    Extreme Weather & Global Warming - Do you believe? Feeling guilty?

    Over eons of time the Earth has had low ocean levels during the ice ages and high ocean levels during warmer eras. Should USA feel guilty for being the biggest consumer of oil? Or perhaps it is that the hotter tempartures are more due to earth's precession, the ozone hole and bigger solar flares?

    I think the whole issue is being overblown. If you look at all signs, through millions of years, there have been global warming without  it being the fault of mankind. Now if you have to be honest, the real reason for global warming is rather over-population. If you have 2 people in a room, it might be tolerable. Stuff 20 people into the same room, it becomes to hot and intolerable. My take on the main reason for global warming. So nobody needs to be hit with a stick for being at fault. It will happen. There might be a few contributors, but the biggest is the population count...and the breeding escalates....and people take longer to die...it all amounts to an over-stock of people.

    It's hard to say.  An analysis I read on weatherunderground.com, which is a site that is not skeptical of global warming, said that extreme weather events as a whole have not increased in the recent decade.  Perhaps media coverage of these events has increased in our modern world. 

    What has increased is the subcategory of extreme rainfall events.  This is what we should expect in a wamer world in which water is evaporated over the oceans and the warmer air can hold more water vapor and dump it on land.  We are seeing extreme rainfall events at such close time intervals that they are very unsual.

    Earth has gone through many cycles of warm periods followed by cold periods. It's a normal process that the planet seems to go through. The reason for this cycle is outside the control of humans or other inhabitants of the planet. Is the planet getting warmer because of technology? Perhaps. Is there something we can do about it? Probably not.

    Eventually, the Earth will warm to a point where a cold cycle will begin. Nothing we do is going to hasten or delay that - it is a normal process. How we handle the changes brought on by that normal process is more important that what we can do to stop global warming.
