Nice one from Brainless Brian, too.

In response to a comment about Denier propaganda concerning grant money, it replied thusly:

"Yes indeed, skeptics point out the political ramifications of climate change mitigation are two sides of the same coin. OPEC wants to make fossil fuel use expensive, so do the environmentalists."

Sheer gibberish. Par for the course for Brainless, of course. The troll pretends to think that C02 increases are good for us. What can you say?

An early September winter storm in the Black Hills has dumped up to 8 inches of snow in the area, while Rapid City received its earliest snowfall in more than 120 years.

A winter storm warning is in effect until noon Mountain time Thursday for the northern and central Black Hills including the cities of Lead, Deadwood, Hill City and Mount Rushmore.

Just a few things about LessFactMoreHype:

*LessFact avoids, evades and ignores anything that proves him wrong, he simply moves on to another subject, looking for ways to attack someone else's point and do his best to insult them.

Plenty of evidence of an increase is the most severe storms. As to the number of storms..

http://www.gfdl.noaa.gov/21st-century-project...
"Earlier papers in this series (Knutson et al 2008; Zhao et al 2009) have suggested that the overall frequency of Atlantic hurricanes will not increase dramatically as the climate warms, and that, in fact, a decrease is more likely than an increase. In particular, these papers argue that the strong positive trend over the past 30 years in the overall frequency of Atlantic hurricanes should not simply be extrapolated into the future."

So fewer storms overall but an average of more very strong hurricanes. Got it yet???

No one year counts that much. It is the trend you have to look at.

No, because there is no mention of "an average of more very strong hurricanes" in that article.

Why don't you look at "the trend" and see what's really happening, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty?

Well , you don't want to make fossil fuel use cheaper and more accessible. Face facts, you side with the fossil fuel suppliers who benefit from increasing the price of energy and fuel.

It is good that "lippy ass" reports effects of AGW, which is causing increased times & greater amounts of Arctic cold to move to the south.
Meanwhile other areas warm, such as Fairbanks, Alaska at 20degC(68degF).

Yes. Warmer AIR temperatures in SUMMER melted surface ice in the periphery causing hydraulic fracturing to break up the Larsen B ice shelf. That is one fact.

There is also the issue of warmer water undercutting the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, leading to greater flows and negative mass balance.

Then there are the stronger katabatic winds and more frequent snow (from higher precipitation) in the shore regions that are also less salty (easier to freeze) leading to a lower volume of winter sea ice but a greater area (about 1% or so depending whether later corrections (two thirds may be spurious) are correct.

And you are still clueless. Your tactic of posting some random reference and then making a stupid and unrelated claim is infantile at best.

Technically it would be mostly weather (primary causation from proximate conditions),local climate (you don't get snow in the Sahara no matter what), and AGW driven climate change (weakening of the jet stream causing more arctic air to flow south to meet with northward flowing gulf humidity).

Now, that you k now, are you going to try to post something rational?

If the long term weather odds changes, it would be 'climate change'. You need to find the mechanism and validate that before you can trace it definitively to global warming, though common sense would argue that a major change in global average surface temperature (a major factor in driving climate processes) is VERY likely to be partly involved.

perhaps you can explain to me why the 'arguments' from the denialists tend to look like the whining of small children, without facts or clear reasoning.
