Klimaforandringer på godt og ondt

Nu kommer sommeren, men pas på - det gode vejr kan ende i vold som E&E Publishing skriver

But a more important question for a world on the cusp of global warming — a world where heat waves and absent winters have become increasingly common phenomena — is how such a correlation might manifest for society as a whole.

“It’s a simple but crucial fact that people tend to get out and about more when it’s pleasant out,” he said. “During the winter months, people can’t get out. There aren’t as many opportunities to interact.”

Warm weather lets people mix socially, he said. And it is only a matter of probability that sometimes that mixture may prove volatile.

“More opportunity for violent crime means more violent crime,” he said.

Det forklarer jo den afrikanske livsstil af vold og voldtægt. De er ikke bare ude hele dagen, hvor de mødes med hinanden, de er ude nøgne - muligvis kun iført af bastskørter. Men man kan også få sit liv ødelagt her i Vesten endda midt i bagværket, som Shoshana Zuboff fortæller i Huffington Post

Hell is not a place; it’s a time. It starts with the experience of irreversible loss and ends as you learn to live with loss. My hell time began on a summer night in 2009 while wrapping brownies at the kitchen table in our Maine farmhouse.

Fifteen years earlier my husband and I gave up fame and fortune to raise our son and daughter on a Maine farm. We wanted them to grow up with the respectful down-to-earth values of our small Maine town. We hoped they would shape deeply lived authentic lives surrounded by natural beauty and bound to the rhythms of the seasons. Our life was a celebration of long Huck Finn summers and cozy snowy winters. We created an 18th century household filled with books, music, and memories in which we all worked and played. It was our sanctuary — the safest, happiest place on earth. Later our children taught us to be green. We installed windmills and solar panels, recycled and composted, and became more mindful of our footprint.

Det har da ikke noget med noget at gøre, hører jeg nogen indvende. It goes to character your honor. Sustained! For Huck Finn drømmen brast da den globale opvarmning pludselig slog ned i køkkenet

Then a bolt of lightning crashed through the kitchen window, mowed me down like a freight train hurtling through my chest and triggered a blast so loud I thought the sound barrier had been breached somewhere between the crockery and the curtains. When I opened my eyes, I was lying on the floor. Then came smoke. Fifteen minutes later we were out in the storm, watching in disbelief as our beloved home vanished in a towering wall of flame.

Was the lightning bolt in our kitchen caused by global warming? The facts are too compelling to ignore. It seems that global warming turned my family into refugees in our own lives, stripped of everything that once carried our memories and meaning.

Opvarmningslynet kan dog også være et lokalt fænomen fremprovokeret af deres klimavenlige vindmøllepark. I så fald skal baseballspillere tjekke stadionets omgivelser for der kan være andre forklaringer end blot bedre træning, bedre udstyr og bedre stereoider på at der i NBL slåes flere home-runs end før fortæller Newsbusters

“It has not been proven, but I think ultimately it will be proven that the air is thinner now, there have been climactic changes over the last 50 years in the world, and I think that’s one of the reasons balls are carrying much better now than I remember,” McCarver said during Saturday’s game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals.

He then commented about some recent shots that went further than he would have expected leading his co-announcer Joe Buck to marvelously ask, “So that’s your ‘inconvenient truth’ about Major League Baseball?”

“Well,” the former catcher responded, “I think they’re going to find that out one of these days, yes I do.”

Intet er så galt at det ikke er godt for noget.
