Did you see this article? http://www.pastpeak.com/archives/2006/07/oh_my_god.htm

"The vast Amazon rainforest is on the brink of being turned into desert, with catastrophic consequences for the world's climate, alarming research suggests. And the process, which would be irreversible, could begin as early as next year.

Studies by the blue-chip Woods Hole Research Centre, carried out in Amazonia, have concluded that the forest cannot withstand more than two consecutive years of drought without breaking down."

Yesterday, a local weatherman in North San Diego county pointed out that the local ocean water reached 76 degrees in places. He said that was warm enough to sustain a huricane. That's somewhat unbelievable... Huricanes in California?

Wow. I remember the ocean off California, used to surf there 40 years ago. Brrr. The Atlantic was much warmer and the Gulf of California, a bathtub. Indeed, that is Gulf water temperatures!


As for the Amazon, an SF writer, K.Dick (?) wrote about a man a hundred years hence, time travels to Brazil and finds himself stranded in the Amazon DESERT. Due to pollution causing global warming.

Yes. The rain forest wasn't named the rain forest because they couldn't think of anything else to name it.

The changes that have occurred in the last 35 years are the killer.

Facti, tell Arthur it is a pain to reply at his wonderful blog. I read it every day, though. And I love you all, even the cat, don't tell Arthur that, though.
