    It’s kinda’ funny watching those morons out standing in the wind and rain, telling folks to “be smart”! But, this isn’t a storm, and there’s no flooding whatsoever, it’s just a myth spread by Al Gore!

    And you’re full of it. I felt the outer bands of that STORM, although it was 200 miles out, it did damage to our Beaches. We Floridians take such phenomena very seriously because we know what damage it can do. Do yourself a favor, boy: go use the “images” section of your favorite search engine, and search for “Hurricane Andrew”. You will see for yourself what such a “myth” can do as it wiped a whole town RIGHT OFF THE MAP.
    .
    Besides, such “morons” are paid to stand out there. It’s part of their job. So STFU unless you’ve been through one.
    .
    Besides, it’s been dubbed the “Frankenstorm”, not “Stormocaplypse”….

    @Ms. Ima

    It IS a part of Global Rapid Climate Change. There are going to be more and more violent and destructive storms as the climate changes more and more rapidly
    .
    Even worse, this is quite certainly going to happen regardless of just what we as humanity do about it. It is most probably already too late to stop it, but just perhaps if we can get those such as yourself out of the way, we can have do something positive about the affects!!

    But for those non science types such as yourself, perhaps you had better learn to breath better…..underwater!!

    Good luck with that.

    The news-people are strange, but at least they get paid for it. The normal citizens are outright crazy. I saw a guy with a horse-head and swimming-trunks running through the streets. Another one was jogging on the broad-walk wearing a Nicholas costume. One guy was wearing scuba-gear and diving in his street. I have to ask you: are there no mental health professionals available to help these people?

    And then there is the concept of “mandatory evacuation order”. If the President of the United States has to plead with people to please, pretty please, heed these orders there is something wrong with your country. In Germany the discussion would be very short:

    -

    Cop: “You are under mandatory evacuation order”
    Citizen: “I wont go”
    Cop: “You are arrested”

    -

    Is that so complicated? Do it a few times, with camera crews filming it and the rest of the nation will get it. Anything, ANYTHING, to save lives!

    One of these days, I fear we might see the live, on air death, of a reporter doing a live shot during a storm.

    Whatever!! You can’t blame the cycle of weather on people the way you do. This kind of thing has been occuring throughout the ages. Read the stories of the accounts of prior storms dating back through the centuries. We were not causing the issues you speak of in the early 1900’s.

    How likely is it that global warming will trigger abrupt climate change?

    Global warming will increase precipitation, river run-off, melting of the Greenland ice sheet, and melting of polar sea ice, all of which will increase the amount of fresh water flowing into the critical deep-water formation areas by Greenland. In the 2007 IPCC Fourth Assessment Report Summary for Policymakers (PDF File) it states that, based on current model simulations, it is very likely (90-99% confidence) that the meridional overturning circulation (MOC) of the Atlantic Ocean will slow down during the 21st century. It also confirms the scientific consensus that is very unlikely the MOC will undergo a large abrupt transition during this century. Today’s science is such that any long-term assessments of the MOC cannot be made with confidence. A 2012 paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences used computer modeling to show that abrupt climate events in the past occurred as a result of a change in ocean currents due to the Bering Strait closing off because of low sea levels. The Bering Strait is the 50-mile-wide gap that separates Siberia from Alaska. “As long as the Bering Strait remains open,” said lead author Aixue Hu, a climate modeler at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), in a telephone interview posted at Climate Central, “we will not see an abrupt climate event.” With global sea levels rising due to melting icecaps, closure of the Bering Strait is not likely in the forseeable future.

    And if it draws ratings, look for reporters to be put in the path of all sorts of disasters.(Picture a reporter chained to the middle of a runway, in the way of a plane making an emergency landing. Or drama in a forest fire?)

    Oops, just realized that “Nicholas” is better known as “Santa” in the U.S. :-)

    Just wish the darn thing had come further west—we need some of that rain.

    It’s funny how people who have no faith in science don’t seem to have a problem with an invisible, all-knowing supreme being who is everywhere all the time and has created a hell for us, even though he loves all of us.
    Refusal to believe in science does not negate its existence.
    Stupidity is a condition. Ignorance is a choice.

    Irene and now Sandy, perfectly match what the Climate change models have been predicting for some time now, and there’s more to come.


    Which! MItt wants to “privatize” FEMA, or take it away, brilliant move moron! Now as to not FEMA, but “Homeland Security”- be it noted that “W” ADDED THRITY THREE NEW AGENCIES to create “Homeland Security” and “shrink? government”. All the trillions wasted on that growth in “security” is bin Laden’s greatest success, far costlier to our civil rights, and economy than the damage on 9/11. He was smarter than we thunk!

    I think Mitt changed his mind about privitizing FEMA, just like every other issue that he has given an opinion on, he changed it.

    That’s hard for me to do when it’s print,, Canuk. I go by body language & tonal inclanation, which can’t be conveyed well in print.

    Well, it was those Nordics and their pronunciation! ; ) After all, they came here with their tales of “Sinter Klaus”….
