    Extreme weather events not new...been around, was here before Moses was.

    Friday November 11

    On this day in 1911, the famous Great Blue Norther weather event occurred. A fierce cold front swept across the Plains causing temperatures to plummet from the middle to upper 70s to below freezing within hours. In Kansas City, it was 76 degree at noon and by 2 a.m. early the next day, the temperatures was 11 degrees. The front also triggered severe storms that produced several tornadoes, including one that caused nine deaths near Janesville, Wisc.

    The deadliest tropical cyclone in modern recorded history hit the coast of East Pakistan, present-day Bangladesh, on November 12, 1970. This Bay of Bengal cyclone – equivalent to a hurricane or typhoon, struck with peak winds of 115 mph. An estimated storm surge of at least 30 feet hit part of the coastline, causing massive destruction while drowning numerous coastal communities. An exact toll isn’t known but it is estimated that up to a half-million people died in this cyclone.

    The Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia erupted on November 13, 1985. Melting a glacier, a lahar or a volcanic triggered flood of water, mud, ash, plumice and rock moving up to 40 mph, rolled down the volcano flank. The Lahar flooded nearby river valleys and buried the town of Armero, Colombia. More than 23,000 people died and several thousand more were injured. Thousands of homes were destroyed.

    yep, these global warming people don't bother to do any research at all...

    Even in my lifetime, I can remember hotter summers than the ones they claim were the hottest. They say the hottest summers have all been in the last 10 years. That's pure bullshet. 1980 was the worst I ever experienced. I read where the National Weather Service is going back in weather history and changing temperature records. People better find their common sense....if they survive the Winter with little gas and oil to heat their homes and rolling blackouts on their electric grids.. ....isn't it sweet to know that no member of Congress will be cold this Winter. It's a crying shame that a Country with the biggest oil reserves and oil fields in the World has to beg other Countries for oil and gas.

    Global temperatures over last 24,000 years

    Global temperatures over last 24,000 years show today's warming 'unprecedented'

    A University of Arizona-led effort to reconstruct Earth's climate since the last ice age, about 24,000 years ago, highlights the main drivers of climate change and how far out of bounds human activity has pushed the climate system.
    The study, published this week in Nature, had three main findings:
    • It verified that the main drivers of climate change since the last ice age are rising greenhouse gas concentrations and the retreat of the ice sheets.
    • It suggests a general warming trend over the last 10,000 years, settling a decade-long debate about whether this period trended warmer or cooler in the paleoclimatology community.
    • The magnitude and rate warming over the last 150 years far surpasses the magnitude and rate of changes over the last 24,000 years.
    "This reconstruction suggests that current temperatures are unprecedented in 24,000 years, and also suggests that the speed of human-caused global warming is faster than anything we've seen in that same time," said Jessica Tierney, a UArizona geosciences associate professor and co-author of the study.
    Tierney, who heads the lab in which this research was conducted, is also known for her contributions to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports and climate briefings for the U.S. Congress.

    Bill, all the so called experts that proclaims extreme weather and climate changes are a result of fossil fuel usage, have one thing in common. They are all Government funded.

    Environmental extremists claim that a consensus of scientists agree that humans arc causing climate change that will cause catastrophic damage to the planet if we do not immediately enact laws and practices to stop it. But those who believe this cannot explain scientific reasons to support it. In
    fact, the science does not support it-not the "human-caused" part, not the catastrophic damage part, and especially not the assertion that most scientists agree with it. The claim that humans are causing catastrophic climate change is a hoax.
    The Climate Change Hoax Argument reveals and discusses the history of the hoax and the science that refutes it. Hundreds of renowned scientists
    from around the world dispute the claims of the IPCC that human-caused climate change is an existential threat to the world. Here are three such statements:
    "[C]urrent alarm over carbon dioxide is mistaken. . . Fears about man made global warming are unwarranted and are not based on good science."
    --Dr. Will Happer Professor at the Department of Physics at Princeton University and Former Director of Energy Research at the Dept. of Energy
    The IPCC's assertion of consensus in support of its AGW claim is "really outrageous and unethical."
    --Dr. Brilliant AL Briggs, climate statistician and Assoc. Editor of Monthly Weather Review
    "worst scientific scandal in ... history .... When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists."
    --Dr. Kiminori Itoh, environmental physical chemist (Japan)
    Environmental extremists insist that fossil fuels are destroying the earth by emitting too much COČ into the atmosphere. But they are wrong. Scientific studies confirm that continued use of fossil fuels is not causing global warming; is not causing rising sea levels; is not causing extreme weather; and is not causing more droughts, floods, wildfires, hurricanes, or tornadoes.
    Science has exposed the climate change hoax.
