    In summer, yes; in winter, no; beyond this, all is speculative.

    Global warming is a BOGUS back door plan to scare or trick people into SOCIALISIM---We give up the same stuff Cars, energy, meat, fuel etc. the sane things Socialist Governments cant provide enough of---and look how many KNOWN Socialists are pushing this nonsense--------Check the fake Science test on the photo "Global Warming" has at least TWO hits (1 and 5) on it----making it definitely BOGUS. The fake Science test works with all fields BTW.

      It was warmer in the Middle AGES and Viking times then got COLD (mini Ice Age) and began to warm up again since the early 1700s.

    The evidence is pretty consistent with warming since around 1800. There is evidence, although less free from discussion as to value and validity when compared to the historical evidence, that the rate of warming is increasing. However, we are still within this period of general warming. Denial of the easily demonstrated evidence for that change is a waste of time. The argument can only be about the reasons for the change, not about whether there is change.

    I do not think that all oil companies can be painted truthfully as deniers of change. They tend to be deniers of the importance of CO2 in causing or sustaining that change. Even if you accept that man does cause some or all of the warming, that still leaves discussion of the net impact of such change (its good versus bad aspects) and even if there is something that we humans can do to change anything.

    The simplistic argument of true or false is not applicable. This is not a black or white, on or off argument.

    It's true. The evidence is clear the Earth is warming. Some question if that is a result of human activity but the scientific evidence is overwhelming that it is.

    There are several issues. Since prior to 1900 the earth has been warming. This can easily be measured and checked via meteorological records.

    That could not be in dispute.

    There is a dispute over what it means.

    Is it a) cyclic b) an aberration or c) part of a longer term trend.

    then there is the cause.

    is it a) the result of man's activity or b) the result of natural processes not yet understood.

    Obviously no one KNOWS the answers to the latter two points.

    What we can know is that if we put CO2 into a glass house the temperatures rise.

    We HAVE put ( and are continuing to put ) CO2 into the atmosphere so we would predict the temperatures to rise.

    CO2 is a low energy state and we have no means at all for restoring the existing CO2 back to stored carbon.

    The the last point is the decision making issue. Is it better to act if no action is needed, or is it better to fail to act if in fact action is necessary.

    This depends on your age.

    If you are over 60 years old then action involves a cost now and the benefits ( if any) exist after you are dead.

    For YOU it is better to get what you can now and leave any problems to the future.

    This affects other decisions. Fracking and the use of oil, gas or indeed copper, zinc and other materials.

    Who cares if we run out 40 years from now unless you are going to live for 40 more years.

    So the policy of putting the elderly in positions of power and denying power to those under 18 directly causes the "eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die" method of "Governance".

    The Earth is experiencing a global cooling as the result of heat from the center of the earth is exiting via the crust.

    The Earth continuously cools sometimes at different rates.As the earth orbit slows down and the angle of spin changes, the earth receives more insolation which causes the atmosphere to increase its temperature.

    Deforestation is the basic cause of weather changes. Carbon dioxide is a nutrient that is necessary for forests to survive. without CO2 forests would not survive.

    Perhaps we are entering a heat Age.There was a ice age in the past.Now the reverse is occurring to the point where the temperature will be so High that we will roast like a turkey and no one in the government will be able to stop it.
