@Andrew155:
Funnily enough, we don't look at BBC articles or op-eds to determine science. We look at SCIENCE to do that. Finding one person out of a thousand who happened to be wrong does not overturn a consensus.

@Andrew155:
Why can't we? We're well aware of natural and man-made cycles. The thing is, we don't know of any natural cycle that can account for the current warming.

@MelCervini
What???

You do realize a few inches isn't enough to radically change our seasons, right? The earth changes its distance to the sun by more than a million miles from season to season.

Also, if you do want to change a climate, you CAN change the content of the atmosphere. That changes how it interacts with the sun - and more CO2 causes more heat to be retained.

Also, we are not 'cooling'. This is a lie perpetuated by the Daily Mail and others. Googling this will show you that we are still warming, and that we are not cooling.

@Squirlz4Sale has it right.

Squirz - with all due respect, I hope you realize why some people with a more long-term vision of the Climate don't accept data points just from 1980 onward. And the thing is - reliable records don't go back so far on this. That's the problem.

The Economist was among the big Global Warming pushers, but even they have been changing their tune. And more.

You see, they are hedging. They realize that the models are all FAILING. The models on which all the science was based on are failing. They have not stacked up. And if you dare to question the validity of the science based on models are are proven to be inaccurate, you are treated like a Holocaust denier.

Turns out the Climate is much more complex than you can imagine.

I encourage you all to look at this BBC article.

If you really want a good laugh.

imho its not global warming... at best it can be called climate change because the climate is changing mainly due to the wobbling on our axis.. i.e. we shifted 6-8 inches on our axis as a result of the Japanese earthquake and that is MORE than significant enough to alter our weather patterns. Tell chicken little to go home, the sky isn't falling... its been doing this for a very very long time.

~facepaw~ The following graphic explains the distortions of this article well. The key term here is "reversion to the mean"; 2012 was a record low for arctic ice. It's not surprising that an unusual amount of new ice would form in the wake of a record low.
