    It can't just be the U.S. but all nations. There are so many conflicting reports by different scientist but the thermometer doesn't lie. What has not been adressed is the water depletion of mountain streams. In Virginia where I grew up our streams are going dry and the flow rate is getting lower every year. Springs and wells are drying up too. Rainfall studies haven't been done that I know of to determine why this is happening. About 30 years ago the Frazier Fir Christmas tree farms boomed on our mountain. With this came alot of spraying of herbisides that almost wiped out the mountain trout and minnow population in our srteams. Even the branch lizard was placed on Virginia's edangered species list. The EPA stated that these pesticides were safe, but there was so much widespread loss of natural wildlife to include the Ruffed Grouse that there was only one common denominator and that was the pesticides or the acid run off from the cutting of the Frazier Firs. Somehow mother nature finds a way, because in the last few years, the trout are comming back, and so are the birds. The EPA refused to determine anything along with the Department of Fish and Wildlife. The trees are still there but we are losing our streams. It's not just global warming but look at the honey bees that are dying out? those are our pollenators for our fruit. Is there too much interference in the air waves. Is their too much sonar from boats in our oceans that are causing whales to beach themselves? We need to pay attention to what we are doing.

    Your post is imho the most intelligent on this thread. I remember as a kid, in the mountains of Va, when winters brought blizzard like conditions and summers were dreadful hot. There used to be four distinct seasons, but to me they feel like they all run together now. Something is surely going on.

    on many issues we don't agree much, but on this one i believe that you've pretty well hit it on the button.

    we need to pay attention to what we're doing, because even if there's a possibility that we're the ones responsible we should change it right now.

    Got my vote also. What I don't understand is the arrogance of some that can't/don't realize that the (over) population of the Earth could be a great cause of climate change. We are farming more land, using more water and polluting our steams, oceans and lands. Stripping forests bare. And to believe that this can't cause change.

    the reason a lot of the streams are drying up in the northeast is because wack jobs keep planting trees like carter makes liver pills.100+ years ago in new hampshire it was mostly farm land,big streams everywhere,now most of the farms are gone and are replaced by trees,a good sized tree beside a stream can use a couple of hundred gallons of water a day...multiply that by thousands of trees and you have a dry brook,when your brooks dry up,your rivers tend to dry up also,but don,t worry the water not going into outer space..as far as the whales,they have always beached themselves,maybe they just elect some bad leaders...i mean the nation elected Obama and he's certainly going to lead us off a cliff...but you might want to research www.haarp.net and this article http://www.pakalertpress.com/2012/02/09/myste...

    Global Warming is based upon junk science. It is a great fraud created by Al Gore and his European buddies. How many carbon credits do you have and how much are they worth?

    I assume you're a scientist with infallible evidence to support your thesis that this is all junk science that's agreed upon by almost all of climate scientists.

    @DrMoonshine Apparently, you have been drinking your own by-product, moonshine. There has never been a consensus among scientists, not to mention, climate scientists. There has been a flawed poll which indicated that the majority supported the assumptions of the IPCC report; however, that poll has since been debunked.

    @Phhhttt Can any of those "scientists" explain how man has somehow managed to rewrite the laws of physics?

    With the money behind the carbon credits exchange scam paying for thousands of studies to support their needs, it's not hard to get a consensus.... Ask the right people the right question and you can get the right answer....

    When you ask about the physics they always go off on a tirade, sorta like a liberal being asked about El Presidente' No point in letting facts get in the way.

    @Sharpshooter remember that "hard fact replacing your silly crap". Mankind also weaponized physics. Snark..

    It has already proven that all the global warming bs was started in england by two sciencetists. They faked everything.

    Warmer winters? I'm in southern California and anyone who believes this crap can kiss what I'm freezing off. Below 32°F temps in SoCal means global warming is SoNot happening.:-P

    It's a Flawed Question... Is the Climate changing? Yes... Do Humans have anything to do with it or can they do any thing about is... No... The Climate is always changing... was before humans existed and will after humans are long gone...

    Naturally occuring weather cycles. In the 1970s it was global cooling, in the 1980s/90s it became global warming. Now it's "global climate change". I call it SCAM. There is no problem until someone can prove its real and can provide a way to FIX it.

