Boston has like 100 inches of snow.  Calamity in Atlanta with just a few inches...

World leaders decided in Copenhagen that global warming should be limited to 2 degrees Celsius. Achieving that target, though, would take nothing less than a miracle. With another round of climate negotiations approaching, it is becoming increasingly clear that mankind has failed to address its most daunting problem.

Humans are full of contradictions, including the urge to destroy things they love. Like our planet. Take Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Like everyone living Down Under, he's extremely proud of his country's wonder of the world, the Great Barrier Reef. At the same time, though, Abbott believes that burning coal is "good for humanity," even though it produces greenhouse gases that ultimately make our world's oceans warmer, stormier and more acidic. In recent years, Australia has exported more coal than any other country in the world. And the reef, the largest living organism on the planet, is dying. Half of the corals that make up the reef are, in fact, already dead.

Obama's admin is shutting down coal and gas fired power plants in the US.  Energy costs are spiraling out of control. 

Where is all that coal from Australia going?

FACT CHECKING AT THE WAPO ... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Ted Cruz’s claim that there has been ‘zero’ global warming in 17 years

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/wp/2015/03/26/ted-cruzs-claim-that-there-has-been-zero-global-warming-in-17-years/

Quote
“Many of the alarmists on global warming, they’ve got a problem because the science doesn’t back them up. In particular, satellite data demonstrate for the last 17 years, there’s been zero warming.”
–Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex,), “Late Night with Seth Meyers” interview, March 17, 2015

“The last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming. Contrary to all the theories that – that they are expounding, there should have been warming over the last 15 years. It hasn’t happened.”
–Cruz, CNN interview released Feb. 20, 2014

The Global warming alarmists are so desperate and so out to get Cruz they come back with the following ...

Quote
In response to criticisms that Cruz only looked at satellite data, Novack also sent us other tables using various data points. The global temperatures data set looks like this:

The bottom graph is the relevant one here. The red and blue lines are two versions of satellite data. The black line is the weather balloon data. The green line is the actual surface level data. From 1998 to 2012, the last year in that data set, the red satellite data found a decrease in temperatures, at -0.043 degrees centigrade per decade. The rest found modest growth, ranging from 0.061 degrees to 0.072 degrees centigrade per decade.

HUH ... The rest found modest growth, ranging from 0.061 degrees to 0.072 degrees centigrade per decade. MODEST GROWTH? Who honestly thinks 0.061 degrees to 0.072 degrees centigrade per decade is a modest growth? I would call it an infinitesimal growth.

Even if this were true, which is probably not seeing that they have so skewed the data and cherry picked it, that would mean that in 100 years the temperate would go up 1/2 a degree.

WOW ... and Obama calls Global warming a greater threat than ISIS.
