All I know is that I'm burning tons of oil this winter keeping my house warm. It is frickin' cold!

So I'm doing my part not only keeping my family warm inside, but the CO2 has a nice preventive measure of adding to future global temp, so to save my kids and someday-grandkids heating cash.

Looks good all-around!

On another point, I was observing a Chickadee bird today at my bird feeder. It was seemingly unperturbed by the blasts of cold and snow as it munched on a few sunflower seeds that my kind wife made available to it in the feeder. A thought passed through my mind: how the hell does this little puffball of nothing not completely freeze in half a minute? Especially the naked little twig-like things it has for legs and feet? And then I realized how poorly I would fair in comparison to this little birdie out there should I be standing outside with him at the feeder with nothing but my skin to protect me! We humans aren't very well adapted to cold climates without our technology, are we?

The bird is particularly impressive when you consider that smaller critters have a higher surface area-to-volume ratio than larger ones, increasing their heat loss rate. The secret must be the insulating air trapped by interlocking feathers combined with a fast metabolism.

They're predicting an end to the pause in five years with a return to the warming trend. That's good, when the opposite happens their busted.

Those folks will aways have an update to their prediction as long as the Gubermant keeps the edification standards set to pure propaganda, it will pass mustard.
