This Sunday’s NFL Game in Green Bay: Coldest Ever?

http://www.drroyspencer.com/2014/01/this-sundays-nfl-game-in-green-bay-coldest-ever/

[Update: Spencer tells Climate Depot: 'The latest GFS MOS fcst for 6 p.m. Sunday is -10 deg. F]

The latest GFSx MOS temperature forecast is now -8 deg. F for game time in Green Bay on Sunday evening for the playoff game between the Packers and the 49ers. This is getting awfully close to the record coldest NFL game temperature of -13 deg. F, set Dec. 31, 1967 at Lambeau Field during “The Ice Bowl”, the NFL Championship game between the Packers and Dallas Cowboys.

The 2nd coldest game was Jan. 10, 1982 at Riverfront Stadium during the AFC Championship game between Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers, at -9 deg. F, so Sundays game might take the #2 spot. The top 10 coldest NFL games are listed here. Makes my hands hurt just thinking about it.

    Makes me glad I have to watch it on TV!

    • acmoreno

      …unless you’re in the local television market (from Green Bay through Milwaukee) and the game is blacked out for insufficient ticket sales. I’m doing my part by flying up from Florida to go see the game.

      • jOkeR

        They just sold out. Black-out avoided.

        • Elizabeth Fisher

          Awesome. I can’t remember for what game, but Kroger’s was going to buy up the tickets and distribute them to members of the military.

        • acmoreno

          Just saw the headlines. Thanks to the local business and Associated Banc-Corp. Now, we can move between Curley’s and Lambeau without missing much.

        • Smitty

          But will there be a whiteout instead?

          • jOkeR

            That’s racist!

      • Skipper

        they wont accept welfare like food stamps

      • RETUSAF1995

        Do you really think advertisers will allow the game to be blacked out? If anything, they will buy the tickets. The more people watch, the more crap they will sell.

        • Sam Swift

          Who really cares about a bunch of overgrown negroes in tights playing with balls?

          • Franken Stein

            Hmm, this story must be linked by drudge. The level of racism in these comments is outrageous.

          • Sam Swift

            Then move on…..no one owes you anything.

          • depressionbaby

            Why isn’t there Affirmative Action in professional football, baseball and basketball? Professional Hockey is safe for now.

      • Jeffrey Gee

        Maybe, if our Roman Gladiators stopped supporting politics, people wouldn’t be turned off. It’s entertainment/distraction… I like watching a game sometimes and it is good for young children and teens to play sports. Take the politics out of sports, and the money out of politics is all I wanted to say! Go Green Bay even though I am Redskins advocate!

    • RETUSAF1995

      I like the way the media talks about how the SB should not be played in a cold weather city but no one talks about playing/moving the playoffs to say Miami. When i grew up playing and watching football in weather was part of the fun. This shows how soft Americans have become.

      I’am looking forward to watching the game in GB. I remember when Bud Grant (Viking coach) once said when asked, why didn’t he have heaters on his side of the field? He said he wanted the players to think more about the game than staying warm! Now that’s football!!!

  • JJErler

    Lame… shouldn’t the headline be 3rd coldest game ever??? Unless someone is predicting it’ll be -14, this story seems to be a cheap attempt to get attention.

    • smarter than JJ

      That’s at kickoff. And weather isn’t perfect

      • distillerman

        C’mon man…..don’t you know that “the science is settled?” (sarcasm noted….)

  • ** Civilian Target **

    This cracks me up. A bunch of idiots freezing their a**es off to watch a team that doesn’t even know they personally exist. Dang…. the team should have been paying the fans for attending the game.

    • FarmboyDuke

      The people sitting in the stands freezing their a**es off actually own the team. In Green Bay, anyway.

      • ** Civilian Target **

        Well, I sure hope those owners are getting their multimillion dollar checks.

        • FarmboyDuke

          The fans are the owners. The Packers are a publicly owned NFL franchise. I doubt they are getting multimillion dollar checks, though…just the pride of owning a piece of a storied team.

          • ** Civilian Target **

            They are obvious dedicated.

          • guest

            That’s total B.S. pseudo-ownership. People can buy ‘a share’ of the team but they have NO voting rights towards ownership decisions like one has with an actual stock purchase which entitles you to help decide the direction of the company you own. Furthermore, they can not sell their shares in the team to anyone and they get NO dividends from the investment. It is not at all like owning a share in anything, it is giving a donation to a professional sports team which then turns around and makes millions off of you while you receive nothing in return. Please look it up if you don’t believe me, it is all true.

          • Raptormann

            Public ownership is the farce used to rape taxpayers for stadium updates. All financial studies of publicly owned teams has shown the economic spinoff doesn’t match expectations.

  • bill

    donkey

  • Samson Simpson

    With all the public financing for these so called “teams”, why are any games played in open air stadiums.?

    • ** Civilian Target **

      Because they don’t care about the fans.

    • FLOYDINFLORIDA

      Well look at Seattle where the weather is bad 99% of the time!
      They tore their dome down and built a outdoor stadium?
      Go figure?

    • The_RS_Gadfly

      Because it’s not football if there isn’t a chance of playing in the middle of a snow storm.

      That was always one of the great things about watching Penn State play before the wusses in the administration put up the indoor practice stadium. Our guys practiced in the weather, odds were theirs hadn’t. And it showed during the game.

  • Rex

    More proof of Global Warming, just like the global warming whackjob “scientists” whose ship is stuck in the Antarctic ice pack, in the summer time….
    Funny how the democrat media never mentions the global warming scientists are studying MELTING SEA ICE!!
    The Socialist Semite democrat media has lied about everything!

    • constructionworker

      Their rescue ship is now stuck. Hope these so called scientists on the trapped shipped wake up and realize that global warming is a hoax.

      • vinny

        No they already stated that what has happened is due to global warming. You can’t argue with fanatics hell bent on an agenda.

        • 123Star

          Will Al Gore finally cave ?

          • Pete

            “Fat Al” Gore was seen in his countinghouse, totaling up his winnings from his scam of the gullible, impressionable and ever willing to follow Biology 101 types that populate his phalanx of lemming/believers.

