    We also live on a planet that looks nothing like it ever has before and has had severe weather and climate changes so many times.

    2006, according to the wahington post and the NOAA, beating 2005, that was then the warmest year of the century...


    NASA has a nice list of top 5 warmest years since 1890...

    1) 2006
    2) 2005
    3) 1998
    4) 2002
    5) 2003
    2005 was the "warmest year since the late 1890's", and 2006 topped that to become the hottest year on record - but last year if you asked that it could have have been sometime in the 1890's, i think. I dont hear it mentioned much, that might mean it was more of ananomolus spike... or it might mean that the government started collecting national temperature data in 1895. Then agan, the disclaimer "since the 1890's" might not indicate a hot year around that time period at all but when records started in the firstplace.
    that makes no logic

    wrong according to NASA its:
    1934
    1998
    1921
    2006
    1931
    1999
    1953
    1990
    1938
    1939

    apparently NASA's program had a Y2K bug and screwed up the numbers for 2000-2006........if yah dont believe me check their website....2000, 2002, 2003, 2004 were actually cooler than even 1900....................

    Since it's global warming we talk about, here's a chart:

    Even in the US, the 1930s included some cool years. Those don't happen anymore.

    Ok i checked the website and found this

    http://www.nasa.gov/vision/earth/env...5_warmest.html


    -http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/140894main_BlueMarble_2005_warm.jpg-

    Its from 2005, so its dated, but this IS from nasa too.

    Could you show me where your date came from?


    And, for interest, here's some more links i found

    http://www.nasa.gov/vision/earth/env...ld_warmth.html


    I checked the NOAA for US data instead or worldwide and this is the chart



    The last eight 5-year periods (2002-2006, 2001-2005, 2000-2004, 1999-2003, 1998-2002, 1997-2001, 1996-2000, 1995-1999), were the warmest 5-year periods (i.e. pentads) in the last 112 years of national records, illustrating the anomalous warmth of the last decade.
    And the climate reveiw summery http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/climate/...s-summary.html
    that makes no logic

    explain to me why Mars and the other planets in our solar system are also warming up? man cause that aswell?
    Oh, that's an easy one: They aren't.

    http://www.realclimate.org/index.php...mars/#more-192

    That blog is hands down the best resource on climate change on the web, bar none. It is totally devoid of politics and economics, concerned solely with the science and written from a very technical perspective (complete with references) by a group of climatologists.

    If you hear anything on Faux News again about GW, just search this site and you'll find an explanation (complete with peer-review journal references) that goes into *way* too much detail while blowing it out of the water.


    in the spirit of Rattler's post, I offer another challenge: Carbon 13 is produced naturally in our atmosphere via cosmic radiation. The claim that increased solar radiation causes global warming leads to the logical prediction that the ratio of c-13 to c-12 would increase. If, however, the extra CO2 in the air is from fossil fuels (which are so old the c-13 has long since decayed into c-12), then the ratio should go down.

    Guess which is true. http://www.realclimate.org/index.php?p=87
