That Was a Bit Chilly
- Cold temperatures are being felt throughout the Chicago area as some places saw brief flurries Saturday morning.
Many residents in northern suburbs, such as Villa Park and Wadsworth, awoke to brief flurries - though the snow showers didn't last long as they developed into cold rain. It's the third earliest snowfall ever reported in Chicago, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures began dropping Friday evening and continued to plunge below 50 degrees in many areas.
And speaking of weather, this amused us some more:
- After 35 years of telling us carbon dioxide is melting ice in Antarctica, New Scientist is now saying carbon dioxide has caused the ice to grow for 35 years.
- All that changed this month. On September 17, New Scientist said the ice is growing.
From the article:
Since satellite records began in 1979, the winter maximum sea ice cover around Antarctica has been growing at 1.5 per cent per decade. This year has long been on track for a new annual record, with 150 daily records already set.
The record was finally broken on 15 September and sea ice extent has increased since, according to data from the US National Snow and Ice Data Center analysed by Australia's Bureau of Meteorology in Hobart.Wait a second, for years New Scientist has said the ice is melting at the South Pole due to global warming.
Now it suddenly claims that it has been growing for 35 years?
The data shows it's been growing for 35 years. How about we just all go with this?
And someone bring us the head of Al Gore on a platter..
