Whatever the weather is : cold , hot, wet, dry – it is due to emissions from your SUV – and they predicted it all along. The warming is brutal and unprecedented in North Carolina.

    Tony, figure C showing various coastlines, present, 11,000 ya and 18,000 ya. However they do not show the coastline during the HCO highstand when sea levels were globally over 2 metres higher and CO2 atmospheric concentrations were less than 300 ppm.

    You need to publish a checklist I think:

    How to recognize the signs of Climate Change in your area:

    1] Periods of hot or cold weather.
    2] Floods or droughts.
    3] Increases or decreases in snow fall.
    4] Years with increased or decreased hurricane damage.
    5] Early or late budding of fruit trees.
    6] Extreme winds or lack there of.
    7] Extended or shortened Winters.
    8] Extended or shortened Summers.
    9] Fluctuations in utility bills.
    10] Animals behaving strangely.

    If you checked more than 6 items above, please report your
    findings to NASA / NOAA, as you may be the victim of
    climate change and entitled to subsidies, remunerations
    or be eligible to participate in any number of class action
    lawsuits taking place in your area.

      You forgot

      11] Temperatures remain the same
      12] Snowfall remains the same
      13] Rainfall remains the same
      14] Storms are as usual

      Climate stassis is an ominous sign of Global Warming Climate Change® and is the sneakiest kind of Climate Change® as it can sneak up on you without you even noticing it. We must tax your breath to keep you safe from those things that never change.

    No matter how self-contradictory or nonsensical their report may be, the MSM will distill it down to: ‘Experts confirm that…’.

    99 out of 100 readers will look no further.

      reminds me of this study ranking US cities – http://stories.weather.com/disruptionindex – Climate Disruption Index.

      8. St. Paul, Minnesota Population: 294,873
      St. Paul is the first city on our list to be significantly impacted by extreme future drought. “We expect dry places to get drier, wet places to get wetter,” Easterling said. Extreme precipitation will also likely increase, earning this city spot 8 on the list.

      2. Minneapolis, Minnesota Population: 400,070
      Minneapolis could get pummeled from a lot of different angles, making it number 2 on our list. The city itself will be a good deal hotter than rural places close by. It has seen precipitation increase by almost 40 percent since 1958, a trend expected to continue. Drought here will also continue to worsen.

      Notice the different affect (extreme drought vs a 40% precipitation increase) shown and ranked position. Written and Designed by: Michele Berger, she needs to get out a little more and realize they are called the Twin Cities because they are 8 miles downtown to downtown. I thought CO2 was a global gas affecting ‘Climate’.

      But as Yogi said, them future things are hard to predict.

    I’m old enough to remember when states had a “state meteorologist.”

    Embracing orthodoxy, they changed to a “state climatologist,” abandoning science and relevance.

    Highlands, NC is one of my favorite places in the US. If you get a chance to visit, check out Whitewater Falls (& hike the river at the bottom), Whiteside Mountain, and the Cullasaja River Gorge (especially Dry Falls).

    • Gator says:

      Highlands was wonderful before the citiots discovered it, now you cannot even find a parking spot, and it is on its way to becoming Branson. Last time I was there, I could not get out fast enough.

    • Gamecock says:

      Did it, ~1965. Stayed at a friends cabin with view of Whiteside Mtn. Camped at Whitewater Falls. Being a South Carolinian, I also like Table Rock SP above Pickens.