          • Robert Govan

            Al Gore is aka actor Bruce Willis in a fat suit and face latex. No Joke. He is not the only A-list actor doing this……..Wellaware1.com

          • seanster5977

            He is sending his jet to circle and take high aerial photos. Will only use around 8000000 gallons of fuel so worth it

          • 123Star

            now your making it sound like obama, he burns more fuel than south west airlines. we pay that bill as well. you wonder why obama is not in touch with people, he’s always up in the air….

          • TheBitterClinger1

            No but his substantial girth could fill most caves.

          • twinstick1

            Will Al Gore finally go back to his cave???

      • erehwon53

        DUH its wither time up north its supposed to be cold

        • pruttmaster

          Haaa …last time i checked the Antarctica was in the south and currently experiencing summer ….thx for the laugh …also if it wasnt for your condensending “DUH” Id let you get away with your spelling mistake “wither time ” ! (or was it a mistake ;D)

          • mdillof

            pruttmaster, in your post, you wrote “Id,” when you should have written “I’d.”

            Also, “wither time” is poetic, since the cold weather causes everything to wither, both twigs and prigs, like yourself.

          • Amos2

            HA! The pot calling the kettle black!

          • Beallthere

            Poetic or not, wither doesn’t associate with cold or Winter. Its meaning relates to drying out due to dry conditions, drought, lack of rain. Hence, ‘wither on the vine.’
            ..That said, look back at the era when plants and animals grew so thick that their carcasses eventually morphed into oil, coal or natural gas. Was it warm or cold then ? Id say it was VERY warm. Else how would so much oil be under the Arctic Ocean ?

          • mdillof

            Yes, to be more precise, the heat causes withering, while the cold causes shriveling.

            What you state about oil, coal and gas, is interesting, even though I’m not exactly sure that I understand your point. Are you contending that the earth was originally hot and has been cooling off since its creation? If so, you’re probably right. Whither goest thou?

          • rockribbed

            Had a freshening heifer cast her withers once… winter of ’65 it was…
            Like the weather, there was nothing I could do about it… So we butchered her and ate her.

          • erehwon53

            your right its spelled wrong, too late at night to makes comments and proofread. as for the comment just because the Antarctica is colder in summertime has nothing to do about the facts of climate change.Antarctica is a very cold place. But global warming is affecting it as predicted: Antarctica is losing ice overall, according to the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. However, sea ice is a different matter than land-based or glacial ice. Antarctic sea ice is increasing, and moreover, the reason for this may be climate change!

          • constructionworker

            Are you able to see how very twisted your thought process is? Overly it is, but is doubtful that you have the ability to see the forest for the trees! Just WOW at your convoluted thinking!!

          • erehwon53

            Whats convoluted about the facts. The earth is getting warmer, thats a fact and at a rate never send before. The polar ice caps are melting. Because of the rise in temps we are seeing abnormally extreme weather all around the world. The typhoon in the Philippines to hurricanes Sandy and Katrina. these sorts of storms used to happen maybe one every 10 to 20 years. Now they are now happening every 3 to 5 years. Global warming is actually expected to increase “heavy precipitation in winter storms,” and for the northern hemisphere, there is evidence that these storms are already more frequent and intense, according to the draft US National Climate Assessment.

            You can believe what you want. its too late now to really change this pattern and most of us won’t be alive to see its affects but our children and grand children will.

          • cookielee

            Climate change? The climate changes every minute of everyday since the earth was formed. The sun is the most anemic it has been in this active cycle.

          • mdillof

            “You are right” is abbreviated as “you’re right.” The “you’re” is a contraction. And so, “your right” is incorrect, which means you’re wrong about grammar and wrong about so-called “global warming.

          • erehwon53

            wow you passed grammar in school but failed science.

          • mdillof

            Maybe so, comrade, but the word “wow,” in your sentence should have a comma after it and should be capitalized. Also, there should be a comma after “but.”

            Thus the sentence should read, “Wow, you passed grammar, but failed science.”

          • erehwon53

            Lol.

          • Schmedley

            Well i tried not to judge you by “your” looks (though it was tempting), yet the more you post the more you show what an uneducated idiot you are. I hope “you’re” not offended by this, just stating what i see. Not only don’t you know the north from the south, but apparently you don’t know your Arse from a hole in the ground. Perhaps you should run along and plant a few trees, you know, to offset the carbon footprint created by flapping “your” gums and spewing all your HOT AIR!
            Last, i must ask, did being up late as you stated and i suppose you meant being tired cause you not only to misspell words, but to confuse north with south? In closing lets just say I’m HWLTMBHAY meaning, “HOWLING WITH LAUGHTER TILL MY BALLS HURT AT YOU!!”

          • Schmedely

            And yes there is a word ommission in my post, let’s (for “you’re” benefit that means “let us”) see if you can find it. And again, since now you understand the meaning I’m HWLTMBHAY! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

          • Schmedley

            Yes, but it is still SOUTH and you’ve yet to explain that brain fart?

          • erehwon53

            Maybe you should take a new hobby, education. I have a feeling you still believe the world is flat and we never landed on the moon. How’s creationism working for ya..

        • constructionworker

          Erehwon53: those ships are stuck in ANTARTICA. Last time I checked Antartica is in the Southern Hemisphere, and summer is starting there. 6 people gave you thumbs up, all 7 of you need to take geography lessons!!;)

          • erehwon53

            and whats your point. so its cold in Antarctica in the summer. its always cold in Antarctica in the summer. its the south pole.

          • constructionworker

            Now you’re dancing around your statement, very funny indeed.

          • erehwon53

            maybe some need to read about Antarctica.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antarctica#Climate

        • 123Star

          live in it and then make a statement.

      • Adam

        Wouldn’t it be better if all of congress went with them?

