…SENSIBLE WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS…
LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN/SNOW IN THE WEST WILL TRANSLATE EASTWARD
AND INCREASE IN COVERAGE AS THE SYSTEM DEVELOPS ALONG THE NORTHERN
GULF COAST SAT/D4 INTO THE SOUTHEAST SUN/D5. A WELL-DEFINED SYSTEM
SHOULD MOVE UP ALONG THE COAST AND THEN EXIT NORTHEASTWARD INTO
THE CANADIAN MARITIMES MON/D6 AND WELL INTO ATLANTIC CANADA BY
TUE/D7. PRECIPITATION COULD BE ROBUST… OR COULD BE NEXT TO
NOTHING…FOR SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND.
Global warming skeptic buries Sierra Club director under avalanche of facts [VIDEO]
Marc Morano, a global warming skeptic and the editor of ClimateDepot.com, fought the climate sob stories peddled by Sierra Club Director Michael Brune with cold, hard facts on CNN Tuesday night.
“‘Global weirding’ is nothing more than a pseudoscience expression,” he said on Don Lemon’s “11th Hour,” pushing back against Lemon’s contention that the “extreme” cold weather wracking much of the country is a symptom of climate change.
“So record cold is now evidence of man-made global warming,” Morano said sarcastically. “What evidence would disprove climate change? It seems that no matter the weather, everything that happens proves it.”
And then the Warmener goes right on to prove that point.
1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
190 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 6.2N 130.7E TO 9.8N 121.5E
WITHIN THE NEXT 06 TO 24 HOURS. AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY
ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNINGS AT THIS TIME.
WINDS IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO BE 18 TO 23 KNOTS. METSAT
IMAGERY AT 111530Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED
NEAR 6.8N 129.9E. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING NORTHWESTWARD AT 19 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 5.0N
136.8E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 6.8N 129.9E, APPROXIMATELY 473 NM EAST OF
ZAMBOANGA, PHILIPPINES. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS
A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) ASSOCIATED WITH
FLARING DEEP CONVECTION. AN 111231Z METOP-A 89 GHZ IMAGE INDICATES A
PARTIALLY EXPOSED LLCC WITH THE BULK OF THE DEEP CONVECTION SHEARED
OFF TO THE WESTERN QUADRANTS OF THE SYSTEM. AN 111231Z ASCAT
IMAGE SHOWS AN ELONGATED CIRCULATION WITH 20 KNOT WINDS WITH SOME
ISOLATED 25 KNOT WINDS OVER THE NORTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE. UPPER-LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES LOW (5 TO 10 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND GOOD
RADIAL OUTFLOW. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 18
TO 23 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1003
MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL
CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS HIGH. THIS SUPERSEDES REF A.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY
I’ve NEVER met ANYBODY like the Salvation Army in a major disaster zone and I’ve been in THREE. They’re the first in, the last to leave and they work their asses off 24/7 to help EVERY SINGLE SOUL IN NEED, it doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, orange, green, purple, gay, bi, straight or zombie. They want YOU taken care of as best they can and they do it.
UPDATE: While I can get online, let me first thanks Bingster for posting this, but please, please let me add my fervent appeal for your donations to go to the Salvation Army. We have unfortunately gotten to see all the aid agencies in action. The Salvation Army has impressed us tremendously with their selflessness and dedication to people’s immediate needs and their continuing ones. They were literally a Godsend after Ivan and stuck around through thick and thin for months afterwards. For everybody. Feeding people, clothing them, sheltering them, holding hands, getting answers. If you need it, they’re there if there’s anyway on earth possible for them to be.
Not to mention the fact, they have the infrastructure, knowledge and well-oiled disaster relief machines to do it. With the ADDED BONUS that EVERY DOLLAR YOU SEND FOR THAT DISASTER GOES to RELIEF IN THAT DISASTER. Not like the predatious Red Cross (and other “relief organizations”), who reserve the right to use those dollars where “they see the need”, like headquarters, salaries and jaunts.
Oh, I am HOT.
ths update: Wow. She actually paid attention to my tweets in reply defending the Salvation Army. And learned something. How really nice. (And I MEAN that in the NICEST way possible.)
@treehuggingsis I appreciate u informing me of this. I deleted the tweet, though greater message was simply 2 give back. I hope every1 does.
Usagi, which oddly enough means “bunny”, is splitting the gap between Taiwan and the Philippines with 165 mph winds. It is headed straight towards Hong Kong but should weaken to a mere 120 mph little fluffy thing by the time it comes ashore. Batten down them thar hatches!
I should also point out for those who have daughters similar in age to mine that “Usagi” is Sailor Moon’s first name so that you can truly appreciate the potential scope of this disaster.
ANDREA IS RAPIDLY LOSING TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS. MOST OF THE RAIN
IS NOW DISPLACED TO THE NORTHWESTERN SEMICIRCLE…AND THERE IS AN
INTRUSION OF DRY AIR BETWEEN THE CENTER AND A CONVECTIVE BAND TO
THE EAST. BUOY AND RADAR DATA STILL SUPPORTS AN INITIAL INTENSITY
OF 40 KNOTS….BUT THESE WINDS ARE OCCURRING OVER WATER IN THE
EASTERN SEMICIRCLE. ANDREA IS ALREADY EMBEDDED IN THE MID-LATITUDE
WESTERLIES AND THE TRANSFORMATION PROCESS INTO A POST-
TROPICAL/EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TODAY.
