    The difference between here and there, is that it's been 4 years without water there and 3 years here. Even the Yukon is going without adequate precip. It's like the planet is rotating to where the area between N. Dakota and Mass is now the North Pole and we are where Mexico used to be. Think about it.

    The planet is rotating? Tilting? You mean figuratively as far as warming?

    That reminds me that the magnetic poles of the Earth are in the (sloooow) process of flipping, during which we'll have a few hundred years of little to no magnetic field to keep the radiation at bay.

    So they say but nobody has ay proof up besides speculation based on very little data.

    There is also the notion that imperfect humans build imperfect measuring devices to "study" phenomenon that they don't truly understand and expect to understand everything.

    We have along way to go before we can explain what is going on thousands of miles below the surface of the Earth. It's all hypotheses and speculation at this point IMO.

    No shit, just google "Dark Energy" and "Entanglement." IIRC, they found the Higgs Boson at energies about right in between what the Standard Model and the competing Super-Symmetry (multiverse) theories predicted. [shrugs] It's all a series of tubes, anyhow . . .

    And speaking of a "series of tubes", they're revving up the LHC again after two years of upgrades. Or rather, revving down to get to the near-absolute zero operating temps required.
