Figure 2. On February 19, the NWS office in Hanford, CA, tweeted this photo of a nearly snowless landscape, taken in Yosemite National Park at an elevation of 8,100 feet. Image credit: Elizabeth Christie.

If California does not get some major snow storms in the Sierras this month, they are going to have major problems with water this year. Bad cess for all.

Two words sums it up, "Mother Nature".

Hansen et al. 1981
Hansen, J., D. Johnson, A. Lacis, S. Lebedeff, P. Lee, D. Rind, and G. Russell, 1981: Climate impact of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide. Science, 213, 957-966, doi:10.1126/science.213.4511.957.

The global temperature rose 0.2°C between the middle 1960s and 1980, yielding a warming of 0.4°C in the past century. This temperature increase is consistent with the calculated effect due to measured increases of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Variations of volcanic aerosols and possibly solar luminosity appear to be primary causes of observed fluctuations about the mean trend of increasing temperature. It is shown that the anthropogenic carbon dioxide warming should emerge from the noise level of natural climate variability by the end of the century, and there is a high probability of warming in the 1980s. Potential effects on climate in the 21st century include the creation of drought-prone regions in North America and central Asia as part of a shifting of climatic zones, erosion of the West Antarctic ice sheet with a consequent worldwide rise in sea level, and opening of the fabled Northwest Passage.

It looks like we have given Mother Nature a helping hand.

Has not the worlds weather patterns been constantly changing since the beginning of creation? Or is it that the weather and constantly changing tends have become such an inconvenience to the almighty family of modern man? What if the sun did govern weather patterns, which it does, would the scientific community then attempt to alter the effect of the sun on the earth? How would science change to mitigate the effect of volcano's and movement of the earths crust?

I'd just like to see those who talk about science actually present what they talk about. Let's see the experiment that shows that CO2 is a sun!!

You can see that science right here. From the American Institute of Physics, the largest scientfic society in the world;

The Carbon Dioxide Greenhouse Effect
and from that society we get Herr Koch's experiment that proves my point! Adding CO2 will not do anything to temperatures. And again, if you wish to challenge his experiment you supply one that proves your position and disproves Herr Koch's.
