We haven't been keeping records for the entire history of planet earth for us to recognize a genuine worrisome change in climate. The university in the UK was found to using fraudulent data on how human activity and its affect on climate. If human's were responsible then I should be able to travel to Exeter far easier than I can already. It is 50 minutes by car. It takes 1 and a half hours by train.

The BBC are known for being a liberal corporation and consequently there is another program on this issue on BBC2 this week. Surprise surprise, the left leaning publication The Radio Times gives it a write up. So human activity is responsible for global warming is it? So why did the BBC sent 20 reporters and camera crews to film the Chilian mine rescue? Why doesn't The Radio Times stop wasting paper on its weekly TV magazine and go online instead? You don't hear the editor complaining about all the chopped trees being utilized on its publication do you? Hippocaites, the lot of them.

Maybe they know who or what a Hippocaites is.

I don't know.

Do you check the reliability of your sources?

so, why the hell are you posting things that pretty much dispute your argument?

Could you please explain why you think that record snows indicate a fault in the argument for global warming? Is your thinking that if global warming is real, then our winters would be milder? If so, I can understand that impulse, but it's misguided.

Why Global Warming Can Mean Harsher Winter Weather: Scientific American

Quote:
“You can’t tell much about the climate or where it’s headed by focusing on a particularly frigid day, or season, or year, even,” writes Eoin O’Carroll of the Christian Science Monitor. “It’s all in the long-term trends,” concurs Dr. Gavin Schmidt, a climatologist at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

Most scientists agree that we need to differentiate between weather and climate. The NOAA defines climate as the average of weather over at least a 30-year period. So periodic aberrations—like the harsh winter storms ravaging the Southeast and other parts of the country this winter—do not call the science of human-induced global warming into question.

The flip side of the question, of course, is whether global warming is at least partly to blame for especially harsh winter weather. As we pointed out in a recent EarthTalk column, warmer temperatures in the winter of 2006 caused Lake Erie to not freeze for the first time in its history. This actually led to increased snowfalls because more evaporating water from the lake was available for precipitation.

But while more extreme weather events of all kinds—from snowstorms to hurricanes to droughts—are likely side effects of a climate in transition, most scientists maintain that any year-to-year variation in weather cannot be linked directly to either a warming or cooling climate.

Even most global warming skeptics agree that a specific cold snap or freak storm doesn’t have any bearing on whether or not the climate problem is real.
One such skeptic, Jimmy Hogan of the Rational Environmentalist website writes, “If we are throwing out anecdotal evidence that refutes global warming we must at the same time throw out anecdotal evidence that supports it.”
(bold emphasis mine)

Also, noting the above example of Lake Erie, keep in mind that the link you posted is about record snows, not record lows.

Not to mention, you DO need warm, moist air to help create storms. The warmer the air against the cold air that comes with it, the stronger the system and storms can be. Doesn't anyone else notice that the temperature tends to be warmer right before a storm? Not always, of course, there are exceptions, but still...

Back up?

That was not my question.

"Do you check the reliability of your sources?"

Why?

The links I posted are open to view.

Why don't you post a link here to prove we will all die from global warming.

I'm very much in favor of open debate and discussion, but let's be a little more open to hearing both sides.
