This site is called swell info so i would suggest sticking to things that you know and understand, the facts. The water is cold here and it is hot in the southern hemi. Just because FOX news says global warming is false does not make you a expert on the subject. Recongnize that you are a victim of propaganda and leave science to people with mutiple letters after their name.
I'm not trying to argue for or against anything here.
By the way, maybe you should heed your own advise. What, because you (barrels4liam) come on to a surf forum and type a few sentences, we are supposed to take those a facts and proven science?
Not picking sides, since I don't really know much about this... BUT a professor I had at Old Dominion U. believed the earth is beginning to enter a cooling phase and that global warming is a natural phenomenon...
I actually don't watch FOX or any other major news media. Everyone is brainwashed by the major networks. Just believe your Fuhrer and everything govt/media tells you. They never lie! You see all the media stations as well as politicians are on the same team. FOX = CNN, Republican = Democract. People actually believe they are different. They all love war, lining their pockets, taking away liberty/freedom in the name of security, and taking your money. All of have commited crimes and should be prosecuted. We would all be in jail for the same crimes especially killing over 2 million soldiers and innocent civilians.
I'm for the environment and keeping our oceans clean. I work in Marine Biology and I'm probably more qualified then you. I've met and talked with several scientists. The overwhelming number of scientists state that climate change is a hoax. It's just another reason for government to tax. Any guess who's benefiting, Al Gore and Wall Street who will be running cap and trade. If climate change is caused by CO2, lol, companies will still be allowed to pollute as long as they pay. So big corporations can fork out the dough and still pollute, while the average joe will pay for running his AC unit. Wake up and read a book. Please present the science to back up your claim. I've been studing graphs and looking at algorithms regarding temps. All of the scientists I've talked with understand that this is a hoax. The temp is actually cooling which is a problem, it's just not caused by CO2. Follow the money and you will see the light. Ask yourself why oil companies are for cap/trade. Also, ask why the head of the weather channel know it is a hoax and the head of green peace has resigned from his position because of this joke. Wake up and think for yourself.
By the way, I don't really remember the water temp being warm here in January ever, lol.
Whatever you want to call it, HUMAN IMPACT from such things as burning fossil fuels and other forms of improper waste management lead to accelerated, and unnatural fluctuations in temperatures. This means it can get warmer than normal in the summer and winter, and can get colder than normal in the summer and winter. It doesn't mean the whole Earth gets warmer and hotter.
If you think this is just a political scheme then you're just as big of a fool (read as 'tool') as the FOX News watchers who listen to that garbage. I've been studying all of this on my own for the last several years while most of you are just finishing up high school. I believe I have a much more educated opinion than let's say.. NOOBS that come on here and try to spread their weak parental-guided opinion on this forum.
Go pick some trash off your beach - remember it could disappear in your lifetime, so enjoy it while you can.
