    It's called seasons.
    On a wider note, it is a natural cycle of the Sun.

    I defer to the 98% of Climate scientists who do believe it's happening.

    And I have to laugh at the conservative's non-scientifc defense. And that is the idea that because the planet warmed roughly 5 million years ago the fact that it's doing it again guarantees that this it is doing it for the same reason(s)--meaning it's purely cyclical. Pfffft!

    Lastly, to the naysayers who claim to be worried about such things as leaving the national debt to their grandchildren, funny that they're not it the least worried about the planet being uninhabitable? If the scientists are right then you won't need to worry about the debt being paid by your grandchildren.

    To them I ask, "What if you're wrong?"

    Bit of a strange question, "Do you accept climate change?"
    While the US is burning up Northern Europe is drowning! The Jet Stream has drifted south and that's what's caused this episode.

    "Climate Change" was a term used by the Bush administration as it sounds less threatening than "Global Warming". The climate always changes but I do believe that our activities are having an effect ... more heat, more energy, more extreme weather.

    The scientific evidence for human caused global climate change is overwhelming. One heatwave, even one as extensive and severe as this one, is not proof, but the overall preponderance of evidence in undeniable.

    Only a fool, the ignorant or Republicans believe that 3 billion people on this planet will cause some type of harm to the climate.

    The earth has gone through warming and cooling periods before. Climatologists say the extreme weather in 2011 and 2012 is just the beginning, that such weather will continue. Few people know much about that science, but it appears there are preparations we could and should take. That would depend on Congress in many respects so expect nothing.

    Regardless of the actual cause of the current climate shift, it is happening whether you believe it is induced by human activity, accentuated by human activity or a natural occurrence. We will have to learn how to adapt. It really that simple.

    Climate change is a natural process, it is not the fault of capitalism.

    Climate change is a fact that has been repeating itself for Billions of years.
    Some areas of the Earth are affected more than others and in many different ways.

    Where the conversation departs from reality is pointing to specific cherry-picked 'data' and manipulating it to support an unsubstantiated theory that 'man' has any impact whatsoever on weather, climate, or can control them on a global scale.

    since a lot of the high temps this past few weeks were recorded as being less than over 100 yrs ago,why would anyone think it was anything more than cyclical?

    Since Earth was formed, the climate has been changing.

    Deal with it.

    If you believe humans have an effect, give up all your worldly belongings, because they are all part of the problem you profess.

    Live under the stars, naked.

    I believe climate / weather constantly change, with the Sun (and occasional geothermal outbursts like volcanic activity) as a major heat source. The recent discovery of buried land around GB is evidence of rising seas thousands of years before the first SUV drove the land.

    But you should not accept climate changed based purely on your own limited local experience with the weather, because such a basis is fallacious.
    You should accept climate change based on the vast body of scientific evidence collected all over the world over decades.