        • 123Star

          That’s been the problem, they think they know everything, and it’s turning into a joke. They elect to put themselves in God’s position. Have we forgotten who controls ALL earth, from creation,births, deaths,life,air, winds,storms,oceans,destruction,wars,blessings,food,family,fuel,miracles,rainbows,water,friends good and bad,and our finger prints. The list goes on and on, and these Enviromentalists are telling us to believe in them. Take a minute to think what God may be thinking of this situation. happy new years

      • PeopleAreLazyANdNotSmart

        Global Warming is about the change in weather patterns. Every time you idiots think its about warm weather you get laughed at. Why don’t you find out what you are talking about before you talk trash. Al Gore by-the-way never said to have invented the internet just in case you guys decide to bring that up because everyone brings up those two hand and hand. You don’t believe in global warming? Then why did 180 (not sure how many countries signed the bill) agreed to stop heavily allowing emissions into the air? Are you saying you are smarter then most of these countries that KNOW its a problem?

          The exact same reason Obamacare was implemented- to bring the citizenry down to feudal serfs.

        • constructionworker

          Look at the money trail. Most of those countries have received a lot of money from the US alone. You will learn. The earth’s temperature has stopped rising 17 years ago. Look at this year, hurricanes and tornadoes were below their normal numbers. Has we continue to cool will you continue to blame it on global warming? It used to be called Global Warming and then Climate Change and now Climate Disruption. Do you realize climate change has been occurring well before humans appeared on this planet???

        • sodacrackers2

          The whole global warming scam is another “spread the wealth” scheme cooked up by the globalists, who want open borders, no ownership of private property, destruction of all religion, culture, and art. The only ones accumulating all this wealth are our brilliant elite permanent political class.

      • ColdEnoughFor You?

        No, they helicoptered them to a global warming shrine ship and they are praying to Al Gore to melt the ice.

    • Ray Williams

      Not to mention it is summer time in the southern hemisphere.

      • Amos2

        If it is summer in Antarctica, and these idiots’ ship is stuck in ice, what chance is there of having it freed when it is winter in Antarctica? Methinks this ship will serve as a frozen monument into the unforeseeable future mocking the arrogance, mindlessness, and abject intellectual depravity of all who preached and espoused the pseudo-religion of “Global Warming.”

        • Ralph Anderson

          They better get it out pretty soon or it will not get out. It is essentially June now in Antarctica, so there are two months of “summer” there, thought summer is not the right word.

          • Amos2

            Get a life!

          • Ralph Anderson

            Typical gibberish unintelligent reply. In your world, I guess, you are so limited intellectually that thinking seriously about anything is way out of your skill set. I have a great life, season tickets for the Hawks play off games, just got out of the Washington Arizona basketball game, and just got back from a week in SF. Basically, your reply is a confession of your ignorance and lack of education. You are exactly why this country is going in the shitter.

    • # SoulLeister

      I saw a man made global warming scientist (using that term loosely) by the side of the road with a flat time… he refused to acknowledge it was flat… insisting the other three had swollen up because of warming.

      • John Clausen

        Soul, What is a flat time?

        • murlo2y

          A music term, opposed to “sharp”. Basically he was bored to death staring at his tires.

      “The Socialist Semite democrat media has lied about everything!”

      they are not democrats. they are marxist, globalist, collectivist, secularist, humanist, facist nutjobs. and the phony big government republicans who have the same foreign policy and support the same spending are no better. they are bought and paid for by the same globalist central bankers as the democrats and dont give a rats a$$ about the constitution. not a single true conservative or classic liberal in the whole bunch. wake up dummy!

      • popkorn

        Every one of these global warming fruitcakes is a democrat. This big lie is just to make the United States pay money to loser countries because of the failure of their liberalism that they love and con not make work any longer.

        • james

          oh yeah, not one republican?! do some research moron.

          “As recently as his 2010 book, No Apology, Romney wrote, “I believe that
          climate change is occurring. … I also believe that human activity is a
          contributing factor. I am uncertain how much of the warming, however,
          is attributable to man and how much is attributable to factors out of
          our control.””

          it is better to keep your mouth closed and look the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.

          • gorgonzo

            That’s just one more reason at least 4 million 2008 election Republican voters didn’t even bother to show up in 2012. They believe mostly the same things.

          • enemy_of_the_statist

            Rinomney may be a republican but he is not a conservative, moron.

          • Ralph Anderson

            Romney is a conservative by any fair definition. Most of the commentators here, regardless of all the problems with global warming proof, are NOT CONSE3RVATIVES. Barry Goldwater and Bill Buckley were conservatives. The term for the modern right wingers from Fox to the Tea Baggers is REACTIONARY. Look it up.

          • Amos2

            RINO Romney is no Classic Conservative. He pandered to the wrong people and he got his just deserts.My only regret is he didn’t lose by a larger margin. Now, this phony along with another all-time loser, McCain, are sticking their ginder-filled noses into the 2016 race. May they both die of old age before they are ever considered again as contenders.

          • beanbag2020

            Since when did Romney become a conservative?

          they aren’t liberals!!!!!!! thomas jefferson was a liberal.

            Wrong. Obama is a super liberal and he is the worst thing that has ever happened to this country.

      • Jiskwa Agiya

        And they are getting the vote by catering to environmentalism. Empty people who just want to save the earth from its inevitable destruction and humanity from its inevitable self destruction.

    • Mickey

      Do you REALLY have to sneak “Jews” into the discussion, Heinrich? What century do you think this is?

      • Amos2

        So, who is the real anti-Semite? The elite Jews are still very relevant to the discussion since they hold positions that give them access to the levers of power.

        • Mickey

          Which has what to do with them being Jews? I think it has more to do with them, as individuals, being ambitious and working hard. They don’t get where they are by sitting around drinking beer and watching NASCAR.

          • Ralph Anderson

            So true: the losers sit around and complain about the success of those of us who go to school, work hard, sacrifice for family and career, and achieve success through hard work. I am a Lutheran, but can testify that no matter what your faith or creed, there will be those who sit on their asses and were incapable to achieve academic or business success, so they are envious and jealous of those who have succeeded. It is much like the pretty boys in HS who never turned out for football, never spent a minute practicing in rain, snow, heat, cold, and every sort of foul weather, who put their names and reps on the line by playing in public where people can see them win or fail: but always would say “I could star in football. I was a running back in fifth grade and I am better than those guys playing now.” No you are not: you have neither the will, the guts, nor the talent to do anymore than talk. So if you succeed, harden yourself against the whining of the couch bound losers.

