Water Water Everywhere

  • Lake Michigan's water level has risen 8 inches above the same period a year ago. Once just 6 to 12 inches above all-time lows, lake levels are up in response to the same downpours that caused many area rivers to flood. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which monitors the Great Lakes, predicts the higher levels are to hold through the coming months, though, barring new waves of heavy rains, the biggest rises have probably already occurred. Interconnected Lakes Michigan and Huron are unlikely to change significantly in the next month.

    The corps reports other Great Lakes have experienced increased levels as well, with Lake Superior 16 inches higher than a year ago. The rise in Lake Michigan means the lake has added approximately 3.12 trillion gallons since a year ago.
That's a lot of water. Al Gore has to be overly unhappy about this. And we know he's really unhappy about stories like these that keep popping up:
  • ABNORMALLY COOL ALASKAN SUMMER: ANCHORAGE'S 6TH-CHILLIEST SINCE 1917
For all the environmental wackos reading, measurable "Global Warming" stopped in 2001. NASA said so. It seems a complete lack of sunspot activity has a bigger influence on the ecosystem than carbon emissions. Why is a cop blog writing about this? We're bored and thought we'd share our boredom with the readers. You're welcome.

This shouldn’t surprise you seeing how much the mayor and his hand picked cronies, have filled in the land east of the outer drive over the past 5 years

I hope you are right. The question is, why gamble and use the earth as a "toilet." We need to get off oil NOW. Just read the current issue of National Geographic----Millionaires in Russia due to petro dollars are a dime a dozen. Folks, that is our money going to not a not so democratic country. Let's keep our money here in our country so that we can have full employment and improve our standard of living. The violence you see can be partially explained by terrible unemployment and the steady drum beat of horrific economic news. The Ruskies get rich on our $65.00 fill ups.

If there is any massive global climate change it will result in another Ice Age not Al Gore's heatwave.

It's because I've been doing my part to save the world by recycling my urine. I piss in the lake every time I get the chance. And they say one man can't make a difference.

PS. Fuck you Al Gore. Oh, ahd you too Daley.

Good thing we bought a submarine. Now we can lay some cops off to pay for it and get a few more cameras up. Technology, that's the way you fight crime. Not boots on the ground. Technology.

You see, you want the cameras to capture the crime so the cameras can send the criminal to the cook county courts. That's the way you take care of business. You don't need cops on the ground. They can be replaced.

The next cameras will yell, "I saw that!" Then the criminals will run away, scared. That's how you stop crime.

1977 or so Time Magazine cover- "Coming Ice Age"- talking about the freezing temperatures and predictions of an extended ice age.
For the older generation to remember

If AL GORE wants to do something about Global Warming, he should of done it during his vice-presidency. Cutting down the rainforests during the 1990's wasn't a good idea. Allowing it when you're the vice-president,means that there's Too Many Dummies!

Wow, we got rain this Spring and Alaska has had a cool Summer. Therefore, global warming can't possibly exist. That's good retard logic, SCC. Also, please do not claim NASA as your ally. NASA believes in global warming, liar.

You denigrate this otherwise cool blog when you print dumb crap about global warming. Stick to things you know. And, read some Russian history. Read the part about where millions starved to death because Stalin insisted there were such things as "Socialist Science" and "Socialist Farming." Our world is in peril with the Polar Ice Cap melting (the North Pole may be a navigable waterway for the first time in history this summer) and you spout political "Republican Science." Shame on you, sir. Your epidermis is showing.

Holy What's Up With That Batman!!!

I don't know much about global warming...but the political temperature here is getting hotter in Chicago. Especially with all those gangland style murders. Ex-felons carrying illegal handguns on our streets killing each other and innocents.

Da mayor has gotten a better handle on things now. He's working on more taxing and controls on those out-of-control commercial garbage businesses operating in the city. I hope that includes the human trash too. Nothing attracts mob connections faster than unions, gambling, concrete and waste management.

Who's going to get all those juicy city contracts? The lowest bidders or local democratic political supporters, family members and friends of our very own career politicians.

Where's Billy Daley been doing lately? Isn't he working up a sweat for the governor's office.

THE THAW IS HERE!
Its not too late to invest in GREENLAND! We have many acres of land still available. We have no taxes, ghettos and our liberals are under control(simliar to your country in the 1950s).
And we only allow our skinsheads to goosestep in a 2 mile square reservation.

Never said that asshat. But the preponderance of the evidence is suggesting global warming is a fraud.

That's good retard logic, SCC.

We guess you'd know

Also, please do not claim NASA as your ally. NASA believes in global warming, liar.

click here

We'll quote the relevant portion to you since you seem to be retarded:

The satellites that measure the world's temperature all say that the warming trend ended in 2001, and that the temperature has dropped about 0.6C in the past year

NASA corrupts its own data by using land based readings, but guess who put the satellites up there? NASA. That makes NASA the liars, not us.

click here

Here's something else the lame stream media isn't reporting - the Arctic has over HALF A MILLION MORE SQUARE MILES of sea ice this year. This is unassailable, verifiable, observed FACT. But you spout the party line? You tool.

We won't even go into your non sequitur about failed Russian farming policies - the dustbin of history is filled with Stalin's pronouncements and for the most part, they weren't weather related. After all, we still grow billions of bushels of winter wheat in the upper midwest.

Did you know that Roald Amundsen successfully navigated the Northwest Passage in 1905? That's right - the Arctic was so free of ice that 7 men in a wooden boat traversed the sea in a wooden sailboat 100 years ago. And it was done dozens of times after that.

Did you also know that records of Arctic ice cover have only been kept since 1972? We did.

Our epidermis might be showing, but your ignorance is shining through like a beacon.

Luv your response to "Asshat", who said your theories on global warming are republican science. It's true, but how dare he say that...nice double-speak!

Sorry, not publishing your false statements again. If you read our links you'll see the following:

But since 1999 new evidence has seriously weakened the case that carbon emissions are the main cause of global warming, and by 2007 the evidence was pretty conclusive that carbon played only a minor role and was not the main cause of the recent global warming. As Lord Keynes famously said, "When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?"

Try again
