Anyone who looks outside or watches the news can tell that the climate is changing. It's slightly obvious that it is when the polar ice caps which have been there 10,000 years are suddenly meting and breaking away. Also, where I live, this winter and last winter have been the two mildest winters this area has had in recent history. I don't think it's as bad as some people are making it sound, however. Simply put, we are going to survive. Any drastic changes in climate and temperature that might have even the remote possibility or affecting our survivability as a species on Earth realistically isn't going to happen within our lifetime, or our kid's lifetimes, or their kid's lifetimes etc. Also, who is to say that Earth doesn't change it's climates naturally throughout time in some sort of a cycle?

Congratz on your isolated mildness. A multi-state blizzard producing about a foot of snow over the midwest, and another blizzard producing more in the northeast a few days later say otherwise.

If I'm reading that right that storm passed right over me, I got enough wind and rain to knock out power for about 2 hours.  And thats not exactly hard to do where I live, and that storm was the worst yet but was extremely mild for what I'm used to.  Chicago is in its second extremely mild winter in a row after several really bad ones.

@Moe Exactly what I'm saying. I live in Ohio and we have only gotten bout 2 - 3 inches of snow so far this year in the area I live, and last year was one of the driest years on record for both snow and rain.

The weather everywhere has been getting quite severe lately. It's probably due to humans screwing with the chemical composistion of the atmosphere: Adding waaaay more carbon from all the coal burning, etc.
Of course, throughout history, temperatures have fluctuated...regularly. This recent one bypasses all others except for maybe the Ice Age.
So yeah, I definitely believe in Global Warming being caused by irresponsible, ignorant, overeducated cubicle mice that dont know how to survive without an Iphone or McDonalds or *grumble grumble*

Goin with what Moe said..not all of the midwest was hit. Some of Missouri had little to no snow (then again..that state is known for its insanely random weather)

Whatever the heck is going on, I'm going to get mighty pissed if my island gets flooded in a few decades.

Guys, the Pastafarians have conclusive and undeniable evidence that there is a direct correlation between climate change and fluctuations in the levels of piracy on the high seas:

As I said already in another thread.. no statistician in his/her right mind would suggest a real correlation in this graph, what with the extremely non-linear evolution of pirate numbers... (Yes, I know you were not being serious, or at least I hope so. Still.)

Also, who is to say that Earth doesn't change it's climates naturally throughout time in some sort of a cycle?

It does, and I realize more and more that very few people are aware of that.

It's probably due to humans screwing with the chemical composistion of the atmosphere

CHEMTRAILS!! Oh wait no...

Whatever the heck is going on, I'm going to get mighty pissed if my island gets flooded in a few decades.

Is there a serious risk? How much meter above sealevel are you?
