I read where it wasnt Global Warming, and that El Nino is completely different. But that's just what I read...and you know how that goes.

We cant forget about the changing of the earths magnetic pole. They say they can see a difference in the magnetic fields reversing.
Global warming
Magnetic poles
El nino
La nina
Melting of ploar ice caps
Government
Whos or whats to blame
How about the earth has a heartbeat and breaths on it's own.

From what I was told, it is a El Nino that has the Jet Stream bottled up in Canada and not allowing any Arctic air to spread southeast. Its suppose to be 70 or so here today in Atlanta. Its suppose to get cold again this week, but its not going to last long because there are to many warm fronts pulling up out of the gulf....I mean even Louisiana had a few tornado's yesterday, and thats almost unheard of....But I just have this strange feeling that its going to snow in April here in Atlanta.....hope not, but just a bad feeling.....
I am excited, because I have been have seed a few lawn because of how warm the ground temp has been. All my lawns that I over-seeded with Rye in Sept and Oct are doing great....Even some of those I seeded in Nov and Dec are doing great.....Plus we have finally started to get some rain, so I am not complaining at all.....
Now I know its a different story for all you snow plowing guys.....this has got to be a kicker right between the goal post.....because no snow, means no work, which means no $$$$$$....Hope most of you guys have a back up plan and wasnt depending on the snow to take you through the winter.....
But I am headed out in just a little to do some fishing....

Nope that not it.
The winds over the pacific ocean blows warm water to the west towards asia and cool waters rise from the bottom on the east side of the pacific.
In el nino years the winds change and the warmer waters move to the east side of the pacific. That is the cause of el nino in a nut shell

Me to Rod. I now believe it is happening. It is January 6th and in central pa. it is almost going to be 70 degrees today. It is not like its been real cold and we have a fluke hot day, but its been like this. Im not listening anymore to this crap about global warming not happening.

That argument is nothing but political, and pundits trying to strenghen their own parties agendas. The hell with politics, and politicians, and pundits.
