At times I think it's real when I feel it and see some statistics. Then, I find statistics to the complete opposite. Whether it is happening or not, however, we should take care of our environment and be cautious of any harm we can continue to cause to it.

I can't speak for Poland.

Our temperatures are below the seasonal average right now and will likely be so for the next couple of weeks. One year they're up; next year they're down. One millennium they're up; next millennium they're down. Are you trying to make a point, or is this just an anecdotal observation?

And we're 15- 20 degrees-F below "normal" and almost missed August weather altogether. Go figure.

It is an anecdotal obervation. On the other hand I do not remember October like that. Not even close. The weather has been table for 2-3 weeks. It even is getting warmer. Normal temperatures would be at least 10oC lower.

Of course it is. Just like the world wasn't created in seven days, but you have people who just can't let go of what their daddy believed.

So can we make all threads about weather into one giant morass as well?

Considering how many of those guys had scars and mutilations from persecution, I'd say the hotness was pretty low.

I don't know what Celsus you're referring to but just yesterday, we commemorated the martyr St. Celsius of Milan.

Celsius seems pretty Orthodox to me.

I hope you all know that we are still in an Ice Age. We are in a middle period when temps have moderated and the ice sheets have shrunk but still exist. The question is if man made gasses and pollution have disturbed the cycle either one way or another. Have we effected the ocean  currents for example? Are the existing ice sheets melting faster?

Temperatures here in Texas and in most of the United States have been unseasonably cold this autumn and winter.

The amount of ice in the Arctic has rapidly increased from last year.

There is no scientific evidence that mankind-produced gases or substances have any correlation to global warming or cooling whatever.

I am not a scientist, and even if I were, it would not be appropriate for me to "teach" parishioners scientific subjects. Why would I wish to, when I have no responsibility to do so?

We have experienced thus far a record cold for December here in Texas.  We already even had an ice storm, that is very rare. Huh

But that sounds super warm for Poland!

Global warming may be real, but there is an issue if man is causing it, or if its just natural.

Not only that. Man causing it or man contributing to it are also issues. They are not the same. Global Warming may be natural, but man might be contributing to it's impact.

But at the moment, I am not too sure whether it is happening. I've seen both sides.

To make sure I get my exercise everyday, I have a paper route and deliver in the wee hours of the morning - usually between 2 and 4 am (and go back to bed for a few hours afterwards). I can assure you that tomorrow morning with a wind chill of well into the -30s that it'll be "blooming cold...in (certain) affected parts" Grin. Of course, I'm hoping for some sort of minor miracle that will prevent the paper from being published. It's odd that the same paper that tells everyone to stay indoors expects its carriers to roam around the streets to deliver that advice.

We have now temperatures like 12oC at night and 20oC at day, more like August.

According to climatologists, specific temperatures as well as weather pheonomena, are not accurate indicators of climate change/global warming. For example, here the temperature was -12 F. That's not earth-shattering, but quite below normal. In Antarctica where it's summer now (and that Russian ship was/is stuck in ice), the temperature was -13 F. In the past, there have been wide swings of unusual temperature readings. But climate change is figured on broader trends.

No. Contrary to popular belief, the First Nicene Council was not convened to develop a scale to measure the hotness of females. That scale already existed, being invented by Julius Caesar. The council just set certain norms and standards, like the Patriarch of Alexandria making the first judgment and such. The controversy continued, however. The Celts, the pope, and the moderndox took exception.

Increased solar activity (we are in a solar maximum right now) is what is really heating up the earth, and heating the core may cause an ice age.

http://www.euphrosynoscafe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10145&p=60338#p60327

Look at the red polar regions ... that is photons hitting us from the sun.
Just a little heat?

In the most recent post, you will see a result of the M1 flare that we just had moments ago along with the proton stream that is still hitting the earth.

The trends do not correlate.



Oh, they do correlate.

You are not showing the Photon bombardment due to Magnetic Flux from CMEs, which have increased recently due to our shield being gradually weakened, as you have only provided a generalized plot of the M-and X-class flares.

However, if you had looked at the cycles, you would have seen a huge X-flare (act of God), in that last solar cycle shown that does substantially warm the earth. It is not just the huge X-flare, but the resultant CME and Magnetic Flux bombardment that also substantially warm the core of the earth. In fact, as the solar activity has increased (the second sets of plots), the earth's core has been warming (the first sets of plots) incrementally.

That the earth's core has been substantially heated is shown in increased volcanic activity not only in the Pacific Ocean and Indian Oceans with new islands being formed, but also with increased volcanic activity at Yellowstone where that massive dome is likely to explode at any time and has geologists extremely worried. If Yellowstone were to blow, then scientists predict that we might enter an severe cold spell due to all the ash expelled into the atmosphere causing clouds of darkness that prevent the sun from warming our earth.

That is my own extensive research and that of other astrophysicists. If you do not take the time to do your own research, you will not learn anything. Global warming is a myth, but if you do not educate yourself, then you will fall for the lie.

Look at the plots, they will tell you a lot of information.

And here is another plot that is current: a static plot that I just downloaded.
If we were not having the CME, photon bombardment, and X-1 class flare, then our earth would show a slightly purple glow at the point where the sun shines on earth, and the rest of the world including Artarctica and Arctic would be displayed in black. The red, yellow, and green zones show intense radiation.

http://www.euphrosynoscafe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10145&p=60349#p60349


I cannot upload static plots here, so I must upload plots at E Cafe and then share them here.


