    Nope, that's not how it works. This winter, while the polar vortex was kicking ass up here, it was more than 120 degrees in Australia. Very simply, if you take the temperature on spots all over the earth and average them out, it is easy to see that the temperature of the globe has increased.

    And, by the way, I DO live in a 95 percent black neighborhood. Nobody worries about getting drunk on Sonic vanilla shakes in my neighborhood. People here are a bit more sophisticated than that. They read a lot. Next time you are in Houston, I will buy myself a beer at the local bar. I'll get you a Sonic vanilla shake, and we can both get a buzz going.

    Irrelevant analogy, or more likely, deflection.
    The connection is that "but this has always happened" is not an argument for causing that thing to happen more. The so-called skeptics often declare that "climate has always changed," as if this is some stunning revelation that AGW proponents have never considered, and also as if it actually means anything.

    No, but when Greenland melts my drink will be quite full.

    Uh but they claim that the ice cap is shriniking.

    The alarmist ( delusionists ) also quote warm WEATHER as evidence of climate change.

    Cannot have it both ways

    There's a saying that a little bit of information is dangerous. You anti science folks always cling to little bits without digging even a little further:

    The take home messages is that while the increase in total Antarctic sea ice area is relatively minor compared to the Arctic, it masks the fact that some regions are in strong decline. Given the complex interactions of winds and currents driving patterns of sea ice variability and change in the Southern Ocean climate system, this is not unexpected.

    Hey now, that's not totally fair. Talking about minimum wage and gender gaps is also very important.

    Local weather is influenced by man made things. For example a city will be warmer than the suburbs. Does that mean climate change? As you urbanize an area you skew the temperature reading points higher than what would otherwise been a natural habitat.

    A more interesting area to study would be ocean temperatures, since there is no/little local outside influence of man and would more directly show climate temperature vs local temperature as ocean current temperatures are not only a product of the local temperature, but on a much more global scale.

    I have no dog in this fight and have many of my own opinions. that being said, it is interesting to note here just how wrong the predictions were 20 years ago for us today. Also it is intresting that we pump out more and more CO2 today than 20 years ago, yet global temperatures have NOT risen on par with the CO2 increase the past 10 - 15 years.

    The of cause cancer is genetic. Normal your body can handle changes and fixes the issue. That's obviously ruling out children who get cancer but even that's still genetic. As you get older the mutations are faster and your body can't keep up with it. End result is cancer.. it's why you see people of older age having cancer.

    Smoking doesn't cause cancer, rather it's mutation which normally happens anyway.. and if you stick with that you shouldn't smoke routine.. ban all cars while you are at it.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
