Well, I was going to post a picture of how wonderful SoCal weather is right now, but uploading/posting pictures isn't as easy as the old board.

So we'll start with this:

Global Temperature Update

Things seem to be delayed about two or three weeks this year.  Corn was not knee high by the 4th of July.  Lightening bugs have just started showing up.  Scapes on the garlic in early July instead of early June.  All these things indicate that a new ice age is imminent.

Some record flooding going on in NE Illinois and SE Wisconsin right now.

It was a challenge to get to Kenosha yesterday. Most of the E-W roads in Illinois were closed due to overtopping. The bridges are higher in Wisconsin.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

TEMPERATURE READINGS PLUNGE AFTER AUSTRALIA’S BUREAU OF METEOROLOGY ORDERS END TO ‘TAMPERING’ http://www.climatedepot.com/2017/08/04/temperatures-plunge-after-australias-bureau-of-meteorology-orders-fix/


As one comment on the story suggests, it's more proof that climate change is indeed man made.

Kind of interesting reading about winter in July.  In any event, sounds unusually warm.  Almost as if there might be something going on ... :)

One issue I see with climate change is nuts and bolts, e.g., how do enough fast enough to make much difference. 


We could implement a shift to nuclear power in 15 years or so for electricity (globally) but that won't happen.  The rate at which more wind and solar can contribute from a very low base is simply not fast enough even if we through money at it.


If we went to zero carbon today, globally, we'd still have significant climate change, according to the various models.  If every country met the Paris targets, the reduction in global temperatures would be rather small, again using the models.


I see politicians signing agreements because that's what they do, but real tangible progress to reducing carbon to me looks like something that won't happen fast enough to "stop" these trends.  The one thing that might intercept and make a difference would be if ITER works and we can somehow developed practicable fusion reactors in a decade, but that also looks unlikely.

"Late Saturday night, the streak of 55 consecutive dry days at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport ended with 0.02" inches measured. Rainfall continued throughout the pacific northwest Sunday morning. The previous record of 51 days was set in 1951."

The climate will change regardless of human interference, it always has, always will.  The rate of change from human activity is difficult to quantify.  The actual change has been less than most models show, although the rate of change has increased since the industrial revolution.
