    There are people on this thread that have been flap yapping about a cooling trend for many years. Yet, by every measure, we are warming, and doing so rapidly. One of the best measures of whether we are warming or cooling is glaciers. They reflect long term trends.

    If we are warming, why is it this year, the temperature is 10 degrees colder than it was this time last year? Go ahead, if you want to save the planet take the first step to heal it. If enough of you deniers of actual science remove yourselves, pretty soon their aren't any lunatics left and the planet is saved...

    If the glaciers ever retreat from Chicago, we're doomed!

    Being a bit silly there, Toddster. When enough of the Himalayan glaciers recede far enough, agriculture for a lot of asian land is doomed. But that only affects a portion of humanity. No, we are not doomed by global warming, but our children and grandchildren will inherit a much poorer world than the one we have. If that is the legacy you like, fine.

    How does Asian agriculture do when their glaciers are advancing?

    That’s nothing. Glacier Bay glacier in Alaska receded 60 miles in 70 years.

    IN THE 19Th CENTURY.

    Fortunately, I think we have the technology to adjust and continue to feed the world. Whether the countries of the world can cooperate enough to let that happen is another matter.
    The climate change is going to affect what areas of the globe are arable and produce abundant crops. That is already causing huge migration of peoples from one country to another and causing a lot of social and political instability.
    Instability socially and environmentally are not a good combination.
    We should be getting it together, not pulling out of international agreements to work toward solutions. We will need the solutions, and if we wait, it will be too late.
