Since it’s Spring 2019, time to change the thread title.

Ok, if anyone is paying attention, it’s NOAA! Sorry, us Canuckleheads miss the odd bit 😜

Sorry about that weather up in Maine! Not my fault, BBK!

LOL, yeah, cold and wet. Into June and I still had a fire in the stove, I can't wait for some of that 'global warming' to kick in so I don't have to heat 9 months out of the year.

Sorry. AGM is a hoax. :shock:

Not only that, we are now (unofficially) worrying about a solar minimum.

Does that mean we have to burn more coal? :?

I know. No matter how many charts and graphs I trot out while I try to explain the cyclical patterns of nature, some people (a lot) want to continue to play Chicken Little and believe that the sky is falling. I am still amazed at just how stupid 'average' people can be.

And even intelligent people who understand that the Earth has been warming for thousands of years with well documented warming and cooling periods along the way want to believe we are the major influence in the current fluctuations.

Some have benefited and will benefit from warming and some suffer from it, but on the whole, thus far, humans have seen a net benefit from warming.

People need to believe that the warming should have stopped in the twentieth century and that somehow we can control the planet's cycles.

Obviously, humans do have some effect on weather and climate, but can we change them much and to everyone's benefit?

Suppose we had a thermostat that would raise and lower the temperature of the entire Earth at will.

Who would control it, and what would determine the setting?

CO2 is Making Us Fat and Malnourished

Here is an item that seems to be trending up. I first noticed mention some time back and here it is again.
https://www.politico.com/agenda/story/2 ... ide-000511

I wonder what this will turn into.

Global warming and cooling have been topics of speculation for as long as people have been able to talk, with opinions all over the map.

At any particular moment, some specific idea dominates the conversation and all the historic material, no matter how weak or speculative is marshaled to support that view, while all the opposing or neutral evidence is ignored or deprecated.

Now is it being suggested that Global Warming and the release of CO2 is increasing the sugar content of foods and making us fat and malnourished?

True or not, this is a notion that feeds the popular narrative and is bound to catch on.

Wait for it...
