Martin Armstrong Slams Al Gore's Deliberate Global Warming Fraud To Increase Governmental Power

There was this core group of people who seemed to enjoy all the attention they were gathering by predicting the end of civilization caused by humans. As the temperatures began to warm, suddenly they had to switch the dire forecasts from global cooling caused by humans to global warming caused by humans.

Al Gore came to the rescue. Global cooling meant that government should stockpile food for everyone, but that would cost money. Switching to global warming would create a different agenda that they were familiar with. Like smoking, they could tax it to HELP people. Of course, when they did stop and tax revenues began to decline, they introduced taxes on e-cigarettes and didn’t try to deter people from smoking.

Search for Shackleton's Antarctic Shipwreck Turns Back to Avoid Deadly Ice Trap

Worsening weather and nearly impenetrable sea ice have forced a research ship to abandon its search for the 1915 wreck of Ernest Shackleton's ice-bound ship Endurance in Antarctica's Weddell Sea.

The inclement weather and heavy ice also caused the loss of one of two autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that had spent several days searching for the wreck on the seafloor. The AUVs were transported by the South African polar research ship Agulhas II.

The expedition team announced today (Feb. 14) that they had abandoned the search for the wreck and the Agulhas II was now returning northward, to the edge of the Weddell Sea, to avoid being trapped.

Trump Demands Gavin Newsom Return $3.5 Billion for Canceled Bullet Train; Newsom: It’s ‘California’s Money’ Now

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive.

“California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

What Early Spring? It's Snowing in Hawaii — and for the First Time Ever at One State Park!

Despite Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction for an early spring, winter isn’t letting go of its hold just yet — in fact, it’s setting records … in Hawaii.

A major winter storm that began rolling in over the weekend has forced many state parks across the islands to close, the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources reported in a Facebook post on Sunday.

Notably, the DLNR wrote, “For perhaps the first time ever, snow has fallen in a Hawaii State Park,” explaining that Polipoli State Park on the island of Maui is “blanketed with snow.”

McConnell Says Senate Will Vote On Ocasio-Cortez's "Green New Deal"

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just lobbed what we imagine will be the first of many stink bombs into the 2020 Democratic primary.

During a news conference on Tuesday where he was flanked by fellow Senate Republican, McConnell revealed that he plans to call a vote on the Green New Deal bill proposed by NYC Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, a plan that, as we have noted, is filled with extreme proposals like rebuilding every building in the US, and weaning the US off all carbon-based forms of energy within 10 years.

While the plan doesn't have a prayer of passing in the Republican majority Senate, McConnell's intentions should be clear to any avid follower of US politics. Now that no fewer than five Democratic Senators have announced their 2020 campaigns, McConnell is going to force them to make a choice with potentially major consequences down the line:

Winter storm bears down on upper Midwest and Northeast, cancelling 2,000 flights and leaving at least 100,000 without power

A major winter storm is moving from the upper Midwest into the Northeast, causing significant travel impacts and the possibility of power disruptions.

On Tuesday morning, the leading edge of the storm hit New York City, where two to four inches of snow are forecast before the storm turns into a messy mix of ice and rain around midday.

'The potential exists for 6 to 12 inches of snow from northern Wisconsin to northern Michigan, and even higher amounts across upstate New York and northern New England with 12 to 18 inches possible,' the National Weather Service said in a flash bulletin on Tuesday.

Moscow’s strongest snowstorm in 140 years delights locals

A historic snow blizzard has brought a white winter back to the Russian capital with social networks being deluged with idyllic picture postcard views
A heavy storm hit Moscow during night, covering the city’s streets with an impressive 11mm (0.43 inches) of snow, becoming the strongest in 140 years, a leading meteorologist told local media.

Knee-tall snow banks are typical for the Russian capital in February but the latest storm really caught the imagination of locals for its speed and intensity. After a string of warm days the Muscovites were brought back to the Ice Age as piles of snow emerged literally overnight.

Are the Democrats Bent on Suicide?

After reading an especially radical platform agreed upon by the British Labor Party, one Tory wag described it as “the longest suicide note in history.”

The phrase comes to mind on reading of the resolution calling for a Green New Deal, advanced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and endorsed by at least five of the major Democratic candidates for president.

The Green New Deal is designed to recall the halcyon days of the 1930s, when, so the story goes, FDR came to Washington to enact the historic reforms that rescued America from the Great Depression.

