Love watching how people uneducated seem to think that cold weather negates the 'global warming' theory.

Guess what people.  'Global' warming doesn't equal 'United States' warming.

Sorry...I couldn't resist.

Uneducated? How would you know what my education is BigOkie? Please, do tell. I'm interested in knowing what I know as compared to what I don't know. What degrees I may hold as compared to not. So BigOkie, please do enlighten all of us, what is my education??!! I'll be awaiting your reply. Have a happy day! :-)

I think it's a PHD. :grin:

Isn't someone on this forum studying this effect?

One (or more) of the various news articles I read discussed that.  I've also read discussion that it helps lake levels rise by reducing evaporation.

On the Marine forecast on NOAA weather radio, they are saying "wave height omitted due to ice coverage" on almost all the lake forecasts now.


I have been watching it change every day and in a few days (or now as the image is from the 12th, they may be fully ice covered
