Doesn't seem to be a big deal. Temps will be trending down fairly soon.

The only thing similar is the warming...The fact is that it's warmer today....The causes are not the same.

Climate scientists now understand that the Medieval Warm Period was caused by an increase in solar radiation and a decrease in volcanic activity, which both promote warming. Other evidence suggests ocean circulation patterns shifted to bring warmer seawater into the North Atlantic, and affected the northern Hemisphere.

Today's warming is caused by rising CO2 in the atmosphere and affects the entire planet.

Just watching Texas bake in the 100 degree temps makes me smile.

Sad about what will happen to Alaska but they are GOP so...no pity.

Since the GOP says this is not happening, I can only go by my own experience and my own experience is the places I have lived in the past have definitely definitely become hotter, especially Denver.

There is so much contradictory propaganda on this, I'm going on my experience from living 66 years on the earth. Nothing changing much. It was a little warmer for about 20 years, but now its cooled off again, back to like it was when I was a kid.

What a bunch of tripe!

SO all other influences on temp and climate have been suspended, and only CO2 affects temps and climate?

What about your temps atop of Mt. Everest, where CO2 levels are very low?

I guess you forgot as well that the earth's magnetic field id diminishing in strength, which allows more radiation (including IR radiation) to reach the planet?

Lastly, the earth's temp has increased .5 degrees in 100 years- hardly the "catastrophe" the warmers envision and we are entering a Grand Solar Minimum, so button up and buy a new coat.

Opinion:

Our lives are just a mere blip of observance compared to core drilling
as a tool to gauge the differences between modern day temperatures
and the temperatures of a 2,000 year ago Roman Empire.
We are minuscule......................
Our mother earth is a living entity and knows how to repair itself when sick.
What we are observing is a culmination and result of human, sub-topographic and cosmic interferences.
