And when we recently saw snow in India, how can anyone take a 6oC *rise* seriously.
Seeing how Himalaya (parts of it, anyway) is in India, I fail to see much shocking in this.
Some places are getting hotter, some are getting colder, nature will adjust itself as always.
Indeed. And that means that previously fertile areas will dry out as climate patterns shift, infrastructure designed for warm/cold climate will become unsuitable for the new conditions, and coastal areas - which are the most heavily-populated pretty much everywhere - flood as the sea level rises due to melting icecaps and expanding (heat expansion) water.
It's not that global warming spells the end of our planet, biosphere, human race or even human civilization; in fact we could even conceivably end up benefiting in the long run. It's simply that the cleanup required to adapt our societies to their new surroundings will be massive, and that makes them expensive. And of course the societies which can't perform them fast enough due to political or resource issues will end up having massive problems, possibly leading to mass deaths and major wars.
