    Water absorbs 2260 Kj/Kg of heat from the sun and evaporates. The water vapor blows over the land and freezes into snow. This dumps 2260 Kj/Kg plus 330 Kj/Kg into the air and leaves snow on the ground. The ground gets colder, the air gets warmer.

    The air gets warmer than what?

    The air was 5 degress this morning when I went out to shovel the snow.

    BTW - do you actually know what "2260 Kj/Kg plus 330 Kj/Kg" means?

    Or is it just cut and paste?

    Global warming proponents have said that as the globe warms the weather will become more extreme ... hotter, colder, wetter some places and more arid in other places. So, don't laugh just yet.

    That claim was not what they originally proposed. That claim is what they came back with when their original claims were debunked by studies done by other scientists.
    Here is a good link that explains the global warming people.

    For targus who probably forgot much more than he ever knew:

    kj/kg = kilojoules per kilogram.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joule

    >The air gets warmer than what?

    The air gets warmer than it would have been if it had not snowed.

    Targus forgot the old saying about the weather warming up so it could snow.

    My question was to discover if you actually know what you are talking about - as opposed to cut and paste.

    So it's the snow that is causing the global warming - very interesting. :tonofbricks:

    Al Gore would say ANYTHING. If it gets too cold then it's global warming. If it's too hot then its global warming. If it's raining rabbits than it's global warming!

    Can anyone tell where where on the planet it is currently much warmer than average?

    How soon you conveniently forget. They said no such thing. They've only changed their tune after their original predictions were wrong.

    And then there were some emails that showed some fraud with the way the science was compiled.

    • We've got the rampant 'climategate' emails...
    • We've got the ridiculous, stupid, circular reasoning by Gorebots..."If it's warmer, it's global warming. If it's cooler, it's global warming. Heck...the weather's not the same as yesterday, so now it's 'climate change.' Give us your money so we can go buy a poor country."
    • We've got many (honest) scientists who keep asking, "Hey, folks...you realize that the sun is our heat source, right? And that any meaningful discussion must include one of solar activity and influence." Those claims are ignored by Gore worshippers.
    • And then finally, the most dangerous of the bunch--stupid people with power to wield. They're willing to sacrifice freedom, liberty, and our way of life on the altar of junk science.
    • Oh...and don't get us started on specifics such as inconsistent collection of temperature data (developed vs. undeveloped areas, consistency in collection methodology, etc.). Garbage in, garbage out. Also...isn't it funny how our earth is "billions of years old" (and even "millions" or "thousands" still makes the point here), yet we're willing to extrapolate data based on a statistically insignificant sample...not to mention we've got 'evidence' the earth was much warmer in earlier eras--eras without such human "influence?"
    • Hey...I guess if you have to have a false religion...you might as well make it one that is absolutely comical and off the scale on the "selling-a-pile-of-poop-O-meter"...
