WASHINGTON Last year was the eighth warmest year on record, according to
the National Climatic Data Center. The world's temperature in 2008 tied
that of 2001 according to the center, a division of the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration.

Preliminary calculations show the world's average temperature for 2008 was
0.88 degree Fahrenheit above the 20th Century average of 57.0 degrees F.

The ranking means that all of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred
since 1997.

Climate scientists around the world have raised concerns about global
warming caused by the so-called greenhouse effect in which chemicals,
largely generated by human activity, trap solar radiation.

Researchers fear far-reaching effects ranging from changing storm
patterns, damage to crops and wildlife, droughts to spread of disease.

The climate center noted that since 1880, the annual combined global land
and ocean surface temperature has increased at a rate of 0.09 degree F
(0.05 degree C) per decade and the rate has increased over the past 30
years.

NASA, which uses a slightly different method of calculating temperatures,
has rated 2008 as the ninth warmest on record

An Australian news station debunked that picture of the stranded polar bears
on an icefloe - the picture was taken during the warm months when it was
supposed to look like that.

Plus, polar bears can swim for miles and miles. They wouldn't have a problem
getting back to land.

It's unfortunate that there are loons on both sides completely obfuscating
what's going on.

Science question: Given conservation of energy, if we experience a colder
than usual winter in Location A, where did the heat go? (It didn't disappear
into space.)

You were doing OK up until the last sentence. There has been warming,
but the "due to" is still unresolved. Also, the warming may have
peaked, we may already be changing to a cooling period.

This was established by a blue ribbon panel of scientists entrusted by the
US Congress to investigate the matter in *1957*. Everything since then has
been: "Yes, it is." "No, it isn't." "Yes, it is." "No, it isn't."

I don't care how many "no, it isn'ts" get thrown in this endless back and
forth, mankind's C02 output has long been known to be affecting the
situation.

As for what will happen, that's unclear.

Contribute to the situation by continuing to emit heavier-than-air
pollutants is stupid.

What is this "air" of which you speak?

Think of CO2 as plant food.

More than the average observer understands.

I know they do. But as I understand it, there are variables in play that
could cause things to go one of two main directions. Ice Age is not
considered out of the question, although current trends indicate that the
poles will eventually melt away, sea levels will rise, and there will be
tropical type of warming. I try to read about this as much as I can. Sure, I
could be wrong, but I'm actually a fairly unbiased observer. I know how to
be objective, and objectively, it seems most people are in denial of what's
going on because it would impact their current lifestyle if it turned out to
be true.

My current understanding is that the current cold winter is related to the
thawing of the polar ice seen in recent years. A lot of "cold" has been
released into the atmosphere and is filling the low-pressure zones with
colder than usual air. Meanwhile, the high-pressure zones are warmer than
usual. There's an equilibrium that needs to be maintained after all.
Interaction between the high and low pressure zones (winds and storms) will
cause the difference to lessen. Look at the wild flow of the Pacific
jetstream. It's going way up North into the polar region and then dropping
straight back South, causing the sub-zero freezing. Those finding solace in
the cold (from the false belief it disproves global warming) don't even
realize that the jet stream rarely sweeps along this path, bringing the cold
in not just from Canada, but from much farther North than usual.

Also, we are in a cooling cycle, but not in terms of long-term cycle, just
in terms of the short-term, twelve-year El Nino cycle. If *that* cycle
holds, the ocean heating starts again next year. (1998 was the last peak.)

For all we know, the North Pole will be free of ice within the next few
years.

The air we breath. Approx. 30% Oxygen, 70% nitrogen. Aka, "the atmosphere."

> Think of CO2 as plant food.

I do. The plants aren't in any danger that I know of. But google around for
satellite photos of deforestation. The Earth's ability to absorb CO2 via
plant life isn't going up, it isn't even staying even, it's going down. Now,
if we were planting plants and trees in the clear areas they could easily
take up the extra CO2 we emit that would be one thing, but that's not what
we're doing. I said a long time ago on this newsgroup that there is
technology available that would allow us to recycle paper, use the
by-product to clean polluted lakes and rivers, and use *that* by-product as
fertilizer to grow vegetation in arid areas.

