    I’ll drink to that …


    Spent a very “happy” St. Pat’s Day once in Portland, Oregon – also on a Sunday. Yes, I can remember the experience … just.

    There were actual patches of grass appearing last week. Now there is just as much snow as before the melt!

    We have about 3 feet of white $#!* (GoldenRoya, did I spell it right?) And my electronic thermometer says 0F (-18C). And the forecast for the first day of Spring is a low of 0F! Spring will be late.

    I spell it “white $#!+.”
    We’re supposed to get 1-3" of it tonight in the Hershey, Pennsylvania area tonight, and not get to normal temperatures until April.
    Quite a contrast to last year, when we saw temperatures in the 80s in March!

    This has been a mild early spring. The last 8 years have been mostly record cold. In 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012, the Pacific High didn’t form until mid july, meaning that winter rains/snow ran for two more months than usual. The effects on crops and wildlife has not been good. Hoping for a year more like those of the 1980s when it wasn’t unusual to have 60s and 70s in march/april and sunshine from march to october. Admittedly, the lack of water was a drag, but this used to be a desert. When I was in 1-12, most years were dry and sunny, with an average of 200 days of sunshine. Last year, mold was actually a problem on the “high desert” after four years of wet and cold.
    .
    The four years mentioned above had arctic fronts about every 2 to 3 weeks and the temps would plummet. Affected crops throughout oregon. A freeze warning on the west side every two or three weeks. The cold kept the plants from ripening. A couple years, no blackberries in the cascades. jsut too much cold and rain for too long. Last years cascades blueberries were late, half the bushes had nothing, and the ones that did were half-size.

    That’s why climatologists realized that the term “Global Warming” was misleading and changed it to the much more accurate “Climate Change”.
     
    Regardless of what deniers like you want to believe, what they predicted was hotter summers in some places, colder winters in others, frequent flooding rains in places that never got flooded, unexpected and lenghty draughts, etc. That’s all happening and even you (@Nabuquduriuzhur) are reporting some of this (record cold weathers in Oregon).
     
    The term “Global Warming” comes from the fact that the net result of the wacky weather is a small increase in temperature. But as I said, that term is misleading and thus now avoided.

    I have no qualms about the earth warming, but I do about it being man made. Historical evidence over the past four thousand years show a warming and cooling trend, roughly a thousand year cycle. Right now we are in the warming trend.

    Eight hundred years ago, the Vikings settled and successfully farmed in Greenland. It is still too cold to farm currently in Greenland, thus we still have a bit of warming up to do to match historical trends.

    It’s too bad that we can’t live at least 500 years more. Then we would know if it really is “Global warming”, or something else. Or, maybe there will be an earthquake in the middle of the country, and the Great Lakes will merge with the Mississippi river, and flood the middle of the country. Who knows?

    There is also a question about the speed of climate change. If it is slow enough, the life forms have a chance to adapt, becoming more heat- or cold-, drought- or wet-resistant, for example. But if it is too fast, many creatures don’t have time to adapt, and will face much more stress and possibly go extinct.

    There is evidence that this shift is going much faster than past shifts. Well, except for some of the climate catastrophes, like “the Great Dying”
