>>"Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming.

Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile -- the list goes on and on.

{this morning the national weather predicted 36-degrees in central FL -balth}

No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA's GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously.

The total amount of cooling ranges from 0.65C up to 0.75C -- a value large enough to wipe out most of the warming recorded over the past 100 years. All in one year's time. For all four sources, it's the single fastest temperature change ever recorded, either up or down."<<

How's it go... oh yea: What goes up, must come down.

Greenies are already claiming that this is due to global warming that we are seeing extreme weather conditions and that human activities are changing the pattern of the earth atmosphere.

The truth is given the age of the earth and its atmospheric condition, given human data capturing capability and given biased tendency of human nature, we may never know the reality.

We've had a very snowy winter (yay :D). It's 18 degrees right now...more snow expected for tomorrow.

I have to say, this has been one of the mildest winters for us... we've had almost no snow--a couple of inches to date. Tomorrow night another snow-to-rain mix thing happening... where we'll get an inch and it'll wash away. At least it's not doing what it used to do--snow, turn to rain, freeze, then snow again on top of it.

That's happened a few times here, it's a pain in the ass.

In talking w/ my mom and brother, it sounds like they've had a lot of the snow/rain/freeze/snow cycle in Eastern Ohio this winter...sounds like it's been a rough one there.

It was a great day here in the Denver today--60 and sunny.

Someone told me it snowed in San Diego, CA within the last year, does anyone know if that is true?

It snowed up in Alpine--east of San Diego-- last month, closed I-8, IIRC..

Pretty heavy winter here in Eastern ND though. We've had at least a foot of snow on the ground at all times since middle of December. Quite a few -30 degree nights and a couple of weeks where it hardly got above zero...we are starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel though. I was up in north eastern ND this weekend and they have even more. Over 2 feet easily and they got more today. Even all the fields are covered completely which rarely happens.

Some people just don't get it.

Weather patterns are designed to fluctuate and balance over time. The fact that weather had this drastic of a correction in a one year period is alarming. I agree that global warming is made out to be much more imminent than it probably is, but the bottom line is that since the industrial revolution, the trendlines for climate has been completely insane.

We're getting more snow tonight ... about 2 more inches are expected. It's been quite a see-saw winter, with lots of snow, then warmer temps to melt, then more snow.

But, it has also been bitterly cold, too, with subzero temps just about a few days after each snow.

I took some pics of the recent snows we've had and posted 'em here:

We're supposed to have temps in the 40s on Sunday ... followed by cooler temps the next week, but thankfully, mostly above freezing.

Is spring coming YET????

33 here in anderson sc. seems that each year since i've been around we see less and less snow til for a few years we didnt get any. mostly see the freezing rain and sleet. if we get snow its about 2". we had a "blizzard" here in '96 all of 6" in a 3 day period of time. as far as the warming thing goes they did a thing on the history channel or the discovery channel, cant remember which on the topic "Little ice age" it was very interesting stating that there is factual evidence of the planet both warming and cooling over short periods of time. citing one instance of warming that may have contributed to the black plague.

33 here in anderson sc.

That's about the high we are supposed to have tomorrow (Friday).

I don't feel like getting into this argument. i just want to point out one thing. We have roughly 100 years of reliable and at least somewhat accurate temperature records. Who is there to say that 12 month drastic changes in weather haven't occurred before? or perhaps used to be very common before. 100 years of climate data is useful, don't get me wrong, but theres still 20,000+ years of human history that are unrecorded as far as climates go (at least descriptively recorded).

It's 13 degrees out right now--and if I don't get my arse out in the next 5 minutes, I won't be there when the kids walk in :AH-HA_wink:

It just seems like a day you want to stay in bed all toasty and warm!
