I do not know about you but I am putting all my money in ICE FUTURES, especially if I were to live near the Arctic and I was a Polar Bear.

Ron B.: Are you aware that Greenland, though now covered with ice, was once arable and green, and was used to grow crops (around 1,000 years ago)? That's how it got its name. Ice cores drilled in the North Pole have revealed remains of tropical plants beneath the ice. Climate cycles far more extreme than those now predicted have occurred many times throughout earth's history, going back for millions of years, long before humans existed, and certainly before modern civilization. What disturbs me about the "warmists" is their seemingly lack of any perspective on earth's climate history. It's as though they believe earth's history only began when humans appeared.

why is it so damn hard for teabaggers to accept that climate change and global warming is real?

And some other areas have had record snow and cold. What many people don't realize is that there will be more wild weather and extremes in temperatures as climate change progresses. This is due to there being more moisture and energy available in the atmosphere to drive these extremes. Eventually, if global warming isn't reversed, higher overall temperatures will gradually overcome the colder weather and hotter conditions will prevail indefinitely.

I know that where I live we only had a few days with somw this winter, and then just a dusting. On average years we have it from October to at least March, and at least a few inches deep.

I am going to wait until next year to see if it is warm before I start blaming global warning on this one. It is my observation that we get a heavier snowfall/harsher winter every 3 - 4 years, depending on the hurricanes effect other areas.Next year is when we are due for a harsh winter.

Sounds like global warming to me, no matter how much the Republicans try to convince folks that it doesn't exist.

The human race has shown itself to be extremely adaptable and I think it will make it through this episode of global warming - the downside is that billions will die before we adapt because the world wouldn't listen to the warnings. In reading history, it seems we seldom do.

Good for NY. They see what happened in other states that bowed to big energy lies.
