Is this freezing cold weather caused by global warming?

    Don't believe your own eyes and ears. Believe what they tell you on CNN and NBC, like a good citizen should.

    No, it's caused by 'natural variety' as the Met Office opines, but any warming is proof positive that we need to halt the world's economy and sacrifice our rights for the Earth lol

    The Met Office was also forced to admit that there hasn't been any statistically significant warming for almost 13 years.

    The polar ice caps are melting.  Colder oceans, some species are dying. It is getting colder in areas that are not normally as cold and the summers are hotter. Dallas had record consecutive 100 degree days last year. L.A. had a 114 degree day. Unseasonably warm in New England last week. Melbourne and other parts of Australia were in the teens and 20s with 100 added to it. Nah, this global warming stuff is just all fluff.

    Although, it could be associated with a cycle that was never previously measured. I kind of side with it being a cycle every 100 or 200 or __ years. I have no data to back this up. Just a hunch.

    Part of the reason for the extreme heat in Australia, especially last week, was caused by the late arrival of the monsoon to the north. Believe me, I did not enjoy the 46C degree day here in Sydney recently. Glad I'm not inland where they've been getting weeks of that kind of heat.

    There will be hot and cold days and maybe weeks (depending on what part of the planet you are on) all the time, and they do cycle up and down. I think a better and clearer way to look at Global Warming is not isolated incidents, but overall trends.  The snow in America and Europe could be part of that trend, and the more data we get, the better.

    I'm going to be very interested to see the results of some recent studies on what the daily weather was like a century ago. Recently, when I've had time, I have been helping digitise ship's weather logs from around the turn of last century. (the wonders of citizen science on the web). I hope that they have enough information soon to get a good picture of the areas where the British Navy were present.
