Could the DC, Baltimore blizzard eclipse historic snowstorm totals?

***
If 18 inches of snow falls in Washington, D.C., then it would eclipse the "Blizzard of 1996" and the "Snowmageddon Storm" of Feb. 5-6, 2010.

The greatest snowfall for a single-day in Washington, D.C., was 21.0 inches on Jan. 28, 1922, during the "Knickerbocker Storm."
***
If 18 inches of snow falls on Baltimore, then it would tie the top 10 storm from Dec. 18-19, 2009.

The greatest snowfall for a single-day in Baltimore was 23.3 inches on Jan. 28, 1922.

Snowfall records date back to 1884 at Washington, D.C., and 1892 at Baltimore.

Record-breaking or not, the weekend blizzard will prove to be very disruptive over a broad area of the mid-Atlantic and perhaps part of southern New England as well.

Most Global Warming Ever? NASA & NOAA Claim 2015 Was the Hottest Year in Recorded History

We’ve never been closer to carbon taxes, America. It’s coming. You watch. Al Gore and his mini-Gores can feel it in their twinkly little toes.

You know, because the global warming “science” is so settled and all. Now they have just up and proclaimed that, hands down, 2015 wasn’t just hotter than usual because of anthropogenic climate change or the hottest year so far in the 2000s…

Nope, they are saying hottest year in recorded history.

Never mind the fact that “recorded history” involves these people — with a vested interest in an agenda — recording it, people who have already been exposed as rigging it to look hotter than it really is outside…

Polar Bears Survived Periods When The Arctic Had No Ice

Former Vice President Al Gore shocked Americans in “An Inconvenient Truth” when he said polar bears were drowning because global warming was melting Arctic sea ice, but now a new study shows that polar bears did just fine even when there was no ice covering the Arctic.

Scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the University of Alaska, Fairbanks released a study claiming the “stratigraphic record of the last 1.5 [million years] indicates that no marine species’ extinction events occurred despite major climate oscillations,” including periods where the Arctic was completely ice-free in summertime.

“Some species thought to be dependent on summer sea ice (e.g., polar bears) survived through these periods,” write Thomas Cronin of the USGS and Matthew Cronin of the University of Alaska in their new study.

Are Climate Skeptics Too ‘Mentally Ill’ to Buy Guns Under Obama’s New Rules?

The idea that climate skeptics are mentally ill is nothing new:

Oregon-based professor of "sociology and environmental studies" Kari Norgaard has declared climate skepticism a mental illness that must be “treated.”

Psychology Today published an article listing three warning signs that you are in “climate change denial”:

“You think climate change is bad, but not that bad.”
“You don’t have an emotional reaction to climate change.”
“You aren’t getting political.”
Thus, if you don’t think the climate threat is great enough, or you’re not furious about it, or you’re not politically active in the climate fight, then you’ve got mental issues.

Climate change targets 'have huge implications for UK pensioners'

Britain’s biggest carbon polluters stand to lose billions of pounds from tough new climate targets and must come clean with their shareholders about the financial crisis that lies ahead, the country’s biggest pension funds have warned.

A legally binding agreement struck by world leaders in Paris last month, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions dramatically, has huge implications for pensioners, who have billions of pounds invested in “carbon-intensive” companies.

Analysts say that more than three-quarters of the world’s known coal, oil and gas reserves will have to stay in the ground if the planet is to have any chance of meeting the target to limit global warming to between 1.5C and 2C.

Since fossil-fuel companies are largely valued on their reserves, leaving them in the ground threatens to decimate their profits and share prices.

24 days to Al Gore’s ’10 years to save the planet’ and ‘point of no return’ planetary emergency deadline

On January 25th, 2006, while at the Sundance film festival, screening “An Inconvenient Truth”, Al Gore said this as chronicled in an article by CBS News:

Americans have been hearing it for decades, wavering between belief and skepticism that it all may just be a natural part of Earth’s cyclical warming and cooling phases.

And politicians and corporations have been ignoring the issue for decades, to the point that unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return, Gore said.

He sees the situation as “a true planetary emergency.”

Well, the 10 years are about up, by now, warming should have reached “planetary emergency levels” Let’s look at the data:

Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature

We analyze the evolution of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming (AGW) in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, examining 11?944 climate abstracts from 1991–2011 matching the topics 'global climate change' or 'global warming'. We find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6% endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3% were uncertain about the cause of global warming. Among abstracts expressing a position on AGW, 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming. In a second phase of this study, we invited authors to rate their own papers. Compared to abstract ratings, a smaller percentage of self-rated papers expressed no position on AGW (35.5%).
