Officially Whacked Out Weather

Mon Sep 28, 2009 2:19 pm

After a normal June and July with it's mix of sunny cool days and cold, drizzly or snowy days, things went upside down. August was so warm by early September all the trees started to sprout. Now it's basically October and not one, but two snowstorms that are typical for July 1st hit.
It's rarely been this cold and snowy almost two weeks into spring in the area of MDZ. Temps well below 0C at night for the next few days. Snow on the ground by October is totally unheard of outside the mountains and the south (Patagonia)...  spin

Some say the warmer atmosphere actually leads to colder weather because the evaporation causes cooling and at the same time more moisture for storms like this. So paradoxically as climate changes, winters could get colder or snowier...

Snow is nice, but it's about time for girls in bikini!

This is why I don't believe in man made global warming. Weather is unpredictable, even with all the science and knowledge we think we have.

The Global warming issue has been beaten to death, I personally do believe in human caused climate change, wheather it leads to global warming or cooling is of course the big question.

But releasing so much emissions, plus emission from mass farming animals, plus cutting the prairies for farming, plus forest depletion, plus cities and their bubble effects... I think the totality of those things must affect the climate.

Regardless, one thing most people seem to agree is that weather has been strange in the last few years.

Yes, it has been. This past summer has been the "coolest" summer since I have been in North Texas (19 years).

Yeah, it is easy to do that.
