So they've been tracking data for a while now. I dunno, 50 years, 100 years? All these records we're breaking this year and last year... just coincidence? Insufficient sample size from our history/log? Or can we finally agree that there is some climate change going on.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

It's difficult to get to the truth


There are so many perspectives at both ends of the spectrum and everyone's got an agenda it seems but I think a lot of the earth's anger is caused by us with drilling and poking holes and moving water etc..., I did some research one day out of curiosity and found a list of temperature records dating back many years, I also looked at where they were building dams throughout the U.S. and every one I checked hit record temperatures in the area when the Dams began to block the flow of water, I don't know if that's coincidence or not I was just curious....


But with this, they knew there was a great deal of snow fall up river a while ago and should have increased flows much earlier, I think this could have been less bad


and the shake your head news of the day, not sure if true it's posted at zero hedge but ....Really?????

In my opinion totally inadequate tracking, and of course there is climate changing going on. Why is this a surprise.

If one looks at geological history, it has been relatively quiet and climate has been fairly stable for the last 1400 years. But when looks at the history, climate has been all over the place. Sure it's warming, we still are actually coming out of the last ice age. So naturally glaciers will melt.

I had to laugh a couple of years ago, when there was some previously unseen event on the sun. One astronomer that this was very rare and would probably never happen again. Kind of a silly statement when you consider we might have what, several hundred years of observing the sun which is around, at least 5 billion years old. Duh.

Bear in mind that we set records for cold temps too. The climate is always changing, the question is if man is causing it and if so what if anything could be done about it. From my understanding even if we are contributing to some kind of change there's nothing we can do that would make any measurable difference to counteract it. Al Gore would put us back in the stone age and nothing he suggests would accomplish anything except impoverish us (and enrich him). Anyway we need global warming to evaporate all that water..he he he

Cold, Hot, tornados, hurricanes -- all climate change. I've seen some strange weather in recent years, stuff I never recall seeing. Now I am young, but when my grandma says she's never seen anything like this, it makes you realize it's unusual.
