    "Global warming lecture postponed due to snow in Texas"

    "Wow! Never before in recorded history has Houston had snow two years in a row. This years snowfall is the earliest ever recorded beating last years record.

    That "Gore Effect" on the weather is really predictable.

    'Global Warming Lecture Postponed Due to Cooling'

    Houston, we have a problem.

    And the problem is unusually cold weather in Houston to the extent that city had its earliest recorded snowfall on Friday. Plus much of the rest of Texas also had quite cold weather which caused the cancellation of a global warming lecture at the University of Texas in Austin.

    Here is the e-mail received by the Houston Chronicle SciGuy blogger Eric Berger:

    Global Warming lecture postponed due to cooling

    Given the travel advisories issued and the likelihood of freezing weather for the Austin area tomorrow evening, we are postponing the December 4 event, Global Warming - Lone Star Impacts. "

    Yes, Eric, welcome to the "Gore Effect." If you haven't heard of this phenomenon (although I suspect you already know about it), allow Politico to provide the definition:

    The so-called Gore Effect happens when a global warming-related event, or appearance by the former vice president and climate change crusader, Al Gore, is marked by exceedingly cold weather or unseasonably winter weather.

    Some Politico examples of the Gore Effect: March, 2007, a Capitol Hill media briefing on the Senate’s new climate bill was cancelled due to a snowstorm.

    On Oct. 22, Gore’s global warming speech at Harvard University coincided with near 125-year record-breaking low temperatures. And less than a week later, on Oct. 28, the British House of Commons held a marathon debate on global warming during London’s first October snowfall since 1922.

    And to the examples of the Gore Effect, we can now add the cancellation of that lecture on global warming due to freezing weather in Austin.

    What makes this the global warming lecture cancellation and the early snowfall in Houston so delicious (to use NewsBusters Noel Sheppard terminology), is that this weather condition closely follows a Houston Chronicle editorial which asserted that the globe is warming but made no mention of ClimateGate which was openly mocked by many Chronicle readers and chronicled here in NewsBusters."

    This is a perfect example of the amateurishness of the deniers approach to climate change.
    As i pointed out the other day (when it was 62 degrees in nyc) you dont measure climate change and global warming based on one day or one month. Its based on the temperature over the course of THE WHOLE YEAR.

    You also dont measure the earths temperatures with falty data. You say that you will have the tempitures and they will show that this will be one of the hottest years on record, yet where are all the strong hurricanes, hell where are all the hurricanes that are suppose to be cause by warmer tempitures.

    You still have not answered that question Havasaka and that tells us all that we need to know about your post.

    So which of you is lying is it all the man made global warming scientist that say global warminmg causes more and stronger hurricanes OR is it the all the man made global warming scientist that have gotten their data from land based weather stations which in 1990 2/3 of which were stoped, ALL OF THEM JUST HAPPEN TO BE IN OUTLING AREAS. That only leaves the ones in cities. They have been proven to have false data, due to the fact (and anyone that watches the news knows) cities always have a warmer temperature due to what is called the urban effect. And get this jackass as populations grow and cities get bigger so does the urban effect.
