Most likely a number of factors from tilt of the earth‘s axis, strength of the sun, lack of volcanic activity, etc etc...

A bit lost in the patois. I guess a 2 smoke is a 2-stroke motorcycle.

Anyway, Mrs. Thunberg is harmless, completely harmless. Why grown-ass men should be scared of her?
And "grown-ass" women as a matter of fact. I guess it's because some people don't grow up, they just grow older.

Feel free to find any other explanations, I'm willing to change my opinions.

Perhaps we should start a new thread called 'Who's afraid of Greta Thunberg ?'

Re: Global Warming - what's behind it?

...or open the can of worms of pet's carbon footprint? Average dog = 2 cars on the road per year.

Quote:
The biggest contributor to the “pawprint” is what we put in our pet’s bowl every day. In an eye-opening US report2, UCLA professor Gregory Okin explains how America’s cats’ and dogs’ eating habits are responsible for releasing as many as 64 million tons of greenhouse gases every year. That’s roughly the equivalent of driving over 13 million cars. Meaning your average canine’s carbon footprint is twice that of a 4x4 car. Crazy but true.

Sea snot threatens Turkish fish

Disgusting algal bloom is on its way to destroying the fish in the Sea of Marmara. Like its Breton, and elsewhere, cousins, it is due to a combination of a warmer climate and fresh water runoff, rich in fertilizer and raw sewage.

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?
Still an unusual year.
Jan. - Apr. this year was globally the coldest for seven years now Jan - May is also the coldest for seven years.

Why do you pick the specific number of 7? Is it lucky?.

Am certain that once greed, corruption and personal political interests are eradicated from our planet that a solution to global warming is just a matter of time.

Now thats the funniest fairy tale I have ever heard. Eradicate human behavior, or humans completely? According to some people*, WE are the carbon that needs to be reduced.

* See Bill Gates


Of course its CO2 and ONLY CO2 thats causing climate change. It has nothing to do with sun cycles, the weakening magnetic field nor the changing of the poles.
