HA!-
You need to be able to discern sarcasm. I know it is a scam.

Its not a scam.......
Its a new religion, complete with its high priests (Al Gore) and believers that harshly condemn any contrary scientific evidence or points of view (you heretics).

All humans needs a purpose in life (atheism just doesn't do it).
Some people believe in god and the afterlife.
Those that don't, need to believe they can help develop a heaven on earth.

Let all people have their "religious" beliefs, they're basically "positive".
Just recognize it for what it is....a new "global warming" religion.
As long as the believers are not allowed to impose their will on the rest of us politically (example: The Inquisition), we'll be just fine.

I'm just curious what you scientists have determined is causing the weather changes. I remember most of my life (here in the Bay Area) that January and February were cold and WET. Several weeks ago I was too hot sitting on the beach in Santa Cruz.

Don't forget to cover any plants sensitive to frost, like Hydrangea, Jade plant, Birds of paradise, elephant ears, or any annuals that may have been planted early.

Yes, and that anecdotal evidence sounds completely scientific to me.

But I don't have to be a scientist to know that the earth has experienced at least 7 ice ages in it's history. How could that ice possible have gone away...? The earth warmed!
But how could that be?? because for almost all of those periods there were no humans and there certainly were no SUV's.
Possibly, it could be that the earth goes through many cycles with many different factors (like the sun!) affecting the atmosphere.
And as much as we humans like to think that we are all powerful and that every little thing we do has critical impact and consequenses; I think that's just a bit of an overestimation.
This probably comes into play with the religeous theory also.

Two facts often missed in the political talking points.....

* The number one atmospheric greenhouse gas, by a wide margin, is ...... water vapor.

* The human activity on this earth pails in comparison to the SUNS warming effects.

On Global Cooling....

First there were the thoughtful conservatives who saw an economic trap in the Kyoto protocol...

Then there were the apologizers who made it a hip right-wing Republican stance to take... "these liberals are nuts as usual" , and "how come there was snow outside my house on Christmas in South Carolina if there is global warming?"

Followed by a vast majority of people in trouble on economic and other fronts (including globalization which has reduced job security), for whom this was just too abstract and too big a problem to be able to handle...

Then the furore about the attention being paid to those highlighting that the trend cannot be ignored...

Then the anger about treason of the "conservative" scientist appointed by G.W. Bush atop the global scientific forum that concluded this nebulous concept was indeed real (based on data)...

The peeve over treason of the large corporates (ex-friends) adopting this as a cause and trying to position for future profits...

Now that the Denial is over (the end of the beginning), signs of the Resistance movement starting up... after all, who cares if Tokyo or Wall Street or Bangladesh submerges, most of us live away from the sea, especially those in the tri-valley.

Long live the land-lubbers!
