My God, if 10% of the greatest scientific minds in the world aren't sure, I don't feel so bad not being sure myself.
Tell me, if you had a 10% chance of not breaking your leg if you jumped off your roof, would you do it?
Would you pay more attention to the 10% who told you it would be fine or the 90% who said don't do it?edit on 4/1/2014 by Phage because: (no reason given)

You seem to be experiencing what we up the coast usually get this time of year .I think it has something to do with the polar vortex being quite active this year ..It seems to drive the cold further south then normal ...peace

Back in the day when the earth was flat there was a consensus .....As for science I find some of it interesting and helpful but science that works on better ways to destroy life I am not fond of ...peace
And as five zones th' aetherial regions bind,
Five, correspondent, are to Earth assign'd:
The sun with rays, directly darting down,
Fires all beneath, and fries the middle zone:
The two beneath the distant poles, complain
Of endless winter, and perpetual rain.
Betwixt th' extreams, two happier climates hold
The temper that partakes of hot, and cold.
The fields of liquid air, inclosing all,
Surround the compass of this earthly ball
Why are people still not believing this?
Most of the scientists are in agreement and the data is all out there in the internet for all to see and read. There are some amazing articles that summarize all of this will infographics and charts and links and sources to all of the Data.
Again, it's like trying to persuade "Answers in Genesis" that evolution is real and that the earth is older than 6000 years. No matter the proof or evidence you still will not believe.
C'mon! Explain the ice ages away.
Double dog dare you!
Are conservatives ever right?
They were wrong about slavery, wrong about women’s suffrage, wrong about segregation, wrong about gay rights. They were wrong about trickle down economics – it’s never worked and never will, as the ballooning wealth gap proves once again. They were wrong about Iraq (where are those WMD’s, anyway?) and wrong about Vietnam before it. They’re even wrong about evolution (in which only 43% of Republicans believe).
But no error, no misguided application of ideology, no deception is more damaging than the web of lies that conservatives have spun about climate change.

Gee you would think with that warm air mixed in it, it wouldn't have been so cold but that is the talking point hey .Its colder because it's warmer lol too funny ...peaceedit on 1-4-2014 by the2ofusr1 because: (no reason given)
The preceding Ice Ages were not the result of man but were more likely due to slight changes in the earth's obliquity, wobble, and eccentricity in its path around the Sun along with instances where land masses developed in areas where the old conveyor belt existed (shutdown).
Meanwhile, another study found that of the 141 books denying climate change – none of which were scientifically peer reviewed – 130 of them were written by conservative think tanks funded by Big Oil, or by authors affiliated with them.
In other words, the “debate” about climate change isn’t among scientists. It’s between scientists and industry lackeys who are paid to lie.

the cold air we’re experiencing is because arctic air has been displaced from the Arctic. In New York, we’re shivering. In Alaska, they’re (relatively) burning up, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
