    Typical scaremongering:
    “this might be the start of increasingly warmer summers for years to come.”

    Environmentalists see only evidence they want to see, and never consider that evidence they jump to might have a different explanation. When a scare opportunity presents itself… they predict endless worsening and doom. NO, this will not go on for years to come!

    Ever hear of solar output cycles and
    sunspot cycles? Sheesh!

    There is one caveat. Since recent centuries have been colder than all but two other periods in the last 600 million years, it is possible that the earth will return to more normal temperatures. About 5 degrees Celsius warmer. If there were more CO2 in the atmosphere, the combination would dramatically increase plant growth… as it once was in the Jurassic period.

    Environmentalist policies draw the exact opposite conclusion from what they should.

    Yea, and over here in Lithuania, it’s a storm one minute, and boiling hot the second. I don’t remember anything like that happening at any previous points in time here.

    Well, at least we can now go all Tim the Enchanter and say “I warned you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you knew it all, didn’t you? Oh, it’s just a harmless little bunny, isn’t it? Well, it’s always the same. I always tell them–” and perhaps people will finally start taking climate change seriously.
