Global Warming is Cool

Updated on February 10, 2013

Here it is December 2012 in Lancaster County Pennsylvania and it's sixty degrees out. I had to take off my long-johns and put on my shorts. Opened the windows and back door. Isn't that wonderful?

This is like Atlanta weather, where I left. They had great weather there, one of their many attributes, and my Daughter was born there. Between fifty and eighty degrees all year long. A little snow flurries around Christmas and that was it with the white stuff and the cold. Very cool in my book. Maybe one day I can lay in the sun in January, like I did there. We got snow a couple days ago, that's sufficient for the holidays.

I dread winters in the north east when I was a teen here. Sure the snow was fun, fun up to a point, then after I found the weather boring and depressing. One can only do so much with it, then it's time to come back inside, warm up and recuperate from the near-death experience. Winter is a time when Nature dies, it's no wonder I feel this way about this weather. So Global warming is an answered prayer for me. Bring it on, I say. And anyway, it is the way it is, as it is today, no need to panic and run with the dooms-dayers, enjoy the warm weather. And it's not like we are the only planet in our solar system that's changing. It's just that we are the lucky ones. Some planets are getting colder, and that's what we don't need.

Nothing to be sorry about, I've always been one to look on the bright side of life. Some are so caught up in the thorns they never see the beautiful bloom. When some see an end to the World, I see a new beginning. Some are worried about an old calendar ending, I see other old calendars from Egypt that don't end but go on and on and on, just like the battery bunny. Some see alien invasions, I see them as star brothers and sisters who've always been by our side. Some fear the unexplained and panic for the hills, I'll wait for a better answer, or a new way of thinking about the unexplained.

Think of global warming as a blessing. If there is more warmth on the planet, I think there will be an extra month or two, maybe more, of the growing season around the world. And guess what that means, yep, more food can be grown. Which means less people will be starving. It also means there will be more good jobs available and less government jobs. But yes, the government jobs that were started from the global warming scare by 'what's his name' will be lost. So much for what fear has done to the people!

Some other reasons Global Warming is cool:

      John, glad you are enjoying the weather.

      I don't like extreme weather one way or the other.

      Interesting hub.

      Hi Davesworld:

      I'm not going to get into a debate with you.

      But I will suggest you look at some facts.

      For NASA's view on Global Warming, check out all the articles on their NASA Earth Observatory site: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Search/index.php?...

      Here is NASA's position - strongly stating that global warming caused by human beings is faster than anything nature has created:

      What is Global Warming?

      Global warming is the unusually rapid increase in Earth’s average surface temperature over the past century primarily due to the greenhouse gases released by people burning fossil fuels.

      How Does Today’s Warming Compare to Past Climate Change?

      Earth has experienced climate change in the past without help from humanity. But the current climatic warming is occurring much more rapidly than past warming events.

      Why Do Scientists Think Current Warming Isn’t Natural?

      In Earth’s history before the Industrial Revolution, Earth’s climate changed due to natural causes unrelated to human activity. These natural causes are still in play today, but their influence is too small or they occur too slowly to explain the rapid warming seen in recent decades.

      **

      When Global Warming happened over 2,000 years ago, there were fewer than 200 million people on the planet. The consequences with 7 billion of us here now will be very different.

      Peace and happiness to you.

      I cannot even begin to address the foolishness of the preceding comments. You see there are these pesky things like facts that get in the way of their ill-informed rants.

      1.) Global temperatures have been warmer than present in the last 2,000 years of recorded human history. When that happened, deserts shrank, people lived longer and healthier lives and the world prospered.

      2.) For the last 16 years or so there has been NO WARMING - check with NASA. It is becoming ever more obvious that the non-science that attempts to link combustion with warming is bogus.

      Wow, I was gonna say that global warming is cool, but after reading justmesuzanne's comment i've changed my mind.

      I cannot even begin to address the foolishness of your premise. A couple more months of hot weather will not make a longer growing season. The seasons were perfectly balanced to provide just the right amount of growing time and dormancy. Global warming has screwed that up, and thrown the entire balance of nature off kilter. The end result will be drought and pestilence, not longer growing seasons. There is no doubt that global warming helps corporate powers by opening trade routes, causing climate conditions that require human intervention for survival and more; however, corporations are not people. If global warming continues at pace the world will become uninhabitable for all but the uber wealthy who have the wherewithal to cope. The rest of us will perish, and the corporate powers and billionaires will inherit the earth.

      I grant there are some nice benefits of global warming, locally. Down here in Florida, we haven't had to start using our heater at all yet, even in December.

      Even so, I have a little trouble with your refrain, "Global warming is cool." Global warming - or climate change, same thing - has lead to half a million people dying in the past year alone. And the numbers increase rapidly almost every year. It is hard for me to see something that is killing millions of my brothers and sisters each decade as "cool." Feel free to check out my hubs on Go Green for a big-picture view of the issues.
