    Maybe, I don't know.

    I will be dead long before this has potential serious consequences for me PLUS I try and do my part to be 'green' PLUS I have no intention of ever fathering children (I am not that selfish)...so I really don't care all that much.

    If humanity ends due to it's own selfishness...then it is not worth saving and good riddance.

    And if they are not that selfish...then they will fix the problem.

    Either way...they will probably get what they deserve...and that is fine with me.


    10 years ago I would have put money on the latter.

    Now...I don't think I would.

    Doesn't alarm me.

    And the warning siren for this shtick has been sounding for years now.

    It's a non-issue, so far as I am concerned.

    Since I'm an old guy who won't be around when the poo-poo hits the fan, I'm not losing any sleep over this.

    I do my best to be green, but I don't worry about what others do or don't do.

    No, because 1) Storms are no more violent than usual. 2) Droughts in the Midwest and wildfires are not out of the ordinary, 3) We don't know what's normal for ice caps because we've only been able to monitor them accurately for a relatively short time.

    If you want to know what's happening with the temperature then look at a thermometer. The thermometer shows no warming in the last 15 years, so why would warming be causing all these changes to occur?

    Scroll down for extremes of temperatures, storm intensity, drought, and other stuff.
