it is going to change

my view on all this is that there is a natural cyclical thing that happens with nature
if you look way back as far as we can look this has been happening
we are in one of those swings
i think that us humans are making those swings wider
not for the best either

the amount of ice thats melting all over the earth
that water has to go somewhere and cause changes
i think we are in one of those changing times now

its predicted looking at sea level rising maps for this area that where we live will be safe since we are up an steady incline from the beach to the mountains
many things along the beach will be gone and eroded away especially some of our most favorite places to walk and hike

this morning i ran across this interactive map from the university of maryland
you type in your city or one thats listed thats close by
up will come what they predict the weather in that city will be like in 2080 if we dont change anything we are doing like polluting the air and the water and removing trees and burning things in the air
eg the crop burning in central america and south america is having an effect since all that smoke gets in the air and all those trees and plants are burned up
add that to all the stuff that gets dumped into the air

here is the link to the interactive map

so i looked at 3 cities where we have lived
little rock
santa barbara

little rock weather will be like the weather now in southern louisiana near new orleans in a town called hammon la
the summer will be 0.2 degrees f warmer and about 70% wetter
oh my how miserable that heat will be in arkansas with that much humidity

austin weather will be like the weather now in nuevo laredo mexico
the summer will be 6.2 degrees warmer and 34% drier
oh its already hot enough there in the summer
im sure things will really be brown around austin
this means more fires im sure
a few years ago during the drought when the weather was like this
when the winds came the austin area was burning all around it
like in california

santa barbara winter weather will be like it is in glendale california
the winter temps will be about 6 degrees warmer and about 25% drier
we had that when we first moved here and what happened were fires all around us
followed by mud and debris flows out of the mountains when it rained causing several deaths and mass destruction along its path

los angeles weather will be like las palmas mexico in the southern tip of baja california
it will be warmer and wetter

so it seems looking at this predictive interactive map that almost no matter what city you type in nothing better shows up

we have to do something to change as much of this as we can

is going to happen but maybe we can slow it down
