    The idea of 'Climate Change' and 'Global Warming'

    I just got my roof done from the damage done by Hurricane Irma as no roofers could come till now, and a lot of them are going up to Panama City area to start rebuilding the houses and roofs over there. So I was checking to see if what my gut feeling that this is part of the end time signs as the storms get bigger and stronger, Irma was over 400 miles wide compared to the 50 mile wide hurricanes we get, and I found the following...

    "Already, there is evidence that the winds of some storms may be changing. A study based on more than two decades of satellite altimeter data (measuring sea surface height) showed that hurricanes intensify significantly faster now than they did 25 years ago. Specifically, researchers found that storms attain Category 3 wind speeds nearly nine hours faster than they did in the 1980s. Another satellite-based study found that global wind speeds had increased by an average of 5 percent over the past two decades.

    There is also evidence that extra water vapor in the atmosphere is making storms wetter. During the past 25 years, satellites have measured a 4 percent rise in water vapor in the air column. In ground-based records, about 76 percent of weather stations in the United States have seen increases in extreme precipitation since 1948. One analysis found that extreme downpours are happening 30 percent more often. Another study found that the largest storms now produce 10 percent more precipitation."

    I believe the idea of Climate Change (or Global Warming) is not just for political reasons but subtly has become a distraction from the end time signs...

    It would be ironic if we ended up bringing those times on by our own foolishness, um?

    You can tell when Barbarian is flustered; he starts umming.

    Well, we aren't all going to die. Some people are, over stronger storms, droughts, etc. On the other hand, there will be winners and losers. Because rising temps have interfered with dry winds moving out of Asian highlands into northern Africa, it's less arid now.

    The Sahara is retreating, and the Sahel is greener. On the other hand, the American West is getting drier and warmer.

    Things will change. Historically, climate changes bring on upheavals in societies, migrations, and warfare. But maybe not this time. Technology may still blunt the worst of it.

    At least, I hope so.
