12:12 am: Global Warming?
11 years ago, in the fall of 1998, I noticed something odd. We had really warm weather in mid-December. (I noticed this because it led to my baby being hospitalized with pnemonia, so it stuck in my mind.)

This continued every year there after. The summers were hot, too.

Until this year.

This summer was the coolest summer I've ever seen in Virginia. It was practically like summers in New York when I was a kid.

I must admit, I loved it.

Right now, it is nearly Mid-December. It has been really cold the last week. I guess we can only wait and see what happens next week, as the 17th to the 19th is when the warm weather comes.

But, considering that there were reports of warmer wheather on Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto...I wonder if the theory voiced by some -- that we just reached the end of an 11 year sun-spot cycle -- has some virtue to it.

I guess the next few years will tell whether it stays warm or returns to a slightly cooler temperature.

Actually, if it were getting colder, we might want to increase them...since more Green House gasses makes it warmer.

I don't buy into climate change being directly tied to emissions, but I do think we want to cut them down to prevent issues of environmental damage and also the cost to human health, as breathing this stuff is not good. Of course, that tends to be other things than CO2, so I guess I am not totally on topic here.

That's all right. It's still nice to hear from you and hear your opinions.
