Reno snow plow drivers out in full force to clear the roads

Keith Messina has been plowing roads for the past 18 years, so he has seen his fair share of snow storms and somehow he finds the positive side of it.

"It’s actually pretty calm. It can get pretty hairy at times, but it's peaceful at night. Even when it's snowing, it's very peaceful," said Keith Messina, Reno snow plow driver.

He and his colleagues will be working 12-hour shifts to keep the roads in Reno cleared.

Walking in a ... summer wonderland?

Incredible pictures of 30cm of snowfall at Cardrona Alpine Resort, NZ, could be a summer snow record.

A picture of a snowed-under park bench shared on their Facebook page from earlier this morning shows at least 20cm of snow when it was taken at 8am this morning.

The mountain has incredibly been closed for biking, carting and tubing due to the snow.

Cardrona marketing co-ordinator Matt McIvor said he had never seen snow conditions like this in January.

"This is just a freakish dump," McIvor said. "It's the middle of summer and it feels like the middle of winter.

Sundance Braces for Snow and Chilly Weather on Opening Weekend

Below-freezing temperatures arrive with opening night film 'An Inconvenient Sequel' and could mar the planned Women's March on Main.
Park City is bracing for a slew of snow at Sundance Film Festival.

The festival locale sank to below-freezing temperatures ahead of Thursday's opening-night film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, Al Gore's climate-change follow-up to 2006's An Inconvenient Truth.

Sporadic snowfall is expected throughout the duration of the fest, while temperatures may dip as low as 11 degrees Fahrenheit during the Utah event's first few days, according to the National Weather Service.

SNOW in the SAHARA: World's hottest desert covered in metre thick BLANKET of white

THE red sand of the Sahara has turned white after snow fell on the desert for the second time in a matter of weeks.

Weather Channel Founder: Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ Another ‘Scientific Monstrosity’

The founder of the Weather Channel has predicted that Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel will be another ‘scientific monstrosity’ on a par with his first global warming docu-drama An Inconvenient Truth.

“Thousands of scientists have debunked the horrid science fiction in his first film, An Inconvenient Truth. Gore keeps making billions and mis-educating millions and the media keeps spreading wild science-fiction claims on a daily basis,” said John Coleman, who founded the Weather Channel in 1980.

The film premiered Thursday at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, but is not scheduled for public release until next summer, when the weather is warmer and global warming will seem more plausible.

Load of bollocks: 2016 allegedly ‘hottest year’ by immeasurable 1/100 of a degree – While satellites show ‘pause’ continues

Two satellite datasets agree: The Temperature Pause lives on: ‘No warming for the last 18 years’

MIT climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen on 2016 being called the ‘hottest year’: ‘The hysteria over this issue is truly bizarre’ – Warns of return ‘back to the dark ages’

Dr. David Whitehouse noted the 'temperature pause never went away': 'According to NOAA 2016 was 0.07°F warmer than 2015, which is 0.04°C. Considering the error in the annual temperature is +/- 0.1°C this makes 2016 statistically indistinguishable from 2015, making any claim of a record using NOAA data specious.'

Dr. Lindzen also ridiculed previous ‘hottest year’ claims. “The uncertainty here is tenths of a degree. When someone points to this and says this is the warmest temperature on record, what are they talking about? It’s just nonsense. This is a very tiny change period,” Lindzen said. “If you can adjust temperatures to 2/10ths of a degree, it means it wasn’t certain to 2/10ths of a degree.”

FLASHBACK - Soros Paid Al Gore MILLIONS To Push ‘Aggressive US Action’ On Global Warming

Liberal billionaire George Soros gave former Vice President Al Gore’s environmental group millions of dollars over three years to create a “political space for aggressive U.S. action” on global warming, according to leaked documents.

A document published by DC Leaks shows Soros, a Hungarian-born liberal financier, wanted his nonprofit Open Society Institute (OSI) to do more to support global warming policies in the U.S. That included budgeting $10 million in annual support to Gore’s climate group over three years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The demonization of oil and coal was intended to crush their stock prices, so that Soros could buy them up cheap. Then when the global warming fraud was openly admitted as such, those stocks would soar and Soros would be even richer (and more of a troublemaker) than he was before the scam.

Vatterott fires president after he says he offered homeless student shelter in library from sub-zero temperatures

LIBERTY, Mo. -- He was only trying to be kind to a homeless man.

That, according to the former campus president of a Kansas City trade school, is what led to him being fired, while offering a homeless man shelter from cold weather.

Brian Carroll, campus president at Vatterott College in Kansas City for five years, says one of his students had no place to go. On Friday, January 6th, he allowed a student, who is homeless and schizophrenic, to sleep overnight in the school's library. The school fired him on Monday, January 9th, the next business day.
The recorded overnight temperatures outside Vatterott College on January 6th hit four degrees below zero. Carroll says that student had been sleeping in a wooded area near the school, but temperatures were too harsh that night, and the student had nowhere to seek warmth.

