The festive cold snap and Storm Dylan’s raging gales have brought a sharp dose of snowy winter misery to our shores. But if that seems bad enough, imagine our temperatures plummeting to such bone-aching lows that British rivers freeze for months at a time. Our streets would become impassable ice sheets, industry would grind to a halt, vital supplies would be stranded, hospitals overwhelmed and power supplies fail under the unprecedented demand. Similarly lethal chaos has occurred before, in the harshest period of a centuries-long European cold snap called the Little Ice Age. Between the 17th and early 19th centuries,
Comments: Having been following the weather forecasts for Goose Creek, SC (has better National Weather Service forecasts for our town), I can be easily talked into an Ice Age. This Lowcountry sunshine part of South Carolina has turned already. See:
SNOW, they say. Tuesday night through Wednesday night. A temperature of 17°F tonight. That is surely part of an imminent Ice Age for this warm, er, once warm place on the shore. NWS says "Expect wind chills to range from 4 to 9 degrees above zero." And that´s NOT Centigrade.
Ah do declayah we will soon be in mukluks and snowshoes.
If I was a scientist who had spent the last 15 years predicting global warning that never happened I might be anxious to find a new danger that would negate the BS that I had been spouting for all those years. Look for this to catch on and become the new reason for taxes and government programs and of course research grants.
Faulty computer models that predict increasing CO2 concentrations will cause significant global warming is once again shown to be wrong.
In order to reliably predict changes in global temperatures and identify the relative significance of various factors, the models must accurately include ALL phenomena and their interrelationships.
Current models are WAY too simple to be trusted, as shown by the failure of their predictions to come true.
The scientific method requires agreement between hypotheses (exemplified in models) and empirical observations to be trusted. The scientific method did not fail, its practice was hyped and distorted for political reasons.
Here we go again. No matter what, everyone PANIC! We dont know whats going to happen but it will be catastrophic! Oh, by the way, the government will need more of your money to address this. No, dont get up. We´ll just take it out of your paycheck.
Two things we know for sure in the fake news: 1) Whatever the weather, it’s Trump’s fault. A special prosecutor must be named. 2) Whatever the weather, only bigger government will solve it. Tax cuts will only make it worse.
Now, I´ve played poker, the stock market, slot machines and was even once in the horse trading business- Hell, I even went crazy once and got tangled up in the fake diamond business (amazed to say it was one of the few of my many get-rich-quick schemes that made me some money!)and I´ll be darned if this doesn´t sound just like a hedge bet by global warming alarmists. Any time a fella is selling you something and he invests in the opposite, get ready, ´cause you are about to get skinned.
Astronomy magazine mentioned this recently but hedged this information by saying it is yet to be known whether the impact of a reduction in the sun´s solar output could have any significant impact that could reverse some of man´s warming impact on Earth´s temperature. Astronomy magazine has obviously reversed solar vs. human global thermal impacts by many orders of magnitude and still thinks it is "scientific" - shame on them. Earth without a warm enough sun becomes a frozen snowball regardless of any quantity of "greenhouse gases" - it happened before and it could happen again.
There is no warming to "reverse", that was entirely a fiction.
But the sun going blank was a precursor to the Little Ice Age, known as the Maunder Minimum, meaning minimum number of sunspots.
So, we really may be in for continued cooling, the last few sunspot cycles (every 11 years there is a minimum) minimums have been lower than in the past, so we are following the pattern of the Maunder Minimum. Too early to tell how far the sun will take it, but you can be certain that we have no way to control it. We are passengers on this planet, regardless of what the morons and liars like Al Gore say.
Stop it with the phony global warming narrative. Just... stop it!
You snowflakes and Gorebites are just trying to save face in the face of... Fimbul Winter?
Damn cold, anyway. If global warming was real, NYC Time square would have been under water, and the great northwest passage in use year round. There is no man made global warming to reverse.
If there had been, we might actually be better off.
Instead AL Gore had to pop up, and pop off again... notice he always ends up speaking in a snow storm?