Here are two more dynamic plots, that show the X-flare in progress.

http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/rt_plots/xray_1m.html - Class X1 flare.
http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/drap/global.html - global photon flux

Read the information at www.spaceweather.com as they continually update their site.
This site is run by Dr. Tony Phillips, so it is not a fly-by night operation.

So you are saying that we cannot trust anyone who actually has the sensitive instruments to record and analyze all the data over decades of information, but we should come up with our own research by using our own preconceptions to influence what we feel the results should be?

Forgive me for being sceptical of your scientific method.

I am using plots and graphs provided by NOAA.

Hit the books and start looking. If you refuse to educate yourself, you will remain very gullible.

Many astrophysicists do not believe the global warming myth.
Their own data shows that it is our position in the universe and the unstable solar cycle that we are currently in that is causing the core of the earth to warm. Increased volcanic activity in the Pacific, in Italy, and at Yellowstone show increased magma levels. This increased volcanic activity is also causing our oceans to warm.

In my studies of geography, we learned that when the oceans warm, there will be increasingly turbulent weather as the jet stream brings water in the form of rain and snow storms. So the blizzard that we are currently experiencing on the East Coast is not surprising.

Hey, I took some college courses in geography and astronomy to educate myself. Then I starting studying governmental data from NOAA. It helped that my dad was an astrophysicist who taught at UC Berkeley. He shared with me many of his lecture notes and slides of galaxies in our universe.

If you go to these governmental sites, which you can access free of charge, there is no excuse for not understanding astronomy and what our sun is doing to heat the core of this planet Earth.

Here is a magnificient educational flyer produced by NOAA that depicts our sun and its activities
http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/info/swx_poster_a.jpg

This is an outstanding educational flyer produced by NOAA that shows the impact of CME's on earth
http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/info/swx_poster_b.jpg

Here is a little 12 page swx_booklet:
http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/Education/index.html

Here is what sunspots look like:
http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/synoptic/sunspots/mdi_sunspots.gif

WWB = federally licensed radio station with time and frequency standards. Professional broadcast engineers use this station to set their time pieces and watches.

X-class solar flares = very high energy electromagnet emissions from our sun; huge explosions from the sun that might disrupt power grids and block out radio communications if they were to be directed at our earth. They can reach the earth in about eight minutes as they travel the speed of light. (see swx booklet page 2 above)

CME = Coronal Mass Ejections = bursts of plasma from the sun's corona, or outer atmosphere. These explosions are slower moving and can reach the earth in one to four days. (see swx booklet, page 2 above)

NOAA uses a logarithmic (not linear) scale. Incidentally, earthquake magnitudes are also measured using a logarithmic scale. Therefore, even though an X1 Solar Flare is much weaker than an X2, an X10 is huge. Any solar flare that is rated X6 or higher might be considered to be an act of God especially if it were to be directed at our planet. The X6 that hit our planet in July 2010 was of such a magnitude that it was termed the Bastille

Here are two more plots. Please take time to click these very colorful NOAA plots. These are from the official site.

Since I last posted, we are now experiencing a MODERATE PROTON FLUX.

The photon bombardment is something fierce.

See this for a static global plot:
http://www.euphrosynoscafe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10145&p=60360#p60360

Here is the dynamic global plot:
http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/drap/global.html

The dynamic plot is even more pronounced as it shows almost 8 bars of maximum absorption on the far right panel.
And the recovery time is now listed at 31 hours 48 minutes. Notice that the Arctic is now colored a darker orange.

"A killer winter storm paralyzed the South yesterday, but it was sunny and warm in Alaska, with record high temperatures. What's up with this weather?

Blame it on the jet stream. For months, this narrow, west-to-east flowing air current has resembled a child's scribble. The jet stream roars along Alaska's coastline and then sharply twists, diving south into Washington before flowing toward the Midwest, completely cutting off California. Because the jet stream is the dividing line between cold, Arctic air from the north and warm air from the south, these unusual undulations are steering frigid air into the eastern half of the country this winter....Meanwhile, Alaska is basking in relative warmth: The town of Port Alsworth tied the highest temperature ever recorded in January in Alaska on Monday: 62 degrees Fahrenheit (17 degrees Celsius).
....
Though these jet-stream patterns have happened before, in recent years, several studies have suggested a link between an increase in the frequency of extreme kinks and waves in the jet stream, and changes in the Arctic due to global warming, such as the shrinking extent of sea ice and snow cover. Less sea ice and snow could cause warming that changes the jet-stream pattern, researchers have shown. The research is still ongoing and is an area of active debate."

Virus Locked In Siberian Ice For 30,000 Years Is Revived In Lab

Scientists at a laboratory in France have thawed out and revived an ancient virus found in the Siberian permafrost, making it infectious again for the first time in 30,000 years.
....
It isn't dangerous to humans, but it's reanimation raises questions about what else might be lurking under the ice, say the French and Russian team that brought it back to life. There work is in the latest issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, or PNAS.

"The revival of such an ancestral amoeba-infecting virus ... suggests that the thawing of permafrost either from global warming or industrial exploitation of circumpolar regions might not be exempt from future threats to human or animal health," the scientists write.

Jean-Michel Claverie, a study author from the National Center of Scientific Research in Aix-Marseille in France, tells the BBC that exposing such ice layers and possible pathogens contained within is "a recipe for disaster."
....
"If it is true that these viruses survive in the same way those amoeba viruses survive, then smallpox is not eradicated from the planet — only [from] the surface [of the planet]," Claverie says. "By going deeper [into the permafrost], we may reactivate the possibility that smallpox could become again a disease of humans in modern times."
