    The more I research the theories on Global Warming (or Climate Change) the more I see scientists downplaying the aspects of it, to avoid persecution or ridicule, and more alarmingly, to avoid panic lol

    As I understand it Bangkok is sinking and has been for some time. Many of the sidewalks there are elevated a foot above street level due to continual flooding. Built on swamp land I believe.

    Except for one short burst of typical weather our winter has been unusually dry and warm. But in and of itself that tells us little when it comes to climate change. The cold weather in Europe taken in isolation tells us little as well.

    Global warming manmade or not is going to produce losers and winners. Bangkok looks to like it could come out on the losing end. The Saharan region has showed significant greening due to increased rainfall since 1982 and is predicted based on climate modeling will be able to support intensive agriculture within the next few decades.
