Climate Common Sense is not a sceptical site but a non-believer's site .Global warming and cooling are natural phenomena and carbon dioxide is a lovely gas vital to plant growth. Global Warming has stopped and Climate Change ( I call it Weather) is the new manufactured bogeyman. This website will present a realist view on the Climate Change debate.

And it is not officially winter yet.
Hardy Illinois Jogger
In the US there is a harbinger of another freezing winter with icy weather widespread at the end of fall.
While the official start to winter is still days away, Dec. 21, 2013, the cold, icy and snowy weather across most of the United States would indicate otherwise.
A series of storms this fall blanketed parts of the Northeast and Midwest in snow, ice-covered areas and knocked out power to thousands from Texas to Kentucky and bitter cold froze parts of the northern Plains.
Snow totals in some areas have already surpassed last season's totals. Philadelphia has already received 10.8 inches of snow this fall, 8.6 inches of that snow from last weekend's snowstorm. This means the city has received 2.5 inches of additional snow so far this season compared to all of last winter.
Of course the twits from the AGW twittery will claim that this is just another manifestation of global warming
Meanwhile in Connecticut it is too cold to salt the roads as even the brine will freeze. A huge snow and ice storm is heading for the North East of the US and could bring 8 inches of snow to New York.
