I've been monitoring you all and laughing the whole time. It's funny how one of you uses day to day weather, tornadoes and cold Great Lake waters as clear evidence of no climate change. And it's even funnier you said nothing about the mild weather this country has been having. Cat got your tongue? Yet ignore what's happening in the rest of the world. Climate change is worldwide, not limited to a region. Btw, are you enjoying the unusually mild weather? smile.png Believe it or not I saw daffodils poking themselves out of the ground today.

 

The Earth is still on track for a record-breaking year for heat even though the average global temperature last month dipped to the seventh warmest since 1880, US government scientists said Monday.

The globally averaged temperature over land and ocean surfaces in November 2014 tied with 2008 as the seventh warmest for the month since record keeping began, said the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Still, the combined average for the entire year so far, from January to November, was "the warmest such period on record, surpassing the previous record set in 2010," NOAA said in its monthly report.

From January to November, the average temperature across global land and ocean surfaces was 1.22°F (0.68°C) above the 20th century average.

"This was the warmest January-November in the 1880-2014 record, surpassing the previous record set in 2010 by 0.02°F (0.01°C)," it said.

I don't know what country you are talking about but if you mean the Midwest in the U.S. then Snow is on the way big time! Enjoy that weather in Narnia......

Snow, in the midwest in the Winter season? Good Lord, that's unheard of. Does it happen often?

 

See there you go again, using weather and not only that, but weather that's suppose to happen in that part of the country during this time of the year to try and prove your point of no global climate change. Your argument would work if it was snowing someplace south of the equator, like Australia where it's Summertime.biggrin.png

Here in South India we had a "terribly hot" winter this time, though up in "North India" they had freezing winter. And yes in Australia and Africa they had a tough hot summer as well. Harsh summer way too hot.

Question, Is climate change real or not?  Answer, absolutely.

 

Question,What is driving it?  Answer, same thing that drove it for the last several million years, nature.   The evidence is there if the environmental whackos would simply open their eyes.  Satellite imaging shows that a few thousand years ago the Sahara Desert was green, with lakes and rivers.  And there is coal under Antartica. So clearly things were changing years before man crawled out from under a rock.  Even more recently, we find wooley mamoths ranging over the arctic.  But something happened, it turned colder and they went extinct.  But later it also warmed up a bit, because we also know the Scandinavian explorers who reached North America had self sufficient colonies growing food supplies in Greenland (And why is it called GREENland anyway if it has always been covered in ice?)  We had the mini ice age in the 1700s, and now its warming back up to normal.  And the global warming people scream "DISASTER AWAITS!"  Surely we must have caused the extinction of the mammoths , the mini ice age, and the warm-up that followed....The few thouand humans alive back then were great manipulators of the climate!   Both warming AND cooling!

 

Do we let them scare us with their hype?  Consider, climate change might well be the engine that drives evolution.  Example, right now we hear all about how the seal population is dwindling because the polar ice is melting.  We must save the polar bears because, well just because.  However there's the other side to this. The same warming that is melting the ice is also allowing a larger population of salmon to move farther north.  And the polar bears are learning to adapt, just like their cousins the brown bear in the Rockies.  They are switching to catching salmon instead of seals!  Of course some will not make the switch and they may die.  Extinction?  Probably not, but maybe the pecking order ill be disrupted, just as it has been anytime  conditions change. The wooley mammoths failed to make the change, maybe the bears will fare better.

 

So waht does that mean for us?  We also need to adapt.  We have intelligence; we can make changes before the "crisis" forces us to.  Sea levels may rise, so we can move our cities farther inland.  Or raise them up above the shore a few feet.  This is not an urgent thing; simply something done over the next 100 years or so.  As a building reaches its end of usefulness we tear it down as we always have.  But instead of building where it was we simply put its replacement farther from the coast.  We don't spend billions tearing down our cties; instead we "move" them as they mature.   If the gobal warmers want to do something constructive they could work toward adaption rather than prvention.  But I figure politicians will always be politicians and do the wrong thing.  Case in point is New Orleans;  how smart was it to build a city BELOW sea level???  Then suffer a disaster when a hurricane hits?  (Like Katrina ws the FIRST hurricane the Gulf had ever seen???)

 

Same goes with farmland.  Certainly some of our cropland will be lost to desert.  But at the same time new land that was too cold will now become the farm land of tomorrow..  Some animals may indeed fail to make the transition just as they always have.  but new species will evolve and adaptations will take their place.   Consider those polar bears; they have made the transition in just a few years, not generations.  They learn, can we?   

 

We can adapt rather than create panic.  Use common sense instead of politicians running around telling us what kind of light bulbs we can buy, what kind of cars we can drive, or bancrupting  industry  by adding carbon taxes, and other such foolishness.  Climate change is nature being nature, and we can adapt or go the way of the mammoth.  We didn't cause it and we can't stop it   But we can live with it.

The criminal fraudsters who pretend to be "scientists" have been caught lying yet again. This time it is at NASA. Yet again.

Unfortunately these criminals are supported by our taxes, and are responsible for driving the world economy over a cliff.

 

This is before we even start to talk about the way this scam has totally destroyed the credibility of science and scientists in general.

Yep.... 36% right is not right.

 

That will get you a D at most.
