Snow In Portland Is Totally Climate Change Doom

Black is white, up is down, hot is cold

(Oregon Live) Look outside. It’s probably snowing. In fact, in Portland, Tuesday was one of the “snowiest” days on record. The National Weather Service in Portland says this winter could be the coldest in 20 years.

Whenever the weather gets cold, someone somewhere, whether it’s in an email or the comments section of this website, says, “Well, it’s cold outside so global warming is obviously a hoax.”

So, is it?

First, the words. It’s more accurate to say “global climate change” than “global warming.” That’s because warming in some areas means cooling in others.

“While some places may end up getting warmer and hotter,” Jon Bonk, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Portland told us over the phone Wednesday, “that may result in conditions elsewhere, say the coast, where they may end up getting cooler.”

There’s always an excuse with these people, always a reason why the answer is always ‘climate change’. It reminds me of those little papers which provide reasons why the earth is only 6,000 years old. They always have an excuse.

    All I can tell ya is that here across the river from Portland in Vancouver it has been colder than a wet well diggers ass for a longer stretch than any time in recent memory and I have been around here for almost thirty years now.

    I grew up about 50 miles south of Portland in the late sixties. We would have 4 inches to a couple of feet every winter. No big deal. An old homesteader who we lived by said it was not uncommon to go ice skating on the Willamette river in the winter. I’ve never seen that before. But it could happen again. Then again, There are some fossil beds from the Cretaceaous period when the inland sea in the Willamette valley allowed the deposition of fossil marine life.
