I wonder if, The fact that radiation from Fukushima is still POURING out into the ocean has anything to do with it.

Love DeSmog blog; great source of information.

Very good recent documentary on climate change (length ~ 52 minutes):

So sorry to hear it's happening, but it's probably because many of the previously third-world countries are trying to "move up," which results in their using every higher levels of fossil fuels; doing more and more development; and destroying wider and wider swaths of forests even as we speak.

What's shocking is that people are shocked--unbelievable denial+ignorance,

No surprises here take a walk around coastal areas and see the erosion that's occurring.

All that radiation leaking out into the pacific ocean from Japan can't be helping the environment and the temperatures very much. Such a tragedy for our planet.

No doubt Australia thinks that cranking up their coal exports and flooding the market with dirt-cheap coal is going to bring the temperatures down again, because "coal is a blessing to humanity" isn't it?

The U.S., despite having less than 5% of the world's population, continues to emit about a fifth of the greenhouse gases. Developing countries China, India and Brazil have per capita emissions far lower than the U.S. and many developed nations. What should also not be ignored or forgotten is that the developing countries, with the U.S. in the lead, are responsible for most of the existing greenhouse gases. Developing countries are certainly contributing to the problem, but it is hypocritical to blame developing countries while imposing a double standard.

I have seen no evidence presented to indicate that Fukushima has had even a negligible impact on ocean temperatures. Fukushima is bad enough on its own, but such speculative claims detract from the real causes of climate change.

Sorry, that should have read 'What should not be ignored or forgotten is that developed nations, with the U.S. in the lead....'

Agree with Natasha Salgado.

Stunned? We have been receiving this info regarding climate change/warming for a very long time.....and many humans again simply ignored it (and still do). Look around you....see what is actually happening to this planet.....simple as that. Thanks Cal!
