Don’t laugh guys. The AGW crowd is saying just that. Warmer temps over the oceans => more moisture in the air => more snow on land. They can cook the climate models for whatever results they want. You can’t win.

Mel, I know that it didn’t look like it with all the sigh-in windows popping up everywhere, but your comment went thru the first time. And don’t let them impose their global warming religion on you.

They changed it to “climate change” since “global warming” didn’t fit all the weather anomalies. (that have been happening since the beginning of time)

Every time one of these stories post, the ignorance of those that do not understand science shines bright. (and doesn’t even know how to avoid multiple posts either, just another indicator of intelligence level/technological know how)

We need to do something about man-made global warming immediately or the weather will continue to get colder.

This is really not that unusual in Tucson. It happened one other time in the last 5 years or so. It is the altitude there that makes the difference.

Before people go all “global warming” about Arizona, I’ve lived here for 35 years and this is VERY typical. Yes, it occasionally snows in the outskits of Phoenix. It’s how we can put up with the 155 degree summers.

The sky is falling…….global warming; the oceans are getting colder……global warming; the oceans are getting warmer……global warming; CO2 is rising…..global warming; CO2 is falling….global warming; more snow….global warming; less snow….global warming; more hurricanes….global warming; less hurricanes….global warming; See any trends? any conceivable situation…global warming is the culprit. Conditioned thinking for those who cannot think for themselves and look at the data (that hasn’t been faked, modified or destroyed by the very “so called” scientists that cooked all of this up to keep their finding going.

Well thank god we have highly intelligent people like you to insult us morons and save us from ourselves!!! Please elaborate on how technological know how helps one better grasp the Global Warming & Climate Change theory. While your at please prove without a shadow of a doubt that the changes in climate we are experiencing are a ONLY a direct result the use of fossile fuel. Did seem to bother Mr. Gore when lined his pockets with oil money from Al-Jazeera?

I cant speak for Global Warming becuase i dont know all the facts yet, but i will say we have seen an increase in “Bad” storms and natural diseasters. More earthquakes, more Blizzards, Bad Tropical storms, tidal waves, Etc.

Seems mother nature is bad at us.
(if you disagree, give me facts, not insults.)

The ‘warmers’ told us years ago that “snow would be a thing of the past”, now they are changing the story to, “Well, actually, there will be more snow”.

Hmmmm… yeeeeeeah.

MetalHead8… as life-long surfer, I have STUDIED the weather on a daily basis for over 35 years, and I ASSURE you that we are not have more of anything, especially tropical storms and tidal waves. WTH would the climate have to do with an ocean-bottom earthquake anyway? You see folks, this is one of those people that just refuses to think past what Brian Williams and Chris Mathews tells him… a prime example of sheeple.

Number of weather related incidents increasing? I don’t see that. What we are seeing is orders of magnitude more reporting of those events when they do occur. The effect is used by casino operators to give the appearance slot machines are paying off.

Umm….what happened to Global Warming? Remember? Snow was supposed to be a thing of the past…
