    Excuse me? I am a Danish national and you are mistaken. "Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate" is the correct translation.

    How much research did you put into that statement? Are you sure you are right about the other countries?

    And America retains her firm grip on sanity. Need you any more evidence that America is the greatest country in the world?

    OK. I should have said "referenced in" and not "referenced as" the formal title.

    Changes in climate were over thousands of years, not hundreds of years.

    With three strong hurricanes, wildfires, hail, flooding, tornadoes and drought, the USA tallied a record high bill last year for weather disasters: $306 billion.

    The US had 16 disasters last year with damage exceeding a billion dollars, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Monday.

    That ties 2011 for the number of billion dollar disaters but the total cost blew past the previous record of $2015 billion in 2005.

    Costs are adjusted for inflation and NOAA keeps track of billion dollar weather disasters going back to 1980.

    "While we have to be careful about knee-jerk cause-effect discussions, (many scientific studies) show that some of today's extremes have climate change fingerprints on them," said University of Georgia meteorology professor Marshall Shepherd, a past president of the American Meteorological Society.

    The increase in billion-dollar weather disasters is likely a combination of more flooding, heat and storm surge from climate change along with other non-climate changes, such as where buildings are put, where people move and how valuable their property is, said Deke Arndt, NOAA's climate monitoring chief.

    The weather agency also said that 2017 was the third hottest year in U.S. records for the Lower 48 states with an annual temperature of 54.6 degrees (12.6 degrees Celsius) 2.6 degrees warmer than the 20th century average . Only 2012 and 2016 were warmer. The five warmest years for the Lower 48 states have all happened since 2006.


    Arndt said the U.S. which has had above normal annual temperatures for 21 straight years is showing the same warming effects as the rest of the world. The burning of coal, oil and gas emits heat-trapping gases that change Earth's climate.
    This was the third straight year that all 50 states had above average temperatures for the year.
    Five states Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and New Mexico had their warmest year ever.
    Temperature records go back to 1895.

    Still, it's constantly changing. No one really knows how fast or slow thousands of years ago. This could be the norm for the planet.

    Or you could be in denial?

    "Arndt said the U.S. which has had above normal annual temperatures for 21 straight years "
