As far as Global Warming, I hear it's in remission.  Very Happy

But people don't speak that way in this instance: they don't say, for example, "...well, so much for climate change." They say, " ...well, so much for global warming." "Climate change" in this context doesn't make sense. Obviously the writer is a true believer being careful to use the "correct" term, at the expense of sounding a bit contrived.

Also took me a second to realize its seriousness (or lack there of).  It could have been an Onion article. Laughing 

But.....it does hit to a point that I harp on constantly in my classes, (just ask my students!).  Global climate change, the much more accurate term than "global warming", does not mean every place on Earth will get warmer throughout all the seasons.  Overall, our planet will get warmer, but a warmer world's major problem we'll have to deal with, at least in the short run, is more heat=more energy=more extremes.  Hotter summers and in some locations, colder winters, bigger floods and hurricanes and tornado outbreaks, but also bigger droughts, bigger snow storms (remember, to create snow you need heat), and in some instances, colder outbreaks.  Some interesting scenarios also predict a warming northern hemisphere will "force" the next ice advance in our "current" ice age (some climatologists believe we're still in the Plasticine, just a brief, warm inter-glacial period!).  Look at the research on how glacial melt, primarily from Greenland, could shut down the heat flow of the North Atlantic Drift and plunge Europe and perhaps the world into the next ice advance.

Even without a changing climate, the overall climate over the past ten thousand years on Earth has been comparatively mild and constant.  As this is the time when we moved from paleolithic hunters and gathers to farmers and urban dwellers, and our entire recorded history falls within this period, so most humans tend to think this is the way it will always be.  I think we're in for some pretty interesting extremes.

Lecture is over, and yes, this will be on the exam.  affraid

[[furiously taking notes, panic setting in]]

Nice explanation, though. I appreciate the clarity.

Global warming?
does that phrase presuppose a premise that there is a correct temperature for the earth?
Hmmmmmmm?
If approximately 70% of the earth's population lives on or near the equator and given that the growing season there is 24/7-365, could one assume that, that region is the correct temperature?
Hmmmmmmmmmmm?
I remember in the early 1960s Playboy magazine and Hugh Hefner were trying very hard to make selling pornography look respectable, of course we all bought Playboy for the ?depth? of its intellectual content. They had a series of mgazine interviews with ?Dr.? Paul Erlich. The good Doctor asserted that by the end of the 196os all of the grasses and cereal crops globally would be gone and the earth would enter into a new global ice age by 1970, no science just: "...Doctor Ehrlic say..." Well it didn't happen; that didn't bother Dr. Ehrlich, Playboy just sold a lot more smut, and he changed his figures and said that we were going into an age of Global Warming!
Hmmmmmmmmmm?
So what is it Freeze or Fry?
Then we had the leading experts? admit before Congress that they "cooked the books" [changed the data] when it didnpt go to support their narrative? and now a number if them have been subpoenaed by Congress?
"...Holy Moly Sapphire there's a whole lotta' science goin' on out there...."
