The experts are learning to set their doomsday dates for long after their own anticipated mortality dates.

Probably a good plan. :wink:

In other news: I'm predicting that the world's supply of poutine will be completely mined out and exhausted by the year 2100!!! 8O 8O 8O 8O 8O

Hey...what happened last year? Somebody was sitting on their hands - either Doc or the CBC.

They missed their annual story of the Alberta glaciers melting and OMG we're all gonna die. I was waiting to hear about it.

Just imagine if Doc and the CBC had been around from the tens of thousands of years ago when the glaciers started melting - such ace reporting they could do.

In other bad news for the climate apocalypse believers it looks like 2018 will be the first year on record where there hasn't been even ONE F5 tornado in the entire United States.

Not even one.

All year.

Is this the one that's got your outrage boiling?

Washington Post: 2018 will be the first year with no violent tornadoes in the United States

Grrrr...

Damn that Washington Post and its "fake news.!" Image

Right Tricks? Image

To be honest I'm not even sure I understand what Washington Post guy is actually claiming. He seems to contradict himself in the article.

But Bart's quote does seem to be a more or less accurate paraphrase of both the title of the WaPo article and this from within it:

Quote:
While we still have several days to go in 2018, and some severe weather is likely across the South to close it out, odds favor the country making it the rest of the way without a violent tornado.

If and when that happens, it will be the first time since the modern record began in 1950.

Don't set yourself for some kind of bad karma. The way things are changing and getting weirder it's just as likely to get some kind of mid-winter tornado somewhere that kills fifty people and annihilates two or three Midwestern towns as it is to see a year with them being relatively tame. And lack of killer tornadoes doesn't debunk climate change anyway. If anything the chronic dry air and lack of regular moisture that feeds tornado conditions this past summer and fall in the tornado-prone states is another symptom of climate instability given the breadth and duration of the drought conditions across the US this year. Seeing places that should have reservoirs brimming with water experiencing shortages and lower river/lake levels is way more worrying a sign than more tornadoes or less tornadoes could ever be.

It's -2 on Dec. 28 instead of -35 like it was for the first 10 years I lived here. Hasn't hit the -20s since Nov 2017 and even that was only for a week. It's also the first serious dump of snow today.
There's a meeting next week to plan in case the area burns again for the 3rd summer in a row and I got an email from the real estate agent to reduce the price of our cabin south of here as only TWO sold last summer due to people worrying about fire risks.
No we who can look out our fucking windows and see over the last two decades don't have hate pouring through us, that would be like hating the blind or the mentally challenged. Pity maybe, extreme pity.

Not hate. Just complete disbelief at the strength of the denial.
