Russia cuts gas supplies to Europe for a 3rd straight day, needing the fuel itself as there is no letup in the particularly harsh winter there. Unlike 2009 - when supplies were cut over pricing disputes - EU states have improved their storage facilities and ability to move gas about. Gazprom (OGZPY.PK) +17.8% YTD.

    Show your ignorance much? Whether you believe in global warming or not is your decision but obviously you have not spent any time studying the arguments that global warming is indeed taking place. If you had you would know that harsh winters are believed to be the result of warmer seas surrounding land (by the global warming "alarmists").

     

    And yes I know that russia is not europe but i hope you get the idea.

     

    Here is a quote "Experts are convinced that heavy snowfalls are due to higher temperatures in the seas surrounding Europe. More water evaporates;air humidity is higher and leads to more precipitation and snow. However, on the long run climatologists predict milder winters for the future."

     

    Also, to make your judgement based on one harsh winter is just as ignorant as anyone who decides that global warming is real based on their experience of "recent warmer weather".

     

    You might want to bone up on the subject if you want to make comments on global warming.

    DShultz, "bone up on the subject", eh? And on what basis does "climatoligists predict" have credibility? If the predictions are based on modern climate "models", I am not aware that any of those have undergone verification and validation, from the standpoints of either science or numerical methods.

     

    A couple of links for thought (or perhaps volatile tinder to stoke warming thoughts):

    you might bone up on your reading comprehension skills.

     

    Never said "climatologists predict" had any credibility. The point I was making was that to say global warming is BS based on one particularly severe winter in russia shows WYOSTOCKS ignorance to the views and opinions of those who believe it is really occurring.

     

    Try reading this sentence again, slowly.
