Allar hinar fjölmörgu ógnir loftslagshlýnunarinnar...





Bloggaranum hefur stundum verið legið á hálsi fyrir að gera lítið úr meintri hnatthlýnun af mannavöldum, en eins og flestir vita þá hefur frá lokum litlu ísaldar fyrir 150 árum hlýnað um því sem næst 0,8 gráður Celcíus. Sem betur fer. vilja margir meina, en ekki eru allir jafn ánægðir með þessa hlýnun sem nemur svo sem 0,006 gráðum á ári að meðaltali. Hluti af mannavöldum og hluti af náttúrunnar völdum.

Sem sagt, bloggarinn vill bæta aðeins fyrir misgjörðir sínar og birta langan lista yfir fjölmargar greinar sem sýna okkur við hverjar ógnir er að eiga. Vonandi eru flestar krækjurnar virkar, en það er nú einusinni þannig að þær eiga til að gufa upp fyrirvaralaust. Reynið þó að smella á nokkrar þeirra sem eru í listanum hér fyrir neðan, sumt er einstaklega fróðlegt, t.d. asteroid strike risk:

Auðvitað verður að rannsaka öll áhrif hins mikla blórabögguls. Víst er þetta ógnarlangur listi og því hljóta ógnirnar að vera miklar. Að minnsta kosti margar... Samt er það nú einhvern vegin svo að bloggarinn er mjög þakklátur fyrir að ekki skuli vera eins kalt á Fróni og fyrir 150 árum. Það er auðvitað bara eigingirni, sem lesendur bloggsins eru auðvitað hjartanlega ósammála, er ekki svo?



Gerum ráð fyrir að myndin efst á síðunni sé tekin nákvæmlega á norðurpólnum: Í hvaða átt er bjössi að horfa?



Vonandi verður sumarið hlýtt og gott. Það var ekki amalegt að njóta tuttugu stiga hitans Hvítasunnuhelgina sem er að líða, og fylgjast með gróðrinum sem kunni sér ekki læti.  Horfa á grasið spretta og trén laufgast...   Og setja með eigin hendi niður 160 lítil tré sem eiga eftir að vaxa og dafna á komandi árum, nærast á koltvísýringi og njóta sumarhitans... Hver veit nema það verði gnótt af hvorutveggja, en þá kætist að minnsta kosti blessaður gróðurinn... Það er nefnilega ekki allt neikvætt, þó svo að fyrirsögn pistilsins sé dálítið ógnvænleg Smile.

Já, það virðist vera gnótt af efni um ógnirnar (hef svo sem ekki skoðað alla tenglana)...þó svo hægt sé að finna eitthvað jákvætt einnig.

Svar: Bjössi horfir til suðurs.

2 Smámynd: Höskuldur Búi Jónsson

Ágúst: Neikvæðu áhrif hnattrænnar hlýnunar á landbúnað, heilsu, efnahag og umhverfi - gjörsamlega kaffæra hin fáu jákvæðu áhrif.

Hér er betur flokkaður listi og vísindalegri en sá sem þú birtir: Positives and negatives of global warming

Höskuldur Búi Jónsson, 24.5.2010 kl. 19:31

3 Smámynd: Emil Hannes Valgeirsson

Nú er Ágúst alveg búinn að kaffæra ykkur loftslagsbræður í dómsdagsmálum, þið toppið þetta aldrei.

4 Smámynd: Guðmundur Jónsson

Ef muydin er tekin nákvæmlega á norðurpólnum þá er bjössi að horfa lítið eitt vestan við hánorður um það bil 350°

Guðmundur Jónsson, 25.5.2010 kl. 17:41

5 Smámynd: Guðmundur Jónsson

Þegar ég var búin að senda þetta horfði ég aftur á myndina og sá þá, mér til mikillar skelfingar að þetta er ekki rétt hjá mér, hann horfir í 10° lítið eitt austan við norður

Guðmundur Jónsson, 25.5.2010 kl. 17:47

6 Smámynd: Ágúst H Bjarnason

Á norðurpólnum liggja allar leiðir til suðurs. Svarið hans Svatla er því rétt. Austur eða vestur er ekki til þar.

Ágúst H Bjarnason, 26.5.2010 kl. 05:51

7 Smámynd: Höskuldur Búi Jónsson

Mig grunar að Guðmundur sé að hugsa um segulpólinn

Höskuldur Búi Jónsson, 26.5.2010 kl. 08:28

8 Smámynd: Guðmundur Jónsson

Ef myndin er tekinn akkurat á norðurpólnum eins og segir í gátunni þá er bjössi ekki á norðurpólnum. Hann horfir á norðurpólinn eða í um það bil 10 gráður.

Ég hefði aldrei nent að svara þessu nema af því að ég sá að Svatli svaraði rangt.

Guðmundur Jónsson, 26.5.2010 kl. 08:39

9 Smámynd: Ágúst H Bjarnason

Þetta er auðvitað hárétt hjá Guðmundi. Bjössi og ljósmyndarinn geta ekki verið samtímis á norðurpólnum, nema þá að ljósmyndarinn sitji á baki hans, eða öfugt...

Ekki var ég búinn að fatta þetta

Ágúst H Bjarnason, 26.5.2010 kl. 08:44

Sniðugur Guðmundur

Sveinn Atli Gunnarsson, 26.5.2010 kl. 08:55

Þetta var óneitanlega mjög snjallt hjá þér Guðmundur

Reyndar má gera ráð fyrir því að hægt sé að segja að myndefnið á photoshoppaðri mynd geti vel verið skilin þannig að um sé að ræða ísbjörn á Norðupólnum eins og Ágúst lagði þetta greinilega upp með. En hitt er svo annað að þetta var sniðugur vinkill hjá Guðmundi

Sveinn Atli Gunnarsson, 26.5.2010 kl. 12:19

Bæta við athugasemd

Ekki er lengur hægt að skrifa athugasemdir við færsluna, þar sem tímamörk á athugasemdir eru liðin.
