The prediction I made on Coast last week about the NE US blizzard was correct.

It is about at the intensity I expected, as well. As long as the jet stream remains unstable, there will continue to be fierce weather across the whole northern hemisphere. The greatest danger is not snow and cold, not yet, although we are obviously receiving a foretaste. The greatest danger is extraordinary heat in the summer, and next summer could be a rough one.

I'm amazed by the number of people here in Tenn. that still think climate change is liberal propaganda.
Last week during one of our abnormally cold days, I overheard someone I know make the statement " so much for global warming". Unfortunatly I hear this alot. Local conservative churches and conservative talk radio still preach that climate change isn't real.
What is it going to take for people to wake up !!

NOVA on PBS tonight (12/28/2010) had an excellent program on the melting of the ice caps. A scientist predicted Planet Earth could experience a severe climate change as early as five years from now and that at the end of the present century Earth will be as warm when the dinosours roamed the globe.
