Global Warming Fries New York
The summer of 2014 has been one of the mildest on the books — and could be the first summer in a decade without a heatwave.
“It wasn’t clear if it was going to be a hot or a cool summer,” said National Weather Service meteorologist David Stark.“We started out the year very cool and it seems like we just continued that. It doesn’t look like we have any heat waves in the near future.”
Instead of searching for the skimpiest outfits to battle the sizzling sun, New Yorkers are reaching for their sweatshirts.
“It’s been so much colder this summer,” said Susan Vartholomatos, 51, who broke out her bikini for a beach day Friday afternoon.“In the morning, when I go out to my terrace, I need a sweatshirt.”
Vartholomatos said she wishes it was hotter, adding “I’d take heat and humidity over snow any day.”
Only four days have hit 90 degrees this summer, three in July and one in August, with the hottest temperature on the books clocking in at 91.
The last time the city went without a heat wave – classified as three consecutive days of temperatures higher than 90 degrees – was in 2004.
The cooler temps aren’t just affecting people looking to get a good tan. Beach businesses at Coney Island say they’ve taken a hit this season.
“This is the coldest I’ve experienced in a while,” said Ahmad Hussian, whose father owns a store called Sun & Fun on Surf Avenue.“Not a lot of people are coming here at all, but I have sold a lot of hoodies.”
Monica Ghee, who has been working a game called Coney Island High Striker for 45 summers, said the boardwalk clears out at night.
“It’s been a strange season,” she said.“There’s been no real summer so far.”
While a late summer heat wave is possible, forecasters at the National Weather Service say there’s a slim chance one will slip in the next few weeks.
Typically, the city sees at least 15 days that top 90 degrees with at least one heat wave mixed in.
“We haven’t even had a day where it reaches 100 degrees,” complained Naquan Gathers, who runs a Ghost’s Hole at Coney Island.
pretty much what the climate models predicted...

didn't figure you for a global warming supporter but here you are touting what they predicted as true...

good on you, galt~!

Does it really matter, nuc? Would it matter if these soulless monsters were coming after progressive liberals or just the average run-of-the-mill moderate liberal?
Would you want the most powerful and humanitarian country to rescue you and your family? Or would you understand why they stood by and let them die a horrible death?
We've done that too many times in the past - in Rwanda, in Syria and now in Iraq.
If you asked a Nazi how they could watch children being sent to the gas chambers and they said they were just following orders or didn't want to make waves, does that exonerate their character or guilt?
We are just as guilty if we do nothing.
Please say you agree.
You obviously intimidate nuc, he said it himself.

Why does "Obama" need a plan to get these individuals off the mountain?

It has been reported that "Kurdish fighters from Turkey's PKK had helped an unspecified number of people off the mountain. It was not possible to confirm the involvement of the PKK, which would risk dragging Turkey into the conflict." As much as you would like to believe the United States is in this alone, you are sadly mistaken.

And you can believe that if you want too.
But freedom was the bottom line in breaking away from England and abolishing slavery. Basic human rights was the bottom line in protecting women's and children's rights. We once used to share the concept of both and preserving them above all else. No one ideology or party had ownership of either.
We are now being threatened with a kind of evil the world hasn't seen since Hitler's reign of terror. It is threatening all of mankind and the civilized world.
Time to put away the boxing gloves. We have much bigger issues confronting us than petty ideological arguments.
Ebola? ISIS? Could you be a bit more specific?

You people can NEVER get your facts right.
Yes, Obama kept his campaign promise by ending the war -- but he didn't have much of a choice. The troops weren't withdrawn because the U.S. wanted them out. They left because the Iraqi government refused to let them stay.
OCT 21 2011:
"The White House -- anxious about growing Iranian influence and Iraq's continuing political and security challenges -- publicly and privately tried to sell the Iraqis on a troop extension."
"Obama's speech at the White House was less a dramatic surprise than simple confirmation of what had long been expected by observers of the moribund talks between the administration and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, which believes its own security forces are more than up to the task of protecting the country from terror attacks originating within its borders or foreign incursions from neighboring countries."
http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2...
America put Maliki where he is today. A real leader would not have taken no for an answer.

Obama wanted permission. He wanted to tell his base he got us out of Iraq. Both are signs of weakness.

ISIS recognized it more than anyone and filled the vacuum while Obama was declaring he had terrorism on the run on the campaign trail.

Surely, even you must have doubts he has any idea what he's doing other than padding his own legacy which is slowly but surely eroding.

The discussion was Dave's claim that the general complained when Obama did nothing then complained when Obama did something. This is about dumber that sh*t Dave's lies, not Obama. Please, start using your supposedly higher education.

<quoted text>The Northern Iraq town of Sinjar is on the the main road, Route 47 and only about 30 miles from Syria. The population is fewer than 25,000. Mosul is much further to the East on Route 47 so it's puzzling that the talking heads were focusing on Mosul ten days ago and just began yakking about Sinjar a few days ago.
It appears that the US has made three two aid drops on the mountain where about 10,000 Yazidi's were stranded__not sure where those planes came from. There's also been at least one drone strike and at least three bombing missions by Super Hornets from the US carrier George H W Bush which is hundreds of miles to the South of Sinjar in the Pesian Gulf.
When the TV talking heads are interviewing each other__it's just bullcht and some of the ex military clowns are clueless. I heard one guy wondering why we weren't sending A-10 tank killers to Sinjar and Mosul.
Thanks Real, I'm always impressed with your all around knowledge on most subjects. I agree with your assessments on some of the so called military experts, sometime they make me ill.

What don't you understand about Iraq being a soverign nation? We don't just step in when we feel like it. There was a lot going on in June...Maliki tried and failed to get a parliamentary mandate to declare a state of emergency in Iraq and he rejected a proposal submitted by the Head of the Citizen Coalition to form a national security council in Iraq tasked with managing the crisis. When the PM finally finally asked Obama to launch air strikes, our military had to assess the situation o see if the Iraq government couldn't manage it themselves. As much as you would like Obama to be like Bush...shoot and ask questions later...it's not going to happen.
We don't just step in when we feel like it.

Since when? Even Obama has done it. I'll bet Benghazi had a lot to do with "stepping in when we feel like it. "

In a speech at Ft. Bragg, NC on December 14, 2011, Obama said the United States was “leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq, with a representative government that was elected by its people.”
“Iraq’s future will be in the hands of its people. America’s war in Iraq will be over” he remarked. And “Iraq is not a perfect place. It has many challenges ahead. But we’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq, with a representative government that was elected by its people. We’re building a new partnership between our nations.”
[Two days ago] CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer reported that Iraq is “falling apart.” The White House is currently debating dropping in aid or engaging in airstrikes against Iraq while stating “there could be a humanitarian catastrophe” inside Iraq.
Keep blaming Bush, useful idiot. People outside of your progressive fantasy land are laughing at you.
He also said AQ was on the run, we could keep our doctors, and we could keep our insurance. He's a liar, let's just accept that fact.
