(Reuters) - This winter's heavy snowfalls and other extreme storms could well be related to increased moisture in the air due to global climate change, a panel of scientists said on Tuesday.

This extra moisture is likely to bring on extraordinary flooding with the onset of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, as deep snowpack melts and expected heavy rains add to seasonal run-off, the scientists said in a telephone briefing.

I still can't believe that so many people don't see what is happening before our very eyes.

Too much rain? Climate Change.
Too little rain? Climate Change.
Too hot? Climate Change.
Too cold? Climate Change.

It's hard to take anything like that seriously when people are suggesting that every little weather event is caused by man-made greenhouse gas emissions.

Keep in mind that in Al Gore's video, he said that the record setting temperatures in some places were the cause of climate change.

So what was the cause for all the snowfall back in the 70's and 80's? We are only seeing the same things we saw back then...

Or, the Little Ice Age.

No one is suggesting that every little change in weather is the result of man-made greenhouse gases, but a global pattern over time of crazy changes in weather patterns is, by definition, climate change.

We aren't talking a little more rain here or there. We are talking floods, seasons coming earlier, hottest years on record being concentrated in the past decade.

Get over your hate for Al Gore and look at what we can all see is going on around us.

Hasn't the climate of various regions around the globe changed throughout history?

What caused those changes?

Nobody denies climate change. We deny that man is the cause of it. Why do you not get that?

I thought weather was not climate.

They don't see it because it's nothing but a bunch of hogwash.

Unscientific hype about the flooding risks from climate change will cost us all dear

“When your results represent the output of four computer models, fed into a fifth computer model, whose output goes to a sixth computer model, which is calibrated against a seventh computer model, and then your results are compared to a series of different results from the fifth computer model, but run with different parameters, in order to show that flood risks have increased from greenhouse gases…” you cannot pretend that this is “a valid representation of reality”, let alone “a sufficiently accurate representation of reality to guide our future actions”.

I get that argument. Why would you suggest I don't? The Scientific community overwhelmingly disagrees with you however.

The first step to identifying an issue is to recognize if it is there. So, do you think there IS a change in weather pattern? Or, is everything just fine, the way things have always been? Let us start there.
