It's beautiful at my house. Warmer than usual the past 3-4 winters. Therefore AGW is true

Over 90% of our electricity is produced by hydro, and other green sources are increasingly coming online.

Do they know why?

PS I did read the article referenced.

If trends continue, wonder what will happen. . .

evidence of warming?

a fluke?

I know we felt this in Denver, awesome 70 degree days in February!


One of the coldest here since 1972.
22 this morning. Sometimes in the past winters, we were lucky to get below freezing for more than 3 days of the winter.

More than a century's worth of detailed climate observations shows a sharp increase in both carbon dioxide and temperature. These observations, together with computer model simulations and historical climate reconstructions from ice cores, ocean sediments and tree rings all provide strong evidence that the majority of the warming over the past century is a result of human activities. This is also the conclusion drawn, nearly unanimously, by climate scientists.

He spent his life as a TV weatherman talking head.

His ignorant views are not those of the American Meteorological Society:

2012 AMS Information Statement on Climate Change
"It is clear from extensive scientific evidence that the dominant cause of the rapid change in climate of the past half century is human-induced increases in the amount of atmospheric greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2), chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and nitrous oxide. The most important of these over the long term is CO2, whose concentration in the atmosphere is rising principally as a result of fossil-fuel combustion and deforestation."
or any other mainstream science organisation worldwide.

No, it hasn't. What's your source for this nonsense claim?

How about millions of years?

If you want to learn more about the earth's past climates and the major role of CO2, try watching a lecture from the 2009 American Geophysical Union (AGU) conference by Professor Richard Alley. There has also been more recent research in several large studies since 2009 that adds even more paleoclimate evidence to confirm what he is saying. He's a bit of a character and quite entertaining.




Richard Alley: "The Biggest Control Knob: Carbon Dioxide in Earth's Climate History" - AGU 2009 conference



The American Institute of Physics also has a good overview of the history of the research into earth's past climates:

4 Record low temperatures in the past 3 weeks here. The latest was last night. 2nd coldest February on record - with records back to 1870.

John Coleman isn't credible, and his videos aren't new.

He has zero science education (his degree is in journalism, and is 50 years old), and was kicked off of the Weather Channel a year after he 'founded' it.

Here's a statement by the weather channel on Coleman's BS:

Weather Channel: Co-founder doesn't speak for us on global warming - Nov. 2, 2014

He has no idea what he is talking about.
At all.
