Over a month into Spring, in a city where it hardly ever snows in the middle of Winter,
last night it snowed:

I think scientists prefer to use the term "climate change," which the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change defines as "a statistically significant variation in either the mean state of the climate or in its variability, persisting for an extended period (typically decades or longer). Climate change may be due to natural internal processes or external forcings, or to persistent anthropogenic changes in the composition of the atmosphere or in land use." While it often leads to warmer temperatures, climate change can also result in higher variability in weather events - like snow in spring in warm places.


Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there.

I have relatives in Argentina, said that summer is coming.
I'm jealous of you.Here comes winter. frown Croatia (Eastern Europe).
Global warming is changing climate conditions. In the spring, with us it was the same strange cold days.

Many frog species in Europe and other places are disappearing because of a couple of degrees change in mean temperature.They are fragile and are some of the first to go when climate changes.

My son Nicolás told me he was walking around NY in a t-shirt with 20ºC weather yesterday. Go figure.

I'm a little southwest of your son in N.Y. and here in southeastern Pa. the weather has been cool 30-40deg F. at night and rising into the 70's. Here in the yard still have some flowers that haven't been hit with frost yet. That will all change too soon. Keeping my fingers crossed for a mild-no snow winter. (probably shouldn't have said that.)

It baffles me that there are a bunch of folks who consider themselves so smart that they know that the temperatures we are experiencing now are the "right" temperatures, and that any deviations from these temps is bad. Who's to say the the "best" temperature for the earth isn't 5 degrees warmer or cooler than the levels we are now experiencing?

Temps have been going up and down for eons without human intervention.

All the rest are just scare tactics from the left. Think of Greenland now under the
snow and going back to being green again.

The late Michael Crichton's book "State of Fear" (although not very good as a novel)
is packed with scientific bibliography against global warming.

I suppose the trouble is that certain life forms have adapted to a certain climate(polar bears,amphibians)and they will suffer for any drastic change,man made or not.It is hard to sit by and watch a species disappear and there is always those who want to point fingers. We haven't had the technology to monitor the climate and atmosphere for very long and who really knows how long a shift has been brewing or for what reasons.
