What do the global warming alarmists think about their conference being canceled due to snow?

It's pretty funny and i'd love to hear the Al Gore believers' excuse on this one.

Update:

I love it, the global warming nuts are calling me names. They're so angry about this cause it makes their theories bunk.

    Well let me tell you something I am not going to spend the time calling you this that insulting you instead I will attempt to prove to you that global warming is real. Not through opinion or news articles, but instead through science! I have taken it from a report I have done a few semesters ago. Please do not plagiarize.

    The atmosphere acts as somewhat of a “selectively” permeable membrane due to its thin layer; in other words the atmosphere is penetrable by a quantity of solar radiation. The atmosphere is composed of nitrogen (78.084%), oxygen (20.946%), argon (0.9340%), carbon dioxide (381 parts per million by volume), neon (18.18 ppmv), helium (5.24 ppmv), methane (1.745 ppmv), krypton (1.14 ppmv), and hydrogen (0.55 ppmv).

    The sun emits a variety of solar radiation that spans the spectrum of wavelengths. Visible light is between 400nm and to 700nm, infrared radiation between 700nm to 1nm, and ultra violet rays (UV) is between 500nm to 700nm. Basic quantum physics law states that energy of these wavelengths is the result of multiplying Pluck’s constant, h= 6.624 10-34joule-sec by the frequency (v) thus E = h v (frequency is established by multiplying the speed of light, c, by the wavelength, λ). So by mathematically utilizing these equations one can deduce that the shorter the wavelength (λ) the more energy the wavelength contains. Iinfrared radiation, ultra violet rays and visible light are among the shortest of wavelengths.

    The atmosphere, in particular the stratosphere which contains the ozone layer repels most solar radiation by reacting with ozone (O3) yielding O2 + O, or simply O3 + UV => O2 + O (this will be discussed in detail later on). But visible light does not fully cooperate with the atmosphere; some visible light does penetrates the atmosphere as due to its enormous energy capacity. This visible light is necessary for life on earth because the dynamics of any ecosystem depend on the process of cycling of nutrients and the flow of energy. Now what happens to the solar radiation, the energy? The first law of thermodynamics, the conservation of energy principle takes control it states that energy can be changed from one state (liquid, solid, gas) to another but it cannot be created nor destroyed and as Albert Einstein proved, energy and matter, are connected ( the atomic bomb being a prime example of this connection).

    A vast majority of the solar radiation is then used to accommodate photosynthesis by earth’s plant population (this is the change of state), carbon dioxide + water + light energy => glucose + oxygen + water; these results are an absolute necessity to maintain life on this planet. The remaining sunlight (solar radiation) is remitted into the atmosphere and at this stage is where the problem begins. A common misconception is that CO2 is the problem but this is not so CO2 as mentioned previously is also required for photosynthesis (not to mention plant respiration). The real problem of course is the increasing amount of carbon dioxide; many figures on the interent shows an increasing amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is a green house gas, meaning that it does not allow heat to escape, therefore the solar radiation which was emitted, or reflected by the ocean must pass through this barrier of increasing carbon dioxide (in the troposphere).

    Carbon dioxide consists of a carbon atom and two oxygen atoms covalently bonded. Quantum physics dictates that solar radiation heat is not permitted to be absorbed by a molecule unless it is vibrating asymmetrically. In order for the molecule to be vibrating asymmetrically the molecule must contain three atoms. As mentioned previously the atmosphere is composed of nitrogen (N2), oxygen (O2), argon (Ar), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne), helium (He), methane (CH4), krypton (Kr), and hydrogen (H2). This leaves us with two molecules that contain three atoms: methane and carbon dioxide, being the more abundant molecule (and growing). There was once a balance, the oceans would regulate the amount of carbon dioxide, by reacting to the carbon dioxide to yield carbonic acid (CO2 + H2O => H2CO3 ) but with increasing amounts of CO2 the rate of carbon dioxide conversion is slow in comparison to carbon dioxide production. Therefore, increasing amounts of carbon dioxide results in warmer global temperatures.

    Peace

    Ive noticed yahoo answers poltical arena has become a battle ground between democrates and conservatives. Why waste your time calling each other this that blah blah why not use reason, facts, investigation, science to make a statement. Remember "Wise men speak because they have something to say: Fools because they have to say something" Plato

    i comprehend that there has been no elevation in temperatures provided that 1998. Now does worldwide warming exist? of direction it does. that's a organic phenomenon via fact the Earth does not stay at a relentless temperature, yet fluctuates via time. it is been lots warmer interior the previous as evidenced via the actuality that Greenland grew to become into as quickly as with out ice. it gets warmer and it will grow to be cooler. Now does man made worldwide warming exist? No....They scream, cry and whine that CO2 is raising the temperatures yet have you ever considered a medical study that exhibits a given quantity of CO2 will enhance temperature a definite style of tiers? No, via fact it does not. as quickly as I see a study that exhibits an instant correlation between CO2 tiers and temperature elevation i'd evaluate the subject as valid. there is none. bear in mind the medical technique quite says you may start up with a theory and function the skill to attempt it for validity and then try it as quickly as back to ascertain if the outcomes would be reproduced (basically positioned). No the man made worldwide warming is yet a hoax from the environmental wingnuts. Oh confident and do not forget to apply your "particular" mild bulbs (that incorporate mercury) to wrestle that carbon footprint all you evironmental heathens are leaving on mom earth!

    Why, it must be the new ice age those same liberal 'scientists' predicted back in the '70s, Nyuk! Al Gore~NYUUUK! Global warming~NYUUUK! New ice age~NYUUUK! Hmmm. What's next? New volcano age? Earthquake 'season'? Too much daylight in daylight savings time? El Nino put on Ritalin?

    Poor alarmists. Too scared to have a snowball fight? lol

    Sorry bunch of schit for brains idiots.

    You do NOT have a clue dumbass,

    Global warming does cause places in the world to freeze. If you would educate yourself you would already know that Global Warming is when the polar ice caps melt and this flow changes the oceans current that bring up warm Caribbean water to the northern hemisphere. So actually some places are going to get a lot colder.

    Please read a book dumbass

    Source(s): Are you really that frigg'in stupid? No wonder this country is falling apart. God do I hate retarded idiots like you.......just read something.....maybe a book!!!!!!

    You would think these idiots would learn to have their conferences in the summer when its HOT not when places are having record snow fall. Of course they will just blame the snow on global warming too so its a win-win situation for them. Don't you just love their science.

    POOR AL GORE. HIS HAS DONE IT AGAIN. EXAGGERATED THE TRUTH. HE SEEMS TO BE VERY GOOD AT THAT. HE SAID THAT HE GREW UP IN TENNESSEE, WHEN HE ACTUALLY WAS A SON OF A SENATOR AND LIVED MOST OF HIS LIFE IN WASHINGTON D.C..

    HE SAID THAT HE WAS AGAINST TOBACCO AND HOW HE HELD THE HAND OF HIS SISTER WHO DIED FROM CIGARETTES. WELL HIS FATHER GREW TOBACCO ON HIS FARM IN TENNESSEE.
