Once again the Federal government is shutting down as torrential snow and ice engulf the nation’s capital, prompting the House and Senate to cancel votes scheduled for Monday evening. The nation’s capital has declared a snow emergency that went into effect at 7 AM Monday.
Virginia declared a state of emergency Monday morning allowing state agencies to prepare to assist local governments in responding to the storm. Nearly 2,500 customers were without power around 8 AM Monday, mostly in northern Virginia; no word on how long the power outages will last.
I find it ironic that in an administration so entrenched in global warming ideology, the nation has been overwhelmed by record snow and freezing temperatures. Last month, the president announced he is arranging a United Nations Summit on global warming next year despite indications there is no global warming. Recently, Obama tied the drought in California to global warming, and Secretary of State John Kerry said that global warming was as dangerous as the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Ironically, Kerry feels global warming is the “greatest challenge of our generation.”
The record-shattering cold in the northern United States is a result of an Arctic cold front, while a moisture-infused southern storm collided. According to Jason Samenow of the Capital Weather Gang, “The result is crashing temperatures, and rain changing to ice and then heavy snow. We expect 5-9 inches of snow to fall across the region through Monday afternoon on top of a slick layer of sleet.”advertisement - story continues below
And yet, in spite of national record lows, the powers that be push forward with their global warming antics.
