Brrr.. It’s Cold Outside

In case anyone hasn’t noticed, it’s quite cold out.  Temperatures are below freezing in Florida, Great Britain recently suffered its worst snowstorm in 20 years, and the temperatures so far this winter in most of the U.S. and the world have been well below their average for long stretches of time.  A fluke, you may say?  Well, some of the world’s most eminent climatologists are now stating that this is part of a new trend towards global cooling of temperatures that is likely to last for 20-30 years.  As opposed to warming (which generally helps civilizations and cultures to thrive), cooling has some real consequences.  Of course, as we all know, the cooling is part of the warming (or something like that).  Insanity.

Hate to possibly disagree.

I’m not TOTALLY convinced yet, however the most accepted science seems to point to steady warming, with one of the side effects of the trend being an increase in extremes. You guys have extreme cold, we have people dropping dead from 43C (109.4F) heat for several days on the Southern states of Oz with Melbourne 37C at midnight two days ago. The bush fire warning level has been increased to Catastrophic. Last year around 180 people were killed in one weekend when Victoria exploded in fires. This year is potentially even worse, though new laws make it easier to force people to flee rather than stay to fight for their homes. We have much of Oz in extreme drought with even year gettting warmer overall than the previous over the last decade. Of course there have been extreme cold snaps in some locale’s during winter, however we had no winter at all in our area.

Somethings not right in the weather patterns.