          • Amos2

            Obama’s political and economic activities belie the fact that he and his handlers are not in league with the elite Jewish moneyed class (read Soros, Zuckerberg, Alderson, The Sulzberger Media Empire, etc.) Through Obama and the Democrats, they have co-opted the government to do their bidding. They are the real power behind Obama’s throne. They strive to keep the spotlight off themselves, by using Obama and his thugs in the Media, in government, in education and entertainment, to stir up chaos in the body politic and pit one citizen against another in class, generational, and ethnic warfare. While citizens are sparring with one another, the elitists are busy consolidating their power and exercising, through the Democrat party control, over the American populous. This is not rocket science. Americans need to open their eyes and see that their freedoms are being brokered away while they merely wring their hands and do nothing to ensure their future and the future of their posterity.

          No they don’t. They only live on in your Nazi racism and bigotry. As my dad said about people like you after serving the entirety of WW II aboard a destroyer: I don’t understand these skinhead Nazis and right wingers. I spent five years killing those people to preserve our freedom. I guess there will always be morons. That was from a decorated war veteran and political conservative. The modern right is far closer to Mussolini that Buckley or Goldwater. They will probably take of the Republican Party (Lincoln is spinning in his grave along with Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and the other old time, true conservatives. The new crop are bigoted anti Semites and generally uninformed name callers.

          • Amos2

            Zucker is part of the Obama and Democrat-Marxist open endeavor to disarm the American Citizen. There is not one Jew, who either owns, manages or writes for the Main Stream Media or is evolved in the communications and entertainment industry that does not support Obama and the Communist Left-Wing ideologues. Lenin was a Jew. Trotsky was a Jew. Most of the Soviet ideologues were Jews. You draw your own conclusion about the Jewish elitists like the Sulzberger and Newhouse families, who influence gun control policies in America. This is not anti-Semitism. This is calling it as it is.

          • Ralph Anderson

            Calling it as it is for a bigot and Nazi, maybe. That world only exists in your fevered imagination. I know it must have been hard to be dumber than most of your classmates, but there are Roman Catholics, Methodists, Episcipalians, Lutherans, Mormons, Unitarnians and agnostics who have had positions of power far more influential that your made up “evidence.”. But then mindless generalization without real evidence is the best your can do with your second grade education and shoe size IQ. Most of the Soviet idealogues WERE NOT JEWS. You are either lying (a Nazi trick from way back) or are just too ignorant. This kind of fascist progaganda (and that is what it sounds like Herr Goebbels!) is too lame and facile to fool anyone with any sense. You are not a patriot: you are a traitor and treacherous hyena. Go back to your shift at McDonalds.
            And by the way, one of the best parts of my life, on top of the best year I ever had in my business last year (had to pay a lot of B&O taxes for the quarter, but glad to do so since it meant I had a solid quarter), is attacking lying, thieving bigots like you. I agree with my dad on that: people like you don’t deserve to live in a free society.
            Go Hawks!

          • Amos2

            People believe Communism to be a recent phenomenon. This is not true. It has been around for at least two thousand years. The Jewish community that grouped itself around Jesus was a religio-communist practicum. Judas, one of the Twelve, held the common purse. The “Acts of the Apostles” is replete with communist practices by early Jewish-Christians.

            Monasteries and convents that began to crop up in the 3rd and 4th centuries were religio-communistic in their rules and practices.

            Fast forward a couple of millennia and we find the Jew Karl Marx providing an economic justification for communism by basing his reasoning on the philosophy of the German Jew, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. Other Jews, Lenin and Trotsky promoted Marx’s economic ideas in Russia.

            Today, we find the Sulzbergers, also Jews, and scions of a media empire encouraging Obama in his efforts to impose socialism, a form of communism upon Americans. This whole leveling enterprise, from beginning to end, breathes the Jewish ethos. This is a way of life many people espouse and see as useful for their purposes. Others do not. What is objectionable is the effort to shove this way of life down other peoples’ throats.

          • Ralph Anderson

            I assume you never heard of Buckley or Goldwater, who was by the way an Episcopalian. Typical.

          • Amos2

            The Jewish media seek to aim the spotlight on any and all persons, groups, issues, events, that will distract the general population from everything and everyone but the elitist Jews. In the meantime, the elitist Jews, using their influence in communications, media, entertainment, politics, banking, education, seek to undermine the public confidence, cause chaos within the social comity, and accuse any and every one, who sees their objective as being anti-Semitic. I have supported the State of Israel, financially and with the written word. This is more than can be said for the elitist Jews in America, who pay lip service to Israel and seek only to use their influence and money to undermine America, its citizens and the American way of life. P.S. I worked for and supported Goldwater in his campaign against Johnson. I happen to know more about Goldwater than I believe you will ever know.

    The NFL is crazy. Just switch the two NFC games to avoid this debacle. Who the hell wants to sit out in that kind of weather? Sure, it’s supposed to be an outside game, but not at the risk of spectator life and limb (or digits). The stadium may be close to sold out, but it will still be half-empty…

      I was at the NFC championship game in 2008 between the Giants and the Packers and no one died or suffered. So, 80,000 people sat through the game just fine and allow the wimps of of society to sit home and watch the game.

    • whatever

      Give me a break. I was outside last night for three hours in -15. If you bundle up its not that big of a deal. You must be from CA.

      • PJK in BD

        Wrong – WI. I just have a brain. IF you spent three hours outside last night in -15°F (couldn’t have been in WI, since it only got down to -8°F, or so) I can just imagine how “fun” that was. Maybe with enough anti-freeze in your blood it was “fun”. I’ve sat out literally all day (that’s >8 hrs) when deer hunting in Northern WI and didn’t freeze, obviously. It just wasn’t exactly awesome, and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend >$100 for the privilege, to sit on an overly-crowded bleacher. Lambeau has shitty aluminum benches, and there isn’t enough room for the people to sit in November with medium-weight colthes, let alone now when they’re all “bundled up”…

        • whatever

          Sorry Pal, Got down to -15 where I was and that was in WI. I’ve been to Jan games in Lambeau and it is still really fun. If I had the money I would go this weekend. You wear warm clothes and bring something to sit on. The stadium won’t be anywhere near half empty. And if you are going to complain about getting cold when deer hunting then why would you go? Just stay home with the rest of the wives.

