Global warming... it's happening!

I just wanted to share that I feel like being steamed alive in Seoul right now.

It’s hot and humid, even during the midnight. It’s currently two past midnight and I’m having trouble going to sleep. It’s 29℃ (84.2F) with 92% (are you serious) humidity right now.

Even my 27℃ (80.6F) room with A/C feels like an igloo, thanks to the decreased humidity.

Here’s the official weather page for Korea: http://www.kma.go.kr/weather/main_all.jsp?stncd=108

However, it doesn’t provide a specific URL for my location, but it should be similar.

Thanks for listening to my rant. Big Smile

Virginia/Maryland USA now has the Asian Tiger Mosquito and West Nile Virus. Plus there are several Mystery Illnesses in several other states. Not trying to confuse causation with correlation but I imagine the warmer we get up here the more 'tropical' issues we will face.

Oh, and Florida has a huge Python issue as well. When we get alligators in Maryland I am moving to Canada!

That sounds hot! I hope you can get some sleep.

I must say I enjoyed it when it rained here recently during the freak summer time thunderstorms. Warm rain feels lovely! I’m hoping this country will become more “tropical”. :bigsmile:

Its too bad we are nearing the point of no return as far as climate change goes. Record breaking temperatures for the last 23 years in a row… and people still doubt its happening. There are probably better sources, but i cant seem to find them at the moment

No there isn’t any doubting it, I was just continuing the silly thread theme, on how one man could cause global warming Smile

Please don't confuse weather with climate... if you want to say hot weather is due to climate change you can't then laugh at the morons on Fox 'news' who inevitably claim that since it still snows in winter the whole thing must be a hoax.

True, you cant say your current weather is proof of global warming, but this isnt a serious thread I thought Wink Both claims can be equal opportunities to laugh. Plus, I’d say TheOnion is a superiour source of news entertainment compared Fox Big Smile

The question isn't whether there is, or there isn't global warming... rather it's a question of how we affect the natural cycles that do occur with climate change, and how we can, or can't affect them.

Nor is it global warming we should worry about... but the result, which is global cooling.

Where I live must be out of reach of the global warming. Here its been a very cool year with lots of rain.
The temps are some what mild compared to how I have seen it. I think its just mother nature and her endless cycle.
Data to back it up: Here are the monthly average temps for my area. Current years are at the bottom.
http://www.erh.noaa.gov/gsp/climate/newAVLmonthlyTobs.htm
.
This year we have seen unusual high amounts of rain. We are already at 51.78 inches of rain and still have 5 months left and guess what, its raining right now and has rained in spots for the last 3 days.
Rain data for my area.

As for climate change, I just don’t see it.

I was doing a job in Isfahan in 1984. One of our coworkers allway carried a big oldfashion analog thermometer. Once we were sitting together at 9:30 AM in the shadow for a short breaktime. The guy was staring at his thermometer and sayed: “Hey boys, we have 55 degrees in the shadow today!” The the guy next to him, just replayed: “Nothing to worry about, we are not supposed to work in the shadow.”

Btw. It was hot like that for about one week. I didn’t mesure how the temperature was during the night, but I guess it was around 35 C.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

Yeah, thats what we (edited) were talking about, you can’t look at your weather, or even lifetime trends in one area to say it is or isn’t happening. Some areas will get cooler, some hotter, some stay the same, and our lifetimes are pretty insignificant in the time space of things: you have to compare to before we are alive, all of us are IN the warming trend all our lives, so its “normal” to our personal observations of people living inland. Its like a minnow saying “my 12” cove area on the coast is getting warmer/cooler, therefore the whole ocean is warming/cooling. But what they look at to determine global warming is the global trends in climate combined, the amount of arctic ice melt, the way glaciers are melting and not returning, the ice vanishing off mountains that used to stay year round, the energy in storms, etc.

Plus yes how much is to due to “natural” warming is up for debate, however that humans are accelerating it is not debatable. And the damage is also not debatable, just ask some in affected areas about their islands disappearing, the polar bears who are starving or the algal blooms in some areas. For me? Cant say that I can see much difference locally either except maybe slightly warmer winters — but I know my small observation doesnt really matter in the scale of things. I know its very silly of me to say its not happening because my little area isn’t obviously noticeably warmer to me and therefore the people living on islands who are losing land day by day, the people getting ready to mine Greenland areas which were covered by ice in their family memories or the governments fighting over who gets to drill for oil in the polar regions which are now getting exposed/drill-able are all imagining things!

I keep hearing all these so-called smart people talking about how the earth is round and whatnot. Well, I went outside and looked around, even checked with a yardstick, and it looks pretty damn flat to me. Take that, 'scientists'!

I used to think Gore just pushed his agenda for the money, but was surprised to discover he donates all of the proceeds from both the book and DVD of An Inconvenient Truth to environmental causes. He also donated 100% of his Nobel Peace Prize award as well as the salary from his venture capital firm, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers, to the Alliance for Climate Protection. I guess he’s just a nutter since he seems to be doing it for no rational reason. I have to respect him for inventing internet pron, though.
I think it a shame that energy companies (ExxonMobil, for example) and anti-climate-action groups must shower scientists who are willing to argue against climate change with cash, though, just to get the truth out there.
Although the U.S. is only 1.5% of the entire globe, there would be clear signs of what scientists have long predicted (raging wildfires, expanding deserts, changing ecosystems, heatwave deaths, the spread of deadly mosquito-borne diseases, growing dead zones in the oceans, death of healthy trees and other vegetation, coral extinction, etc) if this were true. The idea that a few billion people could alter climate is simply ridiculous, but even if it were true, what so wrong with turning the U.S. into a tropical paradise? Wink Big Smile :bigsmile:

Teach them right and they’ll choose to rescue a shelter dog, rather than contributing to the overpopulation & mass euthanization of dogs by profiting breeders.

I was just trying to be Obvious Man to the rescue, but I guess for some its still not obvious! It’s kind of funny facts like this get turned into politics instantly because the mere existence of the facts tends to discredit a political agenda.

Even the oil companies are on both sides of the issue: pay for “scientists” to say it isnt happening on one hand, and race to exploit the new areas being exposed for drilling on the other…hmmm, actions or words are loudest here? ….

I know I know, Al Gore paid to cause that flying sharknado to happen above, to bogusly prove global warming is happening. His real goal is so that we can cause global cooling and make everyone freeze and stiffen up like him. This would make himself feel more “normal” and fit in. That selfish b*stard!
