    I live in an area (SouthCenctral Alaska) that is glaciated more than most of the earth. I fly airplanes and am unable to believe that all of this ice I see added to the earths waters, along with Greenland's ice, Iceland's ice, and Antarctica's ice, Russia and Canada's ice........ could raise waters even inches, yet the global warming advocates state we should fear 20 feet of rise worldwide. Look at a Globe, look at the ice, THINK! Their postulations DO NOT Make SENSE.

    Speaking of Iceland and Greenland......in the 1300's, when all those beautiful castles and cathedrals were constructed in Europe......the climate was considerably warmer than today.....and there were foodstuff-producing colonies on some of the North Sea islands, including Iceland. The prosperity of Eurpoean individuals as a result of this warmer climate allowed the construction and development of the region.

    Again, it was WARMER then than now.

    Also, remember those e-mails from "climate change" scientists that were leaked a few years back???? The ones where they were discussing how far to go when embellishing the data????? They are willing to lie to make you believe their "science". I hate a LIAR!

    Yikes....this is a rant from me.

    I could say aLOT more!
    Three to six feet is the prediction, and it's not just from ice melting, it's also from the ocean waters expanding as they get warmer.

    There are many temperature proxies like tree rings and ice cores and thousands of thermometers that show the same thing. We are now at thousand year highs and the recent temp rise is unprecedented. Looking at one's local weather is no way to gauge small, long-term changes in global average temps.

    Fact is the CO2 levels in the atmosphere have gone up 40% in the last 200 years due to man. CO2 is a greenhouse gas. How could that NOT cause warming? It's a very simple concept ........that the fossil fuel industry wants to keep us confused about. Virtually all the world's climate scientists, and all it's science organizations are in agreement. The basics of the science is settled. The politics? Not so much.

    I guess I could never understand how this all works.

    Thank you to those who have reminded me that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas.

    Re: Seriously?

    Nice job Velobike.

    Shut up, everyone. There is plenty of information out there should you be interested. You're not going to convince angry, science denying codgers of anything over an internet forum. If thousands of scientists, studies, and papers aren't going to convince them, you're not going to either.

    Just take it to the off topic section, will ya.

    Just think, someday there will again be palm trees in Alaska, no more trips to Hawaii to escape the cold.

    Bring it on...just don't try to tell me its my fault, tax me because of it, or say that there are no upsides to it.
    Johnny Horton weighs in on global warming. Can we all agree to make this the final word on this subject? I mean, who can argue with that?

    Thank you for bringing to light a great example of the kind of fraudulent misrepresentation of the science by the fossil fuel funded denier apparatus that has made serious discussion of the issue difficult.

    Anyone who has any interest in this issue at all, and that should be everyone, owes it to themselves to watch this video.

    Why don't you go back to your much more important issue like Nascar '13, instead of wasting time on a trivial issue like the Earth's atmosphere.

    Fatbikes becoming more mainstream is lending to the dilution/pollution of the best forum on MTBR. Just a thought.

    What you really need to do is not say a lot more. You need to learn a lot more. Start here: theoildrum.com You have a long, long way to go before you reach the gates of Clueland.

    My apologies for writing what sounded like a rave as a reaction to "Beachride"'s inclusion of global warming into this thread about a late winter storm in Alaska.

    I had hoped to present a countering view. Please do not think that I am so egocentric or uninformed to think that cooling in my locale is the only event in sight.

    I had hoped that some persons might take the first 5 minutes of that documentary and consider the possibility of conspiracy.

    It seems a discussion devoid of name calling is unlikely. It seems that others' minds are set already. It seems that others' are unwilling to allow the holder of a countering view some modicum of intelligence or common sense.

    I will bow out of this dialogue.

    Is anyone here old enough to remember in school when they told us that pollution in the atmosphere was causing it to cool and we were going to have another ice age. How about the hole in the ozone. Then global warming, now its climate change. All from the same people that live by the publish or perish standard. Man has known that the world is a changing place from the dawn of time. Yes the human race has had an effect on the earth and we should do as much as we can to protect it. But we still need to live here and boy do I like to burn that fossil fuel to heat my house, to go places in a very short time and to make all though thing that make my life easier. I am a consumer of goods as we all are.

    Me. We were also told it would get warmer if we got rid of the pall of smog that hung over most British cities in those days. Now it's gone.
