    Default DAMN, there's so much snow in Calgary...

    From my backyard:


    Self portrait, I'm vain, and sure, I don't have a jacket on but I swear it's really cold too(about zero).

    A few cars off the road here and there. Never seen snow like this this early... Global warming?

    Scientists are actually calling it "Climate Change" now, because it allowed room for the deniers to say "Well what about the places getting colder?!" But ya... that's pretty wild ... September 8th and you're already able to build more Packers fans??

    Yeah, I know, unfair advantage but what is a Packers fan to do, NOT build a frozen army?

    So it snowed even harder last night and this morning. Tree branches and trees fell over all over the city. There were power outages all day in parts of the city. There were accidents. What a mess.

    Yeah, I think it's over now though. I mean the snow is still there but they're calling for weather in the 20s come Saturday.

    Global warming is a crock of poop..... sorry.

    It is yet another excuse to raise taxes and continue to fund the fraud and corruption that is western governments.... particularly the US.


    Again, these are just the “adjustments”or “corrections” that GISS has applied in the last three years and nine months to the 19 Arctic stations. I have no way of knowing what they did before August of 2010.

    Note the trend line in Figure 4. These recent changes to the data have resulted in more than half of all the warming that has supposedly taken place since the bottom of the Little Ice Age and a third of the difference between GISS LOTI and RSS seen in Figure 1.

    We may never know what the real temperature change has been.

    http://notrickszone.com/2014/07/01/n...a-adjustments/

    If this scandal receives the coverage it deserves (can’t wait for the coverage in the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star), then it may at last make the public – which has largely lost interest in climate – realize that this is not merely a policy non-issue; it represents one of the greatest corruptions of both science and public policy in living memory.

    If that realization dawns, the kindly Swedish professor may not have been persecuted in vain. Meanwhile, the next time somebody asks why there aren’t more publicly skeptical climate scientists, just quote the case of Lennart Bengtsson.

    http://business.financialpost.com/20...e-mccarthyism/

    The fact that surface temperatures have not warmed over the past 17 years showing that their climate models are unreliable, is now amazingly being refuted with quick new research led by James Risbey. In just a matter of weeks, he is leading the charge demonstrating his clearly predisposed bias. Risbey now excuses their nonsense of models that have overestimated global warming with a slapped together study published in Nature Climate Change asserting that their models actually generate good estimates of recent and past trends provided they also took into account natural variability known as El Nino-La Nina phases in the Pacific. OOPS! Cycles?

    http://armstrongeconomics.com/2014/0...warming-trend/

    he speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’

    Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.

    But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.

    Well most of the summer it was +30 here.

    We get wind currents coming over the Rockies(only about 1 hour and 20 minute drive and you're in Banff) and those currents can drastically change weather patterns. I've been out in my backyard here in February comfortably in a T shirt so it goes both ways.

    Still, blizzards in early September is bizzare and so is 20 weather just after said blizzard.
