The thing is mother earth has always gone through changes. At one time the continents were joined, now there not. We were covered in water, frozen stiff and roasted. So I guess all I can say is HERE WE GO AGAIN LOL.

The media are having a field day with this news.
Not to worry, they'll be back to reporting cold, wet, blizzards and gales in a couple of months.

"Scientists blame the warming on carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases pouring into the atmosphere from power plants, cars and trucks, furnaces and other fossil fuel-burning industrial and residential sources."

Thank goodness for the above three experts to set the record straight.

News flash:
it's not the 'predicted weather' that is wacky ...it's the a 'weather predictions' that are wacky.

What's your temperature today? What was your prediction yesterday?

Work on that.

And you were wrong, LOL.

My question? What warmed the Earth to bring us out of the last ice age? Dinosaur farts? There were no factories or any of the other things science is blaming for global warming. The Earth has always and will continue to go through cycles of hot and cold regardless of what we as inhabitants do.

“Right now nine of the 10 largest cities—Mexico City being the only exception—are coastal cities,” said Bindschadler, an emeritus researcher at NASA Goddard Space Center who collaborated with Anders Levermann at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.“Nearly half of the world’s population, almost 3 billion people, live at or near the coast. We are placing ourselves in harm’s way.”

Bindschadler’s estimates are higher than those released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in an April report.

His study doesn’t incorporate data from two studies published in May that found the West Antarctic ice sheet is headed to an irreversible meltdown and collapse due to global warming driven by greenhouse gas emissions.

Bindschadler’s team found that Antarctica’s ice melt will contribute seven to 28 centimeters in additional sea level rise by the end of the century. That would boost the IPCC assessment of total global sea level rise to as much as 111 centimeters, said Bindschadler.
