Records broken as cold grips W.Va.

Jan 7, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: NewsandSentinel.com

A cold snap prompted a West Virginia ski resort to shut its slopes Tuesday, broke a century-old temperature record in at least one city and public school students in all 55 counties were told to stay home on perhaps the most frigid day in their lifetimes.

I guess that could be true. They sure do not have any balls to do anything.

Lmao...And the global warming "research team" that set out to prove that the antartic was melting got stuck in the tremendously thick ice...and so did the rescue ship...lol..you cant make this stuff up.
"I just can't help wondering what it was that the team of global warming researchers were looking to prove when they ventured into the Antarctic with a ship and got stuck in the ice. As of this writing they are still stuck. I thought global warming was "settled science". If that's the case why venture into the Antarctic? Exactly what is it that they were expected to find? Think about it, if they went any farther they would have come across more ice, snow and miserably cold temperatures. Were they thinking they would find less of it?
Was it a challenge to their hypothesis in that they were so very sure that the globe was warming that they could just take a ship into the a frozen hell hole and not get stuck "due to global warming", come back and say "we just sailed deep into the antarctic and didn't get stuck, see, that's global warming for ya"?
And the daily reports of this unimaginable folly is reported un-ironically to a point of media negligence. The New York Daily News just calls them "researchers" (read here) and makes no mention of climate research. CNN just quotes one of the passengers as a "climate change researcher" with no mention of the ships mission.
They went in search evidence of the world’s melting ice caps, but instead a team of climate scientists have been forced to abandon their mission … because the Antarctic ice is thicker than usual at this time of year.
Thicker than usual? In other words there should have been less ice like in the past, right? In the past when it was colder and the ice caps weren't melting like they are now supposedly.
...The scientists have been stuck aboard the stricken MV Akademik Schokalskiy since Christmas Day, with repeated sea rescue attempts being abandoned as icebreaking ships failed to reach them.
Now that effort has been ditched, with experts admitting the ice is just too thick. Instead the crew have built an icy helipad, with plans afoot to rescue the 74-strong team by helicopter.
I want to know who the "expert" are that "admitted" (under pressure?) that the ice is "too thick". Are they experts in ice? What's that called, iceologists? Are these the same experts who were going to find the melting "ice caps"? Did they actually think they would find anything that resembles anything that they can label "melting" in the antarctic?

The "research team" that got stuck were just like a lot of others that have jumped on the green wagon, there is Federal Money to be had for them to give there "Opinion" on what they "Think".
They sure didn't have a problem burning the fuel that put out pollutants that got them stuck did they
Nor did they have a problem with others having to risk life and limb while burning all that fuel that put out all those "as they would put it" Harmful Pollutants into our atmosphere either did they?
Maybe the next time these lying, mooching, stinking naturalist get their ass stuck like that everybody should help out mother earth and just let them take one for the team and not risk leaving any type of carbon footprint at all by trying to drag them out of the mess they got themselves into "all in the name of science".
I'm sure their would be a memorial put up in there name somewhere.

It isn't research when a whole cheering section chants "The science is settled" and persecutes anyone who disagrees with them.

True research would approach additional investigation with open arms, especially since they're so cocksure that they are correct. Conversely though, they try to silence any disagreeing opinion.

That, my friend, has nothing to do with "peer reviewed research." That smacks of cultism.

Review the research and get back to me on what's wrong with it Einstein. Leave out the nutty world wide conspiracy by the scientists studying climate.

Yep ... The -5 degrees we just experienced here is a lot warmer than the -20 to -30 degree range we used to see here years ago bout every winter.
That's a stretch...if you had -30 it was 1994 and then you would have been on Spruce Knob on the coldest night in your life.-20 very rare except for Jan1978

Pick up your towel, insert your babblefish, and tell me this: are those who question the "research" openly and perversely denigrated or not?

Since when do scientists say "The science is settled!"?

Maybe its a typo like you always claim when you make mistakes. Why do you feel the need to correct and pick at everybody when you make mistakes as well? Is it a liberal thing?

This is a useful resource. It lists 176 arguments against climate change, each with a short explanation which links to its own page of lengthy explanation with charts and graphs as needed, and comments by scientists, etc. discussing the fine points. I'll copy the first ten so you can see some of what it's like.
I would like nothing better than for climate change to not be happening, so that we could all go about our business, but it is, and we'd better be doing something about it.

Global Warming & Climate Change Myths

Here is a summary of global warming and climate change myths, sorted by recent popularity vs what science says. Click the response for a more detailed response. You can also view them sorted by taxonomy, by popularity, in a print-friendly version, with short URLs or with fixed numbers you can use for permanent references.
Climate Myth vs What the Science Says
1 "Climate's changed before" Climate reacts to whatever forces it to change at the time; humans are now the dominant forcing.
2 "It's the sun"

In the last 35 years of global warming, sun and climate have been going in opposite directions

3 "It's not bad" Negative impacts of global warming on agriculture, health & environment far outweigh any positives.
4 "There is no consensus" 97% of climate experts agree humans are causing global warming.
5 "It's cooling" The last decade 2000-2009 was the hottest on record.
6 "Models are unreliable" Models successfully reproduce temperatures since 1900 globally, by land, in the air and the ocean.
7 "Temp record is unreliable" The warming trend is the same in rural and urban areas, measured by thermometers and satellites.
8 "Animals and plants can adapt" Global warming will cause mass extinctions of species that cannot adapt on short time scales.
9 "It hasn't warmed since 1998" For global records, 2010 is the hottest year on record, tied with 2005.
10 "Antarctica is gaining ice" Satellites measure Antarctica losing land ice at an accelerating rate.

Hey, Zaph, wanna end "climate disruption?"

Forget about banning incandescent light bulbs.

Ban air conditioning and electric heating.

These two simple items consume more electricity than you can ever imagine, and man has survived for eons without them.

If you're serious about your belief in climate change, put your actions where your faith is and quit being a hypocrite. Do away with your own personal carbon emitting habits before you try to tell me what to do.

Total crap. Each and everyone of your claims have been debunked a thousand times.
