    Whatever Obama touches, he destroys. Carter was incompetent, but Obama is intentional. He reminds me of a concept from the bomb of a movie, “John Carter”, which described Zodanga as a predator city. Obama is the predator president.

    I’m calling total BS on the Southeast. We are not 0-5F above normal. We are below 3-10F below normal. They called for 61F two days this week, and it only made it to 44F.

    When I scrape ice off the windshield each and every morning for two weeks, that is not 0-5F above normal, you climate bastards. Get it right!

      I have to agree. We are over a thousand miles apart, and where it says I am experiencing 10-15 below average, it is closer to 25. Not only can they not fore or hind cast, they cannot even report accurately.

      • Gail Combs says:

        So do I .

        When you have 2 inches of ice on the stock tanks it is not 31 °F to 32 °F. Those are the ‘Average’ Minimums for January 1st to January 31st for my area. The ‘Average’ high for the area is 51 °F to 52 °F.

        The actual for January:
        The average min was 23 °F with a low of 1 °F a good 8°F to 9°F below normal.
        Highs: 48 °F for the average with a low of 26 °F a good 3°F to 4°F below normal.

        So Mid North Carolina was running a good 4°F below normal at the very least for the month of January.
        For the first week of February the average 54 °F/33 °F
        Actual: 53 °F/36 °F and wet and miserable. So they are correct for February … So far.

        Don’t worry guys we have another Arctic BLAST in the forecast: http://www.stormsurfing.com/stormuser2/images/dods/glob_250.swf

    • We’re running about 10° below normal up here in Hew Hampshire, so I guess they’re only off by 10-15°. That’s not really all that bad, considering that they can’t manage simple addition & subtraction.

  3. Anthony Bremner says:

    There are already problems in the East this winter since closing a coal plant. 75 million gallons of polluting diesel fuel were burned last year to compensate in cold weather. The pipelines are not big enough to provide enough natural gas which creates shortages and soaring prices. Closing coal plants without alternatives would be a disaster since solar is only 1% of our power?

    • Gail Combs says:

      Oh, it is going to really come back to bite them in the Ar$e and SOON.

      In 2011, Wind energy generated 2.9 % of our electricity
      Biomass 1.4%,
      Geothermal 0.4%

      And Solar a measly 0.1%
      The bulk of renewable, Hydroelectricity, declined in 2012, producing 14 percent less electricity (6.9%)
      That is a total of 11.7%

      Nuclear is ~19% and Natural Gas ~ 30%,

      Coal was 42% down to ~37%
      The coal generating capacity in 2012 was 318 gigawatts. Since Obummer took office 4.6 gigawatts have already been retired. 8.9 gigawatts slated for 2012 and another 2 in 2013. For 2014, the planned are 4.7 gigawatts in closures and for 2015 the planned are 9.9 gigawatts. That is a total of 30.1 gigawatts or ten percent of the capacity.

      The old article on coal plant closings was bad enough, the newer article shows where it is going to hurt the most. The Mid Atlantic states to Ohio, to Tennessee. Generating Companies are Shuttering Coal Plants at Record Rates

      And it is not just Coal, Nuclear plants are closing early too!

      Several U.S. Nuclear Plants Retiring Early; Others at Risk October 14, 2013

      ….5 existing nuclear units are being shut down by the end of next year, bringing the number of nuclear units in the United States to 99. Unfortunately, this may be the fate of many other nuclear units as well. There are a total of 38 possible units on a retirement list…

      Nuclear energy currently generates 19 percent of our nation’s electricity. If all 38 units at risk were prematurely retired, about one-third of our nuclear fleet would be shut down and replaced with renewable and natural-gas generating technologies. Electricity prices would eventually increase as natural gas prices increase and as subsidies that mask the true cost of renewable energy are phased out.

      Shutdown of coal = ~ 4% of capacity
      Shutdown of nuclear = ~ 6% of capacity
      and throw in another 1% for hydro (removal of dams)
      So the ecoloons are shutting down 10% of our RELIABLE generating capacity BEFORE the next presidential election.

      Do not forget ERCOT (Texas Electric) has already had brown-out/black out problems. Duke Energy (mid atlantic) had fears of brown outs this January.

      And in 2010 CNN reported: Non-disaster U.S. power outages up 124 percent since early ’90s; U.S. electricity reliability low compared to some nations So the problem is only going to get worse.

      The replacement cost for that capacity is somewhere around ten times what Americans are now paying. Ohio who uses the most coal will be the hardest hit with replacement cost LOCKED IN AT by FirstEnergy, at a shocking price of $357 per megawatt (2012 cost was just $16 per megawatt) In the mid-Atlantic area covering New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and DC the new price is $167 per megawatt instead of $16 per megawatt.

      I sure do not want to be the Democratic politician telling all those inner city folks why Obama raised the cost of electric by a factor of ten and that I agreed with him.

    It’s not going to bite THEM in the ar*e, the 1%s are going to be warm.
    It’s going to bite the poor urban folk.
    Cold KILLS.
    It’s all part of the 1%s Depopulation plans.
    Google Agenda 21 for dummies.

    Obama Hoping To Cool The US “ECONOMY” Down By Illegally Destroying The US Coal Industry… fixed the headline for you.
