    Forget global warming - it's Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again) | Mail Online


    So now we will have the usual canards about the paper reporting the Mets conclusions not being a scientific publication (so what it is simply reporting what the Met stated).

    The radicals will never be convinced, especially since so much legislation, incomes and reputations are riding on this artificial crisis of this decade.

    It is SUMMER over there right now, right?

    Besides, the article is about what the Met and East Anglia said. My opinion is irrelevant.

    Jim,my apologies if you though I was being personel,I was teasing but we have had sustained change here for the past 25 years,global warming is effecting us big time.
    There is evidence that the poles are affected,you only have to check out Greenland to see how much ice etc., has been lost over the past 30 years.......the strange thing is though,that in Alaska some glaciers have actully increased!!!!!There is something going on Jim.Maybe you could elucidate ?????regards steve:cool:Your opinion by the way is relevant......yes it's summer here and its been 40c+ for the past few weeks......loads of bush fires and all,yet flooding in the Eastern States

    Yes. It's called the passage of time. WA usually gets that hot for nearly that long most years. Glaciers recede and grow. It has far more to do with snow, than climate.

    I dont think anyone doubts that temps have risen to 1998 or so world wide average, but two questions remain:

    1. is it still continuing to warm up over all globally? While my native state of Texas got blistered and you guys down there too, the rest of the US has had cool seasons and the average world wide is a bit lower since 1998.

    2. How much of this is due to human activity? I think some but I cant believe it is the primary driver of climate change when the release of CO2 by every day ocean activity dwarfs anything we do.

    Its a mess to be sure trying to figure out this climate change stuff.

    All I know is as a conservative fella I will do as little as I can to mess with the climate.

    Yep Jim,I think you maybe right....here in Perth and the North West inparticular there is much mining of raw mineral but no polluting add on industries at all......all I know is it's getting bloody hotter,year by year as I said,and the rainfall decreasing.steve