We have the power to make the Sahara *green*.

What do we do instead? We cut down half of Madagascar to feed our paper
needs.

Anyway, your argument would hold more weight if the amount of plantlife
wasn't going down.

Dry air contains roughly 78.08% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, by
volume. This accounts for 99.96 % of the entire atmospheric gasses. CO2
makes up a mere 0.038% with trace gases accounting for the other 0.02%.



That's 3.8 one-hundredths of one percent that CO2 accounts for. At best a
tiny fraction. Yet far tinier fluctuations in this tiny amount are supposed
to destroy the climate and wipe us all out - lol. Why do all of these
'brilliant' scientist make such insane claims?



Well there are two principle reasons. One, they know that 99.999% of the
population are clueless so they can more or less get away with it. Two, CO2
is the only atmospheric component that man has any bearing on at all, so
that must be it.



Three would be because reducing man's contribution will destroy vital
industries and lead us toward some form of elitist utopian society. But
first we must all go socialist. Then communist. Then ? well nothing. Get the
point?



Maybe Carson is wrong. I'm starting to lean more toward the fact that you're
just stupid. Of course you have to be stupid to want to be a commie anyway.



snip...



a lot of global superstorm idiocy...


Besides - the global superstorm can only happen if we reduce our global
warming issues and thereby breech the tipping point that will trigger the
next ice age - duh. Talk about useful idiots - MUWHAHAHAHA!

The atmosphere is not composed of dry air, and water vapour is the single
biggest contributor to the greenhouse effect. Not a promising start to a GW
post.

Well, idiot, the fact that that tiny concentration of CO2 renders the
atmosphere totally opaque for all practical purposes across the absorption
spectrum of CO2 helps. Further, the flunctuations in the concentration are
large as a percentage of the total CO2.

You mean other than methane, CFCs, bromides, nitrous oxide, ozone and
hydrocarbons? What's it like being part of the 99.999%?

Have any reputable links? Any scientific proof at all? When the CO2 lie is
shot down the global warming imbeciles always trout out the ol' water vapor
lie. Odd how so much of the world is currently experiencing significant
drought conditions yet you morons claim that atmospheric water vapor is bad.
Next.

Yet 20 years from now when nothing significant outside of historically
normal climate fluctuations has occurred you will do the right thing and

Interestingly enough, I agree with you. Your point is truly excellent.
3.8 hundreths of a percent cannot possibly do any damage. As proof, I
offer the example of nerve gas... umm, nevermind. How about Chlorine?
Nevermind. Carbon monoxide? Nevermind. Wait, what point was I trying to
make again?

Are all canadians this stupid or only the failed poker pro's? Lets see, how
about this. If you think lethal concentrations of carbon monoxide are less
by volume than atmospheric CO2 levels then you are an idiot. If you can
compare CO2 and its effect on climate models to nerve gas and its effect on
human health then you are a retard. Clearly you were lying when you claimed
to have honestly scored 135 on an on line IQ test. Ummm, you did re-up in
the canadian army right? What a fucking moron - lol. Watch out - here come
some U.S. fighter bombers. They might get you. Duck and cover...

Carbon monoxide is a significantly toxic gas and has no odor or color. It
is the most common type of fatal poisoning in many countries.

Exposures can lead to significant toxicity of the central nervous system
and heart. Following poisoning, long-term sequelae often occurs.

Carbon monoxide can also have severe effects on the fetus of a pregnant
woman. Symptoms of mild poisoning include headaches and dizziness at
concentrations less than 100 ppm.

Concentrations as low as 667 ppm can cause up to 50% of the body's
haemoglobin to be converted to carboxy-haemoglobin (HbCO).

Carboxy-haemoglobin is quite stable but this change is reversible.
Carboxy-haemoglobin is ineffective for delivering oxygen, resulting in
some body parts not receiving oxygen needed. As a result, exposures of
this level can be life-threatening.

So nice of you to avoid the other points, but as you can clearly see,
concentrations of CO about a quarter the size of CO2 in the air cause
nausea, dizziness, etc.

