It's not global warming--- because it isn't a global trend. Europe's exceptional (once in a generation) cold this winter more than offset our balmy conditions in the northeast.

The Climate Prediction Center says otherwise. 2011 had one of the warmest average temperatures for globally. This thread is now off-topic. All data is on the site there.

I was being somewhat fascetious, not trying to go off-topic, sorry....

My honest opinion is the science of GW is correct, but it's somewhat exagerrated and climate is more complex than simply that. Really not sure regarding this year, again my honest thought is that it's a combination of it being "naturally unusually warm" with perhaps some GW enhancement. But things like Europe this year (and us last year) show again that it's more complex than it's made out to the public.

One question I always ask is...
  • WHAT TIME FRAME???
The Planet is 6 Billion years old so what time frame is the debate about? Past 10 years? Past 100 years? 1000 years? 1 year??
In the Past 11 years we been cooling because 1998 was the peak warmest globally and we have not been warmer since. Past 100 year absolutely 100% warming.


The other question I ask is:
  • Are they using Surface and Ocean air temps? or just surface??
2 Extremely important questions.

So if anyone brings up the topic, ask them those 2 questions and it usually silences the other party or provides an interesting debate.

And my favorite saying "It's GLOBAL...not LOCAL".

Its a great topic to discuss but like you said..It's "Off" here. So no further from me on it.

How can global-warming on the weather thread be OT? It's weather-related.

Very nice. Should last a week or 2 up there. So the Euro and NAM model were pretty close with the snow totals huh? Actually I think NAM had 15" there so maybe it was off.

In terms of “balmy conditions in the Northeast”….this is not first mild winter here and I doubt it will be the last.

The normals are just an average of the extremes. When you look at where we are geographically (lower middle latitudes, facing a warm ocean)…anything can happen in the cold season when the jet stream goes above and below us. Winter is an unstable time for us - sometimes warm, sometimes cold, snow, no snow…etc. The reason our summer season is much more stable, is that storm tracks retreat northward into Canada, the Bermuda High builds in, and the weather is more sun controlled.

Next winter I might have to spend in Miami...because I know nature will even the score - lol.
