It usually waits in Central Texas to get cold, cold in December and then only for short periods with quick warmups. January is our winter and by mid-February it’s warming up for good.
Not this year. Freezing nights have already been here and more are expected.
No big surprise, says Martin Mlynczak of Nasa’s Langley Research Center:
Very few sunspots on the sun this year means “it could be about to get very cold very quickly…If current trends continue, it could set a new Space Age record for cold…It could happen in a matter of months.”
UPDATE: We’ve been spared the snow so far. We rarely get snow.
“NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over the past two years. Not that you’d know it, since that wasn’t deemed news. Does that make NASA a global warming denier?”

Thomas Sowell spells it out in this decade-old-but-still-relevant review of a documentary that’s still available on the Internet:
“While the public has been led to believe that ‘all’ the leading scientists buy the global warming hysteria and the political agenda that goes with it, in fact the official reports from the United Nations or the National Academy of Sciences are written by bureaucrats — and then garnished with the names of leading scientists who were ‘consulted,’ but whose contrary conclusions have been ignored.”
“Much of recent global warming has been fabricated by climate scientists to make it look more frightening, a study has found. The peer-reviewed study by two scientists and a veteran statistician looked at the global average temperature datasets (GAST) which are used by climate alarmists to argue that recent years have been ‘the hottest evah’ and that the warming of the last 120 years has been dramatic and unprecedented.
“What they found is that these readings are ‘totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.'”
Solid line is the approximate extent of glaciation in the last Ice Age, 11,000 years ago. All ice above it. People below it could survive. Dotted line is the approximate extent in the previous Ice Age.
“Climbing ever higher on the bodies of their fallen comrades, they tried to stay above the ever deepening snow. Still it kept coming. Four stories deep. Six stories deep. Nine. All in one day. Still they kept climbing, nine stories into the sky.”—Not By Fire, But By Ice

If the Gorebot’s championing of it, while maintaining a mansion with a very high electric utility bill and flying in a private jet, wasn’t enough of a clue there’s his prediction of years ago that we would all be drowning by now.
Moreover, there’s the famous scientific consensus. It’s unraveling:
“Last year there were at least 60 peer-reviewed papers published in scientific journals demonstrating that today’s warming isn’t global, unprecedented, or remarkable.
“Just within the last 5 months, 58 more papers and 80 new graphs have been published that continue to undermine the popularized conception of a slowly cooling Earth temperature history followed by a dramatic hockey-stick-shaped uptick, or an especially unusual global-scale warming during modern times.”
Climate change, aka global warming, always has been a leftist schuck and that’s becoming more and more obvious—even as the Mediacrats and Mr. Platitude (Bronco Bama) himself continue to push it.

“The Paris Accords on Climate,” writes scifi author Jerry Pournelle, “have reduced Germany to a state in which electricity is a luxury good according to Der Spiegel; so naturally President Trump is exhorted to agree to this nonsense.
“After all, the Europeans have; why should we be spared the economic pain? Surely Europe’s misery from self inflicted wounds is a more pressing problem for the US than the agenda Mr. Trump was elected for? Perhaps Senator McCain will tell us what the Paris Accords will do for the Earth, Europe, South America, various other places, and, perhaps even how they would affect the United States. We have natural gas; making it more expensive will certainly help Russia. Perhaps that’s it.”
Naw. President Trump should dump the accords on the climate schuck as soon as possible. Let the Mediacrats, Europe and the “Resistance” howl. They would find something to bitch about anyway.

UPDATE: More reasons to dump the accords: “American families would be paying more while making less.“
