Meanwhile most scientists agree that we need to differentiate between weather and climate.

The NOAA defines climate as the average of weather over at least a 30-year period.

We seem to be near ending up in a loop, a chain-effect, as cannot be stopped, when it gets warmer and more emissions gets up so it will be warmer and so on.

For our children, time to tell Donald Trump, or he knows and will tell soon?
I stopped reading when they said Climate Change since before the beginning of time was due to Donald Trump in the first paragraph.

"And that, according to one of the world’s most renowned climatologists, could be “game over” – particularly given the imminent presence of climate change denier Donald Trump in the White House"

As I said before, the temperature changes that I have posted are regional, not global.

Good idea. If you can afford a Ford F-350, go for it. Enjoy life to the fullest while you can

Global warming feels a lot better than freezing your rump during a period of global cooling


By the way, these guys got a taste of regional cooling:
