CO2 emissions still dominate the total radiative forcing of climate change, leading methane CH4, nitrous oxide NO2 and combined CFC release into Earth's upper atmosphere.

Including an alarming report of an incredible 29% increase since 1990.

I think that this "snow i cane" is a preview of more "epic" coming attractions in weather patterns.
Thanks Mindy!!

Thanks Pink! Noted! We've been having wind gust up to 98 mph this morning and the past couple of days here. We get storms on average of about a half dozen a year with wind speeds in the 60's up to the 90's mph range.

Worst in 40 years perhaps, but certainly not the worst in history by any means.
Most snow in one day in Alaska? Dec 29, 1955 62"
Most snow in one day US? Dec 13, 1914, Colorado 63"
Worst year for blizzards in the US? 2009? Nope. 1888.
Deadlist hurricane?Katrina? Not hardly. Sept 8, 1900 Galveston Tx. 10,000 to 12,000 people killed - 15 times more than Katrina.
Climate change is real, but get some perspective.

I agree with Morris G, we should keep things in perspective, having said that I have noted changes in our climate during my lfetime. Human beings are pretty resiliant and we will probably be able to cope with quite a few of the changes that we will face, native animals may not fare so well on the other hand, the same will apply to native crops and plants.

Hi PinkMindy: Thanks so much for this. FYI, and all our readers' info., ,Here in Colorado Springs, at a party for Sen. Michael Bennet in '10, I accidently overheard a couple of govt. operatives (one, a couple of minutes earlier, had given me a bit of hell for repeatedly calling govt. operatives 'spooks' ), discussing amazing things re. weather control satellites. Suprised and shaken by what I'd heard, I, this past summer, asked an old friend, a retired rear admiral, about these weather control satellites. He confirmed their existence, but said he did not know how well they worked.

Is it not possible that once again, we the sheeple have been informed re. the truth of what's going on in this, the U.S. of (greed and power) A.(ddiction)? Gee, just think of all the mass fortunes that could be raked in by the greedy 1% by their total or sizeable control of weather, i.e., the recent 'non-hurricane' that hit the east coast. This certainly erits investigation, but there's no hope whatsoever for any kind of real McCoy investigating being done by hardly any pols today in the OhBombAh admin., the broken Congress, etc. And, when truthtellers like Manning let the truth out, looks what happens.

Time to...UNDO THE COUP!

We are seeing lots of signs throughout the world of climate change. We have much more moisture/CO2 in our atmosphere. 390 ppm and the carbon in our atmosphere is still rising.
Wealthy anti environmental interests would like us to ignore climate change. Ignoring a problem won't make it cease.

It is just plain stupid to ask why any more. We must except responsibility for the horrid situation we have left our children. Can anything be done about it now with it spiraling out of control, and that's the word we never were in control yet we keep trying to be.

This video really shows that we are losing control of what we have caused. This is what our children will have to face more and more often.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am scared stiff. I keep going back to the Mayan's...could they be right with their calendar ending in 2012? What have we done to our planet?

Well, here in MA I did not put on my flannel sheets until almost nov.(I used to put them on around Oct. 1?, I have not turned the heat on yet although others have, and today I was had the window open. good for walking and my wallet and I like not using more oil but also-what's wrong with this picture? I do not look forward to bundling up but this is weird not to mention the fact that we had out late fall nor'easter (usually rain but snow this year) in late October. It down't usually happen 'til the third or fourth week in Nov.
Of course there is no climate change really is there?
