    Great Lakes Ice Cover More Than 1000% Of Normal

    I’m sorry to tell you are wrong Steve.

    As it is not a recognized warming artifact it must be graded, on the IPCC/McKibben standard scale, as a lesser unprecedented. Therefore, as the grading definition goes (with a 97.666% certaintly), it is only a new normal. And as such doesn’t count.

    Thank you, Steven, for maintaining your sense of your humor in reporting a serious attempt to control the public with deception.

    • Smokie says:

      Wow, control the Public with deception? Whether that is a joke or not that is a heavy line. Deception is the name of the game when it comes to Global Warming and the Obama administration. The Global Warming Folks and Obama does that everyday of the week without worry.

    Yeah, the maple sap season a full month late. Crocuses are now blooming. Also a full month late.

    Any minute now, the “climatologists” are going to start clamoring for additional grant funding to study the possibility of global cooling again.

      ended, insert an ended between “season” and “a”

        “really, really wishes word press allowed edits for just 5 minutes post submission”
        With my typing skill make that 30 minutes.

        Ended? Where do you live? My sap started running April 3 and that was only a trickle. I’m still waiting for a decent run, still nothing. (Adirondacks of NY).

    1000%? Looks to me like there’s something wrong there, like the last “0” actually being a “%” symbol. 1000% means “ten times as much as”, and only last week Lake Superior was nearing 100%. A jump to 10X doesn’t look right.

      50/5 = 10

    • Phil Jones says:

      Let me explain it using Common Core Math:

      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100
      [10] [10][10][10][10][10][10] [10][10][10] = 100

      100 and 100 and 100 and 100 and 100 and 100 and 100 and 100 and 100 and 100
      Is 1000 %

      See, simple!!

    All totally consistent with earth having a fever. (sarc)

  7. geran says:

    If we are talking climate science, as per IPCC, then we can define this as 10000%.

    Hey, some warmers believe CO2 is 40% of the atmosphere.

    (Let’s not tell….)

    • Gail Combs says:

      Like I said Post-normal math. That’s what Common Core wants to teach.

      • squid2112 says:

        Looks to me, if you compare the current ice (last blue bar on the right) with the median line (light blue line), it looks about 1000% to me … or that would be 10x for you common core challenged folks.

  8. Psalmon says:

    The next myth to fall will be Great Lakes water levels, which have been below normal for over a decade. This was climate change too, and just as supposedly was supposed to take decades to recover if ever. With all the snow on the ground and above normal precip forecast for this spring, we will see if “decades” really means “16 months”.

    Another effect of the ice will be ice next year. The average temperature of the lakes do not rise as much after a big ice year. It typically affects 3-5 years downstream. This was true in 1994 to 95 and 96. Also in 1977 to 79 and even into the early 80s. It’s hard to warm up a lake the size of Michigan or Superior after a winter like this.

    So watch for levels and this Fall watch for average temps leading into Winter. Like Ahrnold, the ice will be back.

  9. Andy Oz says:

    Climate Experts should take ice cores on the Great Lakes and determine whether the settled science has settled any further.

  10. NomoreGore says:

    I think the year to beat is 79. And it looks possible

  11. Keyser Soze says:

    Wow are you all brain dead? ANYONE with a brain can see this is such a BS lie created by the conservative parties around the world. Plus you all buy it, lol. If you have children or you yourself are also under 50 to 60, guess what? You will get to die together, isn’t that nice? The same people funding these “Studies” are the 80 year old billionaires who control all the world’s major governments. They DON’T HAVE TO CARE when they will be long dead before the shit hits the fan.! They use specious arguments like this, which is actually proof that climate change is happening now, faster than ever. The only argument that might get through to people as dense as all of you appear to be is this, we cannot survive without living oceans, if our oceans die WE DIE! At the rate we are going today, they have less than ten years, turn off Fox News people and start doing some actual research. For God’s sake, look at the poor people in the US with FLAMMABLE WATER, this is what their government has allowed big business to do. These families can’t use their water for ANYTHING! So they ask for an EPA assessment that takes forever, when the dude is there and checks the water he says just as he’s done. “Off the record, and seriously I will never say this in public I will lose my job. Don’t use your water for anything, but my report will say, no HAS to say that it is fine” . When you trust studies like this, you are trusting people capable of that level of corruption.

    • PeterB in Indianapolis says:

      You accuse the rest of us here of being brain-dead and then type a complete run-on paragraph that is almost completely unintelligible? Learn to make sense please.

    • Gail Combs says:

      BROTHER, do you have that completely upside down and backwards.

      You are correct the Billionaires ARE funding it but it is the IPCC and World Wild Life Fund they are funding. My Comments detailing the Banks, Shell Oil and the Royals, Rockefeller/Rothschild combo who OWN Shell, promotion of CAGW

      To put it bluntly they want ALL your wealth, ALL your land and your labor (aka slavery) and some of them even want you DEAD! If you do not believe me I suggest you read a DEMOCRAT’s take on this link

      Straight from the mouth of one of those Billionaires:
      “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” – Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor

      That is the number of servant/slaves the masters want left alive.

      Heck if you bother to look you can see they are already determining the DNA in babies and cross correlating with behavior. Monsanto et al. already has sheep, pig and mule cloning down pat.

      You can even find “Socialists” saying the same in writing.

      The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way.

      A part of eugenic politics would finally land us in an extensive use of the lethal chamber. A great many people would have to be put out of existence simply because it wastes other people’s time to look after them.

      and it is happening RIGHT NOW!

      The UK Hospitals are ‘paid millions to put patients on death pathway’

      Hospitals are being paid millions of pounds to reach targets for the number of patients put on a controversial pathway for the withdrawal of life-saving treatment, according to data based on Freedom of Information requests.

      This also include not just old folks but babies and children.

      Sick children are being placed on a controversial end-of-life “pathway” previously only thought to have been used for elderly and terminally-ill adult patients…

      The Liverpool Care Pathway, under which medication, nutrition and fluids can be withdrawn, is being used on young patients as well as severely-disabled new born babies, it has been revealed….

      …a doctor disclosed in a leading medical journal that he had presided over ten cases involving end-of-life procedures for newborns.

      In the article he described in excruciating detail how the process of withdrawing food and fluid from severely disabled newborns could take an average of ten days during which the infant becomes “smaller and shrunken”.

      Ministers have ordered an independent inquiry into the use of the LCP, a process on which 130,000 elderly and terminally-ill adult patients die each year….
      (wwwDOT)telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9710426/Children-placed-on-controversial-death-pathway.html

      Also look up Pascal Lamy and “Global Governance” He makes it very very clear that
      “so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed.” He also says that an agreement was made in the 1930s that the billionaires and banksters would get the world government they wanted.

    • Gail Combs says:

      Oh, and in case you think the Banksters are not ‘Socialists” please read this Speech in Congress (you can do a ‘Find” for Russia.)

      And this explanation of why Banksters and mega-corporations hate capitalism “Evil Socialism” vs “Evil Capitalism”
