Bummer: Climate Change Lecture Cancelled Due To Snow

Hello, Gore Effect!

(Windsor Star) You may be tempted to snicker at the irony that a discussion on climate change at the University of Windsor was called off due to Wednesday’s wild weather.

But plant biologist Catherine Potvin’s afternoon lecture was only one of many special events and regularly scheduled activities that were shut down by the sudden snowstorm.

I’m snickering. How about you? Unless you are a Warmist, then you’re blaming snow on too much heat from GHGs. Let’s look at the “wild weather” link

The bad news is that Windsor utterly smashed its winter snowfall record on Wednesday. The really bad news? This may not be the last blast of the year.

According to Environment Canada’s weather hotline, the March 12 snowfall total as of 9:30 p.m. at Windsor Airport was 12 centimetres — more than enough for this winter’s snowfall total to bust the previous all-time record.

“It’s a lot of snow, for sure,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson earlier in the day. “Unfortunately, given the forecast over the next couple of weeks, we could still be adding to it after that.”

Windsor’s previous snowfall record — set in the winter of 2004 and 2005 — was 225.5 cm.

Furthermore, the prediction for this morning was to see a low of -17C, which would smash the record of -13.9C for March 13th. According to the Weather Channel, it is -15C in Windsor right now.

(CBC) “And with respect to temperature, [it’s been] the coldest winter since the winter of ’78-79,” Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson said.

That was back when the media was worried about a coming ice age. Wait, wait, sorry, I forgot, cold is also caused by too much heat.

BTW, Detroit is 2.9 inches away from tying their seasonal snow record. Set in 1880-1881. Toledo, Ohio, is 51 inches above normal for snow.

    WOW Teach it is just like Gore predicted with extreme weather more hot and more cold thanks for pointing it out. Do you think this years will be another top 10 hotties on the planet ?

    Snow and cold in Canada in March?? This proves that global warming is a hoax!! Certainly if all you do is look out your window in Canada you might think this is one of the coldest winters ever!

    Fortunately, scientists obtain temperature records from all over the Earth, not just one place. Scientists are finicky that way. As it turns out 2013 was a pretty warm year overall. And the next El Nino year will break all the records!

    The Earth continues to warm. Radiant energy from the Sun is absorbed by the Earth and released where it’s passage to deep space is slowed by greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, with CO2 being the one most responsible for the warming. Where does the extra CO2 come from? We’re burning coal, oil and gas generating CO2 at a rate much faster than the Earth can absorb it. The ocean is absorbing CO2 (lowering the pH a bit) and the CO2 remaining in the atmosphere is causing the Earth to warm.

    Why do some deny the evidence? Various reasons. Some are paid to deny. For ideological reasons, some dislike the potential policy repercussions. Some are ignorant of the data and believe their “authorities”. Some distrust scientists, professors, liberals and intellectuals, reflexively believing the opposite of what they say.

    The Earth continues to warm.

    That does not make sense to me. The discussion was called off, but Catherine’s was “only one” to be shut down? Especially with that qualifier of “but” at the start of the sentence.

    And as J knows, it was not “extreme” weather that was pushed as the change, it was a melting world. IT was a “no-more-snow” world. It was only when our world stopped warming did they change the meme from “global warming” to “climate extremes”. Which means nothing. When you look at weather only over 150 year period, you have a HUGE chance of getting more extremes than what is currently recorded.

    If you have a 20-sided die, and you roll it only 5 times, the chance of you getting a 1 or 20 is very slim. HOwever, if you roll that die 100 times, then your average is more precise.

    “Do think this year will be another top ten hotties on the planet?” Easy, John- do to data adjustments, most of the “top ten” were in the 30’s. And of course you’re only talking about a top ten list in a 135 year time span. John, do you think there were probably hotter, and colder years in the other 4 billion we don’t know about? I thought so.

    Of course not, JL…. man wasn’t around much during that time. It’s only man and his man-created CO2 that causes the earth to be warm.

    or cold.
