    You obviously don't understand how global warming works.

    Scientist don't even use the term "Global Warming" anymore because so many people misunderstood the term. They now call it "Climate Change" to keep people from assuming just what you did. Just because it's cold here and there, doesn't mean the planet as a whole is not warming.

    Currently there's heat wave in India, that the temperatures are 4-8*C higher than average.
    & the day before yesterday, the heat wave in India is so much severe that, on that single day more than 293 people died of sunstroke, in my state alone & many animal deaths have been recorded.
    Note: this is only official statistics...

    Edit: Just read the news & yesterday was more horrible than the day before yesterday, more than 544 people died of sunstroke in my state alone...
    that's current total about: 837 Victims in just 2 days

    Doesn't matter ... the next super volcanic eruption will likely wipe most of out ... and there will be one icon_mad.gif

    "A super volcano is the most destructive force on this planet. Only a few exist in the world and when they erupt they do so with a force tens of thousands of times greater than other eruptions. They lie dormant for hundreds of thousands of years as a vast reservoir of magma builds up inside them before finally they unleash their apocalyptic force, capable of obliterating continents. They threaten the survival of mankind."

    I've met NJDewd in person, I think he may have meant this thread title as a joke. I suspect he's more interested in the ski runs opening so late, half a day's drive from him. But he can tell us himself when he returns to his thread. Which may not be until Monday night after the US holiday.

    Yeah, he probably did. Although I do hear people saying things like this all the time who are quite serious.

    I know, they see a late snowfall in Indiana and declare global warming a left-wing conspiracy. Then totally ignore the longest summer heatspells on record, as if they don't count, while only 1 late snowfall for a couple of days does matter, because they think it reinforces their preconceptions & biases.

    And average global temperature rise? What's that? Ice cap melting? If I don't see it in my own backyard, and hear it confirmed on Fox News, it doesn't exist. It's all a plot by those godless scientists and left-wing socialists, because Rush told me so. icon_rolleyes.gif

    It's always fun to see when there's a cold snap or a random late season (or early season) snow-storm and how people say, "well, so much for that global warming!"

    i think it's just our defense mechanism (humour/sarcasm) as a whole against something like climate change.

    just my two cents. i'm pretty sure OP's intent was sarcasm. but in all reality, lots of people do/think this.

    Something similar going on here. Coldest Spring in last 60 years or so.
    It's so depressing.icon_mad.gif

    And that's exactly it. When scientists use the term "Global Warming", they're speaking of the mean temperature of the Earth as a whole. In fact, this warming can and will cause isolated cold increases, but it's all a direct result of the general warming. An unusually heavy snowfall in New York doesn't outweigh the fact that our icecaps are melting and causing our oceans to rise.

    Or the fact that our continents are on a crash course.

    Thanks Art..Yes I meant it tongue in cheek and I DO believe in global warming! Just expressing amazement at snow - even if in the mountains up there - so late, latest I can recall for the Northeast ALTHOUGH "on 6 June 1816, snow fell in Albany, New York, and Dennysville, Maine. Many commented on the phenomenon. Sarah Snell Bryant, of Cummington, Massachusetts, wrote in her diary, “Weather backward.” Samuel Griswold Goodrich said that the summer of 1816 in Connecticut was the coldest of the century.

    At the New Lebanon, New York Church Family of Shakers, Nicholas Bennet wrote in May 1816 that “all was froze” and the hills were "barren like winter." Temperatures went below freezing almost every day in May. The ground froze solid on June 9. On June 12, the Shakers had to re-plant crops destroyed by the cold. On July 7 it was so cold that everything had stopped growing. The Berkshire Hills had frost again on August 23."

    That would be happening even without global warming.

    WOW! That would be major news here in the US. So sad to hear about these deaths in India.

    actually, i think the collapse of earth's magnetic field is more likely

    Hmmm...to your post: "The Year Without a Summer (also known as the Poverty Year, The Summer that Never Was, Year There Was No Summer, and Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death[1]) was 1816, in which severe summer climate abnormalities caused average global temperatures to decrease by 0.4–0.7 °C (0.7–1.3 °F),[2] resulting in major food shortages across the Northern Hemisphere.[3][4] It is believed that the anomaly was caused by a combination of a historic low in solar activity with a volcanic winter event, the latter caused by a succession of major volcanic eruptions capped by the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, in the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia), the largest known eruption in over 1,300 years"
