Global Warming Cancels Plattsburgh, New York, Winter Carnival…Because Of “Extreme Cold”!

Winter carnivals are popular, and naturally organizers hope to get cold and snow to make sure they go well.

Years ago global warming activists were warning that the days of winter carnivals were numbered, and that snow would be soon a thing of the past. Winter carnivals faced cancellations due to missing snow and balmy weather caused by manmade climate change.

This year the predictions of cancellation have finally come true – at least in Plattsburg, New York, this weekend. According to organizers, its scheduled annual carnival has been canceled – not because of a lack of snow and warm weather, but rather because of extreme cold. See forecast here.

Hat-tip: Indomitable Snowman

Temperatures this Saturday are forecast to plummet close to -30°C. reports that the Carnival Committee spokesperson Allsion Hulbert Bruce says the decision was made on Thursday because they don’t want their volunteers or area families “exposed to the elements this weekend” … “We just think it’s safer for everyone.”

    Your embedded Accuweather forecast seems to have blown away. Try this one and check out the wind chill warning link. Tonight -15F to -25F with wind chills -30F to -45F.

  2. John F. Hultquist

    The NYC Central Park Conservancy canceled an ice festival planned for Saturday because the wind chill index is expected to drop into the minus teens {F.}.

    The very cold air is short term. Gone in a day, but not forgotten.

    Hi from Oz. Does the spokesman’s statement mean that the Plattsburg Carnival Committee wants to create a ‘safe place’ to protect families from the ‘elements’ now? (sarc)

    -22 DEG F.

    Yeah, that’s cold! And if there’s a wind chill with that, look out.

    But that’s probably at night, and during the day it must have risen to at least a balmy -10.

    Here’s a cold blast from the past, 2 years ago next Friday.

    When asked to comment, a local resident remarked.

    And this morning the BBC weather forecaster said we were not to worry that the temperature in the UK might go down to minus 7 degrees, as we would be quite safe if we wrapped up really warm.

  7. David Appell

    And what is the long-term trend in temperatures for Plattsburg NY?

    A real science blogger would have looked it up and included it in his post.

    1. AndyG55

      Morrisville, semi-rural near Plattsburgh, not too much UHI effect

      Basically steady , but dropping rapidly the last couple of years.

      Or you can do as the rotten apple does and uses “adjusted” fabrication.

      1. sod

        “Morrisville, semi-rural near Plattsburgh, not too much UHI effect”

        Sorry, but that data does not make any sense at all. Did you really post that?

        So the average of years has about +8°C temperature, but there also are years with an average of -9°C?

        Those were the years without summer and constant snow?

        If i get into a debate about adjustments and raw data in the future, i will use this example as the masterpiece of absurdity of raw data.

        1. AndyG55

          Poor sod, no warming trend. Does that upset you.

          Send the data to Gavin et al.. they will fix it for you. 😉

        2. AndyG55

          And because I know you don’t have the intelligence to figure it out for yourself..

          …that blip is caused by missing data.

          USHCN has LOTS of that. 😉

        3. AndyG55

          And just to show why Gavin et al have to COOL the past so much……

        If you don’t adjust for biases, you are using incorrect data that shows nothing (but biases).

        1. yonason

          “If you don’t adjust for biases, you are using incorrect data that shows nothing (but biases).” – David Appell

          Adjusting data when there is no bias is FRAUD, and under these circumstances a crime.

          “The greatest changes in the new NOAA surface temperature analysis is to the ocean temperatures since 1998. This seems rather ironic, since this is the period where there is the greatest coverage of data with the highest quality of measurements – ARGO buoys and satellites don’t show a warming trend. Nevertheless, the NOAA team finds a substantial increase in the ocean surface temperature anomaly trend since 1998.” – Judith Curry

          NOAA and other govt agencies around the world are making up fictitious biases to adjust for, just so they can show modern warming.

        2. AndyG55

          And when you massively adjust for imagined bias, your result is a LIE and a scam.. ie GISS !!

    2. AndyG55

      Only a rabid yapping AGW Chihuahua would choose an airport as an indicator of real world temperature trends..

      but that DA for you. !

    Well golly gee, look what Google found!

    Temperature trends for Plattsburg, NY, by month:

    January temperature changes 0.65°C per 100 years.
    February temperature changes 2.07°C per 100 years.

