Okay, if it's such a big deal why don't the people who honestly believe in global warming live like the Amish? Don't use cars, grow ALL your own produce (they get to your stores in trucks, not magic). Also make your own clothes form wool that you got from the sheep you raised, so on and do fourth. I just can't take scientists who preach global warming seriously because they don't live by what they say.

Heard on NPR (yes, I listen to it, I'm a liberal, call me names, get it over with) that we appear to be in the same world-wide drought cycle that preceded the Dustbowl conditions of the Great Depression. Additionally, less than ten years ago, we had over a 100 day of 'hold over' corn, corn that was still bring held from the past year's crop...leftovers, so to speak. We're now sitting on around 80 days, if I remember correctly. Food for thought. But, naaaah, it can't be global warming. Right.
You do know what caused the dustbowl, right?

The history and science I've read indicate that it was a combination of poor farming practices and drought. Ocean temperatures were off and they believe the jet stream variations contributed. Crops failed, were replanted, degrading the soil each time. All I know is that, among other things, enough dust was created that 'black blizzards' were fairly common, one reached all the way to New York City, and if we can possibly avert another scenario such as this it is worth the effort

Scientist say we have never been as hot as we are now! At least since records have been kept.
They are saying we may have to get used to the new normal!!

The sea ice in the Arctic Ocean has melted to its smallest point ever in a milestone that may show that worst-case forecasts on climate change are coming true, US scientists said.

Climate Change

We can’t say that Hurricane Sandy is due to global warming — for pretty much the exact same reason that we can’t say that a particular case of lung cancer isn’t due to cigarette smoking. Causality doesn’t work that way. Maybe this confluence of summer and winter storms would have happened even if our atmospheric energy levels were as they were a hundred years ago. We can’t say for sure — we can just say that this is consistent with the model of the kinds of storms that we should expect to become more frequent as carbon dioxide and other gases trap more heat in the biosphere, leading to storms having more energy around them to turn from heat into force.(Warmer waters means stronger hurricanes. I wonder how many Americans don’t even know that.)

Meghan McCain Says Hurricane Sandy is Proof of Global Warming

Meghan McCain is challenging
widespread GOP skepticism about climate change in the wake of Hurricane
Sandy.“So are we still going to go with climate change not being
real fellow republicans [sic]?” McCain wrote, via Twitter, around
midnight as the storm was slamming ashore.

McCain’s father has advocated for curbing greenhouse gas emissions and co-sponsored cap-and-trade bills several years ago.However,
substantial numbers of Republicans now dispute widely held scientific
views about global warming and the extent of humans’ contribution.
As Sandy menaced the East Coast, some climate activists and scientists
used the storm to point out links between climate change and extreme
weather.

Scientists urge caution about attributing specific
weather events to climate change. But experts warn that warmer ocean
waters, greater atmospheric moisture and other factors are fueling the
intensity of storms, and that rising sea levels will make coastal
impacts worse.

WASHINGTON (AP)— America set an off-the-charts heat record in 2012.
A brutal combination of a widespread drought and a mostly absent winter pushed the average annual U.S. temperature last year up to 55.32 degrees Fahrenheit, the government announced Tuesday. That's a full degree warmer than the old record set in 1998.
Breaking temperature records by an entire degree is unprecedented, scientists say. Normally, records are broken by a tenth of a degree or so.
"It was off the chart," said Deke Arndt, head of climate monitoring at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C., which calculated the temperature records.
Last year, he said, will go down as "a huge exclamation point at the end of a couple decades of warming."

The U. S. of A. could cut emissions to zero and it wouldn't make any difference. China and India will more than make up the difference. Be a good steward of that you have. That is really all you can do.

depends on what news release you look at. noaa.gov says the avg was 63.45, two other years were in the 63's and 1934 was 64.28...... All is based on what you read, sources are different. But the national weather site says 2012 was not the hottest year on record.

Guest 123 claimed the NOAA website said-- 2012 was "not" the hottest year on record {quote}.. but that is "not true"!

Here is what it actually says......

Summary Information-

2012 marked the warmest year on record for the contiguous United States with the year consisting of a record warm spring, second warmest summer, fourth warmest winter and a warmer-than-average autumn. The average temperature for 2012 was 55.3°F, 3.2°F above the 20th century average, and 1.0°F above 1998, the previous warmest year.

Anyone with allergies may want to stock up on tissues and medication, because your allergies are about to get a lot worse.

U.S. allergy specialists say global warming will cause pollen counts to skyrocket over the next 30 years. In 2000, pollen counts average about 8,000. By 2040, pollen counts are expected to surpass 21,000.

The specialists also think allergy season will begin earlier every year.

So the high temperature for today was in the sixties. If Global Warming was behind it, then we need to burn as much fossile fuel as we can. Make more of these hurricanes to keep us cool all summer long.
The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will soon (hopefully) release its Fifth Assessment Report. Earlier reports (2001) declared it likely (66 percent probability) that humans cause global warming. The 2007 report called it “very likely”(a 90 percent probability) that humans cause global warming; the new assessment raises the probability to 95 percent. Modern climate research is better and more accurate and we seem to be destroying our home.

Actually, the assessment will delayed because it was discovered that climate scientists were cherry-picking data to support their theory. The ice flows have actually increased in mass this year.

I'm open to discussion, but not when the scientists are paid via Grant funding from global warming organizations. You're also conveniently leaving out the emails/communications from the UK scientists who were exposed for eliminating data that didn't support their theory (and funding sources).

Let's have a reasonable discussion with objective data.

U.S. justices to hear challenge to Obama on climate change

The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear a challenge to part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's first wave of regulations aimed at tackling climate change.

By agreeing to hear a single question of the many presented by nine different petitioners, the court set up its biggest environmental dispute since 2007.

That question is whether the EPA correctly determined that its decision to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from motor vehicles necessarily required it also to regulate emissions from stationary sources.

The EPA regulations are among President Barack Obama's most significant measures to address climate change. The U.S. Senate in 2010 scuttled his effort to pass a federal law that would, among other things, have set a cap on greenhouse gas emissions.

We will see what the Supreme Court has to say about Global Warming......
