  After laying blacktop for some yrs I can take the heat but the more humid the harder.  After working with that 300 to 400 degree stuff when you walk away from it even 100+ temps feel cool.  At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

We're getting clobbered right now by tropical storm Deb, 55mph winds and tons of rain.

  I HOPE all stay safe with not much damage.
 
  It's dryer than a popcorn fart around here.  All the rain keeps missing us.  Brush fires started over the weekend.  Even someones bailer caught fire.

  You know I could enjoy this weather if we wouldn't have had such a wussy winter.  Nothing to look forward to.   Sad

Yeah- weather is weather? Then how well are they predicting the climate? Good enough for the EPA to order the shutdown of coal- fired power generation all over the country and for the courts to uphold the EPA's order?
We're in a heap o' trouble.

I do believe we are experiencing global warming, but I also believe the cause is that big bright ball in the sky, and there aint a dang thing we can do about it.

 This power plant is about 60mi from me.  It feeds large parts of MD,VA,and WV.  Uses roughly 15,000 tons of coal a day. Like any coal-burning power station, Mt. Storm produces airborne particles known as fly ash. After the hot combustion gases containing fly ash leave the station's boilers, they pass through multi-million dollar electrostatic precipitators. The precipitators function like giant electric air cleaners to remove 99 percent of the ash.

Mt. Storm Power Station also uses the latest technology to remove sulfur dioxide from the environment. Lime stone scrubbers capture approximately 95 percent of the SO2 from the burners. Combined with the limestone slurry, the SO2 becomes solid gypsum and is stored in a landfill.

The Mt. Storm Power Station is the largest coal-fired power station managed by Dominion. Mt. Storm's three units can generate nearly 1,600 megawatts of electricity – as much in one hour as 160 average homes use in one year.

Mt. Storm is located on Mt. Storm Lake in the rugged Allegheny Mountains of northeastern West Virginia. The 1,200-acre lake, built to serve the station, also serves as a public recreation area for fishing,boating,swimming,and a VERY popular site for scuba diving.  No charge for usage. I couldn't find the total area coverd by the installation including the lake but would guesstimate another 2 to 4 hundred acres.  Lets just round it off to 2000 acres total.  My point is that the amount of area covered by windmills that have been constructed in the last 10yrs or so around us covers much more area than the Mt. Storm plant.  So how much electric do they supply to the plublic?  None.

Mount Storm Power Station

I live within hearing distance of a coal fired power plant on the Ohio River, and can see it from the backside of my property. It also uses the same pollution controls as the Mt. Storm plant. Several years ago, there were some complaints from home owners that live next to the plant, about damage to their homes and cars from the ash. Extra scrubbers were added and the problem stopped. Other than that, and the noise (which is not that bad), and the power lines that come across my property, I have no complaints.

The EPA isn't shutting down coal- fired stations because of particulate like fly ash, or anything like that... the EPA is shutting them down because the emit CO2, which the EPA classified as a dangerous pollutant and the D.C.circuit court recently ruled that the EPA's efforts are ok... think they have power problems on the East coast right now, due to the storms? Just wait- blackouts will become the norm nationwide, but just think how we'll be saving the earth.

For every coal- fired generator we shut down, the Chinese are building twenty.
The "watermelons" (green outside/Red inside)are in control.

Temps have been flat- lined for about 15 yrs now. There has been no statistically significant trend for temps ranging either up or down.

The ultimate goal of those behind the warnings about Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change is to reduce the human population. Listen to the environmentalists long enough and they will eventually tell you of their plan. The thing is, they are more and more open about what their ultimate aims are and our POTUS is not only completely on board with the whole idea, but has packed his administration with some of the most virulent and dangerous of the true believers.

Weather is cyclical. When I was in grade school, there wasn't a winter that I didn't get a few days off from school because of the snow. When I was in high school, the winters seemed milder, and we might get 1 day off a year because of snow. When I was in college, when we got snow, it was more of a nuisance. Then winter started to hit with a vengence. It would snow and stay on the ground for months because it was so cold. We would have record snow falls for our area. Then it slowed down again, but just 3 years ago I went for 9 days without power because of a bad ice storm, and the snow wouldn't melt off my driveway.
Man made global warming is a farce created by the left to gain control of power distrabution.
I hear lefties say burning wood is ok for the environment, but it almost killed a friend of mine who was working in Kosovo. He was in a village in a valley, and everyone heated with wood. He got a serious lung infection from the smoke that hung in the valley. Yet coal is supposed to be bad for the environment. Isn't coal just ancient wood that has been compressed by the earth. I mean, how much chemical change can take place to make it so bad?
I also notice that temperatures are recorded in cities, where heat is stored and generated by vehicles, industry, buildings, and roadways. I check the temperature when I leave work in town, and when I get home in a rural area. The temperature at home is almost always 6-10 degrees cooler than in town.
Records that are broken are usually 50+ and sometimes 150+ years old, when industrialization of cities was far less than today. I think a more accurate comparison of record temp.s should be made from temp.s in very small towns in rural areas.
If you really want to compare global temperature changes, it should be made from areas away from cities, since cities have their own micro climates.
As I see it, any real temperature change is controled by that big bright ball in the sky, as it does get hotter and cooler in cycles that are unpredictable.
