Take your choice:
Floods in the south east, especially around Atlanta
Another wild fire in SoCal.
8,500 acres, less than 6% relative humidity, 6,000 firefighters.
Fortunately no deaths here in SoCal, unlike the SE.
Either way, Mother Nature can be a bitch.
Take care of yourself out there.
Don't you love global warming?
The president gets up before the UN and talks about the global warming
and the mid section of his country is experiencing the coldest summer in
over 100 years. Talks about global warming caused drought, and the
southeastern part of his country is under several feet of water.
Maybe it is in the virtual world of his computer. I wish he would get
off of his computer and look at the 90% of the country he represents.
A significant contribution to global warming is all the hot air from
polititians and their "global warming" contributors that will make untold
profits from this latest scam.
Apparently the reason that the Arctic is loosing glaciers is because they
are melting from the "ground side/bottom" Greenland, not far from that
region is virtually a hot bed of under ground volcanic like activity that
normally takes place on the ocean floor but comes to the surface there.
If there were not a way to make major money off of global warming you would
not hear another word on the subject.
While one must be sceptical of the pronouncments of James Hansen
(a demogogue as much as a scientist), one must also not confuse
weather with climate.
(While climate change is a certainty, _anthropogenic_ climate change
is still a theory, with little science supporting it).
In science, "theory" is virtually fact, as in The Theory of Universal
Gravitation or the Theory of Electricity or the Theory of Evolution. With
about 1% more certainty, a scientific "theory" can get promoted to "Law" as
in the Law of Conservation of Energy or Law of Thermodynamics.
In vulgar usage, "theory" means conjecture, guess, hypothesis, possibility.
That's why when a religious person says: "Evolution is a theory!" and the
scientist replies, "Uh, yeah, that's right," they are using the same word to
mean two different things.

More like "unsubstantiated wild-assed guess". At least as the right
wingers use the term.

That's correct, unfortunately.

If you read the attributions above and apply a modicum of logic it should
occur to you that I was asking Andrew Barss to what, specifically, his "no"
above referred since it was not clear from context. I fail to see how
_your_ telling me to what _you_ object sheds any light on the matter of
what, specifically, _he_ was questioning.
True enough. Or whether the warming or cooling is part of a long term trend or
not. Or whether humans are causing it.
But therein lies the problem. Whether those things are occurring or not is a
scientific question, not a political one. If a right wing fascist bastard says
it is happening (or not), is that a better answer than if a left wing socialist
bastard says so? I hope not.
What to do about it, if anything, is a political question. But not whether it
is happening. It is a damn shame that the left and right have polarized on
that issue. That is not a route to the truth, whatever the truth may be.
The question may be scientific, but the answers we are guiding our
economic lives by have been political.
Yeah, and taking drastic measures to change something that you don't
even know is happening, or the opposite is happening, or much of
anything is happening is political, left wing, socialist bastard
political. Seems the political goal is to stifle the wildly successful
capitalist economy of the US.
It's just part of life when you suffer with a left wing controlled
media. Their constant lies and left wing propaganda might destroy them
as about no one believes a word they say anymore. There could be a
light at the end of the tunnel, or it could be the socialist propaganda
train coming to stomp all over free speech.

I am disbelieving more and more what he says. Sun spots and solar
flares can effect our climate/weather in short order and there's not
much we can do about it. It's not "Global Warming" anymore, it's
"Global Change." "Change we can believe in." He wins the
Presidential Award for Fiscal Irresponsibility.