Maybe some old seer in Finland saw visions of Gore screaming, "Warm! Hot!" And saw it getting colder and colder: Thus Surtur, king of the Fire Jotuns leading final war resulting in Fimbul Winter and Ragnarok!
Maybe Jotun is how he heard the Dems mascot called? Jotun/Jackass? ...
#20, Canceled my subscription to Astronomy Magazine because I was offended by the tirates on Global Luke Warming aka Creeping Climate Change by the editor and one of their more pugnacious columnist. They are entitled to their opinion but resent being told if I don´t agree with them chapter and verse I am a knuckle dragging Neanderthal boob who fell off a turnip truck. I believe in Climate Change. Who doesn´t? The Climate has been changing since the beginning of the Earth. What I am dubious about is Imminent Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming. Even the doctored data doesn´t agree with their computer simulations. We are told if we don´t buy what they are selling that we are anti science. The scientific method says when the model doesn´t agree with the data you discard the model. All the Warmies want to do is sneer at you and try to intimidate the heretics.
It´s called weather people....this phase of the weather in the Northern Hemisphere is called winter. It gets cold and snows in the winter. The prevailing winds turn to the North where (despite Al Gore) it is cold. If this pattern extends to tens or hundreds of years, it can be referred to as a climate change.
I think the Brits are on to something. I´ve noticed a reoccurring pattern the last couple of years. It seems like the year starts out really cold and then it´s very green and balmy for months at a time, but then around the 10th month it starts getting really cold all over again.
THE FBI and emergency services have rushed to the scene of a ‘suspicious package’ after it was discovered in a US Federal Courthouse in Wisconsin’s capital Milwaukee, it has been reported. Officials have confirmed the incident in Milwaukee where federal officers are investigating. Emergency services have also arrived at the scene with several fire service vehicles having been pictured outside.

AN in-depth study into the impact of Brexit has revealed that even the most basic trade deal with the EU would see the £35billion divorce bill look "like a bargain". The UK struck a "bargain" when they agreed to the £35billion divorce bill with the EU - as the economic boom after Brexit will see "the bill pay for itself". According to top-level Bloomberg economists, even the most basic free trade deal with the EU would bring in over £40billion in just three years. Brexit Secretary David Davis has been pursuing a "Canada-plus-plus-plus" deal, which would see Britain replicate the Canada-style

Comedian, and director of ´Get Out,´ Jordan Peele calls President Trump a racist in an upcoming interview airing Sunday. Peele, who is opening up to CBS´s Sunday Morning, says ´You know, the truth is the president is a racist, which is very sad,´ adding ´I´m disheartened by policies that are xenophobic and sexist … there are many strides backwards every day.´ The director who calls his film ´Get Out,´ a ´social thriller,´ which is getting Oscar buzz for it´s handling of race relations across America, also discussed the differences he says he sees when compared with former President Obama´s handling of race.