NASA New Discovery Proves Carbon Dioxide Cools Atmosphere

A recent NASA report throws the space agency into conflict with its climatologists after new NASA measurements prove that carbon dioxide acts as a coolant in Earth's atmosphere.

NASA's Langley Research Center has collated data proving that “greenhouse gases” actually block up to 95 percent of harmful solar rays from reaching our planet, thus reducing the heating impact of the sun.

The data was collected by Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry, (or SABER).

SABER monitors infrared emissions from Earth’s upper atmosphere, in particular from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances thought to be playing a key role in the energy balance of air above our planet’s surface.

Closed for winter: Ethereal photos capture famous landmarks around the world after the snow has driven tourists away

As winter sprinkles its white dust over large swathes of the world, locals hunker down while tourists tend to flee in search of warmer regions.

For some popular landmarks, this means a welcome break from the heaving crowds.
Not many would think to explore Rome's ancient Colosseum during the bleak midwinter, for example, but you could say it looks even more magical sitting quietly under a dusting of snow.

When it comes to nature spots - take California's Yosemite, or New Zealand's Tongariro National Park - many are more famed as summer hiking spots, but boast views in winter which are well worth wrapping up for.

And if you've always wanted to wander along the Great Wall of China, but are put off by the steady influx of other tourists, perhaps consider making the trip when the cold weather hits.

Poland, the country hit hardest by the deep freeze, reported two more deaths as havoc spread to many countries across the region. Greece’s navy sent a ship to the island of Lesbos to house some 500 refugees and migrants. A medical association on the island said conditions at the main camp there were “inhuman,” with migrants in tents exposed to freezing temperatures. Rights group Amnesty International urged the European Union and the Greek government to move migrants from the Greek islands to the mainland and launched an online petition. Swaths of Northern and eastern Bulgaria were paralyzed by snowdrifts that blocked roads and left 117 towns and villages without electricity. The main highway linking the capital Sofia with the Black Sea port of Burgas was closed.

BEX ALERT - No 'Pause' in Global Warming: Oceans Heating Up and Sea Levels Rising at Alarming Pace

In the summer of 2015, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration published a scientific paper correcting previous data on ocean temperatures since 1998, suggesting that sea temperatures were almost double the temperatures of previous NOAA findings. Now, the updated research caused an uproar from climate change deniers, who had actively publicized the previous finding as a global warming pause, or climate change hiatus.

The House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, lead by Texas Republican Lamar Smith, filed a subpoena for the NOAA scientist's emails, accusing them of altering data for political ends. Now a new independently produced study confirms that the planet and the sea surfaces is indeed warming, consistent with the controversial NOAA study, and that a pause in global warming did not occur.

In Belgium, one driver was killed when his truck slid off the highway, while in Italy, dozens of homeless people died from the cold, said The Independent (Independent).

Russia has spent the coldest Christmas in the last 120 years, since the thermometers in Moscow during the night showed 30 degrees below zero, and in St. Petersburg, the temperature was minus 24th

Many skiers in Sarajevo remained there because the temperature dropped to minus 27 degrees.

The planes do not fly to Europe several airports, and ferries in ports.
Blizzard on Saturday paralyzed Istanbul - disturbed and navigation in the Bosphorus strait, and canceled several hundred flights.

Confirmation Hearings for Trump's Climate-Denying Cabinet Begin Next Week

Wednesday, January 11th marks the beginning of Senate confirmation hearings for Trump's cabinet nominees from Rex Tillerson, recent former CEO of Exxon for Secretary of State to climate-change denier Scott Pruitt for EPA Administrator and oil-industry darling, ex-Texas Governor Rick Perry for Secretary of Energy. Critics say it could be one of the most fossil-fuel-friendly White House Cabinets in history.

Activists have labelled it the "Climate Denial Cabinet" and on Monday, January 9th has been dubbed the "Day Against Denial."

Georgia Tech Climatologist Chooses 'Career Suicide' to Keep Her 'Scientific Integrity'

Curry is known for her scientifically astute explanations of the uncertainties in climate science. Indeed, she has been attacked as "anti-science" by other researchers who repeat the rote "scientific consensus" that man-made global warming is a catastrophic threat to humanity. In a cruel sort of irony, the universities — ostensibly the bastion of academic freedom — have become unsafe for those who, using good scientific methods, are skeptical of the received wisdom on climate change.

Cal State professor calls for barring Trump’s use of sciences, other technologies, asserts global warming fallacies

Professor of History at California State University Sacramento and Huff Post contributor Joseph A. Palermo came forth last week with a climate change piece in which he managed to bash President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican leadership before managing to defame himself.

