I'll just remind you that it hardly ever snows in Florida. And Al Gore is still a jerk......................

Then I'll just remind you that there have been recorded and reported observations of snowfall, in Florida, since 1774. In fact, there has been recorded snowfall in five of the last eight years.

This has nothing whatsoever to do with global warming, it has not been attributed to global warming, and is not caused by global warming. Al Gore may or may not be a jerk, but he has nothing to do with this subject.

Hold on! You were the one that stated Al Gore was a jerk...because it happened to snow in Florida!!! I simply pointed out that this is not new, and pointed out that this is nothing to do with global warming. I then stated that "Al Gore may or may not be a jerk, but he has nothing to do with this subject", because it or he has nothing to do with this topic.

what's wrong with that?

A lot of people confuse the local weather extremes with climate.

In local weather you can have flukes like snow in California or Italy, that does not automatically mean that climate change is not happening. Looking at the statistics of several years for an area gives you an idea about the climate and how it's changing over time. Some areas will get hotter, drier, colder or wetter. So global warming or cooling is missleading, climate change is more exact for what is happening to our worlds climate at the moment.
The climate change as such isn't debated, whether it's man made or not is.

Even if Al Gore is a jerk, it doesn't make him wrong. It is an ad hominem attack and is as such fallacious.

Can you believe Lubbock Texas had two feet of hail last night!



Snow plows needed to clear hail in Texas Panhandle

Associated Press - April 17, 2009 5:45 PM ET

"It's a cleanup day across parts of West Texas and the Panhandle after strong storms moved through the region.

"No injuries were reported.

"Meanwhile:

"The National Weather Service says parts of Southeast Texas faced the threat of heavy rain and thunderstorms today.

"Oncor Electric Delivery reports about 25,000 customers without power today in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Spokeswoman Carol Peters says mainly wind and lightning caused the downed power lines and outages.

"Passengers on flights to and from major airports in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston areas experienced delays during the worst of the storms.

"Early today one twister touched down briefly north of Kress, about 60 miles south of Amarillo. Another touched down just east of Lubbock, in Crosby County.

"Two others came down a few hours later near Lake Thomas in Scurry County, about 100 miles southeast of Lubbock."
