Lake Superior is Freezing Over 

Lake Superior last froze over in 2003. It has now, again, frozen over. Go here to see photo by NOAA. The frequency of freeze overs has historically been around once every 20 years. Now, in the last decade, we have seen two freeze overs. So what about climate change aka global warming?

"Due to the recent cold spell and below normal temperatures for much of the winter of 2008-2009, ice covers nearly all of Lake Superior. Only small areas of open water remain. This image was taken on Tuesday, March 3rd. If arctic air does not return in the next couple of weeks, it is likely that this will be the day of maximum ice cover on Lake Superior for this winter as warmer weather and periods of stronger winds through the end of this week will cause open water areas to expand."

While many environmentalists will argue that this is an exception, there are far more "exceptions" occurring and the earth's temperature has been cooling since 1995. Exceptions are exceptions until they become norms. Global warming is a hoax as is its related "cause," CO2.

I've asked a few greens who believe "CO2 is bad" if they're willing to stop breathing? They never reply, "Yes." Hmm wonder why? CO2 problems would disappear if all animals were gone. Then again, plants would disappear, too because, as my fourth graders knew. plants release oxygen for animals and animals (including humans) release CO2 for plants.
