What do they mean by "Will become a problem"? It IS a problem and these people who recognize it not are in trouble.

Well I tried to vote. YES, global warming is a problem. It's already happening.

A study by the Pentagon and the Center for Naval Analysis stated that the greatest threat to national security in the near future will not be WMDs in other countries but climate change.

Keep sticking you head in the sand, people. It's coming and this is no "Chicken Little" proclamation.

If you mean to suggest we should all pollute less, then yes. But we are all polluters and if we don't listen to ourselves, who shall we listen to?

"Will become?" You're a little late.

The late Mr. Catfish of my nearly vanished pond thought it was a helluva problem.

Yet another stupidly worded poll with bogus software.

Do you think global warming will soon become a serious problem?

Or do you think global warming is a problem. Well , YES to the second question and that pretty much makes the first one a stupid question.

I've never complained about a poll before for being stupid, but this one is seriously stupid.

But it's in vogue now to be stupid---and believe what one wants to believe rather than what scientific research points to, so I guess we're with the flow.

Ponzi, schmonzi. Firstly, the supposed bombshell is about the first few years of model projections, and these are even draft reports of something that will not even be finalized until Sept. 2013. Secondly, the entire draft report is chock full of hard data showing the reality of increased global temps, rising sea levels, shrinking ice and snowcover, increased acidification, etc. And you call that a bombshell????

Hi all. Looks as if we had it expiring as soon as it went up. So sorry! You can vote now.

I am more concerned about deforestation and marine dead zones than global warming.

Why would we want to vote in a stupidly worded poll? To vote yes means it is not a problem now. To vote no....

DUH.

Once again, I'll ask. Will someone that knows all about global warming tell me where I can see evidence within a 4 hour drive of Lawrence. I can photoshop away all the glaciers in the world and I can code with fudge factors to tell you it will be 95F in downtown Lawrence tomorrow,

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2217286/Global-warming-stopped-16-years-ago-reveals-Met-Office-report-quietly-released--chart-prove-it.html British report shows global warming ended 16 years ago. Hysteria aside, the temperature goes up some years and down in others. No big deal. It's laughable that the sun is not taken into account in any of the models.

My highest months electric bill this year was $85 for August. People paying $200-$250 electric bills for the same month were amazed. Those same people haven't done a thing to reduce their electricity usage. I've even offered to help. Those same people, complain about their paychecks. I don't get it.
People drive vehicles getting 15mpg and complain about their low wages. People complaining about low wages, bring three children into the world. Overweight thirtysomethings who mow their 1/3 acre with a riding mower, are distraught of not being able to lose weight.
I'm cool with passions running over good reasoning for a time but eventually....come on......

Will soon become? How about already is?

global warming is armadilloes and tarantulas moving north into Kansas because it's warmer. My wife and I were near Pawhuska, Oklahoma last spring on HWY 99 and we saw a tarantula crossing the highway that was big enough I could see it from 75 feet away. Didn't they used to live in Texas, NM, and Arizona?