Only that story is more than a small myth.

Trump cites massive winter storm to mock global warming

President Trump in an early morning tweet on Sunday suggested global warming could be helpful as a massive snowstorm dropped several inches of snow and sent temperatures plunging across the Midwest and swaths of the Northeast United States.

"Be careful and try staying in your house," Trump advised. "Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold. Amazing how big this system is. Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!"

Green New Deal Would Kill Almost Everyone, Warns Greenpeace Co-Founder

The “Green New Deal” proposed by congressional Democrats is a “recipe for mass suicide” and the “most ridiculous scenario I ever heard,” Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore (shown) warned in an exclusive interview with The New American. In fact, Dr. Moore warned that if the “completely preposterous” prescriptions in the scheme were actually implemented, Americans could be forced to turn to cannibalism to avoid starvation — and they still would not survive. Other experts such as Craig Rucker, the executive director of the environmental group Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), also sounded the alarm about the “green” proposal in Congress, comparing it to Soviet five-year plans and calling it a “prescription for disaster.”

Behar and McCain Clash in ‘Hissy Fit’ Over Democrat Amy Klobuchar’s Candidacy

ABC News’ “The View” co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain clashed awkwardly during a Monday segment in which they discussed Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-Minn.) presidential bid — and Behar even accused McCain of throwing a “hissy fit.”

Klobuchar (shown above center) officially launched her 2020 presidential campaign on Sunday.

She formally made her announcement outside during a snow storm.

But Klobuchar found herself engulfed in controversy last week when reports portraying her as a temperamental and hostile employer circulated.

President Donald Trump took note of Klobuchar’s entry into the crowded Democratic field.

He tweeted on Sunday, “Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for president, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a snowman(woman)!”

FLASHBACK - Trump's Right About California's Fires: It Wasn't Climate Change; Two New California Laws Prove It

The facts are clear: California’s deadliest year of wildfires has been decades in the making, with overlapping environmental rules, both state and federal, making fuel load reductions in forests and coastal chaparral nearly impossible, while hostility towards commercial timber harvesting has allowed a massive build up in tree density and brush with a concurrent reduction of access roads and firebreaks.

Yet in spite of blaming climate change and attacking President Trump for suggesting bad environmental policies made California’s fires worse, California’s outgoing governor, Jerry Brown, quietly signed two bills to correct the worst of the state’s fire management policy missteps, proving Trump was right all along.

Winter weather wreaks havoc across county

Snow and ice shut down Haleakala National Park’s Summit District on Sunday, while downpours and strong winds took down power lines and trees, and high surf pushed boats ashore in West and South Maui.

The wintry conditions were brought on by a powerful storm tracking southward toward the Hawaiian Islands, bringing a band of enhanced moisture and predictions of up to 3 inches of snow on the summit of Haleakala, the National Weather Service said.

Shortly after noon on Sunday, the Summit District was closed due to snowy and icy road conditions, as well as power outages throughout the district, park spokesperson Nancy Stimson said. The closure was scheduled to remain in effect through at least 9 a.m. today, and today’s sunrise viewing was also canceled. Maui County officials also warned the public not to drive toward the summit.

Hawaii recorded what may be the lowest elevation snow in state history

Snow falls in Hawaii a few times a year in winter on the state's highest peak, Mauna Kea rising 13,803 elevation in feet, but the white stuff is rarely seen at elevations below 9,000 feet to 10,000 feet.

On Sunday, Maui's 10,ooo-foot Haleakala received a thick dusting and snow also accumulated at 6,200 feet in Polipoli State Recreation Area.

Officials at the Department of Land and Natural Resources say this could mark the lowest-elevation snowfall ever recorded in the state.

No time to dig out! MORE snow is predicted for the Pacific Northwest as parts lay buried beneath over a foot of the white stuff

Pacific Northwest residents who are more accustomed to rain than snow are digging out from a winter storm and bracing for more.

The sun was out on Sunday morning but the National Weather Service says snow will return late in the afternoon into the evening across the Northwest.

Snowfall amounts will range from an inch to 3 inches (2.5 centimeters to 7.6 centimeters) through Sunday night, on top of the foot that has already accumulated over the weekend in some areas.

Some cities within the region are expected to see as much as three feet of total accumulation through Tuesday, before multiple winter systems pass over the area.

