Lighthouse turned into an eerie ice sculpture of a lighthouse.

On Lake Erie.

Beautiful and unintended.

This would be great to see in person. The scale doesn't translate in video.

The Great Lakes...so playful.

Here in WNY, we visit the Lake in the summer; it visits us for the holidays...and sticks around far too long.

Does "sculputre" indicate the remains of the lighthouse keeper is inside?

I will never again complain about cold weather in Atlanta. Wow!

Absolute, irrefudiatable proof that man-caused climate change is real and will kill us all if we don't herd all the denialists into camps within a few weeks.

Wow. Beautiful.

Brrrrrrrrr

Hmmm reported by a British newspaper? Are there any American news orgs that have interest in global non-warming stories?

edutcher said...

And these people in WI think their wether is tough.

Hah!!!!

We eat their weather for breakfast.

Calypso Facto said...

24 below zero (air temp, not wind chill) when I left Eau Claire yesterday morning, edutcher. You might want to throw that in the microwave for a few minutes before breakfasting or your tongue will stick!

The dynamic of waves. All kinds.

Power to create and destroy.

Yes, AJ, the Lamestream Media is in a conspiracy to keep the lid on this. You won't find any mention of this on local TV.

Tinfoil hats, anyone?

AJ Lynch said...

Peter:

Don't be a dickhead. I will be happy to take it back when this story is covered by Katie Couric, Brian Williams and whoever is on ABC & NPR on their nightly news show.

LOL.

And the typo is now corrected.

AJ, I'm pushing back against this nonsense, just like I pushed back against the claim that DeFazio was not identified as a Democrat in the thread above this, and edutcher's claim that Princeton would pass over the heart recipient for another Michelle Robinson. These are unthinking, knee-jerk responses.

Raise your game.

AJ Lynch said...

Defazio is a radical far left Dem liberal - everyone should know that.

I was simply saying the lamestream media will not play up this story nor suggest it may refute AGW theory. That's all I said. Though the lamestream would surely play up a 60 degree January day in Chicago as evidence in support of AGW.

Do you deny that?

Clyde said...

It's been a harsh winter so far in the eastern half of the U.S., and I just read that the U.K. is about to get hit with their worst blizzard in a century -- after having a huge snowstorm over much of the country in late November. It's going to be difficult for the warmists to keep up the facade. At this point, most people think that a little global warming sounds like a damn good idea.

Well, a cold snap in of itself does not refute any climate theory. So why should they play it up?

Stories written by journalists that relate individual weather events to climate simply broadcast the ignorance of the journalist. The fewer of those kinds of stories, the better.

I wouldn't want to stand near the lighthouse when the thaw starts. Then you get stuff like this!

BJM said...

Looks more like a white chocolate sculpture than ice...but that could be because I'm up to my azz in cookie baking.

AJ Lynch said...

Mad Man:
I agree but my point is then why does the media does play up heat waves in the summer or a 60 degree day in January? They and libs want it both ways.

MadisonMan said...

The answer? The journalists and the Editors aren't as smart as they think they are.

AJ Lynch said...

Yes but how odd that they tend to err on the side of the liberal meme of the day.

traditionalguy said...

I really loved the sneak attack by a the settled science claiming climate apparatchiks. They said that the more CO2 is produced, the warmer it should get. Instead the more CO2 that was produced the colder it has gotten. That was such an easy one to win. Why anyone still defends that total fraud is the only real mystery.
