    What is all the hoopla about Global Warming. If we had Global Warming would we not have all this snow and cold weather. They are a bunch of idiots. Global warming is not here they need to check the cyclical nature of weather as reported by NOAA

    Please, educate yourself. Snow does not mean global warming is a myth. There have been many articles on the subject as of late. Google “global warming snow” and find out for yourself.

    I really think it absolutely unbeleivable people still believe global warming is a myth. Where have you been ? Look around.

    Extreme weather conditions are attributable to a rise in global temperature. Including cold, precipitation. Global warming is not the same as “weather warming”.

      seriously? armageddon? Really? Uhmmmm I ok. (btw its “armageddon” not armgedden”) If you are going to challenge science, please at least seem educated about it. I can now not have an open mind to this nonsense you speak of.

    Global Warming is the earths natural way of cycling the energy provided by the sun, without which there would be no source of warming. the cycles of warming are pleanty and global warmest know this. The attempt to hijack nature for environmental gains is noble at its core but only drives non-environmentalist to believe you are all corrupt. Stop using warming cycles as the crutch for the environment, start coming up with economic solutions (we all can afford) and non-conformist will be onboard, otherwise it will be a lost cause when the cycles turn against the theory and the finger pointing will start. We all need clean energy but we can only have it through research and econimic reality. If you do not believe this try, telling the Chinese to stop burning coal, or try telling a family teatering on the brink of econimic disaster that they need to pay double current costs for heat or gas or fuel for their car or food for the table. These are the realities we need to address.

    Without a common econimic ground for a solution both sides of the argument are wrong.
