    “Global warming” is a catch-all phrase for climate change. Man’s boot print can definitely be the main cause if this wide, weird weather the world is experiencing. 70 degrees in Sochi…in February?

    How do the climate change guys account for the comings and goings of the Ice Ages well before the arrival of Man??

    We already know that the data was falsified to come to the conclusion that was desired. And to continue mtretter’s response: there is a reason that we refer to the last ice age as “the last ice age.” It is because there have been numerous other ice ages. And in between these ice ages, we had a global phenomenon known as global warming. So call it global warming or climate change, or anything else that you want to. It is still a fraud.

    Just a troll. Several of us responded to this question from this troll a couple of weeks ago, but obviously the effort was wasted.

    If you mean “informed individuals who appreciate that human-caused global climate change is occurring,” no, we haven’t been silent. This weather is quite explicable and even predictable.
    More energy in the atmosphere (warming) means more chaotic and extreme weather of all types. Just because the temperature goes up and down doesn’t mean the average isn’t rising.
    Oh, and this snow pattern is EXACTLY what climatologists predicted: warmer air can carry more moisture. So a warmer climate means: (1) fewer snowstorms, because it is too warm to snow, (2) but when it falls, there’s more of it because it’s wetter air.
    Whaddya know!

    Alaska is part of the US and we are having the hottest winter ever.

    To clarify the exaggeration, Alaska was warmer 40,000,000 years ago then got cold.
    1500 years ago Alaska started warming up. 45 years ago the warming increased sixfold at the same time the permafrost hit the melting point and started going liquid.
    ..
    The sudden jump has many causes but increased air temperature has a very large part in this exponential jump in ground temperatures.

    Not a troll. Just want to rely on facts rather than a false hysteria. Do you remember , in the 70’s when the scare was a new ice age coming. Now it is global warming.

    To answer your question, I know that you are wrong.

    I remember the 70’s. That was when the warming became too much to ignore. Those articles you mention about global cooling did not get reprinted in Alaska, we were obviously getting warmer and waited for more data to become available.

    Still getting warmer, and at a faster pace 40 years after the silly cooling articles.
    Don’t stop learning because you guessed wrong, knowledge is power and never stops.

    Okay, if you know, can you tell us how you know?

    Well, if it’s reincarnation, there are a lot more species it won’t be due to HUMAN changes in species composition, due to HABITAT change or loss, which includes climate. Humans indeed are not actually part of “Nature”, claiming under religious law to hold dominion over nature, which means the right to destroy it, and themselves. That changes noted in a couple hundred years took millennia to occur in the “good old days” , using techniques such at tectonic plate movements and uplifts, not just CO2 or burning fossil fuels, forests, and grasslands, thus changing ecologic composition to meet our needs.

    Please note that A) weather and climate are not the same thing and B) the weather is not the same all around the world. Just because we’re having a significant winter (for a change), doesn’t meant that there isn’t drought and an overall increase in the temperature. But you go ahead and keep telling yourself that unchecked dumping of toxins into the air has zero effect on the world.

    I guess you are unfamiliar with how scientific method works. When the model doesn’t support the data, you change the model.