    I am sick of this manufactured problem and seeing taxes, penalties, and job losses as a result of junk science and hype.

    Scam = Global climate change.

    @RobertJHarsh I agree ... it's a proven fact that the Earth has experienced warmer than normal temps and cooler than normal temps. If we were experiencing another Ice Age, would these same people be promoting greenhouse gases to warm the planet back up? Weather runs in cycles ... to think that the drought in the midwest could never happen again after the Dust Bowl period is just foolish to say the least! To blame it on greenhouse gases is just a bit insane but hey I'm just a farmer who makes his living on what the weather does ... but what do I know right?

    @JustTheFacts
    Exactly, you don't know. Yes the earth has been both colder and hotter, but the variations since the rise of civilization have been small. Even those small changes in climate resulted in very bad things for mankind.
    I think the biggest problem people have with climate change is realizing that for the first time ever, we are in a position to alter the global environment.
    If you don't know how much population has increased, and how much standards of living have risen for so many people, then it might seem fanciful.
    But those two factors put together have an impact as forceful as though the world population had tripled or more. That's because every new person uses multiple times the resources and energy that we're used to seeing.
    This one of those times when 'common sense' leads us down the wrong path, and it's why we have science and math, to deal with the aspects of reality that boggle the imagination.
    And that is why it scares me to hear legislators take positions that are contrary to accepted science and that indicate that they have no interest in science at all.
    The Bible is not going to get us out of this particular mess.

    Just wondering about all the people that say global warming isn't real and humans aren't the cause, I would like to see yalls degrees in geology and climatology? If not the you're just spewing bs, and please show numerical data that correlates with your hypothesis.

    Another Fed' report, yeah I'll believe it. Howabout NASA's instead:NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth’s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.

    A recent study has shown that the key factor which determines the rate of global warming for at least 20 years into the future is the amount of CO2 already in the atmosphere. Even major volcanic eruptions like Pinatubo in 1991 have little long-term impact. In 1970 the CO2 level was 325 ppm (Mauna Loa data). In 1990 it was 353 ppm. It is now 391 ppm, and rising 2 ppm every year. Therefore, the warming WILL speed up, and in the short term we cannot reverse the trend, regardless of what we do.

    Is there climate change? Yes. Are we causing it ? H E (Double hockey sticks) No. Is Al Bore and the like, getting rich of the gullible sheep who belive in man made global warming? YES.

    You know how I know you're full of it?

    Because you just said our politicians are lying to us. That's the most outlandish thing I've ever heard. They wouldn't do that... would they?

    Either that or move to Oregon. It's 19 degrees right now. I wouldn't mind a little localized warming right about now.

    @PNWest
    Lol!! I agree!! We need to be trying to warmup the place( I heard the reason they said there was no warming since 98 until this year was because China was putting so much pollution in the air!) I thought that's what caused it in the first place!! I wish that's all I had to worry about was the sky is falling.. Or earth turning into molten rock or whatever !

    @Ashstop Don't you live in Ft Worth? It gets plenty hot down there in the summer. You know it's hot when you have an 85 degree August day and feel like you need to grab a jacket.

    @PNWest
    Yes, ft worth, but it still gets in the 20's and teens in the winter,(21 tonight) it gets uncomfortable in summer( 2 years ago we had 90 days over a hundred, this year only 25) but its brutal in winter, we could survive here with no air conditioning but without heat we would perish in the winter and we are a southern state! That's why globial warming would be welcome to me!! Even if we lost a little coastline they say whole continents like Greenland could become more habital to supporting life.

    I have not seen signs up any more for littering and I dont see people getting fined. But I believe we was given this earth by GOD to take care of and for are enjoyment. Most of the animals are dying, climate change, etc. when animals start to die. That will be us next. Hopefully we get cleaner energy, no gas cars, recycling more, etc. just to save are planet and us. Hopefully teaching kids about recycling, pollution, and taking care of the earth

    I would first say that the scientists need to look at their data again....since earth moved a couple of degrees off it's axis because of some real big earthquakes this could actually change weather patterns too....more so than what humans contribute....
    In fact if you look at the weather patterns on the maps....it seems to bear this out....so the earth keeps plugging away....doing its thing....changing....while others use to try and control people and gain power and wealth for themselves....
