Recent times, global warming has become a bigger social and environmental issue. Everywhere you can see people collecting funds to fight against global warming... But on the other side, we are witnessing record low and coldest weather here in various parts of USA.... what do u guys think is the reason? if it is global warming shudnt we be experiencing relatively less colder winter???

Climate change, or what some people refer to as global warming, is a natural phenomenon. We can no more control the climate than we can prevent ourselves from dying. The whole global warming movement is a sham. To be more exact, it is politically and economically driven. Just look at how many politicians, world leaders, and environmentalists are using all forms of media to advance their agenda; look at how lawmakers and people in the energy sector are proposing new laws and new forms of energy all in the name of saving the planet from a threat that doesn't even exist. There is a lot of money and power to be had in the name of global warming but first they have to get everyone, or at least a majority of the world population to believe that there is a crisis and that we can somehow stop it. We hear a lot about CO2. About how man-made CO2 is contributing to global warming as if the CO2 that we create artificially is somehow having a detrimental affect on the environment. Well, for one thing, CO2 is CO2. There is no difference between the CO2 we exhale and the CO2 we produce through industry or some other artificial means. And second, CO2 is necessary for trees and other forms of vegetation to produce the oxygen that we need to breathe. There are plenty of renowned, experienced scientists around the world that can give proof that global warming is natural and is nothing to worry about and that have also tried to share their findings with the world but they are drowned out by the constant rhetoric being pitched by the alarmists and even some of these scientists have been ridiculed and labeled as fools until they backed down or no one took them seriously. All this cold weather in some places and warm weather in others is all a part of the natural order of things. And if the weather acts kind of strange sometimes it's not the first time. Here are some websites that will give you the facts about climate and weather that the global warming alarmists would rather you didn't see. http://www.ourcivilisation.com/aginatur/moregw.htm http://www.co2science.org/ http://www.worldclimatereport.com/ http://pmcms.smartgreenusa.com/

Someone once told me that global warming does not necessarily mean warm weather. Instead, it warms the Earth and makes all weather more severe. That means harsher winters along with hotter summers. Not sure how legit that is, but it's what I have heard.

It is because of global warming,you are receiving more cold weather and in the summer days you will receive more heat.That is the first sign we ca experience by global warming.The entire environment is changing throughout the world and changing of seasons also occuring.More species are not seen anymore and the persisting ones are changing their migration.This will all prove fatal.Let us join hands to fight against this so to leave a beautiful world for our younger generation.

Huh, it's pretty warm here. I remember when I was a lot younger we used to have colder winters in Pennsylvania. Still, global warming is a long term, global trend that doesn't necessarily show up uniformly everywhere at the same time. At least that is my understanding of how it works.

hi aaamine...hehe you know no one really knows. it's something to consider taking care of nature. but as far as the freezing part that was covered in the movie The Day After Tomorrow. there was a long explanation.

You would think that would be the case, wouldn't you? I'm not entirely convinced that global warming is a problem instead of simply part of the natural cycle of the Earth but, then again, I'm no expert. I do know that weather patterns control the temperature and they've been pretty much on track.

thanks spalladino, good to hear that the factors are on track
