It is 60 degrees in mid-march in the great state of Ohio, is it Global Warming or just a nice day?
It is just a nice day. The cold air is still stuck in the northern polar region because it is being blocked by a high velocity jet stream around the bottom of Canada. The temperature in one region of Russia was -44 deg. Fahrenheit on 12 MAR 2012
It's nice to talk to someone that has sense to answer questions with knowledge and education. Means there is still hope!
Agreed; it's just a nice day.
Ah yes, the 2011-2012 non-winter.
The jet stream varies in latitude. This year it happens to be a long way north in the western hemisphere, trapping cold air up by the poles and allowing warm air to flow north into the United States and southern Canada.
The cold air that should be giving us winter is then being pushed east by the jet stream and dumped on the poor people in Eastern Europe and Russia...they're getting their winter *AND* ours.
Not global warming, just an odd combination of conditions resulting in an unusually mild winter. This has happened before and will happen again...and the reverse could also happen, giving Europe and Russia a really mild/warm winter and us a horribly cold one.

Is Global Warming a myth?There are so many opinions on both sides of this argument. Who is right?

Are you concerned about global warming or do you feel it is more hype than fact?There is a lot of information available about global warming, almost as though there is too much information available. Does the "global warming" issue feel more like a marketing ploy or scientific fact?...

Why do you not believe in Global Warming/Climate Change?I have no doubt our earth is warming at an alarming rate. One of the reasons I think this is because of the photo I included with the question. Otzi--the Iceman--was frozen over 5000 years ago and has remained that way through all sorts of...
