Default I'm not sure "Globabl Warming" is the right term for what we're experiencing, but:

50 degrees right now in Boston, 12 days from Christmas. Two days ago it was 15. I think what we're seeing is the weather growing more inconsistent over time, not always hotter, just wilder.

northern europe's had a really early freeze this year. weird is right. though the average global temperatures between february and october of 2010 (or something like that) was warmer than its been in the last 150 years, so the global average remains consistent. i think.

i can't and don't claim to understand global climate models in any significant way, but i am smart enough to be reasonably certain in distinguishing moronic tall tales from fact backed theory, and it tickles (and simultaneously frustrates) my fancy to no end listening to the padded rhetoric that plagues partisan politics in the form of speeches, blogs, columns/articles, and the like. the fact that an issue like climate change, all important and all too frequently discussed, has taken such a nosedive in intelligent discourse, solely because of its illogical partisan division, really is one of the biggest headaches western politics have ever managed. it's just f*cked up to no end.

(no reference to anybody in this thread btw, just a general comment. though obviously there are ish personalities to which most of that would undoubtedly apply)

as usual, this cat is the biggest fool on the site. As for the term "global warming", like all mediazations of actual science, its a misnomer. That is why there is a push to call it global climate change instead. Some places will get more rain, some less, etc. The point is that our burning of fossil fuels has fundamentally shifted both the atmospheric composition and the global carbon cycle. This will impact the "weather" in both predictable (usually on a global, long term scale - i.e. global warming refers to the general longitudinal trend of the entire earth) and unpredictable (local weather patterns, day to day and year to year patterns, etc) ways. People who deny the anthropogenic impact on the atmosphere are either straight morons (who usually dont know the first thing about the actual data, just dismiss it), deniers (usually because its tooooo scary to think about), or are profiting massively from our continued dependence on the burning of carbon sinks like oil and gas.

I was under the impression that the accepted term was Global Climate Change

For instance, the global governing body on dealing with the effects of increased carbon is the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change

Even it is really a global warming, you cannot do anything about it right now.

Good post.

Animals have also been going extinct at rates higher than most documented mass extinctions that have had to do with large meteorite impacts, epic volcanic eruptions (or both in one), gradual ice ages, and any other global life killing phenomena.

This is due to us, humanity, not natural climate shifting (which is what energy companies and republicans try and pretend). It's still baffling to me that there are still people out there who deny our negative impact on the planet. We're agruably worse than global disasters, because we constantly destroy and manipulate the environment (and animals) to our will with no reprieve whatsoever. I honestly think we're screwed, but I'll be dead long before we get to that point of no return where humanity realizes it's doomed itself by overharvesting and overpopulating the planet.
