Algore's State Hit With 16 Inches Of Snow -- Warmists Predicted More Snow; Ski Lifts Opening In The East -- November 1, 2014

This was yesterday:
Global Warming
Climate Change
Extreme Weather
Ice Age Now

Headlines today suggest an earlier winter than some had expected with CO2 levels exceeding  400 ppm:

Today: earliest record snow in South Carolina. The Weather Channel is reporting:
Saturday morning, a record early-in-season snow coated parts of South Carolina to usher in the month of November.
Snow was observed as far south and east as Columbia, the earliest flakes on record in the city. A couple inches of snow coated grassy areas near Greenville and Pelion, South Carolina. Power lines were downed in Greenville, Greenwood, and Lexington Counties due to the combination of strong winds and wet snow accumulations.
Four to five inches of snow was reported in Asheville, North Carolina while 2.5 inches was measured in Boone, North Carolina. Seven inches was measured near Marshall, North Carolina (2280' elevation). 
Mt. LeConte, Tennessee (6400' elevation) measured 16 inches of snow. Numerous roads were shut down in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including U.S. 441.
The UN will report today that AGW is not settled science. The AP is reporting:
The IPCC says scientists are now 95 percent certain that the buildup of such gases from the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation is the main cause of warming seen since the middle of the 20th century.
The UN used to say "100% certain." As in "settled science."

I wonder if the report will mention that there has been no evidence of warming for 19 years and all agree that current cooling trend is likely to last 35 more years.

Meanwhile, South Carolina records earliest snowfall in 100 years.

Why The 1,400-Year Cutoff?

I always enjoy the UN reports on global warming. The most recent report, issued in October/November, 2014, says: "The period from 1983 to 2012, it says, was likely the warmest 30 year period of the last 1,400 years."

I was curious about why the "chose" 1,400 years. Humans (Homo sapiens) have been around for 250,000 years. It is well know that in "recent history" the most significant period of global warming was during the Viking Age. The Viking Age (793 - 1066 A.D.) was just before the, 1,400-year cut-off by the UN. Another inconvenient truth.
