Blizzards (not the Dairy Queen kind)

You may be thinking to yourself during these recent snow events and record cold temps we’ve been having – “global warming? No way.”

Not so fast. The way I understand it, Michio Kaku, author of “Physics of the Future” explains what’s happening. In a nutshell, as global warming creates more heat it causes more moist air which causes more precipitation. This means more random fluxuations in the weather. In turn, record amounts of snow and storms.

Blizzards. Brought to you by Mother Nature, not the Dairy Queen.

Here’s one simple way to help decrease our contribution of global warming. Move your thermostat down 2° in winter and up 2° in summer. With this one simple adjustment you could save about 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide a year. So even if it’s hard to imagine global warming is real in these arctic-like temperatures, let’s help Mother Nature out anyway. Maybe she’ll take it easier on us in the future.
