How are we supposed to take claims of global warming seriously when we are experiencing record-breaking cold?
The mainstream news is reporting record-breaking cold, beating or matching temperatures going back a hundred years. How exactly are we supposed to accept the claims of Al Gore and others that the earth is heading toward catastrophic global warming when the winter record is breaking in precisely the opposite direction? Resorting to “extreme weather” as evidence of global warming is nonsense. It means everything is evidence for what they want to be true. It is an unfalsifiable claim.
AccuWeather.com reports, “Piercing cold blast to feel subzero in central, northeastern US in time for 2018.”
Cold air rivaling that of the past 100 years for late December and early January will make it painful to be outdoors and may lead to damage in the central and northeastern Unites States.
In the coming days, RealFeel temperatures 5 to 20 degrees below zero will be common. In the northern tier, RealFeel temperatures may dip as low as 30 to 40 degrees below zero.
Most low temperature records from the northern and central Plains to the mid-Atlantic and New England are likely to remain in tact.
However, in terms of the level of cold, actual temperatures in many locations will be in the lower 5 percentile for all years on record for late December and early January, according to the National Weather Service.
Standout years for record cold in the Northeast at this point in the season were in 1880-81 and 1917-18. In the Midwest, the years 1967-68 and 1973-74 left a mark with subzero F cold.
