I agree with PTP- it happens all the time, day after day, year after year. They're called seasons. Man-made global warming is absurd! Watch the discovery channel's history of earth programs- they show an amazing fluctuation in temperatures over millions of years- why should it stay the same for us now? In fact, watching that kind of show really makes you feel insignificant in the long view of things.

We are so insignificant in the big picture that is is absurd to think that we could do anything to warm or cool the earth. It is like a group of ants aboard the Titanic thinking they were responsible for it sinking because they passed gas- dumb analogy, but you get the idea.

The earth goes thru cycles. Thousands of years ago, Europe was a rain forest. It amazes me, how much attention is given to GORE and all of his BS. And people believe him and give him donations. If you have any extra money, pass it this way. $3.89 gas is hurting. Thanks in advance for your donations.

wow. Yes, absolutely it is happening. The effects? No one knows, but to argue with experts without proper research is stupid, and that's what is happening here. Glad to know that I get to compete against you guys for business, cause brains ain't what you got. It's not an argument anymore.

The coldest temperature ever recorded in the United States was -80 F (- 62 C) and occured Jan 23, 1971 in Prospect Creek Camp, Alaska.
The national weather service recorded 56.7 °C (134 °F). The date reported there was July 10, 1913 in Death Valley Cali.

What about the dust bowl years? The goes in 30 -40 year cycles

The topic of Global warming is the tree hugging liberals story to make everyone become afraid of impending global disaster caused by our own selves. And if we donate $$$ to them they'll fix everything. When I was in school 20 years ago, we were taught about global warming. a few years later we were en route to a mini ice age. and now, woops... *scratching head* we're REALLY experiencing global warming. SERIOUSLY! I think..... Truth is, this we collectively didn't make this globe we live on and we certainly won't destroy it either. When God, the Creator decides to take it out, He will. The problem is not CFC's destroying the atmosphere. It's sin, plain and simple and we're all contributors.

According to geologic records and other historical data the earth has gone through several climate changes. Previous changes were not caused by man what makes anybody think man is having a significant effect now? Besides in the last 10 years the earth has not warmed. Last winter was one of our coldest and near record snowfall. This past summer we barely got tomatoes to ripen.
