  1. The colder it gets, the more strident the cries of alarm from the Warmists become. I watched the initial NatGeo episode of “Hostile Planet” last night, and while the wildlife photography was superb, the whole thing sounded like an infomercial for the global warming agenda, time after time stating that this or that animal will soon become extinct because of habitat disappearing as global temperatures rise. No mention whatever of why deforestation and reduced rainfall on high mountains is occurring, due to humans cutting down the forests below, changing the local microclimate.

    Instead, everything was blamed on global warming, repetitively, despite the fact that all these endangered animals survived considerably warmer temperatures in the Minoan, Roman, Medieval and other warming periods in the last 11,000 years.

    They might not survive this time, due to human incursions into and destruction of their habitats, but it sure as hell won’t be due the current moderate warming.

  2. I have lived in Ga and SC all my life, (53yrs), and have not experienced any warming what-so-ever. In fact, if I remember correctly, it was warmer in the late 70s and early 80s than it is now. We used to watch the thermometer to see when it would reach 100f and with the humidity, it probably felt a lot hotter. In the past 3 years, we have had very mild summers and the humidity isnt as bad. We need the 100 degree days to kill off the pine beetle. Its really the only thing that keeps them in check. My grandfather and his father used to grow oranges in lower Georgia, around the time of the depression but, my GF said what he called the, “orange line”, moved further down south over time and the winter cold started staying around longer and later. What I dont like about the coming ice age that, we here in the south are seeing a LOT of northerners moving in. They are paying way jacked up prices for land, to get out of the north. Yall need to stay in yalls own lane!!!!

  3. so is my fire extinguisher at fault now for this???????

    Roll over the floor and laugh my ass off!

  4. UK farmers left in dismay as heavy snowfall hits during lambing season 03 Apr 2019
    Livestock farmers in the north of England and Scotland have voiced their dismay at having to lamb through inches of snowfall.
    Many parts of the UK woke up this morning (April 3) to snow, rain, hail and thunder, with the Met Office suggesting sleet and snow would continue through the afternoon in the north and west of the UK. The weather service said the highest snow depths recorded today were 12cm in Warcop Range and 7cm in Spadeadam, both in Cumbria, and 5cm in Aviemore, in the Scottish Highlands.

  5. Ireland, Wednesday 3 April 2019 Weather warning in place as winter returns with hail and snow
    April will bring “treacherous hail” and snow for parts of the country, with Met Éireann issuing its latest weather warning.
    With temperatures plummeting to lows of -1C, the forecaster has advised people to brace themselves for a return of frost and snow from today.
    A Status Yellow snow-ice warning has been issued for Connacht, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Longford and Louth until noon.
    However, if conditions do not improve by this afternoon the warning will be extended.
    Met Éireann said the dramatic dip in temperatures was due to a polar air mass moving over Ireland from the north. This will heavily influence our weather for the coming days.
    Forecaster Pat Clarke said: “While snow is forecast in northern parts of the country, the hail may pose as a bigger threat because once it hits the roads it will turn to ice. There’s a chance the snow will fall on lower grounds in these parts, but it will mainly occur on mountains and hills.”
