I wanna see California Puppies!!!
The bigger the better!
(Yes, I DO mean THOSE kind of puppies!)
... Why ... A Canadian Club on the rocks !!
Well, the PDO is pretty commonly known.
It is a bit of a stretch to use it to try to attack the entire concept of global warming.
There are a variety of currents, oscillations etc. that impact climate. This is just one. There is also the NAO for one.
Oscillations are well-known and don't disprove global warming.
Environmentalists worked the threat of the loss of the ozone between the 70s-90s to the point where no one is listening anymore after getting the govt to implement vehicle emissions inspection, doing away with the manufacture of spray cans, making movies scaring the bejesus out of the population, etc. Now, they're on the bandwagon again talking about the cooling of the oceans and already have a movie about the disruption of the Atlantic Ocean with "The Day After Tomorrow" starring Dennis Quaid, Sela Ward, & Jake Gyllenhaal. People should tell the story of about the little boy who cried "wolf" all the time and the resulting moral of the story.
So when are the sardines going to return to the Monterey/Carmel area?
RE: A new study of the weaning weights of California's elephant seal pups predicts that a 25-year trend of Pacific Ocean warming has ended.
A number of additional signs:
* Coldest, wettest and windiest spring in 30+ years (wettest since the 1890s).
* Salmon season in Santa Barbara longest in recent memory
* Deer were in upper pastures very early this year (in order to fatten up for onset of a very cold winter?)
