Most Americans believe global warming is making severe weather worse, new study shows

Apr 23, 2012 Full story: www.nj.com 49

Climate science may still be on the fence, but the majority of Americans now believe global warming is making severe weather events worse in the United States, a new study shows.

The study, conducted in March by researchers from Yale and George Mason Universities, says 69 percent of Americans agree that the warming of the Earth is playing some kind of role in the weather affecting the nation. In the northeastern part of the country, 71 percent of respondents believed this to be true.

Look, the Earth is constantly going through changes. Any change in solar activity, tilt in the axis, speed of the rotation, and our magnetic sphere effect the climate and weather.

Lets take a look over the past couple of years.

Solar activity has increased to its 11 year high (btw, it has an 11 year cycle for solar storms).

The earthquake in south america that happened about a year or two ago increased our speed of rotation by 1 second. Also it slightly turned our axis.

Finally, the magnetic pole is shifting. Presently magnetic north is shifting towards Siberia.

So for those that say this is all man made, their nuts and off of their rockers. But they have the right to speak whatever non sense they want. But, when these people try to take away your rights for the so called "good of the Earth", then you need to start to question these idiots.

It is not about the good of the earth, bu8t, 100% about control.

This whole "sky is falling" is bullsh1t.

A simple question for the alarmists, what season occurs after winter? And what changes does the weather make?

Simple, Spring, then turns into Summer. The weather warms. The Earth ended a 500 year Little Ice Age c.1850. DUH! Of course the Earth is f**king warming. No sh1t! And it will freeze again, then warm again, then freeze, then warm. It is cyclic. OMG! Even a retarded autistic mute 1 year old can understand this simple fact.

Do any of the "climate scholars" (aka alarmists) know what occurred BEFORE the Little Ice Age? Medieval Warm Period. Imagine that! The Earth cooled after warming, now it is warming after cooling.

Alarmists all bought into the corporate scam.

So too the Earth cooling off makes the weather change!...Just BS,with LOONY Phoney Data,...No body ask my opeion??..If you ask LOONS well ya get what you want to sell Their.BS

Ever wonder why Greenland is called Green?...Because it ways..Vine land ,Nova Scotia,...Vikings Settled in these places...Grass ,Grapes,..until Earth went thru its normal cycle...it GOT COLD...Freezing ICE AGE COLD...So much for the Vikings.But now again it may get GREEN again..NORMAL CLIMATE CHANGE!!

Just an example of Earths ever changing climate.....In 1974,The Same LOONS were selling FEAR that America was entering an ICE AGE....Now The Same FLIM FLAM LOONS selling FEAR again...What is it ??Are We Getting HOT,or COLD....,,The answer is What Period you are in!

LOONS are selling FEAR!....there is Big Money in it .Like a GORE CHARLTON.Fleecing Millions!from LOONS!

We could use a warm cycle,its good for life,Things Grow,food gets plentiful,..not unlike going on Vacation to tropical places....Or Would you like a MINI ICE AGE AGAIN..which brought ,Famine,Plague,Death....

The GREEN JERKS are just that..CHICKEN LITTLE'S...Making Money off the Dumb,Stupid,Gullible, NITWITS,of which LOONS ARE!....

Get Yer Sun tan,Surfs up,Throw out yer long Johns,Get rid of yer snow shovels,....The world is is giving us a GIFT....Enjoy it..for The ICE will return,as it has ,many times before..But we won't be Here!!

Where did it say it was "all man made"? The article seems to state the majority of people believe warming global temps are making storms more severe. I didn't see anything about the cause of said warming. That said, only a moron would think the trillions of tons of CO2 we're pumping into the atmosphere isn't exacerbating the natural warming cycle.

Just what rights are "these people" trying to take away? As far as I know, there is no right to drive a 10mpg SUV, or a right to build a coal fired electric plant, or a right to dump pollution unchecked into our air/water/soil.

No one claimed otherwise. If you bothered to read the article, it simply stated people believe that those warming temps are playing a part in the increased severity of storms.

At least you're getting your morning exercise jumping to conclusions.

You're making the same mistakes as those you criticise. Just because we've had freeze/thaw periods in the past doesn't mean we will have the same cyles going forward. Scientist make this mistake all the time- for example, just because a particular fault line has moved 1" per year for the past 50 years doesn't mean it will move 1" per year in the future. Just because the moon is currently moving away from the earth at a current rate of 4cm per year, doesn't mean you can assume it will be 400cm farther away 100 years from now, or extrapolate that rate back in time 10,000 years.

Whether you believe the current global warming theory or not, don't make the same mistakes with you own assumptions.

For the record, I believe the current scientific methods are the most precise we've ever had and many theories are most likely correct. However, that doesn't mean scientists can't be wrong. The best scientific minds of their time thought the earth was flat, the sun revolved around the earth, disease was caused by evil spirits or doing "bad things", the earth was 10,000 years old, humans rode dinosaurs, etc, etc.

I was referencing topics from the man made global warming community. Just the other day, one scientist was saying that a fire department must let a skeptics house burn to the ground during the a fire because they do not understand what the skeptic is doing to the enviroment.

Another said about 2 weeks that skeptics should be committed and vaccinated.

Then you should have posted that on the "man made global warming" site where it would be relevant.

Last winter was one of the warmest the US has seen. We had 3 straight weeks of 70 degree temps in early March, in MICHIGAN!

EVERY BODY TALKS ABOUT THE WEATHER,and NO BODY CAN DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT....Have fun!
