Here we go again. There is a storm hitting the Northeast. Granted, it’s a bad storm, but it’s just a storm. Since the national media is all based on the East coast, they go into full panic reporting and you get stuff like this:

At Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire, the temperature will plunge to minus 35 degrees Friday night into Saturday, weather observer Taylor Regan said. At last check several days ago, the high temperature on Mars was minus 2 degrees Fahrenheit.
It’s an interesting factoid, I guess, but hardly a unique planetary event. Just talk to the folks in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, etc. who have been seeing these temperatures for a couple of weeks now. It’s almost as if the national media isn’t aware of weather in the rest of the nation…

    Just imagine how cold it would be if we weren’t warming planet!

    We need to keep the next ice age from returning!

    Liberals and their pro-ice age policies! Awful. Just awful.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    There you go again, confusing weather with climate.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    Al Gore just did that with his comment on snow in Sahara….maybe you did not get memo…your cult leader has been treating weather and climate as same thing for a long time now. Sahara comment is latest example.

    When will you take your cult leader to task for doing that?

    Or do you only do that for climate change unbelievers?


  4. Le Roi du Nord


    Sorry, but Gore isn’t my “cult leader”, you are making stuff up again.  Maybe you should look at data from NOAA, NASA, DoD, etc for some real information.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    You dropped your arogant, insufferable, difference betwen “weather” and “climate” awfully fast….is that perhaps you know Al Gore used the snow event (weather) in Sahara to prove climate change?

    When you cult radicals want to use weather to prove climate change there is no diffrence between “weather” and “climate”.

    When climate change unbelievers, like myself, use weather to say how cold it is and why we need more warnming to avoid ice age, then you wwant to arrogantly lecture about a distinction betweeen weather and climate.

    It’s the same perversion when one tries to make a distinction between “sex” and “gender”…total corruption of consistent, rational thought.

  6. Le Roi du Nord


    Sorry, but I didn’t drop anything, it just became pointless to debate the difference with you since you are unwilling to acknowledge the difference.  And there is a big one.  A self-proclaimed smart guy like you could easily find out the difference between weather and climate, but you choose to remain in the dark.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    Read Al Gore’s comment on snow in Sahara.

    He is not making your idiotic distinction.

    Don’t hold rest of us to the standard you don’t hold your cult leader to.

    That’s all I ask.


  8. Le Roi du Nord

    Again, Gore isn’t my “cult leader”.  That is all your fabrication.

    “In the piece referenced in Gore’s tweet, Dr. Michael Mann explains why the bitter cold and snowy conditions gripping the U.S. are “an example of precisely the sort of extreme winter weather we expect because of climate change,” the article says.

    The piece concludes, “So, to the climate change doubters and deniers out there, the unusual weather we’re seeing this winter is in no way evidence against climate change. It is an example of precisely the sort of extreme winter weather we expect because of climate change.” ”

    But it looks like the scientist Gore was referencing does make that distinction.  Try again.

    Sort of like “three 500 year floods” to hit Houston in a year…

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    No little paul, not at all.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    So weather and climate are the same…when you want it to.



  12. Le Roi du Nord


    Nope, those are your words, not mine.  You are a desperate soul, unwilling to admit an error.

  13. Paul

    Sort of like you, liar. Tell us about 500 year floods again, Nazi.

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    No little fella, it isn’t.  I admitted I made a mistake, apologized, AND donated $20 to the Houston Red Cross in your name (Petite Paul).  You on the other hand just keep telling lies about me.   I guess you just need to keep up your reputation.

  15. Paul

    Receipt or it didn’t happen.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    Funny you would want proof of anything, being you have been telling all sorts of lies about me for a long time..   So many hypocrites, so little time……

  17. Owen

    Both of you are ridiculous and this faux macho BS pissing match that y’all have that rolls from post to post makes you both look like idiotic trolls to the rest of us. If you have an actual comment with some substance, then feel free to comment. Otherwise, you aren’t welcome.

  18. Paul

    There’s a general consensus who the troll is. Nitpicking comments. Personal attacks and bullying of a respected small business owner. Trying to lure others into gotcha statements.

    Personally, I give no quarter to bullies.

    Thank you Owen.  First rule of troll control is do not respond.  I have read some even receive some form of sexual gratification when others acknowledge them so try to picture what the other person may be doing reading your post before your pissing match.   Remember, it takes two.

    OR, you could stop taking up screen space and post elsewhere.
