My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Climate Change: Missed This One 

Fortunately, Ben had his eyes open:

Satellite data shows that concerns over the levels of sea ice may have been premature.

It was feared that the polar caps were vanishing because of the effects of global warming.

But figures from the respected US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that almost all the “lost” ice has come back.

Ice levels which had shrunk from 13million sq km in January 2007 to just four million in October, are almost back to their original levels.

Hmmmm. Let's see now, what happened between January and October? . . . . Oh, I'm thinking . . . .it's on the tip of my tongue . . .

Oh, yeah. SUMMER!

So, I ask again: if it's reasonable, as all reasonable people must agree, that the earth goes through micro-climate changes that we frequently refer to as "seasons", why would it not, likewise, be reasonable to assume the the earth periodically goes through macro-clmate changes? Like the water being warmer in the oceans for a few years in a row.

All of nature operates in cycles; "global warming" is just one more example.