Concentrations of about 1.5 times the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is
considered fatal if you are not able to reverse the process.

Concentrations of H2O in the pool greater than the volume of a teacup are
also considered fatal if you are not able to reverse the process. WTF is you
inane point?

snip - much idiocy

Your comparison of the climatic change effects of CO2 to adverse human
health effects of various toxic gases is moronic. If you are unable to
reverse the process it will result in normal people calling you a moron.

As if the phrase about the melting poles 'releasing cold' into the

21% oxygen, as anyone who stayed awake in high school science would know.

I even gave a wiki citation:

"The Earth's atmosphere (or air) is a layer of gases surrounding the planet
Earth that is retained by the Earth's gravity. Dry air contains roughly (by
volume) 78.08% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.038% carbon dioxide,
and trace amounts of other gases."

Small changes in any of the gases in the atmosphere might have "significant"
repercussions, but there is no one that contributes to this newsgroup that
has a clue of what might or might not be "significant." We all have
opinions about what others might say about what is or is not "significant"
... but none of us really know.

The presumptions of confidence sometimes exhibited seems to be unsupported
by any reasonable appreciation of the evidence. Some opinions seem more
reasonably constructed than others, but the decibel level of the rant is not
particularly impressive as a measure of the "significance" of those
opinions.

Solar activity contributes massively to global warming . In fact this
place is warmed by the sun. The present solar cycle is due to peak in
2012. At that point we should experience cooling. Eris, the name NASA gave
to the planet that is presently rocketing through our solar system
perturbs the sun and all heavenly bodies it nears. All planets have been
warming due to the solar activity increase. Another gravitational force we
are experiencing is that we are entering our galaxy's central plane.
Presently we have roughly the same gravity on all sides of us. As we
advance, we will have more gravity behind us and lessening amounts in
front of us. Basically we are as gravitationally balanced as the earth
ever is. In 2012 we are in the middle and will have less gravity ripping
us in different directions in an unequal fashion. The Mayans figured this
out. Bad gravity causes agitation. The worst gravitational activity ended
Nov.19, 2008. The day before the stock market started coming back from its
lowest point in my lifetime, if you adjust for inflation etc.

If this were true wouldn't this planet still be a sphere of liquid rock and

I never once said that energy can't be lost to space. I merely asserted that
this was not the answer to the question "Where's the global warming?" It's
in the high pressure zones, and the low pressure zones are that much lower
as a result. At the same time, more and more powerful storms are resulting
in the areas where high and low pressure zones interact. This is all very
simple. You don't have to be one of the dumb ones that pretends not to get
it.

Right, Tad get a clue. Global warming is a crock of shit being put forward
by the communist\socialist imbeciles to try to force us to shrink our
economy to the same levels, about half, as current communist\socialist
countries. Its the only way they will ever be able to compete. Hell, it
ain't Al Gore's baby for nothing. Your not a commie are you Tad? Come on
tell the truth. You claim to be way to smart to be this stupid. What the
fuck would you guys say if there were another dust bowl decade. Shezzze.

I'll tell you what, you stick with the global warming myth and I'll argue
that the whole thing is a illuminati conspiracy to hit the tipping point
into the next ice age. By reducing environmental and climate issues that are
said to lead to global warming we are really going to bring about another
ice age. This will result in the reduction of the world population from 6.5
Bil. to 250 Mil. I know its crazy but prove that it ain't so.

Some of what is spread among you all regarding me is total unsubstantiated
rubbish. I claim I've been smeared by idiots who have never met me (Carson
has never met me) and that my reputation has been injured by unsubstantiated
rumors among people who hardly know me. I think it's a study in how cliques
work more than anything regarding mental illness on my part. If Carson is
your expert source for information on me, then you're a bigger dumbfuck than
I thought.

I find it funny to log on and deal with a world in which I am most decidedly
insane, only to log off and return to a world in which I have a successful
career and am considered in expert at what I do. Where I have friends and
people have no animosity toward me. Where friends ask me over for dinner or
drop by for a football game, and act like reasonable people.

