    From Stanford University?

    We're already seeing more extremes of weather, just as predicted. The 10 times figure may or may not be accurate, as the question still is being debated as to how much warming is natural and how much is human caused. Some of the models tell us that there should be a natural cooling trend just now.

    The problem with the uncertainties is that the non scientists see it as proof that AGW is a hoax.

    Maybe perpetrated by China. That's what the president says anyway.

    3 years in a row, hottest year on earth...But no worries that cant effect ice right?

    Ice larger so its cold! 100 feet of ice melts and is now 70 feet tall, but wider is not growing.
