This is definately what they would call a "three dog night/day". I just went out to get the paper and I think I saw my dog who usually joins me (trying to train him to fetch it", flip me off as he sat behing the storm door locking at me through the glass. The TV proclaims -31 wind chill but my "hutzbahs" are guessing -frigging 50.:~ohyah!:

Hey folks to the east of us. were sending some BRUTAL weather your way.

Yeah, we're expecting snow off and on over the next few days, but at least the highs will be in the positive digits, even up in the 20's. I was in Gunnison yesterday and even the 'Colorado Arctic' is warmer than Denver. Bunker in city folk, looks like the worst is yet to come tonight if the forecasts I'm seeing are right.

They said it was a larger snowfall here in Chicago back in 1999 but I can't remember staying home that day, I remember shovelling and then going in to work and no one else went in. This time they told everyone to stay home.

Which has happened on earth for the 4 billion years the planet has had an atomosphere. This weather is not "crazy"...its winter in the northern hemisphere. It gets cold. It snows.

If you wanna believe in global warming then it doesn't matter what the weather does, your gonna believe in global warming. The fact is, the science is inconclusive at best.

I'm all for cleaner forms of energy, less pollution is certainly appealing for everyone. But, there has to be a transition to new forms of energy that is financially viable for free market economies to absorb.

There's no reason to scare people into change. The only way to get the free market to get off of fossil fuels is to provide a better alternative financially. China sure as hell isn't gonna ween itself off fossil fuels, they are gonna continue to suck up the most product possible because it's still cheap. If the US had any kind of leadership, it would invite new industries to develop new alternative ideas and let the free market then dictate where the technology should ultimately go.

But noooooooo. Nope, that is too capitalistic and we all know how evil the free market is.

See, I think this is a bull**** argument.

The argument from the right has never, ever, EVER been about researching new forms of energy to find a financially soluble way to get where we need to go. No, the argument from the right is to constantly attack the very idea of global warming, deny that it exists, and attack politically those who want to change how we power our lives in this country.

If you really are for alternative sources of energy, then good on you. You're one of the few on that side of the political spectrum who is.

And I say ALL of this as someone who WORKS FOR AN OIL & GAS COMPANY. Unlike most, my company is among the industry leaders in research of alternative energy sources, trying to find solutions that will carry this nation through the next century.

They certainly aren't doing so because it won't make them money. They're capitalists, as I am, but they'd rather devote research time and money to working on a solution than play political shell games to deny the existence of this problem.

I find it funny. If I want to own a hummer whose business is it? Obviously I can afford it, afford the fuel and maintenance for it. Al Gore has made millions of dollars selling global warming hysteria, using rigged science and photos to create an emotional response to a potential problem. He is worthy of ridicule.

I dont believe I said anything in regards to cutting back. If its voluntary, go for it if it makes you feel any better. But I really have a hard time believing man made carbon emmissions alone are the reason for global climate fluctuations. A volcano could go off tomorrow and in a day throw enough sulphur and carbon into the air to dwarf what man could release into the atmosphere over a century.

Of course man-made emissions aren't the SOLE cause of the problem. They're only the part of the problem that we can control (unless you have some newfound contraption that can stop a volcano from erupting). Gore's made money on his work, which has been extensive, but if you don't like Al Gore you're not going to like what he has to say. There is science on both sides of the argument, but ultimately, who does it harm if we all ride our bikes to work one day a week in the summer? Is it REALLY that awful to think of voluntarily doing something that might help solve some problems in our climate?

And who needs a Hummer? Know who I see driving them most often? Soccer moms in cities. Getting 10 miles per gallon, hogging the road, often being completely irresponsible drivers because they can't see out of their giant metal box.

I'm not demanding that you stop doing what you're doing. I'm saying, think of what YOU can do to help with the solution, and then do it. Think of a small change YOU can make in your every day life, and then make the change. I promise it won't affect you as much as you think, and you'll have all this extra energy from not leading a witch hunt against a political figure simply because he's on a different side of an argument from you.

Seems pretty simple.

Or you can snidely remark "global warming" to try and be clever when someone brings up extreme cold weather. One has the power to change something. The other does not.

