Global Warming To Bring Colder/Warmer Winters

Feb 8, 2013 Full story: NorCalBlogs 6

It seems that every time we get some snow, another "scientist" is wheeled out to explain that, no matter how cold it gets, it is all down to global warming.

Guess what? The nonsense is from the 'thony's trash.

Keep your peace by not reading it.

This is the type of things I read JPL

Source: NewScientist; January 19, 2013 The Rise in extreme weather is a sign of things to come.

US: The New Dust Bowl
The US is experiencing one of its worst droughts in a century. About 60% of the country is affected. In 2012, a quarter of the corn crop was lost.
2012 was also the hottest year on record in the US. The US provides about half of the world's corn and much of its grain. Per the US Department of Agriculture, the 2012 grain loss means global food prices will rise by 3-4% in 2013, even if the drought abates.
That is not predicted to happen...

Asia: Record low and Storms of Snows
Much of Asia has been freezing since the end of November....
Normally, winters in the northern hemisphere are dominated by westerly winds, driven by the temperature gradient between the warm equator and the cold North Pole. But as the Arctic sea ice retreats, the polar ocean warms faster and the westerlies are weakened. This allows cold air to spill out of the Arctic and into Eurasia.

[note the same mechanism is what is causing the current cold spell here in the US]

Brazil: Drought threatens power

The northeast of Brazil is going though its worst drought in decades. Brazil depends on hydroelectricity to meet 29% of its energy needs; and ethanol biofuels accounts for about 11%. This makes Brazil's energy supply sensitive to climate change.... Biofuel is most vulnerable as river flows are predicted to shrink .
