    One sided article on this subject again. No mention of the record growth rate of the Anarctic ice cap.

      False statement. The Antartic Ice Cap is shrinking in volume even though the size of the cap has grown. Weird, but there it is.

    I’ll never understand how climate change can turn into a “liberal vs conservative” debate. Last I heard, there’s only one planet for ALL of us…

      Ralph, I agree, and I’ve always thought of myself as somewhat of a “tree hugger”. But science does not prove global warming AT ALL. I could write a whole article on the subject, but since I’m an insurance underwriter and just the SON OF A SCIENTIST, I’m not paid to do that. I say, if you want to stop driving SUVs (I hate ‘em anyway) or do something else to cut emissions, great. But don’t make US pay for it.

        Thanks. I never know which scientist to believe. One says our activity affects the climate and another says it doesn’t. I guess I’ll side with your Daddy and Mommy.

          A good rule of thumb is don’t believe scientists whose livelihood depends on government.
          What if Monsanto scientists said that climate change is real, it is caused by humans, and oh by the way, only Monsanto can solve this problem so everyone must be forced to give Monsanto more power and more money? They would be laughed off the stage for the obvious conflict of interest. So why are scientists in cahoots with government given a pass?

    The important question to ask yourself is, “Do I really trust a gang of self-interested, corrupt, power-hungry politicians and bureaucrats – cut from the same cloth as the buffoons who gave us Cash for Clunkers – to change the climate of the entire planet for the better?”

    I don’t believe in climate change, which only fair as the climate change does not believe in me.

    the earth is flat, the sun revolves aroung the earth, and we all were created in a flash 7,432 1/2 years ago.

    oh, and the moon landing was a hoax done in a movie studio.

    anything else you flat-earthers want to add?

    Saying that climate change does not occur defies logic. Where did the oil we pump out of the ground come from? How about all the glacial erosion that we see everywhere? What happened to the dinosaurs? What about wooly mammoths? Dry seabeds and old lake beds? The climate has been continual changing for about 4.5 billion years!

    Bob & Sam,

    Of course climate change is occuring, and it always has, always will. That is a constant. What isn’t scientific fact is that this change is man-made and can be reversed, controlled or somehow held constant by taxing us to death or making us live in grass huts warmed by nothing but our own body heat and whatever methane we can generate organically! This debate used to be about global “warming” yet is now about climate change in general. How convenient for the puppeteers like Al Gore who are fleecing us for millions while driving this hysteria. There are so many variables that impact our climate in a major way that we will never ever control- the sun, vulcanic eruption, changes in lunar orbits, etc. This whole movement is about power and influence and money. Wake up.

    What are we on now, 333 ro 334 consecutive months with an above average temperature?

    According to whom, the scientists getting the funding?

      No, according to statistics and facts and compared to historical data. You know, information you cannot dispute. But, don’t go sailing for too long, James. You might fall off the planet.

    The average high temperature for the year in Antarctica is about -49 degrees F, while the average low temperature for the continent is about -56 degrees F. Maybe the brilliant “climate change” scientists can ship some of the cold to the Northern hemisphere.