In his post titled “Republicans, Climate Change and the New Reality” the liberal professor made it “clear” that the election of Donald Trump as the “45th President of the United States” is a “catastrophe” in which “the country (and the world) seem to be awaiting the consequences” of.

The top 10 most outrageous science hoaxes of 2016

Science hoaxes were running rampant throughout 2016, pushed by the fakestream media (CNN, WashPost, NYT, etc.) alongside complicit government organizations working in collusion with dishonest corporations steeped in scientific fraud (Monsanto, Big Pharma, etc.).

2016 saw more science hoaxes than a typical year, with the media placing special emphasis on the Zika virus terror campaign (rooted in total scientific hucksterism) and more climate change propaganda (all based on fraudulently altered data). In every case, those pushing the science frauds claimed to have a divine monopoly on “science” while declaring all opposing views to be “unscientific.”

In this way, much of the “science” in today’s corrupt society has really become nothing more than a cult of scientism, complete with “faith” in the correctness of socially-reinforced beliefs while exercising instant rejection of evidence that contradicts the fairy tale narratives of the science elite.

Record snowfall in Boise keeps Treasure Valley schools closed, side roads daunting

As of Thursday morning, the National Weather Service measured a record 15 inches on the ground at the NWS office at the Boise Airport, up from 7 inches before the latest wave of snowstorms rolled in.

The previous snow depth record was 13 inches (Dec. 30, 1983 and Dec. 2, 1985). And yes, that’s the record for total snowfall sitting on the ground, any day of the year.

Top 5 failed ‘snow free’ and ‘ice free’ predictions

With the U.S. East Coast blanketed in snow once again, it’s hard to imagine that climate scientists and environmentalists predicted years ago that the “end of snow” was nigh and that the Arctic would soon be “ice-free.”

The U.S. East Coast got pounded by yet another winter storm on Monday that brought to temperatures to a 141-year record low in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. metro area. The rash of cold weather and snowstorms have put environmentalists and climate scientists on the defensive, as they explain that one exceptionally cold and snowy winter does not disprove global warming.

NY Times 1989: no global warming trend

“The study, made by scientists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was published in the current issue of Geophysical Research Letters. It is based on temperature and precipitation readings taken at weather stations around the country from 1895 to 1987.”

Then comes the revisionist stepping-back from the explosive finding:

“Dr. Kirby Hanson, the meteorologist who led the study, said in a telephone interview that the findings concerning the United States do not necessarily ‘cast doubt’ on previous findings of a worldwide trend toward warmer temperatures…He said that the United States occupies only a small percentage of Earth’s surface and that the new findings may be the result of regional variations.”

Obama Seized Enough Land and Water in 8 Years to Cover Texas Three Times

Last week, in one of his final moves out of the Oval Office, Obama executively designated more than 1.5 million acres of land as national monuments, preserving their untouched façade while closing them to human expansion, development, energy use, ranching or state or local jurisdiction.

In a move ignored by the liberal media last week, Obama unilaterally seized more than 1.3 million acres from Utah to establish the Bears Ears Monument, preserving it at the behest of conservationist groups and Native American tribes who claimed the land was sacred. Utah’s state legislature, however, opposed the unilateral land grab across party lines, with many speculating that Obama’s move is the latest in an attempt to limit efforts from incoming President Donald Trump to expand domestic energy production.

Frigid temperatures prompt San Jose to open 4 warming centers

A rare dusting of snow appeared on Mount Hamilton on Monday. While the snow is a treat for some people, the chilly conditions prompted officials in San Jose to open four overnight warming centers.

As the sun set Monday evening, drivers heading up Mount Hamilton Road in San Jose were turned away at Grant Ranch County Park.

CalTrans closed the road to visitors since 3:30 a.m., deeming it a safety hazard after snow began to fall.

“It’s snowing up there,” said Brandon Lee of San Jose. “It's really surprising because I have never heard of snow in the Bay Area before like in this area.”

Chilly weather brings rare dusting of snow to Bay Area peaks

The start of 2017 brought a rare dusting of snow to some locations in the Bay Area.

Rain fell overnight Sunday and the cold temperatures meant snow fell in elevations as low as 1,500 feet.

Our cameras captured white caps on Mount Diablo in Contra Costa County and St. Helena in Napa County.

At noon, it was snowing at Robert Louis Stevenson State Park, on Mt. St. Helena. The parking lot, at 2250 feet elevation, is only about half way up the mountain. That assured that the colder, cloud hidden summit was being pelted by much heavier snow.

The water's all gone-dola! Unusually low tide exposes the unseen side of Venice's canal network

Visitors to Venice are being surprised by the lack of water in the city which has left many of the world-famous gondolas beached on the muddy canal beds.

This is the second year in a row where the city has seen historically low tidal levels.

Instead of water, tourists are being confronted by lines of mud snaking through the city.

I guess the water is hiding at the bottom oi the ocean along with the hidden heat.
