    I tend to believe in Global Warming. I don't know if it is man made, probably most of it isn't. If you believe that CO2 is the culprit then you would have to believe that man contributes to it in some small degree.

    I have no problem with the world curbing its CO2 emissions. However, unilateral approaches like Obama's cap and trade are injurious only to this country and do little to reduce CO2 emissions. It has to be global reduction of CO2 to be fair and effective. We are nowhere close to having that agreement with China, India and the other developing countries.

    If we continue on our current path and on this road to breaking the bank we will create an economic environment that makes clean technologies much less likely to be developed and deployed.

    Responsible fiscal policy makes for a more prosperous society, which means a cleaner society and far more control over our future.

    That's kind of where I'm at on Global Warming or the better term Climate Change.
    I think it would be arrogant of humans to not think they can/do change environment/climate in some way or another.

    The constant and drastic changes to the Earths climate before man should be ignored.

    Now that man is here a fraction of a degree change over decades should tell us we are destroying the planet. Too bad there had Been no increase in the last sixteen years.

    Global warming sceptics were right. Renamed their socialist take over something new hmmmmm climate change yeah that will work.

    But hey lets let a bunch of. Green libtards rule over us.

    A new cold front will hit south China this week, bringing snow and icy rain.

    Story Highlights
    • Extreme cold exposes lack of heating in south China
    • Travelers have been delayed by fog and frozen runways at airports
    • More than 1,000 ships are stuck in ice on Laizhou Bay in Shandong province

    BEIJING — Ice swimmers were taking their shocking plunges in north China through the thickest ice in years, but most Chinese nationwide are shivering through the coldest weather in nearly three decades.
    Freezing weather has sent temperatures diving to a national average of 25 degrees Fahrenheit since Nov. 20, the lowest average temperature in 28 years, says the China Meteorological Administration.
    In China's frozen northeast, where the city of Harbin hosts a popular snow and ice festival each winter, temperatures over the same period averaged minus-5 degrees, a 43-year low, according to the CMA.
    And a new cold front will hit south China this week, the CMA said, as temperatures in several regions will be several degrees lower than the average of normal years. The CMA said ice had covered 10,500 square miles of the sea surface, the most expansive since 2008 when authorities began to collect ice data, and it said the ice coverage will likely continue to grow.
    One million people in normally temperate south China have been going through unusually cold weather in recent days, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported Tuesday. Thousands of travelers have endured long delays as fog and frozen runways paralyzed airports. Hundreds of irate passengers berated staff at Kunming's airport last week, according to pictures on the Caixin magazine website.
    Some trains have also been halted and several highways temporarily closed due to snow and ice.
    In north China's Inner Mongolia, record-low temperatures and heavy snow have left two people dead and affected 770,000 others, said Xinhua. More than 260,000 people were in need of emergency aid.
    In eastern Shandong province, more than 1,000 ships are stuck because of thick sea ice on Laizhou Bay. The government fretted over damage to late-season crops such as winter wheat. Prices for vegetable have jumped 55% in the past 10 weeks, reported the People's Daily newspaper.
    The super-low temperatures are rare but will continue for some time, said Zhang Lansheng, 85, one of China's earliest environment and climate experts. Compared to early 2008, when south China suffered a snow and ice "disaster" that caused widespread power outages and affected more than 100 million people, China now boasts more experience and disaster readiness, he said.
    "But we need to increase the accuracy of weather forecasts, and different levels of government should improve emergency facilities and organize people to boost their ability to cope with disasters."
    The weather has also exposed a decades-old debate about the lack of heating in south China. A line drawn in the 1950s split China into a northern half that built and still enjoys heavily subsidized public heating, and a southern half that shivers through winter without a public heating network and must make do with private, often less effective, heating devices.
    While some officials and energy experts suggest heating the south could endanger China's energy supply, Zhang hopes southern cities with enough financial resources can build heating networks with clean energy.
    "I don't think the old way to divide the heating areas is good. But it's hard to change it now, so I don't think the south will be the same as the north anytime soon."
    The nation's great size means tourists can always enjoy warm days in destinations such as Hainan Island, China's "Hawaii." But some Chinese are determined to make the most of the deep chill.
    At the Harbin ice festival, 16 Chinese and foreign couples braved the cold for a mass wedding celebration on Sunday.
    China has no history of winter sports, but middle-class Chinese are increasingly heading to suburban ski resorts that have mushroomed in north China in recent years where ice fishermen still haul their thrashing prey up through holes sawed through thick ice.
    The seven-leg China Tour de Ski, a cross-country ski race that started in frozen Jilin in China's northeast, continued as scheduled. It finishes Friday in frigid Xinjiang, on China's border with Kazakhstan, where temperatures have hit 40 below this winter.
    India is also experiencing record cold, and forecasts in Israel call for 2 inches of snow, a rare occurrence. The Weather Underground reports that the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, where New Delhi is located, has seen record cold temperatures. Temperatures in New Delhi fell to a low of 35.4 degrees on Jan. 6 and the high temperature on Jan. 2 was 49.6, the coldest daily maximum in 44 years.
    Locations in Haryana State reported a low temperature of 26.7 degrees, an all-time record cold temperature.

