Anecdotal evidence just doesn't count. For example," When I was young I went fishing and I caught this 10 footer and nowadays the only fish I catch are 3 foot long" would not suffice as evidence for fish being smaller in general today, no matter how many times you would hear that on the news. It could be that you are seeing a warming trend in your neighbourhood, it still does not necesarilly have to do with global warming.
That is why we have statistics and science. However, you can prove most things by statistics. Also, know that 1000 scientific reports can be disproven by one single report stating the oposite. This is not a democratic business.
My own take on this is that I am not sure. I believe that MSM tends to be very alarmistic, and that there are political reasons to endorse global warming. Those two reasons are big enough to remain sceptic.
