Overall, winters have warmed about two to four degrees in the past 30 years or so. One good way to measure it is to look at these number of subzero lows that we're seeing at night.

Quick example: this year we've had five days so far, last year we had three. That's a very low number. If you go back to the 1970s - the whole decade - we had 444 subzero days. During the 1980s we had 280, during the 1990s we had 256; down to 198 in the 2000s. That's a 57% drop in those subzero nights. If you look at that overall the trend lines show we could be down to around 10 on average per winter. We used to average about 30 back in the '70s and we could be maybe closer to zero by 2040. By 2040, in the Twin Cities we could be very close to few or any subzero nights if our current climate trends continue.
Slewsie dear, I am so proud of my gay hubby. Not only are you the Spell Check Queen of Topix, but now you prove you are Al Gore Jr. And you did it without cutting and pasting anything. LMAOROLFU~!

Could all of the space debry that falls back to earth have anything to do with the ozone layer problem? What about all of the rockets that burn through to outer space to send stuff that will eventually come back down ?
What goes up must come down. It's not just those huge rockets burning through the ozone layer, it is all the thousands of jet airplanes leaving trails in the upper atmosphere too. They want to blame it all on automobiles though.

Most people don't realize that GHG theory states that warming will be greatest at night, in the winter, and near the poles. Warming will be least during the day, in the summer, and near the equator.

It's astounding to me that with all of the data showing precisely this taking place, denier wingnuts still claim that the sun is causing warming. If it were the sun, warming would be greatest during the day, in the summer, and near the equator.

Also, the upper atmosphere is cooling, as GHG theory predicts, instead of warming as it would if caused by the sun.

In other words, the lying wingnuts are proven wrong by four different data sets, but denier lies never die.

Yet another (dishonest) concession from the 100% science-free grand poohba of all nutters.

Thanks again. Don't stop now; maybe if you fail to support your wingnuttery with science 1000 times in a row, the intellectual bankruptcy of denial will even be obvious to a microencepholitic sloth like Ralph.

Hey Liberal goofballs!!!

The Earth magnetic field had been weakening. And it had been shown that it allows the sun to have greater influence on Earth's temperature!

The really interesting thing is this: ever since Gauss first measured the strength of the field, it has been dropping. Over the 170 years or so since the first measurements, the main field has decayed by some 8 or 9% and this has led to all sorts of speculation as to whether we are heading for some big geomagnetic event, like a reversal. It is true that this is quite a large drop- if the geodynamo suddenly stopped the field would only decay quite slowly- about 1% per century- but it is also likely that this sort of variation is not uncommon. The big question is how long was this going on for before people were first able to measure it?

One more proof that Global Warming is just junk science for a socialist agenda!

The earth's magnetic field impacts climate: Danish study
COPENHAGEN (AFP)-- The earth's climate has been significantly affected by the planet's magnetic field, according to a Danish study published Monday that could challenge the notion that human emissions are responsible for global warming.
"Our results show a strong correlation between the strength of the earth's magnetic field and the amount of precipitation in the tropics," one of the two Danish geophysicists behind the study, Mads Faurschou Knudsen of the geology department at Aarhus University in western Denmark, told the Videnskab journal.

There is no experiment that shows climate change mitigation is feasible or even possible. That's how you can know it's a hoax.

More utter nonsense from you Jose. "Liberals" don't "ignore" this evidence; it's been refuted. If you actually care to learn something, & see exactly why Svensmark is incorrect, read some science here:

http://www.skepticalscience.com/cosmic-rays-a...

You can select a basic, intermediate or advanced level for the science. Svensmark is just wrong. He's now publishing a book because he can't pass peer review. Other scientists are aware that he's wrong.
