Beavah

Global Climate Change (AGW)

Wow, there is a connection of this thread clear back to "Beavah" in 2013.  I often wonder what happened to him.  I always found his often tongue in cheek method of comment refreshing, yet also very direct and on point.

 

In relation to the current discussion, it occurs to me that this may be a good place to simply "let go, and let God".

Thanks.  For those that knew/know, that is pretty high praise, and I am not sure I meet that level.  Still, I appreciate it.

We are.  God never intended for us to be here forever.

That depends on how you read St.John's Apocolypse. It ends with the City of God, a renewed Jerusalem descending on the renewed earth. We're stuck with this planet, even in the resurrection. That's a good thing.

The latest NASA/NOAA report, including links to gory details:

https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-noaa-analyses-reveal-2019-second-warmest-year-on-record

Quote

Globally, 2019 temperatures ... were 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit (0.98 degrees Celsius) warmer than the 1951 to 1980 mean, according to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

One of those links https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/global/201913 shows that we in North America are a little late to the warming party ...

Quote

North America was the only continent that did not have an annual temperature that ranked among its three highest on record. Overall, North America's temperature was 0.90°C (1.62°F) above the 1910–2000 average, marking the 14th warmest year in the 110-year continental record. The yearly temperature for North America has increased at an average rate of 0.13°C (0.23°F) per decade since 1910; however, the average rate of increase is more than twice as great (+0.29°C / +0.52°F per decade) since 1981.

In a link to the press conference slides https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/briefings/20200115.pdf, we have a note about Alaska's bumper crop of +6 deg F warmer this decade than the previous 8-decade average. We have been spared loss of life, but doing so in the US wasn't cheap. The last slide in that set shows that in the past four consecutive years we've endured more billion-dollar disasters per year than any time except 2011.
