The Gore Effect: Lecture on So-Called Climate Change Cancelled Due to Blizzard

Posted by on Mar 13, 2014 at 8:18 am

You can pretty much set your watch to these things. Seemingly whenever these pinheads schedule a lecture on alleged climate change in the winter you can guarantee snow will soon be falling.

Concerned about climate change? Then you’ll want to check out Catherine Potvin‘s lecture at the University of Windsor this week.

Potvin — a plant biologist at McGill University — is an award-winning expert on tropical forest ecology and conservation.

She’ll be talking about halting deforestation in the tropics — one of the strategies that’s hoped to mitigate the changes that industrialization is wreaking upon the Earth’s climate.

Hold on a minute there, sister.

You may be tempted to snicker at the irony that a discussion on climate change at the University of Windsor was called off due to Wednesday’s wild weather.

But plant biologist Catherine Potvin’s afternoon lecture was only one of many special events and regularly scheduled activities that were shut down by the sudden snowstorm.

Not only are we snickering, we’re also pointing and laughing.

The bad news is that Windsor utterly smashed its winter snowfall record on Wednesday. The really bad news? This may not be the last blast of the year.

According to Environment Canada’s weather hotline, the March 12 snowfall total as of 9:30 p.m. at Windsor Airport was 12 centimetres — more than enough for this winter’s snowfall total to bust the previous all-time record.

“It’s a lot of snow, for sure,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson earlier in the day. “Unfortunately, given the forecast over the next couple of weeks, we could still be adding to it after that.”

Record snowfall is also climate change or something.

    I can buy into massive deforestation as a contributor to climate change long before man-made carbon emissions.

    Interesting – deforestation in the tropics could be a legit topic, but couple it with “Climate Change” and I assume its just more of the same bs.

    Hint to scientists: stay away from the Climate Change brand if you want to taken seriously. The alarmists have perverted science, and real science is suffering as a result. You might as well co-author a paper with an astrologist.

    Heh. This sort of thing is why they switched from Global Warming to Climate Change.

    Be grateful for global warming. Think how much colder this winter would have been without it.
