November snowfall records tumble; arctic air mass follows (Examiner, Nov 11, 2014):

Yesterday morning, it looked as though heavy snow was going to affect parts of south-central Minnesota. That snow came with a vengeance, especially to the northwest of the Minneapolis, MN area and then northeastward to the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan. St. Cloud, MN broke a daily snowfall record, as well as a 24-hour November snowfall record with 13.2 inches of snow on Nov. 10, 2014 (Fig. 1). The old daily snowfall record was set in 1946 (4.3 inches); the old 24-hour November snowfall record was 12.0 inches set in 1898.

Due to the magnitude of yesterday’s snowfall, melted precipitation (the amount of liquid water in the snow) measured 1.24 inches at St. Cloud, MN. This broke the record daily liquid precipitation record for the day (0.67 inches set in 1998). Other records likely fell, but were not yet reported through the evening hours of Nov. 11, 2014.

Earliest And Deepest Snowfalls In More Than 100 Years In Southeastern U.S.

Earliest and deepest snowfalls in more than 100 years in Southeastern U.S. (Ice Age Now, Nov 3, 2014):

The snow, combined with record low temps, “is drawing predictions of a new mini ice age,” says Breitbart.com.

Tennessee, North and South Carolina and Georgia all saw unexpected snow, in some places almost two feet deep.

According to the Climatology Office in South Carolina, Concord, South Carolina has broken a 125-year record for the earliest snow seen. And Columbia, South Carolina’s capital, broke a 129-year record.

In fact, the state has already doubled its expected annual snowfall – more than 1½ months before any snow was even expected.

Professor Emeritus Hal Lewis Resigns From American Physical Society … Exposing ‘The Global Warming Scam’

From the letter:

“It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist.”


Harold Lewis is Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara, former Chairman; Former member Defense Science Board, chmn of Technology panel; Chairman DSB study on Nuclear Winter; Former member Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards; Former member, President’s Nuclear Safety Oversight Committee; Chairman APS study on Nuclear Reactor Safety Chairman Risk Assessment Review Group; Co-founder and former Chairman of JASON; Former member USAF Scientific Advisory Board; Served in US Navy in WW II; books: Technological Risk (about, surprise, technological risk) and Why Flip a Coin (about decision making)

Professor Emeritus Hal Lewis Resigns from American Physical Society (Telegraph, Oct 9, 2014):

The following is a letter to the American Physical Society released to the public by Professor Emiritus of physics Hal Lewis of the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Dear Curt:

When I first joined the American Physical Society sixty-seven years ago it was much smaller, much gentler, and as yet uncorrupted by the money flood (a threat against which Dwight Eisenhower warned a half-century ago).
