I love global warming. I'll have to put the canvas roof on my boat so I don't overheat in the sun when I go fishing though.

We still have nine months of this solar cycle left. This is supposed to be a bigger solar cycle, we have one every four cycles. After this cycle is over we should have a lot of snow here in the Upper Peninsula. The last one was in the early sixties and we got wopped. I only compared weather patterns here with the fourth cycle because that's all I was interested in. I checked back about four "4 cycles" against any information I could find about weather. I couldn't find much before that.

If you just think, "Hey, we broke all kinds of heat records. Something big is going on!" then I think you aren't looking at the big picture. Most of the records we broke for heat were from around 1988-89. Not really that mind blowing when you look at in perspective. Then before that the records go back to early 1900. It's just cycles.
The flapping of a Monarch Butterfly's wings can bring change to the world, but we need to have an open eye to first see the flapping of those wings and then we need to have an open mind, an open heart and be willing to give the time to want to learn and recognize the connections the Monarch has to North America and the Global Community.
The Monarch Butterfly therefore is a metaphor for the scientific theory that a single occurrence, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, can change the course of the universe forever. One can also interpret the quote as the theory that everything matters. If you change the smallest of life's details then you change its outcome.
Just as the tiny insect that we know as the Monarch Butterfly seems insignificant in the whole scheme of life, once we learn about its life, its perseverance, against everything that threatens its everyday survival, we come to love and respect an insect.
That love and respect makes us want to learn more about it and when we do, the connections that we make, will forever change the way that we view the world and those around us and hopefully open our eyes to begin working towards a better world for the Monarchs, for us, our families, our Canadian and Mexican friends across our borders, Polar Bears in the Arctic suffering effects of global warming and a changing environment, and so many more global issues.

This planet goes in cycles. And none of us are here for long enough to actually realize the signicance of that.
‘Our weather is really stuck in a rut because the jet stream is further south than it should be at this time of the year – over France and northern Spain – and we are under a blanket of low pressure on the northern side of it,’ he said.

Looks like there are a few of us here from Fort Worth. Summers always suck here. I work outside everyday and everyday I dread it, but yes it's normal for us here. There are times I'm like, damn it's hot...but that's pretty frequent.
