Temperatures soared to the balmy and Spring-like mid-sixties today in Kansas City.

Police attempted to spin the nearly record-breaking weather by, once again and continually revealing their desire to file away citizens, encouraging people to stay indoors for the foreseeable future:

@kcpolice: "When it's 64 degrees in Kansas City in January, nothing good is going to happen afterward. Keep an eye on the weather for this weekend and stay off the roads when it gets nasty."

Meanwhile, the track record of local weather newsies is historically abysmal and the upcoming ice follies might or might not bring this town to a standstill.

Here's a quick overview of predictions for posterity:

KSHB: Kansas City-area authorities begin preparations for approaching winter storm

Fox4: Crews prepare for weekend ice and snow throughout metro

KMBC: Wintry mix expected Friday; winter storm watch issued

And so we ask . . .


Remember, at the conclusion of last year dozens of Kansas City NEXTGEN protesters advocated for The Green New Deal on City Hall steps and some of them were wearing shorts in December . . .

At the very least, hottie Rhian revels that dressing for these new Winter temperatures is a challenge.

And so, we share these worthwhile global climate change news links from "many sides" for further edification:

Fighting Fire Future

Here's how climate change may make Australia's wildfires more common

Australia's fire season normally peaks in late January - but as of January 2020, wildfires have already been raging in the country for four months, especially in the east. So far, the fires have destroyed more than 1,300 homes, burned about 6 million hectares and killed at least 24 people.

Fueling The Debate

As Australia burns, its leaders are clinging to coal

The devastating bushfires across Australia have cemented the fact that the country is on the front lines of a major climate-linked disaster, one that scientists saw coming and one that will only get worse from here. The fires have already torched an area larger than West Virginia, destroyed 2,000 homes, and killed at least 26 people since igniting in September.

Global Burning Sensation

How the world has responded to Australia's fires

The world has watched with horror as bushfires have torn across Australia, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. The blazes have razed almost 2,000 homes, and killed at least 25 people and hundreds of millions of animals since they began in September.

Spitting Hot Fire

Celebrities, activists using Australia bushfire crisis to push dangerous climate change myth: Devine

Celebrities and posturing greenies the world over have seized the opportunity of Australia's bushfire catastrophe to push the dangerous myth that climate change is to blame. "When one country faces a climate disaster, we all face a climate disaster," Cate Blanchett declared at the Golden Globes on Sunday. "Make no mistake.

Prez Trump Now Believes

Trump Admits Climate Change Is 'Not a Hoax' After Proposing Rollback of Environmental Law

President Trump said during a White House briefing on Thursday that he is a "big believer" in climate change and that it is "not a hoax" soon after his administration announced a plan to overhaul an environmental policy act. When asked by a White House pool reporter if he believes climate change is a hoax, the president said, "No, no.

Can The World Adapt?!?

Russian government sees the sunny side in climate change

Russia is putting a positive spin on climate change. In a document published on a government website last weekend, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev outlined a "national adaptation plan" that describes the potential benefits of global warming even as the country seeks to cope with its adverse effects.

Investing In The Future

World's largest asset manager BlackRock joins $41 trillion climate-change investing pact

By BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager with more than $6.8 trillion under its control, becomes the latest signatory to Climate Action 100+, an influential big-money pact that's pushing - although with spotty results so far - many of the world's largest greenhouse-gas emitters to take action on man-made climate change.

Life Lesson & The Real World

The Concession to Climate Change I Will Not Make

On one level, my answer to "How can you have a child now?" is simple. I have never been tempted to think we should all stop having children and disappear. Part of the reason climate change is so terrible is the threat it poses to human life and culture, and I want to help them go on.

You decide . . .

Glad to see the President switched courses on climate change. But it seems like he'll switch again if it ever came down to it.

^^^ He can say whatever he wants but pulling out of the Paris climate accord was the right decision and I applaud him for it!

Another Midtown Mom said...

^^^^ Excellent point.

And I certainly hope that the the Kansas City "meteorologists" are wrong about the ice storm. Those can turn out badly for everyone. They're dangerous and we could DEFINITELY do without all that.

I hope they're just trying to drum up ratings. LOL!

"Rapture definitely happening tomorrow," climate scientist insists. "And if it doesn't, then for sure within the next, I don't know, 50, 100, 1,000 years maximum. Just know it's happening."

And Darwin smiled from heaven as Jedediah Britton-Purdy took this as concrete evidence to act upon decades of self-loathing and eliminate his family from the gene pool.

Bring it. I have enough drugs and whiskey to last for a week of hard partying. I have three sluts within a couple of blocks I can fuck whoever I want. A quarter of beef in my freezer and a 4” lift on my truck.

@ 8:49 60's and 70's in January in Missouri has been going on for more years than you have been around. Why do you think they call it record highs and record lows. So I think you are an imbecile, just like the people on city hall steps who want a green new deal but after their protests they leave the most trash.

If the temperature actually hit 64 today then it tied a record from 1902, 118 years ago, you sissy chicken littles need to get a grip. Don’t you people know how to look this crap up or are you really that stupid...... never mind, you are.

Just to head off any other attempts at climate change I’ll go ahead and give you the record high for tomorrow too, 65 degrees set in 1911, you know, at the height of the industrial complex! Hahahahaha!

Anonymous said...

^^^^^ What's the "industrial complex" ??

Do you mean industrial revolution?

Please go back to school. You might make some new friends.

Jimbo Fatfuck, local expert said...

Since it was really warm once back in the past I know that the record highs worldwide every year recently are just totally normal occurrences.

It's what the man named Tucker told me on the news and I know he's real smart with the science stuff.

Everyone is confusing weather with climate.

The amount of carbon in the atmosphere is at historical highs. We did that. It isn't going to magically go away all by itself. The climate activists would simply like you to stop doing this.

No one wants to do anything difficult because they are focused on "their fantasies of continual economic growth".

We are destroying the planet. We should stop doing that.

@5:16 states "Everyone is confusing weather with climate.
The amount of carbon in the atmosphere is at historical highs. We did that."
References for these statements are needed.

On the other hand people know it is cold outside when they go outside and it is cold.

Internet keyboard warriors who have never taken more than remedial hs science classes pretending they know more than people who actually do science for a living. Nice.
