Global warming is just another scam or tax from the government to get more money out of people.

I might have to do the same thing. It was 40* this morning and it took an hour to get my car started. It hasn't been that cold on a loooooong time so my cold start settings were way off.

I know what you mean about the global warming. Just one day of meteorological phenomena totally disproves the ozone/carbon/sea-level rise bullshit Obama wants us to believe.

The theory of global warming also covers something about extremes (see the movie The Day After Tomorrow?). The cold this year has been pretty extreme. Also, quit crying, it was -16F here all day last Thursday and Friday.

My BMW takes forever to start...actually, it takes the same six cranks it always does, but with near 0* weather, those six turnovers take a LOT longer.

You all ought to be ashamed of yourselves- Hustler knows more science than you do.

For those that don't get his sarcasm, Hustler seems to be making a joke out of the fact that most of you guys are bitching about a few days' weather when the theory of global warming revolves around climate.

From Wikipedia, for those who failed Earth Science in middle school...
Weather: Weather is a set of all the phenomena occurring in a given atmosphere at a given time.
Climate: Climate encompasses the temperatures, humidity, rainfall, atmospheric particle count and numerous other meteorological factors in a given region over long periods of time

it's been said but "global warming" means you get extremes in both directions, not just warming.

I don't think it got to 52 degrees yesterday, and hit 32 in Tampa last night. It is currently 49 now. That pretty darn cold for us down here.

They cant explain Global Warming, err, Climate Change. Climate changes are cyclic, and take centuries to complete one cycle.

Hell, the Farmers Almanac predicted cooler weather for the years to come. They are seldom wrong, and they have been doing it since the 18th century. Read on...

note that the term is more accurately "climate change", not global warming anymore.

also note that raising the earth's AVERAGE TEMPERATURE may mean that your dumb *** is 10 degrees colder and africa is 20 degrees warmer.

ALSO NOTE that one of the biggest effects climate change / global warming will have on the environment is not that your weatherman has to count higher, but that the weather will become more extreme and have greater swings of intensity than it does now or did before. ie more hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, etc. ie. hustler will keep his job.

I am going to guess that the majority who doubt global warming are Republicans.

Figure that one out...following the teachings of a political party over science!!


Edit: By the way, it is a worldwide AVERAGE temperature increase. It doesn't mean that it is never going to get cold again!