  • BRJ in Chicago

    Who cares about this game anyway. No matter who wins WILL LOSE TO THE SEAHAWKS at Century Link Field. -8 or +8 the temperature still feels about the same. No wonder they are having a hard time selling out the stadium. Neither team has a chance for the Superbowl and the public doesn’t care.

      So long as it isn’t raining, it shouldn’t be too much of an issue. And at those temps, it won’t be raining.

      When you pack that many people side by side, body heat helps a lot. Also, you dress appropriately for the weather, preferably layers. I haven’t been out in weather that cold, but I’ve been in Beaver stadium when it was well below freezing without trouble. On the other hand, I’ve been to a few rainy somewhat above freezing games and had to take shelter by the heaters. Some of the rain come in through the poncho, or worse, you get wet from sweat even though it’s cold. Once the dampness is in all the clothing, you’re done.

          • Catler

          • Sodbuster

            Here’s a reasonable suggestion. Go back to articles written in these same journals 7 to15 years ago, and see if you can find one that correctly predicted the cooling that we have experienced since then. I’ve actually seen some that predicted a “few” years of cooling that might happen till maybe 2009.. then hotter than ever after that. But I’ve seen none that predicted the degree or duration of the cooling (or delayed warming) that we have seen. You can include articles on predicted sea level rise, sea ice increases, etc. It should be relatively easy to analyze their conclusions and methodology in hind sight. If what you discover is article after article of errant predictions, then be honest and open-minded enough to reconsider the objects of your trust.

          • RHO1953

            There are thousands. Go to Climate Depot and do some reading. It is just as credible as your propaganda rags that you cite so often.

          • Dont Followme

            Ah, so it’s their methodology for gathering temperature statistics. Okay, pick out a paper and tell me what exactly is wrong with the methodology.

          • Sodbuster

            If someone makes a prediction, using any given methodology, and the predicted result fails to materialize, it’s safe to assume there was something wrong with the methodology, without even analyzing the methodology. Can you tell us how the methodology in this paper you reference differs from the methodology Al Gore used to come up with his obviously erroneous predictions?

          • Skipper

            show me the evidence

          • RHO1953

            Bad siting for measuring stations (hot spots like over concrete, blacktop, airport taxiways), cherry picking of only measurements that confirm warming. They have omitted thousands of sites that have shown no warming. The Russians were livid when thousands of their data inputs were disregarded. The models don’t work, none of them have delivered proper results. Their “solution” was to simply skew the models with corrective multipliers until they yielded the desired results. Yeah, that’s real science alright.

      • RHO1953

        Yes, you are exactly that. But you are a fine example of the “follow me” crowd. Jump on the bandwagon and enjoy the ride.

            Still waiting on you to tell me what is wrong with a study. You seem so certain that global warming isn’t happening yet you appear to have no reason to back that claim up. Just ONE paper in the most recent Nature Climate. Just one. Tell me why it’s wrong.

          • Jeff

            Follow the money. That’s all you need to do.

            I don’t care if it’s hotter or colder. That’s been going on since the beginning of time.

            Explain the Ice Ages to me and why things got cold and then warm without human influence. Also, do you think sun activity may be a factor and a wee bit more powerful than a few SUVs on the road?

            Like I said, you move into the grass hut and send all your money to the cause. That’s your call but leave level-headed, smart people out of it, and stop the distortions.

          • Dont Followme

            Then we agree that the earth is getting hotter we just disagree about the cause. Good, that’s a start. And yes, the Earth has gone through several different climate changes in the past. The difference is the speed at which it’s happening now.

            How about you find a paper on anthropogenic global warming and tell my why that’s wrong. If the scientists are simply getting paid off to publish phony papers with bad science, then it should be easy to point out what is wrong with those studies. There are a couple of papers dealing with anthropogenic global warming in the latest edition of Nature Climate. Pick on of those and tell me why it’s wrong.

            I can make up my own numbers, as CC alarmists do, in order to start a global means of taxation through “carbon credits”, but nature itself belies those “numbers” or “studies”.

            Can fiction actually be “wrong”?

          • John McCurdy

            Here’s the truth of the matter. There is a very small percentage of climate change that is not currently captured by the models, which all predict global temperature models based on natural factors (sun activity, tides, meta weather patterns, etc.). Science has postulated that the evidentiary gap can be filled by taking into account human activity. That’s a reasonable hypothesis. Another reasonable hypothesis, and the one which you will eventually come to realize is the correct hypothesis, is that the models are simply inadequate and that climate change is essentially entirely due to natural phenomena. But even if the latter is not true, we can do whatever we wish in the west to limit greenhouse emissions, etc., but unless we take over the world and establish a worldwide government, there is virtually no chance we can “save the planet” from mankind. Eventually, if you silly people are actually correct (you are not), the planet will return to balance by reducing human population and activity. Either way, we’ll all be fine. Or we won’t. Therefore, since any rational person would take a far more accepting attitude towards so-called global warming, the left (as usual) is really motivated by a sick desire to control people rather than any bonafide concern over the planet.

          • Dont Followme

            You make the claim that there are other natural phenomena that are contributing to global warming. If you’re so sure this is the correct hypothesis then surely you can show me a study which proves you’re correct. A study that correctly identifies the cause of the rapid spike in global temperatures that is unrelated to the spike in greenhouse gases.

          • svobodnik

            Solar activity is the most likely cause of either heating or cooling on a planetary scale. But then again, that’s kind of commons sense.

          • RHO1953

            There are thousands. Do some research, oh lazy one. See what the Russian Academy of Science has to say. There is NO rapid spike in temperature. The only one to be found is the rigged chart that omits the Maunder Minimum in order to give the impression of a temperature spike. The AGW shills deliberately omitted the data.

