      Is something confusing you? It's snowing in October, but it's been much worse. Halloween has been cancelled due to blizzards.

    I remember no snow on Christmas at times.

      You also are not really from where you are currently living. What state were you born in? I am in a city where there is lake effect warming, plus as the city groans in numbers the city doesn’t get snow while just 15 minutes outside it is covered in snow.

    I think Global Warming refers to the overall temperature of the Earth. I had a teacher in school who said they should call it Global Weirding, he made the nuanced point that the local temperatures wouldn't just become hotter, rather they would become more extreme and unpredictable. The phrase Global Warming probably should have been reserved for Climatologists and Scientists, it seems like somewhat of a misnomer to the layperson, I believe that's why it's been reframed as Climate Change. But for all I know, maybe in prior generations or other places, Global Warming was being taught as a perpetual warming of all local climates. I pretty much just know what I was taught.

    Also, there's the other misconception that Climate Change deniers like to mention regarding 12 years or some fairly immediate timeframe where the planet will be unlivable. Maybe that idea was promoted by politicians or activists with an agenda but I don't believe that claim has ever been made by scientists actually researching the stuff, and still the overwhelming majority of scientists ascribe to manmade Global Warming.

      Yeah, sometimes. I've been here my whole life and neither snow in October or no snow in December are unheard of. But it wasn't always like that. It started snowing heavily in October in the early nineties. And now we don't get autumn at all.

        Yeah, I had sarcasm in the OP. I actually personally would benefit from the whole world getting a lot warmer. But I am not a climate change denier

          Hard to tell tone through text, the topic has been politicized and I think it's probably the conflicting influences more than the actual conclusions which have shaped the debate on both sides.

              Back in high school, I remember being told that global warming could result in hotter temperatures, or cooler temperatures depending on precipitation rates. So whether or not the temperatures rise or fall, it's global warming, and it's all your fault for being a consumer!

              Meh, I'm not worried about it. Al Gore said we'd have no arctic ice by 2015. It's hard to take these people seriously anymore.

              If I get jailed for being a climate change skeptic, then so be it. This is the hill I'm willing to die on.

                I think you may overestimate your own importance. Nobody wants to jail you for your opinion because nobody with any power cares what your opinion is.
