What happened to Global Warming?

When I put my first above ground pool in around the late 90's we were able to open it in April and start swimming in May.

Now my pool is just opened and still not warm enough to swim in

 

I'd like some global warming back...

While I agree with Obama on many things, he has totally lost the plot on this one.  His spreading the doom and gloom message based on the complete fallacy that is 'global warming' is so, so wrong on so many levels.

In using a bit of Fuzzy Logic language here: If only the cesspool of global warming scientist would grow a collective brain and reveal the truth, then maybe the world's most powerful effwits would sing a better, more positive tune.

Fact: the world's greatest polluters are the large industrial corporations who commissioned the 'global warming' scientists to find fault... let them fechen pay [out of their own coffers] if there really is a problem....otherwise they should shut the fech up.

I actually have a reason why global warming stopped Zombie.  

 

Your mom and I stopped having constant sex.  The temperature of the earth cooled.

Quoting sareth01,

More like you stopped constant wankin'...  and the reduced friction caused the atmosphere to cool dramatically, thus cooling Earth itself.

But now you mention it!  All the people doing the horizontal dance in Lovers Lanes all around the world would be contributing to global warming.... once they roll down the windows to let out all that steam and accumulated hot air.  So it's not fossil fuels after all, but lustful Lovers Lane libido.

One of the articles linked in there, Argus Press, had this little gem: "But Rep. Markey, D-Mass, committee chairman, said, 'Dr. Hansen was right. Twenty years later, we recognize him as a climate prophet.'" Yes, a climate prophet. Smells just a tad religious, not scientific.

Quoting AlLanMandragoran,

Not just a tad religious!  For mine, the global warming doomsayers have been referencing passages from the Bible: Re: floods, drought, etc, all along.  Next they'll be telling us it'll start raining frogs [to help stave off starvation]... and that they can part the Red Sea to reduce sea levels and ocean warming.

And what about all those prophets who predicted the world's end in 2012 and various other years before it?  Did any of them ever mention it happening because of man-made global warming?  No, of course not.  No, it'll be by the hand of God, and he shall smite us with the sound of trumpets and turn politicians and bankers into pillars of salt.

Now for a prophesy of my own.  The world will have gone into deep recession by 2020 and all the top economies will fall, thus opening the door for the lesser economies of our ape brothers and sisters, who will take over world politics, Wall St, the London Stock Exchange and worldwide manufacturing, for which the majority of mankind will be enslaved to run.  As you can see, not a lot will have changed politically or in the workforce, but at least we will be thankful for the bananas,

Climate chaos?  We've had that since the dawn of time on this planet.  Take Melbourne Australia, for instance.  It has all four seasons in one day... most days, if not every day.  And it's not consistent, either, being hot one minute and cold the next.  Housewives are never sure when to hang out the washing cos it can be raining one minute and blistering hot the next.

And Melbourne council workers - who never work in the rain or when it's blistering hot - spend more time sheltered under canopies playing cards than repairing or building roads.  Oh, and these daily fluctuations are not new.... like since industrialisation and the extensive use of fossil fuels.  Aboriginal Dreamtime legends speak of them throughout history... saying that Melbourne is alright for a visit, but you wouldn't want to live there.

I have!  Did a quite a few removals down there when I worked with Wridgways in the 70's.  Also spent a few days there in '69, on the way from the UK... tho the skyline's changed some since then.  Last time I was there was 2008... on the way back to Queensland from Tassie.  Had a 5 hour layover so took in a few sights to kill time.  It's an alright place [to a point], but I'm not a big city person and like a slower pace.

Trump is a complete idiot at best, but he has [for once] said something with a modicum of sense in it.  While he's spot on about global warming being a crock of shite, he's wrong about nuclear warming AND much everything else.  God help the world if his White House ambition is realised.

And no, that was not a political comment.... just that he's a fechen idiot.

All he does is spout the kind of rhetoric that seems to start in the middle looking for a place to happen.

It's been said that every time he opens his mouth he puts his foot in it.  For mine, given the way he speaks to people [The Apprentice, etc] somebody wearing dirty great big army boots oughta put their foot in it.... right up to their ankle.

Well, Climate Chaos is now upon us, as predicted by the French foreign minister in 2014. We failed to act sufficiently, and now we are doomed. DOOOOOOOOOMED!

There are 13 hours remaining, so hope for global warming doom is not yet lost.