The chasm between 'suggestion' and 'coercion' is the problem, man. You wanna hike to work, have a good time. But if others do not, leave 'em alone. You drop the science argument and say 'wouldn't it be good if...?'. Well, if the science isn't definitive, then maybe it would, maybe it wouldn't. You resort to the 'ask not what your country can do for you...' card, which is admirable but still allows for dissent and the right not to. The problem occurs when others beat you over the head with that argument, then point to science that we all know is suspect and then MANDATE you to accept THEIR answer to that question.

You wanna do what you consider to be 'your part'? Go crazy. You wanna feel better than others who choose not to? Go ahead. You wanna FORCE those others to live like you? Kiss off.

Except that the science is relatively definitive. Some of the models are terrible, particularly the ones that seem to get a lot of attention for their apocalyptic nature.

It takes a lot of pseudo-science and denial (not skepticism) to buy into the idea that global warming is some sort of fabrication. The earth is getting hotter and the anthropogenic contributions aren't really (scientifically) in doubt.

And before you flood me with thousands of links to thousands of 'scientific' sources. I know... and I get it... just because you can find things to quibble with in certain outlier studies doesn't meant that the bulk of the scientific literature should be discarded.

That it's become a political issue really sucks. I freely concede that the eventual impact of anthropogenic warming isn't fully understood. Extrapolating the data when so many variables are in play is really rather difficult and bound to be error prone. Yet it seems really damn risky to just continue on and simply ignore the problem.

The politics of the issue are the problem. It's not accident that nearly 100% of the 'conservative' posters on the mane fall on the 'denier' side of the issue, while nearly 100% of the 'liberal' posters on the mane fall on the other. It's absurd really. Credible scientists are waving their hands frantically in warning, and we're too busy vilifying the other side to see it. Sometimes you just have to put your political affiliation aside and deal with facts. It's a skill we've seem to have lost in this country.

I once took an anthropology course where the professor made a very substantive case that the rise of civilization was due to a sudden stabilization of climate after eons of ice ages and climate instability. The new stability allowed for the rise of agriculture and the migration of people all over the globe, not to mention an explosion of animal populations that were good eats. For 10,000 years, we've had this stable climate. We could put out almanacs and tell farmers what to expect, year after year. Perhaps that stability is coming to an end?

Every real scientist should hound those responsible for that out of the profession and shun them - so they are never to be heard from again. Then they should open up all the data to everyone, let it be verified, tested and retested. Right now the proponents of AGW have a huge credibility problem of their own making and calling people who want the real data 'deniers' isn't going to help that one bit.

No, that's not the key question. The key question is "are man-made sources contributing to an increase in climate temperature?" Whether that is happening in conjunction with a natural heating cycle isn't really the question to be asking.

The Earth heats up and it cools down. This is pretty well accepted by everyone. The question is, is this current cycle part of the natural cycle or is it due in part to carbon pollution?

The global warming contingent claim this is all due to man

That's absolutely false. Most of the research freely controls for the possibility of natural heating. You can find references to it throughout the literature. The idea here seems to be that the scientists are simply taking some data, throwing a regression on top of it, and going "hey guys.. we're all going to die!!!". In this case "An Inconvenient Truth" is very much part of that problem, as in its zeal to scare the hell out of everyone it reduced the science to more or less that.

In reality, scientists have controlled for natural heating through heavy analysis of previous warming/cooling cycles. Given that we didn't have thermometers (or people to use them) a million years ago the temperature ranges are difficult to pin down... but we have been able to confirm that this heating cycle is at the very least much more accelerated and pronounced than previous ones.

Taken in conjunction with more primary studies on greenhouse gasses (terrible name, but I'll go with it) we can paint a picture with reasonable certainty of what's happening. Again, projecting the actual outcome is extraordinarily difficult and most credible scientists don't claim to know exactly what the end result. It runs the gamut from "It'll suck to be in Texas in august" to "the end of life as we know it".

It really seems to me that folks are really struggling with the scientific process here more than anything else. Scientists tend to talk in degrees of certainty (it's pretty likely that.... or it's in the realm of possiblity that...). A lot of people, particularly when they don't like the ramifications of something, see it as hedging and uncertainty. It's not, it's just that science is generally not completely sure about almost *anything*. Instead we look at the data available and draw conclusions to the best of our abilities based on it. Then we test it and the cycle repeats.

