Hmm.. a bit about autism, MRIs, genetics, and engineering. Aiyre has her next mock MRI tomorrow.

Hmm.. this article seems to contradict the crap Norm some anonymous poster was posting. It is asserting that Gore's movie, which I would still like to see, has the science right.

One thing that I haven't seen in all this global warming debate is... "What is the preferred global temperature"? I would guess that the global warmees are saying that today's temperature or that of 50 years ago is the absolute perfect temperature and that it should never change from that.

I would think another 5 degrees or so would be great. I'd love to see palm trees up at Lake Winnipesauke NH and a little warmer swimming water. Have you stepped into the ocean off Cape Cod; even in July...it's damn cold!!!

Look at all the frozen northern lands that would open up for farming and population growth. I would think that we might have a net gain in usable land balanced against that lost from rising oceans.

So, what is the perfect global temperature anyways?

5 degrees warmer and there would be no ocean off of cape cod because cape cod would be under water. That whole ocean levels rising because of melting polar ice thing.

Warmer temperatures mean more atmospheric energy which in turn leads to larger and stronger storm. Warmer seas would mean that more hurricanes could hit MA.

Doesn't sound good to me.

Global weather pattern changes lead to changes in which areas get rain and which do not. People tend to live in areas with water. Those changes in weather patterns mean people would need to move to the 'newly wet' areas.

Lots of existing farmland could be transformed into desert and a lack of quick organization response could mean massive food shortages and famines.
