With reports of Dallas’s first Christmas snow in more than 80 years, and nearly 2/3 of the lower 48 states with ground coverage of the white stuff yesterday, my friend Joe Bastardi at AccuWeather saw his bold-but-responsible forecast from early in the month fulfilled. This is what he told me shortly after I inquired with him on December 6th about the Houston snowfall two days prior:
I have been out since July with a forecast for a cold winter; the coldest since ’02-’03 and the coldest December for the nation since 2000! The set up for this has been in the making for over 2 years. I think this will be the most widespread white Christmas since ’02.
Undoubtedly there is more grumbling at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research — home of the most flawed data and inadequate observing systems that millions of taxpayer dollars can buy — about the “travesty” that this lack of warming presents. You know what I’m talking about: that “sound science” that the global warming alarmists constantly cite. Funny how the for-profit AccuWeather guys are always running circles around the taxpayer-funded buffoons and leftist leeches on this stuff.
Tell ’em again how it works, Phil?
