I have to agree. This whole global warming thing isn't living up to its reputation.
I wasn't impressed during the summer and now I'm snapping icicles of my testies, I'm damn well disappointed.
Some where I posted results from Glacier studies in my part of the world. To make it quick, tree rings showed a warming period of about 90 years from 1650 -1740 AD That was not man made.
Now the more recent data, for my area shows from 1966-2000 galciers had receeded.
By 2003 they were heading back the opposite way. Now, from a REDNECK view. I have Lodge Pole Pine on my property. 8 years of drought has brought on a horrible infestation of pine beetles. COLD and water helps trees kill them. My past 2 summers have been cold and wet, you can see the pine beetle larva getting sapped out, from now healthy trees.
AND I can see glaciers where the rocks were once exposed.
Slow down on cap and trade, but by all means continue an effort to convert to green energy,, ASAP.
