Seems as religious as the "Global-Warmers-Climate-Change" true believers.

Dogma based upon personal revelation.

Geez, another freezing night here in florida....dang. Weather men again. Said that La Nina would allow for a "mild" winter. Cmon, a low of 34 in Tampa???!! Mild???!

They screwed up on the 1010 hurricane prediction of 3 major storms hiting th US, and now again, on this La Nina mild winter.

had to scramble to cover up mu coffee trees , as because of the weatjher men predictions, I threw out my fall leaves figuring I wouldnt need them to create deep blankets for the trees. Today, scrambling, get home early from work to create insulation. scraped trace leaves around left unraked a month ago. Worked 3 X as hard. mangoes cant be covered ....too big. Lemons/oranges/olives/asparagus/anise/pineapples hardy enough.

If my coffee trees die its cuz of them. Meanwhile, GW still has a grip on some scientists.

As far as the new congress, we'll see. Theyre still politicians. Hopefully, theyll shake up the anti s and lift moratoriums on energy research/exploration. They should also go after the Wall street croooks, not GW related, but new congress isnt always a win win, thats my point. Not that the old congress would have done so either. Wall street runs Wash DC......

As long as the pot of beans we're carrying is a little fuller with the new congress.

That quote was from the bible, but you point out interesting parallels.

And boy oh boy, I froze my a** off all summer long here in the northeast. Course, that was "weather", not "climate", unlike the winter cold spells.

OK, so I suppose tonights freeze in Florida is not climate, but more "weather"?? Tommorrow is also "weather", and Wednesday is oh, more cold "weather". But not climate. Heehe..just sarcasm, guys. But, kinda relevant. So, when does "climate" have any relevance? When it is conveniently relevant for efforts like "Inconvenient Truth"?

You put a bunch of "weathers" together and you get climate. All arbitrary. Fuzzy logic.

Groan-- and it wasn't apologized ahead with a, or maybe two.

havnt researched it out yet, so forgive my guesswork.....but seems like the title of "Meteorologist" could have been "Asteroidologist", or "Cometologist", etc. These guys study weather, climate, meteors, stars, oceans, planets (to some extent), etc. I dont think one would get stuck on arbitrary names, based on tradition/etc.

Which one does a Cometologist study again? I'm getting worried about my bone density test scheduled for this afternoon.

In England December is clocking in as the coldest on daily data back to 1910.

A number of places have temperature sporadic records back to the late 1600s, which marked the end of the Little Ice Age.

Australia records snow at a ski area in the middle of their summer.

Some are wondering if this is the return of the Little Ice Age.

Don't think so.

One influence with immediate effect is solar output, which during the 1980s reached the highest in 1000 years (according to Zurich University). That and reduced volcanic activity explains most of the warming.

The recent solar minimum was the deepest since 1913.

The Little Ice Age, which Mann's "hockey" stick chart eliminated from history, is mainly attributed to an exceptional low in solar activity. This was called the "Maunder Minimum" and the latest minimum, which ended in August 2009, did not exceed the 1913 low.

At any rate, it does show that Mother Nature has a sense of humour when it comes to radical global warmers, or climate changers as they now style themselves.

Good observations, subtle. All I know is the weather men/climatologists/asteroidologists screwed up again. Mild winter is not proving to be the case. Second time I have to cover /burry my coffee trees this season, and its not even half over. Ive run out of seasoned wood already......resorting to burning freshly cut oak. Snow in Genoa Italy/europe overall, record cold in NA for December, etc. Wheres Al Gore?

The solar physicists who made the call on the remarkable decline in solar activity (back in 1995) consider that the trend could continue for some time.

This would be within the usual 11-year solar cycle.
