Sorry, more off topic.....

I have been something of a climate change sceptic, but anecdotally it is beginning to look as though weather patterns right around the world are beginning to change, again.

Could this be connected to the next ice age, perhaps a few hundred years down the track?

NYTimes.com: The human-driven buildup of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere appears to have ended a slide, many millenniums in the making, toward cooler summer temperatures in the Arctic, the authors of a new study report.

Scientists familiar with the work, published journal Science, said it provided fresh evidence that human activity is not only warming the globe, particularly the Arctic, but could also even fend off what had been presumed to be an inevitable descent into a new ice age over the next few dozen millenniums.

It would be ironic indeed if man's insatiable thirst for fossil fuels has actually prevented the coming of the next ice age..... imagine if the media tries to explain that one?

Hi Hugh,
Nice Digs

Climate change due to human influence? Maybe...we are just the latest infestation on this planet and are insignificant in the span of it's history. We are like a virus that infects, a common cold that cause temporary discomfort and is eventually shrugged off. This is our fate.
I don't worry about such things and I'm constantly sickened by the feeble attempts by government to foist the "green" BS on us and let industry get away with murder.
We have a shopping bag fee here now - 5 cents per bag. The idea is to discourage people from using them. Now when I go to the grocery store to buy some food the check out girl is trying to stuff as much in each bag as possible - to save me another 5 cents. They ruin the bags, making them unusable for anything else. They don't listen when I say "it's only another nickel...won't break me"
The other day I bought a package of steaks, you know, RAW beef...she put it in on top of my fresh loaf of bread! What an idiot! So, the plan, save the environment and choke on the E-Coli...
At the hardware store: I bought a bunch of small plumbing parts. The girl checked it all in, I paid with credit card and she says 'Cya"...I says "what, no bag?"...She says "that's 5 cents extra. You want one?"...I says "Sure, put that 5 cent charge on my credit card - here it is again, I don't have any change....." NOT! Ridiculous! "I can't just give you one" she says "we could be charged!"
Give ME a break!
I could go on but I'll spare you.

Hello guy's

There a excellent documentary, in few parts, about global warming and the complex consequences, in the David Suzuki program.

Here is the links;

I've been wondering what effect the approaching magnetic pole flip will do. Imagine all the new tweeks the tweekers will find that improves their audio!

It appears that the current number of sunspots are at an all time low.
The peak of Solar Cycle 24 in 2013 is predicted to be one of the lowest since solar cycle 16 in 1928, and 9th weakest since the 1750s. Appears that there is a strong correlation between sunspot activity and solar output.The Little Ice Age, Maunder Minimum ((1645-1715) and the Dalton Minimum (1790-1820) corresponded with long periods of low sunspot activity.
Quoted in part from an editorial in Silicon Chip's current issue.
Kind Regards
Alex
P.S.
Perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned your "good mate" Leo ?

Thanks John, Gaetan and Sandy,

I agree, there is strong correlation with sunspot activity and solar output. Greenhouse gas buildup is, however, also a cause, at no other time in geological history has CO2 built up so quickly as the last fifty years, and this would seem to be connected with human activity - and a good deal of bovine wind, not to mention electricity generation and transportation. So, there are many factors, which makes it fertile ground for interest groups and lunatics alike.

Leo? Ah, no, we cannot deny him his opinions, smelly though they be. As you know, like you I'm most interested in SS, but I was enraged when I read his withering editorial about tube amplifiers. No one has the right to pour derision upon the choices of others just because they have a different opinion; the facts speak otherwise, there are many who would never deviate from their thermionic choice and good luck to them. Intolerance in any form, particularly from an influential soapbox like the editor's chair of Silicon Chip, is not on, and aside from being morally wrong is actually indefensible factually. The man is plain wrong, THD does NOT fully define the sound of an amp, and good tube amps can sound sublime. Just silliness really.

In early Feb this year my state, Victoria, suffered dreadful bushfires which all but completely destroyed two towns in forested regions just north and north east of Melbourne. The experts tell us that the combined carbon output of these fires on 7th February exceed Victoria's complete carbon output for power generation and transportation for more than one year.

IOW, while there is unquestionably too much carbon dioxide emitted by power and transportation across the planet, natural disasters, particularly bushfires and volcanic eruptions, have the potential to hugely exceed our daily use anyway..... and no one is talking about the greatest greenhouse gas of all, water vapour.......

Cheers,

Hugh

Hello Hugh

I did not see that editorial from Leo Simpson, which month/year it was, I'm currious to read it and I will read it on the Silicon Chip web site.

Thank

Bye

Gaetan
