    Maybe, but human activity had little or nothing to do with it…

    It’s much worse than that, skrain. In 2012, “34,008 daily high records were set at weather stations across the country, compared with only 6,664 record lows, according to a count maintained by the Weather Channel meteorologist Guy Walton, using federal temperature records.” 2012 was the warmest year in recorded history, by a huge margin. Ima is so wrong on this, it’s embarrassing. What is it with conservatives and denial of observable fact? Do you really hate Al Gore so much that you’ll deny truth for it?
    And the warming is because of human activity, despite the fact-free denial of DGF. Check the International Journal of Mass Spectrometry: “the recent drastic rise in CO2 levels in the atmosphere is entirely due to human activity.”
    The effects of human activity on the climate are measurable and quantifiable, CO2 levels have gone from and there is no other known source that would cause climate change to be so rapid and so extreme.

    “Mr.” Ima needs to live in the soot immersed cities of China…

    Harley could join her—-muttering “Man bad! Nature good!”, while stumbling down the street, hacking and wheezing.

    People like wearing shorts and since Obammy hasn’t produced any real jobs people can enjoy the nice warm days.

    Please provide evidence for man causing global warming?
    Latest data indicates no worldwide temperature warming within the last ten years.

    I live in Alaska, the rain has frozen in the snow form the temps going from -40 to +37 in two days and then back down to -30 again..
    This is the extreme weather spoken of cause by climate change.
    The musk ox and caribou die the same, manmade or nature.
    If you live where it is nice out most of the time perhaps a couple of degrees do not matter.
    A couple degrees make a huge difference if the permafrost is a fraction of a degree from melting.

    It is amazing how often the subject comes up.
    I was watching a Rick Steves travel show yesterday. He was in Norway, and remarked how a glacier is receding because of climate change.

    Scott: “deniers” who not only “cherry pick” a piece of data, out of thousands of study findings, and then mis-interpret that single piece of data to boot, aren’t being either intelligent, or honest. Over 50 years of studies, hundreds of thousands of observations, have conclusively proven that human caused “climate change” has had profound regional, and later, global impacts. What was happening in the 1950’s, before many countries, including the U.S. implemented laws to change the “inputs” of humans to the system, HAS changed. What has NOT changed, is that our increase to over seven billion people, all contributing in small or large part to the “problem” with the use of not just “fuels”, but also “technology” that demands more consumption of stored energy from the Earth. Not only has this led to pollution, and serious climate problems, the “denier” community has also totally ignored the fact that these fuels ARE FINITE! Yes, “new” discoveries (many of these sources have been well-known for over four decades, they aren’t “new discoveries”) are being exploited, but the sources, and the ability of the Earth to absorb byproducts of consumption, remain finite.

    “Pay me now, or pay me later”, the planet is starting to demand payments now, but if our posterity survives our total ignorance, and pursuit of greed-driven profits, THEY will pay the ultimate heavy price. But then “what has posterity ever done for me” is the response.

    Except that the Met Office report didn’t show that, and the Met Office do not appreciate the Daily Mail’s dishonest spin

    There is only “no global warming in [x] years” if, indeed, you carefully cherrypick how you actually look at the records.

    If you ignore all the areas of the world where record lows were set during 2012, then you might conclude that 2012 was the hottest year on record. Science fiction is amazing.

    Parker: Why don’t you check out ARodney’s post above (with facts). As to Ima’s “frogs freezing”, they, toads, crayfish, etc. have an internal anti-freeze which allows them to bury and hibernate.

    I thought they went to Arizona for the winter?

    “Mr.” Ima has a host of cognitive impairment issues…
