The climate has been changing the past 10,000 years. Something rarely
alluded to in the "debate". We're still coming out of that ice-age.
Even within this period there have been variations, and anomalies.
There's some fascinating archaeological evidence within the UK of
settlements having to move because dry spells changed the environment.
However these all happened before you could tax carbon, and are so don't
I visited a fascinating abandoned town in Kenya, on the coast near Watamu.
It was built by the Portuguese in the 1600s, but one year the wells dried
up, and (IIRC) are still dry to this day. No water - they had to leave.
If instead of faffing about with carbon exchange schemes, we'd just
looked around at preparing for climate change, maybe Somerset would be
Yes, there have been several
We all know climate changes, we are currently near the end of an ice age.
What I don't understand is why some group thinks that we can prevent the
ice age ending.
They don't even know what caused the ice age or what will end it.
The ice age that we are in fact still in (and inside *that* we in an
interglacial, due to come to an end in the not-too-distant future) is
essentially caused by two factors:
1) A land mass over one pole, which allows ice to accumulate
2) land masses *around* the other pole, preventing flow of warmer water
from lower latitudes to keep it warm at the poles. This also allows ice
IIRC, the interglacials are caused by such as the Milankovitch Cycles.
Winky has an article about that.

In the context of that, the effect an energy saving lightbulb has is like
trying to empty the pacific using the healing power of crystals alone.
