It's no longer Global Warming.
Al Gore now calls it "Climate Change."

Apparently, there were some "inconsistencies" in the computer models. Every three months or so there is an alarming change in weather! I suggest we call it "Seasonal Change." Perhaps we could name each "Season." How about: "Winter," "Sprin...g," "Summer", and "Fall?" Of course, there is the anomoly of Hawaii where it is "Summer" all year.

Hey man, why does my lipo get bigger every time I charge it?

Yah the planets doing great. Just look at all the snow at disney world. People fail to realize global warming means rapid swings in the environment. Winters will get colder and colder, while summers get hotter and hotter. The facts are there period. There's a reason wild hogs are migrating further north every year yet they have been here for 600 years and decided just last year to start moving north. There's also a reason all the sea lions in SF split for no reason. Quit listening to propaganda and open your eyes. If you don't its you children who are going to suffer.

Its all about control, your politicians (and mine) will scare you in every way possible to control you. Terrorists, global warming, health care.... the list goes on.

Trouble is most Westerners are so spoiled and gutless that its working.

As Canada became more and more socialist I always had the backup plan of moving to the states. That is gone as you guys are now going down the socialist path much faster then us.

fwiw...

As a person with a fairly wide exposure to practical physics...The earth is a system...If you add or subtract heat from a system, you have net heat left...There is no "Cold" in physics...So if you have a hotter summer, then a colder winter, what in the net delta of heat?....Probably zero...

hmmm lets think, who has more invested personal interest in this? Al Gore and the billions you think he is making on global warming with his internet show? Or the billions upon billions being made off of fossil fuels and petrol? Really guys I'm not sure if you are just kids and haven't been around very long. Or the truth is just so bad that you refuse to believe it? I know from fact that the weather patterns are completely different then when I was a kid. I remember summers when it was big news when the temps in arizona would go over 100. Now 110 115 is normal.

About the colder winters and hotter summers balancing things out thats just insane. Our environment cannot handle those kinds of changes. It take evolution at a minimum a 1000 years to compensate for the changes were seeing in 10-20 years. While you may have a back ground in physics I have many family members with PHD's in environmental science. There is no question what is happening anymore.

All I can say is I fear for our future. If not from global warming most certainly from the education our children are getting. Kids are plain retarted compared to when I grew up.

How ignorant
Its his ties to the proposed cap & trade and carbon credit trading that is making him ultra wealthy, not his stupid internet show.
Or the billions upon billions being made off of fossil fuels and petrol?
So come up with practical and competitive alternatives, and those billions will be yours.
Quit listening to propaganda and open your eyes. If you don't its you children who are going to suffer.
First you say that, and then you post a video titled "Baloney Detection" where the narrator specifically says "maybe global warming is leaning towards that now". He did NOT say that it is. Yet, you are 100% convinced that it is... The science is not settled.
I know from fact that the weather patterns are completely different then when I was a kid.
And they were different before your life, and different before that, and will be different long after your gone.
All I can say is I fear for our future.
Quit listening to propaganda and open your eyes.

Weather patterns are changing, no question, its summer here in NZ and seems like there is more rain and is cooler than it should be. Saying that Australia next door is having record heat temperatures and massive floods in other areas that are normally drought areas this time of the year. Europe and pars of the USA are gripped in low temperatures so the Ying/Yang argument could be argued as true.

But what scares me the most is that the Ice at the Arctic and Antarctic poles is melting and the volume of ice receding dramatically. These are two of the biggest land masses and heat sinks on the planet. If they are melting and you don't need to be a rocket scientist to view Satellite images over the last 50 years to see they are receding fast. This means overall the world is getting warmer - I am not sure how anyone can argue against this.

I don't propose to know the true reason, It clearly happens ever zillion years but it does seem like its happening very fast this cycle and it seems reasonable to assume Man is the cause.

Antarctic sea ice is growing while at the other pole, Arctic ice is shrinking.
If they are melting and you don't need to be a rocket scientist to view Satellite images over the last 50 years to see they are receding fast.
No, but you do have to look at the images, and know when those images where taken. Satellite images of the sea ice only date back to 1978.
This means overall the world is getting warmer - I am not sure how anyone can argue against this.
The earth did warm up from 1978 to 1998. Since then, it has remained about the same. So, has global warming stopped? Has it reversed? Nobody can give an honest answer, because we don't know yet.
but it does seem like its happening very fast this cycle and it seems reasonable to assume Man is the cause.
It's not happening any faster than the mini-ice age of the 1600's, and it's certainly not happening faster than the dust bowl of the 1930's. You just think it is, because you are experiencing it this time. Historical accounts say otherwise. Actually, the earth has been warming since about 1600!

maxpower097,

You must resort to calling people kids to strengthen your argument? I know these forums probably have a lot of highly educated people however this usually means no common sense.

Children today are getting a much better education as they are the information age generation. Kids get knowledge from many different sources. Not just from some prof at their left wing loonie university.

In my industry if the guy tells me hes from uni, I move on to the next candidate that pulled his "schooling" from many different sources.

As far as "environmental scientists" vs physics...I'll still take physics every time....
