    Global Warming!! Plain and simple... and the only person who doesn't believe it unfortunately is your president... I quite like him in many ways , but he's so wrong with this one!!!

    I disagree. Every year, there are fires in California, and things have been pretty calm on the hurricane front as compared to previous years. It is possible that there are more earthquakes but this could be accounted for by fracking or by all of the mysterious underground digging that has been reported but denied officially. I don't know, as I haven't looked into statistics for earthquakes. Our history is filled with floods, as well, which have become perhaps more newsworthy due to the increased number of buildings that are built along waterways, shores, and beaches.

    yes but the quakes, tornadoes, fires' storms, and floods are not just happening in the USA..they're happening worldwide on a scale they've never occurred before...

    I can't speak with certainty on that but I do know that the weather alarmists lie.

    Well I believe that all these intensifying weather conditions are a fulfillment of Bible prophecy and are the "birth pangs" or "beginnings of sorrows" spoken of in Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21, and in the book of Revelation too. Weather conditions as well as evil and violence, etc. will only keep intensifying until the return of Jesus Christ.

    Just today the whole board-walk on the beach closest to my daughter in Spain has been smashed and washed away by the force of the storms. October in that part of Spain is always hot and beautiful calm weather.. but for the last couple of years it's been unpredictable at any time of the year.. 6 months without rain at times also...

    Even in the time that I have been in Maine, I have repeatedly heard about how we've never had snow this early before, or how unusual it is to not have snow on the ground in December, or whatever the weather abnormality might be, and sometimes it seems like that might be the case. Then Facebook will prompt me to view my memories for that day, and I'll find that I had posted pictures of snow on the ground on that same day six years ago, or about how I was wondering if we'd have snow by Christmas eight years ago. Change is what both the weather and the climate does, and that has been the case throughout the history of the planet.

    This is true Ken and unfortunately we can't stop the changes in the weather anymore than we can stop the changes in our aging bodies. :)

    The Washington Post is an agenda-driven publication, global warming being high on its agenda, as a war on global warming takes power out of the hands of voters and elected officials and places it in the hands of the very organizations that have been the drumbeat for it. If global warmists were on target, the earth would have been devoid of life by now.

    Don't you even question statements as to what the "the government" believes. The government directly employs more than two percent of the population of the United States, a number that is probably far exceeded by public-private partnerships, elected officials, and others who may claim to speak for the government.

    "The government" is not sentient, and cannot believe anything. No one can speak for the whole of the government with any credibility whatsoever.

    We don't know what's causing it but we can believe in something. I belong to those who believe that these increasingly extreme weather conditions are caused by global warming which, again, is caused by natural phenomena as well as man-made ones. Natural phenomena are not new. What's new are the man-made ones. Over here we haven't witnessed an increase in quakes and other natural phenomena like volcanism but there's clearly been an increase in storms, tornadoes, droughts and floodings caused by changes in the atmosphere now containing too much energy which, in part, is due to man-made emissions. The additional man-made input tips the balance in favor of more extreme weather condition which we have never been used to.
    Since neither man nor the atmosphere is likely to change, mankind will just have to wait and see what's gonna happen. I'll be dead anyway when things might get out of control.

    It is possible that we are going into another ice age. Climate always warms prior to an ice age. Atmospheric water is what causes ice ages, not cold, but water vapor is the most abundant greenhouse gas. If we want to stop climate change, we can simply cover the oceans with plastic, then the worlds climate would stabilize....:)
