Global warming sucks. The heat is sapping my diet motivation and willpower. My willpower leaves my body along with my sweat. Really must do something to reduce pollution....

Is global warming really making it hot or is it just summer??? Was there a time when summers weren't this hot?

The hottest in 400 years

"Weighing in on the highest profile debate about global warming, the nation's premier science policy body on Thursday voiced a "high level of confidence" that Earth is the hottest it has been in at least 400 years, and possibly even the last 2,000 years. "

I'm sure global warming is real, but I also know that we go through cycles of having hot summers (particularly here in the South). I remember summers in my childhood where we had multiple days of 100-degree-plus weather, and we haven't had that very much in the last decade.

So I think it's a combination of things - global warming plus the cyclical nature of weather patterns.

in our area - yes it is hot now but in a short period of time we will be complaining about all the cold and snow. we need to take pleasure in all the seasons, good and bad.

didn't global warming happen thousands of years ago when the polar ice caps melted? it was called the end of an ice age. and why is it news that it gets hot in the summer? this is not news. there will be some breaking news story 6 months from now that it's cold in the winter. duh! i should have gone into journalism.

Well, global warming may be cyclical as well, but over millenia rather than decades. And the polar ice caps did not melt at the end of the ice Age -they're still there (although they appear to be getting smaller).

The question is not really whether global warming exists (it does), but how much human beings contribute to it, and what the long term effect will be on life on this planet. Is our current hot summer (hotter than the last few but certainly not the hottest on record) the result of global warming, or is it just part of an overall change in weather patterns? I don't know.

Global warming is occurring. It is debatable as to whether humans are causing it entirely, partially, or not at all. There's another thread on that.

However, the global warming that's being discussed as the possible reason behind the excess hurricanes, and the ice caps melting, etc., is an average warming of an amount that is far less than 1 degree over many many years. It is not talking about an increase by several degrees (or tens of degrees) in any one year or season.

It is icky hot out, but this is not the effect of global warming, just that of an unpleasant summer. It's happened before, and it'll happen again.

I'm in Chicago, and two summers ago, I was in Milwaukee, and the entire month of June didn't break 70* outside. People complained just as much!
