Forget the Olympics. Want to watch records being broken? Turn on the weather report.
Everywhere you look, Mother Nature is grumpy. Even skeptics are starting to come around. While no hurricane or heat wave is direct proof of warming, the worldwide pattern of record-breaking weather extremes most certainly is.
Accepting climate change as fact isnt an inconsequential choice. Extremes in heat and cold are buckling highways, railroads and runways. Floods routinely overwhelm drains and streams. Sea levels could rise a foot by 2050, threatening coastlines worldwide. Adapting our infrastructure to new weather realities requires a committed population.
Retrofits will take generations. The cost is incalculable. Imagine the cost of ignoring it.
Climate ignorance is a self-inflicted wound. Citizens can no longer sit on the sidelines and pretend its a political position.
If the people who control the decisions and the purse strings continue to deny climate change, whether for politics or ignorance, a lot of folks will be left under water.

What idiots! It’s called WEATHER. Hello, it’s changed every day for my entire 65 years now. Maybe these clowns should hook up with the good old earth island institute or sky island alliance. Insufferable fools. Maybe they might want to move their operations to a little higher ground before it’s too late.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
The ability of journalists to display their scientific ignorance never fails to amaze.
So......we’ve heard about this disastrous sea rising for 2 decades. Yet it never rises. If things were so bad,would we not have some evidence?
Nobody’s denying climate change. Its the idea that it’s man-made is what we have a problem with. Fools.
sitting in my kitchen at the moment
i won’t deny it, pretty nice . got the door open to the yard, dog sleeping in the doorway. bout 68 degrees, clear sky.
denial, when you want the very best.
Editorial Board - a group of ultra liberals who meet on a regular basis to construct big, bigger and biggest lies in the hope that reality can be made meaningless.
Bridges and roads can be designed to “work” in any temperature environment.
Houses can be moved further inshore or put on stilts.
Naked natives of islands inches above sea level can be relocated.
Man can live with climate change.
Man cannot materially change earth’s atmosphere or solar activity. Science is no where near up to those tasks.
Adherents to MMGW are technologically ignorant and delusional.
Were DOOMED Yawn!
Two years ago when we were gripped by the worst winter in decades the climatists all screamed “Weather is not Climate!”. In 1970 they screamed “The ocean will be dead in 10 years”. I call BS.
Lest we forget these same insightful humanists guaranteed an ice age by the 1970's.
So now it’s climate ignorance. I keep asking to no avail: where are the mathematical proof statements? If asking equates to ignorance then we apparently have a dilemma with no solution.
Whenever the alarmists open their mouths, demand that they describe under what conditions Man Made Global Warming is *not* happening.
And do not let them get away with circular arguments, like “MMGW isn’t happening when it isn’t happening”, or “MMGW isn’t happening when there is global cooling.”
The reason that a “negative case” for MMGW must be demanded of them is because they are saying, in effect, that *everything* proves MMGW. Hot, cold, storm, clouds, El Nino, La Nina, melting icecaps, freezing icecaps, teen girls wearing revealing clothing and too much makeup, you name it.
Green is the new Red.
The article apparently can't even get the Beserkley professor's name right.
You know what is scary about this?:
Its our national climate illiteracy, reinforced by a well-funded misinformation campaign, that kept the population on the fence despite decades of science. Even today, too many students are taught by schools that have been cowed into thinking its democratic to teach the debate instead of teaching the facts.
You vill tink the way ve say and you vill LIKE it. Ve pick the facts!
OMG!! The weather is changing? I need the govt. to protect me and change it. They need to legislate more sunspots. Maybe a coordinated jumping program can change the planet’s rotation and fix it.
