Yeah but we live in an age of instant information, radar and satellites number in the thousands, news hits people worldwide in a heartbeat, the media and our governments have driven the whole global warming thing down our throats till we spewed, add to that people love drama, they almost want something to be wrong... And add to the fact that people are obsessed with breaking records and they'll lay claim to anything they can like 'wamest april 7th in 18 years in Adelaide' and use that as proof of climate change. There are literally hundreds of thousands of records we could break.
If you look at our history, with and without mankind on the planet, it's always been creating havoc.
Many of the culprits including earthquakes, tornados, floods etc are actually happening less today than even 70 years ago.
I'm not implying something isn't happening, I'm saying something always seems to be happening.
I think we are looking down the same scope Rich316.
If you take the time to read most of my posts of interest (listed above just a little ways) you will discover that most of my supporting evidence, that Global Warming is not due to carbon emissions from mankind, relay the same concept regarding historic climate changes.
The only difference between what you are implying in the above quote and what I have been proposing is that I am linking very probable causes to our current climate change and linking them to the polar vortex (which in itself something had to cause the polar vortex to migrate). Seeing as one of my earlier posts in this thread points one to the empirical evidence/records of what the largest contributing greenhouse gas, H20/water vapor, is on our planet today, the concept that Global Warming (the Al Gore take on it) is pretty much a mute point and is very far off base... carbon emissions only contribute to less than 5% of the total green house gas emissions to date.
The rest of the thread is diving into the implications and evidence of the external and internal planetary forces that are contributing to the polar vortex offset and what kind of an impact this means for us all regarding "extreme weather patterns".
So, I agree with your statement...but had to adjust the perspective of your statement a bit as there is an ample amount of data out there which points to our Sun as being the primary catalyst in what we are experiencing today. A few pages back in this post I even include a sunspot activity to Earth temperature chart which shows how over the past several hundred thousand years the Earth's temperature is directly proportional to the Sun's sunspot activity...and seeing as H20 is the primary driving force in the green house gases which contribute to global warming (as well as climate changes) when the Sun radiates more energy upon the Earth...the solid form of water (ICE) turns to liquid form (Water) which in turn increases the surface area for all bodies of water on the planet which in turn increases the evaporation rate of water into the air (vapor form) which finally...contributes to the global warming of the Earth...that then...can play a role in extreme climate change weather patterns.
As such... the typical "Global Warming Carbon Emissions" line of thought, while a good one as we do not want to pollute the planet as best we can, is completely debunked and nothing more than a *political* tool that the liberal left wing progressive socialist minded individuals of today are using to ~control~ and ~tax~ our energy consumption rate.
Which is the "primary" theme behind this thread...the rest is more of a "what this means to everyone from here forward" as well as supporting evidence that my initial projections on the types of weather we should be expecting have come to pass and or will come to pass as more information becomes available.
