I think we can all agree that it's been a crappy spring.

Not if you live in Texas. Cooler than normal makes this place somewhat livable.

That's still some drought you've got going on.

Weirdly, I really like a lot about Texas. I've even been west of Waco in mid-July and really didn't hate it at all. Fascinating landscape.

Dallas kind of sucks though.

The drought it awful. Our water supply in Austin is at 40% and falling.

There's much to like. The landscape west of I-35 can be really pretty. Austin is a great city. San Antonio's not bad. Houston has its merits. D/FW is a great airport.

Dallas is not my favorite place. I used almost used the word "loathsome", but that seemed slightly too harsh.

Our summers are utterly miserable.

Heard last night during the Sox game that it was 40 something degrees for the Rangers game last night. The announcers were happy to hear it because they're headed there. You could be in Minnesota or Colorado and still be getting six inches plus of snow. It's been a crappy spring here, it's finally been warm enough lately to get outside. Nice stretch of weather the past week or so, and it's supposed to continue at least through Tuesday.

I think most experts might agree that climate change brings extremes, not just warmth. It was 80 in Denver Monday, then Wed it was 30 and they got snow. That's just insane.

Meanwhile in California.

Wildfire on California coast: On Day 2, more Santa Ana winds (+video) - CSMonitor.com

It's 93 in LA today and our winter was extremely warm and dry. Fire season is going to be bad.

Darn facts.
As horrible a film as "The Day After Tomorrow" was. It actually got one thing right. Global warming is expected to cause the north east to be colder. The melting of the polar ice caps wreaks havoc with the major ocean currents due to the desalinization of the ocean. The reason that the Northeast has a relatively moderate climate for it's latitude is because of the Gulf Stream. That current brings warm water up the coast, and it's why the Atlantic is so warm. If that current is weakened, the East Coast gets cold.

Now I'm not saying the Cold spring on the East Coast is due to that, but I wanted to show that Climate Change doesn't just mean warmer temps. Climate science is extraordinarily complex, so just posting random temps to refute what the vast majority of the scientific community is saying is like posting the winner of a lottery while saying that it's proof that anyone can make money in a lottery.

This week was one of the craziest I can remember. 85 degrees on Tuesday, playing golf.

Thursday comes around and it's 33 degrees and a blizzard.

Seems like its about over. Back to 60s tomorrow.

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
