I live in Wales. We really know how to handle tepid temperature rain.

The problem with British weather, is that it constantly changes. We lost the seasons a long time ago. Best 'summer' weather usually happens in Spring and Autumn. Summer tends to be like spring or even winter these days.

We've been saying the same about the Pacific NorthWest (PNW) here, where I live, for the over 60 years I've been living.

Good thing we got the planet to warm back up or we would be doomed!

A Geoengineering ‘Cocktail’ Could Dull the Pain of Climate Change
Combining multiple climate engineering strategies at the same time could dampen the impacts of global warming while avoiding loses in global precipitation levels.

If you fund it they will come.

Fixing something that isn't broke, using methods untested and likely more risk than the alledged "problem".

They make an interesting point that at that time (1985?) there had been 30 years of cooling. However, the common myth is that the Earth has been warming continuously since the industrial revolution, 150 years ago.

Below the button is the past 800,000 years of climate change. I see no human footprint in this data. I do see that we are at the peak of a warming trend that will end in the next 100,000+ years of ice age...



Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

OK, here's a new conspiracy theory for you (my creation today).


"In the 1980's, the dark world government created a secret plan to warm the Earth to avoid the impending ice age. And it worked!!! Better than they planned!


Let a bunch of idiots play with the climate and we are in BIG BIG trouble!
