Global warming nuts find something else to freak out about

A group of scientists people who rely on global warming fear-mongering to make a living are sounding their latest alarm. It seems the Great Lakes just ain't freezing over like they used to.
Ice cover on the Great Lakes has declined more than 30 percent since the 1970s, leaving the world's largest system of freshwater lakes open to evaporation and lower water levels, according to scientists associated with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
In other news, a new study shows that timing is everything:

Lake Superior last froze over in 2003. It has now, again, frozen over. The frequency of freeze overs has historically been around once every 20 years. Now, in the last decade, we have seen two freeze overs.

Nutballs. My brother sent me a link with pics from Pillar Point, which is just down the road from the summer place. Nah, no ice.

surveys the loopy moonbats and the sceptical sites each day. A great resource to scan when you're able to drag yourself away from that Bar of Bliss...

The wind pushed it east across the lake, until it hit the peninsula. :)

Dunno if they reference it in the article, but the ice piles were apparently 30-40 feet high in places.

Small wonder it's your summer place.
