Poisonous Gas and The Little Ice Age

with 2 comments

It has come to my attention that some mundane slow witted individuals have yet to realize there is a correlation between carbon dioxide and the Earth’s climate. After personally, being involved in climate research over the past 2 to 3 years I have read many articles on the subject. The most convincing arguments are based on carbon sequestration in ice cores.

Let’s take a look on how carbon dioxide correlated with the Little Ice age. The Little Ice Age were a grouping of 3 climatic shifts between 1650 and 1850. h

Please read on for a more convincing argument.

Climate Change = Hogwash?

with 7 comments

For some reason people refuse to believe that greenhouse gases are causing the Earth’s climate to change. I have firm beliefs that the Earth’s climate is becoming more intense in terms of heat and cold. Our winter’s are getting colder and our summer’s are getting warmer.

More specifically, I’m writing this in response to What’s up with that?‘s post on climate trends being recognized in the early post-industrial era of the 1920’s and 1930’s. I am a geologist. I have some schooling and first hand research that affirms the climate change hypotheses.

Don’t be stupid. It’s happening now. If you are under the age of 30. This will affect you in your lifetime.

New Scientist has a great informational site.

Rain Making Bacteria?

leave a comment »

Researches from LSU, Montana, and France have found evidence that meteorologists are still WAY off.

Christner’s team examined precipitation from global locations and demonstrated that the most active ice nuclei — a substrate that enhances the formation of ice — are biological in origin. This is important because the formation of ice in clouds is required for snow and most rainfall. Dust and soot particles can serve as ice nuclei, but biological ice nuclei are capable of catalyzing freezing at much warmer temperatures. If present in clouds, biological ice nuclei may affect the processes that trigger precipitation.
