    Default Global warming

    It took almost a full year, but here on the East Coast, it looks like Trump has solved the Global Warming issue. Tom

    Global warming and local/regional weather are, by definition, different. The eastern 1/2 of the US had had subnormal temperatures for the last 15 years. In that same period, the average temperature in the Arctic has gone up 7+ degrees. And with no signs of slowing up, the massive ice melt will eventually be knocking on the front door of a lot of shore properties. Like YellowSS's.

    Happy New Year Mike! Just like all politics are local, well, I'm freezing my butt of here in Philly. As for my Beach Property, all I can say is I still have tenant in it this week. Rentals for the Spring, Summer and Fall are sold out. If the water rises, the walk to the surf will be just a little shorter. Property values aren't declining. I don't think the rich boys in Malibu are dumping their beach homes either. But then again I'm not a snowflake like some. You are the best in my book. We've always had great discussions. Can't wait to see you again on track. Stay warm. Tom

    I am loving the global warming, without it, here in the Midwest, we would still be under the glaciers.

    It depends on your time scale. More recently, there were productive farms on Greenland in the 12th century AD. Or earlier, when there was enough vegetation under the north slope of Alaska that has become enough oil to drill economically. Yeah, plate tectonics have moved the continents in the past 90 million years, but that latitude hasn't changed much.

    Time scale is extremely important.

    Many years ago, the river that cut the Grand Canyon was just a creek running along the surface. It's a mile deep now.

    Judging/predicting weather based on your own lifespan is foolish.
