Warmest year on record for the USA. 2013 starting off the same way.

Forecast is for a LOW of 63 Saturday night in central Mississippi, which is ungodly unusual, as we often experience winter here, even in central Mississippi, except for lately, and I'd say it's a damn good indication of global warming, and you idiots who deny that are just..........idiots.

Let's stay in touch and compare notes over the coming year, shall we?

Do you realize that life terraformed Earth many eons ago?

From NASA:

Solar Variability and Terrestrial Climate

"the luminosity of our own sun varies a measly 0.1% over the course of the 11-year solar cycle. A dawning realization among researchers that even these apparently tiny variations can have a significant effect on terrestrial climate."

lol. No sh*t, Sherlock.

But, but, but...Hansen, an ex- NASA pinhead, said it's our fault!

Please send your check, money order to Hansen @ lying ponzischeme.conman.

ROFL. It really is telling just how ignorant, uneducated & self importand the devout warmies are!

They disagree with written past historical records and facts that are not in dispute & very true.

Warmie rule #1.

If you cannot dispute it, the proven historical or current facts, ignore them, disagree with them, lie about them. Discredit them with no scientific basis. Whatever works.

They must be scared of the geological records too. Or too ignorant to understand. Can't re-write that history to suit your agenda!
lol.

"These events are also recorded in history - the first about 5,000 years ago when the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt happened and the Uruk Kingdom in modern Iraq collapsed, the Geology study says.

The second event 3,000 years ago took place in the eastern Mediterranean and is associated with the fall of the Ugarit Kingdom and famines in the Babylonian and Syrian Kingdoms.

"Humans have a long history of having to deal with climate change," said Christopher Bernhardt, a researcher with the U.S. Geological Survey. "Along with other research, this study geologically reveals that the evolution of societies is sometimes tied to climate variability at all scales – whether decadal or millennial."

You are losing your little mind.
Yes, and provided a link to a University of Cornell web site on the subject. Fusion is a nuclear reaction, just like fission. Both produce energy in the process which in the sun's case involves radation at various wavelenghts.

Looks like you might of lost your little mind a while ago. I sure it found a nice loving home with someone who truely appreciate it. Who knows, it might be me.

Also I notice while you claim I am wrong you have yet to say what is happening with the sun. How does it produce light and heat the way it does if I am wrong. Funny, you can claim I am wrong and yet are unwilling to tell everyone what is happening with the sun. A object man has studied for centuries.

According to NOAA. Funny thing is the NWS is the one who keeps such records and funny thing is they are not saying one way or another.

One in your position should take your own advice. Better to have a mini mind than none at all as you so well display.

I was using the term loosely. The Earth is it's early stages depended upon life, microorganisms, to convert the atmosphere so that it could support life as we know it. These organisms converted CO2 to O2 and organic carbon. The idea is, yes organisms have had a profound effect upon the composition of the atmosphere. Yes, life can change the atmosphere. It has happened before.

How do the conditions 100,000,000 years ago apply today? Do you think it would be desirable for the ocean to rise to those heights once again today? The last ice age was about 14,000 years ago. What caused the climate changes in the past? Atmospheric composition such as concentration of CO2 and CH4, changes is orbit of the Earth (Milankovitch cycles), motion of techtonic plates, solar output, impact of large meteorites, eruptions of super volcanoes. Exactly what is causing the changes today? If you do not know, it would be instructive to rely upon those who have studied those conditions. The Earth is warming. The increasing concentration of atmospheric CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels is responsible for much of the current warming. 2012 was the warmest year ever recorded in the lower USA.
Sheepdip!! There is no man made warming. It is a natural cycle that we can no more control then the number of stars in the sky.
