Reading this Jerry sure does have your head itching a bit. The best I can think is that the trapped Co2 in the upper atmosphere works like a HEATSINK, trapping the hotter temperatures higher up and away from the ground, but causing ambient temps to climb as the heatsink temps thicken due to whatever reasoning. These radiant temps we feel when sitting in a hot car may be what we feel more of as that giant heatsink in the sky expands outwards.
I love the one reason that a scientist on CNN explained colder record temps in some areas a few months ago, he said "The colder temps are created when iceburgs melt and the cooler air released is kept low as higher surrounding temps rise upwards because of natural convection."
I guess Global Warming (what did they say 1.37 degrees F in 100 years) depends on where you are measuring from - and of course they throw the CYCLICAL part completely out of the equation, it must be anti-something. How about all the Co2 released when Sadam Hussain set ablaze all the hundreds of oil wells at the end of the first Gulf War in Qwait, I'd have been happy if they hung that bum for crimes against the planet for that mess we had to clean up. IF any single man-made even poluted the planet (in a single event) that one was right up there with the best.
I just have one question for everyone, if the climate "changes" DRAMATICALLY every 5000 or so years, to the point where humans struggle to survive.... Tell me, what you gonna do, besides your best if THIS POINT IN TIME is part of that cycle - the last around the completion of the Great Pyramids.
Earth is a planet with some pretty dramatic climate extremes, all of which we are capable of surviving with the right equipment, but when 60 foot of snow blankets your town and it turns to solid ice, or when a mud-slide (Earth's number one killer of humans) comes roaring through, I'll be one of those people who believe it isn't the first nor the last time it will happen - surely it has happened a few million times before and will likely repeat itself at least as many, whether man is here to witness it or not. Of course these extremem changes will probably wein out most of us, I highly doubt my AC or furnace nor anything my wife has stowed away in the attic can prepare and weather us for such climatical extremes. And just think, we may all be just another ancient civilation dug-up by archilogists in a thousand years - at least we'll have some good footage to share with them, if we are smart enough to save the relics of machinery to play them.
