Without fossil fuels this winter, almost everyone in Vermont would be dead.

    Mr. McKibben needs to read your posting just before this one. When you control the data you can make a monkey dance the Macarena or make Al Gore and Obama look intelligent. Both are impossible unless you cheat the data.

  2. emsnews says:

    Yes, there is a LOT of people in Vermont who still believe in global warming! It is pathetic but then, Mother Nature is a stern teacher and even the dumbest will eventually figure out the truth or end up dead, more likely.

    It will be 1º F above zero tonight in southern Vermont.

      One of my favorite quotes.

        Unfortunately the Progressives want to wrap the stupid up in cotton batting and then blame YOU for removing a member of their voting base.

        Think of all the lawsuits because an idiot parent allowed a kid to wander on to your property and he got himself hurt or killed. Think of Seatbelt LAWS or helmet LAWS or childproof medicine cap LAWS….

        • DD More says:

          Gail, have been wondering why the illegal alien child invasion wasn’t pressed on the Seatbelt LAWS or helmet LAWS or childproof medicine cap LAWS….

          Not one of those kids ridding the top of rail boxcars had any protective safety equipment, but those parents were so, so loving.

    Colder than what average?

  4. Bob Greene says:

    Is McKibben taking his weather from Lake Woebegone where everything is above average?

  5. darrylb says:

    If people read my comments, they would know I am skeptical of any significant AGW.
    However, in this comment, McKiblits is talking about the entire globle and not a specific área which is less tan 0.1%.
    I think the argument has to be adjusted a bit.

  6. aaron says:

    HEY!!!! Florida still hasn’t had snow yet. See, see, see, you deniers ?…….. ok, I am going to finish watching “the interview ” it hilariously funny!

  7. Dave N says:

    No-one just out of high school has experienced any global warming whatsoever.

  8. His views are protected by ‘freedom of religion’.

    To Weepy Bill…

    TOWARDS 700+ppm atmospheric CO2 🙂

    Let’s get it up where it used to be when the Earth’s plant life really flourished.

  10. Although that makes me think of Jim Jones and Jim Bakker.

  11. AndyG55 says:

    Anyway, what does he mean by “average”.

    I assume he is referring to a cherry-picked short-term cooler period in the much adjusted Giss/Hadcrut fabrication.

    It you take the whole of the Holocene, I would say that EVERY month experienced by anyone currently alive would be considerably BELOW average.

  12. aaron says:

    I remember 25…26 or so years ago, back in Maryland middle school, having to write an investigative paper on “The Global Warming”. Sitting in the media center amongst the earth day posters, scrolling through magazines and (microfish?😒) about the Brazilian clear cutting, inconclusive sciences, and the conflicts in the funding of public radio. In the end, all my hard work and investigations landed me a whooping C- . I didn’t realize I was supposed to write about the emotional argument of ” The Global Warming ” and did the objective type of thingy . I kinda late got the idea that the public radio scam section and probably most other sections should have been edited out or censored before submittal.

  13. None of the flower children in Vermont have experienced a summer past the summer of love.

  14. emsnews says:

    1967 in San Francisco was warm. I was there. Hippie chick time! Lots of fun.

    By 1970 it was cold and wet summer and winter. Brrrr…then I moved to Tucson then to super cold NYC. GRRRR….bitter cold.

    Learned to use fur coats. And fur lined gloves. The anti-fur movement came when it was warmer but I notice now that fashion designers in NYC are producing fur coats and items to keep warm. Heh. No skinny chicks are throwing paint on anyone wearing fur (and if they do this to me, they will be my next pelt!).

  15. PeterK says:

    Wouldn’t it be funny if this coming summer and only for this coming summer that all of the snow in the Eastern United States didn’t quite melt by the end of September and the Great Lakes still had about 20% ice coverage into September.

    • Edmonton Al says:

      According to the global “cooling” experts this will soon be happening…….;^D

    • Gail Combs says:

      Do not expect the news to report it though.

      Last year they “reported’ the Great Lakes ‘Ice Free’ and then the pictures of good size Icebergs showed up on facebook…. even a Wisconsin Dept of Natural Resources ratted out NOAA — snicker.

      http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2654119/But-summer-Icebergs-spotted-floating-Lake-Superior-despite-Great-Lakes-declared-ice-free.html“>Icebergs spotted floating on Lake Superior despite Great Lakes declared Ice Free [June 7th]

      Summer may have officially arrived, but not at Lake Superior.

      A Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources warden discovered some icebergs still afloat in Lake Superior near Madeline Island.

      Amie Egstad spotted the floating ice – which was covered in resting seagulls – while doing a routine check of commercial nets in the largest of the Great Lakes.

      The sight was at odds with data released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) at the weekend, which declared all of the Great Lakes ice-free….

    Bill McKibben should know that the temperature record that he refers to is bogus. If one cools the past and warms the present to make it look like there is a scary warming trend then his statement might be true according to the fraudulent data So what?

  17. gator69 says:

    Weepy Bill McKibben is now working for The Smithsonian. Gee, I wonder if he may have had anything to do with Dr Soon’s harassment.

  18. Bloke down the pub says:

    If the average that McKibben is referring to is that of the last thirty years, and if there had been a steadily rising trend as he seems to believe, then by definition the early years of a thirty year old must have been below average.

  19. Gail Combs says:

    GEE, Maybe we should go after the Smithsonian for hiring a TERRORIST ENDORSER!

    A year ago Bill McKibben as the 350.org leader endorsed the antics of some 350.org members in Texas that adopted these tactics:

    A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

  21. tabnumlock says:

    What a living-centric view. What’s so bad about being dead? Many of the greatest people of history are dead.

  22. BallBounces says:

    Has anyone, anywhere, at any time experienced the average temperature of the globe? Isn’t all experience local?
