  1. Looks like the glaciers in the Cascades will start to expand much earlier than expected, so much for Al Gore’s comment of snow fall becoming history.

  2. Earth is space. What we as humans know about the mechanics of space and its relationship to climate change on the anthill of earth is nothing. The only certainty that can be concluded is that climate change exists. It appears that we have entered into a new climate change era now as evidenced by higher velocities of extreme flooding, heat waves, droughts, volcanic activity and earthquakes.

    This is happening now, and it seems to be activating as a group, catastrophe-world wide. The burning of fossil fuels, or increased CO2, or Human activity is not the cause of these events. For those of you that believe it is. Try this reality check.

    Step outside in a strong wind and try to piss into the wind. You only need to try this once and your mind will instantly clear. The power of nature and space is King.

    The link below is very educational on these events.
