***The center of the Corn Belt, now in Iowa, will move south to Kansas, says Archibald.***
Back about 1977 PROGRESSIVE FARMER magazine said that crops grown in Illinois would now be grown in Alabama due to the coming ice age.
Then last year they began to beat the drum for GLOBAL WARMING! and crops would be moved farther north because of it.
Good! Maybe we will start to get some decent snow in western Colorado during hunting season. That snow is needed to drive the elk down from the mountains.
Ernie, thank you for the post of another scientist who remembers that historical climate study is also a factor in modeling the ‘future climate’ possibilities.
The latest solar cycle max is passing. How inactive will the sun get?
Hot damn, more liberals fleeing south to leave me the hell alone.
At 1st in the early 70's it was Global Cooling. Then came the hole in ozone scam. Followed by Global Warming. Then changed to Climate Change (after it was determined that warming stopped about 10 years ago). Now it's going to have to be updated again to Global Cooling.
I may be wrong here but I have yet to hear their explanation of the ice age, the melting of the ice age, the mini ice age there after, and it’s melting.....all before the evil SUV’s, coal and oil.
Good. We haven’t seen a decent snow at the farm since 1979. We had days of snow in the winter of ‘77 - ‘78. We went around for what seemed like weeks in the snow and ice.
Since then it has been just ice and wrecked the trees.
Before that the early 60’s were warm. We had roses up until Thanksgiving back then. The 90’s and ‘00s have been unremarkable save for the droughts.
It has happened before and it will happen again. The sun rules.
These guys are pretty smart. It is November in the northern hemisphere and it is fixing to snow.
Warming, cooling, same thing. It’s a disaster either way, according to libbies, and it’s our fault — especially that Bush person.
