It's getting warm

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

So I guess these don't count:

And yet they say Sandy caused some USD 79 billion worth of damages... :|

Irma might make up for the delay. Less storms, but more powerful?

No they don't, they weren't classified as major hurricanes.

The climate alarmists predicted an increase in major hurricanes, but that's not what we're seeing.

Big time record breaking temperatures in these early September days in Vancouver.
I've gotta invent a system for storing it for the winter when the cheap natural gas consumption goes way up in volume
and the "Carbon Tax" on it, :evil: , puts you in the poor house

What we are seeing is greater property value destroyed, that is economics not climate science.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

35C here at home today.

Climate change probably won't affect the number of hurricanes, but it almost certainly will affect their intensity, as the warmer the ocean is, the fiercer the hurricane becomes. They feed off the energy stored in the ocean.

This, combined with the rising sea levels, will probably render Florida inhospitable within the next few decades.

I would strongly recommend against investing in Floridian beach property. :|

Makes you wonder why the republicans are still in denial, eh? :|

But I guess Big Oil and Big Coal have spent a fortune trying to muddy the water...
