I would consider no bugs on my windscreen an improvement.I'm also waiting for the promised warmer summers in the UK, instead they just predicted 3 months of winter snow.


It is in the 80s here, two days before November.

Our springs have consistentally started earlier, summers hotter (except for 3 summers ago when it rained all day every day all summer, but that is also very unusual - but it was heavenly) and indian summers lasting through the end of fall for the past few years. It was 75 on Christmas Eve last year. It felt disgusting.

Of course climate isnt the same as weather so neither of us are really proving anything by giving our weather reports, but I did want to point out just because you arent seeing anything unusual doesnt mean other people arent either.

Overall the last 3 years have broken records as being the hottest on record.

I had a teacher suggest that "Global Warming" is somewhat of a misnomer, suggesting that the "Warming" term is accurate to describe the conditions of a lot of places but other places may experience more intense cold as well. It's suggesting more of an instability in the climate and he quipped that it should be called "Global Weirding".

naivete and ignorance permeate any discussion concerning these issues.

local patterns and cyclical fluctuations are not what the issue is, it's the rise in the mean global temp that is the problem.

 

sure 99.9% of all species since the Cambrian period have gone extinct, and the vast majority of those extinctions were because the species were unable to adapt to a changing environment.

now we still have the naturally occurring changes and fluctuations compounded by human activities and the net result in regards to this thread is an exponential rise in species dying off.

 

concerning weather patterns, well it's all regulated by the moisture content of the atmosphere, so higher temps = more evaporation=higher humidity=changes in climate/weather patterns.

We teach lessons on the water cycle to 4-5 year old kids, and they get it, what's up with some supposedly educated adults?

it really isn't that hard to comprehend, why do some folks have such a problem.

 

humans started altering the chemical composition of the atmosphere whenever we domesticated cattle. ;)

all of which is readily explained and understood by higher moisture content in the atmosphere.

 

Hell, if enough of the north Atlantic ice shelves melt, it could disrupt the Gulf stream and plunge the planet into another ice age.

That could be true for either side of our arguments. If the situation is as bad as I'm afraid that it might be, it would be in our governments and our 1%'ers best interest to keep people in the dark about it. 

 

If you knew that society was going to break down in 5 years, would you tell everyone and risk it breaking down tomorrow? Or would you use the next 5 years to prepare and give yourself more of a survival advantage?

I'm 60, I don't care what happens in 5 years.
Only today and tomorrow is important now.

My wife is a jungle survival expert, we're only 2km from endless jungle. She and the kids will be ok. She's survived in the jungle before.

What if the jungle catches on fire? Is she skilled in survival anywhere else?!?!?!?

Yeah, what's the human population density around you in a 1K mile radius? When everything goes to shit, millions of starving humans will be combing through just about every forest devouring everything and anything and ANYONE. A few months after our Walmarts become vacant steel shells, people will be boiling their beloved pets. A month after that, their not so beloved neighbors. Or probably the other way around.

Mostly rice paddy, jungle and mountains. Thousands of square kilometers of jungle.

My misses has a hunter gatherer background, she can farm, but can also live off the jungle.
