It was December 1954, the locale was Vermont — why was it they were dreaming of a white Christmas again?

Well as the plot of the sixty-plus years old musical play and movie White Christmas goes, it hadn’t snowed yet, and the owner of a ski lodge was in deep financial trouble.  Fortunately the proprietor, a retired general,  had some musically talented former troops come to the rescue by putting on a show to help bring people in.

Maybe it was a localized temperature gradient that affected only that lodge at the time –  you think? That must be the reason for the lack of snow because the undercurrent of so much weather reporting over the current warm weather affecting a large part of the country is the doctrine that temperatures above average must be the result of man caused climate change with CO2 pegged as the main culpret.  More responsible reports make an effort to point out that the current warming is linked to the naturally occurring cyclical phenomenon known as el Nino. But many or most leave the well accepted weather interpretation unmentioned.  The increase in cold and snow in other large sections of the country are not discussed much.

Unfortunately this world suffers from political leadership intent on using manipulated concerns based on bogus climate change data as a vehicle to impose costly regulations and world government all to the detriment of the welfare of the world’s citizens.  If only in this Christmas season more would take in not just the charity and romance message of the movie, but also that well, weather change happens:

This article from Real Science ( a great site, long a part of our blog roll) explains the situation better then we can (while also tweaking the Drudge Report).

Drudge is touting the “record heat” forecast for Christmas Eve, even though most of the country will be below normal temperature.  The best Drudge could come up with was 86 degrees at Orlando.


Christmas Eve 1955 was much warmer. Three fourths of the country was over 60 degrees, and Ashland Kansas,  Geary Oklahoma and Encinal Texas were all over 90 degrees. Fort Lauderdale was 85 degrees. All of the stations below were over 60 degrees on Christmas Eve, 1955.


Last winter, the East Coast had record cold. That was ignored because it was “less than 1% of the Earth.”  But this week, the Eastern US defines the global climate.

In Irving Berlin’s 1954 musical “White Christmas” – the story line was 70 degrees in Vermont on Christmas eve and no snow. That was why they were “Dreaming of a White Christmas”

We note that pretty much the whole country experienced the “unusual” warmth. What might have been blamed back then?

Anyway, Merry Christmas from
