Hey Canuck, Basking in Global Warming?

Iowa is going though our weekly blizzard. Make your hockey rink yet?

Have often wondered why Iowans would go to all the trouble of having a fishing contest when they throw back everything but the bullheads.

If co2 levels have been rising since 1950 why were we being warned of the coming ice age in the 1970s?

Re: Hey Canuck, Basking in Global Warming?

Guess we are. Here it is last half of January and I still have not had to clear any snow. Most years I have been out half a dozen times or more before end of December and this aft was the first day I was able to go to the woodlot and it still is not frozen very much but have a light cover of snow to help keep things clean.

Last year I did not clear any snow until January 7

Not cold enough to freeze ice for a rink. Used to make one for our kids and for our grandchildren when they were young but no chance to keep ice long enough to make it worth while in recent years.

From woodlot I can see snowmobile trail through neighbours and I see the club has not even put up signs this year.

Last year they never road on trail at all

2 years ago it was open for 1 day

3 years ago they had the trail open for a week or 10 days and it was so bad many sleds opted to cross our land illegally to find a little snow instead of the mud on the trail.

Something is changing and I accept what science says

3 years of open winter weather and you`re proclaiming that is proof of global climate change?  Could be, it has to start somewhere as it did 600 million years ago or 2.8 billion years ago or any of the other 100`s of climate changes in the earth`s 4 billion year history where there were no, none, zero humans.

That`s right 3020, in the 70`s they were scaring the bejeebers out of us school kids about a ice age...and I forget what it was we were supposed to do about preventing that imminent disaster.  Perhaps we did such a good job it slammed us into global warming.   Smiley Happy

Spoiler: atmospheric CO2 levels have been rising since the 1950s. Which one might expect given that we're releasing a million or so years' of sequestered carbon (held in Bruce Jenner's vagina) every year.

I doubt that you'll regard that as throwing your latest straw man inversion in the tub grinder, but anyway.

How much of that co2 is man made? Why did it go from causing the cooling to causing the warming? How much of the earth's warming is caused by the sun?
