MSM Makes A Shocking Discovery : “we’ve had weather for a long time”

Tornadoes and Global Warming
MAY 3 2011, 2:41 PM ET270
Were the tragic deaths in Alabama linked to climate change?  CoyoteBlog makes a pretty convincing case that no, they aren’t–and that in fact, tornadoes, which are caused by masses of cold air running into warm air, are probably among the last things we’d expect to increase as the globe warms:

    There’s no telling….
    They tried to tell us that it was warm air this past winter, that put more moisture in the air, that caused all the cold and snow.

    Now, by some miracle, all that global warming warm air turned into cold air that caused all the tornadoes…………

    I think even they realized how lame they were sounding and finally shut up…

    Weather is not climate unless it causes alarm. In which case it’s global warming.

    Here is a quick hit on the tornado / global warming gambit. Expect more tornadoes in a cooling world.

    Climate change Weather endangering cute rodents

    Heavy snowpack, late spring could take toll on marmots
    By Sandra McCulloch, Times Colonist May 6, 2011

    Hundreds of Vancouver Island marmots are awakening from their winter hibernation to find their burrows – and the grass that is their sustenance – covered by deep snow.
    “There is a tremendous amount of snow,” said Viki Jackson, executive director of the Marmot Recovery Foundation.
    A helicopter flew over Haley Lake Ecological Reserve, one of 27 mountain colonies, to check on conditions and saw only one or two marmots had emerged from hibernation.
    “I have a picture of a little marmot poking his head out in this massive snowfield and I can imagine what he’s thinking,” said Jackson.
    She’s fearful that two difficult winters will take a toll on the 300 marmots living in the wild. The 85 that were raised in captivity and released last summer are especially vulnerable, Jackson said.
    “We are concerned about the amount of snow,” she said.
    How well the rodents fare will depend on whether the weather warms up over the next few weeks, Jackson said.
    “It’s horrible to see two years like this is in a row.”
    The marmots at Mount Washington will have food dropped for them, but it’s difficult to feed the animals elsewhere because of the steep terrain, Jackson said. smcculloch@timescolonist.com

    Sorry for screwing up the comments portion of your blog, Steve, In my defense, my wife was calling me for dinner and I obviously can’t use a keyboard when I’m in a hurry.

    “How well the rodents fare will depend on whether the weather warms up over the next few weeks, Jackson said”

    Rodents???! OMG, Jackson hasn’t seen the Editorial in the latest (peer-reviewed, natch) Journal on the enviro-advocacy block:

    The power of misdescription: ‘animals’ now a term of abuse

    Sorry folks, pretty soon it will be enviro-politically incorrect to speak of “rodents” and “vermin” … not to mention many other “differentiated beings of startling variety and complexity”

    Oh, well … I’m sure that Elizabeth May (newly elected Green Party MP for Saanich and Gulf Islands) will introduce a bill in Parliament that will address this must-be-due-to-global-warming-extra-snow that is causing the marmots such grief 😉
