Personal Observation

When Australia is in heat wave conditions I take comfort in memories of the bitterly cold wind that whistles up and down the streets of New York.

The USA and Canada are still colder than here but I’m sure they’ll enjoy the warm winter.

How’s California doing after the catastrophic fire storm a few moths back ?

Did they get enough rainfall to break their drought conditions ?

The couple of bursts of rainfall we had in Australia has not ended the 4 or 5 year drought a lot of our farmers are experiencing.

There doesn’t seem to be an end to the heat wave conditions that is ongoing across the planet.

It’s almost like the climate is changing on us !

Canberra Times,

Forecasters have cautioned that there is “no reprieve” from the heatwave until at least the weekend as already record-breaking temperatures reach their peak.
Parts of Sydney will swelter into the 40s on Wednesday, just a precursor of a 45C high to come on Friday. Canberra could reach 41C today while 45C is likely in regional cities across New South Wales. On Tuesday, Hay, in the west of the state, almost touched 48C.
An extreme heatwave that poses a risk to even fit and healthy people is now in full swing in eastern parts of the state. The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has warned of “oppressive conditions”.
Yes, it’s summer and heat is no stranger this time of year — but this is something else.

11th Warmest Start to Meteorological Winter on Record

Meteorological Winter is described as the coldest 3 months on average for the northern hemisphere and emcompasses the months of December, January and February. Looking at the data from MSP, the first half of Meteorological Winter (December 1st - January 14th) was the 11th warmest such periond on record with an average temp of +25.8F.

People want or maybe even need to turn a blind eye where global warming/climate change is concerned, and that’s only natural imo because the cold hard facts are understandably difficult to accept. I hear people talking about it all the time and the most popular defence seems to be that its all in our minds, that Canadians have always endured very cold winters and have had our share of extremely hot summers, so what else is new?
All I can say is that denial is not a fix. We have at our fingertips the ability to do the research. It’s not rocket science folks. Check out what’s happening around the world. Whether it be melting glaciers, bleached coral reefs, rising seas, or unpredictable weather, this shit is real and we owe it to the planet we depend on for life and for our future, to do whatever we have to do to help.
At the very least, face reality.

Climate change is happening all around us. The evidence is very clear. How much is caused by human action may be up for debate but the reality is it doesn't much matter the cause if you are suffering the effect.
The main reason not to do anything about it is economic but if we encourage the "green" economy, you can thne make a helluva ot of money for the changes we need to make.

Hi guys as Vince a Sadie pointed out, it doesn’t much matter how it’s happening, whether it’s humans or Mother Nature herself, the climate is changing.

Whatever we can do to stem the flow of poison flowing into the atmosphere we should do it.

There’s as many jobs in the renewable energy sector as there are in the coal, oil and gas fields. People have resisted change throughout history, I remember my grandmother had a copper boiler and she couldn’t be convinced that an electric washing machine would work better.


Greenland loses 4 trillion pounds of ice in one day

Steffen Olsen, a scientist with the Danish Meteorological Institute, got an eerie up-close look at the changing ice sheets last week. Olsen was on a routine mission to pick up weather monitoring tools on sea ice in northwest Greenland when he saw meltwater pooled up on the sheet's surface, making it look like his sled dogs were walking on water.

There is another factor that the un-educated will never know or believe, and that good. Some folks know the truth, and i'll just leave it at that and just sit back and laugh, some folks are really packing in the money from this.....;):ROFLMAO:

World famous actors, leaders, and business titans have flocked to a luxurious Sicilian resort this week to discuss climate change at a Google-hosted summit — but will undoubtedly leave their mark on the climate in the process.

Former President Barack Obama, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, and even Prince Harry are expected to attend the summit, which has been dubbed “Google Camp.”

“Everything is about global warming, that is the major topic this year,” a source told the New York Post of the summit’s agenda.

In a palpable turn of irony, Italian media reported officials expect attendees to bring 114 private jets to the summit; 40 had already arrived by the weekend. Climate change advocates claim jet airplanes expel tons of ozone-eroding greenhouse gases, which they say contributes to global warming.
According to calculations by the Post, 114 jet flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, Italy — where the Falcone Borsellino Airport is located — would expel an estimated 100,000 kilograms of CO2, a known greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere.

Many of the attendees are even expected to stay on mega-yachts.

“Google Camp is meant to be a place where influential people get together to discuss how to make the world better,” an attendee told the Post. “There will likely be discussions about online privacy, politics, human rights, and of course, the environment, which makes it highly ironic that this event requires 114 private jets to happen.”

Funny but you need to note tgat climate and weather are very different things.
People are terrible at noticing change over a long period of time. Summers were always a hotter and winters colder in previous years.

Mr. Vinnie I saw a book on whats going on, maybe you could find time to read it and let us know whats going on.... book-long-dark-winter.jpg I remember a college professor who was neutral in opinions and facts, a delight for us weary folks who listen to one sided opinions. He said a logical mind will process info and recieve facts from all sources and not judge one over the other, but use an open mind, wise man indeed! If you choose to be logical and open minded, find a Barnes and Nobel and check out this bad boy......

That's self contradictory; recommending checking all sources then extolling the virtues of a single opinion. The fact is that 97% of scientists within the climate field agree that human activity has had a detrimental effect on world climate.

My friend , im going to have to disagree with you on that one. These so called scientist aim every thing on human activity, cars, factories, and human existance. Sometimes "scientist" can cook the books, to push an agenda. You take away autos and air conditioning from southwesterners just because you think you cooler city life is the same, "they" wont be popular down here. Its a known fact, that volcanos emit more carbon than auto and factories combined. Go to Hawaii and Green land, its volcano city Arizona. Besides, trees and plants need carbon to exist any ways, Its cool being of different beliefs and back grounds, because we can calmly disagree...;):unsure:

I'm not talking about "scientists" (whatever they are), I'm talking about scientists: the experts in this field. The fact that nature emits more carbon than cars and factories combined isn't an argument, that is natural: a natural system balances itself. When the system is imbalanced by an outside influence (such as our emissions), it either breaks down or takes time (sometimes a very long time) to compensate.

"You take away autos and air conditioning from southwesterners just because you think you cooler city life is the same, "they" wont be popular down here." - I wish I could work out what point you are trying to make here, the sentence doesn't make sense, at least to an Englishman. If I've got right what I think you are trying to say, it's not a popularity competition, it's proven scientific fact, not a matter of opinion.

My friend, I respect you and England, always, yeup I am a southern hot rodding, biking, beer guzzling, hillbilly redneck. I, sir, as well as many others in Merica are set in their ways. Thats a fact. But we do give a "care" for the enviorment, as many people fail to under stand. At auto , motorcycle, aviation, boating sporting events, and recreational, events, we pick up our trash, use "clean" fuels, respect nature. And, on vehicles requiring emessions systems, 85% of hot rodders, leave it alone. Thats pretty high. As a matter of fact, Merica, gives more of a crap about the enviorment than the whole planet, belive that bro! India and China have more emissions polution than any volcano. So in sumnation, we gear heads and power sports Mericans do give a care about the enviorment, even though its never recognized. Now if you excuse me ill have to change my oil, and recycle it at a recycling center and the bottles are sent to a recycling factory as well...:cool:(y)

It's called 'denial' and it's the most dangerous beast that ever lived. :)