Ocasio-Cortez Bungled Green New Deal’s Release. Her Staff Took Its Webpage Offline

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kicked off Thursday unveiling her highly-anticipated “Green New Deal” resolution to cheers from Democrats and environmentalists, but by the day’s end, her staff was forced to take a gaffe-riddled summary of the bill offline.

Ocasio-Cortez gave NPR the scoop. Her office provided NPR the Green New Deal resolution and its accompanying FAQ document that laid out its goals, namely to “[m]ove America to 100% clean and renewable energy” within 10 years.

What immediately became clear, however, was that the legislative language didn’t match with Ocasio-Cortez’s FAQ, especially when it came to nuclear power, welfare programs and “farting cows.”

“Frankly, it does a disservice to the debate,” Jeremy Harrell, policy director at ClearPath, a conservative group that promotes low-emissions energy, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Snowstorm snarls evening commute; Gov. Inslee declares State of Emergency

For the second time in a week, snow was falling across the Puget Sound region, only this time it's a bit stronger of a storm, and it's hitting the Friday evening commute hard.

Snow began falling in the Seattle-Tacoma-Everett corridor just after 12:30 p.m. with snowfall rates set to increase during the afternoon to 1-2 inches per hour, making travel treacherous throughout the entire Puget Sound region and in some cases, doubling or tripling typical travel times for commuters.

Gov. Jay Inslee declared a State of Emergency across the state to deal with the impacts from the winter storm. "Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," Inslee wrote in the proclamation. "I encourage everyone to stay off the roads if possible and plan ahead if you must travel."

Delingpole: Green New Deal Is a Revamped Communist Manifesto

A few years ago at the height of the global warming scare I wrote a book which set out to answer one of the key questions of our time: if climate change isn’t really a problem why do so many people act as though it is?
The answer, I discovered, is that environmentalism is just a fashionable mask for the usual leftist obsessions with state control and wealth redistribution.

That’s why I called the book Watermelons: green on the outside, red on the inside.

Not everyone who believes in man-made climate change is a full on Commie. Some are merely useful idiots. But whatever reason people may have for supporting the scam – greed, stupidity, virtue-signalling, idiot leftist teachers – the net result is the same: bigger government, higher taxes, more regulation, lower standards of living. Exactly like you’d get under communism, in fact.

So color me completely unshocked by the Green New Deal. It looks like a revamped Communist Manifesto because that’s exactly what it is.

Green New Deal: ‘Upgrade or Replace Every Building in U.S.’ Within 10 Years

Progressive Democrats will call for every building in the United States to be upgraded or replaced as part of its soon-to-be-unveiled “Green New Deal,” an outline of the proposal reads.

In a press conference Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) will detail their ten-year plan to tackle “climate change,” which they claim would require the elimination “pollution and greenhouse gas emissions” to meet “100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.”

The plan calls for the “national mobilization” of the economy through 14 “infrastructure and industrial” projects. To meet the country’s power demands through “clean and renewable energy sources,” an FAQ says the country will need to “upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”

Nancy Pelosi Slights Green New Deal: ‘Green Dream or Whatever’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday mocked the “New Green Deal” just hours before its outline was unveiled — the latest example of the Democrat Party’s widening split between establishment lawmakers and its progressive wing on how to tackle “climate change.”

Democrats including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are calling for a Green New Deal intended to transform the United States economy to combat climate change and create thousands of jobs in renewable energy.

The freshman lawmaker and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) are teaming up on the plan, which aims to eliminate all carbon emissions in U.S. energy production by 2030. A joint resolution drafted by Ocasio-Cortez and Markey sets a goal to meet “100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources,” including dramatic increases in wind and solar power.

When your 4x4 off-road vehicle fails you in the fierce Russian winter, and even a tractor can’t pull you out, you may still hope for a miracle to happen – at least if you’re in Saratov, where this viral video was shot.

Uploaded to social media, the footage shows a camel trying to pull the car out of snow on a dual-carriage road. The animal, controlled by its cameleer, succeeds at the third attempt as cheering voices are heard in the background. At the end of the video a tractor is seen on the roadside standing still – apparently after failing to dig out the car.

AOC And Broken Clocks. Right Twice A Day

“The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

That was not one of the two times she was right. What amazes me is the number of trendy people who suffered through 45 degree below zero temperatures (-42.8 C) and still are listening to Al Gore and the 20 plus Democrats running for President. We are entering the Eddy Grand Solar Minimum in 2019 so we ought to see lots of Global Freezing for at least the next 20 years and possibly the next 40 to 60 years. Voters will soon rebel at paying higher taxes to subsidize obvious idiots and grafters even some of AOC’s 2.46 million Twitter followers will see the light.

Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post and his fact checker awarded 4 Pinnochios for AOC’s claim that $21 trillion had gone missing from the Pentagon and HUD from 1998 to 2015. Bezos is a CIA business partner through his computing services so you might expect him to side with the Deep State.

2018 was the 4th hottest year on record, NASA says

Surface temperatures on the planet in 2018 were the fourth hottest since 1880. NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) crunched the numbers.

“2018 is yet again an extremely warm year on top of a long-term global warming trend,” said Gavin Schmidt, the director at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

“The impacts of long-term global warming are already being felt — in coastal flooding, heat waves, intense precipitation and ecosystem change.”

Rare Snowfall Creates Winter Wonderland On Bay Area Peaks

Some wild and unusually cold weather on Monday night was turning many Bay Area peaks white as a rare snowfall hit the region.

The latest storm system accompanied by a blast of frosty Canadian air found snow falling Mount Diablo, Mount St. Helena and Mount Hamilton earlier in the day. By nightfall, measurable snow was dusting trees in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The chilly weather also lead to widespread hailstorms across the Bay Area, with reports of hail in San Francisco, the North Bay and several parts of the East Bay.

What's Your Winter Damage? And How to Fix It

With the winter season winding down, it’s time to take stock of what kind of damage the weather may have inflicted on your home.

Winter Storm Jonas dropped record snow on several states in January, but that’s not the only kind of winter weather that can wreak havoc on a home. Everything from high winds to freezing temperatures can have some kind of impact on your roof, pipes and more.

Home Winterizing Checklist

As cold weather approaches, it is important to take a few preventative measures to protect your home through the chilly months. Winterizing is generally a task that can be done relatively inexpensively, but will make a big difference in how comfortable your home is, and could end up saving you money on energy bills, too. In fact, many very effective home weatherproofing jobs are something that homeowners can complete without professional help.

Easy Home Weatherproofing

Some small weatherproofing jobs require little to no “handiness”, but can make a real difference once cold weather hits. By doing these things before the snow flies, you’ll be saving yourself some hassle (and possibly some money, too!):

Before, during, and after: dealing with a power outage on a chilly winter day

A wintertime power outage can be a pretty frigid affair. Whether a storm damages your power lines or they’re blown down by harsh winter winds, there’s no telling how long it’ll take for the power to come back on. Take a little time now to learn what you can do before, during, and after a power outage to keep your family safe and warm until the lights (and heat) return.

Governor Brown is at it again. In the works is another new, monstrous tax. A new $600 million dollar per year tax to grow even larger in subsequent years. (Quick calculation: that is $150 per year for each man woman and child in Oregon) It will be sold as a “Cap and Trade” carbon tax.

A straight tax on Carbon would apply across the board to all emissions and could come with an offsetting check back to the public who for paying higher prices because of the tax. No such luck here. The administration would pass out the carbon limits to individual companies and tax them for any excess over the limits. In effect decide who pays how much, which is expected to be $600 million the first year. It could be a repeat of the Energy Tax Credits disaster but on steroids and the taxpayer would pay through the nose, again.

Talking About the Weather

It is cold in the Midwest, so cold that Rachel Maddow already ascribed it to evil Putin (“Russia will freeze you and your family to death.”) It is extremely cold in England, too. I’d think this frost spell should put paid to the silly notion of Global Warming. But no, the adepts of Al Gore sect are not so easily dissuaded. Like the Flat Earth Society, they are impervious to arguments. These enlightened people keep struggling against global warming.

They decided to overturn Mark Twain’s adage Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it – and do something. There is a new popular hero, a pleasantly old-fashioned-looking 16-year old Swedish girl with braids, Greta Thunberg, who had sat down in a snowdrift and said she wouldn’t budge until somebody would do something against global warming. She has led a school kids demo for the same purpose, and the European MSM is rapturous.

50 Photos That Show Just How Insanely Cold It Is In America Right Now

Extreme weather events are becoming more and more common, with records shattered down under during Australia's recent heatwave, and now, at the opposite end of the spectrum, the 'polar vortex' bearing down on Midwestern U.S.

The polar vortex is a band of strong winds, high up in the atmosphere that keeps bitterly cold air locked around the Arctic region. Sometimes, like this year, it can drift further south than usual and envelop highly populated areas of North America. Chigaco has been particularly hard hit, with its notoriously windy location on Lake Michigan bringing wind-chill temperatures down to record-breaking lows.

