"Short term weather patterns can trump multiple-year trends"? Good point...short term weather patterns are the foundation of global warming/climate change advocacy.

re:"......short term weather patterns are the foundation of global warming/climate change advocacy..."........This statement is the exact opposite of the truth. The science behind the universal scientific consensus that global temperature is increasing is based on direct observations going back over 150 years and other measurements going back hundreds of thousands of years. Even though North America is having an "old fashioned" cold winter, 2013 was one of the warmest years, globally, on the modern record. That trend will continue regardless of what the Great Lakes do in January.

mnbusdr, I agree. Just because we are having a winter which is actually in the statistical norm, even though it seems as though it is unusual, it is not. It is a speck on the long term trend, which clearly shows increasing temps globally.

Well said Waterbunke. I would like to add money/taxes and authoritarian control of all aspects of life is the end game of global warming/climate change.

"""The science behind the universal scientific consensus that global temperature is increasing is based on direct observations going back over 150 years""".....This statement is the exact opposite of the truth. There is no scientific consensus, not even close. The AGW'ers simply label the tens of thousands dissenting scientists as "who?" and the idea of static temperature stations for 150 years is beyond laughable. Stations have changed, the areas around stations have changed, and the technology for measuring temperatures has been continually changing. As always, it ends in the lame, "I know we're freezing, but it's been warmer somewhere else......." Mini-ice age, it IS coming.

I see Obama is going to California to push Climate change. I wonder if he could stop by the Lakes and drop some hot air on the surface.

In the 70's it was global cooling and scientists supported it, in the 90 and 2000's it was global warming and scientists supported it, now it is climate change and scientists support it. Guess what, genius's, it been climate change since the beginning of time and it will continue to be climate change for infinity until the sun decides to burn out. Dinosaurs did not die out because of the carbon footprint!

Lakes freezing over in the middle of winter. Tell us again why this is news?

universal scientific consensus------ there is no universal scientific consensus.

IOPScience, a science publishing company, did a survey of climate science journal articles from 1991 through 2011. They found that 97% of the articles on climate change support the theory that human-caused climate change is happening. If that is not consensus I don't know what is. As for goferfanz's ludicrous claim that there are tens of thousands of dissenting scientists, how about you back that up with some evidence??
