Thepeople without power, officials said Tuesday.
Its climate change man. Any variation +/- 5 degrees, and 2 inches of snow is now part of Climate Change. Some Russian must have used a SamsClub-sized aerosol can and caused this snow fall.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
Greenrocks article + ArPees map = no change
Well, that's just not correct at all. But you've repeatedly shown you have zero credibility on the issue, so what should I expect?
Go back to your vacuous threads about "wells racists" or whatever. You operate best in zero substance contexts.
The article did not say anything about cold did it?
In guessing it did not because temps in Moscow are well within the seasonal average range this year.
Just above average precipitation.
How this particular event discredits climate change is something you would need to explain.

Scientists say such extreme weather is only likely to increase.
"The weather we've seen in the past couple of days completely fits with the tendency that was identified a couple of years ago, that we are going to to see much stronger, intensive bursts of precipitation in the future," said Alexei Kokorin, director of the climate and energy program at WWF Russia. "In the summer, we will probably see stronger bursts of rain."
"In Moscow, that causes problems for transportation," he said. "But in Central Asia and other places, it means flash flooding and very serious problems for agriculture."
I had to wear mittens this morning, therefore, global warming is a communist hoax!
Bang. Fishx2 torched again on climate.
The heavy snowfall is because of the global warming
nothing but superficial replies on this topic from the usual suspects.
I don't know about Moscow, but Russia has experienced its coldest winter in almost 100 years
Warmer oceans = more evaporation = more snow. At least that is my wishful thinking as a skier.
Aren't we still waiting to hear what your allegedly science oriented job is?

Doc Spartan: " temps in Moscow are well within the seasonal average range this year."
ArPee: "Scientists say such extreme weather is only likely to increase."
You guys are very confused!

Yet the bran muffin ignores the fact the Great Lakes are at their lowest levels since they started keeping records in 1918.
The idiocy by the connies who think science is all politics is strange. I wonder if the same twits would deny cancer treatments because they doubt the science.
This is proof of global warming?
Draining Lake Michigan via the Chicago River and draining Lake Huron via the St Clair River has nothing to do with the climate.
Link to any information that says conservatives think science is ALL politics.
I would deny some cancer treatments as the science to support many of them is weak and not cost-effective. Don't know how that is connected to global warming science, but then you aren't known as the most logical thinker around here.
So you support death panels?
Fish....at least be honest enough to call out which year this was....the article you referenced was from 2002...11 years ago.....oops!
So weather as humans think of it has many components....two primary ones are:
In this case the article references intense periods of precipitation, but says nothing about temperature.
Temperatures in Moscow are well within seasonal averages, precipitation is well above.
It's surprising to me that this concept causes you any confusion.
It could be that you read Fish's post about record cold in Moscow and that confused you? (That article was written in 2092)
Yeah, it's pretty obvious you aren't proud of your degree.
I'm quoting the article that the OP posted. Your schtick is tired.
there really shouldn't be any debate about whether or not climates change, since we already know that they do. the real question is whether or not, after taking into consideration the current age and expected lifespan of Earth, we are living in a time period that could ever reasonably be deemed to be a representative sample for purposes of trying to understand why?
transportation always sucks in Moscow, the city is a festering hole of graft, corruption and shitty communist-era infrastructure.
I think we should take some of these people, and send 'em up to Bear Mountain for a picnic.
never mind that any climatologist can show you study after study that GCC leads to more extreme temps both hot and cold. Hell, even this Russian scientist said it....but I'm sure you know more surfing right wing sites that thing science is the devil while sitting in your trailer.
In its annual forecast for next year, the UKs Met Office predicts that global temperatures are forecast to be 0.57C above the long-term average next year, making 2013 one of the warmest years on record. This means that the next few decades may see a spate of catastrophic changes take place on Earth, something that some experts say will be caused by a cold spell-turned-new glacial age rather than global warming. They argue that the cold snap may begin already in 2014., Mikhail Aristov
Since the mid 1970s, global temperatures have been warming at around 0.2 degrees Celsius per decade. However, weather imposes its own dramatic ups and downs over the long term trend. We expect to see record cold temperatures even during global warming. Nevertheless over the last decade, daily record high temperatures occurred twice as often as record lows. This tendency towards hotter days is expected to increase as global warming continues into the 21st Century.
