And as far as snow being worse in TN than it was 5 years ago, the most snow Nashville has gotten in the last 12 years was in 2003- we got 7 inches in one day. It shut down the whole city. So snow isn't worse than 5 years ago either.

I guess I am the only one who realized the OP was joking? Shorter days? Etc?

I guess I will add that it seems a little strange that those who deny the arguments put forth by so many worldwide scientists (that the climate change is, at least in part, being accelerated by man), will immediately accept as utter fact that 'cutting taxes' will solve our economic woes. I mean, theories are theories. Climate change (by man) is a theory, and economics (of any type) is theory.

Its already chilly in S tennessee.
The length of Summer has not changed and we keep being told by those who bow at the Goreacle's ponzi scheme altar of global warming that it has absolutely nothing to do with weather.

Thread Fail.

Its already chilly in S tennessee.

"Climate change" is measured globally in fractions of a degree or degrees depending on the time span. It's minute number BUT small changes of a few degrees in the average global temperature may have some drastic effects. For example one of the hottest decades on record happened in the 30's. The claim is this last decade was the hottest however the difference between the two is "statistically insignificant".

What you are experiencing is local variables which can have wild swings yearly because it's much smaller sample size. My area has record rain fall nearly double the average and on pace to beat the all time record set in the 30's if I remember correctly. That doesn't mean the world has experienced record rain fall and it doesn't mean we will see see record rain fall next year either.
