How much did the TOTAL shutdown financially hurt the city? The other important question is: if computer models cannot accurately predict an occurrence within a 12-hour period, how can they predict long-term climate for 100 years? The answer, of course, is they can’t, they’ve never accurately predicted any climate and this is the first thing you should look for in any article on global warming: was is done with computer models?
So the NYC blizzard is a big bust, although the weather is awful on the New England coast. Mayor Bill De Blasio seemed to be enjoying himself yesterday shutting down everything for the ‘historic’ NYC blizzard. I guess it makes him look important and all Big Daddy, looking out for his city, unlike his recent remarks vilifying the police for making his biracial son scared to go out on the streets at night, afraid some white cop will up and shoot him for no reason since evidently De Blasio’s too dumb to realize his son is far more likely to get attacked by a young black man.
De Blasio’s also a big AGW freak but at least he didn’t shame himself yesterday like his fellow liberal Democrat mayor in Bridgeport, CT, who called Al Sharpton during his MSNBC farce of a show to commend him for working against climate change. Now that’s dumb on numerous levels. http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/01/26/mayor-thanks-sharpton-for-climate-change-work-during-blizzard-report/
Kate at Small Dead Animals [link on my blogroll, http://smalldeadanimals.com ] is drawing attention to an old movie during a previous blizzard that’s striking not only because it’s a real blizzard – you can see the wind blowing and the piles of snow – but also because there’s lots of action. Nobody shut the city down. Were New Yorkers tougher then or simply free from nanny-state leaders?
It’s a short film [1:39] and fun to watch. Be sure to watch it all
