Global Cooling ?

Some folks just cannot resist the urge to debate current issues of the day...here's the place to satisfy your craving. BE FOREWARNED - if you are an intellectual lightweight, you might find it a bit rough in here. This place is kinda like a never-ending edition of the McLaughlin Group. (Whatever happened to Mort Zuckerman, anyway?)

Global Cooling ?

April on track to be the coldest in 143 years

Oh, I forgot. Now that people see the warming thing for the scam it is, it's "climate change."

It always has been "Climate change" had you been paying attention. Extremes in what are considered the norms. Extra hot summers, extra cold winters, more intense storms, higher than normal seasonal rains.

Whatever Bryce, I spent the day relaxing at the pool in Arizona. Bailing out in a few weeks because of the extra hot summers they've been having lately. Go lick a frozen flag pole for me will ya' buddy?

This is kinda like how the air in the kitchen cools down for a bit by a small amount because you open the freezer door to grab something from the very back of it.

Or, if you understand fluid dynamics, it's kinda like squeezing one end of a water balloon: most of that water bulges to the other side(s). In our case, the water in that balloon is the cold air around the polar regions of our planet, and the squeeze is the warmer temperate and tropical air surging northward. While New York City is getting record cold (and the media is focusing on that, by saying "lol global warming"), they completely ignored the massive broken records in Anchorage and Fairbanks (Alaska), which were seeing temperatures as much as 60 F above normal. That's *not* normal.

But... even IF we're not partly or even fully to blame for global warming, it's still a good idea to cut emissions and clean up pollution.

I heard coastlines are changing as well as sea levels. We must do something about this before all the continents crash together like in this climate model:

(I'm not sure who made the video, but I think "pangea" means climate change in Italian or Mexican.)

* The Earth has undergone nearly constant climate change. Michigan has been under a mile of ice....it's been an ocean. We are in a constant state of flux

* We have kept temp records for perhaps 200 years....accurate ones for less than 100. We have no freaking idea what is normal.

* Core samples show evidence of dynamic change.

* Extra terrestrial impact events, volcanic events like Pinatuba and the 3rd (or is the fourth?) yet to come eruption of Yellowstone, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and the increasing disrespect of man for other men will wipe us out long before "climate change" we think we are causing. There have been 4 extinction events that we know of, and many large impacts with space objects. We are just in a "sunny summer afternoon" of life on an otherwise turbulent Earth.

However, Ringtail's comment is correct and quite inspired. It makes sense to act wisely. We are fools to think that we can control the changes going on by burning less or more carbon. We are further fools to think we can dramatically change in anything short of several generations. I laugh at the "green" people with electric cars on Maui, and the millions spent on silly charging stations to support them. The cars are essentially being powered by the diesel fuel running Maui Electric's gas turbines and reciprocating diesels. Solar will help run your house, so will wind power....neither are suitable for practical mobile use like driving to Chicago and back in a day.

That said, it is always wise to cut emissions as much as possible and pollute as little as possible.

No small amount of lung cancer patients are surprised they’ve developed the disease - as they never smoked nor were living in a family where they were breathing second hand smoke from an addicted parent.

There are other terminal lung diseases as well which are on the rise.

It is indeed a good idea to clean the air as much as possible - no matter how much it cuts into the profits of certain companies.
