Man, we are hot!!

a) I don't buy it, looking out my window and seeing the mounds of snow and the thermometer dipping waaay below average. Not to mention the extraordinarily cold summer we had.

b) funny, if it is true, how a one year spike means we are warming the earth (notice the WE, not a natural phenomenon) and a year's dip is not even mentioned.

Guess that proves that there has been NO increase in Global Warming since 1998.

CO2 keeps going up tho.

Apparently it's so hot in the UK that there is a plan to relocate fish in English lakes further north to Scotland.

This plan seems to be contained in some report on adapting to climate change to be released this week, part of a series of about 100 reports. If JEB is looking for ideas for a new list, a list of government adaptation measures for climate change could be promising.
