Re: NFC: The Toothfairy and Global Warming :)
there are a lot of somewhat weird things happening,
which are attributed to the changing of the jet
streams, which, are affected/directed by ocean temp
One of the other weird things of the past fifty years
is a 'precession' of the seasons, earlier or later
seasons, and more extreme seasonal changes, which
among other things cause cold weather in previously
warm areas such as Fla. while at the same time Alaska
weather too warm to run many of the sled dog races, no
snow due to melting.
One other , more ominous effect we have seen
throughout the entire southern USA the past decade and
that is increasing drought, the southwest is now in a
ten year drought which has greatly impacted wildlife.
There in Fla you have had unusual drought. All of
these are due to changes in the jet streams which are
caused by variations in ocean temps, for the most part
OTOH, countries close to the Indian Ocean have had
record flooding, Southern Africa in particular. Damage
to the infrastructure has been severe. Changes in the
ocean temp again. I was in South Africa, North
Province last year when it came, folks there had never
seen such rains in their lifetimes, and, there are no
records of such, ever.
The data is indeed not in, but, there is enough that
is that very disturbing trends can be seen, for those
who will see them. Weather extremes have happened in
the past few years that are records exceeding anything
recorded since records have been kept. Central Asia
has had two of the coldest winters ever these past two
years. Along with heavy snows.
These aberrant weather patterns are due to the changes
in the jet streams, which in turn are affected by
changes in ocean temps, which are affected by many
Re Mark Twains oranges, I know a family in St Louis
that has a couple trees also in their back yard, but,
it is sheltered, and a hardy variety.
nuff, lots to speculate on, and thats all anyone can
do for now, but we should be making some careful
assessments as to what is going on, and plans .
Continual using of 15% of the western water resources
to irrigate southern california highways plantings is
one of the more brain dead things that needs to stop,
and we could reallocate that water to restoration of
overdrawn aquifers of the southwest. For starters.
