>> There is nothing nonsensical about making reference to a comparative event in the past when you have no existing event in the future to which the comparison can be made.

If the event to be compared hasn’t occurred, the historical event would only be potentially comparative rendering the assertion of a nonsensical comparison comparatively relevant.

It would be irrational to compare one’s first child to the second that has to be conceived. And for the fugly, it would likely be a fantasy to refer to the unlikely one night stand as a comparative event.

Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

...or IOW coal, and heritage seeds will be of some importance in the future. Coal miners will certainly appreciate the lift from pariah to prince. Hopefully we will not have forgotten how to use coal to produce energy.

Year Without a Summer

The Year Without a Summer (also known as the Poverty Year, The Summer that Never Was, Year There Was No Summer, and Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death[1]) was 1816, in which severe summer climate abnormalities caused average global temperatures to decrease by 0.4–0.7 °C (0.7–1.3 °F),[2] resulting in major food shortages across the Northern Hemisphere.[3][4] It is believed that the anomaly was caused by a combination of a historic low in solar activity with a volcanic winter event, the latter caused by a succession of major volcanic eruptions capped by the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, in the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia), the largest known eruption in over 1,300 years. The Little Ice Age, then in its concluding decades, may also have been a factor.

Obama Climate Advisor Stepping Down

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s top adviser on environmental and climate issues is leaving.

Heather Zichal has been advising Obama for five years and is the architect of his climate change plan. She also advises Obama on energy issues.

Zichal plans to leave the White House within a few weeks. The White House hasn’t announced who will replace her.

But her departure comes at a key time for Obama’s climate plan. The Environmental Protection Agency is moving ahead with emissions limits for new and existing carbon plants to curb greenhouse gases.

Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough, says the White House will keep pressing ahead on efforts to reduce carbon dioxide pollution and prepare communities for the effects of climate change.

That is a false analogy used as a strawman argument. Try again.

Fine. Call it the Algore Minimum if you like. I think that would be perfect, don't you?

Perfect.

Actually the EPA has proposted regulations to ban (90% of) woodstoves (forcing people to buy “ultra-clean-burning” stoves, which are much more expensive...and never needed in real wilderness/very rural areas (where woodstoves are often used)), even prohibiting selling a used woodstove...BUT, I don’t believe the regulations are in effect yet, SO....TIME TO WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN!

Any Inspectors knocking on doors to enforce something like that will be asking for trouble.
