If you’ve been following the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) global heating releases, you know that there has been a lot of criticism by most scientists involved that the national governments are going out of their way to tone down the group’s conclusions so they don’t sound so dire and so the governments can justify doing the absolute minimum (in some cases that means nothing, nada, zip) to forestall global heating.
Now we have a new NASA commissioned study of the effects of global heating on the eastern United States (reported by The Seattle Post-Intelligencer) saying that says that average temperatures in the east are probably going to be 10 degrees hotter by 2085.
Why? Because the models used by other climate estimates overestimated the amount of rain that would cool the average temperatures down. Anyone ready for an average high of 102 in Jacksonville?
This is why I call it “global heating” instead of “global warming.”
