… “Climate” is measured in 30-year segments. Conversely, “weather” is described in days, weeks and months.
Anyone knowledgeable in climatology, meteorology, paleontology and geology knows the complexities of the “climate cycles” that have taken place for thousands of years. Exhibiting different periodicities, cycles frequently overlap with, and occur inside, one another.
… Because cycles occur within cycles, one can see how naïve it is, for anyone to predict global temperatures with any certainty — even 10 or 20 years from now. That Earth has remained in equilibrium, as far as supporting human life during the past 300,000 years — seems nothing short of miraculous.
