So, now, Global Warming is going to cool us?
Revolution, flashmobs, and brain chips. A grim vision of the future
Monday April 9, 2007
There is "compelling evidence" to indicate that climate change is occurring and that the atmosphere will continue to warm at an unprecedented rate throughout the 21st century. It could lead to a reduction in north Atlantic salinity by increasing the freshwater runoff from the Arctic. This could affect the natural circulation of the north Atlantic by diminishing the warming effect of ocean currents on western Europe. "The drop in temperature might exceed that of the miniature ice age of the 17th and 18th centuries."
So, which computer model are we to believe? The one that says global warming is gonna heat us up and make deserts out of Palm Springs?
Or, the one that says we'll have an ice age?
I will cede that there is ONE aspect of global warming that Man has control over - the panicky jitters. Ya know, the ones that sell ad-space...
