BWAHAHAHAHAHA! In 1978 the Midwest experienced a near record snowfall and blizzard, the like of which we have not experienced since. Climate change? No. This is an example of weather. For climate change, one needs to look backwards many centuries to determine if a trend in weather patterns is shifting. If you do take the time to look thru historical weather data please make certain the data has not been tampered with or changed. For example, the years 1928 thru to the beginning of World War II recorded the warmest temperatures ever experienced for hundreds o years. Oh, we had some warm days in 2012 but not as high as in the 30’s. Interestingly, The Weather Channel, the News Agency Tass of the climate change chicken little’s ran a one hour special last year detailing the 10 most devastating hurricanes on record for the US since 1851′. My wife and were amazed that they listed half pre 1940, (1900, 1926, 1928, 1935, 1938). Coincidence? This is certainly not climate change.

Reading thru the data our own government uses to push their agenda one will learn that if every person a every business in the country reduced their so called carbon foot print to the prescribed levels we would only reduce the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere by .03% (that’s point zero three percent). The human race has not, cannot and will not have a impact o the earth’ climate.

I checked the charts, and couldn’t find any confirmation of this warming trend in the 1930s; did you have a source for that? According to the NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, the 1930s were somewhat cooler than average, the 1940s somewhat warmer, but nothing like the rise in average temperatures we’ve seen lately. And of course the industrial revolution had been going strong for a century before then; if in fact heat records had been set then in contrast to previous centuries, this would confirm, not disprove, the theory of anthropogenic global climate change.

Of course, common sense tells us that isolated incidents like the snowstorm of 1978 referred to above prove nothing about gradually rising temperature averages. The fact that it gets cold somewhere for a while is pretty irrelevant in the face of overwhelming evidence of global warming. Whether a hurricane is "devastating" or not depends on where it makes landfall, which is fairly random. If it happens to hit a major population center, it will cause a lot of damage, even if it’s a relatively small storm, while a big one that misses won’t do much more than tear up trees and cause flooding. Measuring wind speeds or the pressure of the central depression tells us more about a hurricane’s force than the amount of economic damage it inflicts. Of the ten most intense hurricanes on record, measured by these standards, five of them occurred since 2003, and only two of them happened before Camille in 1969: https://weather.com/storms/hurricane…es-20130911#/1 So common sense would tell you that these things are getting worse lately, right?

If the "prescribed levels" of carbon footprint reduction only achieve a .03% reduction in greenhouse gasses (a claim I couldn’t find any confirmation for), then common sense should tell you that they aren’t prescribing enough of it, probably for political reasons. What we really have to do, on a global scale, is to move quickly toward using energy sources that don’t compromise our atmosphere, and look hard at other sources of carbon pollution like cement processing and methane from cattle-feeding. It may be that devastating climate change is already beyond our power to reverse, but our common sense should tell us to do what we can about it now, rather than deny the scientific facts that make the situation abundantly clear.