          • Al Stewart

            Please explain the “warming” on Mars that has been identified. Are all those SUV’s to blame? All the Martians blowing hot air? All those coal mines? Fracking? Republicans? Warm oceans trapping all that hot air?
            Can’t wait for this answer

          • down_with_Bathhouse_Barry

            Or, in the alternative, he could just do what your guys do and make up some data to justify his conclusion. That would be alot easier, wouldn’t it?

          • CincyChris

            Dont Followme- You should stop arguing with John McCurdy- you see, you two are after the same endgame- a New World Order, and forced population reduction (i.e. mass murder). You two just can’t agree on a viable mode to achieve it! (Psycopaths.)

          • fulredy

            Good post. Another issue is how much will we have to spend to see any improvement to the problem as identified by these climate change scientists? These people display an arrogant, idealistic attitude that is truly absurd.

          • CincyChris

            Whoa! Hold up! It’s good that you’ve figured out that man-made global warming is a farce, but to me, you sound just as bad, if not worse, than “the left”!

            “..unless we take over the world and establish a worldwide government..”! (Are you f-ing kidding me?) “..the planet will return to balance by reducing human population..”. (Eugenics)

            Those are the phrases of a Progressive Republican Neocon; not a whole lot different than “the left”, except their acceptance of AGW. Those phrases are spoken by a person who wishes to control the free will of others, much like “the left”.

            This proves once and for all that there is not much difference between “left” and “right”- they agree on controlling the world, just not on how to go about it.

            The paradigm of life is not “left” or “right”, or Democrat or Republican, it is freedom or oppression! Get with the program! And if you believe that reducing human population is good for the planet, why don’t you do us all a favor then, and go ahead and kill yourself!

            (At least 40 people agree with you, SMH- lemmings.)

          • John McCurdy

            Sorry, CincyChris…you misunderstood my point. You and I are in violent agreement, I suspect.

            I was trying to point out the futility of it all. I thought that would have been obvious; but you’re correct to criticize my post since these days one cannot take for granted that someone might not actually believe worldwide government to be a desirable and viable solution.

            FWIW, my personal political beliefs are far more libertarian but strictly constitutional.

            Also, I haven’t figured out that man-made global warming is a farce. My point was that if man-made global warming is real there’s nothing we can do about it. Global government is the only way we could do anything about it, but that won’t happen. Ultimately, if man causes global warming man will suffer the consequences.

            What I do believe is that attributing the gap in our knowledge to man’s activities is the most enticing hypothesis for a number of reasons (political, the ability to receive grants, the desire to control, etc.). However, it’s not the only viable hypothesis.

            I suspect the ecosystem is far more capable of self-correction than climate change advocates believe it is, and that global warming (what little there is…remember we’re talking about 1 degree of change over the past century) will be negated. If it really exists.

            (I also believe that if there has been significant warming over the past century we will eventually understand that it was caused by systemic inputs beyond our control).

          • InternetSavage

            What if the “evidence” is rigged because that’s never happened before right?

          • svobodnik

            Marxist methodology. These scientists receive grants in order to “prove” Global Warming. They are already scientifically biased because they want the money.

            Now that they can’t “prove” Global Warming, they then changed the idea to “Climate Change” – again based upon the presumption that it’s related to man-made activity. At the heart of this activity is the idea that the “elites” get to tell everyone else how to live – how much fossil fuel to burn, etc.

          • RHO1953

            We have been down this path. The AGW people got caught red handed falsifying data. They take raw data and “correct” it so it shows warming that is nonexistent. Don’t trust your own common sense, don’t believe the snow and ice and bitter cold. Don’t trust the last two summers of cool weather or the thousands of cold temperature records. Don’t trust the Russian scientists or the others who are laughing at this. Just believe your government that wants to raise taxes and control your travel and lifestyle.

          • Jim Sears

            methodology, set-up of experiments, following of standard theory/proof rules to validate results, vilianization of all that challenge or question the data or results…..and the list goes on and on for what is wrong with the reports you quote. All predictions of rise in temps and sea levels have been drastically wrong. Any other “theory” with this many incorrect results would have been thrown out the window years ago.

          • vonvervengarten

            The papers that say higher temps, lower temps, stronger storms, weaker storms, less snow, more snow, less ice, more ice are all markers of global warming? Yeah, we’ve already seen it all, all day every day on the TV, in the papers, on blogs and in tweets. All nicely pushed on a population that can see how the con works. And amazingly, the less snow, more snow, higher/lower temps, less/ more ice problems are always fixable with more money, never less.

          • RHO1953

            And what demographic is that particular periodical marketing itself to? Not the people who think this is silly. They have a vested interest in perpetuating the sham of global warming, as do the “scientists” who are selling themselves like two dollar a night hookers for funding.

          • down_with_Bathhouse_Barry

            Why do you supposed the CRU at East Anglia found it necessary to falsify the data in their studies? It’s sort of a waste of time to read these papers when you’re in possession of the knowledge that these people will simply make things up and put the falsified date in their studies when the actual data doesn’t work, isn’t it? Once you know someone is a liar or a group contains liars, how are you supposed to know when they’re telling the truth?

      • Diana Lee

        Funny how that “weather versus climate” distinction goes away when a hurricane or tornado hits, all of a sudden it’s “this is what global warming looks like”.

        • Dont Followme

          News organizations that report that kind of nonsense are wrong to do so. What they are right to report is the increase in strength over the last couple of years of these storms.

          • JMD52

            And that’s not true either.

          • InternetSavage

            Except the last couple of years hurricane activity has dropped significantly, funny how the con artists can’t get nature to go along with their giant scam.

          • popkorn

            They do not need to. They have democrats and the liberal media for that.

          • dnhook

            There has been ZERO increase in strength. What should be reported is morons like yourself who spit out crapola like this and don’t back it up with…oh…I don’t know….FACTS!!

          • svobodnik

            But is that really true? I read a book on the 1900 storm that destroyed Galveston. That was one “mutha” of a storm.

