Global warming: Is Texas and others in the "sun belt" going to invest in snow plows & sand/salt spreaders?
I was stuck on I-20 for 18 hours over Christmas eve/day. Since global warming is causing so much snow and ice down there, then it would seem logical for the sun belt states to buy the equipment. Evidently freezing rain, a deadly road hazard, is happening more often in the sun belt as well. hence the need for salt/sand spreaders. ***It's amazing what this global warming causes.***

FIRST unlike the Al Gore DRONES, whose usual response to ANY question starts with calling you a MORON.... let us dig a little deeper
First they tried to promote an ICE AGE DISASTER in 1970's. GOOGLE IT... the history IS available with google search... and google deeper and you will discover this HAS been going on for as long as there has been "newspapers".... ICE AGE... HEATWAVE...ICE AGE...HEATWAVE... you CAN track it back for at LEAST 100 years.
But then when the NORMAL CYCLICAL oscillations of: El Nino, La Nina, the PDO (a decadal oscillation of the pacific) the Atlantic Oscillation combined with an ABNORMALLY HIGH solar activity period in the 1990's and a period of higher VOLCANIC activities, caused a period of RISING temps, the ICE AGE SCARE was replaced with a HEAT WAVE SCARE.
FOLLOW THE MONEY to find out WHY. Al Gore has made MILLIONS of $$ perpetrating the HOAX. IF you dig into the MONEY path you will also discover supposed "scientists" who are ALSO MAKING MILLIONS $$$$$ for supposed "research",
but when you dig INTO that research you find that they are:
1.) routinely WITHHOLDING the actual DATA !! WHAT are they HIDING ?
2.) routinely CHANGING historical WEATHER DATA to make their hoax LOOK REAL.
3.) routinely using FLAWED computer models. CASE IN POINT: The source code of their MODEL was analyzed and the MODEL uses a "fudge-factor" method to LEVEL OUT average temps. The factor used is 5% +/- actual temp. >> this 5% number FAR EXCEEDS the 1/2 of ONE DEGREE change which the IPCC says our temp has RISEN.
In simple terms the MODEL can NOT be more ACCURATE than the LEAST accurate numbers utilized. If you consider a 72 degree average temp, the MINIMUM increase for which their model COULD be USEFULL would be a new temp rising from 72 to 76.
it is MATH my friends.... the RULES are RULES. Statistical Analysis says if your baseline has a 5% variable your results MUST also have that same variable and can NOT track or predict ANY deviation LESS than that 5%.
Another REAL INCONVENIENT TRUTH:
while carbon emissions have continued to RISE after 2000.... especially from countries OUTSIDE the USA
the global TEMP has been FALLING for YEARS. Come on think about it... This last summer 3000 RECORD LOW TEMPS were reported in ONE MONTH. Remember those nice COOL nites all summer long ?? Remember how COLD it was last winter ??
BUT if carbon dioxide was truly a "greenhouse warming gas" and the concentration has continued to RISE (as it HAS risen... supposedly) how can the temp NOT also be rising FASTER & FASTER ??
before you LEAP to a climate change panic... do a little research... this is NOT the first time it has snowed in Texas.... not the first time it has been COLD in florida.... I can remember SEVERAL "freezes" ruining citrus trees in Fla & Tx.... going back DECADES....
and HEAT... like the DUSTBOWL era....perhaps they still teach it in schools... the 1930's when it was ABNORMALLY hot & dry... and once again the papers were predicting the END of THE WORLD
believe NOTHING you see on NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC
while you still CAN google the REAL INFORMATION (Congress IS trying to CHANGE THAT to HIDE the truth from you) fire up the NET and LOOK at ALL the arguements... for & against
and beware there ARE laws working their way thru CONGRESS which would ELIMINATE your ability to LEARN and RESEARCH online

The Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia in Britain is one of four places in the world where global temperature data sets are compiled. Someone (apparently an insider) hacked into the CRU's computer system, and on Friday posted online 1,079 emails and 72 documents. Dr. Phil Jones, the director of the CRU, has said the emails appear to be genuine.
Dr. Jones and his global warming alarmist colleagues have a fundamental problem: The planet hasn't warmed since 1998, and -- according to satellite measurements -- has cooled significantly in the last two years.
The emails indicate how they dealt with it:
The scientists, when faced with a Freedom of Information Act request for their correspondence and data, delete the correspondence and data lest it be used against them.
The scientists fabricate data when their data fails to prove the earth is warming.
Nov. 16, 1999, Dr. Jones told three other scientists: "I've just completed Mike's Nature trick of adding in the real temps for each series for the last 20 years (i.e., from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline."
"Where the heck is global warming?" asked Kevin Trenberth, head of the Climate Analysis section of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado, of Prof. Mann Oct. 12. "We are asking that here in Boulder where we have broken records the last two days for the coldest days on record...The fact is

Heloooo. Have you thought about Winter? Let me try to explain, Global Warming will not end winter, even if we try, we can't make the planet earth stop revolving around the sun. Meaning: There will still be winter OK. 2nd Global Warming, Climate, Weather, Climate Change, are related, but not the same thing. Weather is the short term state of the atmosphere at a specific time and place, including the temperature, humidity, cloud cover, precipitation, wind, etc. Weather is short term atmospheric conditions, like right now, where I live, the weather is Rainy Global Warming is an increase in the average temperature of the earth's atmosphere, especially a sustained increase that causes climatic changes You see, Global Warming and Climate Change, Cause & Effect? Climate is the temperature, humidity, precipitation, winds, radiation, and other meteorological conditions characteristic of a locality or region over an extended period of time. Climate change.....well... a change in the temperature, humidity, precipitation, winds, radiation, and other meteorological conditions characteristic of a locality or region over an extended period of time. So now you understand the difference between them right? You mentioned weather, not climate Global warming could very well cause more snowfall, it causes more rainfall it just needs to be cold so that the rain becomes snow, and since it's winter, it's cold, and that rain is gonna come down as snow. Get It? There's no way you didn't get it

Gotta love the people who say Scientists this & that. Do they even know one? With credibility? In the field? Not on the dole?
Science told us there were 9 planets in the Solar System.
Now back to 9 and an Ice-Ball.
Our Solar System changed 3 times in the span of a year. Now that's evolution on steroids.
Science = Flip-Flop Flip-Flop Flip-Flop Flip-Flop
They are GUESSING. (follow the money trail ... you'll find the perpetrators)

Snow plows? sand & salt spreaders?
I was told with global warming that in the sun belt areas, it would be so hot that living conditions wouldn't exist.

This global warming is a mess, 19degrees forcasted for central Florida tonight in the areas away
from the gulf. So bring your swim trunks and overcoats,

Probably not and there is no real evidence that "Global Warming" is causing ice storms. There have been ice storms in the south for many years.

They can sell 'em to Europe when fresh water from the melted Arctic ice shuts down the Gulf Stream and starts a deep freeze there. What cons fail to realize, due to limited mental capacity, is that rising global average temperatures can cause cooler average temps in some locations as well as scorching heat in others, due to changes in the jet stream and ocean currents.

Gore is an idiot.......like he can determine that it isn't the galaxy causing global anything..........somehow man is responsible for the entire solar system.....lol...he's power hungry......the entire galaxy existed before he was born and I'm sure it will after he is gone .....lol....Source(s): besides untill science admits that dinosaur farts contributed to global warming billions of years ago then I don't want to hear about cows and dogs.....lol

They could just borrow those things from northern states. Winter has been kind of mild for us so far this year.
