Global Warming, "Ooops", Make that Climate Change

On July 6, 2009, the San Francisco Chronicle reported the following:

The Bay Area just had its foggiest May in 50 years. And thanks to global warming, it's about to get even foggier.

That's the conclusion of several state researchers, whose soon-to-be-published study predicts that even with average temperatures on the rise, the mercury won't be soaring everywhere.

"There'll be winners and losers," says Robert Bornstein, a meteorology professor at San Jose State University. "Global warming is warming the interior part of California, but it leads to a reverse reaction of more fog along the coast."

This week, the Telegraph headline reads "Fog over San Francisco thins by a third due to climate change". Fog over San Francisco thins by a third due to climate change :

The sight of Golden Gate Bridge towering above the fog will become increasing rare as climate change warms San Francisco bay, scientists have found.

The coastal fog along the Californian coast has declined by a third over the past 100 years – the equivalent of three hours cover a day, new research shows.

And it is not just bad for scenery, the reduction in the cooling effect of the fog could damage the health of the huge Redwood Forests nearby.

No matter what the weather does these guys will blame it on "Global Warming". Except now they don't call it Global Warming anymore. Since the Earth has been cooling for the last few years they now call it "Climate Change". How can anyone possibly take these guys seriously?

Yep, Climate change, El-Nino, Global Warming has also given the the Olympics a challenge. We do live on the Wet (West) Coast. To bad about the spoiled rich kid want to be Australian. You can not deny your roots. I liked the U.S. fellow that said he felt the Canadians were cheering for him as well because he has relatives in Vancouver.

After taking several Geography classes at the University... I have come up with, Yes the climate is changing and the earth is experiencing a warming period. But this is what the earth does naturally and has been doing naturally for millions of years. Sure we do contribute some damaging effects, that I do believe we should do our part to help the environment, but at the end of the day this is a natural process we are not going to be able to stop simply by going green. I think everyone should do their part to the best we can as a globe, but really I believe it wouldn't make earth shattering effects (no pun intended) on "stopping" global warming. People tend to forget that the earth goes through cycles, and we are just experiencing one of them, yet again. I believe it is God's plan, and there is so much nature/science involved we really couldn't do THAT much to stop what is happening and maybe suppose to be happening.
