If you had asked me a month ago, I'd say it is serious.
But last night we just had our first freeze of the season so it aint serious at all now.

We got a serious problem with global drying now. We need some rain.

Global warming? How about hot flashes?? That's more important.

Kinda sorta doesn't really matter. If the temp is going up, globally, it's a natural event, and nothing we can do about it. The good news is, humans are exceedingly adaptable (at least conservatives are) and we will make do.

How about "Could be serious"?

That is because it's being used as an excuse for big government. (Algore for president, anyone?)

The supposed dangers change from generation to generation, but the solution is always the same. That ought to be clue enough as to what this is all about.

Even if it is real and serious, we have no control over the sun so what difference does it make?

2) The windchill now (11am) in Milwaukee is 8 degrees.

A better question would be "are greenhouses gases significantly contributing to global warming?" Cuz if the earth is gonna warm up on her own, as she has done many times before, there is not a dang thing we can do about it. If, on the other hand, the warming is man caused then we might be able to do something about it.

I don't think greenhouses gases are contributing significantly to any global warming, that is just a liberal fantasy to spread socialism around the world.

Didn't have non-existant. We're experiencing such severe "global warming" here in Madison, that I had to dig out my winter parka yesterday. Brr!

I believe that it is a cycle - don't know how long of a cycle but a cycle none-the-less. 100 years or a million - who knows.

Flip flops, flower shirt, margarita and cheeseburger - along with some Jimmy Buffet tunes......

What if the laundry crevasse and the global warming crevasse are one and the same? Won't that mean, on our way down, we'll pass a penguin wearing those dress socks?
I mean, could be a phenomenon of the parallel universe!

;P

Bogus poll question that assumes the fact to be established. How serious of a problem do you consider UFO abductions to be?

Global whining is much more of a serious threat than global warming.

Al Gore is a much bigger problem than global warming. At least when your light globes get too warm you can shut then off. Shutting off Al Gore is a whole different task.

It seems to me that it is Very serious even though it is non existent. The reason being is that Al Gore gets to charge 20k per speech to talk about it which then makes the news and I have to look at him.

In about 1100 AD, there was a long period of global warming that eliminated such cultures as that of the Anasazis. Those people simply could not stop driving their SUVs!

You have been pinged because of your interest in environmentalism, alarmist wackos, mainstream media doomsday hype, and other issues pertaining to global warming. Freep-mail me to get on or off.

But don't you know that global warming causes global cooling.

Remember this piece of agenda driven propaganda.
