i'm sure someone has said this before here but haven't read most of the thread and don't plan to; no disrespect(!) intended- been following the subject off & on for a long time-- it's too damn bad who ever started/spread the term "global warming" -even if that was partly the over-arching effect that, that was the term that became popularized for decades .

How many years did i intermittently turn on Limbaugh and have listen to him about penguins and polar bears enjoying the weather because of some colder than usual winters.

Yeah i remember a program they called that northward flow current of our northen eastcoast "the great conveyer belt" And talked about the Green land ice cap snow melts desalinizing the Atlantic (as tjc said) and slowing it down. gah. More intense storms, wetter and drier in other areas, and the over rise in temps.

Climate change is a pretty good term as least it brings more kind of effects into it.

I know this might not be as relevant and objective as Indy's "The Coldest Month of April in 100 years" expose he posted, but I figure it was worth sharing. The data was also compiled by "scientists" as opposed to "not scientists" or "obviously not statisticians", so take it all with a grain of salt

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Levels Highest in 3 Million Years

Well that's not really fair. We all know that scientist in general are socialist at best, but most are communists. A certain FYMer taught us this. I prefer the surveys like the one posted in here a few years ago(an online one at that) where anyone with a bachelor of science(architecture to psychology, it didn't matter) can weigh in and give their opinion, and apparently it's true; there is no consensus about climate change. So please stop giving us this bs, we all can go outside and feel the weather.

Climate change is settled science, whether its convenient for us or not.

Just because there's an opposing view doesn't mean it has any merit.

I diagree and others disagree also.

It's amazing to me that, although three fourth of our planet is covered
in water, a vey small portion of industrialized countries are blamed with wrecking havic on the climate.

I remember back in the 70s when Time magazine and other experts were
warning that we were approacing a new ice age.

Al Gore is ha$$y.

That's ok, I will continue to enjoy hearing the birds sing
and working in my garden.

Disagree all you want, iron horse. It's not an opinion.

The best part of climate change deniers is they can't make up their minds whether to deny it's happening or point to non human influences on why it is happening... from the same individuals

There have been few times when I wanted to apply the term "radical atheist" to myself more than the time when I heard the argument that "global warning isn't happening because there's no way that God would let it happen". I think it was from James Inhofe, which wouldn't be surprising, but I may be mistaken.

It's kind of hard to disagree with science.

Tell me, *why* do you disagree? Be specific.

In that case I would say, of course He wouldn't - but that doesn't stop human beings from making a mess out of the world and destroying everything.

I overheard two co-workers talking about the Oklahoma tornado yesterday and one of them mentioned how tornadoes seem to be worse than ever (Remember Joplin?). I don't see how anyone can look at the weather and all these natural disasters as of late, and not think something is going on. Even after Hurricane Sandy there are still deniers, although where I used to live, some admitted to rethinking about climate change not really happening. Something is going on. Whether its man-made or just nature itself is up for debate, but I don't understand how anyone can deny climate change when destruction is everywhere.
