I've noticed the opposition to these claims, like the climate itself, is also getting warmer. A few years ago the the denialists would at least submit data, flawed as it may have been, to support their claims. Recently, as more of this data in support of global warming is released, their attacks are on the ideology of supporters or the financial cost associated with mitigation attempts.
This is the first year my strawberry plants (here in SE CT) have remained green into February. Each year I plant a couple more palm trees on my property and the ones from previous years have lived through the winters. I am preparing for what is inevitable and it's not all good as it is with longer growing seasons and warmer USDA zones. I have seen insects flying and crawling outside nearly everyday this winter. I am fortunate to have my property between 90 and 140 ft above sea level on the west bank of the Thames River. Some of my friends who live below 15 ft elevation have moved or are about to do so.
Thanks for the link to the animated map.
