    Yea, I told him to aerate it to minimize some of the stress with future cold snaps.
    Even then it's not fool proof.

    I'm not convinced on the man caused GW stuff.
    Seems to be a bit out there.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Neither could I, I cringe every time we get a southerly wind that brings up the cold weather, which is why I don't think AGW is to blame.

    Re: Cold empties Bolivian rivers of fish

    I only posted teh article cause of the level of cold induced devastation. You can't find a Wx story these days that doesn't take sides in the AGW mess, so... this was a "Global Warming caused Bolivian Cooling!" angle. Whatev's, lots of **** died man.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I am no climate scientist but it seems that the jet stream can cause these wild weather fluctuations. To be honest though the following article did not directly blame global warming for the change in the jet stream, rather the influence of recent re-awoken solar activity.

    Then you obviously do not understand the basic premise of climate change - could you please explain what you THINK it might be (she says respectfully fully expecting to be either ignored or insulted in return)

    I'd waste my time I bet explaining that for ten years I was an AerographersMate in the US Navy, so my understanding of Meteorological processes is as solid as they come.

    How about: Climate Changes.

    That's it. You want to know why? Variations in the Earth's Orbit, output from the Sun those at the two BIGGIES, after that comes a wide array of gases and particulate matter in the air. Man's impact destabilizing the climate? HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHH AHAHAHAHA

    No, I was thinking more about the (mis) concept that "global warming" means that everywhere is getting hotter all the time.

    Me personally? I do not listed to what people claim as their "qualifications" as I have no way of verifying if you are what you say or some precocious 12 year old with Mummy's computer

    So, let us address the the orbital change idea - have you any proof that that is currently influencing the climate

    I seem to remember you saying you were some kind of weather expert in the Navy.

    I guess you were exaggerating because any expert will tell you that all weather is a function of heat. And this was caused by man-made global warming.

    Is this your way of coming clean and admitting that in all those old posts you really weren't the expert you pretended to be?
