    Now look… Vancouver has had a warm winter.. warmest since 118 years the newspaper said.
    Doesn’t that mean .. that 118 yrs ago it was pretty much just as warm a winter.. PRIOR to anthropogenic global warming.

    It’s an El Nino year hear on the coast and that means WARMER.
    It doesnt mean the sky is falling.

    Anyway last week would have been the poster child for global warming in Canada. “0” in Whitehorse. -16 in Resolute and above or just below freezing all across the country the day I looked at the TV weather. Montreal has been balmy all February.

    Harpo must have done nothing wrong yesterday because we are back beating the climate change issue again.

    There’s a rub though: At some point individual weather events outside the climatic norm will have to be blamed on global warming because it’s real.

    My favorite is the people who say global warming is not real and in the same breath talk about the northwest passage needing to be protected for Arctic sovereignty. If it is not real then wouldn’t the ice up there be just fine? Sigh.

    And warmists used Hurricane Katrina and an especially warm winter in Ontario. In fact, for a while there any weather that wasn’t absolutely milquetoast average was used by warmongers. I don’t recall a post then complaining about it. I guess you’re just getting a little tetchy now that your “settled science” has become rather unsettled.

      @the rat, people did complain that Hurricane Katrina was misused by some to ‘prove’ global climate change. It’s been noted several times that weather is not the same thing as climate, and it is irresponsible for anybody to claim that a single weather event is the result of or proof of, for or against, the science of global climate change.

      You just weren’t looking for those posts at the time.

        @James Bow, the Rat is just reality challenged…

    I call it not seein’ the forest on accounta the trees. Climate = forest. Weather = trees. Of course, it’s not that they don’t see it. They won’t see it. There are none so blind as they who will not see. Maxims R me.
