AGW? Tell that to Calgarians- Two summer snowfalls- Global cooling

from here
Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi says it could take days or weeks to deal with damage caused by the second summer snowstorm to hit Alberta this month.
As most Canadians ease into autumn, residents of southern Alberta are contending with massive power outages, downed tree branches and slippery roads after yet another early blast of winter snow.
The amount of damage has not yet been assessed, Nenshi said, but warned cleanup wasn't going to happen overnight.
"We don't have a sense of it yet, but certainly, depending on the part of the city you're in ... I was shocked at the damage," he said, speaking at the city's emergency operations center.

Contrary to many stereotypes- Canada is not the land of snow and cold- Not usually.
However, the last couple of years have been cooler than usual- quite a bit cooler
There were mornings this summer when we awoke to temps in the mid 50's F
This after the worst winter I can recall in some time...
Frost is expected a month earlier than usual- which has been October, but, now it is being reported as frost in September


Canadians coast-to-coast may have noticed something strange this summer, and now NASA has the pictures to prove it.
Typically blistering hot locations like Southern Ontario have been comparatively cool, with temperatures resting in the comfortable mid-20s, while coastal B.C. has been blistering hot. (Intentional Misrepresentation!) The highest temperature recorded in the country in July was 41.7 Celsius in Ashcroft B.C., according to Environment Canada data.
About Ashcroft BC- It's inland,  not coastal- so why cite the desert in BC as proof of blistering coastal temps? Other then to mislead?
 The Ashcroft area is the driest place in Canada outside of the high arctic, and the only truly arid (desert like)  place in Canada. It has one of the hottest summers in Canada, with a July average daily maximum temperature near 30°C (86°F). Daytime temperatures over 38°C (100°F) are common in mid-summer.
Therefore the 41.7 degree temperature in Ashcroft is perfectly normal for that location
By contrast, Ontario’s hottest day was recorded in the province’s far northwest at Mine Centre Southwest — a small community southeast of Kenora.
  Florida and Georgia have been quite cool this summer and the mountains of Tennessee have “dropped to the winter-like levels

 This weather is very consistent with the last ice age type weather- Very suggestive we are indeed, and have long been in a global cooling trend-

AGW?- We have to accept we just aren't that omnipotent in the universe


  1. If you look at the image in Canada's northern most point around the arctic circle
    the land is cooler then the norm, this makes sense because the ice has expanded in the arctic (as it has in the antarctic) and it is keeping the land cooler then norm

    And yes Arctic ice has expanded for the past couple of years now- The summer was so cool this year that the ice in the North did not shrink like it usually does
    What most people don't realize, is in the Arctic, during the summer, the sun shines for just about 24 hours a day, seven days a week-

    "The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle, when the sun remains visible at the local midnight. Around the summer solstice (approximately June 21 in the north and December 22 in the south) the sun is visible for the full 24 hours, given fair weather. The number of days per year with potential midnight sun increases the farther towards either pole one goes"

    It is that constant sunshine that melts the Arctic ice in the summer- but this year that didn't happen- nor did it happen last year


    Trolls sometimes defame individuals.

    Just as you threatened me with?

  3. Trolls divert online discussions into non-productive, off-topic venues. Pithy put-downs Impugning other's motives Emotional rants Bullying and harassment Completely off-topic posts Posts such as this will be deleted, particularly voluminous quantities of them


    capiche - 1940s slang, from Italian capisci?

  4. did someone troll this thread?

    Penny - glowball Warmistas are like religious fanatics!! They really are!

    While one or two seasonal changes does not a trend make, we haven't had any appreciable warming in 17 years. All the while CO2 levels have continued to rise. If CO2 were the driving force behind the previous 'warming' episodes, then one would expect that temperatures would be rising along with it.

    They aren't and that is the simple truth that these fanatics will not look at.

    The climate changes - it always has. It always will. I have a feeling that the sun might have a little bit to do with it...



    1. Yes, someone did troll the thread Buffy, talking everything but "global warming"
      while cutting me down, threatening to expose me and attacking my grammar

      I should have been wiser- but, got burned :(
      My bad
