Global warming? I think not.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I don't think global warming has any effect on my city considering that it's SNOWING! I thought winter was over. We have had rain for a couple days straight now and all of a sudden it started to snow. I think Canada has skipped the whole global warming phase and went straight to the next ice age.

Global warming causes many very strange changes. Just because it has the word warming in it doesn't mean it only gets warmer. There are similar patterns now as there were before each ice age so far. Global Warming might actually put the Earth into it's next ice age.

Lots of scientists have been saying that global warming is really natural and has happened since the earth came about. I don't know personally but I still do my bit by recycling things.

It hasn't started snowing here yet but I'm scared it will. I wish this rain would stop.. it's FREEZING in here!

Global warming has nothing to do with your local weather, and as has been mentioned, weather problems caused by small changes in temperature can cause weird things like snow in May.

Anyway, enjoy the snow!

I am in the same boat as you. Whenever I say what you are saying right now people always come back and say "Global Warming isn't just warming it's making the weather crazy and unpredictable. That's why there is weird weather."
Right...then why are we calling it global WARMING then??? Sometimes I think it's a ploy considering we haven't broken many weather records and the Farmer's Almanac is pretty close usually, and that's HOW OLD?
I don't know, the environment is being hurt by the things we do, I'll admit that. If it were really that big a deal then there should be more enforcements on vehicle polution and arosal sprays should be eliminated. Till then I'm not going to worry myself about something scientists can agree upon.

Scientists do agree on it. And most of them don't call it global warming anymore, but climate change, the greenhouse effect, etc. Effects of only a couple degrees average in the year (which nobody would notice on a day-to-day basis) are enough to cause serious damage.

There are lots of people with billions of dollars riding on the fact that most Americans don't understand and don't want to believe the truth.

Not snowing here, but the sky looks like snow clouds. But then again I wouldn't be surprised because I remember one year having snow in June.

If you haven't seen Al Gore's film, "An Inconvenient Truth," go rent it tonight! Yes, it's a documentary... but it's a lot of fun to watch, it's absolutely flabbergasting, and when it's over, you'll understand just how obvious it really is that the global climate change we're seeing now is not the least bit normal. You'll walk out of the theater wanting to go recycle something quick!

When I saw it, I was ready to call up Al Gore's office and beg for a JOB -- I just wanted so much to help spread the word somehow. It's a brilliant and fascinating film, and very personal in many ways, too. Very emotional at times.

And boy, do you end up wishing you'd had a teacher like him in school!
