So a couple of weeks ago, we set a record high with 79 deg in March....today...it's snowing!!

This is ridiculous!

Global warming is about climate, not everyday weather (which may become more and more bizarre).

Trouble is when you have a warm spell in January it's global warming. So says the media. And funny that global warming experts don't dispel this saying it's everyday weather and not climate. Of course when the temps take a nosedive they're quick to point out that THIS is just local weather. You can't have your cake and eat it too. I am thoroughly convinced manmade global warming is a manmade farce.

Well, as I understand it, the climate change is an increase of the average temperature, which can explain a hot winter.
But when I say it's not everyday weather, it means that we will still have cold days, but perhaps less cold days that we were used to.

So a warm January can be explained by the global warming which deals with average temperatures, but a quick change in temperature is not related to the climate, but to some "local" weather conditions, existing whatever the climate is.

Find me one scientist who claims there isn't a natural cycle (ice-ages). The rate of change is what is important - and the rate of change is occurring too rapidly for it to be natural.

The scientists who actually do research in the field agree that it cannot be a purely natural cycle. Anthropogenic effects are beyond any reasonable doubt at least contributing to it, if not dominating it. The exact extent of human influence is still under research, but the massive man-made increase of the CO2 level in the atmosphere (among other artificial influences) is an obvious contributor.

Saving fossile resources and restraining waste and emissions is very obviously a necessity even independently of climate change, but it seems complacency has no bounds at all.

what i mean is: the avg. yearly temp is based on 1000s of reporting places all over the world and with so many reporting and the rise in yearly world temps only going up point tenths of a degree could it be possible that a reporting places(s) could have sent a wrong number to the database and that would set the temp up higher?

As long as the sensors are properly calibrated, you can get decent long-term data and relative trends for each of the measurement points. In addition to that, satellites like the european Envisat make it possible to extract global and rather accurate temperature readings from the entire surface of the earth, whether populated or not.

Well, from what I've seen in some movies is... The areas north and south of 30º will be frozen in an artic wasteland, and kill off enough population to ease the over populating that people seem to go on and on about. After all this happens, the air will be clean, and pure. The evil US will have to immigrate to Mexico to survive. Seems like this is a win - win situation for the rest of the world.










How about putting all your efforts to cleaning up dirtier places. Whatever happened to all this talk about the end of the world hole in the ozone over Antarctica? Smog? I haven't seen much of that in years.

Bering Land Bridge, anyone?

Sahara been recently created?

"The climate of the Sahara has undergone enormous variation between wet and dry over the last few hundred thousand years. During the last ice age, the Sahara was bigger than it is today, extending south beyond its current boundaries.[1] The end of the ice age brought wetter times to the Sahara, from about 8000 BC to 6000 BC, perhaps due to low pressure areas over the collapsing ice sheets to the north.

Once the ice sheets were gone, the northern part of the Sahara dried out. However, not long after the end of the ice sheets, the monsoon which currently brings rain to the Sahara came further north and counteracted the drying trend in the southern Sahara. The monsoon in Africa (and elsewhere) is due to heating during the summer. Air over land becomes warmer and rises, pulling in cool wet air from the ocean. This causes rain. Paradoxically, the Sahara was wetter when it received more solar insulation in the summer. In turn, changes in solar insulation are caused by changes in the Earth's orbital parameters."

Oh mi oh my, the sea is 6 inches closer to our mansions, whatever shall we do? Could it possible be concieved land deformation from those same mansion are possible responsible by building manmade boundaries where the sea would normally go? Such as removal of marshlands, large patches of beachgrass, and such that would absorb such water, naturally?(But they I guess they can't build their Mcmansion, that's a shame). Could that be concievable, guess that's answered in the second part ofyour the first phrase. By all means this doesn't mean there isn't more water in the ocean, I won't dispute that, but coastal effects would be minimal at best if we didn't feel the need to put our property above the natural way of things. Fertility of croplands and desertification is again a natural progression of things in many areas, and is also the result of man's pilfering of those areas. Look in Southern Cal, Arizona, or Las Vegas, water is being depleted and redirected from farther and farther away to feed the population explosion being seen in those areas. Not impacting desertification, becuase it's still CO2 right? How about California's programs to "seed" moisture carrying clouds with a silver compound to help make the water droplets heavier and thus rain? But what about the Rockies where it should naturally go?(Notice the large drops in the overall depth of Colorado River? That is also being diverted for use to fill pools?) Again that's answered by in your first phrase through the sheer importance is to protect the rich. Or how about the depletion of many of the natural grasslands throughout the West and Midwest with developments, farming, and over forestation through prevention of forest fires? Surely we have an impact on this Earth, but it's just plain ignorant, no, downright retarded, to actually believe this is happening mainly becuase of increased CO2 production, which, although defying science, seems it can only be produced by human kind, namely Oil and Coal companies, the devils idle hands, yes?

"It will without doubt have come to your Lordship's knowledge that a considerable change of climate, inexplicable at present to us, must have taken place in the Circumpolar Regions, by which the severity of the cold that has for centuries past enclosed the seas in the high northern latitudes in an impenetrable barrier of ice has been during the last two years, greatly abated.

(This) affords ample proof that new sources of warmth have been opened and give us leave to hope that the Arctic Seas may at this time be more accessible than they have been for centuries past, and that discoveries may now be made in them not only interesting to the advancement of science but also to the future intercourse of mankind and the commerce of distant nations."

Yet it's colder here this year than it was last save a short spat of warmer weather. Should I be worried? Kinda late in the year for snow. Maybe we need a climate adjuster. Like a leap year. Maybe all those leap years have caught up with us finally and we're off a month or two. This feel's like March. December felt like November and January most certainly felt like December. Hell, I specifically recall a bad ass blizzard in Denver in November of 1990. Not unlike this years blizzard. Man, that was a fine mess. Yup.. Good old global warming.

A single "strange" season is usually not an indication of anything. A succession of seasons skewed consistently into the same direction (which includes the variability of the weather) can be an indication of climate change, however.

The relative accuracy of earlier thermometers is known within a certain range; Longer-term temperature developments can be read from physical, geological and biological history as preserved in various deposits. Depending on the indicator, those readings can reach back millions, even billions of years and still deliver relevant data.

Measurement errors must be and are accounted for, which is why aggregate conclusions always come with a certain margin of error as well.

What are you talking about? It is well known that there have been many gradual developments in climate but also near-instant reversals in natural history when certain tipping points had been reached. Unfortunately we're by now powerful enough to rock the boat with our industrialized civilization and our massive population numbers, so it is quite conceivable and entirely consistent to expect the possibility of yet another reversal on the path we're going right now.

And what do you want to say with your quote? That periods of regional or global cooling and warming happened before? Nobody in his right mind denies that our climate is variable. The point is that such a rapid change as we see now is something new and can't be related to natural causes. Your quote dates back to a time when a longer period with cool temperatures known as little the "Little Ice Age" came slowly (and not without some further minima) to its end.
