The Northeast Storm of 2015


CNN says this is historic.   How much of that is actual weather and how much is media hype? 

apparently as time moves to the event the anticipation was not manifested



my take on this also on facebook

...


and me, i give a great big to those of you who still have not learned to distinguish climate from weather.

Yepp ... global stupidity & ignorance is the NEW Tower of Babel .  It has some convinced that something you see up close like weather should not be more predictable than something you see from far away with a crystal ball.  It convinces some that the Earth should always remain the same & friendly to humans despite contrary examples elsewhere in the Milky Way. It convinces some that man's puny impact is more than the Sun & it's electro-magnetic eruptions.  It convinces some that the best way for a scientist & politician to play the right-wrong game is to change the meaning of words & labels.  Let's see : global warming; global cooling; ice-age; climate change; man-made disasters; ... man-made government control of the people & industry in the name of voo doo.

well nobody can know what will happen in the future until they get there.  all we can do is to expect, anticipate, and plan as we become conscious of what is about to happen.   then we act out of fear or caution or bravado and experience the consequences ... god or bad.   afterward we judge our anticipation and planning and the actions we took in light of the consequences.  then others judge our judging .... and then the judging of the judging happens ... and then the judging of the judging of the judging .... and so on, and so on, spiraling quite out of any useful consciousness. 

me, i tend to try not to get caught up in the spiral part of the analysis ... there are plenty of people who make their living on just that sort of blaming game, eg Limbaugh  "How Could a Snowstorm That Hasn't Even Started Be Called Historic?", ... i am not one of them.

Then too there are people who make a living at the hype like Al Gore & lie

good example:  Al Gore published an expectation ... you now publish a judgement of that expectation .... i comment on that .... and on and on it goes in a spiral like holding a mirror up to a mirror.

me, i tend to try to get off that sipral ... cut it off as soon as i possibly can ... and go back to the original manifestation.  
I expect you will understand someday!


wow this  example keeps getting deeper and deeper.   Notice how the reflections have less and less detail and substance as they spiral.

Notice how the global mememe of Algore spiraled from his "expectation" & it's supportive lies to how government had to control what you do to "save the planet".
BTW, Algore's expectation expires within a year.
... that would be better in the context of a rational discussion.
Yeah! I would not call anything related to Algore rational! Good grok!


not a good start ... perhaps revisit what rational discussion actually consists of doing.
