    Here are the facts that we know to be true! 68 people are dead in Asia because of exposure to unusually cold temperatures and the E. Coast is having the worst snow storm in 100 years. There are theories that the planet is warming because of CO2 but no proof. I have seen data (google it) where it has been documented that temperatures have not increased to any measurable degree in 10 years because of changes in solar activity. The problem with science is that it is always fleeting. Everything we think we "know" about science, including climate science, will eventually be proven to be either completely wrong or at least very incomplete. As our grandparent's science is to us, so will our science be to our grandchildren. In the midst of all the theories, we have 68 dead people from exposure to cold and some very miserble people snow bound in a "warming climate". Go figure!

    Climate skeptics struggle to associate high amplitude jet stream oscillations with unusual weather events.
    Sen. Inhofe displayed his ignorance of this all too well.

    RE: Thid
    What is this 'solar cooling cycle' that you speak of? What metric is used to measure it?
    Everything referenced by accepted databases (NOAA, NASA) shows the vast majority of the warmest years recorded have been recent, with 2015 being the hottest by a relatively large .13C margin.
    You are entitled to your own opinions, not your own facts.

    Thid, yet 2015 was the hottest year on record. Indisputably.

    Our planet has entered into a solar cooling cycle as the earth is experiencing unusual cold in Asia and in the east coast's 100 year record snow storm. Some scientists noticed the warming trend ended over 10 years ago and predicted this cooling would happen due to solar changes, not mankind's changes. Obama and the eco-terroists got it wrong. These cooling and warming cycles have always occurred and now we are experiencing the a real climate change cycle and CO2 has nothing to do with these natural climate cooling and warming cycles. Taxing carbon was a scam. People are dying from the cold.
