Climate numbers tell a story

Toledo Blade: The first nine months of 2012 were the warmest on record for the United States as a whole. Toledo’s first nine months were its warmest in 58 years. They were the warmest in 74 years in Cleveland, in 65 years in Columbus and Cincinnati, and in 54 years in Detroit.

Anecdotal or not, these and other records assembled by the National Climatic Data Center add to the overwhelming body of evidence that Earth’s climate is warming. Some of the change is natural; some is man-made. Plenty of symptoms — from last week’s superstorm Sandy to record Arctic ice melts to America’s worst drought in a half-century — suggest the need for a global response.

Continued indifference to the issue of climate change is a prescription for failure.

No response is possible without completely destroying civilization on earth, and then there is no guarantee that all of the destruction is going to stop the planet from warming. Learn to adapt!
