In northern Alberta right now, there are devastating forest fires and Slave Lake is burning like never before. Who would ever think that there would be forest fires in Alberta in the middle of May while snow keeps falling in Yosemite? In my opinion, it's global warming.

No, it is not. It is weather and it always changes. It might be warming, it might not. The earth has been much warmer than this and it has been much cooler.
