    Except, of course, that global warming will cause extreme fluctuations in all weather…including blizzards in New England in February.

    Well maybe they just didn’t want to talk about this:

    Perfect example of socialists getting all the government they deserve.

    Maybe someone should explain life’s complex issues to Payne, like well, the meaning of a “STOP” sign?

    Are you being Sarcastic. New England Blizzards are common in February.

    ummm @Kylie2112 is simply stating that a snow storm is not proof that global warming is not a thing as Payne seems to think.

    One hurricane or one blizzard are not abnormal. But when you get several one in a hundred year events in one year, you have to wonder. And only idiots would dismiss them as being meaningless, particularly when climatologists have been predicting extreme weather will become more frequent.

    Wow, it appears ignorance is not bliss. It appears that ignorance leads to tortured denials.

    What Gypsy8 said!
    .
    Think about it. NYC was hit by TWO Hurricanes in the past two years! In 2011 the storm went up the state an absolutely ravaged Schoharie, Ulster, Columbia, Delaware and other counties, it washed away entire towns, towns used to high water given the annual thaw of a winter in the snow belt. Then the storm moved into Vermont. VERMONT! A hurricane trashed Vermont!
    .
    Storm of the century? Likely much longer than that!
    .
    Then the next year, The NEXT YEAR! Hurricane Sandy.
    .
    This snow storm is about energy in the Atlantic. Lots of water evaporating and being sent against the cold air coming down (as it usually does do)
    .
    I’m surprised that this is a record setting snow. I remember much higher snowfall amounts many many times. There was a winter where we were getting 24 inches every few days. I remember having to shovel 4.5 feet off the porch roof. I remember wading through snow up to my midsection (I’m 6’1") from a single snowstorm in the late ‘80-very early ’90s. I remember in the decade between ’87 and ’97 (I don’t remember which year) when it was 10 below for weeks on end. The salt wouldn’t melt the ice on the roads and they had 6" of ice on them (all of them).
    .
    Again, this storm is probably more historic for it’s size than for the snow it dropped in any one location. But then, I’m shocked that 32" is “all time record” snow for Portland, ME.
    .
    The movie “The Perfect Storm” is about a real storm. It was a rarity. Now “Perfect Storms” seem to be more common.

    @ReasonsVentriloquist

    To bad you won’t read this, LOL.

    You have a good point. Still it may be relevant to look at the records:

    And my favorite:

    The climate IS changing. Weather IS different than when I was a child. I lived through a LOT of very bad storms (Florida native and all). However, I do not see how Sandy was all that “extra” ordinary when you look at the history of storms in the NE USA.

    There’s a point at which ignorance is no longer an excuse for running this stupid gag. Come on, man. Read something. Think. This is disgracefully lazy and foolish.
