- On The Coldest Day In America In 20 Years, Here Are Al Gore’s Stupidest Global Warming Quotes (The American Dream, Jan 5, 2014):
America could actually use some global warming right about now. It is being projected that low temperatures across the Midwest could be 30 to 50 degrees below average on Monday morning. On Sunday, fans that attempted to tailgate before the playoff game between the 49ers and the Packers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin were discovering that their beers were actually turning to ice before they could drink them. That is cold. But things are going to get really chilly when nightfall arrives. In fact, it is being projected that much of the nation will experience wind chill temperatures of more than 40 degrees below zero, and wind chill temperatures of more than 50 degrees below zero are expected in parts of North Dakota and Minnesota. The weather is expected to be so cold that the governor of Minnesota has actually decided to close public schools statewide on Monday. The last time that happened was back in 1997. The reason why the governor of Minnesota did this is because when temperatures get this low they can literally be life threatening. When wind chill temperatures get down to about 50 below zero, if your skin is exposed you can literally develop frostbite in about five minutes. This is being called the coldest day in America in 20 years, and these cold temperatures have many Americans wondering what ever happened to all of that “global warming” that Al Gore and other “climate scientists” have been warning us about for so many years.

YouTube Added: Dec 29, 2013
15 is normal. We are seeing counts as high as 100-200 across the nation, yet we see NO MENTION in the media.
The person who took these readings is a nuclear engineer and operated submarine reactors BEFORE I even met him at Cal Poly. He is a long time friend and is awake. He is by far the MOST qualified of ANYONE on Youtube to speak on this subject. I will follow up this video with verification of his credentials and more readings for those who wish to doubt these findings or feel as though their ‘sources’ who they claim are ‘authorities’ are more qualified, while trying to discredit these.
His measurements are correct and true. When he worked in the reactor, background radiation was 30 cpms! He measured radiation daily for years and knows what he is doing. Do not believe those who wish to tell you that this is not real, minimize the severity of this problem or try to discredit this as fear mongering. It is very real and the only way to get the word out is to continue to raise awareness. Protection of the public does not get real until EVERYONE DEMANDS CHANGE, not nitpicking each other’s findings, which divides us all. I may have John on for a video to address any questions the doubters may have regarding his measurements and to discuss his qualifications. Like I said, he IS the authority. Years of real world experience, degrees and credentials.

“The storm that began this past weekend and lasted four days broke the Jerusalem snowfall record since 1879,” says this news website. “The snow piled up to a height of 40 to 60 centimeters (16 to 23½ inches), and an especially great quantity of snow fell in the mountains of northern Israel, reaching a height of 70 centimeters (28 inches).”
These statistics demonstrate just how unique this storm was in terms of its force and its extremely low temperatures.
The blizzard cut Jerusalem off and almost completely paralyzed life in the city as of Thursday, December 12, 2013.
The electric power grid in the city collapsed because of trees that had fallen on power lines, and many people had no electricity all weekend and suffered from the freezing temperatures.”
