Over 2000 cold and snow records set in the USA this past week

Compare to 98 high temperature records, and 141 high minimum temperature records

Quite an imbalance in weather records this week. Even the AGU fall meeting in San Francisco where the best and brightest global warming scientists were meeting was surrounded by record (such as 25F in San Jose Dec 9th) and near record setting low temperatures, though the irony was lost on many of them.

See the map:

Low Temp: 606 + Low Max temp 1234 + Snowfall 385 = 2225

In other cold and snowy news, the Egyptian capital of Cairo sees snowfall for the first time in 112 YEARS

Here are some other nearby temperatures for December 9th, the first full day of the AGU Fall Meeting:

The Gore effect.

Mario Lento

They will say, “It’s only weather”. But then call it climate change when it suits their narrative/meme.

You mean this time it’s the MANN effect as MANBEARPIG is hiding this time. ;>)

An Australian ice breaker has just spent three weeks stuck in the antactic, finally broke free.
Guess the Russians are expecting the worst. They are building the most powerful ice breaker ever.

Lol,
Extract,
The Arctic will be granted the highest ice class – 9, meaning the ship will be able to break ice in the Arctic area all year round.

Here in Colorado, the meteorologists are predicting a another wave of extreme cold next weekend, right before Christmas.

Eve

This is feeling like a repeat of 2008, So happy I am not in the US or Canada. It is cooler in the Bahamas also but when cool is a low of 72 F, I am okay with it.

Well, thanks, Eve. I guess. We can dream.
Here in my temporary station in Virginia we have had January weather since Thanksgiving. Not good. Reminds me of 1977.

Meanwhile, Israel is experiencing snow with heavy accumulation and Cairo has had its first snow in over 100 years.
But the cold is either (a) just weather and not climate or (b) exactly as predicted because AGW causes more extremes.

Funny I was thinking around 1975 that was a bad winter here in Alberta.

This is why they invented “extreme weather.”

What effect do icebreakers have on the long term ice? Has constant breaking impacted the ability to keep older ice?

Jenn Oates

I’ve had to scrape ice every morning all week. Brrrrrrrr!

A coworker sent me the LA Times coverage of the mideast snow storm. The comments are not kind to AGW, even though the article didn’t mention it.
http://www.latimes.com/world/worldnow/la-fg-wn-snow-israel-egypt-20131213,0,1691393.story

Thank God that Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) has brought us such a rare event as massive cold and snows everywhere. Perhaps if we pump 1000 more ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere, I we’ll see some snow here in San Diego.

Anoneumouse

Google snow-ified your post’s graphic image when I posted it on G+ Anthony. It’s kinda fun. Feel free to use if you wish, or not. Seasons Greetings! Keep up the awesome work.

It’s snowed in Cairo for the first time in 112 years

JimS

This is just weather you know. If the map showed mostly record highs, it would be called climate change, aka, global warming.
As for the unprecedented cold record temperature in the Antarctic – that was just a regional anomaly; and as for the unprecedented Antarctic record sea ice extent, that was caused by global warming you know – the winds done did it.
Everything is global warming, other than the weather and regional anomalies. (/sarc)

Richard

Snow in Cairo , last time was 112 years ago.

Richard

Oops sorry delete my comment.

sheilaclicks

Quote from letter to editor in this morning’s Gazette-Times, Corvallis, OR :”Because of global warming, this snow storm will be coming more often than every 20 years.” Shows that folks can be persuaded that global warming causes colder weather!

Exactly what solar and ocean cycles would predict.

1975 was bad. I happened to be in St. Louis during those years. 1977 sticks in my mind as the total nightmare.

Its time for Joe Romm and Trenberth to break out their absurd claim that global warming causes more snow.

Here in NE England it is a balmy 11 Celsius, we must have all the worlds AGW. The BBC propaganda machine is in full swing with every hourly news bulletin mentioning the mild weather and gleefully reporting the temperatures, funny they didn’t mention them when they were sub-zero last week.
Still time for a white Christmas though, oops I forgot “Snow will be a very rare and exciting event”

Steve from Rockwood

BTW a first snowfall in Cairo in over 100 years is climate, not weather.

I see others have skunked me on the snow in Cairo.
I wonder why Gore did not announce he was going there.

Eve

I have to thank this site for making me finally do something. I realized that the politians will not stop until everyone in Canada and the nothern US have no money left and die of cold like they are doing in the UK. So I got out of the refrigerator I was living in and moved to a place with a civilized climate.

I wonder why Gore did not announce he was going there.
Because the citizens of Cairo, frightened he might get stuck there, raised a petition.

