A Bad News Day for the Church of Climatology

Where to begin? Let us start close to home shall we... More than 100 vessels trapped by ice off N.L.

Frank Pinhorn, executive director of the Canadian Sealers Association, said the ice conditions are the most severe he's seen in 25 to 30 years.

As the US of A government is trying to make up its mind regarding the declaration of polar bears being an endangered species compliments of groups like Green Peace... they are asked to Do the Math
"There are in fact more polar bears in the world now than there were 40
years ago. The main threat to polar bears in recent decades has been from
hunting, with estimates as low as 5,000 to 10,000 bears in the 1950s and
1960s. But thanks to conservation efforts, and some cross-border
cooperation among the U.S., Canada and Russia, the best estimate today is
that the polar bear population is 20,000 to 25,000."

Speaking of Washington...Ethanol may cause more smog, deaths: study

Switching from gasoline to ethanol -- touted as a green alternative at the pump -- may create dirtier air, causing slightly more smog-related deaths, a new study says.

Then we have this little unexpected turbulance regarding Hurricanes...
Many researchers believe warming is causing the storms to get stronger, while others aren't so sure. Now, a new study raises the possibility that global warming might even make it harder for hurricanes to form.

Lastly we have the Drought Advisory Committee in Montana canceling its meeting because...
“Due to the wonderful inclement weather and the accumulating moisture levels in Montana today and the wet forecast for tomorrow, we are canceling the Drought Advisory meeting of 19 April,”

Its not nice to mess with Mother Nature...
