Global Warming?? - #3740 - Alaska's Largest City Eyes Snow Record - AP( 2) "Nice Weather" Makes Obama "a Little Nervous" - Hot Air (3) New Study: Young People Aren't as Into Environmentalism as You Might Think - The Blaze

Just a Reminder for those who always blame man-made global warming, Alaska is breaking records for SNOW.......

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- A near-record snowfall this winter has buried Anchorage neighborhoods, turning streets into snow-walled canyons and even collapsing some roofs. But some residents are hoping for more, at least another 3.3 inches. Then they could say they made it through the winter when the nearly 60-year record of 132.6 inches was broken. "I want it destroyed," resident Melissa Blair said. "I want to see another foot and knock that record out of the park."

"Nice Weather" Makes Obama "A Little Nervous" - Hot Air - It’s the single biggest reason I resent global warming alarmists and climate change activists: They’ve made the one topic that was supposed to always be safe in polite conversation controversial. Today, we can’t even talk about the weather without sounding political overtones. The president proved that with these off-the-cuff remarks at an Atlanta fundraiser yesterday:  Potus talked about how he had been in Chicago and Atlanta and how the weather was so warm. “It gets you a little nervous about what is happening to global temperatures. When it is 75 degrees in Chicago in the beginning of March, you start thinking. On the other hand, I really have enjoyed nice weather.”  Eh, well, I sympathize with the president’s spring fever and with the idea that weather can be nerve-wracking. Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, 75-degree weather in March. It’s all just harrowing — and evidence that humans are hastening doomsday.  Read more.......

New Study: Young People Aren't as Into Environmentalism as You Might Think - The Blaze - While there may be a perception that today’s youth are environmentally minded do-gooders, an academic analysis of surveys spanning more than 40 years has found they are not as in to tree hugging as many may have thought. The report finds they are less interested in the environment and in conserving resources — and often less civic-minded overall — than their elders were when they were young.The findings counter the widespread belief that environmental issues have hit home with today’s young adults, known as Millennials, who have grown up amid climate change discussion and the mantra “reduce, reuse, recycle.” The environment is often listed among top concerns of young voters but the review actually showed a steady decline in concern about the environment and willingness to take action to save it.  Read more.........