Since the science is settled that man made global warming causes hotcoldwetdry, theses records are expected.

Yes, and there were no sun spots at about that time 112 years ago. And as I noticed in viewing a TV documentary of Beethoven he wrote that in the summer of 1794 it was oppressively hot in Vienna and there was no ice supply in the city (from the Alps). I immediately turned off the documentary to go look up sun spots around the time of 1794 and it does show a spike around then before the onset of the Dalton. These things just keep popping up at me, for something that supposedly has no correlation to global temps. Perhaps regional temps matter and probabilities of strong winter storm fronts.

“This is feeling like a repeat of 2008, So happy I am not in the US or Canada. It is cooler in the Bahamas also but when cool is a low of 72 F, I am okay with it.”
Wife and I are spending winter in Venice Florida (just south of Sarasota). It’s actually been above normal down here in the main. ONly one or two days in the low 70’s. Nothing wrong with a little restrained schadenfreude….

Resourceguy

So the UN says we must redistribute wealth from the developed countries to less developed in the name of global warming. Once the funds are released no doubt it will be hard to track the actual uses of the funds, such as to purchase heaters and heating fuels for the shivering masses.

HarryO

The sun is waning for the next 20 years or so, best to buy those places in Florida real soon. Big houses going up all over the place down there now….

’77-’78 in SW Virginia was brutal. Even worse in the Ohio Valley.

Perfect timing for Mr. O’bama to go all in on Global Warming. Does anyone take Al Gore seriously ?

Zek202

What per-cent of talks at AGU meeting involve AGW or climate change? Is there any sense of turning of focus? What is the hot topic there?

The world economy/carbon based energy control freaks. a.k.a the “warmers” will boo-hoo this too. No matter what happens, too cold, too hot, to much/little rain, no hurricanes/too many, its all somehow due to Global Warming according to these corrupt and self deluded frauds who come up with BS reasons to explain away the lack of empirical evidence of MMGW. They need some kind of boogeyman to scare the sheeple into accepting wealth redistribution and the control of carbon based energy.

SMC

OMG! Climate change is happening now! We’ve reached the tipping point! We must immediately inject more CFC’s into the atmosphere to reduce the amount of ozone and therefore increase the amount of UV light reaching the earth. We must increase the use of fossil fuels, especially coal, to increase the greenhouse house gas content of the atmosphere. If we don’t do these things immediately, most of the human race will disappear and the last few breeding pairs of humans will be found only at the equator. It will be humanity’s great tragedy and humanity’s fault if we don’t act now to avert certain disaster on a global scale. Please send me truckloads of money and I will develop models and compile data to prove these facts. Act now for the future of our children and all of humanity.
(This should be read with a very heavy dose of tongue-in-cheek sarcasm and amusement… for those of you apt to take this seriously)

but gore, obama and the libs say we are in global warming.
it must be fox and the GOP who is changing the world.
dam you bush.

“…In other cold and snowy news, the Egyptian capital of Cairo sees snowfall for the first time in 112 YEARS…”
That means there have been almost 3 generations of children in Egypt that never knew what snow was.
Unfortunately, it means that Dr. Viner was right (sorta): “…According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”…”
He just didn’t say where this “rare and exciting event” would happen. But now children in Israel and Egypt have experienced a very rare “snow day”. Imagine their joy and wonder…

“[Foreign aid is] what poor people in rich countries pay to the rich people in poor countries.” – Joseph Luns, Netherlands Foreign Minister, 1969.

Here in Israel the most severe snow storm since the 19th century for the month of December (as one of the IMS (Israeli Meteorology Service) said today.
Jerusalem under a 40cm of snow and the upper Gallilee over 50 cm.
Torrential rain all around the country and it seems the main rout in Tel Aviv is about to be closed due to overflow of a tiny stream in its center…
Global Warming is a bitch.

I wonder how many of these yellows and reds are broken records as opposed to just ties. The closest ones to me, in Florida, appear to be mostly ties.

Well… when you put it that way, it sounds absolutely silly. Oh, wait. It has always sounded absolutely silly, and yet most of the world fell for it.

Snow has fallen in Cairo for the first time in 112 years.

Joe Greenwell

I’m tell you all it is because of GLOBAL WARMING that is the drum they have been beating for 20 years now. Good thing we don’t have GLOBAL COOLING we would all roast like a chicken on a bbq spit.

I am from Missouri (where we are expecting a measly 4″ of snow tonight), which is the show-me state. So when Eyal reported 40cm of snow in Jerusalem, I had to see it to believe it. Here it is on a live webcam:
