    Warming trends all continue.

    "A new massive federal study says the world in 2012 sweltered with continued signs of climate change. Rising sea levels, snow melt, heat buildup in the oceans, and melting Arctic sea ice and Greenland ice sheets, all broke or nearly broke records, but temperatures only sneaked into the top 10.

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Tuesday issued a peer-reviewed 260-page report, which agency chief Kathryn Sullivan calls its annual "checking on the pulse of the planet." The report, written by 384 scientists around the world, compiles data already released, but it puts them in context of what's been happening to Earth over decades.

    "It's critically important to compile a big picture," National Climatic Data Center director Tom Karl says. "The signs that we see are of a warming world."

    Sullivan says what is noticeable "are remarkable changes in key climate indicators," mentioning dramatic spikes in ocean heat content, a record melt of Arctic sea ice in the summer, and whopping temporary melts of ice in most of Greenland last year. The data also shows a record-high sea level.

    The most noticeable and startling changes seen were in the Arctic, says report co-editor Deke Arndt, climate monitoring chief at the data center. Breaking records in the Arctic is so common that it is becoming the new normal, says study co-author Jackie Richter-Menge of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers' Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, N.H.....

    The study is being published in a special edition of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society."​

    the earth has been warming and cooling for millions of years---not much that "man" can do about it.

    Where in the 200 plus page report does it say that driving cars is to blame.

    Earth warms and cools, NO ONE doubts that. Where's the conclusive proof of man's involvement?

    There is none... the UN wants to make it's brand self sustaining (money to dictate more world wide regulations) and taxing the American businesses is their only shot at this financial windfall that will make them cash solvent, without the need for nations to donate monies as a whole for the UN's existence.

    OK, times up and you all got it wrong. It's called science. Hard one, I know.

    The very spot you posted this from was once under water. That was well before man began pumping 'greenhouse gasses' into the atmosphere.

    Phlogiston was science once upon a time too, but that was wrong. Besides that, where is the proof that mankind is changing it?

    PT Barnum was so right. There's a sucker born every minute.

    Gullible dumbasses abound and the Climate Change moron/believers are living proof.

    For the love, everybody knows that GW is bad science. So I guess when the Dino's all died out over 2million years ago that was man's fault as well. The ice age, oh yeah, our fault too. Even Al-jazeera Gore has bailed on the GW BS. He made MILLIONS off of bogus scientific readings and all the liberals in the world. You guys have been DUPED, just admit it and move on with your lives.

    But ours came with an additional side degree--common sense. We opted to forego on the gullibility option for something more useful and prudent.:grin:

    I am not going to educate you on earth science 101. Or rocks for jocks or whatever you want to call the study of the earth.

    I'll give you a hint though. Ice melts and becomes.....?

    As long as the "scientists" and NOAA get their funding from the federal govt that will only accept "studies" that support what they want, it's just propaganda. If a "scientist" reports data that doesn't fit, so long grants. You'd probably lose your job as well. That's liberalism.

    And what is the evidence that "man" cannot do much about it?

    Maybe we should ask the scientologists what they think. It combines the best of both worlds.
