United Nations Comprised Of Morons | Real Science
You can’t legislate the weather. You can’t prevent hurricanes. You can’t prevent tornadoes. You can’t prevent droughts. The forces behind bad weather are poorly understood, and unless you understand them, you certainly can’t even begin to consider controlling them.

Atmospheric models are largely useless more than 72 hours in the future. That gives a good feel for how limited human knowledge is.

In 1886, the US was hit by seven hurricanes, including two major hurricanes. CO2 was below 300 PPM at the time. Anyone who says that reducing CO2 will prevent hurricanes is an absolute raging moron (Bloomberg, Cuomo, Figueres, etc.)
Polar bears are distributed throughout their available habitat | polarbearscience
All Arctic sea ice habitats that are currently suitable for polar bears have polar bears living in them 1 – even the southern-most regions of Hudson Bay that are well below the Arctic Circle
Twitter / RyanMaue: These snow totals are amazing ...
These snow totals are amazing for Sierra, Tahoe, and Mt. Shasta. Great start to snowpack season.
US Climate Becoming Much Less Extreme | Real Science
NOAA claims that temperature extremes are increasing, because they are incompetent, dishonest, and using bogus statistics (like including recently added stations.) The current year doesn’t even crack the top 50.
California Extreme Super Flood | Musings from the Chiefio
California gets drenching flood causing rains. 1907 and 1909, then 1955 and 1964 (which I remember), followed by 1986 and 1997.

In 1952 the snow was so deep that a train got stranded and buried in it.
