    The fact that the skies dump snow on us in midsummer.

    Eh, midsummer is pulling strings, I mean.. 20th of March is midspring (Vårjevndøgn). You'll have to wait another month 'till midsummer, 21st of July. Though there was a year we got snow in June or July, in the south that is.. obviously you never know what happens in the north. In the end it just shows that weather indeed fluctuates, and that looking at a few select years and comparing them brings you nowhere nearer proof of Global Warming caused by humans or not.

    Eh, I don't know the validity of Global warming but I often see it used as a scape goat for things like gas companies and combustion fuels in general - it's easy for them to say Global warming is just a theory and make everyone forget about all the other crap caused by CO2 emissions like acid rain and air pollution.

    I just know its FACKING HOT, here in the middle of Spring, much hotter then it should be around this time of the year

    Hopefully all that volcanic ash that darkened the skies in Europe for a while gave them a nice break from the damn heat caused by it.

    Wait, what? Heat and cold both 'caused by a cloud? Oh, and we're not experiencing any bloody heat, we're experiencing cold weather.

    You had thirty degrees Celsius in the shade, in Finland? I think the maximum so far in Norway, this year, is 25 degrees Celsius, but that didn't last.

    Quite frankly you're a fucking idiot to believe it. This SPRING it snowed in TEXAS. Also, scientists from the United Kingdom reported that the polar ice caps have grown larger this year.

    It's just as hot as it usually is during the summer and the winter is just as cold. If anything, it's global cooling. But it isn't. There are no signs of it, just a bunch of morons claiming it's real with no real proof except pollution. It's a publicity stunt and a hoax. Nothing is going wrong drastically (as far as weather goes) and life goes on...

    Global warming is a science scam. While global warming is in fact a real issue, it's not manmade. It's a solar event. Of course, people argue that carbon emissions amplify it, but from everything I've seen, that's wrong.

    Every regular scientist (That includes professors. I use the term loosely.) I've ever talked to about it says it's a scam. They also say they can't speak outwardly against it because they get fired. So no one says anything. It's so freaking awkward to talk about it, for them.

    "Going green" is a religion now. It's now a moral issue. I'm not one to throw conspiracy theories out there, but if it looks like crap and smells like crap, it's probably crap.

    Than again, I'm no scientist, so don't take my word for it.

    Actually, around 2000 years ago, the ice melted faster and more then it does today, and it survived.

    Not to mention the medieval warm period.

    It's a marketing scam.

    The carbon emissions are only a small part of the global warming. Methane and tons of other gases are a lot worse. Those emissions have amplified the global warming and made it come sooner than it should. And yes, this has happened before, the earth gets hotter and the atmosphere is filled with dust and then it gets really cold and stuff freezes, then after many years the skies clear and the dust falls down.

    Cows are a huge source of methane gas - either we call cow genocide or we force them to go green or we will all die.


    Though global warming may not be the main problem, still you want to control things like carbon emissions and such as they create some pretty nasty pollution which becomes a pain now, and not possibly in the future.
