It's bitterly cold in Chicago right now; wasn't global warming supposed to heat things up?
Global warming is warming things up in Chicago--that doesn't mean that every day or every month or every year is warmer than the one that preceded it.
Meanwhile... Australia's heat wave is taking a toll on people, animals, infrastructure and land. It's summertime in Australia, and the country is in the throes of record-breaking heat wave sthat has brought suffering to humans, animals and land. Temperatures in the south have soared past 118 degrees Fahrenheit. Even coal plants are failing.
And there are wildfires in Australia. And remember California last summer? Chicago is not the whole world and weather is not climate.
Global warming refers to the global "average" temperature increase. Keeping weather records has only been extensive and thorough in more recent times. Each year, record breaking cold temperatures should be expected in several regions and cities. Also expect record breaking hot temperatures in many regions and cities. The records that are broken may be for the year, season, month or day. On average the global temperature is warmer by about 1.5 degrees Celsius. Although global warming is occurring extremely rapidly in geologic terms, it is quite slow in relation to the human lifespan and people do not notice it day-to-day. If it cannot be seen NOW in their personal location, people have a tendency to dismiss it as fake. But temperature measurements are real, recorded, and accessible. Polar and glacial ice melting is real and documented along with rising sea levels.
there's a heat wave (again) in Alaska Climate scientists are right again
All praise Chicago cooling. The lake is froze over. There is ice to cut. Money to be made by those who will work a day. Or more in Chicago.
With global warming it's not how cold it gets it's how short cold snaps are. Decades ago cold snaps lasted longer. With global warming it's not how much snow you get it's how soon it thaws. Decades ago I remember snow on the ground all winter with no visible grass. Now it's common to see grass during the winter even if it is 2-3 weeks after a big snow storm. The math says more energy means more chaos. That's wider variation in addition to a higher average.
No you stupid fvck and we’re getting tired of explaining it to you a$sholes over and over and over and over. Have a nice day though
What part of GLOBAL don't you understand? To the east and west of the tongue of cold air pushed south by the polar vortex, the temperatures are warmer than normal. When some cold air blows south, warmer air flows north to replace it.
it's 72 & sunny here .........................................
Global warming causes climate CHANGE - on average warmer, but, some places can be colder. And, something that happens quickly is weather, not climate.
Global warming only works in the summer.
Global warming doesn’t work that way. Supposed to get extremely cold up there. Stay warm.
2018 was the third-warmest year on record. The two warmer years were 2016 and 2015.
Oh idiots are we? WE WILL SEE ABOUT THAT BECAUSE IF WE DO NOT DO SOMTHING IN THE NEXT 12-11 YEARS THE TEMPERATURE IS GOING TO GO SO HIGH THERE WILL BE NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT! W ARE ALL F.....
It is far colder than normal in Chicago right now... why it is almost like, I don't know, Chicago's climate is changing or something...
And, you won't get the 'warmers' to come out and explain to us why it is so cold, either. They are full of crap if they think we cause it, not God.
