It's About the Climate

First let me say that I am not an expert on climate change. I only know that our temperatures are getting warmer and if they continue to do so we will all have to change what is "normal" for us. So, I do not know for certain that this warming trend is manmade or a natural recurring cycle and that nothing man can do will change what will happen.

The reason I mention this is that Climate Change, or better stated, the lack thereof is a hot topic among the far right. It's one of their ten commandments, "Thou shalt not believe man can harm the earth, especially if it derives a profit for mankind (mankind meaning, white, protestant, straight American male).


It's obvious that they don't understand the data they cut and paste as the following graph that has been tearing up the right wing websites so glaringly shows.





This is the graph they are touting proves Climate Change does not exist as finally in 6 years, late in the season, accumulated ice mass hits average.

I find it scary that people who call themselves educated would use this graph to disprove climate change as basic math principles show in this graph that in the last 6 years including this year, sea ice has been less than normal. Note that even this year if sea ice ends the season at normal for 60 percent of the season sea ice was below normal. Also, remember back to high school math and averaging that whatever number was average basically half the numbers would be above it and half would be below. Note that none of the last 6 years is above average which would mean temperatures have been warmer than average.

Oh well, common sense and the far right rarely meet.

Interesting article in the "New Yorker" magazine about Mitt Romney and his Dad, and the far right take-over of the Republican Party which started in 1964. This take-over drove Romney senior and to some extent Nelson Rockerfella, the Republican progressive group, from power.

How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days?
Oh twenty-four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime, Oh baby when I feel this way
Sittin, lookin at the clock, time moves so slow
I've been watchin for the hands to move
Until I just can't look no more
How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seems to slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way.

To sing a song for you, I recall you used to say
"Oh baby this one's for we two", Which in the end is you anyway

How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way.

There was a time that I stood tall, In the eyes of other men
But by my own choice I left you woman, And now I can't get back again

How come twenty-four hours, sometimes slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way
A minute seems like a lifetime ... Oh Baby
When I feel this way...I feel this way

So do your political views mirror your personality Tea? Some peoples do, me myself find remaining neutral the best bet. As I see it, all politicians are crooks, and we just hope to get those that hurt us and the environment the least. Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday week-end.

Lotis, I am far from bitter but I do have an agenda which is quite obvious. I discredit teh tea party and the far right. It's obvious that bothers you as exactly what you excuse me of, editorilizing, is no different than what is posted by the far right and even you from time to time. The big difference is though is that in the past few weeks, I've backed up everything that I posted in that sentence.

Ashmore...I couldn't agree more with what you say and that I would be more sympathetic to those that do not believe in Climate Change if they were more sympathetic to the enviroment.

Post # 9, first I don't think "Tea" is what you say, he's just , "passionette" about what he believes. That being said, have you sent the same or similar message to "Sabastianjer's" blog. I wonder, I'd like to know, but I'm banned from it!, so I can't check it.


Did you make the same mistake I did and start asking the hard questions? The questions they do not want to answer on his blog? Jer found it easier to just ban me than to actually answer my polite and on topic questions.

Tea, I am not the wisest man on earth, far from it at times. What I do know is this, it seems the weather has gotten warmer as you said, but with the amount of destruction to our natural resources that mankind has inflicted upon our planet, and the way we as a race are buiding newer and bigger cities, and covering greenlands with concrete and asphalt, how can we not be at responsible for some of the weather annomolies that have occured over these last few years? We as a race have never pushed the earth as we have over the last ten or so years, destroying natural resources, new growth in building, new and ever increasing need for parking areas and such have taken much of the woodlands that we knew as children, and all in the name of progress. I myself truly believe that all sides of the political coin contain fools, and those who choose to turn a blind eye to those things that are plain to see, are the biggest fools of all. I am generally not political, but I am a lover of the outdoors, such is all our rights, but the government is not so inclined, they care little for such things as I have written regarding nature. So whats more important, balance in all things (weather and nature), or progress at the corporate level, which robs us all of our woodlands and wildlife.
