It was cold out in the train yard today. I wish global baloney were true.

In the years since algore's declaration of global baloney the hottest year was 1998 and it has gotten colder every year since. I've been working outside in trainyards for 24 years and when someone tells me it's warming when I'm standing in 16 inches of snow thawing out frozen brake calipers with kerojet heaters so I can move a train, I just have to laugh. It hasn't snowed that much yet this year but if I'm lucky it won't. Last year we had one of the longest cold spells below 20 degrees we've seen since the mini ice age ended in the mid 1800's

C'mon you guys... get with it. Don't you know that it is colder because of global warming? Didn't you see that stupid movie where everything froze over. No matter what the weather does or doesn't do... global warming (and your SUV) is responsible.

Get with the program.
lol

Well, Red stole my thunder. I was going to point out that in some backwards, circular, pretzel logic that only Rev. Algore would understand (genuflect here GW sheep), global warming would indeed be to blame for the extreme cold. (?)

side note of absolutely no importance: j_g: my son just started with NS as a conductor. Hope his career is as at least as long as yours has been.

I'd like a link to that information so we can compare what NASA says below to your claim that "it" has gotten colder every year. Thanks.


NASA: 2007 Second Warmest Year Ever, with Record Warmth Likely by 2010

http://tinyurl.com/2u32dr


According to NASA scientists:

Through the first 11 months, 2007 is the second warmest year in the period of instrumental data, behind the record warmth of 2005, in the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) analysis. The unusual warmth in 2007 is noteworthy because it occurs at a time when solar irradiance is at a minimum and the equatorial Pacific Ocean has entered the cool phase of its natural El Niño — La Niña cycle.

… barring the unlikely event of a large volcanic eruption, a record global temperature exceeding that of 2005 can be expected within the next 2-3 years.

But couldn’t this all be the sun going through a phase of high solar radiation, a favorite explanation of those who deny that human-generated greenhouse gases are the primary cause of warming? No. As NASA explains:


The sun is another source of natural global temperature variability. Figure 3, based on an analysis of satellite measurements by Richard Willson, shows that 2007 is at the minimum of the current 10-11 year solar cycle. Another analysis of the satellite data (not illustrated here), by Judith Lean, has the 2007 solar irradiance minimum slightly lower than the two prior minima in the satellite era.

If you took the time to read carefully how this seeming paradox exists, you’d see that global warming can be responsible for extremes in weather at both ends of the thermometer: extreme warm weather and extreme cold weather. There are no sound-bite explanations; it’s a complicated issue. And real.

Extreme Weather On The Rise As Greenhouse Gases Drive Climate
ScienceDaily

BOULDER -- Expect hotter days, warmer nights, heavier rain and snowfall events, and more floods over the next century, says a new study published September 22 in the journal Science. The article reviews observations, impacts, and results from some 20 global climate models currently in use worldwide. It sizes up extreme events that have intensified during the past century and are expected to escalate over the next as carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases shake up the earth's climate. The paper's lead authors are David Easterling of NOAA's National Climatic Data Center and Gerald Meehl, a climate expert at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).

"A climate model is like a huge wok with a lot of stir-fry ingredients," says Meehl. "We throw in solar variability, ozone changes, greenhouse gases, and many other items in the form of equations. If the model's past climate matches fairly well what's already happened in the real world, we get some confidence in the recipe." Meehl's research was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation. NCAR's primary sponsor is the National Science Foundation.

The earth's average temperature has risen about 0.6 degree Celsius (1.1 degree Fahrenheit) since the start of the 20th century. The trend is most obvious in higher daily minimum temperatures. During the same period precipitation has increased over land in the mid- to high latitudes and decreased in the tropics. These two temperature and precipitation trends together can lead to changes in extreme weather, say the scientists."

And more on 2007 as a very warm year:

2007 Was Tied As Earth's Second Warmest Year

ScienceDaily (Jan. 17, 2008) —

Climatologists at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City have found that 2007 tied with 1998 for Earth's second warmest year in a century.
Goddard Institute researchers used temperature data from weather stations on land, satellite measurements of sea ice temperature since 1982 and data from ships for earlier years.
The greatest warming in 2007 occurred in the Arctic, and neighboring high latitude regions. Global warming has a larger affect in polar areas, as the loss of snow and ice leads to more open water, which absorbs more sunlight and warmth. Snow and ice reflect sunlight; when they disappear, so too does their ability to deflect warming rays. The large Arctic warm anomaly of 2007 is consistent with observations of record low geographic extent of Arctic sea ice in September 2007.

I think the earth tends to cleanse itself and takes us along for the ride.

All I know is it's friggen cold!
