Re: Climate change?
I think you'll be hard pressed to find anyone in the Chicago area who will say there hasn't been a change of trends in our weather. Mostly that change has been in temperature. It's almost November and it was close to 80 yesterday. Today the high is predicted to be 76. But the leaves are still falling, just as they do every year at this time. Maybe the trees know something we don't.
Of course, there's the loss of the earth's magnetic field that still is weakening today. And that means solar rays will more seriously affect our weather. We know that the poles reverse themselves and that it has happened about 25 times in the last 5 million years. It is believed that flip takes about 1,000 years. The last time that happened was about 740,000 years ago, so we're long overdue. So we may see ever increasing weather changes in our future if we are entering another period of magnetic pole reversal.
