    I was truly expecting more winter but here in the South, the weather has reached 80 degrees in February! However, the skeptics will tell you there is no such thing as "Global Warming." I am just wondering why it is that its so warm here in the South and people are wearing shorts, flowers are trying to bloom and some people have had to use their air conditioners?

    Perhaps the Ground Hog only saw his shadow for the North?

      We have had the same in Virginia. It is by far the warmest in the 15 years I have lived here.

      NASA and the NOAA reported that last year was the warmest on record for the planet. Many extremists of course claimed they were lying.

      This January was the third warmest in 137 years of record keeping.

      Fortunately, the Trump administration has promised to kill the EPA, climate change research and the international climate change agreement. wink

          Coincidentally, Trump just announced his proposed budget for 2018. It calls for a massive increase in military spending and major cuts in non-defense programs. It especially targets the EPA among others:

          "Multiple officials have also made clear over the last 48 hours that the Environmental Protection Agency and foreign aid will be cut significantly under the new plan." - CNN

          Strange that he wants to increase a military budget that is 7X larger than the next largest on the planet ...

            Given his MO--not strange at all!

    "WeatherAction is involved in the Global Warming/Climate Change debate
    where we point out that the world is now cooling not warming and there is no observational evidence in the thousands and millions of years of data that changes in CO2 have any observable effect on weather or climate in the real world.

    There are no scientists in the world who can produce such observational data and we challenge anyone reading this to send us such observational evidence from the real world or find someone who can and get them to produce it. There is only effect the other way, namely that ocean temperatures control average CO2 levels due to basic laws of physics about the soluability of CO2 gas in (sea) water. Boris Johnson, the (then) Mayor of London has expressed interest in what we say: see article

    Thank you, Piers Corbyn, MSc (astrophysics), ARCS, FRAS, FRMetS
    Director WeatherAction"

    The "world may be cooling" but the South didn't get the memo ...

    Looks like March is going to be an interesting month. Finally, the South is getting a glimpse of Winter!
