I think what someone said about there always being a Big Heat Wave before a Big Chill was right. Back in the 70s it was the New Ice Age. I think it's possible for both to occur.

I do think, in my uneducated way, that global warming has been accelerated substantially. I don't know why, though.

And I think that there was a reason for the Bush Administration to be so adamant that there was no such thing as global warming. If there's nothing you can do about it, without having to force people to confront painful decisions and you lose their support at the same time... why tell anyone? Just pretend everything is ok, and hope it all blows away... or at least blows down the line far enough for your successor to have to deal with it instead of you.

You know, like how the Bush Administration intended to deal with Iraq this entire time and only recently admitted to.

As for the rest, Earth takes care of herself. Earth knows how to regulate herself. Just like a fever is the body's way of dealing with sickness, and vomiting and hives and all the other nasty stuff humans have to deal with. The body knows what it's doing, or rather what it's trying to do. Sometimes the cure is worse than what is ailing, is all.

Earth can take care of herself. Even if it means fucking over everyone in Bangladesh cyclically as an unintended result.

If there was a way to deal with global warming that put money in folks pockets it'd be done now. So hopefully all the 'big brains' and 'big thinkers' are finding ways to do just that, if that's what it takes to motivate them... instead of stockpiling money and hoping to deal with the consequences of bad decisions later, from your safe spot in the sky. Or leaving those consequences for the 'next guy' to deal with.
