Death of Winter is right... here in Vancouver I feel like the last 3-4 years there hasn't even been a fucking winter. Spring is summer, and summer is just an overcast heatwave until October, at which point it rains for 5 months.

Here in Vermont, we barely had a winter last year. Almost no snow, and what little fell quickly melted. Normally there's snow by Thanksgiving and it doesn't go away until Easter at least. Last winter, we didn't get snow until January and it was gone by the end of March. I meet a lot of people for work from all walks of life, and I made it a point of asking the older ones about this most recent winter compared to winters past in Vermont. Without exception, they all told me this was the strangest winter they've ever experienced in Vermont... :(

The summer here was notably extended this year, and we've just gone past the winter solstice but most of the trees haven't dropped their leaves. This is our concern dude.

Could be a short term swing though, those things do happen. I recall some really intense winters during the late 90s in the UK midlands, and milder ones in the late 80s/early 90s, then even further back in the mid 80s really cold winters. This feels like the tip of that short cycle again (plus actual climate change bolted on top).

We have permanent autumn here. No more summers, no more winters, just fucking rain. So much rain.

Methane is a much worse greenhouse gas than CO2.

Is the panic just to keep the status quo? I mean, so what, Yeah climate will change and favorable farming of particular crops will have to move on to the now newly favorable spot. Yes some shit is gonna change, but how catastrophic is all this really? Short term, may be distrupting to our lifestyle and other animal and plant life. But a little longer term, shit will be fine, changed around a bit here and there but so what?

Fucking panicers.

Now you've done it

I will say there's signs of the Antarctic increasing in size, the Arctic is relatively stable, new permafrost being formed and the ozone hole is shrinking. So not all doom and gloom :)

On a side note, I don't know who's in charge of Alternet nowadays but it isn't like it used to be. Time to remove it from my news feed I think.

Today i started to turn my cellar-room into a small workspace + sleeping place. Just have to figure out a way to connect to the internet :(

George Gideon Oliver Osborne, son of Sir Peter Osborne, 17th Baronet of Ballentaylor and Ballylemon and Felicity Alexandra Loxton-Peacock, educated at St. Paul's and Magdalen College, Oxford.

That's how he likes to be addressed.

look at that and tell me there arent elements of dark matter science.

the whole landscape is changing. whether you believe in global warming or not, emissions/pollution are bad for human health, even humans these days are bad for human health. because theyre lazy careless shtbags.

Satellite images have revealed more than 200 strange, bright blue lakes in Russia's Arctic regions that are bubbling "like jacuzzis" as a result of leaking methane gas.

We're fucked. When people ask why there's no aliens running around the galaxy, this is the reason. Beings that become self aware are too fucking stupid to avoid extinction.
