Can we have some global warming now? PLEASE?

Sam we all have been told time and again that cold, windy, snowy weather is part of global warming. But then every type of weather is "climate change". man made to boot,

SamAdams

I'm fully aware of "climate change." Only in the past, we used to call it "seasons." :-)

Seriously, though, climate change is a proven fact. Over the eons, we've record of hotter than average and cooler than average eras. My only issue with "climate change" as CURRENTLY defined is that humans can have such a dramatic effect that such change becomes abrupt (geologically speaking). Do I LIKE pollution? Of course not! Do I believe, like Al Gore (who talks the talk, but can't be bothered to walk the walk when he can fly on his private jet back to one of his over-lit and probably overheated multi-room mansions) that the sky is falling? Not so much...

Keep the snow down and bring on the cold. 0 degrees equals 1 in more of ice per day, we are due for a fun season on the ice!

I'll bet the mall will have some good sales after this crap is over. Only ones that made lots of money were the grocery stores. People acted like they were going to be snowed in for a month!
