Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.
Using records of ships wrecked by Atlantic hurricanes dating as far back as the days of Christopher Columbus, researchers have extended the hurricane record by hundreds of years. The work reveals that hurricane frequency plummeted 75 percent between 1645 and 1715, a time called the Maunder Minimum when the sun dimmed to its lowest recorded brightness…
The number of hurricane-caused shipwrecks during the Maunder Minimum, which makes up a large portion of a period nicknamed the “Little Ice Age,” was less than a third the number of wrecks in the preceding decades. A hurricane slowdown during the solar dim period makes sense, Trouet says. Warm seawater fuels hurricanes. As temperatures dropped around the Maunder Minimum, less heat was available to power storms.
The finding doesn’t mean that global warming will increase hurricane frequency, says Gabriel Vecchi, an oceanographer at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, N.J. While both solar brightness and heat-trapping greenhouse gases cause warming, their effects on hurricanes “aren’t perfect analogs,” he says.
Producers used southern Argentina as a snowy location. Originally the filming was reportedly supposed to wrap by March, 2015, but did not finish up until August, 2015 when it just so happens to be winter in Argentina and summer in Canada. Citing warmer than average temperatures in western North America for one specfic year as dispositive evidence for global warming makes as much sense as citing colder than average temperatures in eastern North America in the same year as evidence for global cooling.
$22 billion of taxpayers’ money . . . the amount that our government pays to stop the “global warming” epidemic.
That comes out to $41,856 every minute.
Or, to put it in perspective, that is twice as much as what our government spends on securing our borders.