A MASSIVE tanker carrying 10,000 gallons of fuel has exploded in a ball of fire as smoke billows into the night sky in the city of Midvale, Utah, that has forced roads to close, it has emerged. Photos show the huge vehicle engulfed in flames at the moment of the explosion - smoke could be seen by nearby travellers as the bright furnace left its mark on the Interstate 15 highway. Interstate 15 has seen closures north and southbound - it is currently unknown if there are any injured by the devastating flames. More to follow…
ANOTHER nail in the coffin of Project Fear. It is becoming increasingly clear that the constituent countries of the EU as well as the bloc itself are exceedingly keen to strike a trade deal: the Prime Minister will today hail the most wide-ranging agreement in Anglo-French history. And significantly, while it does not specifically cover Brexit, it does mention a comprehensive agenda, covering everything from space exploration to the Bayeux Tapestry. This is proof, if it were needed, that Brexit is no bar to continuing good relations with our EU counterparts, to say nothing of the fact that we have a
A Republican senator disputed on Thursday that Donald Trump is a racist, following reports about the president describing majority-black countries as ´s***holes´ amid tense immigration negotiations. Trump is ´absolutely not´ driven by racial animus, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on CNN, after flatly asking an interviewer to pose the question. And as the West Wing decided this week how flexible to be on immigration issues, he claimed, he got bad advice from the people around him. The ´s***hole´ snipe, which Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin claimed was directed at Haiti and African nations, shouldn´t be taken as evidence of racial prejudice, Graham explained. ´You
ISIS has released a new propaganda video depicting a full-scale invasion of Washington DC. The five-minute movie, released on social media by pro-ISIS group Abd al Faqir Media, shows an army of terrorists surging through the city streets while ISIS jets race through the skies above. It starts with an edited scene taken from Hollywood blockbuster London Has Fallen showing a jihadi blowing up a bridge while crossing in a van packed with explosives as cars fall into the river below. The video then takes the viewer through the stages of invasion, showing the Mujahideen arriving on the outskirts of the city
A fresh inquest into the death of Stuart Lubbock, found dead at the home of entertainer Michael Barrymore in 2001, has been blocked by the Attorney General. Mr Lubbock´s father submitted the request to Jeremy Wright under the Coroners Act 1988 requesting a new inquest into the death of on the grounds of new evidence. But today Wright blocked the application citing a lack of sufficient admissible evidence. The Attorney General´s Office said in a statement: ´After careful consideration, the Attorney General Jeremy Wright QC MP has decided not to provide his authority for an application to be made to the High Court
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly acknowledged Wednesday that President Donald Trump has ´changed´ his position on major campaign pledges like the border wall that was supposed to stretch from sea to shining sea. At a meeting on Wednesday with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Capitol Hill Kelly reportedly said that some of Trump´s views were ´uninformed´ and and admitted that Mexico will not pay for a border structure. ´As we talked about things, where this president is and how much he wants to deal with this DACA issue and take it away,´ Kelly told Fox News later, ´I told them
AN explosion has rocked a police station in Malmo, Sweden forcing officers to lock down the area after a suspected hand grenade detonated. The explosion was caused by a hand grenade according to local news reports. The police have released a statement to say they were called by several people due to a loud bang. Police spokeswoman Anna Goransson said to the Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet: “The place is locked off and the bombing group is on its way. "Fortunately, no people have been injured, but cars, I cannot say how many, have been damaged." The Aftonbladet have claimed that two people are suspected
President Trump spends a chunk of each day on the phone, whether it´s a White House landline or ´Trump One´ or ´Trump Two,´ the nicknames his aides have given to his two cell phones. CNN divulged more details about Trump´s habits during so-called ´executive time,´ a term used on the president´s schedule to indicate he´s doing work, but often from the Yellow Oval room, located in the residence. Axios first reported that ´executive time´ was taking up more and more of Trump´s ´shrinking´ schedule, suggesting it was time spent on Twitter and watching TV, and not in the Oval Office being productive.
A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive
The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,
After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in
1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are
The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C. (Photo) Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino warned the release of the FISA report will destroy the image of his former boss Barack Obama.“Take it to
California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.
Former FBI director James B. Comey is joining the faculty of his alma mater, the College of William & Mary, and plans to teach a course on ethical leadership at the school’s Washington center starting in the fall. Comey, whom President Trump fired last year, will have a nontenured position as an executive professor in education, the school announced Friday. His course will be offered through the W&M Washington Center to students of the public college based in Williamsburg, Va. Comey will teach the course in fall 2018, spring 2019 and summer 2019 with executive assistant professor Drew Stelljes.
During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as
Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,
More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to
Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
For the second time in less than a year, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested in Florida, and this time, cops say, he threatened to sexually assault the arresting officer´s wife. Anderson, 24, who was arrested at around 2:15am for going 105 miles-per-hour in a 45 zone, was placed in the back of the police vehicle and ´stated that when he got out he was going to find (the officer´s) wife, f--k her and n-t in her eye,´ according to the the police report with the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. According to the Daily News, the police
