Butterflies and Global Warming

First of all, for those who have inquired, the butterfly has not been found.  Evidently she found some hidden nook to crawl into and die.  There is certainly no hope that she could live more than a day or so without food.  I suppose some day when we are least expecting it, we will happen onto her remains.  Or maybe not.  Oh, well, such is life, I guess.


A friend sent me some material in response to my global warming post that I thought was really interesting, so if anyone else is intrigued by the topic, you may want to check this out.  John Coleman, a meteorologist with KUSI and founder of the Weather Channel, has a very interesting article on the subject at http://www.icecap.us/  (center column) and there is also a 5-part series of videos on youtube called Global Warming – Doomsday Called Off which are fascinating.  I especially liked the last one, which pointed out that the computer climate models which have been used to illustrate the global warming trend are the same models they use to forecast the weather for next week, and we all know how accurate that is! 


And of course, since some believe the flutter of a butterfly’s  wings can cause a tornado, surely it could surely cause global warming, too, right?

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    Just think, the disappearance of your butterfly might be the catalyst that causes global warming.  Now we will actually have a person to blame for it!!  šŸ™‚
