Stanford Grad Doesn’t Know To Use The Internet

The ocean and atmosphere may be cold, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t hot.

Don’t let cool spring fool you, experts say global warming is a fact

YAKIMA, Wash. — With this year’s heavy snowpack and a cool, wet spring that has delayed some harvests, it might be tempting to conclude that global warming isn’t an issue in the Yakima Valley.

But some of the state’s most respected climate experts say the planet is still warming as carbon dioxide levels rise faster than ever, and the results have major implications for the region.

Polar oceanographer Miles McPhee said unusual temperatures, plus the recent increase in tornadoes and storms nationally, indicate of a growing imbalance in the earth’s weather patterns, caused by a rapid increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the oceans.

“You can tie that to the energy we’ve been seeing in these storms,” said McPhee, a Naches resident and graduate of Stanford University and the University of Washington. “The earth has to address this imbalance by moving heat around, and it’s doing it in a way that might not be advantageous for us.”

It’s true that temperatures in the Pacific Northwest have been cooler than average this year, but McPhee said temperatures in the Southwest have been higher than average

That is simply not true.

    Didn’t you hear? They moved the Pacific Northwest to New Mexico.

  2. Maybe he thinks Texas is “the Southwest” in which case he’s a much better climatologist than he is a geographer.

  3. Andy WeissDC says:

    Most of us people from the East think that West Texas is the Southwest. Calfornia doesn’t count, that’s the West Coast.

    Do they not have any temperature data from Wendover/West Wendover?

    Also nice to see that we’re still running about avg here in northern CO.

    Stanford Grad Doesn’t Know To Use The Internet?

    He knows how……. but the government doesn’t want us to really use the internet. So he doesn’t use it.
