Per Mr. Wallace:“The warmth is expected to come from the Earth
getting closer to the sun in its astronomical cycling.”The
earth's orbit around the sun is not a circle. Our orbit is an ellipse.Perihelion occurs each January 3. The earth then is 91.5 million miles
from the sun. (The northern hemisphere winter takes place when we are closest
to the sun.)Aphelion occurs each July 4. The earth then is 94.5
million miles from the sun. (The northern hemisphere summer takes place when we
farthest from the sun.)Any change in the inclination of the
earth's axis is far more significant than a million miles or less from the
So you're saying global warming is real and the 'don't worry be
happy' strategy is the way to go?
We can adapt just like the proverbial frog in the pan of water on the stove?
Please, Mr. Gronberg, you're going to confuse people in Utah with your
Just a day ago repubs were telling me that Global Warming wasn't even
occurring. Now it is and we need to adapt to it? Sorry, but I'm
just confused on what to believe. Which kool-aid am I drinking so repubs can win
the next election? Are we adapting or obstructing?
Adapt? Tell that to the billions of people who live in coastal areas that will
be uninhabitable. Would you welcome a couple million refugees to live in the
parched Utah furnace?
To "embarrassed Utahn!" if you read any of the AGW literature, you would
find that it doesn't just makethe planet warmer and drier. What the AGW
scientists claim is that some areas will have less rain, and others will have
more.Maybe the Great Salt Lake will grow, and the communities along
its banks will be flooded out.Here are the big questions for those
that believe that manmade CO2 is responsible or the driver for the current
warming. Since when has the earth's climate been a constant? What should
global temperatures be? Why should we trust climate models that their creators
have admitted are not accurate and are missing pieces?
Re: "Adapt to global warming"We'd all do well to accept
that advice, since there's not the first thing we can do about
anthropogenic global warming, even if the hypothsis is someday shown to have
some merit.The third world will spew into the air every ounce of
carbon "pollution" we avoid. It's just not politically possible for
American or European socialists to dictate a standard of living to the third
world, and the heyday of plutocratic leftist oligarchies appears to be winding
to a close.
Two possible remedies for the problem, both of which are widely used: Increase
the very valuable name calling, as if we were all still in sixth grade, and
throw money at it in bag fulls.
"The third world will spew into the air every ounce of carbon
"pollution" we avoid."I used to hear that same kind of
argument from first grade kids on the school playground. "But HE did it
first. . . . "
Re: "I used to hear that same kind of argument from first grade kids on the
school playground. 'But HE did it first. . . . '"And,
it's the same argument you'll hear today from the third world.
There's literally nothing you or I or ANY American can do to slow the
advance of third-world living standards.Though they hate it when we
point it out, American liberals just don't get to decide anymore how people
will live in the third world. And, their plan to force America into the third
world will exacerbate, not alleviate the problem.
"Though they hate it when we point it out, American liberals just don't

did you escape from?
Re: "What are you talking about?"There's always someone
who doesn't get the memo.
Oh. You read that on a memo. Well that makes sense.
By all means, let's not curtail our headlong rush to destroy the planet,
let's just adapt to it!
