Too hot to handle

I live in the northern United States, where the average temperature for January 6 is 16° F.

Today it's 61°.

I'm worried.

I live just outside DC. Temps here are usually much lower. Today it's 70. The cherry blossom trees are covered in pink! I'm worried too. I watched "An Inconvenient Truth" last weekend and can't get it out of my head. Scary.

I live on Prince Edward Island on Canada's east coast. Normal for us for today: Max -3 Celsius (26.6F), Min -12 Celsius (10.4F). Today's temperature: +11 Celsius (51.8).

I don't worry that much about global warming because I don't believe we have enough oil to keep it going. We're probably soon to pass or have already passed peak oil production. That will be a difficult problem to solve. At this point the only country somewhat prepared for that is probably Brazil.

I am a bit worried too, though I have not seen the movie. I try not to think about it and just enjoy the warm temperatures we are having.

We are all thinking the same thing. How can we not? It is so warm in Toronto, that Adam is wearing his fall jacket. In January when it's usually anywhere between -5 and -20 celsius. While I love the weather, (I hate the cold), I worry a lot about global warming. I keep telling my husband to watch An Inconvient Truth.

I haven't watched the movie yet. I'm sort of avoiding it because I'm sure I'll find it too disturbing, and then what? It was 70 today and was supposed to be the first night of the kids' ski club. Needless to say, with no snow able to be maintained, it was cancelled. This is crazy.

I'm worried too. I live in NY too. On Long Island actually. I am afraid that my house may be under water someday soon! And what's up with the devastating hurricanes, tsunamis, meteorites.....I love how all the weather forecasters on the news just laugh it off. Freaks me out! Maybe I shouldn't have watched that "Day After Tomorrow" movie. At least that was fiction. I can't get myself to see the Al Gore movie yet.

Weird, isn't it?! It's in the 40s and even close to the 50s here in north-eastern Wisconsin.

We have had pleasantly warm temperatures here. Still winter, but warmer than usual. Tonight, we are bracing for a storm. Winds up to 80mph and 10" of snow. Now, I am worried.

Aww, don't fret. Your cold winter weather wasn't gone. It was just lost-- it got hitched on the Northwest Coast for a few weeks. We had record breaking snowfall and flooding and horrific windstorms and power outages and deaths and my family was marooned with no power, heat or running water for more than 3 days. Our average temperature for that week is in the high 30s to low 40s... It stayed below 20 day and night for the whole time, which is almost unheard of out here at all, let alone in November. *grin*
