Harsh weather everywhere. England gets 100 MPH-plus winds and sees wettest January on record. Blame it on global warming, right?

  1. Yes
  2. No

Yea, or maybe it's a fact that the government cares nothing about the weather or your comfort and a great deal about control. Control of people and control of money.

Until a global warming expert can legitimately explain to me how the planet experienced drastic climate changes before the industrial revolution (never been able to find one who could yet), then I don't care to listen to any of them if they're blaming it on mankind. I'm not stupid enough to think we have no impact on our environment, but I'm also not stupid enough to think that we supersede nature. Climate change is very real, and very natural.

But blame the weather on global warming? Of course! Everything has to be blamed on someone, isn't that how our society works now? Nothing can just happen, it's always someone's fault.

Also, I made it in here before TripleD comes in and lectures us with his infinite wisdom and more links to MoveOn****, the UN and the Center for American Progress. And then tries to tell us it isn't a left, right issue...lol

Side comment, and I may have faulty memory, but when Bigfoot came up, I think Grant said something to the effect of IF you believe in evolution, you have to acknowledge that Bigfoot could be.

I gotta say, I appreciated the "if" in his comments.

To explain what I just meant, by putting it that way Grant kept us from wandering down rabbit holes of evolution vs creation when the subject was a kid who blamed an accident on Bigfoot.

Ladybug, Clarify this please. "Now the government is responsible for the weather."

I am confused by that remark. Are you saying that in a response to Mtlhed's comment as if that is what he thought he meant, which means, what he wrote went over your head like a 747! OR, are you saying, that Government is trying to CONTROL the weather climate? Just curious?

Beaumont sez: "What can you say about a simple question. Why get political!"

Because unfortunately dear fellow American, grin, Al Gore made it political with his scheme that was successful in making him quite a huge profit and he pointed the political finger of blame that Republicans don't care the world is coming to an end because of mankind's bad bad bad behavior! Even though I laugh my butt off every time Mother nature and Mother eart, trump his sorry butt and makes him look like a blooming idiot! LOL

Here is how I feel about global warming or climate change. Mankind is good, we are advanced in technology, the experts are "wow"ing us with the scientific facts that they can pull together as a POSSIBILITY of what may or may not be happening. Absolute proof has never been achieved.

Even if that was to happen and every American was to agree...eeeks, we are killing earth, we still are only one nation in a big global community. Our little efforts would not guarantee a fix, because that means the whole entire, rest of the world would have to get on board. That will never happen, ever. We can't just fix the space and air above America, now can we? Just my thoughts as if it makes a difference to anyone. Politics is the game and the truth weaved in and out. It is a pick and choose side battle, right and wrong went out the picture a long time ago!

For the meantime, I think I will live for the moment and cherish the remainder of days I have on ole earth and enjoy the ever changing seasons of earth. Hot, cold, colorful, dull, wet, dry, blah blah blah.

Not too sure I am cherishing the cold and ice. There's a cute YouTube video of a 4 yr old called Jesus Make It Warm. The title gives away the punch line, but it about sums it up for me!

LOL, questioner, I saw that video. When that precious little boy bundled up the way he was and holding that little shovel trying to scoop that snow and he looks to the sky and blurts that out I was crying from laughing so hard!

Any the how, the weather it is what is and we own it, not a lot we can do about it except prepare for it, deal with it to the best of our ability and go forward! Mother Earth and Mother Nature know what they have to do to adjust the balance. We are just going to have to accept it. It is bigger than any of is! LOL

Hey, someone help me out on another question, please. I don't want to argue, I just want to know if I'm reading something correct--any and all of you could tell me and I'd accept your viewpoint.

It's the Panel backs Planning Commission article.

Thanks.

"Since 1900, the Earth's temperature has risen only 1 degree C. I'd call that remarkably stable, wouldn't you?" One degree Celsius, and I am not saying that number is correct, is a big jump and you now see the result in polar vortex events, droughts, floods, etc. Just think what a 2 degree shift would do.

Currently only 66% in this poll say global warming is not to blame. You people are starting to get soft on this subject. A few more megastorms and we might actually be able to educate some of you. In the meantime we can just let 'nature' take its course.

Averaged over all land and ocean surfaces, temperatures warmed roughly 1.53°F (0.85ºC) from 1880 to 2012, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. So only .85 degrees Celsius has given us these extreme weather changes. The really bad thing about that is the temperature shift over the last 30 years has really taken off with 2012 being the warmest year on record. Of course most of you continue to blame poor Al Gore for the current weather. Good luck with that.

My nephew is coming over fro dinner tomorrow. We normally take turns cooking Sunday meals. For this Sunday I decided to do a Pot Roast in a crock pot. What does this have to do with Global Warming you ask, well, when I bought the chuck roast to use in the crock pot I got a little bit of sticker shock. I always considered Chuck roast a cheaper cut of meat. This roast was 3.91 lbs at 5.98 per pound or $23.38 for the roast. Why has the price of beef gone through the roof?

"U.S. Cattle Herd Shrinking to 63-Year Low Means Record Beef Cost. The cattle herd in the U.S., the world’s largest beef producer, probably fell to the smallest in 63 years, a Bloomberg survey showed. More than 80 percent of Texas, the biggest producing state, is still abnormally dry, and ranchers are struggling to recover. Fewer cattle will mean production in the $85 billion beef industry drops to a 20-year low in 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said. Retail costs for the meat are at an all-time high.&qu

The 'U.S. Cattle Herd Shrinking to 63-Year' may actually help as it will cut methane gas which is 100 times more potent than CO2 when it come to global warming. In the mean time we will all pay the price for ignoring the problem.
