Global Warmth Reached Here

“A stretch of mild weather that significantly shrank the city’s monstrous snowbanks and turned roads and sidewalks into a sodden mess also marked the longest January period of above 0 C temperatures since 1873.”

I know one anecdote doesn’t make a novel but the warm spell noted to the right is in the midst of two weeks of way-above-average-temperatures. no kidding. The “jet stream” that normally allows wintery air from the North to hover over us all winter has literally broken up and that cold air has flown the coop. I’m not complaining. It’s keeping the snowmobilers who were hassling me all wet but my snow cover is almost gone. We had one day of -35° C and two or three minor dumps of snow and nothing but well above weather forecast for weeks.

    No. Most petroleum comes out of the ground as polyolefins: H(CH2)nH so it’s 2 and a bit of H per atom of carbon. Molecules are a mix of “n” from 1 in methane to 20+ in the heavier waxy/tarry molecules.

    “Hint: Nature does not burn billions of barrels of CH2.* per annum. Humans do.”

    I wasn’t aware that humans burned Methylene.

    Hint: Nature does not burn billions of barrels of CH2.* per annum. Humans do. The resultant tonnage of CO2 is a greenhouse gas, letting in light and reflecting infrared in a big way.

    Thanks to the levelheadedness of Trump, the global warmers will be in the political wilderness. Meanwhile, nothing will get warmer, just as nothing has gotten warmer over the last 20 years. This is bad news for their agenda.

    The global warming movement is committed to a fraud. There is no known connection between human actions and world temperature. This is the conclusion of over 31,000 scientists. But the GWM hucksters dismiss this information as “denial.” They are correct. It is.

    Try 40 degrees C with around 50 percent relative humidity! That is what we have in the lower Blue Mountains of NSW Australia. The forecast is for severe thundershowers.

    Meanwhile the West Antarctic Ice Shelf continues to break up
