Still laughing... coffee mopped up from last one.
Seriously though, the major squall line flood last week & its aftermath has not appeared in any news item & no disaster areas declared either despite more rain (46" on the big island) falling there than anywhere on the planet in a single event all the previous year. Considering the event wiped out a lot of hotels & tourism is the no.1 industry there, the rescue package should have been headline news.
Why the igorance?
Have a nice day: Ag
ps. Tonga's turn in the squall line barrel happened 2 days ago with 7" of rain washing out the islands & sheet floods through the houses. The single squall line nearly matched Tonga's average february totals.
ROFL

funny how selective the press are

yeah lots of rain here too though 46" is A LOT - they got about 16" up north not that long ago and it flooded bad - I suppose good thing is the 46" was on an island and not in the middle of some continent though some of the snowfalls happenning are getting pretty extreme - 13ft in six weeks etc

please people.
i live in new york city, and i fear with all the dramatic changes with the environment. i may suffer some direct results soon.
i just want to put this idea out there for someone to INVENT it please!!
An Artificial Plant - A machine that intakes carbon dioxide and converts it into oxygen.
I know you may say it'll take a lot of energy, but look at the Sharper Image Ionic Air Purifier. 10 watts to run 24/7, and this came out years ago.
We must look for a way to do this!! It might be our technological answer for this damn mess.
I'm not looking for any credit for the invention. Just want to put the idea out there. Thanks.
Get going inventors!!!

It looks as though we might be in for ice instead of heat due to the lack of sunspots in this cycle. Also one of the largest volcanoes known has been found under the ice at the north pole ,maybe explaining some of the polar melt. Last but not least ,they can't tell me the weather for tommorow ,why should I believe it when they say we will fry in a decade or so? Oh and the guy that invented the internet ,Al Gore says we are going to fry ,and we all know about him.

Why would somebody comment on something that is not happening and will not be happening? It isn't happening in Pennsylvania or any other state.

Would be interesting to know of name & location of the volcano. The only ones I know of are in either the Nansen-Gakkel ridge (a spreading centre), or an unnamed volcano which is part of the ridge between Greenland & Siberia crossing the pole (closer to Greenland), & had 2 major sub ice eruptions with large columns of steam & a wide ice out for several weeks during the Whaler days.

One of my main pastimes is volcano hunting (how got interested in climate in the first place).

To set your mind @ rest, the submarine volcanism is rather high temperature & low heat. In an ocean it would be like dropping a pellet of molten metal (between 1mm and 1.5cm) into a bathtub full to the overflow (goes fizz, & then the bath stays the same with a bit of mist on top).

Have a nice day: Ag

ps. Did kenny ever get moshed by a volcano?

All of you nut-jobs having Gorebasms, feeding chicken little and living in climate "models" , have at it! Keep barking at the moon, biting your nails and pulling-out your hair. I'll just continue to live in the real world where the weather will always change, it will get hot and cold just as it always has. What follows is an article from 02/11/2008, I'll post the link at the end. The temperature in International Falls fell to 40 below zero Monday 02/11/08. The temperature also fell to 40 below in Embarrass, 80 miles southeast of International Falls. That's just one degree above the all-time record in Minneapolis, 250 miles to the south, that was set in January 1888, the weather service said. It was also a cold day for the appropriately named town of Winter. The town in northwest Wisconsin chilled to a low of 25 below. Single-digit temperatures plus high wind drove the wind chill factor to nearly 20 below across much of upstate New York. Philadelphia had a "Code Blue" alert in effect, sending outreach crews to coax homeless people into shelters. Monday's low of 10 above zero. Thousands of West Virginia homes and businesses had no electricity Monday after the state was hit by weekend wind gusts of up to 55 mph. At least nine counties closed schools because of power outages and the cold - the mountain city of Elkins had a low of 6 above. Classes also were canceled Monday for a number of schools in Michigan, which remained in a deep freeze after a weekend of single-digit temperatures and gusty wind. One death was blamed on the weather. http://apnews.my wa y.com/article/2008 0211/D8UO...(27 min ago | post #55)
Getting better...

