Baby, It's Cold Outside...

...and it's not even January yet. We're getting hit with another 2-4" tonight, with wind gusts at 35-40 mph.

Detroit has nearly double the amount of snowfall than normal. Chicago and Milwaukee have seen nearly triple the amount of the snowfall thus far. Spokane already has 57" this season, which is equal to the amount they normally receive.

And who can forget the snow in Las Vegas and New Orleans?

Which leads to this article at Canada Free Press: The Worst Climate Predictions of 2008. Some excerpts:

“You could potentially sail, kayak or even swim to the North Pole by the end of the summer. Climate scientists say that the Arctic ice . . . is currently on track to melt sometime in 2008.” Ted Alvarez, Backpacker Magazine Blogs, June, 2008.

Soon after this prediction, a huge Russian icebreaker got trapped in the thick ice of the Northwest Passage for a full week. The Arctic ice hadn’t melted in 2007, it got blown into warmer southern waters. Now it’s back.

No More Skiing? “Climate Change and Aspen,” Aspen, CO city-funded study, June, 2007.

Aspen’s study predicted global warming would change the climate to resemble hot, dry Amarillo, Texas. But in 2008, European ski resorts opened a month early, after Switzerland recorded more October snow than ever before. Would-be skiers in Aspen had lots of winter snow—but a chill factor of 18 below zero F. kept them at their fireplaces instead of on the slopes.

If there's one thing I'm grateful for in 2008, it's that Al Gore has solved Global Warming.

Now if only someone would let him know.
