WhippingBoy: What caused the lack of snow in 1889?
Deep Contact: Global warming, not here.[lindsayrgwatt.com image 320x480]
common sense is an oxymoron: bingethinker: 40 years ago I had to endure two weeks of -40 degree weather every winter. Now I don't. Tell me again how awful global warming is./and then tell me how your 120 years of measurements relate to 4.5 billion years of realityTell me how the past 4.5 billion years is relevant to a specific atmospheric change that began a couple of centuries ago.
justGreg: You'd think some of that positive feedback from the models would eke its way into the actual observed data at some point, wouldn't you.
EVERYBODY PANIC: Baryogenesis: DrPainMD: 279 days? That's not even close to a record. Des Moines has had streaks of no snow that lasted hundreds of thousands of years.I live with my momEverywhere on earth has had wet spells and dry spells, cold times and warm times - if you look back far enough. The world appears to be warming a bit during the present period. It might be from man-made causes, but other factors should also be investigated. And should the planet actually go up or down a couple degrees in this century, it will certainly have consequences, both good and bad. Whatever happens, mankind will do what it always does... deal with it.Many are easily frightened, believing that warming will have mostly negative consequences. They may be right, but temperature fluctuations tend to include benefits. We will survive it, and we will adjust. That's how we roll. Cooling will have greater consequences, for we will lose habitable areas and croplands will be greatly diminished. Cooling equals famine. Cooling equals FLorida becoming less muggy. Goes both ways.
Baryogenesis: For those who don't know, 2005 is the warmest year on record so starting a graph there will show flat or declining warming trend. Deniers love cherry picking.
