Re: Emily

There was a great article in May or June's issue of Scientific American
about the greenhouse effect; I'll try to get it looked up and give you
the scoop if you don't have access. It was an awesome article!

This may sound like I'm running for office, David, but I think it's
<br>both. In the short term, I think it's the cyclical crap shoot that
<br>weather has always seemed to be--the stuff of the Farmer's Almanac.
But <br>I think this is playing out on top of significant long-term
change. A <br>key factor in What's-His-Name Grey's, the hurricane guru
at University <br>of Colorado, prognostications is El Nino--and the
occurrence, <br>recurrence of El Nino seems to be influenced by the
continual warming <br>of the earth.<br><br>The scary part is that these
effects are cumulative. The worst of what <br>you see today will be the
best you can hope for tomorrow. It took a <br>couple of hundred years of
reckless fossil-fuel emissions to get us <br>here--to the front edge of
reaping our harvest; it will surely take <br>that long a period of
constrained stewardship to get us back to a less <br>hazardous
environment, or even to one where we can maintain an <br>environmental

quo.<br><br>David, the problem with "theories" is a rhetorical one. Two
come to <br>mind--evolution and global warming. They are theories
because they have <br>not been definitively proven beyond all doubt.
Most intelligent people <br>understand that caveat; most intelligent
people also believe the <br>theories are true or very close to true. The
only significant deniers <br>are the Kansas state school board and the
current administration in <br>Washington.<br><br><br><br>On Jul 12,
