Are you worrying about Global Warming today? Maybe not, huh?

Maybe a little understanding of statistics is in order.

Nmmatt, welcome to USNP forum!


It must be something in the water.... since the anti-climatic climax of the Climate Summit we can no longer blame this on Copenhagen--- but seriously, what is UP with all these threads on global warming? This thread properly belongs on the Environmental Issues forum, and will be so moved as soon as I call the moving van... 


We do have one thread here on USNP to dedicated solely for members on this forum to discuss Climate Change, Global Warming, etc..etc... you can continue to discuss your take on the thread named "Is the Climate Change Left Feeling Foolish Yet?" --- LINK HERE for your convenience.


Kind regards to all,

Our need to learn should always outweigh our need to be right

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren't so busy denying them.

Well, it's been cold here in Southern California too.... Yesterday I was talking to clients in Florida and they were cold too. One of the staff grows oranges on his property.... Yesterday afternoon I stocked up on orange juice.... when the temps fall to the thirties, the price of orange juice goes sky high as crops freeze.


Cold really is realtive. CESmom, I've lived in bitterly cold places but once I became accustomed to California, I shiver when the temps fall below 60 and at forty ABOVE 0, I'm wearing my heavy sweater, leather jacket, gloves and scarf.


We Californians suffer from the cold too, but  we don't DIE from being exposed to the weather for only 5 minutes either. I miss snow but I don't miss serious cold weather.


Huh... icecaps in Greenland may be melting... Cyclical change or human caused? I'm still an agnostic on that matter.


The settlement of Greenland by the Norse is an interesting tale of  climate change. When it got too cold even for Nordic people, too cold for crops to grow, and they had to chop down what few trees that remained to heat their houses of stone, they starved to death. That ships bringing goods from Iceland and Norway stopped coming didn't help matters much. 


The little Ice Age slowly gripped the largest island in the world, and so ended the Nordic settlements of Greenland. I wonder if the luck of Eric the Red, credited with discovering Greenland, is still considered luck.
