Is there a drastic change in our weather?

With news of the recent tornadoes taht hit New York and other recent unusual weather conditions like this years melting of the Artic ice, do you agree that our world's weather is changing? Things like thesevere drought in Russia that devastated crops there has already lead to price rises in food. What other effects are we likely to see?

It's called global warming! And I think this is just the beginning! I think hurricanes will become more frequent and even stronger with each coming hurricane season. I think earthquakes will increase in frequency everywhere and also become stronger. Tornadoes will continue to occur where they've never been seen before. Humans just cannot continue to burn fuels, cut down forests, and propagate at the current rate and not pay a price...I realize this is just my opinion, but I feel it in my bones!!!!

I think our weather is constantly changing. Difficult to predict where this will take us. My own feeling is that we need to make better use of renewable energy to reduce the side effects of using fossil fuels. Crop losses seem to create never reversed rises in food costs: I've never seen prices fall when production gets back to normal.

Hiya chem, Drastic weather changes are taking place in Spain too this Country has seen drought before and I hope it´s the last. This is the first year that we have had our Reservoirs full to the top almost. At the moment it´s so good that they won´t need to build any more Dams either. We have plenty of flash Flooding and the poor drainage they have here does not help either. I remember the Drought in England and we had to see that through did´nt we? I remember that one all right. I suppose we have to take it as it comes. Here in this side of the Country it is not Raining very much and it´s all too dry again.
