Climate Change – or a remarkably stable climate? A Limerick.

It’s freezing around the North Pole.

Let’s implement climate control.

No more milk, no more beef

double speak, our belief.

Global Governance is our goal.

Yesterday, March 8 the Great Lakes ice concentration hit 80 percent

Lake Superior and Lake Erie both had an ice cover of over 95%, Lake Huron over 90%. Only Lake Michigan and Lake Ontario lagged with 60% and 40% ice cover.

This has happened only seven times in the last 45 years that the maximum ice cover has exceeded 80%. And if one looks at a graph, there seems to be no trend whatsoever.

But we just had a bad tornado outbreak in Alabama, and one more is expected. Isn’t that a sign of climate change?

Historically, strong tornadoes are declining.

And until this week the trend was down even further

So, tornadoes are down. How about wild fires?

Wildfires used to be much worse before modern forest management (Smokey the bear was the symbol) was initiated. Recent environmental concerns has led to a reversal of proper forest management “to save the environment”.

What else does increasing CO2 bring?  Take a look at all disasters.

There seems to have been a strong increase in reported disasters. Could it be that the reporting got better after year 2000, after which we see a slightly declining trend.

We seem to be able to handle disasters better. It was much worse a long time ago. Or – the climate is getting more stable.

Could it be that increasing CO2 is good for the climate?

What do you think? We have enormous environmental challenges, and pollution. CO2 is not a pollutant, but will help delay the coming of the next ice age.