    Don't worry. After 30 more years of global cooling the left will invent warming again.

    Every problem, real or imagined, always has the same fix for Liberals....more taxes, more government, more regulation, more bureaucracy, less personal freedom.... every single time. All they have to do is keep dreaming up new problems to apply their preordained "fix" to. The actual results of this fix is ****ing irrelevant to them, what matters is that the intent of the fix, "saving the world", makes them feeeeeeeeeeeeeel good.

    Here is the take down of your rag article, not that I expect anyone to read it, since their opinions are so easily validated by a tabloid.


    http://www.theguardian.com/environme...-ice-delusions

    Basically a poor understanding of statistics and some lying.

    To utterly reject global warming is to reject science. Food for thought.
    How can it be science when they can't prove anything except recent warming trends?

    Most experts believe that warming of less than 2 degrees Celsius from preindustrial levels will result in no net economic and ecological damage. Therefore, the new report is effectively saying (based on the middle of the range of the IPCC's emissions scenarios) that there is a better than 50-50 chance that by 2083, the benefits of climate change will still outweigh the harm.

    Warming of up to 1.2 degrees Celsius over the next 70 years (0.8 degrees have already occurred), most of which is predicted to happen in cold areas in winter and at night, would extend the range of farming further north, improve crop yields, slightly increase rainfall (especially in arid areas), enhance forest growth and cut winter deaths (which far exceed summer deaths in most places). Increased carbon dioxide levels also have caused and will continue to cause an increase in the growth rates of crops and the greening of the Earth—because plants grow faster and need less water when carbon dioxide concentrations are higher.

    Up to two degrees of warming, these benefits will generally outweigh the harmful effects, such as more extreme weather or rising sea levels, which even the IPCC concedes will be only about 1 to 3 feet during this period.

    Yet these latest IPCC estimates of climate sensitivity may still be too high. They don't adequately reflect the latest rash of published papers estimating "equilibrium climate sensitivity" and "transient climate response" on the basis of observations, most of which are pointing to an even milder warming. This was already apparent last year with two papers—by scientists at the University of Illinois and Oslo University in Norway—finding a lower ECS than assumed by the models. Since then, three new papers conclude that ECS is well below the range assumed in the models. The most significant of these, published in Nature Geoscience by a team including 14 lead authors of the forthcoming IPCC scientific report, concluded that "the most likely value of equilibrium climate sensitivity based on the energy budget of the most recent decade is 2.0 degrees Celsius."

    To be fair...the loss or growth of ice in a one year period doesn't mean shit....

    The earth is warming....and has been for a significant period of time....it will continue to warm another degree or two without any human influence...a half million years of ice core samples prove that point....

    Again, cubs 'article' was only for one year showing arctic ice 'recovery' I am not making any statement other than that to your comment of '35 years?' And he got almost fellated by the retards in here.

    If you want to discuss the merits of anthropogenic global warming, I still believe that a tremendous majority of scientists believe that humans have had an impact on the climate. Most articles I have read do not indicate a substantial shift in that arena.

    The point of the article wasn't so much that there's more ice--the point was that there's far more ice than we were told there would be. It was supposed to be gone by some accounts--that clearly isn't the case.

    The Viking's return to their farms in Greenland and Britain's resurgence as a major wine exporter will probably get my attention. A Warmist has not explained the Medieval Warming to me yet.
