The ice at the North and South poles are melting at an unprecedented rate. The ocean currents are getting all wonky and changing the weather patterns. Storms are getting much more severe and deadly. ex OKC.
NASA thinks that's a result of cooling?
Hurricane season this year is going to be Biblical. I'm glad I live in the Rockies!!!
And yet south pole ice is at its highest amount its ever been, report in climate depot blog.

I have been on this Earth for almost 66 years and this "anthropogenic global warming" issue is absolutely the dumbest thing I have ever seen. That so many people are swallowing that stupidity hook line and sinker is just incomprehensible.
Build a sphere (you know a big round ball for those recently graduated) 800 meters in diameter and you can put every living human being on Earth in it. We represent less than 1 part per billion of the atmosphere out to 5 miles. Now try to convince me that we are changing the climate.
The climate IS CHANGING it has changed over time since the Earth existed and it is going to keep changing but man's existence on Earth has absolutely zip to do with it.
So you idiots that have swallowed Al Gore's Kool Aid can happily pay your carbon taxes and continue getting fleeced by him and his following of mindless minions.
We are headed for the next ice age. The temperature of the Earth is going down. Those numbskulls are spraying stuff in the atmosphere to block the Sun. Like the Russian climatologist said a few years ago.."Buy blankets!"

Uhh so the bit in the article that states that the heat produced by the earth is far far more than the heat that is produced by the sun when it hits the thermosphere, was ignored.
Seeing as the upper atmosphere helps reflect the suns heat (as we know it to do) as well as trapping heat already contained in the atmosphere, which one do you think would be impacted on, by more co2?
Venus has a lot of co2. Should be pretty chilly there. If it weren't for all the co2.
nah, it's all a hoax, silly nasas. put their foots in it.. even if the article is over a year old and doesn't imply any such thing.
Plus, if the globe is getting warmer then why is it so cold ? answer that smart guys. and magnets. and monkeys. science. what a bunch of loonies, rite!!!
Mlynczak is the associate principal investigator for the SABER instrument onboard NASA’s TIMED satellite. SABER monitors infrared emissions from Earth’s upper atmosphere, in particular from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances that play a key role in the energy balance of air hundreds of km above our planet’s surface.
“Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats,” explains James Russell of Hampton University, SABER’s principal investigator. “When the upper atmosphere (or ‘thermosphere’) heats up, these molecules try as hard as they can to shed that heat back into space.”
Most of the light energy from the sun is emitted in wavelengths shorter than 4,000 nanometers (.000004 meters). The heat energy released from the earth, however, is released in wavelengths longer than 4,000 nanometers. Carbon dioxide doesn't absorb the energy from the sun, but it does absorb some of the heat energy released from the earth. When a molecule of carbon dioxide absorbs heat energy, it goes into an excited unstable state. It can become stable again by releasing the energy it absorbed. Some of the released energy will go back to the earth and some will go out into space.
