When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

So what? Don't get your girly panties in a wad about it.

Instead, why don't you educate yourself about it instead of hyperventilating and pushing the panic button. It's called a CYCLE.

Weather patterns/cycles have been going on before you were here. And will continue long after. You are shortsighted and gullible.

It has gotten hot everywhere around the world at one point or another!
Years ago it was 105* in Michigan and over 100* for a week. It's called A HOT SPELL.

'Ancient pollen and charcoal preserved in deeply buried sediments in Egypt's Nile Delta document the region's ancient droughts and fires, including a huge drought 4,200 years ago associated with the demise of Egypt's Old Kingdom.

Death on the Nile: Researchers believe climate change brought 'mega drought' that ended an Egyptian kingdom 4,200 years ago

Researchers analysed pollen and charcoal levels in the Nile and found evidence of massive fires and few crops; Mega-drought led to famine and demise of the Egyptians.
was the abrupt and global mega-drought around 4,200 years ago, which led to famines and probably played a role in the end of Egyptís Old Kingdom and affected other Mediterranean cultures.

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 Ė whether decadal or millennial."
*****

In plain words for the devout mmcc/cc fanatics....There was MAJOR climate change from lush grassland and abundant water supply and moderate temps in Egypt to HOT DRY DUSTY climate which created major drought thru out the area and caused the Old Kingdom to falter.
*******

Must have been too much oil & fossil fuel burning by the Egyptians back then. Shame they had to stop using their cars and their combustion engines and stop all factory production, isn't it?

If only they had High Priest AL back then to lead them on the right path. Sigh.

Do these warmers know there was an inland sea that split the US in two all the way to Canada?

Reckon they know ice was over a mile thick where New York City not stands?

Seems like it was very warm when the dinosaurs roamed around.

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.

there is nothing you could ever do about it,'bozo'. do you honestly think that there is anything that you can do about the cycle of things that you are preaching about? do you honestly think , that whatever life on earth, faced many years ago, could have stopped, or even affected nature? do you honestly think, you can, or will have any effect on the sun? or the tides? or the sea? thank god we invented the skys, the seas and the ground we walk on 'bozo', someone has got to manage them. so much for common sense, unbelievable.

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?

Terraformed:

The concept relies on the ASSumption that the environment of a planet can be altered through artificial means. In addition, the feasibility of creating a planetary biosphere is UNdetermined. There are several proposed methods, some of which present prohibitive economic and natural resource costs, and others which may be currently technologically achievable.

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.

The ignorant don't know that what they don't understand is understood by scientists because scientists do the science. Duh!
