  1. If you guys had just deactivated your coal fired power plants and nukes earlier this all could have been avoided.

    • I don’t see how Man could have avoided a cyclic down turn of our Star’s energy output. CO2 has nothing to do with periodic warming which lasts around 140 years nor periodic cooling lasting around 38 years, “it’s the Sun stupid”. Its been happening for many millions of years, including the 100,000 year recent ice advance which hasn’t finished yet its just in an interglacial period of around 10,000 years. It will be back soon to a main street near you. It’s just your bad luck to be on the planet at the time when one of the previous 6 major warm periods comes to an end. It’s the same bad luck that you have bought Gullible Warming hook line and sinker; enjoy paying more CO2 taxes to your fraudulent government.

  2. We live in Virginia near the Blue Ridge Parkway just miles from NC. Our thermometer read -17°F early on the morning of the 20th. Living on the edge of a ridge with an extra kick to the winds, the wind chills were ridiculously low – we estimate -35°. Brrrr

    • Yikes! Sounds like you’ve got hit a lot worse than I did (in rural Isle of Wight County, just north of Smithfield)… although if I remember the lowest temp we got recently was 0 degrees F, and the day I checked with comparing NH we were colder than they were. Lowest recent with windchill was -13F.

      How much snow did you get this last storm? We got 5-6″ and despite being high of 51F yesterday, we didn’t get much melting going on… since they didn’t plow roads out here until Saturday. Lots of standing water on the road, plus partially melted ice/slush mix yesterday about 3PM, so with falling temps last night I figured we’d have another freeze up. Now we are supposedly going to get a “light” rain then sleet/snow mix.

  3. And record warmth and drought across the west that the media refuses to even acknowledge!

    The Galactic Federation of Light is coming to you’re door to arrest you for spreading lies and encouraging others to lie also!

    Time to shut the ice age lying machine down! I am sure that’s why you are not having very many comments since you are choosing to be an asshole and ban comments who dare say anything contrary to the Super Koch Bros!

    Hey that would make a funny Mario Hack!

    Dumb fuck!

    • Your climate is driven by heat moving from the warm Tropics to the cold Poles. The primary interface between the two extremes is the Polar front, other wise known as a Jet stream. If it gets stuck for months in the US winter, as it has for the last few years. You have snow wet cold on one side and a slack area with dry cool on the other, SC and a fair proportion of the western US is stuck in that slack area. At the end of the day the truth will out, but you won’t be around to admit it

    • According to several RECENT papers in Quaternary Science Journals the earth is not only due for an ice age NOW, glaciation happens much faster than originally thought. That is within two decades or so.

      Actually the glacial inception is over due by about two hundred years for one of two reasons:

      1. Solar Grand Maximum. If that is the reason we are now S.O.L.

      2. Man’s modification of the environment, aka the Ruddiman Hypothesis. If correct the LAST thing mankind should do is quit producing CO2 for the next 65,000 years. This is the Milankovitch cycle low solar insolation period corresponding to the Wisconsin Ice Age.

  4. Record lows set over the past few days in Ontario and Saskatchewan.

    As has been the case quite often this winter, yet another Arctic air mass has arrived, resulting in quite a few new record low minimum temperatures across Southern Ontario for today. Stiff northwesterly winds combined with these frigid temperature have also resulted in yet another round of extreme cold warnings for Southern Ontario.

    It is also interesting to note that many locations such as Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo, Kingston, Peterborough and Barrie have remained
    below freezing since late January. Latest indications continue to forecast temperatures remaining below zero for the rest of this month. This will set the stage for the first time an entire calendar month has been below freezing in the Kitchener and Toronto Pearson Airport areas since February 1978.
