Maybe We Ought to Rethink Global Warming   5 comments

April is the beginning of spring here. In most of the Lower 48, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Here in Alaska, things are a little later. Last week, we saw our first puddle and the snow started settling. Woo-hoo! Spring’s a-coming.

The Sunday morning we woke up to this!

4-6 inches fell from Sunday morning to last night around midnight.

This winter was the coldest winter in Fairbanks in 13 years. It still didn’t hold a candle to the winters we used to have when I was a kid, but it so cold one day in January that my car overheated when the onboard computer freaked out over how cold it was.

So, when the enviro-bullies start grinding their teeth in panic over global warming, I’m not overly concerned because —

IT’S FREAKING APRIL 11 and THERE”S NO SIGN WHATSOEVER THAT SPRING IS COMING!

  1. We had a little snow last night in Iowa–just a spitting. My daffodils finally started blooming Saturday, and I have some hyacinths getting ready to bloom later this week. Spring is late here too.

    But hey, a consensus of scientists are throwing out those outliers that don’t fit their narrative, so we must have global warming, right?

    • Syun Akasofu, former director of the International Arctic Research Center and a foremost authority on the aurora, says he always gets suspicious when scientists announce a consensus because consensus thinking is not what science should ever do. Scientists are supposed to question and endeavor and falsify because only in this way do you “prove” anything. I think in five years they’re going to announce we’ve ended an ice age.

  2. Hear in Ireland we have had the coldest 2 year period anyone can remember . Its all the talk . This spring has been over a month late. Cattle fodder is in short supply . They had to import it from England (never happened before ). Grass growth is 5 weeks late . Birds are now only hatching and many died during the severe cold of 2010 / 11 winter . Government has brought forward farm grant annual payments to help farmers . Meanwhile a carbon tax was put of solid fuel on May 1 st . Keepin homes warm is a big problem .

    • I firmly believe that our governments and societies need to spend money to ADAPT to climate change because it is part of the natural cycle of the planet. Instead of wasting time, energy and resources (not to mention anxiety) on trying to combat something that is probably out of our control, we should be adapting to it and releasing the economic engines of the industrialized nations to make that possible rather than strangling innovation by trying to control carbon emissions.

      The Vikings had limited carbon emissions. First they had the Medieval Warm Period that allowed them to farm in Greenland and then they had the Little Ice Age that starved them. Clearly there is more at work than SUVs.
