You know Travel I pretty much agree with your comment at #21 -
I was just feeling pissy… But… then look at what George does!
I don’t know how much of a denialist/contrarian you actually are
Give me a break, CC.
If that ain’t the favorite denialist tactic of all, take a few words out of a sentence or paragraph, focus on them and spin them to one’s hearts content…. all the while ignoring what the original paragraph was trying to express.
For the record, I doubt George is a died in the wool denialist/contrarian, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t resort to their tactics.

Now back to the point at hand - the jet stream’s behavior is being influenced by current global warming. . . and it is ridiculous to assume the jet stream can somehow remain independent.
We are warming the entire global and all physical phenomena on that global are being influenced and slightly altered by that global warming - that is beyond “common sense” that is known science and every new season’s batch of studies reconfirms as much.
The only way to avoid those facts and proofs is to ignore them which is what the Skeptical/denialist community have turned into such a high art form. And yes, that is something worth getting pissed over
But ok now that I got that out, how about a big group hug.
