Scientists on abrupt climate change



Future generations will curse us. They'll think about us like we think about those Southern slave-owners or the Inquisition. Except that climate change will affect everyone.

This is what faith-based thinking is doing to us - well, one of the things. If you don't accept the scientific consensus on global warming, and you're not a climatologist yourself (so you've got the education and experience to disagree, in your own field of expertise), you're just believing what you want to believe. If you know anything about science and the scientific method, you should know how stupid that is.

Speaking of abrupt, is it just me or does it seem like the change in seasons has been more abrupt and run-together over the last few years? The change between seasons doesn't seem to be as gradual as they used to be.

You're just getting older, Jeff. Time starts moving faster and faster the older you get. When you get to my age, the seasons last about 15 minutes. :)
