Extreme storms, droughts, intense rains, unusual amounts of snow or lack of snow are all signs of global warming. People know the weather is getting less predictable. They call it “weird weather.”
[Odd lack of alarmism at a "clean energy" discussion]
KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Pacific Northwest is not yet suffering greatly from climate change, and it's a leader in producing renewable energy.
Claudio Stöckle, a Washington State University professor, addressed climate change during a panel discussion, "Harvesting Clean Energy 2020: A View to the Future." He said greenhouse gas emissions have been increasing in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution.
"The climate change picture for this region is really not too bad," Stöckle said.
"For our region to move a little more south is not a bad thing," he said, speaking figuratively...

Actually, in the last interglacial period, about 120,000 years ago, the sea levels were about 15-18 feet above present levels. All without the help of more than a few campfires. We are at the trailing edge of the current interglacial.

I say we slap an electronic ankle braclet on this guy and everyone other criminal that comes to the defense of AGW scam at this point.

Fraudulently inciting public panic in fact meets the current definition of TERRORISM!!!
