Scientists warned extreme weather events would become much more common as climate change kicks in.. 2012 was the warmest year on record as a result there evaporation and more moisture in the air that comes down as extreme rain and snow. You don't mention the souther tier of the US in your column that has had 70 -80 degrees in January and February. Its only the northern tier of states being hammered with the extreme snow. The drought continues across much of the bread basket of America. Farmers are in a world of hurt. Hay is high because of drought. cattle farmers selling off the stock. Crops failing because of heat and drought. You are fools that listen to fossil fuel funded propaganda.

We have improved the tracking of the storms - we used to just get surprised by them.

And what's your proof that this is anthropogenic?

(Trick question—it's impossible to prove causation.)

This part of North Carolina ALWAYS has 70-degree days in January and February.

Hey, chicken little, cause and effect are best left to astrologers, don't ya' think. And us being fools because we reject the science that was settled before it was settled, and of course 20 years down the road when it's all proven to be a charade, because that's what leftists do, be sure to scan the NYTIMES for a retraction of all their global warming hysterics.

Chicaree, quit believing everything you read. Farmers are fine. They pray for rain when it's dry and curse the rain when it's wet. This has been going on for centuries. 2012 wasn't the warmest year ever. The US isn't the globe. ID10t. Globally, it was one of the coolest this century. And, there is no increase in extreme weather events. There's an increase in news coverage. Crops aren't failing from heat and drought any more than they always have.

Nonsense, we could only get $3.75 a square bale as everyone had plenty of hay. The problem with the global warming chicken littles, is everything is proof of the coming Armageddon. Everything of course except the existence of God.

Ya mean "fossil fuel funded propaganda. " is the cause of the snowstorm hitting the NE? Thanks so much for this intelligent input... chic, this is the kind of logic that a silly twit uses.

part of the problem is we have better means for determining the strength and the "cost" of a storm has dramatically increased because we forgot that old kids song about where the wise and foolish men put their homes.

Blizzard Nemo is bearing down on the Northeast- hence the term nor’easter to describe it- so prepare for the folks at Fashion Week, now being held in New York City, to be out in force battling the storm.

“The organizers of New York's Fashion Week,” reports the CSMonitor,  “a closely watched series of fashion shows held under a big tent – said they will have extra crews to help with snow removal and will turn up the heat and add an extra layer to the venue.”

We can only hope that they wear furs.

Because we’ll need blizzards of hilarity...
