Something Has Changed, But It’s Not The Sun

Something Has Changed, But It’s Not The Sun
While it’s true our sun is giving less energy to our planet, the planet’s surface temperature has been soaring since 1960. Check out the NASA BLOG February 13, 2020, 14:02 PST
There Is No Impending 'Mini Ice Age'
As for brutally cold winters and insufferably hot summers with too much rain... that’s just how it’s been in the Midwest for several years now. These days I’m surprised when the crops do well!

SE Michigan

Ask a farmer about getting equipment into fields during planting AND harvest seasons since 2011.

The earth has been in a

The earth has been in a GLOBAL COOLING PATTERN for at least 10 years people! We have been lied to about global warming for
years as well & when that did not work the term was changed to climate change. About ready to jump off a chair with a rope!
Ya'll enjoy another brutal winter for 2020/2021. I am going to Florida!!

Weather

To make any long range plans based on long range weather forecast is an exercise in futility if you live in MI. The furthest you can look out with any hope of accuracy (barely) is a week or two. For the daily forecast look out the window to confirm.

@KB Second that Solar Minimum!

This solar cycle is indeed influencing the weather. Our ionosphere is contracted & much colder than normal. Crops aren't growing as well since the sun isn't as strong. The crops aren't able to balance the air as optimally as normal. The sun isn't blowing away the cosmic radiation since we are in solar minimum therefore we are in an "Earth Microwave" getting cooked.

Weather

If you live in Michigan you know no one can predict the weather. Best thing to do is look out the window and dress for what you see. If you don’t like that MOVE somewhere else!

Solar minimum

Don't see any references to one of the deepest solar minimums in recent history. Would be strange not to have any effect.

Weather

Since the whole Global Warming thing showed up Michigan has been cold every summer. Nights are rarely above 60. I know I can't change it. But I'm sooooo sick of it. Seems I'm never getting out of the winter blues. I never want to do anything. Why plant a garden. Why go swimming. It's always chilly out. I'm with Joe. Step off a chair with a rope!!!!

Weather and people

The weather is just like people crazy !!!!

April showers

Grand Marais , MI... Today could be , most snow , in one day ? Hvy/wet , blowing sideways @ 40mph+ .. Is this the last of it ? Looks like a cool week till next wknd ! Thrn the end of the mo. Let FREEDOM RING ! :)