That is the state of anthropogenic warming science today. Most scientists would say that they are 'reasonably certain' of the cause and 'rather uncertain' of the effect. As that translates to policy we have to ask our selves 'is it worth the risk?'

For me, it's really not. I support tougher emission standards and massive investment in alternative energy research. I'm not suggesting that we all ditch our cars and walk everywhere (although I do think society needs to take a long hard look at how we're developing cities). I'm not suggesting that we all live off the grid in huts. I'm just suggesting that we take climate science very seriously, because it is truly serious stuff.

Just like they are saying that in Calif once every 150 yrs we have a super storm where it could rain for a month straight. It happened before and sacremento so flooded they had to use boats to get around.

Earth warms and cools in cycles that man probably contributes some to but not the majority of it. The sun more then likely is not fully understood in how it changes our weather.

Considering that the Earth has gone in climactic cycles since the dawn of time, who gives a ****. Its going to get colder (because of Global Warming ironically) and it really doesn't effing matter what the cause is. ITS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Does it matter if its because of solar changes, green house emissions, volcano's erupting or the incessant gas coming out from the liberal left? Naw, it really doesnt. THe only thing that matters is that the earth is going to warm up at some point, melt enough ice that shuts off the global underwater "conveyor" which drives the Oceanic currents and then we are going to fall into an ice age.

Shocking. Thousands of years of data from ice cores has proven this exact thing has occurred dozens of times, and people are pointing fingers at who to blame.

STFU, it doesn't matter. Its going to happen and only the hubris of man thinks they can change it.

Nearly. You get your numbers and colors down, you'll be a real threat.

You see the beauty in saying that all extreme weather is global warming right? :yayaya:

If thats not a no lose situation for gore I don't know what is. What happened to Gore by the way? that dude dropped off the face of the Earth or is he hunting Man Bear Pig. The pretty much hit global warming on the head with that episode.

Exactly. We are better off building storm proof structures, snow removal equipment, water management, etc etc. The Earth is too big and complex for us to control it, we are along for the ride hurling through space and unimaginable speeds. But yeah we are going to control the weather?

According to the light rail a witness saw him slash the tires of a plow truck (so much carbon caused the snow and bitter cold, you see) and had his hands in his pockets to conceal the knife.

I also heard that the dude considered using a gun but those are SO violent.

I once took an anthropology course where the professor made a very substantive case that the rise of civilization was due to a sudden stabilization of climate after eons of ice ages and climate instability. The new stability allowed for the rise of agriculture and the migration of people all over the globe, not to mention an explosion of animal populations that were good eats. For 10,000 years, we've had this stable climate. We could put out almanacs and tell farmers what to expect, year after year. Perhaps that stability is coming to an end?

Considering that thousands of years ago there was a huge MF'ing glaicer that ended up carving out the Great Lakes near where I live right now I wouldn't be surprised if it crept back down again in a few thousand (hundred thousand)years.

People/scientists forget that they are basing their findings off a planet that is spinning in a goofy orbit around a star with debris raining down on it and travelling in a galaxy moving extremely fast and that the plates that create the continents are in flux and any data older than the last 100 years is sketchy at best.

If our orbit changes slightly it would have devastating impacts on our environment very quickly.

Do we need to curb the burning of fosil fuels which are finite and find renewable resources that have little impact on the environment? YES

Do we need Al Gore to blame it on SUV's and power consumption? NO

The question should be why is the US not building more Nuclear power plants and less coal/natural gas plants and not finding a way to make Fuel Cells cheaper to use for home and auto applications.

I am more worried about how natural resources are being squandered and species are being wiped out because they taste good. That is the biggest impact us Earthlings have had on the environement around us. It is one reason I believe we should be finding ways to explore and harvest resources from other places in our solar system. Just think if there are blue fin tuna like creatures on Europa that would make better sushi for the Japs or fish sticks for us honkey's without having to kill off or damage our eco-system? Hard part is making it cheap but that might be something worth at least exploring before we empty our sea's?

If there is that much snow in SK, I'm wondering how much snow is falling in NK. I feel bad for the NK people, they are gonna suffer way more than the people in the South simply because their country is not set up to deal with stuff like this. I wonder what the death toll is gonna be in the North...