    Overall trend seems to be +0.90 C per 100 years — right in line with the global average!

    I’m sure Pierre will write a blog post with all the details. (Can’t wait.)

    1. AndyG55

      Plattsburgh is of course exactly the same size as it was in 1914. 😉

      Thanks for the great illustration of the urban UHI effect David. !

    2. AndyG55

      Or are those measurements made at the airport ? 😉

      Come on rotten apple… show us where those Plattsburgh temperatures were measured.

      1. Colorado Wellington

        Andy, I don’t think David “Hit-n-Run” Appell is coming back any time soon (the answer to your question does not fit the narrative).

        The measurements he posted are from Plattsburgh International Airport and Industrial Complex which until 1995 was Plattsburgh AFB (Strategic Air Command base).

        One must wonder how the local temperatures have changed at this oldest military post in the United States since the federal government bought the first green acres in 1814. Do you think CO2 groupies could imagine that continuous development and paving the AFB runways in mid-20th century could have caused an UHI effect?

        A lot of concrete there.

        Google is a bitch, David. 😀

        1. David Appell

          Let’s see your calculation of the Plattsburgh AFB weather station’s UHI by comparing it to other nearby stations.

          You can post it here.

          1. AndyG55

            I did already, putz. NO WARMING !!

      2. David Appell

        Why can’t you look up where the measurements are done? Do I have to do anything for you?

        Plattsburgh is quite a small town (pop only 20,000), and in the middle of nowhere. I doubt it would have much of any UHI anyway.

        1. yonason

          “Do I have to do anything for you?” – David Appell

          You don’t need to do anything for us, bur for yourself. You are making assertion, so you are the one obligated to provide supporting material. If you want to persuade us you are telling the truth, you MUST address our concerns. Otherwise what incentive do we have to believe you. Behaving like a spoiled child ain’t gonna cut it.

          You never got an advanced degree, did you? Because if you had, doing that would be second nature.

  9. AndyG55

    Irregardless… we know exactly what is happening in the USA. Basically zero trend since accurate, untampered measurements started.

    Warming in the US is a thing of the past.

    1. David Appell

      If you don’t adjust for known biases, you get incorrect results.

      Here’s an excellent primer for you on temperature adjustments. Read it — all of it.

      1. AndyG55

        No accounting for AGW bias.. its everywhere. and is FAKE !!

      2. AndyG55

        Arse-technica is another rabid AGW site.. they cite crap from Tom Karl, Zeke horsefather, etc etc..

        SkS in all but name.

    2. David Appell

      “Warming in the US is a thing of the past.”

      USA48 temperature change, properly accounting for biases, and over a climatologically relevant time period (30 years), is in fact +0.17 C/decade.

      That’s +0.90 F of warming in 30 years. It’s +1.67 F since the records began in 1895.

      Data source:

      1. yonason


        David Appell wants us to believe NOAA/NASA about temperatures, when they are known to be deliberately perverting the data to create the appearance of unprecedented modern warming.
        (note that a failure to respond to a freedom of information act IS a violation of the law)

      2. AndyG55

        Stupid apple STILL thinks climate is linear.

        OMG but you are a fool . !!!

      3. AndyG55

        Lets have a look at that TOTALLY UNBIASED, reliable data from the satellites and surface temps again, shall we..

        US temps are going NOWHERE..

        Get over it. The data is totally against your childish ranting.

      4. AndyG55

        UAH has a NEGATIVE TREND this century.

        We all know you absolutely HAVE to include the step up from the 1997-2001 El Nino to show ANY WARMING AT ALL in the only reliable climate data.

        That El Nino is all you have… and your continued use of it shows up your total IGNORANCE of anything to do with global climate factors. PATHETIC really.

        But you are only a low-end fiction journalist, can’t expect much more from you.

        1. AndyG55

          And of course everyone KNOWS that USHCN had a NEGATIVE trend since the El Nino (before it was hidden in Sept 2014)

      5. AndyG55

        You do know that when Santer, or was it Trenberth, used that 30 year period meme, they actually knew about the 60 periods in the ocean cycles and that they could start it around 1980, the very trough of the AMO cycle?

        The rotten apple was CONNED right from the very start !!

        Not very bright, are you DA… and very GULLIBLE !!
