The Snow in Washington

So Republicans are all over the snow in Washington D.C. as proof there is no such thing as global warming.
  • So far there has been only one foot of snow in Toronto all winter. Washington D.C. has had 4.5 feet. The snow has just moved because a warmer Pacific Ocean has shifted the jet stream.
  • The iconic Elfstedentocht, the Super Bowl of Dutch ice skating, is an 11-city, 200 kilometer, one-day race over the Netherland's frozen canals. It has not been run since 1997 because the weather has been too warm and the canals aren't freezing. There is hope that this year there will be enough ice to race.
  • Dogsled races are being canceled in Alaska due to a lack of snow.
  • It is too warm in Vancouver for snow for the Winter Olympics.
When they speak of Global Climate Change they are talking about the entire Earth, not just Sean Hannity's driveway.

It was colder in Dallas Texas (high temps in the mid-30s) on Friday than it was in Juneau Alaska (high temp around 40). Normal for Juneau on the 12th is is what Dallas had. It's been a remarkably warm and dry winter for Juneau. But, who cares about facts if you're a climate change denier.
