US Having Its Coldest Six Month Period Since 1912

ScreenHunter_438 Mar. 12 05.38

(To date, October-March temperatures are the coldest since 1899 – but they will rise some before the end of the month – and may pass 1912.)

77% of the US has been below normal temperature since October 1.

  1. We know Obama, your healthcare plan failed to draw in enough tax revenue because nobody wants it……can’t afford it, need jobs, need to pay tuition costs instead.
    Now your pushing climate change so you can implement carbon taxes as an alternative………..but again people don’t care. They are focused on meeting their monthly bills and desperately trying to find a good job that no longer exists.

    I call our present situation “The Al Gore Earth furnace”

    The Washington Post
    The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen , Norway
    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

    Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.

    I apologize, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post – 90+ years ago.

      Like now, the old media preferred drama in the Arctic.
      Amundsen’s rowing team didn’t have Reggie’s blowtorch or the nuclear icebreakers and didn’t start in Norway as the probably should have.

      “Although the Maud drifted and shouldered her way about 2500 miles west of Nome (Alaska) the currents carried her but little in a northerly direction. It was for this reason that Captaln Amundsen ordered the expedition to be abandoned, The lowest temperature recorded during the drift was 84 deg. below zero.”

        Shock news: Scandinavian Scientist in 1929 knows more about oceanic circulation than the 2014 Australian Climate Council.
        “Formerly it was assumed that the oceanic circulation was caused by the winds, but recent investigations have made it clear that the main cause is the direct transformation of radiant heat from the sun imparted to the water in lower latitudes, and transported with the warm surface currents to the Arctic and Antarctic “centres,” to which I have alluded.”

          Just love how some of these people question the credentials of this writer but never question those of Al Gore who isn’t a scientist, and who flunked out of divinity school. Pretty nervy to call others “biased.” Check yourself.

  4. 100 years is not even a dot on the Earth’s timeline. Climate change is real and has been occurring naturally for over 4.5+ billion years and will continue to do so, no matter what man does (or thinks he can do). Robbing ever dollar from hard working Americans will do nothing other than line the pockets of a select few (UN, Al Gore, researchers, politicians, etc.).
    Just like the African humid period began and ended suddenly, there is nothing man can do about it but there is one thing that we all can be sure of and that is some how, some way … it has to be Bush’s fault! :-)

  5. The cold spell actually doe snot disprove global warming, contrary to what is popularly thought. Ample evidence indicates that very frequently changes in rainfall can ameliorate warming of temperatures from man-made emissions of greenhouse gases in multiple ways:

    1) A poleward shift of the Hadley circulation can increase cloud cover on the edge of the tropical monsoon belts. As seen very frequently in Australia since the middle 1970s, this can lower temperatures compared to a simple warming from greenhouse gases by up to 5˚C or 10˚F
    2) A poleward shift of the Hadley circulation can reduce cloud cover over formerly Mediterranean climates, severely lowering night temperatures, as seen dramatically in southwestern Australia in 2010 (‘http://www.bom.gov.au/web03/ncc/www/awap/temperature/meandecile/3month/colour/history/nat/2010060120100831.gif’ and ‘http://www.bom.gov.au/web03/ncc/www/awap/rainfall/decile/3month/colour/history/wa/2010060120100831.gif’). Note that average runoff into Perth’s dams since 2006 is about 17 percent of the virgin mean and was only once underdone between 1882 and 2000.
    3) A poleward shift in the Hadley circulation can cause high pressure systems to drive colder air into continents east of the former Mediterranean climate zones, as seen recently in the US.

      You’re correct, in that cold (or hot) spells are weather, not climate. What does disprove it is the temperature record over the last 15 or so years, which (when not “adjusted”), shows no warming trend.
