Shovel Time Again: More Snow Is Headed Our Way

A winter weather advisory has been issued for most of the state Saturday, with the eastern shoreline — parts of which could see 6-8 inches of snow during the day — under a winter storm watch.

After Connecticut spent much of the day Friday digging itself out from under Thursday's nor'easter — more snow is headed our way.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for much of the state Saturday. The advisory will go into effect late Saturday morning and run through to early Sunday morning.

Snowfall totals for most of the state are expected to be anywhere from 2 to 5 inches with this latest weather system.

New London County, however, which was spared the worst of this week's nor'ester, looks to bear the most significant portion of Saturday's storm.

The NWS has issued a winter storm watch for the eastern shoreline, predicting the region could see snow fall rates Saturday from 1 to 2 inches per hour, with a potential for total accumulations of up to 6 to 8 inches of snow.

"The solar component is real but not of sufficient magnitude to have driven most of the warming of the late 20th century" Pat Michaels, the former president of the American Association of State Climatologists, and current director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute. http://www.nasa.gov/topics/solarsystem/features/solar_variability.html "For the last 20 to 30 years, we believe greenhouse gases have been the dominant influence on recent climate change," said Robert Cahalan, climatologist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md Think about it... even if your facts are correct and the whole solar system is heating up then why exacerbate the issue by clogging up our atmosphere with man-made gasses? Why do people work so hard to disprove climate change when there is overwhelming peer reviewed evidence that supports the theory that man is contributing to the warming (even if it is a natural phenomenon... our influence could send it over a tipping point that we may not recover from). I hear this "oh, you believe the scientists" argument... well... yes, I do! I'm not a climatologist so I rely on the scientific community to make my opinions. Would you do your own cancer research or trust the scientific community? It is fact that 97% of all PEER REVIEWED climate reports support the fact that man is contributing to climate change (aside from any natural effects). Please provide me evidence otherwise... and please do not cite the "Oregon Petition" and the 31,000 mostly bogus signatures. In my opinion this issue has become split along party lines which is so unfortunate. Who cares if you lean right or left... why destroy the earth? Did Al Gore get rich off spreading the mesage? Sure... but who cares. The message is real and needs to be spread. Glenn Beck could spread it for all I care :)

Wow, you are the king of pontification, you make a claim and then cannot back it up and then proceed to babble on anyway. The whole solar system is warming, that is a fact. Let people judge if it's a coincidence or not.

"There are lies, there are great lies and then there are statistics." Benjamin Disraeli. We now have scientific lies and distortions driven by political agendas that people who can't count to eleven with their shoes on insist are unassailable "science" in a "settled debate."

There is no debate about the fact that burning carbon based fuels is creating climate change. It comes down to whether or not anyone wants to pay the cost of changing the source of the energy we use. I just added more insulation to my house and bought new, highly insulated garage doors. I will replace my windows and will add solar panels in the future. I do walk or ride my bike when feasible. Electric cars only shift the burden of energy production to the oil and gas and coal companies. I want to spend limited tax dollars on alternative energies that will strategically make the USA another Saudi Arabia and create jobs here at home. I will not engage in a non debate on a false battlefield whose ground was chosen by people who do ultimately do not want to change what they do or how much it costs them to do it.

I also wish we had more nuclear power plants but the cost and storage of the waste creates too much political backlash and ultimately people don't care. They'd rather just complain.
