    Notice how many records have been set recently. Y'all can say there is no global warming but our area sure seems to be warming. We are currently having the longest heat wave on record, consecutive days over 95 and there is no end in sight until this coming Monday.

    And when the cold weather records eventually start falling, that'll also be global warming.

    And last winter all of the cold records were called weather - not climate.

    We had a similar streak in 1988...and nothing like it since. Maybe global warming took 24 years off here :)

    1980 was the hottest summer around here. I remember it was 50+ consecutive days of 100+ temperature.

    We had no winter here. It was like a long, long autumn. We had only one skiff of snow and no really cold days.

    We will find out what "Global Warming" is someday and people will have nothing to do with it.

    It has been hot to be sure--not as hot as it could be. We are not really acclimated and are too accustomed to the creature comforts. Many of us would probably perish without air conditioning.

    A lot of this global warming hocus pocus is put out to sell books--put out by AlGoreCo. No doubt man has polluted the planet. The biggest offenders just pay the fines and keep on polluting. It is extremely expensive to do military/industrial complex with little pollution.

    There is a periodicity evident in climatology. Sometimes you get ice sometimes you get monsoon; sometime you hot and cold in the same day and night. An interesting surf: the 23 1/2 degree tilt of the earth--how it got there and what effect it has on climate and seasons.

    The scripture says the earth and all the works are going to burn up--melt with fervent heat. There is going to be a new heaven and a new earth in righteousness, without the effects of sin and the depravity of man.

    Buy stock in gas masks and radiation survey meters. Fukishima is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Even so, come Lord Jesus.

    Don't forget that thirty years ago there was talk of a new imminent ice age.

    This is where I'm at on this issue. There is global warming, it's undeniable. But it depends on where you set the endpoints for the graph. And I don't think humans are responsible for global warming.
