How can you not know the answers to some of these, and not look up the others, in today's world of access and information? To answer your third question (which shows you are just being argumentative without actually pondering these questions) the sun has been around for at a few decades, if not more. There has no been considerable sunspot activity (of a global-changing magnitude) for hundreds of years. It's a constant. It's the atmosphere it shines through that is the variable.

And then my favorite: "If the world is warming, why are some winters and summers still very cold?". Seriously? My third grader can answer that one. Oh, and I love "How fast is the sea level rising?" Because that's SUCH a mystery, right? It hasn't been tracked for decades or anything like that. If you're looking for witches to burn, I'm afraid they've all gone. But you may find some aliens at your next monster-truck rally. Good luck.

How do scientists know that recent climate change is largely caused by human activities? CO2 is already in the atmosphere naturally, so why are emissions from human activity significant? What role has the sun played in climate change in recent decades? Is there a point at which adding more CO2 will not cause further warming? Does the recent slowdown of warming mean that climate change is no longer happening? If the world is warming, why are some winters and summers still very cold? Why is Arctic sea ice decreasing while Antarctic sea ice is not? How fast is sea level rising? What is ocean acidification and why does it matter

Yes, Harley, it is all a myth. The polar caps are not melting, pushing colder water into the oceans, altering the jet stream and as a result dumping colder moisture onto you in the Winter. Warming means that it should be noticeably warmer all year round, doesn't it? It is just common sense, isn't it?

The Australian Open had some heat issues just last month.

But whatever is happening in your backyard is more indicative, right?

Brat and mrhomer: Hey, I don't want to drive in it, but we are told, and shown company policies, that state "inclement weather is not to be considered a deterrent from arriving at your place of employment. Only a county-wide Level 3 issuance can be considered an acceptable excuse, and only if the Level 3 issuance continues past 1PM of that day".

And I need my job, so....

armybrat most of the time I agree with you but on this I don't. If I have to go in town to get something I need and I have 4 wheel drive truck I should be able to do that if I need to. Have a good one! :)

This storm was predicted for several days before it hit this area. Unless it is an emergency, no one should have been out on the roads. I heard from a friend that there was the usually the panic shopping and store buy outs.
