  1. James gleick. Any relation to peter the forger?

  2. Andy DC says:

    That was before climate scientists determined that global warming could make it much colder. Climate science has become far more sophisticated than is used to be!

  3. Steve Case says:

    Speaking of Peter H Gleick, here’s the latest from him:

    • Bill says:

      In this article, Gleick actually says (or is quoted as saying) that sea level has increased 8 inches in the last several decades (near where Sandy hit) and could rise 1.2 meters over the next several decades (near where the company in the article is building their headquarters).

      Off topic, this is related to Solyandra. I could not find the really sickening video I saw a few years ago that went on for minutes showing them destroying (or recycling?) countless taxpayer funded cylindrical solar cells, but this one has a bit of it plus the environmental consequences.

    • NancyG says:

      I hate going to HuffPo but I read the article. The map shows a 100 year event flood zone. Isn’t that a one in one hundred year flood? Gleick makes it sound like that area will be under water forever. Are humans supposed to expect *no* extreme weather events in 100 years? Give me a break.

      Sandy also hit during a full moon. Storm surge, high tide, full moon. On Long Island most people have rebuilt, a few are still in the process of rebuilding. So it didn’t chase people away. There are no abandoned homes because of Sandy. I don’t think people are worried.

      • Anthony S says:

        Sandy hit during full moon and a high tide, and the surge was barely bigger than the 1838 storm which hit at low tide.

    “Federal climate experts”? I wonder what color their shirts are?

  5. Gail Combs says:

    Right now I would settle for North Carolina to be like it was 10 years ago…. WARM!

    ………..

    In April 2004 we had 2 days – 91F. and 4 days – 93F. With a month of May having 17 days over 90F and a high for two days of 98F. (2004 was just past the 2nd peak of cycle 23)

    In 2011 the April highs ranged from 55F to 87F we did not see temps over 90F until May 23th (91F)

    In 2012 the April highs ranged from 51F to 86F we did not see temps over 90F until May 2th (91F)

    In 2013 the April highs ranged from 45F to 86F we did not see temps 90F or over til Jun 12th. (3 days, 90F, 90F, 95F for the entire month of June)

    In 2014 the April highs ranged from 52F to 85F we did not see temps over 90F or over til May 15th. One day @ 91F for the entire month of May, with 11 days 90F to 93F, and only one day at 95F for June. (2014 was peak of cycle 24)

    Some how I do not see this summer being as warm as 2004.

    Global Warming? Couldn’t proved it by the weather I have seen for the last four summers.

    • DD More says:

      Gail, someone from the EPA and NOAA will be visiting you and taking you on a trip to the ‘Climate Learning Center’ where they will ‘re-educate’ you to know that warm temperatures are really, really bad. Watch for them coming soon.

  6. sully says:

    6 feet of snow here and -12c. Summer was short and cool last year as well.

    The Daily Caller is following you (a h/t to Real Science at the bottom).
