Severe temperature swings, substantial budding out in February at northern lattitudes, the weather that's being reported. Bad signs relative to global climate change. I once thought I wouldn't see much change in my lifetime, but things are not going well in that regard...

The recent cold and snow here in the Seattle area has caused quite a turmoil, most people didnít leave their houses for a few days. I made it every day only to be nearly the only one in my work group attending for the first couple days.

Was entertaining yet disgusting to watch people hoarding food and acting rudely in the grocery store, as if the world was going to end or something. Itís typically a one or two day thing with any snow around here, so panic was the flavor of the day.
Itís always fun to watch the lifted off-road-looking trucks, leave the road due to running out of talent in the middle of an otherwise heroic maneuver...

This next week is looking to largely be the same, so am kind of hoping that people become used to it, but maybe not so they just stay off the road and make it nicer to drive around!

Oh, in your lifetime... Well, in that case, it's understandable. I thought you were saying something about four horsemen of the apocalypse.

You think people's reaction to weather is bad? Wait til you see how people react to money matters (you've seen black Friday shopping before, haven't you?)

Wow, what prescience. Do a little reading in climate science, and when you want to talk from science I'll be happy to converse. Apologies in advance if I misunderstand you.

Yeah, the general public is really well informed on the SCIENCE behind subjects such as global climate trends, CO2 trends and the like. People's reaction to any number of things has little bearing on reality...

That thread has been closed so if you want to converse about it, you may request the mod to reopen it or start a new one.

Sort of feels like Easter.
Temps are hovering about 0c, mostly -2 to +2 the last days and nights.

Normal would be variations in the area of -5 to -15c, mostly centered around -7 to -10c.

Pretty much 3rd generation social programming by corporations.

Replace the TV's with bananas , a social engineered success.
Actually talked to BYU students who studied creating rabid cunsumers
who spoke of this .. on this level !!

15th century access to limited resources was most likely more civilized.
It took something far more extreme to launch this level of mob mentality.
Another Carrington (solar) event would result in burning cities all across
N. America.

Been down to -3c MAX 2 days ago (2nd & 3rd pic) and yesterday this! Shrubs flowering!!
The shrubs that you show "flowering" are merely carrying their flower buds over winter, which is what those species do.
