Global Warming Observation   Leave a comment

More evidence for doubting global warming and wondering if there’s another reason for that sea ice meltdown besides temperature.

In the attached article, Ned Rozell, science writer with the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Geophysical Institute recounts Alaska’s cooling trend of the last decade. Winters were getting warmer for two decades (my observation) and now they’re getting colder (Ned and I agree). Summers are colder than when I was a kid, but they’ve been holding steady for most of this century.

My point is that we don’t really know why this is happening, but there are people in our world who want us to take extreme action to control it – action that will certainly devastate our economy and devastate the budgets of most families – even though they don’t understand what is causing the phenomena. Moreover, they are unable to explain why, if global temperatures are increasing, temperatures across a wide swath of the northern hemisphere are decreasing.

A wiser solution would be to do what humans have always done – adapt to changing conditions. Stop panicking and trying to control forces greater than ourselves and adapt. And in a century or two, or next decade, when the temperature pendulum swings again, we adapt the other way.
