Global-Warmers Snowed Under

USA Today, 2/25/08, Pg 3A: Massive snow will add 50 feet of water to Lake Powell, some areas have 180% above normal, Colorado is 132% above normal.
-
Roanoke Times, 2/27/08, Pg Va3: Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover is at a 42 year historical record.

-
Not only is there snow cover – but it’s deep too! Seattle ski areas have over 200 inches of deep snow. All across Asia and Europe snow and cold records are being met or set.
-
So – where’s Al Gore and his 1500 scientists and all his fellow-traveler journalists who just love to pickup on every storm and explain it as man-made global warming?
-
The reality that Gore and friends don’t want to address is that we are in a 250 year global warming cycle that started in 1750 at the end of the “little ice age” and that has very little to do with man-made anything!
-
This cycle is a gradual ( less than (1) degree per 100 years) change that has significant hot and cold spell variations. One of the large and long variations was the cold spell that lasted from 1940 to 1975. Perhaps we’re entering another one of these variations, perhaps not – at any rate Gore and his friends do not have any credibility in forecasting changes nor in establishing cause-effect relationships for weather or climate changes.
-
If it weren’t politically incorrect – one might even call them high-rent medicine-men and snake-oil salesmen making a killing on fear mongering. How pathetic!
