...and 2007 seems to be following suit. If this isn't enough to convince the deniars of global warming, I dont know what will. I wonder how big of an effect this will have on hurricane season? Here in Va. my azaleas started blooming.

2006 was the warmest year for the UK and Netherlands as well.
I think 2005 still hold the record for the warmest year globally though.

I live in Grand Rapids, MI.

It has been the warmest winter beginning I have seen, or has my girlfriend seen in years, and she has lived in Michigan all her life. For the past 28+ days since the first snow of the season, it has warmed up to early fall/late summer temperatures. I don't know if it has anything to do with the solar flares/storms that have been flaring up (no pun intended), causing a warming trend, but I do know that there are crops in the fields by my house starting to grow again, and if it doesn't start freezing hard, someone is going to lose alot of money on this.

Normally around this time of year, there is already 6-12" of snow on the ground, it's cold as b*lls outside, and the wind is unbearable for more than 30 seconds of exposed skin.

I am unsure whether global warming would have alot to do with this, there are so many factors that could attribute to a warmer winter. We expend so much and waste so much, that greed and money is now the top goal of 70% of the planet. Used to be keeping warm and trading furs.

If you really want to keep from killing us all, don't drive your cars....but that won't happen will it?

I have 5, I'm sure i'm not helping much either.

We're 9 days into it.

This is not evidence of global warming, sorry to disappoint. Global Warming is process. We don't detect global warming over short term events, like 'a year'. You can have cold and warm anamolies whether or not you are having global warming.

In 1877, there was no snow in NYC during december and january. In the years to follow, there was lots of snow. Did that mean that global warming ended back then?

What happens if 2007 doesn't end up being the warmest year on record? Does that mean that there is global cooling, and global warming wasn't occuring?

2006 was the warmest year for the UK and Netherlands as well.

Central England in 1733 had an average temperature of 10.47 Degrees Celsius. That wasn't exceed until 1949 when it reached 10.62.

In 2002 Central England was 10.60, then it dropped to 10.50, 10.48, and 10.44 in 2005.

Its EXTREMELY important to not look at simple, single, short term events and say that they tell us much either way about global temperature.
