Historically, the more active volcano’s are…the colder the temps become. “The well shaded north-facing crater at Mt. St. Helens, which formed during the eruption of 1980, has accumulated snow steadily since 1982-83, forming the newest and fastest growing glacier in Washington. Between 1982 and 1988, roughly 3.33 million m3/yr of snow fell in the crater, and by late 1998, the glacier had a total volume of ~71,000,000 m3 of ice.” http://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2002CD/finalprogram/abstract_33712.htm
Huh? If the hysteria and religious fervor were not so pronounced (worse than any Southern Baptist…sorry Baptists), we could perhaps have an intelligent discussion about the realities of this complex topic. But, we can’t slow down. Every thing is a crisis…a hype moment…the world is ending from every angle it seems. And, a charlatan snake oil salesman is near to play upon the hype. Wonder what the truth really might be? Cameras on shrinking glaciers, yet other glaciers grow around the world. Do we pick our convenient evidence and ignore contradictory evidence? Too much money at stake now in this ‘green’ hysteria. Scary hysteria, I say. That hysteria is as scary as that glassy eyed, cultish look of any Charles Manson follower or Southern Snake Charming Fundamentalist (sorry snake charmers). Read about the global warming heretic Freeman Dyson…unless your intellect surpasses his???
Lighten Up, You Devout Believers. I am not Denying (Heaven Forbid)…Just Calling for a Balanced Study of Cause & Effect and Course of Action that does not promote a loss of freedoms, liberty (enough of that going on right now), create World-Planet anything or follow wrong headed bozos like Al Gore…that’s all.
