AGW Today: Spiritual, Herons, Food Crisis

Spiritual

But perhaps a spiritual response is also needed to global warming — to provide the inner strength necessary to face and combat the worst effects that are to come from the Earth’s erratically changing climate. You don’t have to go to a church, synagogue or temple to be “spiritual” (although it doesn’t often hurt). Spirituality can be broadly defined as the attempt to respond meaningfully to life’s existential challenges.

Perhaps it can provide a means for those who say Man is mostly or solely responsible for global warming to actually walk the walk, instead of just yammering away.

Heron’s

The birth of white herons at wildlife park is proof of global warming say conservation experts.

Staff at Wildwood say climate change has warmed Britain’s climate so much that it is now suitable for little egrets to breed.

Wait a sec: wouldn’t increased breading be a good thing? I’d be more impressed if the story wasn’t actually plagiarizing Wikipedia (paragraphs 7-10)

Food crisis

AMSTERDAM — The global food crisis will only worsen because of climate change, the UN climate chief said Friday, urging leaders of the world’s richest countries meeting in Japan next week to set goals to reduce carbon emissions within the next dozen years.

What we really need is some good global cooling to reduce the growing seasons and available land! That’d help!

    No Teach we do not need global cooling. Or global warming. Our farm infrastructure in place now is set for a certain climate. If there is global warming and Canada becomes ripe for mangoes are we going to want to see a wholesale forced migration of peoples from the now uninhabitable south march to the north ?

    What? Wikipedia isn’t a reliable news source???!!!!

    wouldn’t increased CO2 emissions help the food crisis? Plants synthesize CO2, therefore more CO2 means more plants, which means more crops. Well of course unless the greenies want us to use those plants for fuel (see also ethanol).

  4. John, there is no such thing as a normal temperature. The average climate metric change. Always have, always will. The growing seasons were longer and farther north during the Global Climate Optimum, allowing a pretty good agricultural society in Greenland. Then, the Little Ice Age came along, and ruined it and killed off the vikings in greenland. It happens. Welcome to the reality of the Earth’s climate.

    I got a good chuckle out of the Wikipedia source. All I was doing was looking for some info on the Heron’s, seeing what their normal range had been, and then noticed the similarities between the article and the Wiki. 🙂

    I think that it would be best if the egrets were able to continue breeding in their normal places as far as the semantic use of normal vs usual or mean within a range of years it has definitly warmed at a rate that we have never been able to record. It is the rate of change that worries people the most and at this time the only thing that appears able to have increased that rate of change is the actions of the 7 billion humans. Neither volcanic or sun activity could have caused the change taht we have seen in the last 50 years. This last spring was the 7th warmest out of 128

    Not where I am it wasn’t. We were below average as far as the temperature this spring. And in fact we have been below average for the summer so far.
