    Ah, cue the deniers.

    I can’t believe it’s hot today!!!
    Just more leftist propaganda.

    I have noticed that the runoff from glaciers has increased greatly due to runaway warming. If the runoff was the same or reduced and the glaciers were retreating, then I would have to observe this as proof that the glaciers were not being fed, rather than that they were succumbing to increased heat, as the most reliable of sources, my political leaders and news editors have hastened to assure me. I sat down to do the math on how much heating would be required to decrease a stable and dynamic glacial system to the degree observed, but decided that the mathematics were a lie, just like the laws of thermodynamics. A benevolent group whose only goal is world peace and the salvation of mankind by global domination would never lie to me.

    We’re on the road toward the Sixth Extinction. When the world really turns against us there may be no way to turn it back. Have a nice day…

    As usual, I agree with ConserveGov.


    In the 16th century, everyone KNEW there was a Northwest Passage, a band of unfrozen water through which ships could easily pass, and many sailors found it, but, for some inexplicable reason, they all lost it and could never find it again.


    So, everyone who’s looked for the last 500 years found nothing but solid ice, and the mysterious Northwest Passage remained hidden.


    Today, however, the Northwest Passage is easily observed every summer. Showing we’ve finally found it!


    Of course, if a huge mass of solid ice has really thawed for the first time in 500 years, it might mean something, but are we going to believe those intrepid 16th century explorers who said they found it then lost it, or a bunch of modern whippersnappers?


    I know who I believe.


    (Actually, if one is going to deny global warming, there are two magic words one must say. Sadly, I haven’t heard a single denier use either of them. If one is going to agree the world is warmer, but humans had nothing to do with it, there are six magic words. And, again, I haven’t heard even one of the six.)

    The sun warms the Earth, but climate change is not caused by the sun. This sort of thing has been studied by scientists. If the sun were suddenly hotter, there are ways to measure that, and it simply hasn’t happened. We are burning fossil fuels. CO2 is a known greenhouse gas. CO2 is at the highest level ever in human existence, and is ramping up constantly. The Earth is at it’s warmest point in thousands of years, and the rate of change is unprecedented in known history. There is no point in that chain of causality that has not been scientifically proven, yet conservatives point at the chain and say “that cannot possibly be true,” yet cannot point to a single valid problem with the overwhelming evidence. Conservatives are less credible on this than on most of their drivel.

    We all should be grateful for climate change considering that a mere 12,000 years ago there was a pretty large chunk of the Northern hemisphere under ice. What we are experiencing now is a continuation of that melting ice age.
    .
    The permafrost levels lag by centuries and they continue to thin and move north. Where this climatic drift will end is unknown but it is happening with or without mans help.
    .
    Is our “activity” influencing the rate, possibly. The cause most often cited is that we are burning fossil fuels.. So, turn off the air conditioner. That “coolness” is not free and every city is pumping tons of heat into the atmosphere that would not be there but for air conditioning.

    It’s too bad we can’t do something about the sun warming us. Dang sun keep messing things up.

    Wrong, CO2 levels have been many times higher before, check the ice samples. When CO2 levels were higher is was much much colder.

    @onguard

    Your graph shows “temperature oscillations”, not actual temperatures. Why is that?

    I’m Coraryan, and I still can’t understand the difference between weather and climate.

    Notice that the low points of your chart correspond with previous extinction dates.

    Time for you to go back to school. The sun does change and there are records to prove it. It runs in cycles. Man’s contribution amounts to less than 1%. Good luck making your change.

    Does it start with F and ends with World (though that would be three words and they say it all the time, just not outright)?

    The sun changes to what exactly? Genders?