With much of the Midwest on lockdown and people urged to stay indoors, some people have been braving the plunging temperatures to take incredible images of the effects that the vortex is having on their daily lives. From exploding toilets to icy hairstyles, this list compiled by Bored Panda will give you chills just from looking at it!

New Jersey Nuclear Reactor Shut Down By Polar Vortex

After the Arctic polar vortex brought temperatures in parts of Canada to record lows that, in some places, rivaled the temperatures on the surface of Mars (not to mention leaving nine people dead), the infamous Arctic air has notched another milestone: It has shut down a nuclear reactor due to an extremely rare phenomenon called 'frazil ice'.

Never heard of frazil ice? Neither had we.

According to Bloomberg, Public Service Enterprise Group, shut a reactor early Thursday at unit at its Salem nuclear plant in southern New Jersey after screens on its intake froze over, restricting the flow of water needed to cool off the reactor, according to spokesman Joe Delmar.

A second unit at a station on the Delaware river was temporarily closed for the same reason.

Thirteen dead after historic deep freeze blasts the Midwest and record-breaking -30F temperatures linger as the cold snap moves into the Northeast, causing travel chaos with 2,300 canceled flights

The deadly polar vortex that paralyzed the U.S. Midwest has killed at least 13 people and left tens of millions of Americans shivering for a second day as temperatures plunged to record-breaking lows and the cold snap moved over towards the East Coast.

The painfully cold weather system that put much of the Midwest into a historic deep freeze lingered on Thursday and continued to break historic records with parts of Illinois and Iowa recording temperatures of -38F and -30F respectively.

The frigid conditions canceled more than 2,300 flights and over 1,500 delays on Thursday, while the number of deaths blamed on the cold climbed to 13.

Drivers stranded for 12 hours as heavy snow hit Cornwall

Drivers were stranded for 12 and a half hours, a bus carrying 26 school children was rescued and hundreds of cars were abandoned on Thursday night as heavy snow hit Cornwall.

Six inches of snow reportedly fell in 45 minutes, causing travel disruption on the A30 and A39 near Bodmin, Cornwall.

A school bus which became stuck on the A39 was rescued by local police and fire brigade crews, who ferried the children to safety in 4x4s.

Travellers warned of more extreme cold weather amid heavy snow

The big freeze will continue over the weekend, with the Met Office warning of the coldest night of the winter as snow caused further transport disruption.

Scotland could see lows of minus 16C (3.2F) over Saturday night into Sunday as the cold snap continues, the Met Office said.

A low of minus 15.4C (4.3F) was recorded just before midnight on Thursday at Braemar in the Scottish Highlands.

It is set to be less chilly over Friday night and into Saturday morning – with temperatures around minus 7C (19.4F) or minus 8C (17.6F) – but likely to dip right back down again by Saturday evening.

Winter storm means big business for snow removal companies

Cars, homes and driveways were covered in several inches of snow on Friday.

For some, the work is just too much and they depend on professionals to clear it out of the way.

Most people complain about snow, but for workers with shovels that means big business for them.

Derek Johnson, owner of Glory to Glory Landscaping and More, knows this first hand.

“They call it white gold. Money falling from the sky. You can't, it don’t get no better than this winter snow if you have the equipment,” said Johnson.

Johnson and his crew took on a massive project at this Columbus apartment complex.

It will take hours more to get each driveway cleared.

If You Are Warm Right Now, Thank Capitalism

Last night the temperature fell 3 degrees an hour. As I write this, it is negative 10 degrees outside. A “once in a generation” polar vortex has swept into the American Midwest from the Arctic.

I am lucky to be alive. It would take me just a couple of hours to die from hypothermia if I were outside in such weather. But I am not just alive, I am comfortable. It is a balmy 73 degrees in my home. I am relaxing by my gas fireplace that gives off a warm heat as gentle flames dance about and please my eye. I can hear the gentle whir of fans blowing heat around my living room, generated by my furnace. I write this on my comfortable sofa with a computer on my lap powered by electricity and fed information via the Internet, itself powered by electricity and glass-fiber conduits that carry information to me from computers and minds from across the earth.

BEX ALERT - A third of Himalayan ice cap doomed, finds report

At least a third of the huge ice fields in Asia’s towering mountain chain are doomed to melt due to climate change, according to a landmark report, with serious consequences for almost 2 billion people.

