what are you even talking about? i suppose what really concerns you is going to be the coming water scarcity due to the prolonged droughts and desertification that are in the near future that will affect the poorest of the poor as water becomes an even more valuable commodity than oil?

we have 8 slushy inches. it's going to be 65 degrees in a week and a half. i wore shorts on December 22nd. California is gripped by near catastrophic drought and so is the rest of the southwest. the UK is flooding.

what else?

Actually, I don't.

I am very much in favour of nuclear energy. Last I heard so was your communist president.

Lets not forget that the earth has been in an Ice Age now for 2.5 million years. Were currently in a warm inter-glacial period. In a few thousand years there will be another glacial maximum with 2 mile high ice sheets covering all of Canada, much of the northern United States and all of Ireland and the United Kingdom as well as Northern Europe.

Oh my god, this is the most savage winter on the century!!



Except that headline is from 1963. Another reason i love looking through antique stores on the weekend. Go ahead and google winter of 63 by the way and imagine what a field day global warm..., er, climate change alarmists would be having with the death and suffering.

"Extreme" weather isn't new, only the need by some to blame it on human activity.

It's no longer really extreme when it starts to become the norm, though, is it?

The norm? It's a big world but in the US in 2013 tornados (strength and number), hurricanes (strength and number) and wild fires were way down.

We haven't had a Cat 5 hurricane in the Atlantic since 2007. Not quite the prediction of Al Gore's movie was it?

For what it's worth, climate change, in aggregate, has slowed significantly since 1998 or so, to a degree that's been moderately puzzling to scientists, although there are reasonable explanations for it.

This is not a reason to doubt climate change, much as I desperately wish that it were, and that I did not have to deal with this in my future.
