wesmon: aNihilV10L8tr: Asian carp is a more dangerous threat to the great lakes than the water staying cold a few weeks longer than average .That's racist.http://frenchtribune.com/teneur/1422126-lawmakers-considering-name-c ha nge-asian-carp-minnesotaThe new, agreed upon name is invasive carp.

Major Ethanolic: So global warming is good now?
Darth_Lukecash: Unfortunately, it will not reduce the number of times "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald " is played on the Classic Rock stations.
Whatchoo Talkinbout: I believe, now gimme the grant money.
nickerj1: Herper Derper DoYou mean the temperature monitoring station that has had 3 A/C exhaust vents, an asphalt parking lot, and a cell tower installed directly adjacent to it since 1973 has increased in temperature by 1 degree ?!!?!?!90%+ of all temp monitoring surface stations have an artificial heat source <30 meters away.70% of all temp monitoring surface stations have an artificial heat source <10 meters away.Whether you care about artificial heat sources may affect how you view global warming. If you pave the entire earth in black asphalt, the temperature of the earth will increase. If you constantly have wireless transmissions every which way, the temp will increase. If you continue to have every building on earth set to 70 degree A/C, the temperature will increase.One thing we could do to stop global warming, or rather user temperature perception, is to ban air conditioners and use white asphalt.

brantgoose: The thing about global warming, the thing that really matters is, the key thing to remember, is that it's GLOBAL!This is local news, Bubba. Go tell it to Joe Biden and see if he thinks it's a BFD. I am glad to see that the Great Lakes water levels are being boosted back towards normal. Decades of decline have severely harmed wildlife, cottagers and shipping. If we can get one of these hard winters every once in a while from the polar vortex, it may build some resiliency into the system.I doubt that this cold snap will alter the 37 year run of above base-line global average temperatures. It's just a blip in the regional, not the world, climate.As Stéphane Mallarmé put it, a throw of the dice will never abolish chance. Weather does not refute climate, nor does regional climate nor natural variation refute the anthropogenic effect. It might wash it out temporarily but when our population jumped from one billion to over seven billion that one time, it changed the world and our relation to it.For one thing, many ecologists believe that a human population of one billion is sustainable in the long run, while seven billion living like Americans or Canadians is not sustainable and uses more resources than the Earth can produce. We are eating up the capital of Life on Earth along with the interest and getting fatter and stupider by the mouthful.
SevenizGud: Just take a look at this graph of the last 200 months from the, you know, scientific data gathering units worldwide
ghostfacekillahrabbit: There was an anti-climate change letter published in the Milwaukee paper today, on the shore of Lake Michigan that claimed that melting ice can't raise water levels.
FloridaFarkTag: Global Warming Derp...calling Al Gore...need more Hockey Stick....oh wait...it's now Climate Change
FloridaFarkTag: wesmon: Friction8r: This does not correlate well with spasmodic assertions of global warming I mean climate change. Therefore this thread will not draw the FECKLESS crowd and is thus rendered irrelevant.You wear your stupidity like a badge I see.Climate change doesn't just mean warmer everywhere all the time. But don't let the science get in the way of your blind assertions.Global Warming Derp...calling Al Gore...need more Hockey Stick....oh wait...it's now Climate Change
phaseolus: Shipments of iron ore from the northern reaches of Minnesota were so low that the U.S. Steel plant in Gary, Indiana had to scale back production significantly in early April.
