And for you who are pointing fingers at the scientists who supposedly have something to gain from proving Global Warming/Climate Change: Do you really think they have more to gain from proving it than oil/coal companies have to gain from trying to disprove it? And who has more resources to do so?

Good thing this is exactly what will happen with global warming/climate change. Your summers will be hotter and your winters get colder but your overall average for the year will continue to rise.
The added melt off from glaciers will mix with the currents and mess up the way the water flows and goes from cold to warm. This will have a major change to the weather and plunge us into a mini ice age as we see average temps drop.

I would like to point ALL acolytes to this thread, it is very relevant to the statement made by this comment-

Star for you blueorder!
If you think the cold sucks you are definitaly in the wrong state. Here in Jacksonville, Florida it is 32 and on the weather they are telling parents how to dress their kids adequately and what to do when it reaches 32. I have not seen kids leaving their house to play and very few people go jogging unless they are dressed like it is Fargo. People start wearing Alaska sweaters at 50! I personally love the cold as long as my skin is not exposed(except face and ears) I can tolerate the cold very well. The other night I walked outside and it was 19 and I wore a pair of jeans, socks and shoes, a t-shirt, and a light sweater and I was walking around and was quite warm, I even considered taking off the sweater. I have to say this is the coldest I have every felt in my life being born and raised here but can't wait to get out of 'God's waiting room' because of the weather and that in the local newspaper there is literally only 4 or 5 jobs in a city of 810,000 people!

Whether Global Warming exists or not does not matter, what does matter is if we should do something about it now just in case it DOES exist.
Suppose someone has a low blood pressure, should we give them a heart transplant. Suppose the baby has a fever, should we put him in a blanket just in case we are wrong. He might get cold. Right now, its a record breaking cold snap. Temperatures have been dropping for a while. How long do they have to drop before you realize heat is NOT a problem? We do have SOLAR heating and cooling, but we can't really control it. I would vote for a sunspot storm this week, but we can't "cloud seed" one. Water Vapor is the largest greenhouse gas, not CO2. CO2 increase preceeded global warming by hundreds of years. Check that out a the NOAA website. The facts don't support global warming.
On Christmas Day, December 25th, the temperature at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole site soared to an all-time record high of 9.9°F (-12.3°C) eclipsing the former record of 7.5°F (-13.6°C) set on December 27, 1978. The low temperature on December 25th was a mild (relatively!) 4°F (-15.5°C). Records at the site began in January 1957. Its elevation is 9,301 feet (2,835 meters).