In the real world I actually do get laid once in awhile. In the online
world, I'm some fucked up stalker who would have to rape to get some.

You people are ridiculous. You're the ones engaging in delusional reality.

Does this answer why I'm not interested in attending BARGE?

Carson has been known to be wrong but you are a global warming nitwit and
that can only mean one of two things. Either you are a loon who is desperate
for attention or a commie\useful idiot. Err, you do not seem all that stupid
so the loon thing gains cred. You might want to work on that.

Carson is fairly and at times demonstrateably bright. Then again so are you.
But both of you are libtards of the worst stripe and that tends to
overshadow your other achievements. You might want to work on that too. No
amount of whining or bitching is going to make global warming or the coming
'global superstorm,' occur. The worst that you guys can hope for is to
destroy the economy and the future of your grandchildren. Not that any of
you doofuses have children.

You are a die hard global warming idiot. Nuff said. The fact that you don't

the matter is where you and your comrades fail. Not that standing up for
communism\socialism would allow you to win but there you go. You might just
want to try being a loyal American and cease adhering to our sworn enemies.
That would be a start.

Carson and others are geniuses who pretend to have it all figured out by
reading Usenet. He presumes to diagnose me when he's not a doctor and has
never met me. Even the doctors in the group attempt to diagnose me without
even meeting me. How would the AMA feel about that? I'm a bit of character
and maybe a bit eccentric, but I'm no head case. I'm a completely functional
human being raising kids and working at a job. You've been able to see it
for what it is. Others live in a fantasy land where they're not happy unless
they're running someone down.

That's the real story, folks.

If any of you have ever been passed, or are ever passed, rumors about me
from these rgp people, you should be highly skeptical and question whether
that person even knows what they're talking about. Even the people who play
with me live don't buy this shit.

PASTA WITH LOBSTER AND SHRIMP

1 tbsp. salt
1 1/2 lb. live lobster
1 bay leaf
2 slices lemon
2 slices onion
1 stalk celery with leaves
3 peppercorns
2 sprigs fresh parsley
1 lb. raw shrimp

SAUCE:

6 tbsp. lightly salted butter
2 tbsp. minced onion
5 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 c. reserved seafood stock
1 c. chicken stock
1 1/2 c. light cream
1/2 c. dry white wine
1/4 c. fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
3 to 4 drops hot pepper sauce
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper

PASTA:

1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. oil
1 lb. vermicelli spaghetti
3 tbsp. light salted butter
3 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley for garnish

1. To prepare seafood, bring about 6 quarts water to a boil; add salt,
lobster, bay leaf, lemon, onion, celery, peppercorns, and parsley. Bring to
a second boil; then simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove lobster and any scum
from stock. Add shrimp and simmer about 4 minutes longer, until shrimp are
pink. Remove shrimp and reserve 1 cup seafood stock. Shell lobster and
shrimp; cut lobster meat in uniform chunks. Cover and set aside.

2. To make sauce, melt butter; add onion and cook 2 to 3 minutes, but
do not brown. Stir in flour. Gradually add reserved seafood stock, chicken
stock, cream and wine. Cook, stirring over low heat about 10 minutes, until
smooth and thick. Stir in cheese, mustard, hot pepper sauce, brandy, if
desired, salt and pepper; cook over low heat another 10 minutes, stirring
frequently. Add seafood; simmer gently until heated through; keep warm.

3. To make pasta, bring large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and
oil, then pasta, stirring vigorously. Cook pasta al dente; drain thoroughly;
return to pot and add butter and Parmesan cheese. Toss quickly until pasta
is coated with melted butter and cheese. Turn onto warm platter; top with
seafood and sauce; sprinkle with chopped parsley.

TIPS: Crab meat or scallops can be substituted for lobster and/or
shrimp. Do not parboil these as in step 1, but add raw to the cream sauce at
the end of step 2. Large crayfish are another good substitute. Bottled clam
juice and/or chicken broth will replace the cup of reserved seafood stock.