I did state in one prior post that the climate mode#3 is more dynamic & turbulent.

The result is equatorial air reaching closer to the pole (rains a lot)... and polar air reaching closer to the equator (surprisingly it does not snow much under those conditions but it definitely gets windy).

Keep up the good reportage.

Will be interesting to see the reportage of goings on in the mix zone from someone there @ the time.

Have a nice day: Ag

ps. My day is currently 16 deg c bright sunshine not much breeze, only a few contrails to break up the wide blue yonder, & a light dry morning frost (same for the last few days). The hazel catkins are just going over, buds on the plum trees are starting to pop & the big yellow & black grey ass bumble bees are out & about. The winter floods of the last week are draining out quite nicely & the ponds are full.
Not global warming: Instead over the last 6 weeks, the Gulf stream got its ass in gear & we now have green turtles washing up on the beaches.

The thing with Global Warming is that it is not just caused by human activity alone. Trees giving off carbon dioxide gets into the sir and mixes with ohter chemicals in the air creating O3 which burns through the atmosphere. The process takes time and no one knows how to truly stop or repair damages.

well we are getting more rain and unseasonally cold weather - more like winter here than summer. not that im complaining Ive put about 300 trees in on my farm (in the mountains a few hours out of sydney) over the last six months so been good for them and my fruit trees are very heavy with fruit so been enjoying the spoils. Looks like a cold wet snowy year ahead

It is a natural occurence. Dinosauers were here before the ice age. As the earth rotates, the ice melts. No big deal. Weather has always changed. Global warming is a billion dollar if not more scam. Can't believe people buy into it. Go Green-put money in your pocket- Gore and all the rest.

Try creating an OZ poll.

Looks like a choice between dry hot drought or cool wet & winter snow.

Personally I believe right now that the only people complaining will be the tourists, & then theres always the mid part of the W. Australia coast if you like dry sandy sunny beaches.

Are ther any high buildings in Darwin? The locals there will need a place to run when Indochina & Papua lets go & the Tsunami arrives (not a climate one that one).

Wow. This sure got a lot of comments. Actually our Earth and Sun is not intended to last forever. Judgment day is coming. Anyone who is not saved will feel the wrath and go into the Lake of Fire. Revelations tells it all.

well civilisations rise and fall over time - there will be good and bad in each the main thing is to try and stay on the straight and narrow and avoid the delusions of dictatorships - the weather does what it does it does not have an agenda liek people do

I’m going to have to disagree with “Ag” on this one. You are not ready for Biochem. 101. Maybe look into getting a copy of the old Bell Labs science film “Our Mister Sun” for a clear and simple explanation. Of course that might be a good idea for a lot of the people posting here…I won’t mention names.(But no, I wasn't talking about "Ag"... though he might find some ideas for making his explanations clearer.)

Dead trees are very good at releasing CO2 into the air.

Live trees on the other hand tend to be bigger @ season end than season start (which is why they are trees).
The CO2 in that case year on year is locked up in the trunk as Lignocellulose.

The previous comment requesting a poster read biochem 101 was simply because large perennial plants release on average less CO2 per year than they lock up in their structure.

On the other hand the deforestation addicts and prairie fans will be able to balance their statement. As for locking up CO2 in the environment per se it will require a sapropel (black mud or "black shale" when older & more compressed). I do recall that the local appearance of those in summer estuaries gets the environmentalists more up in arms than the green lobbyists.

As far as it goes however I do like life in green & leafy tree & shrub rich areas, & am old enough to see a few mature large trees (18m) grown from nut & acorn, they grow pretty fast in leafy suburbia with all that lawn food & water & are getting too big to hug).

have a nice day: Ag

You will be in the lake of fire then maybe satan will tell you where it is then, if it really matters then...
