So we take 100 MILLION acres of what used to be yellow winter grass and turn it into black plowed ground, and are surprised that one million less of those acres have snow cover? From the same people who said we could slow global warming by painting our roofs white? Can I sell these people a bridge in Brooklyn? Bill G.

And just how can you make it snow more for the ski slopes by driving electric cars and using curly light bulbs? Let's just blame it on George Bush.

A scant amount of snow...gobal warming. Huge snowfalls....global warming. Hot summer.....global warming. Cool summer.....global warming. Am I the only one seeing a pattern here? It's amazing how no matter what the outcome it's due to global warming. I think if that's your religion all data is skewed to demonstrate that for these articles contradict each other but they all point to the same causation. At this point...I'm no longer buying it.

No matter the weather phenomenon.......it's explained by global warm, err......climate change. A bit of a self fulfilling prophecy wouldn't ya say?! Because there has never been weather ans/or climate fluctuations in the last 100+ years. It's always been been constant and predictable.

Just remember that the article said we will have more and bigger blizzards. That also goes for tornados and the size of them too. And hurricans. What this all comes down to is stronger and bigger odd weather and less snow. And we cannot do much about any of this.

Chicken Little, the sky is falling, the sky is falling! Remember some years back when the big concern was the onset of another ice age? The earth goes through natural cycles of climate change. Let's be sensable about our approach - clean coal burning, more effecient automobiles and use of natural gas. Wind, solar and ethenol are an economic joke!

Change is going to happen whether we like it or not. By many of your logic we could have stopped the tectonic plates from shifting on earth, dinasours from extinction, and preserved the global iceage. We might be able to control the suns volitile output too. I'm all for taking care of our home, the earth. But I'm getting really tired of people being the blame for everything bad and nothing good.

When weather patterns change, there are consequences.

The concern is that we are causing the change and upsetting homeostatic balances.

Me now thinks it not guns causing people to kill people but rather its global warming or climate change.
