Buying a house

Yes, my wife and I are buying a house. We should close May 30. We'll be living just outside of Abingdon. I know that this is probably the wrong time to be buying, but what do you do (maybe rent).

Global Warming Thoughts

I never really expected to post as many article on global warming as I have. They're mainly information links. I believe that Global Warming is real. I just don't believe that we may have played as big a role causing it as some would have us to believe.

Almost all of the articles about have the term "very likely" when talking about our carbon footprint causing the warming. It's not definite. Our understanding of the earth's systems are not complete, but people are trying. Newton's laws are flawed, but they worked just enough. Later, they were refined by scientists like Einstein. Global Warming will be understood eventually and what causes it may not be what we think it is now.

Please don't misunderstand me. I don't want to breath exhaust everyday. I think that it's a good thing to clean up our ways. It is wrong to use lies and half truths to change people's behavior.

Global Warming on Mars

There's an article out in this months' Nature on Martian Global Warming (editor's summary). I don't have access to read the Nature article. There a short article from Reuters on CNN's website.

It's interesting how they throw this in the following commentary:

"On Earth, carbon dioxide traps infrared radiation which can affect global climate. This a phenomenon is known as the greenhouse effect. Fossil fuel emissions add to the problem."

I wonder if the Nature article made that claim.