What do you know about it? You're so stupid that you have fallen for this
"moderate", "middle-of-the-road", kinda shit. In fact, people like you are
the target audience for that line of thinking. You are essentially
only materialistic and have no principle.

It's getting to the point that things have become so polarized that a truly
moderate position is starting to be viewed by either side as quite radical.

What I know about it is that it's an amusing quote that applies to every
single conversation on RGP, and has nothing to do with global warming at
all. I'm sorry you think I was commenting on global warming. I was
merely commenting on the quote as I've applied it to a new context.

Don't talk down to me, you plebian. That was YOUR interpretation, that I
was talking about global warming. I was not. I was talking about the
general theme of your outlook, that shoulder-shrugging aire of nonchalance
that so characterizes your generation. Americans have sacrificed for your

Is this a joke or is this a troll? This is like asking, "I coasted in my
car at 60 MPH for 100 miles, but I still used gas. Where did all of the
speed go? (It didn't disappear into space.)"

Exactly! Same with "daylight savings time" . When we turn our clocks back,
where does the daylight go?
It didn't just disappear in to space! Personally, I think Bush and Cheney
stole it because they didn't want it to fall in to the hands of Obama and
the Democrats. Plus its part of a vast right wing conspiracy to keep it
dark at Obama's coranation.

If you started in LA, zoomed out to space, rolled your car forward 1 inch
then zoomed back out, would you be in NY?

Hah, no of course not. My job today, as with every day, is to try and

It's been a wonderful -15 (high) to -30 (low) the last 5 days. It
currently -15 with a windchill making it feel like -30.

oh yeah that's all in C. Below the the F

It's been a wonderful 5 to -31 that last couple days. It currently 5 with

Well, not really for the negative temps, right? I mean, 20 F is the same
as -7 C, and -7 sounds much colder than 20.

Yes I would kill for 20C right now but my nuts would ascend if I was
wearing the same clothes in 20F

It isn't. -40F is way colder than -40C.

It's not a 1:1 relationship, but 0C = 32F. We're currently at -10F with
wind gusts creating a -40F windchill. By tomorrow it's supposed to be
22F, which is an insane jump.

i know I used a site to convert it. A good rule is to subtract 30 and
divide by 2 to get the C from a F number. It's usually pretty close.

- 10 to 22 is HUGE.

There's a way to do it that's just as easy and more accurate.

Going from F to C, the usual formula is:

C = (F-32) * 5/9

Or, you can subtract 32, divide that result by 2, and add 10% of that result
back on. (You fudge for this addition by subtracting 2 from 32 and using 30
instead.)

Dividing by 2 and finding 10% are both easy operations to do in one's head.

Example: 50F = (18/2 + 0.9)C = 9.9C

There's a very small fudge factor when going this direction. (Approx. 10% of
the 0.9 term, which you can add on again if you want even more accuracy.)

Going from C to F, the usual formula is:

F = C*9/5 + 32

Or you can double C, subtract 10%, and then add 32.

Example, 22C = (2*22-4.4)F + 32F = 39.6F + 32F = 71.6F

When you go this direction the result is exact.

You can check this method at:

WTF should I care what the temperature would be in Celsius? I don't even

Up here in Canada that's the measurement we use.

Fairly simple scale. 0 is the freezing point of water. 100 is the boiling
point.

Thanks, when I need the valiance to be less 1 or 2 degrees then I will use
your method.

Anyone in the St. George, Utah area? I'm looking for how the season is
going there. I am flying in on Feb 26th.

That's a good rough rule of thumb but it falls apart fast if you need to be
even close to accurate. In your example of -15 C, for instance, if you
subtract 30 and divide by 2, you'd get 45 degrees F, and that's not even
close to the real temperature, windchill factor figured in or not.

-15 -30 = 15 /2 =7.5

15 - 30 = -15 /2 = -7.5

0002 x 35,000 = 7

What's great is based on 2 different online calcs (I'm too lazy to do it
manually, lol) -40F = -40C. I suppose when it gets that freakin cold they
figure it doesn't much matter, lol.

It's -10F here with wind chill at -25F. On a positive note, we may get all

the winter.
