Find your nearest Republican, show them the picutres, and see if they still deny global warming

Hell, even Bush is admiting that the Polar Bears are threatened by the meling artic ice.

The new spin will be "it's natural and unavoidable"

Yeah, maybe NOW, but what if we signed the Kyoto agreements? What if we started 20 years ago getting serious about it? Feh...

I can't believe how warm it is back east. I grew up in NJ. Winters were really cold in the 1950s and 1960s. It's why my parents moved to California in 1970. Now, it's warmer in New York than it is in LA! Yikes.

Even if the global climate change has a natural component to it, we have been contributing to it in a massive way. If we had started cutting our carbon emissions years ago, where would we be now? I think the planet is in very big trouble.

What will all those naysayers do when the american breadbasket moves to Canada, and our midwest turns into a dustbowl?

It's beyond me.

Nice photos. Yes, it's warm here, too. It is supposed to get colder this week. In fact, they're forcasting that later in the week, we might get real winter weather, again. What's worrisome is that so many trees and flowers are already thinking it's spring and when the cold snap arrives, bam, there goes the buds that thought they should come out.
I like warmer weather. I don't seem to manage to get out to the car and scrape the frost off, soon enough, in the mornings.

Pretty scary how warm it is here too. We live in Florida. It was 82 degrees this weekend and we contemplated going to the beach. Seriously. It's never like this in January here. I miss the chill in the air. It didn't even feel like Christmas.

I don't even want to think about why it's like this and how it might be too late to do anything about it. It's too scary.

Thanks for reading and commenting over at my place!

"Are the dead porpoises on Scottish beaches more evidence of global warming?

Hey PoLT, the fourth pic was taken of the bole of a small tree. I walked up to the tree, put my forehead right up near the trunk and shot straight down.

Hi from Barcelona!
Also on this part of the world, thermometers have gone crazy. We're having these days about 17ºC (sorry, I don't know Farenheit); normal would be around 8º!
People are going to the beach these days and it is almost impossible to go skying in the Pyrenees due to lack of snow.
What is happening in the whole world is truly scary. I just hope the politicians who have the power to change things will work for the well-being of the entire humanity and not for destroying our common house!
Sorry for my imperfect English, and greetings!

Welcome to my campfire, En Ferran!

I too wish politicians, and corporations for that matter, would work for the good of the planet, the good of their countries, and the good of their people, but they won't. I guess it's our job to make them.


(sweetie, no apologies needed - you are the one who knows two languages! I studied french in school, but without using it, it just goes away) I think 8 degreesC is in the mid 40'sF. 17 degC would be in the sixties, since 23 is around 70 - 75. (guess/estimating)
