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.

CO2 is not pollution. Never has been. Doesn't hurt plants, etc.

It does build up in the atomosphere. This may or may not add to the world being warmer (though to date the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere that comes from humans is still a rather small percentage) , but that still does not make it pollution of the "it's killing the plants and fish" type.

It does kill on the local level. If you add up the averages around the world, you'll find places where animals/fish/etc are thriving and offset the losses in areas where there is pollution.

In fact, a very "local" example is someone who turns on the car in the garage and then sits in the car as a form of suicide.

You're confusing carbon DIoxide with carbon MONoxide.