Even if carbon emissions are dramatically and rapidly cut and succeed in limiting global warming to 1.5C, 36% of the glaciers along in the Hindu Kush and Himalaya range will have gone by 2100. If emissions are not cut, the loss soars to two-thirds, the report found.

The glaciers are a critical water store for the 250 million people who live in the Hindu Kush-Himalaya (HKH) region, and 1.65 billion people rely on the great rivers that flow from the peaks into India, Pakistan, China and other nations.

Winter Is Wreaking Havoc On Electric Vehicles

If there’s one thing electric vehicle owners are learning, it is that extremely cold temperatures are likely going to lead to frustration if they don’t take extra special care of their battery powered vehicles. Look at it as just another added benefit to "saving the world".

As we push through the cold that automakers are using as an excuse for poor sales this winter, customers of some companies – notably Tesla – are starting to realize that things are a little bit different with electric vehicles in the winter. Disgruntled owners of Model 3s have been widespread on social media and online forums, talking about numerous issues they’ve had with cold weather on their vehicles. People have complained about battery range draining and Model 3 door handles freezing up.

Terence Corcoran: CBC admits it wrongly reported hyped-up insurance 'climate risks'

The Insurance Bureau of Canada’s decades-long campaign to raise alarms about the ravages of floods continued last week with an appearance by Blair Feltmate, a favourite star climate-change witness for the biggest insurers, at the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority’s annual meeting. Feltmate heads the industry-funded Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at Waterloo University, which claims climate change has triggered a surge in flood events in recent years. As Feltmate put it during his comments at the meeting: “The elephant in the room, from a climate-change perspective, is… too much water in the wrong places.”

Not quite. The real elephant sharing the room with Feltmate turned out to be a detailed report from Guy Gendron, a CBC/Radio Canada International ombudsman, outlining how such distorted flood claims led the news network to publish stories last fall that contained “inaccurate and irrelevant” information.

The Polar Vortex Might Be Causing 'Frost Quakes' in Chicago

It might be cold enough in Chicago right now to make the ground shake.

Local news station WGN reported today (Jan. 30) that its viewers had heard "frost quakes" in the city overnight. And though the reports in Chicago are still unconfirmed, frost quakes are indeed a real thing.

Frost quakes, or "cryoseisms," occur when water trapped underground freezes suddenly as the temperature drops, causing it to expand. (Water expands as it freezes.) All that rapidly expanding water underground can split rocks and put stress on the soil, causing loud booms. Frost quakes are fairly rare events and difficult to positively identify. A huge blast that shook northwest Calgary, Canada, in 2014 was widely attributed to a loud cryoseism, but researchers never confirmed that as the cause. [9 Tips for Exercising in Winter Weather]

Hell freezes over: At least 12 people die as temperatures as low as -42F wreak havoc across the Midwest with more than 2,500 flights cancelled, postal services halted and hitting a Michigan town named Hell

The deadly arctic deep freeze wreaking havoc across the United States has left at least 12 people dead with record-breaking low temperatures halting postal services in the Midwest and cancelling more than 2,600 flights.

Two people died in Detroit, Michigan after temperatures started plummeting late Tuesday as forecasters issued grave warnings that one of the coldest spells in history would be life-threatening.

Police found a man's body across the street from his home in the Detroit area on Wednesday. He was not wearing a hat or gloves and wasn't dressed for below-zero temperatures. A 70-year-old man was also found dead in Detroit in front of a neighbor's home on Wednesday.

University of Iowa student, Gerald Belz, 18, was found outside an academic building around 3am Wednesday. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Record Cold Forces Rethink on Global Warming

Headlines around the world are reporting exceptionally frigid conditions and unusually high levels of snowfall in recent weeks. They tout these events as records, but few people understand how short the record actually is -- usually less than 50 years, a mere instant in Earth’s 4.6-billion year history. The reality is that, when viewed in a wider context, there is nothing unusual about current weather patterns.

Despite this fact, the media -- directly, indirectly, or by inference -- often attribute the current weather to global warming. Yes, they now call it climate change. But that is because activists realized, around 2004, that the warming predicted by the computer models on which the scare is based was not actually happening. Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels continued to increase, but the temperature stopped increasing. So, the evidence no longer fit the theory. English biologist Thomas Huxley commented on this dilemma over a century ago:
