Re: eWoodShop - Mission Bar Stool - Final glue-up

Page 1 of 2  
Weather finally got right to finish these bar stools ... simply been too cold the past few weeks to do a critical glue-up in the shop.
74F and last two now sitting in clamps, as we speak:

I had to run an errand today, in the afternoon. I started up the windshield wipers to clear a little frost. A big chunk of ice clung to the wiper blades and crashed into the bottom of each stroke. It went squeak, squeak, CRASH! It did that a number of times till the ice broke off. It sure as hell wasn't 74 degrees here today!
Bar stools look nice.

It is 40F outside my window as this is typed.
Expected to drop into the mid 30's over night here and in the downtown area.
Forecast to be as low as 5F in the mountains.
The fruit crops are still hanging on the trees and are in jeopardy.
28F for a few hours and the crops are history.
THIS SUCKS!!!!

Warming, it's 19 F this morning. I don't buy into the Global Warming panic as the climate has always warmed and cooled. On the other hand most animals don't soil where they sleep. I think we should be better stewards of our enviorment.

And those that believe that are actually gullible enough to believe that the earth should not be warming. Since when is global cooling better for food production? Think the farmers care when their crops freeze?

It's not that global warming exists, it's the rate that it's happening and the rate of increase caused by humanity.

Well, people like Al Gore notwithstanding, I am of the opinion that man makes a significant contribution to this warming of the earth.
Now, if you want to argue the existence of man makes it inevitable that warming will occur, then there's not much I can offer in rebuttal.
Like the other creatures on this planet, man is simply a creation of nature. However, unlike the other creatures on this planet, we have the realization of what we're doing and quite possibly the knowledge to change what we're doing.
Whether we let our dominant species attitude get in the way of changing our global warming actions or not is something else entirely. Personally, as species, I think we're too arrogant for most of us to make a constructive change in how we treat this planet.

Milankovitch cycles.
There's little doubt that the planet has warmed in the past 100 years. It is the magnitude of the warming and the cause of the warming that disputed. There is little reliable data prior to 1900 for surface and sea-surface temperatures. There is little data prior to 1970 regarding sea-ice extent and area.
As for Han's 20-foot seawalls in Houston, one must realize that even were 100% of the sea ice (e.g. arctic ice) to melt, sea-level wouldn't change. For sea-level to rise substantially, glacial ice and landborne ice (e.g. the Greenland and Antarctica ice caps) would need to melt. The best estimates are that the Antarctica ice cap would take several thousand years to melt completely at a much higher temperature that even the IPCC predicts for the next hundred years or so (and their predictions have been much higher than has actually been observed since the first and second IPCC reports).
Sea level is a function of the temperature of the water (water expands as it warms), isostatic rebound (much shoreline is still rebounding from the ice cover in the last ice age), wind/currents (sea level is higher on windward side than leeward side), fresh-water influx, glacial melting et alia.

That is all correct, but no one knows whether warming will reach an equilibrium, whether it will continue to warm at the present rate, or whether the rate of warming will keep increasing. There are good reasons to believe the latter (temp going up faster and faster) if we don't do something. In fact there is likely something we could do to cool things, but that is without precedent, and affecting weather globally by a single or a few national (?) entities will really rile up people. I am referring to proposed attempts to cool the atmosphere by injecting screens of some sort into the stratosphere, as mother nature has done with volcanic eruptions (look up little ice age and Krakatao).

I'm not talking about regular cycles of heating and cooling over thousands of years. I'm talking about the current act ivies of man that seem to mirror present day global warming.
Sure, you might want to suggest that it's just another global heating cycle attributable to nature and has little to do with man, but what if you're wrong?
The trends we're seeing right now are more severe than they have been in the past. Are you prepared to just sit there and say "Nah, there's no way man could be causing it."?
I *know* you're smarter than that.

An understatement, though I'm partial to the style.
