Quite a view.
Have you been to the top of any of those mountains?
It does seem like one ardous trek. Do you live in a small community or is it a remote house in the middle of the desert?RBG wrote: ↑February 19th, 2019, 8:45 pmno but it's part of a wilderness area so totally possible. if i was rich they'd bury the utility lines. but then i couldn't afford to live here
according to forest service info, it's very rugged and no trails exist. the highest peak is about 7000 ft. it means a lot to me to live near wild places but i prefer to hike trails lol. yes i'm a wimp. people die out there
Cool! I take it you like it there, or do you secretly long for a metropolis?RBG wrote: ↑February 19th, 2019, 10:24 pmit is a small community about ten miles from a bigger town, where i work. i have never lived in a city. there are drawbacks like no decent cinemas and restaurants are limited (although the mexican food is fantastic!) but with internet these things don't matter so much. phone service sucks but i have wifi calling also it's safe enough here i've been gone for 2-3 weeks at a time and left a window open for my cat with no worries.
i've lived at this spot for two years next month
Nice! Yeah I bet the Sedona area is mobbed with people these days... siiiigh. I could do with fewer of them as well, esp when hiking.RBG wrote: ↑February 20th, 2019, 7:37 pmi like it here! i'm not big on people. i enjoy birding from my porch though
peeptoad i was in sedona last year. it's gorgeous but kind of crowded. i prefer the chiricahuas where i see more deer than people lol
i feel lucky to live here, there aren't enough wild places left. another winter storm is due tmrw
I haven't been to Taos (driven past on I-25, and had our car 'destroyed' by hail just outside Taos), but I'm under the impression that it's so expensive that only the rich and their trophy homes are left (a bit like Santa Fe).
Some key consequences from their brochure:Armoreska wrote: ↑June 4th, 2019, 9:34 pmHigh time someone came out and said it

Not just Cali. A quarter of the US could have record breaking heat this week. Shit is fucked. One of the best things about living in the PNW used to be the unparalleled beautiful summers. Now they come and I just count down the days until Autumn.Armoreska wrote: ↑June 8th, 2019, 2:19 pmApparently more heat for California coming

Well yes, most definitely the source of the heat is more important than the trap for the heat. But how much variation can sun's temporary changes introduce Maunder minimum only dropped it by average of 1C after 50 years, and then returned. So if the same cooling happens on year 1, it'll just nullify the current warming, and the near future CO2/methane effect will still be greater.Cippenham wrote: ↑July 7th, 2019, 11:54 amSo that means the massive effect on the climate is solar activity, with a cooling minimum cold period coming for many years to be followed by warming period. But it mentions there has been a warming period. No mention of humans having an effect on any of it as far as I can see. We think we are so important but we are as ants compared to the power of the sun.
It is mentioned in the last line of the paper. Human-induced factors are outside of the scope of that particular study. So you should not draw any conclusions or make relations between what is presented in the paper and the human influence on climate change.
