"Rare 50 year Arctic Blast Sets Sights On Southern California
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA - December 8, 2008 (OWSweather.com) Rare 50 year Arctic Blast Sets Sights On Southern California.
With a week away, and a sure sign of things to come, OWSweather.com is making preparations on the server to handle the traffic from this next event. UJEAS is in line with the majority if not all the other models in keeping a near historical arctic air mass into the Southern California region.
With a warm November, Southern California is finally ready for cold storms to make their way in. Resort level snow will be likely next week, and in pretty hefty amounts if things stay on track. OWSweather.com Meteorologist Kevin Martin predicts a 50 year event. While Martin is usually conservative on these events, the pattern highly favors it. "We are in a pre-1950 type pattern, "said Martin. "We know we are due for a winter storm sometime this year. The type we may be dealing with will be ranked up there with the known years before 1950, which set record low daytime temperatures into the forecast region. With this, may come low elevation snow."
Forecaster Cameron Venable is seeing very cold temperatures in the Los Angeles areas as well. Torrance is not usually known for winter weather, thus making this an interesting event for Venable to track. "Temperatures in Siberia, Russia will be -81 degrees this week, "said Martin. "With those type of temperatures the arctic air mass has to spill somewhere. Our answer of the exact track will become more clear this week. All residents in the mountain communities should prepare this week for very cold, winter weather, with snow."
Global warming, yup.
In comparison, twelve times fewer - just 52 scientists - participated in the much touted IPCC Summary for Policymakers meeting in April 2007. Climate scientists allied with the IPCC were recently caught citing fake data to make the case that global warming is accelerating.
The scam is simple; take something that happens naturally (climate change) and spin it into a crisis, then convince the suckers (you) that they are somehow to blame for it all in order to get them to pay for the "damage" they cause. Never mind that solar fluctuations are the dominant factor in terrestrial temperatures and that water and methane (not blamable on you) are far worse greenhouse gases, simply fund the science that supports the agenda and ONLY the science that supports the agenda, and if need be fudge the numbers by sticking your measuring instruments in unusually warm places (like right next to a trash incinerator). -- Wake the Flock Up
Oh, yeah, and that carbon-capping trading system they want:
The European Union started with the most high-minded of ecological goals: to create a market that would encourage companies to reduce greenhouse gases by making them pay for each ton emitted into the atmosphere. Four years later, the carbon trading system has created a multibillion-euro windfall for some of the continent's biggest polluters, with little or no noticeable benefit to the environment so far."
"It's all snake oil, folks! Al Gore and his cronies have taken something that happens naturally, turned it into a crisis, and forced you to pay for it!" -- Wake the Flock Up
Yup: "Gore said the single most important policy change would be placing a carbon tax on burning oil and coal."
