1983 : Snow Was A Thing Of The Past In New York

November 2, 1983

The recent forecast by the Environmental Protection Agency that a general warming of the earth’s atmosphere will occur during the next decades has sent shivers all along the East Coast.

In Florida they are afraid that the coastal cities will be submerged by the rising Atlantic Ocean. In Arizona they are wondering whether the recent floods will become a permanent feature of their climate. And in New York they are thinking of selling the city’s snowplows.

CO2 is a powerful and sneaky substance. Thirty years ago it caused floods in Arizona and snow-free winters in New York. Now it causes droughts in Arizona and heavy snow in New York.

The NFL did a Super Bowl XLVIII presentation in New York on Wednesday in preparation for the big game coming in — somehow — just 46 days.

By far the biggest concern with the 2014 Super Bowl, being played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, is the weather.  Gary Meyers of the New York Daily News dropped a bit of a bombshell relating to crazy weather on Twitter, too, reporting that if a “crippling snowstorm” comes into play, the NFL could move the Super Bowl date.

    CO2 causes “crazy” weather.. and by that of course I mean it causes the people to go crazy, making them think it has never happened before.

    New York issues severe global warming alert. Kids won’t know what a snow plough is.

    Around DC, a half inch of snow is “crippling” and shuts down the Government plus all the schools.