          • Jim Sears

            Wow, step away from the koolaid. Hurricanes every year since Katrina have been lower than or equal to historical averages. This season was the most calm in decades. This also was one of the lowest seasons for number of tornadoes in decades. The news reports as if every storm is one of many and the worst ever toget viewers, and thus advertising, and because their liberal masters in DC need the favor….and why don’t you do some research on the temp monitoring stations…even before the global warming scam began there was a consensus that most stations did not meet the agreed upon standards for placement from heat sources, vents, blacktop, airport runways, etc….and 6-7 years ago 100′s of stations in northern areas like Siberia were excluded from the data because they were slanting it, yep cold temps would bring the average down and blow the warming hysteria mob’s theory out of the water…so your beliefs are based on special effects(Inconvenient Truth), fabricated and manipulated data, skewed data, lies, lies and more lies, and a very short term and misunderstood understanding of climate.

            These storms are not “increasing” in strength you rubes…we humans have developed more sophisticated measuring instruments, technology that was unavailable to meteorologists and scientists in past decades. You want an example? Laser based speed detectors are 30% more accurate than the old “radar guns” used by police to measure your speed. Don’t buy into the hype of these fake “experts” who cannot tell you accurately how long a specific cold or warm front is going to stay in your part of the country past 72 hours. Do you really trust these morons and their predictions for 10 years/20 years or 50 years in the future – for the entire planet? Get a grip on reality.

      • MetamorphosisCatalyst

        The funny thing about this is that there will always be an obfuscation, there will always be another excuse for why the obvious isn’t so.
        This one (“weather” vs. “climate”) is an especially effective deflection, because: how long will it take before we agree that we’re talking about “climate” and not “weather”? 25 years? 50 years? 1,000 years?
        It will never be long enough for you suckers.
        Disbelieve your lying eyes! Do not look at the man behind that curtain!
        Frankly, it’s getting a bit embarrassing.

        • Dont Followme

          Eventually yes, we’re going to see increased temperatures worldwide (and that is in fact what we’re seeing). There are still going to be places that in the winter get very cold. Over the last 100 years, global temperatures on average haven’t increased all that much. The average increase for the globe is about 1.53 degrees F. This will have a huge effect on the planet as a whole but not so much in your local area. It is enough for sea temperatures to rise significantly leading to decreased ice pack which in turn raises the sea level.

          • MetamorphosisCatalyst

Each and every one of them, who dare to use more than “their allotted” share of it’s resources, which as we all know, belong to the Elite and privileged. ie:Bill Gates, the Rockefellers, the Royals.etc. Oh and they would also like a 90% reduction in the population on “their” planet as well, so most of you out there Please! “stop being part of the problem and become part of the solution” Take your shots.

    If it wasn’t for “global warming” it would be much colder! Search the web for “orbits and ice ages”. To quote one scientist “Another important aspect to consider is that the orbital configuration we now have is almost exactly where it was 20,000 years ago, during the Last Glacial Maximum, but this time we’re near a glacial minimum,” he said. “If you think about what the difference is between then and now, it’s not the orbital configuration, it’s the CO2.”

    Most news coverage of scientists stranded in Antarctica fail to mention their goal was to prove global warming and ice melt. Seems even in Antarctic summer the ice is now thicker and reaches farther than before. What a surprise! Many are obsessed with warming. If they bothered to include known causes of cooling, ie. ice ages, they would find that warming is on hold. But only for a short while. Because we should be in an ice age now, off setting the greenhouse effect. Eventually temperatures will rise as green house effect continues to drive temperatures up and eventually it will get hotter. Just not right now.

    Who’s going to this game? You got to be out of your mind to freeze your butt off just to watch a football game. With all the millions of dollars spent on players, you would think the geniuses running the show would build stadiums with domes.

    This way fans will show up, will buy food and other things and most importantly, will ENJOY the game. It will also give both teams the same advantage of playing indoors and not have weather affect it.

    MORE MONEY will be made by EVERYONE. Tickets can be cheaper because every game will sell out.

    Oh yeah and for you people that think football should be played in all kinds of weather, you’re morons. Whenever indoor playing fields are mentioned, that’s their ONLY reply, that football should be played outdoors no matter the weather.

    Usually the ones screaming this the loudest don’t even go to games, they watch on a 50 inch TV at home or in a bar like I do. You wouldn’t catch me at a game even if it was free in cold weather or any weather for that matter. I got my remote and can do rewind, slo mo and all that fancy stuff.

      I saw it on TV in Milwaukee. The wires underground designed to heat the turf failed. It was painful to see the players hit and skid on the frozen ground.

    This is the least warm of the five warm periods since the end of the Ice Age, and each has been cooler than its predecessor. We’re not warming, we’re cooling gradually in steps. The Eemian interglacial 125,000 years ago was 10 degrees F warmer than any part of our current Holocene interglacial, with sea level up to 30 feet higher. So what are these natural climate change deniers on about? Click on the chart below to enlarge it and see the natural cycles of long glacial periods and short interglacials. Puck: “What fools we simple mortals be” – Well the anthropogenic climate change ones, anyway.

    • Jasamine Molly

      “So what are these natural climate change deniers on about?” Who are you referring to? I hope it is the Global Warming bunch because denying natural climate change is just plain stupid…and you can’t fix that. Never heard them referred to as the “anthropogenic climate change” group but it fits.

