You are kidding, right? Do you actually believe '20% chance of widely
scattered showers in the evening.' equates to 3.8 inches of rain in five
hours in the morning and the afternoon? 20% chance of widely scattered
showers in the evening mean there is a 20% change there will be scattered
showers in the evening. LOL
If we are to go by old weather records, try this. Watch a weather report
the shows the highs and lows for the day. Keep a note of the highs for two
week in summer. I defy you to find more than two days out of those two
weeks where the current high sets a record for that day in history. If the
earth is indeed warming should we not be setting new daily records, yet you
will not see more than three in two months? LOL
If you looking at things seasonally, it would be much less likely to break
a record in the warmer months. And much more likely to do it in the colder
months. There were WEEKS in a row last winter where records were broken
all over the United States.
When I was a kid, the ponds fuse to freeze over (thick enough to walk on)
1-2 times per winter. I haven't seen a frozen pond in 20 years. But I
seriously doubt that change is man-made. The earth can belch and change the
weather more in 1 year than man can change it in 100 years.
I'm sure you are kidding as any educated person will realize the truth. In
case someone think breaking records is a must take a week of summer
temperatures such as :
85 85 85 105 88 90 87 Note that the 105 is a record high for
The next year, the same week the temperatures are:
90 90 93 90 89 94 92
No record broken, but much more heat.
Much more heat than when last year, ten years ago? The early thirties, in
the midst of the depression, the summer was much warm than any summer in the
past ten years. Was burning coal the problem then? Why did it get colder?
Mike, take a deep breath and read the thread again. You're not grasping
the obvious here.
In the depression, when it was hot in the USA, it was colder somewhere
else, making the average stay relatively stable. Now the average is moving
No, actually I didn't forget to say that. I really don't think it is
opinion any more. I'll concede that there are still a precious few people
still holding out, but each year brings more converts.
Not going to scan this whole thread BUT I'm have to assume that
_someone_ will point out to all of you that you people are using local
stats in a discussion about GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGES...............
