I also think that carbs are overrated.

For my contribution I've gone on a Keto diet, d.h. zero carbohydrates.
Reason: The hydrates produce water which is ok. But the carbo bit produces carbon dioxide which apparently is totally non cool.

Apparently this is not safe in the long term, can contribute to cardiovascular issues. A friend of mine followed it successfully before her wedding about 10 years ago. She was under medical supervision and, famously, her breath stank.

Fascinating. And why is that?

Re: Global Warming - what's behind it?

For all you deniers out there, we've just had the warmest ever winter in Europe, 3.4°C above average and 1.4°C warmer that the previous warmest.

I live at 520 metres. I’ve lived here for 11 years. On an average winter we get about 30 days with snow on the lawn. This can be anywhere from end of October to the start of April. The record was 65 days.

This winter we had 2 days with a centimetre of slush that was gone by 11.00 on both days.

Re: Global Warming - what's behind it?

Global warming is already evident. Difficult to say whether this was caused by humans or is a natural process. The fact is that it is much faster than in the past

Re: Global Warming - what's behind it?

If humans really wan't to protect planet Earth then they have to do two simple things.

1- Go Vegan
2- Stop reproducing

Everything else is just nicely packaged politics and virtue signalling.

Re: Global Warming - what's behind it?

Just to stir the pot.

The first quarter of this year globally is the coldest first quarter for the last seven years.
The global surface temperature for January–March 2021 tied with 2007 as the ninth highest for this year-to-date period at 0.76°C above the 20th-century average.

Maybe it arose due to the 'lockdown dividend' such as the suspension and curtailment of airline flights and less cars & other traffic on the road commuting to and from work due to 'work from home' in 2020

...or maybe a sympathetic reflection of the general mood of the population in Europe.

Certainly not. It takes decades before a drop in emissions actually results in cooling.

Re: Global Warming - what's behind it?

According to the US Government National Centers for Environmental Information the global march of ever-increasing annual temperatures has paused, the first third of this year (Jan. - Apr.) was globally the coldest for seven years, April itself was the coldest for eight years.
Maybe we will all be saved?

The Arctic, Greenland and Antarctica keep thawing. http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/

This is not a model forecast, this is sea ice extent data from satellite measurements:

Don't count on it. Just the tip of the iceberg.

Perhaps worth using the full statement for April.

Quote:
This was the smallest value for April since 2013 and was the ninth warmest April in the 142-year record. April 2021 marked the 45th consecutive April and the 436th consecutive month with temperatures, at least nominally, above the 20th-century average. December 1984 was the last time a monthly temperature was below average.
(my bold)

It does not go uniformally upwards and occasional breaks in the sequence are to be expected. There is absolutely no doubting the long term trend.

Looking historically, do you think it is normal for the Poles to be icebound?

The Earth has been free of ice at the poles for about 80% of the last 540 million years and reached the highest peak average global temperature of 28 degrees C at the end of the Permian Period.

We and our agriculture didn't exist at the end of the Permian period.

At a global average 28°C (haven't checked the accuracy), humans would only be able to survive at all towards the poles. Try squeezing 8 billion into that sort of land area.
