    Not enough Al Gore solar panels!

    Just wait until 6 months from now when it is actually winter in the Antarctic.

    The Russians should send one of their big nuclear ice breakers down there and rescue them.

    The surface area of ice in the Antarctic has been expanding. And the best way to measure any 3 dimensional object is to take a two dimensional measure and extrapolate, so this proves irrefutably that global warming is not real. (We are NOT going to note that the depth of the ice has decreased, that is absolutely irrelevant to our irrefutable proof that there’s no global warming.)

    It would have never happened if it wasn’t for that Australian guy.

    This is so true, it is the Antarctic summer right now, while we are having a very hard snow storm up here. Yes it has been warmer for the last 30 years truth is things are going back to normal.

    After the many instances of bad science that has been found how can anyone be so naive? From misplaced temperature gauges, to that place in England that doctored their data.

    And let’s face it, the only scientists who are telling the truth are the ones funded by the fossil fuel companies. I mean, they have nothing to gain from everyone believing global warming is a hoax, right?

    Things are NOT going back to normal. This is the seventh warmest winter on record.
    The larger amounts of snow are in fact an indicator of global warming. Warmer air carries more moisture. So we should get fewer snowstorms but bigger snowfalls.

    For those who think that global warming is a good thing, check out what’s been happening in Australia:
    +
    “Australia experienced its hottest year on record in 2013, the Bureau of Meteorology said Friday, enduring the longest heatwave ever recorded Down Under as well as destructive bushfires.
    “2013 was Australia’s warmest year since records began in 1910,” the bureau said in its annual climate statement, released as inland areas of the country suffer scorching heatwave conditions.
    “Mean temperatures across Australia have generally been well above average since September 2012. Long periods of warmer-than-average days have been common, with a distinct lack of cold weather.”
    The bureau said that Australia’s 2012-2013 summer was the warmest on record, and included a prolonged national heatwave which ended on January 19, 2013 — the first day since 31 December, 2012 that it did not reach 45 degrees Celsius (113 F) somewhere in the nation.
    Spring was also the warmest on record and winter the third warmest, meaning that overall, the annual national mean temperature was 1.20 degrees Celsius above average.
    The bureau pointed to destructive fires, in the island state of Tasmania in early 2013, which were followed by a record warm and dry winter across the country.
    Spring appeared to arrive early and culminated in “the most destructive fires in the Sydney region since at least 1968″.”

    @Jase99

    That does not excuse anyone for deciding that global warming is going on. Yes there are warming changes, we know it has gone on for thousand of years.

    From villages in Greenland found under a large slap of ice. To when a volcano in Iceland erupted causing North America to have a 40 degree average temperature. Or in 1815 the year without a summer.

    The Bible called the lands a wilderness not a desert, Santa Ana, marched his people through a snow storm going to the Alamo. That was caused by what is called the mini-ice age that ended in the late 1800s.

    About the volcanoes.

    Dude, you know this is now two or three times you accused someone of something, when you are committing the same wrong.

    So would everyone else what your point, at lest the White supremacist but you just commented on something with no value, little truth and less relevance.

    Attacking people is not an argument.

    To get back on track a science ship studying global warming got stuck in the ice during the Antarctica summer plus a Chinese ice breaker as well. The U.S. is spending over 22 billion dollars this year. On top of that government regulations take more money out of everybody’s pockets so no one knows how much this cost. When few people are doing as much and our country is expected to do more.

    Will we set an example and the world will not follow,

    Oh I almost forgot, wasn’t the earth one big tropical planet during the dinosaurs?

    Tigger, you’re conflating two things. There ARE natural cycles — no one has ever denied that — and sometimes they have generated hotter climates. As a matter of fact, some of those ARE related to CO2 levels in the atmosphere; just not from burning fossil fuels!
    There are also numerous other factors involved in climate, ranging from the albedo of polar ice (more ice = more reflected sunlight) and forests (more forest = more absorbed sunlight), to volcanic contributions to the atmosphere.
    The difference this time is this is not going down despite other factors (e.g., the solar cycle should be leading to colder temps, and it isn’t). This is in conflict with natural cycles.
    And this pattern is the warmest in (accurate) recorded history. Not all that long, perhaps, but it conflicts with what we have been able to estimate in other periods, and it correlates with levels we see in periods with higher CO2.
