People arguing about Climate Change are like two people arguing about the smell of smoke inside a house that is burning down.

It's scientific fact, everyone knows it and all the valid scientists agree, take a look at the drought graphs for this year.

Stop being an ostrich.

The things that we need to do to combat climate change are good for everyone any way: more solar power, more wind power, and more hydroelectric power. Only an idiot would be against that.

Just over half of the counties in the U.S. are now labeled "natural disaster areas" after the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Wednesday added 218 counties in 12 states to the list.

With drought drying up food crops and animal feedstock, the USDA also said it was allowing haying and grazing on 3.8 million protected acres, many of them wetlands, and that insurance companies agreed to a 30-day grace period for farmers on insurance premiums.

Across 32 states, ranchers and farmers in 1,584 counties -- 50.3 percent of the total -- are now eligible for low-interest loans. Some 90 percent of those counties were listed due to drought conditions.

That's a new record and one that's been broken repeatedly in recent weeks as more counties have been added. The declarations first started on July 12.

On Monday, the USDA rated as "good-to-excellent" just 24 percent of the corn crop and 29 percent of the soybean crop, both down 2 percentage points from the previous week.

Now remember, denier wimps, when it snows like crazy in New York and Pennsylvania this winter, it's because really cold air is passing over very warm Great Lakes.

The very warm lakes are because of the very hot spring and summer.

The very hot spring and summer (although a single event cannot be ascribed to global warming) are caused by the likelihood that extreme events like this are caused by (though we can't ascribe a single year's weather to global warming) global warming.

How many solar panels do you have?

You recycle everything possible, of course?

I see, so you're basing your argument on a "likelihood" that a global temperature rise of 0.74º C over the last 162 years is 'likely' to be the cause of almost anything that goes wrong on the planet.

How about that the post had earned them. How about the fact that the article which you failed to quote or link to mentioned that this happens every year and that the water refreezes in the winter. That surprise, ice melts in the summer. Maybe I should go back and add a few more to that post.

Even when they ringed with ice to a mile out? Funny thing about the heat in the Great Lakes, it is flowing out of the lakes during the fall and being replaced with cooler water. Not to mention the first Ablerta Clipper of the season will cool them down considerable amount.

Actually, looking at the current water temps in Lake Erie and comparing them to what they were when I swam in the lake when I was a girl and it looks like nothing has changed. It is just as warm as it was back in the 70's.

So, it looks like the 76 degrees I saw is no warmer than the water I learned to swim in.

Except there are no experimental tests of climate change mitigation that show any climate change. Lot's of smoke but no fire.

Not one experiment. Zero.

It's facetious statements like this, grandma, that give rise to the notion that you don't understand the role Earth temp play in CC, Grandma. Nor do you understand the effect CC has on the flora and fauna. Like you see .74 C and your untrained pea brain signals how small a number that is. Your lack of logic tells you that little can't do that much. Well, Grannie, your wrong; competent scientists in the field say so, math models say so, observations say so. But you know better. Don't you, Grannie?

BTB, Memaw, the fact that CO2 concentrations caused by man- and the associated temp change- happened in such a short period of time is remarkable to say the least, but don't lose sight of the fact the Earth's weather is being made at different temps than it was 160 YA.
Learn some weather, Grannie grunt, or keep making a fool of yourself.

Not bilingual, like you, and not interested in paying ANY attention to a second language grammar-nazi.

What I was doing, Mr. Non-American Who Doesn't Belong On An American Forum, was quoting a Hollywood production called "The Terminator", in which the line is, "No problemo, dude." If they've got the gender or syntax or grammar or spelling wrong, phone them about it and insist on a higher standard.

As for your link, I'll look when I get time. And if I know you, it'll be a waste of time.

Funny what an idiot you are.

The water flowing into Erie will be warmer than average. That'll make everything warmer going into winter.

The guys who know say Erie has warmed an average of 2F in the past 30 years. You probably couldn't feel that. That's why real scientists use thermometers instead of sticking their toes in the water.

Funny how you forgot actually after all that the heat storage properties of water means that actually after all you forgot that one storm won't cool the lakes appreciably.

But by far the best thing about your post is that we now have the answer to why you're so abysmally stupid. You learned to swim in Lake Erie in the '70's when it was a cesspool of human and industrial waste. It's no wonder you're brain damaged.

Or maybe it's funny.

Thought is a noun also. Do look it up. You'll find you used it correctly about me.

REAL planet lovers are relieved that consensus and climate change itself were tragic exaggerations and thus leaving the planet avoiding the worst crisis imaginable; a climate crisis. NOTHING could be worse outside of a comet hit. You can’t have a little tiny climate crisis, either it is or it isn’t a crisis. Here is what is behind the grunt of; “All of science agrees. Amen”:
They don’t agree it is a crisis, only that it’s "real and happening" because they have never said it was certain (only “likely etc.”), and every scientist and organization has their own special views on CO2’s effects. Consensus is impossible. It’s just a headline. Be happy.
-Occupywallstreet does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded carbon trading stock markets run by corporations.
-Julian Assange is of course a climate change denier.
-Obama has not mentioned the crisis in the last two State of the Unions addresses.
-Canada killed Kyoto with a newly elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (death).
We condemned billions of children. Who was the neocon again here?
As long as the scientists are not saying it is certain, it is not a crisis and 26 years with millions of studies should have provided us with “captaincy” not “maybes”.

Dear caveman1,

http://www.numberwatch.co.uk/warmlist.htm
is a valuable webpage for anyone, regardless of their belief system. The "warmlist" contains many published claims that suggest climate change has and will adversely effect life on our planet.

Sincerely,
koolaid
