The west coast storm door is open. Every few years the pacific jet stream aligns just-so to allow depressions from the Aleutians to merge with depressions from the south pacific and form a freight train of successive storms that blast right into California. Sitting here getting a bit stir crazy after the third straight day of 40 mile an hour winds with heavy rain. Trees down, crap blowin all over the place, flooding, hail, lightning......

The historical climatology guys say that "modern" CA (meaning the latter 3/4ths of the 20th century) was developed during one of the region's calm & peaceful cycles, and the pendulum is starting to swing back. Increasing stormy weather is a certainty if the pattern holds (they say).

You should have sold your most exposed clifftop ocean view Malibu and Carmel properties a couple years ago, PD. Probably gonna take a bath on 'em now.

That climatic statement is true on a much larger and longer perspective than a portion of a century. The climatology text's and articles I've used over the years indicate that the entire rise of human civilization (and I use the term "civilization" very loosely Shocked ) over perhaps the last 10,000 years has been an unusually calm and predictable period, very untypical of the past several hundred thousand years (and this takes the ice age into account). Even the Little Ice Age and other brief anomalies were nothing compared to past climatic changes and radical swings. Volcanic eruptions were small and singular (in an historical context) and not a single killer asteroid from outer-space to speak of!

It does not bode well for our societies to think that we can always grow wheat in Kansas, or oranges in Florida, or weed in Humboldt County (OK, I'm stretching it there). As a society or as a species, we don't handle changes well. Hell, look how we all howl when tobacco prices go up or our favorite blend is discontinued.
affraid Melt a bit more of the Greenland ice cap, top the surrounding oceans with lighter fresh water (which isn't very good at sinking), cut off the thermohaline circulation and much of Europe would be in an ice age climate in under a decade. We could be inundated with Norwegian boat people!
