forgets to mention is that we have media coverage of EVERYTHING. The combo of more population and obesessive media coverage of everything from high profile crimes to somebody picking their nose on a sidewalk has contributed to what appears to be more disasters. The same goes for earthquakes.

If you actually look at real weather data (which for some reason news outlets just fail to do) you will see that nothing we are going through is abnormal when you don't exclude data that does not support an argument that you created yourself.

Not only are there more people to witness a tornado but also the technology to detect tornadoes is much better today than it was a decade ago. When we start using better technology and have more observers, the number of recorded tornadoes is going to increase. Joe is right, the idea of global warming/cooling/climate change is irrelevant since there is no demonstrated link between such physical phenomena and the number of tornadoes reported.

Once again Soucheray has a terrific commentary on the usual hysteria that accompanies a change in the weather, even the KFAN morning crew was speculating wildly about tornadoes being the harbinger of climatic DOOM. Then, at the end, he gives an unexpected hat-tip to one of the best early 80's metal bands ... Lewis Sinclair: YOu've got a another thing coming!

Joe hates suburbia. Now we know that Joe is an official anti-sprawl liberal.
Yeah, he claims to be against global warming, but he only mentions it to push the
social programming against suburban development. Go tornados, kill the sprawl.

Hey Nutjob...This is an article about how there are not really more tornados than there used to be, but only more coverage of them. Anytime you want to join us here in the real world, feel free.

"According to a Gallup poll conducted in 2010 and released April 22, 2011, residents of the world are more likely to attribute global warming to human activity, rather than nature. When asked specifically about rising temperatures, 35% of adults in 111 countries said warmer temperatures were a result of human activity, while 14% blame nature. Those who faulted both represented 13% of those surveyed.

In the United States, where 4% of those surveyed were unaware of global warming, 34% blame human activity, 47% blame nature, and 14% blame both."

The 47% blaming nature was twice the percentage of any other country. The lack of science literacy in the U.S. is amazing.

The world has been around since way before 1820. It is easy to take any graph based on averages and squish it into a way that makes the changes look more dramatic. You don't know that if you were to take those same averages and stretch it out over a far more relevant amount of time that the line would not be straight, or that the actual averege now is lower than it was say 300 years ago. Not to mention that most of you idiots haven't even bothered to factor into your formula that the earth wobbles and does not always orbit on the same exact path. The changes in the distance from the sun and/or how directly the land is facing the sun alone could easily account for a silly 1 degree temperature variation on average.

Your idiot offspring will be around in another 100 years when the earth is cooling by 1 or 2 degrees again and there will be a big global conspiracy over global cooling and how we are too green. Now it will be our fault that polar bears are freezing to death...

Climates will change and the planet will die. There is NOTHING we can do about it.

Who gives a shit what people think? That is not actual scientific data, that is just a poll of people's opinions. I bet if people would stop feeding off of other people's stupidity and actually looked at real data that is very easy to find there would be a whole different set of results.
