Global Warming Update

By Greg Crosby

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | By now I assume everyone has heard that Al Gore's documentary about global warming won an Oscar last month for Best Documentary. I also assume that by now everyone has heard the "inconvenient truth" of hypocrite Al Gore's personal energy consumption. For those of you who have been away, the figures released by the Tennessee Center for Policy Research reported that Gore's 20-room mansion in Nashville, TN guzzles nearly 20 times the energy of the average American home, according to records obtained from the Nashville Electric Service. Gas and electricity for Gore's place cost nearly $30,000 last year. Heating and power for just his pool house alone cost $544 a month!


Since An Inconvenient Truth was released, Gore's home energy consumption has increased by over 13%. Meanwhile he continues to fly back and force across the country on private jets that, in one flight, will produce nearly double the amount of carbon dioxide produced by an average American in an entire year. And this guy tells ME to save energy?


But never mind about Gore, the alarmists say, we still need to do something about the "global warming" dangers. Okay, let's turn to the latest news on weather conditions for last week:


Record event report
National Weather Service Upton NY

... Record low temperature set at Kennedy Airport...

a record low temperature of 13 degrees was set at Kennedy today. This breaks the old record of 20 set in 2003.

The Toronto Star, Toronto, Canada
March 6, 2007

Frigid conditions made the month the coldest February in 28 years, according to Environment Canada's senior climatologist David Phillips.

Not since 1979 has February dished up such bone-rattling conditions. The average temperature was -8.4C, which was three degrees colder than normal. That also made it the fifth coldest February since 1937 when weather records were first kept at what is now Pearson International Airport.

Mar. 5, 2007 the Shanghai Daily. Com

THE strongest March snowstorm to hit northeast China's Liaoning Province in 56 years has left at least one person dead and seven injured after the roof of an agricultural trade building collapsed under the weight of the snow, local sources said.

Beginning Saturday night, rain and snow has fallen continually in most parts of Liaoning, with reported precipitations of 36 millimeters in Shenyang, 56mm in Dalian and 68mm in Dandong, the Shenyang Meteorological Observatory reported.

Snow piled up two meters high in some areas, it said.

The snowstorm forced Taoxian International Airport in Shenyang to close at 8am yesterday.

By 4pm, more than 100 flights had been canceled and over 1,000 passengers were stranded at the airport, which was hoping to reopen today.

Eleven expressways in Liaoning were closed.

Worchester Telegram & Gazette
Worchester, Massachusetts
March 6, 2007


A meteorologist in the Taunton office of the National Weather Service today confirmed what anybody walking outside quickly realizes, which is, it is about as cold as it can be for the month of March.

At 11 a.m. it was 3 degrees above zero with a wind child of about 20 degrees below zero, Meteorologist William Simpson said.

The temperature at midnight was 16 degrees which is the March 6 record for the lowest maximum temperature for the date, according to Mr. Simpson.

The record low maximum temperature for the month of March is 10 degrees, set on March 3, 1950. With a high temperature of 9 degrees predicted for the rest of the day, today will rival that record even though it won't show in the record book because the high temperature was recorded at midnight.

"Certainly, today is the coldest March day since 1950," Mr. Simpson said.

Bitter Cold, Blowing Snow Hit Northeast
AP
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (March 6)
- Fierce wind and biting cold kept youngsters home from school Tuesday in upstate New York and authorities warned against perilous driving conditions already blamed for at least five deaths.

The National Weather Service posted a wind chill advisory for northern New York and Vermont, saying the temperature and wind could make it feel like 35 degrees below zero into Tuesday afternoon.

By late morning, the temperature at the northern New York city of Massena was 11 below zero and the wind chill was 34 below, the weather service said.

Burlington, Vt., had a temperature of 5 below and a wind chill down to minus 32.

In New Hampshire, National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Marine said nearly all the state would have near-record cold temperatures on Tuesday. At the summit of Mount Washington temperatures bottomed out at 37 degrees below zero Tuesday morning.

For some areas, it was the second day of hazardous driving conditions caused by blowing snow.


Maybe big Al should fly up to the Northeast and blow a little hot air around to thaw things out, what d'ya think?


The only other thing I can add is, it's a darn good thing we have global warming because otherwise it might really have been cold this year!
