    SB,

    Surprise. The left wing chamber has not jumped in with a barrage of climate change/global warning posts. :)

    See jed's post. Heh guys...its is summer here right now. 

    May I add thank goodness for ice cubes, air conditioning, trees that shade you, canopies for oudoor parties, ice cold watermelon, etc.

    Also wonderment at children under 10 who can bounce for ever in this heat and humidity while the adults supervise in the coolest clothes they could find at children's outdoor birthday parties. Was I ever that young?

    It's called a heatwave. They happen often...especially in summer.

    No, really, it IS your wife's SUV. Ask her to get rid of that thing please.

    Mini cooper now has a van. No really they do. Got to be better than the SUV. :)

    But it's not a heat wave for "the world", is it? Saying "the world" actually makes you seem ignorant of how the seasons operate. Just saying.

     



    OMG.....I wasn't saying the entire world was currently experiencing a heat wave. Was pointing out that this current heat wave isn't the first one ever experienced on the entire planet. Try to keep up.

    It`s my wedding, funeral, and Saturday-night-out car.  Very big, very black, a rolling carbon footprint.

    Yeah, that's my other car.

    Heat waves happen.  But we broke a record for the highest June temperatures in the U.S.  And it won't be the last record to fall this year.  And wildfire season in CA started in May.  And we just saw a Hurricane hit the New England Coast and cause miles of coastal flooding.  Before that we saw an earthquake in PA, and a tornado in up-state New York, and a blizzard in October.

    These things happen - one of these things, every fifty years or so.  Forget the party lines; forget global warming; forget the economic arguments.  Let's just take a baby step here and agree that the weather's getting weirder.

    How long should we sit back and just say that "the weather is getting weird"?  Thats what we've been doing for decades now.

    Its not "weirdness" that is causing the problem.  Its the heat trapping CO2 concentration in the atmosphere thats the problem....and its at the highest ppm level in millions of years.

    We can deflect with this humor, but this is not just summer weather, or weird weather but it is far beyond that.

    This scary weather should scare us. And we need to drop party lines, all our labels and get serious before the window closes to be able to do something about the causes of this "scary" weather.

    What do you propose we do? I hear many saying we need to do something but no one ever says what that something should be. What REAL solutions do you propose we do?

    There is really only so much we can do. We should be good caretakers of the earth simply because it's the moral thing to do. The US has something like 5 percent of the worlds population..yet generates just over 20 percent of the worlds trash. Surely..we can reduce the amount of trash we generate. Unfortunately..one of the biggest trash generators is convenience.

    Expanding recycling..even if it included mandating it would go a long way. The reality is everyone can make a small difference..walk instead of drive when possible...drive an economical vehicle when possible. Recognize the difference between a need and a want.

    It's something..but the reality is that there is little we can do to manipulate weather patterns and solar cycles.
