In a year of extreme heat, Antarctica’s last six months were the coldest on record.”For the polar darkness period, from April through September, the average temperature was -60.9 degrees Celsius (-77.6 degrees Fahrenheit), a record for those months,” the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) said.
It is going to be interesting to see what kind of winter we have in the USA. For the last few years, at least in the middle America, we have had some exceptionally mild weather. That does not bother me in the least. The only thing I am ever concerned about, is getting enough precipitation, either in the way of snow or rain.
I am convinced that global warming is a combination of being cyclical, and the abuse mankind has released on Mother Nature by the way of air pollution. Anyone that denies that is play with a short deck.
Try to deny that this pollution is not a contributor. Impossible.
Put another log on the fire, and cuddle up with your main squeeze, you may need it this winter.
