WOW!!! News Max has started catching up with XtnYoda on the global warming insanity!!! For some reason it gives me a very warm fuzzy feeling inside? Perhaps News Max has been peeking in on XtnYoda? They've picked up on the undersea volcanoes XtnYoda posted about earlier (go to the first article in November, 06 for the videos!) and the warming effect on the oceans. Go take a look!
Hydrothermal hot springs on the seafloor were also far more abundant than predicted. "We expected this to be a hydrothermally dead ridge, and almost every time our water measurement instrument came up, they showed evidence of hydrothermal activity, and once we even 'saw' an active hot spring on the sea floor," said Dr. Jonathan Snow, the leader of the research group from the Max Planck Institute.
Remember, that "magmatism" is red hot magma seeping up from the ocean floor. It's like putting a burner under a pot of water.
In short, heated oceans are warming the globe and setting up a scenario that includes among its consequences more and increasingly violent hurricanes, tornadoes, and blizzards....
And they are keenly following the "Al Gore Effect" as well on the same article...
Analysis: Al Gore Ducks Northeast BlizzardPhil Brennan
Thursday, Feb. 15, 2007
As a blizzard of snow and ice pummels the Northeast after trouncing the Midwest, and waves of Arctic cold fronts drop much of America below sub freezing weather, the $64,000 question is, Where is Al Gore?
Gore claims that global warming is an immediate problem facing the United States and the world, and places like New York and Chicago could feel like Caribbean haunts.
If there is any doubt that God has a sense of humor, it has to be dispelled by a headline in Wednesday's Drudge Report: "House hearing on 'warming of the planet' canceled after ice storm."
He followed up with this: "Save it for a sunny day: Maryville Univ. in St. Louis area canceling screening of Al Gore's 'Inconvenient Truth' because of a snowstorm."
What must have evoked the loudest laugh in heaven is the notion that if global warming is really occurring, puny mankind is going to overcome it by legislation and business regulation that would strangle the U.S. economy and be overseen by the super efficient United Nations.
I am feeling delightedly vindicated!!! Thank you Al Gore for the fun.
