It was 26 here this morning, and is only up to 38 right now. I'm going to turn up the heat and make Duke Energy burn some more coal and see if we can help this global warming thing along a little bit!

Heavy snow and sub-zero temperatures have been causing another day of disruption to northern Europe and its transport network.

Thousands of railway passengers had to spend the night in trains in Germany as snow paralysed many high-speed inter-city routes.

Flights were disrupted in the UK, France, the Netherlands and Germany. </div></div>

Irradic weather trends are part of the results of Global Warming.

colder in some warm place, and warmer in some cold places.

Global Warrming is a fact.

We are way behind, and that is because the dirty fuel Industries pays scientists to lie for them.

33 here this morning as I went outside to work. I texted a friend in New York, hoping she would scoff and tell me how much colder she was so I could feel better. She said it was 32.

Just checked the temp on my porch, and it's 47 degrees here...not bad for here.

It was very cold this morning, though, I had to come back home and finish my run on the treadmill. Bad for the lungs to run when it's real cold.

Not the global Scientific opnion, Ed.

This is a subject I've read a lot about, and I can tell you, it has been proven, not only that those scientists who deny that global warming is a fact, are being paid off by the dirty fosile fuel, energy industry, but also that human activity, is grealy contributing to the crisis, in fact, the main cause


The climate change we are seeing, now, is not comparable to other climate changes in history, which came on very, very slowly, over hunderds of thousand of years, while the climate changes we are seeing, now, are coming on at an alarmingly, fast, rate of time, never before occuring, in recorded history, nor in the findings of historical cientific analysis.

The Global Scientific Community, agrees by 98% of it's members, that Global Warming is a fact, and they it is caused by human activity.

China, BTW, is way in front, on research and development, and their scientists, are in agreement, with the Global Scientific Community.

As far as is known, and can be documented, only America, is in the business of paying off Scientists to lie about the dangers of Global Warming....

Again, will they please open another factory so we can get some heat over here?

Quick question, let's say everyone agreed with the scientists and the governments quit paying them, essentially putting them out of work. Do you think they would suck off the taxpayer teet for 99 months waiting for another lab position or do you think they would make the ends meet by working at McDonalds?

Scientific study is based upon trying to disprove your own findings, Ed.

why do you only think people are only out for money, when you don't like what they are saying?

Is the Military-Congressional, Industrial Complex, only out for money?

Are the corporations who gave all of those billions to the Republicans, only out for money?

Is Sarah Palin, only out for money?

I've never said any whistle blower, or respected statesman, or former Sec. Of State, wrote their book, just for the money.

It is, OTOH, a fact, that a group of scientists were found to have slanted thier views on G.Warming, because they were paid by a given industry, to strengthen the view they desired, much like a Bush run up to war....or torture.

Get real! They all write their books for one reason...money!

Of course, is Sarah writes a book to make money, that's bad.
But if Clinton writes a book to make money, that's good.
But if Bush writes a book to make money, that's bad.
But if Obama writes a book to make money, that's good.

"The GOP is stampeding toward an absolutist rejection of climate science that appears <u>unmatched among major political parties around the globe,</u> even conservative ones," Brownstein wrote.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists</span> -- and just about every accredited international scientific institution in the world -- <span style='font-size: 20pt'>unequivocally agree that global warming is occurring and is fueled by human activity.</span></div></div>

All due respect, Ed, as you have every right to your opinion, however, I find this post of yours, so stunningly uninformed, and radically far flung from the subject, and the reality of the documented studies, I am not inspired to address it with you.

It would be about as fruitless, as arguing with people who think that a man can live inside of a whale.

It is a waste of my time, at this point.

If you ever study the Science on this subject, perhaps we can take another stabe at discussing the issue at some later date.

Hashing over ridiculous RW distortions, with a rightie, isn't worth my time.

Interesting, you acknowledge China's disastrous pollution problems, but deny the damage from pollutions, protected by Republicans, right here in America.