      • http://strongasanoxandnearlyassmart.blogspot.com/ Michael Bruce Combs

        “Natural climate change deniers” is my term for the anthropogenic Global Warming bunch. I chose it because of their attempts (successful with the gullible main stream media) to label skeptics “climate change deniers”, which is the exact opposite of our central skeptic position that climate is always changing – always has, always will, at least during the brief period of eternity that Earth has existence. My studies of past climate change indicates that we are in a period of global warming, only not as robust as the four that preceded it – Holocene Optimum, Minoan, Roman, and Medieval – in the past 10,000 years since the end of the Ice Age., or the even warmer Eemian interglacial 125,000 years ago. This current warming period began about 1800, ending the Little Ice Age (1350-1800AD) and predating significant increases of CO2, the trace gas that comprises 0.035% of our atmosphere (and only 3% of greenhouse gases). Warming and sea level rise in the 1800′s looks quite similar to the 1900′s, both pre- and post-1950 when the anthropogenic alarmists think global warming began. As usual, they display their climate change ignorance – their starting date for warming, 1950, is over a century after warming began. The poor darling warmists haven’t gotten a thing right for so long – 17 years of no warming, fewer strong tornados and hurricanes, a slowing rate of what has been at most modest sea level rise, expanding global sea ice, diminished glacier retreat compared to the 1800′s, and rain, snow, flooding, drought, and wildfires all within their normal range. Pacific Islands in total have increased area and show no signs of inundation – although mining coral for new roads and airports has been damaging, as well as overfishing and using explosives for “fishing”.

        “So what are these natural climate change deniers on about?” Beats me. They seem to be making much ado about nothing, as Shakespeare noted is the prime pastime of the “ignorati” (“Ignorati” are like the castrati, who lost their testicles in their work. The warmist ignorati have lost their common sense in theirs.)

        Here are a sampling of charts showing how far the science of the warmist ignorati is out of touch with reality.

    At what point is the game unnecessary? The breathing conditions alone could be serious. Also, it’s most likely the best team will not win. Postpone it, or play at a neutral field. Ticket purchasing may be a bitch, but even with the millions these guys make, this weather could be lethal. Not exactly worth enjoying if their hearts stop.

    • Username__already__exists

      Gee I don’t think anyone died during the “Ice Bowl” or the even worse “Refrigerator Bowl” between the Chargers and the Bengals in 1982 for the AFC Championship. If San Diego had come to Cincy one day later this time they might well have had a colder day to play. Forecast lows for Sunday night are -10F. If the cold gets to town early it could be even worse for the sunny S. Calif. team. Bengal players are more adapted to the cold of course so it’s a big advantage to them. I doubt you’ll convince them to give up that advantage. They do have doctors at the games to monitor the players you know. The fans might have it worse. A crazy friend of mine was at that game in 1982. He was with a group that all took their shirts off for the entire game. The tv cameras showed them time after time. SD QB, Dan Fouts said he knew they had no chance when he saw that group of crazies. He knew they couldn’t compete in a climate so much colder than what they were used to. It is football after all. They have made it a sissy game already. Now here’s a call to eliminate cold weather games. What’s next? Forfeits because of too much pollen in the air? Moving early season games from Florida to Alaska? Playing with umbrellas and rubber boots when it rains? I know. How about uniforms with their own heating and cooling systems. They could use all those old NASA spacesuits. They’re just lying around now. They could add enough pressure so that no one could possibly get hurt too. It’d be like playing in your own bubble. Heck we could all use one of those suits.

    Gore had to quickly have some solar panels added to try to at least pretend
    he wasn’t burning through more carbon than most small villages! See:

    Tip to the “experts”: just because people are complaining about something, that doesn’t mean they expect someone to do something about it.

        How do you explain the GW scientists claiming 3 years ago that there would be no more snow in North America from then on? Or that Cape cod and New York city would be under water in another 15 years? That claim was made 15 years ago claiming it would happen in 30 years.
        When these claims are made and nothing comes of them people start to take notice and see GW for what it is. A hoax!

            Here’s one article that now moves the timeline out to 2,100 You may have noticed that predictions used to be “this or that will happen in 20 or 30 years”

            Now those predictions have been run out further after they see that they don’t come true in the short time frame. No getting laughed at if your not around.

            I’m still looking for the original posting. One other thing, they say in the article I give you here that new England seas have risen 6″ in the last 100 years. That’s bull.

            hey sweetie pie, I have a question for you. Why would they change from global warming to climate change? That was the perfect name if they were right. However, once they realized the earth wasn’t warming as they predicted, they changed the name. climate change is much more vague and allows them to slide with their predictions. They can also point to just about any major weather event and claim Climate change.
            I hope you see how much you’ve been duped before you leave this planet. You’ll be the one embarrassed.

          • vacmancan

            Mike sweetheart, I’ll type extra slow so you can understand this. When the globe warms up, it’s called global warming. Are you with me so far? When the globe warms up it causes the climate to change, we call that climate change. Get the idea?

            Hey cupcake, someday you’ll figure it all out. All it is outside is weather. it changes from year to year. Some are warmer, some are colder.
            One thing I’d like you to consider. Al Gore admitted 40% of what he calls manmade CO2 is produced by third world countries heating their homes and cooking their food with wood. 40%! that’s a major portion. I don’t see that changing anytime in the next century or two. Lets say we were able to stop 10% of manmade CO2. Compared to CO2 produced by decomposition of forestry around the world and the CO2 released from the warming of the oceans it’s a drop in the bucket and would have no negligible effect. 10% would also be a long shot.
            Also, do you know what percentage of CO2 is in the atmosphere? .039% It’s a trace gas and it’s a hoax that this is causing any rise in the climate.

    You have to love the delicious irony of a boatload of junk scientists frozen in the ice due to “anthropogenic global WARMING”. Oh, right it’s “climate change” now. You know, where warming equals cooling and changes that take hundreds of millennia happen in five years. The last retreat of the ice caps 50,000 years ago must have been due to the last of the Neanderthals driving around in Escalades. Hate to break to all the Al Gore kool aid drinkers…there is not one VALID study (non agenda driven, place the temperature monitor on a hot roof study) validating this whack-tard nonsense.

    If such a thing exists why doesn’t it work in the summer? You never hear reporters saying that it’s 80 degrees out, but with the wind chill factor it feels like 60. Instead they have to make 80 seem more interesting so they add humidity to it and call it the heat index. With high humidity the magical heat index makes 80 feel like 142 or some such silly number.
    It’s all just sensationalism, so stop with the damned wind chill factor!

    i see that many of us have woken up and smelled the coffee. The media’s fascistic grip on us hasn’t worked. They may control the airwaves, but not our minds. I DON’T LOVE BIG BROTHER!
