Since then I have had one birthday where there was even a trace of snow on the ground and we've had only one blizzard in these parts the last 12 years. I am going to have a hard time believing anyone who says that the average global temperature is not increasing based on what I've witnessed in my own short life experiences, to quote one of my professors, "We haven't had a winter since 1997." Last winter (07/08) was the coldest winter of this decade and yet when one compares it to the historical averages it was still slightly above normal for average temperature. I remember having to wear costumes over my winter clothes for Halloween, now I see people wearing shorts and t-shirts as part of their costumes. Winters are shorter, summers longer and drier. That's just my observations living in the Midwest where the effects of any sort of climate change should be less severe, I can't imagine what it's like on one of the hundreds of inhabited islands throughout the world in danger of completely disappearing as water levels rise.
Seems like your recent weather is making up for lost time.

Yes, it is spring, high was 50 today, I didn't even bother grabbing a sweat shirt before leaving the house.

You never know what nature is going to throw at you. In November it was generally around 20 degrees out, then we get one day where it was in the 60s. Weird.

It's April and we're still wearing jackets and it's been that way all throughout with the exception of only a handful of days.

What I have missed so far is the difference between the accelerated green-house and the natural green house effect. If you take into account the Co2 makes up for a mere 0.3% of the total atmosphere, what do you think mans influence will be?
And the fact that there has been a green house-effect for the past 4.6 billion years and man has only been around for 250.000 years.... you do the math.
Finally, with out the natural green house-effect we would all be dead. Earth's temperature would be around - a lot of degrees centigrade or Fahrenheit.

In short, nobody really knows what causes it and if the effect are detrimental... We will see..... better said; or grandchildrens grandchildren will see.

I'd say Ted's assessment is pretty good here.

And because we don't understand, we've turned it into a new age religion.

Yes, and I understand that with or without man-kind, the planet controls and adjusts as required; If big changes call for a little more or less and that, it is taken care of .The parasites(?) on the surface are of little consequence . For example, the Ice Age was ended by volcanic eruption, just what was required. We should stop talking of saving the planet and concentrate on how man-kind is to survive. Whatever happens in that respect, the world will thrive, greenhouse gases galore and without being concreted over.

It is a very organised creation just about beyond our ken, and whether it was meant for us or not we may well be about to find out.
