“Here’s the thing though, Bill,” Payne said. “Ever since Katrina, we heard that the hurricane season is going to be more devastating and it was apocalyptic and the end of the world. And the reality is we haven’t seen that. So, how can Newsweek say this is a new normal? Is this irresponsible or is there any science behind that?”
“Well, there’s a lot more science behind it than saying it’s not,” Nye flatly stated. “But that aside, that’s only six years. In geologic times or in terms of climate events, that’s not very long.”
“The world is getting warmer, everybody. The world is getting warmer… Do we not agree the world is getting warmer?”
“I have no idea,” Payne admitted. “Someone told me it’s one degree in the last hundred years and I’ll take their word for it.”
The Fox Business host then changed the subject to Al Gore’s suggestion that climate change deniers need to be confronted just as racists were confronted during the civil rights movement.

It snowed in Texas.
Summers are getting hotter and winters are getting colder.
Climate change is already evident -_-
If you see me typing in "quotes", that's because I'm remembering what it was like to be a fundie and then typing as if I was one :3 "Please. Understand that I only want to share God's love with you. I mean you no harm, really. You need to stop sinning."

Cold winters disprove global warming! Snow shouldn't exist anymore scientists are dumb.
"Great Britain's two most senior military officers added to the uneasiness. [...] Lord Wolseley, Adjutant General, thought that it might be possible for an enemy to invade without waiters and pastrycooks." -Robert K. Massie, Dreadnought
On a slightly serious note, I love how when there were thunderstorms in Vermont two winters ago, all the nutjobs who used the "it snowed in Texas" line were telling me it didn't prove Global Warming. Rain, regular rain in January, in a state that's typically cold in winter accompanied by nice summer T-Storms, doesn't prove anything.
But the opposite, it seems, still holds true.
