    We just had two weeks of very cold temperatures. The trick is, this one week is the first time in 16 years we’ve had what used to be “standard” January weather here. The pictures of my kids growing up with snow, and very cold temperatures, compared to even this last week, IS evidence of change. That biological systems, from rodents to trees(around the entire planet), ARE changing, sometimes drastically, is evidence having nothing to do with reliance on CO2 levels, but IS evidence of the effect.

    At first I thought it was a comic bringing attention to the homeless

    Proving what?… that the skeptics don’t know the difference between “climate” and “weather”? Proving why the preferred term is “climate change” and not “global warming”? Proving that the cartoonist was on deadline and had nothing intelligent to say but knew it was cold out?

    All your points are good except the last one, I think. My interpretation is that Sheneman is pointing out the lack of real evidence (and understanding) the individual who says it is cold out has. The science has long term data (and good theories) to justify (and explain) the change. The uninformed individual, just looks at the current local conditions and foolishly denies the reality of the long term changes.

    I do not know very many people that do not think the climate is changing it is the reason why that should be the debate. things to consider the native americans came over on the ice that connected russia and the united states, the great lakes were carved by ice flows. yes we may be changing it but on the other hand someone said that we pushing back the next ice age 20 thousand years

    2012 was the warmest year on record for the continental U.S.
    In central FL it was second warmest (1990 was warmest here)
    It matters more where there is ice to melt, although the ocean (and Gulf) becoming more acid could have consequences other than just killing coral reefs.

    Global Warming is the cause, climate change is the effect. A colder then average day or 2 is weather. Climate change can mean warmer winters, colder summers, or the reverse. Get you concepts correct people.

    When will the climate change unbelievers get it, when the water is up to their nose? Too late then.

    There is no anthropogenic global climate change. That’s the critical point. Global climate has natural cycles both long and short. we cannot affect it. Such Hubris!

    Excellent cartoon. It show the typical liberal mentality, ignoring any facts that contradict global warming, as if they don’t exist. That is the only way to support such a lame theory. Ignore facts that contradict your view.

    ^It’s because your “facts” DON’T exist! Over 50 years of research data prove climate change is human caused, going back to earlier models and impacts in the Mediterranean that were caused by harvesting timber and grazing, warming in Southern Europe and North Africa, while coal burning caused different changes in Northern Europe, cooling from soot, at the SAME TIME!

    The level of the oceans has been raising for about 4 thousand years. Fla used to be much bigger. The English channel used to be dry land. There has been over 260 feet of ice build up on Greenland since April of ‘42. It didn’t melt so why are we worried about other ice floes melting? The rest of the planets have warmed too, it’s the sun stupid, nd we don’t control the sun. And as to ‘12 being the warmest, it’s but a scant half a degree, and next year it will be back down a half a degree, plus there has been on warming for 15 years, http://www.therightsphere.com/2012/01/no-warming-in-15-years/
    The copper mine in the Alps that was found after how many years of being buried? http://climateaudit.org/2005/11/18/archaeological-finds-in-retreating-swiss-glacier/

    And the UN lied for how many years? And now they again changed their numbers.

    50 years of research, wow I guess that settles it then, the fact that in the 1700’s the Thames river froze
    The big networks think that we don’t know about the Little Ice age, and how the earth started warming, naturally, without any interference from us, so that by the end of the 1700’s it was pretty much over. But it didn’t stop warming there.

    The Thames River used to freeze over every few years. It froze in 1408, 1435, 1506, 1514, 1537, 1565, 1595, 1608, 1621, 1635, 1649, 1655, 1663, 1666, 1677, 1684, 1695, 1709, 1716, 1740, 1768, 1776, 1785, 1788, 1795, and finally, the very last time was in 1814. Obviously, the earth started warming too much for it to freeze over after 1814. We also know that the earth still didn’t stop warming then either, because the Hudson in N.Y. continued to Freeze up every year from 1855 all the way through to 1875 obviously, it’s too warm today for that to happen, so the Hudson no longer freezes, yet our industrial revolution didn’t start in earnest until the 1930’s. So If before 1408 it never froze and after 1795 it hasn’t froze, means nothing?.
