Shock News : Florida Cold Is Possible Without Heat

Earlier this year, our leading scientific minds explained to us that the record cold in Florida in December was due the fact that 2010 was the hottest year ever. That explanation seems perfectly reasonable (assuming you are on crack.)

However, I have uncovered evidence that record cold in Florida occurred without record heat. At one time, cold was actually caused by cold.

Disclaimer : As the globe heats up past the next tipping point, we know that it is going to become “inhabitably” cold in Florida. I expect to see millions of climate refugees fleeing Florida and moving to Winnipeg.

    Winnipeg welcomes sunbirds from Florida to bask in the winter warmth in the great white north.

    You know….
    We’re not as tropical as most people think.
    We get at least 2-3 freezes every year, in extreme south Florida.

    Geoff, wrote a very good history of Florida freezes here:

  3. Andy Weiss says:

    1958 was warmcold before its time. It was also very mild in eastern Canada in 1958.

    The climate scientists back then were not sophisticated like the ones today. When the jet stream got “disrupted”, they were not smart enough to know it was the end of the world.

    Amazing smarts that CO2 stuff. It sets up shop in certain locations at certain times of the year and causes record coldwarm in some and warmcold in others.
    Can I get a mulit-billion dollar grant to study how CO2 can affect those poor children in Florida and ignore those poor kids in Winnipeg?

    I read the Florida citrus freeze article and just wanted to add a few to the list of devastating freezes. On of the worst was in December 1962, when Tampa officially got down to 18 degrees. But that was a singularity and in a few years, the industry recovered.

    What they didn’t recover from was a series of 6 devestating freezes between 1977 and 1989 that brought temperatures in the teens throughout the groves. The worst of those freezes took place during Christmas 1983 and January 1985. Those basically destroyed the major citrus producing area located north and west of Orlando.

    So as CO2 was increasing between 1900 and 2000, the groves were forced further and further south, from NE Florida, to the area north and west of Orlando then finally to the area south of Orlando.

    I need a proof reader. Meant “One of the worst”

  7. Andy Weiss says:

    Those freezes in the 1980’s were incredible. It takes temps near 20 degrees with wind to kill an orange tree and the groves north and west of Orlando were completely destroyed. Probably upper 20’s all the way down to the southern tip.

    One of those freezes it got down to -6 in Macon, GA.
