"Global warming again"


          

Like those climate deniers I too like some global warming some time. Today is 72, but tomorrow's weather is going to be 40 degrees colder and a chance for snow, then maybe another week of cold.

"Texas winter seems to be on the cold side too."

It was that way after hurricane Ike too. Active hurricane season followed by a cold winter.

As I said before, this used to be the standard. People are freaking out over a standard 1970's winter. Which is probably going to turn milder shortly.

evolve gills. Not in a short time anyway.

Getting used to a warmer climate is probably easier than adjusting to a more arctic climate.

I've heard it said people whose ancestors evolved in more arctic climates had bigger noses to act as a warming chamber for inhaling frigid air. Sounds reasonable to me.

"Best graphic I've seen about changing climate is from XKCD."
In response to Reply #3
Edited on Tue Jan-16-18 02:46 AM by MadSatyrist

          

His graphics are informal, for an informal audience, but he does get the information in there.

https://xkcd.com/1732/

https://xkcd.com/1379/

BTW, if you search on that on Google, you'll turn up a page on the Federalist that presumes to contradict that first graphic. In the contradiction, the author makes the curious statement that thermometer readings are only 120 years old, which is so damned false that it's simply impossible to describe how false it is. Spotty, perhaps, but the thermometer was invented by Galileo.

120 years ago is 1900, and the Centigrade scale was developed in 1742. Fahrenheit scale was around since 1724. And the alcohol thermometer was developed in 1709.

Hey, only off by 200 years or so. Perfectly acceptable to global warming denialists who are bent out of shape over ancient scales being averaged over 120 years. Gee, is 200 bigger than 120? Hell, NOAA has arctic temperature records older than 1900.

"Fahrenheit vs. Celsius."
In response to Reply #4


          

Fahrenheit is the finer graduation but is considered the more old fashioned scale of the two measurements. Celsius is more often used by those of a scientific bent. But there is a bit of sleight of hand going on with the climate change deniers. They want to use the Celsius scale so that they can say, "Oh, the temperature has only gone up a couple of degrees."

1 degree Celsius is equal to 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. Almost double. And not as alarming when announced in the Celsius scale.

So when it suits their purpose, conservatives like to get progressive with the metric system.
