So on May 1st, We were two degrees below breaking the highest recorded temperature for that day in history.

Yesterday we broke the record for the coldest May 2nd in recorded history.


Today, May 3rd, I just woke up to snow....

Global Warming?

Wow.

Personally I'm beginning to think I live in LA with all the haze. I really wish Georgia would stop burning...

And someone needs to do a rain-dance down here!

Weather here is fine.

And it would have nothing to do with global warming.

up and downs here

global warming? hell no

global climate change more likely. it changes to medium temp. being a lot more hot, but in some places the weather is just going crazy D

I think we don't have nearly enough info to say global warming is doing anything...

It's been from 40 - 75 every day here, and now it's 95 degrees. I hate living in Texas...

Typical Texas weather is going on here. Starts out at a cool 70 in the morning and by 2pm we are in the high 80's. By the end of this month the weather will be in the mid-80's in the morning and high 90's in the afternoon. I hate this weather. It is like this from late May until Early November every year.

This sounds like typical Kansas weather. Except it changes during the day like that. Last November I remember a day where it was 70 when I woke up and snowing by 5 o'clock. The month of April here started at 80+, was snowing 3-4 inches on the 11th and back up to 80s at the end.

We have more than enough data to suggest that Global Climate Change / Warming is real. Here are a couple of bullets points and a couple of other comments...

according to NOAA, 2005 had
[list3797a6e06f][li3797a6e06f]Warmest average global temperature on record
[li3797a6e06f]Lowest Northern Hemisphere sea ice extent on record
[li3797a6e06f]Highest number of named storms and hurricanes in Atlantic on record
[li3797a6e06f]Northwest U.S. snowpack less than 50% of normal[/listu3797a6e06f]
Even more to the point, global temperature has risen 0.6C (1.1F) since 1900, and the rate of increase has tripled over the past 30 years. But, it's easy to dismiss the data as just illustrative of the past 100 years, as a cyclical event, but if you look at the data there's a distinct upward trend since the industrial revolution. I don't have the data here, but I'll grab the charts for the past few hundred years that show an increase in global CO2, temperature and "greenhouse gas" tomorrow if anyone's interested. Furthermore, it's hard to dismiss Science's thorough review of the record[=http//www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/306/5702/1686] thorough review of the record which shows all of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, all major scientific bodies in the United States, and 928 refereed articles either agree, or do not refute global climate change caused by humans.

Furthermore, even places like junkscience.com include charts on their website like this one that show the effects of global warming

Finally, that the hole in the ozone is smaller, or not of concern can be statistically attributed to late 1980's ban of CFCs.

people just don't want to take responsibility, and i guess that's ok.

it is hard to wake up each day and realize that the earth is dying slowly, because of us. but nevertheless, climate change is happening. ignoring it isn't going to solve the issue

Did we cause the warming of Mars as well? It's temp is moving up the scale at about the same rate.

I sent my daughter off to school this morning in a short sleeved t-shirt and jeans and covered in sunblock...by the time I went to pick her up, I had to put on a fleece jacket and take my umbrella! This time of year is always so weird. You never know what to expect from day to day...it's always a big topic of conversation. wink

Absolutely! Here in Denver, you can burn pretty easily, even if you're only outside for recess a couple of times. 8)
