As if we needed another example that weather patterns are climate change is subject to, shocker, nature, we have this report:
Iceland’s Laki volcano erupted in 1783, freeing gases that turned into smog. The smog floated across the Jet Stream, changing weather patterns.
The winter of 1784 was also one of the longest and coldest on record in North America. New England reported a record stretch of below-zero temperatures and New Jersey reported record snow accumulation. The Mississippi River also reportedly froze in New Orleans.
This time, it’s me I am accusing. Not Obama.
I have been reading the reports of the unemployment situation today and two things have stood out. The first, from the BLS:
The unemployment rate edged down to 10.0 percent in November, and nonfarm payroll employment was essentially unchanged (-11,000)
And the second from MarketWatch:
The report was much better than expected by economists surveyed by MarketWatch, who were looking for 100,000 fewer jobs…
Okay, let’s start with #2 first. I have seen several reports that show November was expected to lose 100,000 to 130,000 jobs. And we came in losing only 11,000. No one, not ONE single person O have seen has stopped and said, “Huh”? This is off by just a little bit folks. These guys were off by a FACTOR OF TEN! No one is THAT wrong and gets away with it. Unless of course, you are Al Gore.
So, okay, experts were wrong. And by a lot. But that gets us to point #1. We still lost jobs.
In October, unemployment stood at 10.2%. We lost jobs. Even if it was only 1, we lost net jobs. The rate HAS to stay the same or get worse. Right? Wrong. We lost job AND the unemployment rate got better.
Unrelated news. Houston is expecting 2 inches of snow. Silly polar bears need migrate!
Do you remember the hurricane that made landfall onto North Carolina beaches this past July? Uh, no? Maybe August then? September-October-November? Yeah, me either. Wanna know why the mainstream media didn’t report any of those storms hammering the Carolina coast? Cause we had the quietest Hurricane season in 10 years.
SAVANNAH, Ga. — The Atlantic hurricane season ended Monday with barely a whimper: Not a single hurricane came ashore in the United States.
Since June, when the season began, just nine named storms developed. Only three of them became hurricanes, and those stayed out at sea or weakened before passing over land.
Two tropical storms made landfall in the U.S., causing little more than rain and some beach erosion.
It would seem that with a vanishing hockey stick, record cold and dampening of the powerful tropical storm season that we should finally be able to make some progress in combating the Climate Alarmists.
Prolly not, see, CO2 changes climate of which can appear all kinds of different symptoms. Including cooling and lessening of storms.
I know that this is a silly sample size, but still. At some point those folks that are screaming Global Warming should be forced to demonstrate that we really are warming.
High temperature averaged a chilly 47 degrees for the first two weeks of the month – 16 degrees below normal.
With 19 consecutive days of below normal temperatures and accumulating snow falling a few weeks before normal, news that this has been the coldest start to an October on record in the Twin Cities probably isn’t all that shocking.
Weather in Carolina is chill chill chilly:
Raleigh, N.C. — Temperatures could dip into the single digits overnight Friday, as bitter cold settles over the state for part of the weekend.
“The cold has finally arrived. And it’s going to stay cold. It’s going to stay below freezing,” WRAL Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.
Overnight’s temperature plunge could cause the coldest temperature on record since Jan. 29, 2000 – when there was a 20-inch snowfall.
This kinda is in line with the consistent cooling we have seen since, ummm, around 2000.
I know, Global Warming is all about trends, not day to day anomalies. But this sure doesn’t FEEL like Global Warming:
Sharp cold wave shocks upper Midwest, temps to –36
I am from this part of the world, lemme put into perspective how cold -37 is. Your fridge is 77 degrees warmer than it is outside for these folks!
