If they were rich Demonicraps, they could take their private jets daily around the globe to lecture people on the evils of burning dead dynosaurs. for energy....all you need to do is give us all of your money and freedoms and we will take care of everything for you...because we're smart, and you're not....just look at how well we have Venezuela running.

Go ahead...check them out for yourself. Go for it!
All very fascinating. Japan must be hyper-aware being just a tiny ridge on the top of a mountain.

The earth has been in transition since it was formed. Our insignificant existence will cease like every other assemblage of organisms before us. Savor the moment. Take the kids fishing.

Quit pretending man has the upper hand on Earth's condition.

The disappearance of Alaskan Glaciers may be fun to watch but are symptoms of a warming climate.
All perfectly normal events. Some preventable and some acts of nature. We deal with it and move on.

The 3rd commandment of Global Warming (now Climate Change) is that if it gets cool, that's weather but if it gets hot, that's climate change...actually the Climate Change Commandment is that any change in the weather is Climate Change.

I think we should all take Jeremy Corbin's advice to consider climate change the greatest threat ever to humanity and to do what you can to address it....and he flew over 80,000 miles last year to talk about it and so should you....who else pledges to fly over 80,000 miles next year to learn more about the dangers of Climate Change?

No doubt it's vastly hotter - noticeably. It used to be that the vast majority of houses in New England didn't even have A/C - these days people might actually die from heatstroke on certain days...and the heat seems to go on much longer also.

Even in the mid-Atlantic temperatures used to "break" by the first week of August so that nights became much cooler....not any more!

On the coastline we actually moved up a full climate (plant hardiness) zone.

Not as big of a problem here as in Florida and other Southern Climes where a couple degrees means you go over the "you are gonna die if you are outside" threshold.

It also wasn't an isolated phenomena...

"In addition, there is one simulation with no changes in radiative forcings (labelled CONSTANT, bottom row), and this is an example of how the climate varies even without any changes to the forcing factors listed above. Note that this simulation has many apparent bumps and wiggles due to random fluctuations in surface temperatures, highlighting that not every observed variation has to be due to a change in external factors. Such internal variations are common in both observations and climate simulations and are often associated with temporary energy exchanges within the climate system, for example additional heat uptake or release from the deeper ocean"

No, I'm talking about modern records....The last 415 months.

How about that solar minimum going on!! Eh? No? Of course. I forgot. 97% of IPCC, peer-reviewed, climate scientists agree that the sun has no bearing on the earth's climate and in fact, they are certain now that the main driver of the earth's climate is the amount of CO2 in the earth's atmosphere.

Only government control and resource rationing for "select" populations can save us now.
