Fossil fuels have been tried and tested; that's why people love to use them. There's never been a trial or test of climate change mitigation, that's why nobody wants it.

Minnesota has finally emerged from subzero temps by the second day of spring.
Wat can a concerned person do to speed this warming process up? Clearly, CO2 is not up to the task!
Get this... Both MN and NM were in the single digits this spring.
Yes, that's great. We're happy for you and won't mention the beautiful weather we have here most of the year.

But what's the 100-year context of this alleged Spring?

Yeah, sure, "Brain(NOT)_G" - that's why I have a doctorate level degree (in a different scientific field) with extra training.

The challenge remains: WHERE IS ALLEY WRONG?

CO2 is the planet's main thermostat. I'm sorry that the truth upsets you, that it conflicts with your political bias, but that's too bad. Scientific facts are true no matter how much you rant otherwise.

Oh, wait, I do recall Phil Jones writing to Dr. Mann that he wished AGW would hurt people so that they would see he was right about how terrible AGW will be.
You perverts are worse than a fundamentalist Christian.

Alley is wrong advocating climate change mitigation when he's unable to point to a compelling experimental test of climate change mitigation. Seatbelts mitigate auto accident injuries; they'be been tried and tested. There's never been a test on any man made greenhouse gas that shows an effect on climate.

And it has been found that burning fossil fuels produces CO2 that is accumulating in the atmosphere. It is known that CO2 is a GHG and is causing global warming.

After adjusting the raw data and smoothing the results we have corrected the final numbers to determine that this spring is the warmest ever recorded in Minnesota ;-)

If you understood what he meant, you'd know it was a metaphor, not a literal description. And if you knew that, there was no reason to whine over and over again how it's "not a thermostat."

Honestly, I think there's something wrong with you.

Your answer is offtopic and can safely be rejected as irrelevant. Either discuss Alley's scientific findings in regard to AGW, or shut up.

Yet another repetition of your ONE IRRELEVANT point. Alley wasn't talking about AGW/CC mitigation, he was talking about the paleohistory of the earth. CO2 has been the primary thermostat of the earth for most of its history.

I'm sorry that scientific facts conflict with your political beliefs, but they're true no matter how many times you try to deny them.

Most of the sea ice that forms each fall and winter in the Arctic now melts each spring and summer, a recent change that is impacting global patterns of weather and trade as well as the U.S. military's strategic planning, experts told reporters during a briefing Tuesday.

"There are tremendous two-way and multiple interactions between the Arctic and the rest of the world," retired Rear Adm. David Titley said during the teleconference organized by Climate Nexus, a group trying to raise awareness about climate change.

Experts tied the melting ice in the Arctic to the recent spate of stormy winter weather in parts of the U.S. and Europe. They also noted that the prospect of ice-free summers in the Arctic as soon as 2030 is already impacting international trade and U.S. Navy plans to protect Arctic resources.

The briefing was held the day after the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) announced that the Arctic sea ice reached its maximum reach for the year on March 15, covering 5.84 million square miles. This is the sixth lowest maximum sea ice coverage in the 35-year satellite record.

"The last 10 years have been the lowest 10 years," said Walt Meier, a research scientist at the NSIDC. He added that while this year was low, "we actually have the largest growth of ice in our record from the minimum to the maximum" primarily because the ice was recovering from the record low in 2012.

In addition to the shrinking extent of sea ice, the remaining ice is thinning perhaps twice as fast as the observed ice extent, noted Wieslaw Maslowski, an oceanographer at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School.

KANGERLUSSUAQ, Greenland — On the Arctic Circle, a chef is growing the kind of vegetables and herbs - potatoes, thyme, tomatoes, green peppers - more fitting for a suburban garden in a temperate zone than a land of Northern Lights, glaciers and musk oxen.

Some Inuit hunters are finding reindeer fatter than ever thanks to more grazing on this frozen tundra, and for some, there is no longer a need to trek hours to find wild herbs.

Welcome to climate change in Greenland, where locals say longer and warmer summers mean the country can grow the kind of crops unheard of years ago.

"Every year we try new things," said Ernst, who even managed to grow a handful of strawberries that he served to some surprised Scandinavian royals. "I first came here in 1999 and no-one would have dreamed of doing this. But now the summer days seem warmer, and longer."

Major commercial crop production is still in its infancy. But it is a sign of changes here that Greenland's government set up a commission this year to study how a changing climate may help farmers increase agricultural production and replace expensive imported foods.

<<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<

So, how come Greenland's government believes the hoax?

Maybe because it's not a hoax?

Real-world observations show us it's all warming up noticeably. Deniers are finding it harder and harder to defend a 'no warming' position, and are falling back on 'it's warming but humans aren't doing it.'

It's almost impossible to be a hard-line Denier and be taken seriously by ANYONE...:)
