Check this out:fire wrote:for earths climate to change so radically that both highs are higher and lows are lower requires an energy input change.
end of fucking story dumbshits.
Cold is exposure to space. Heat is energy input coming from the sun, obviously that's a point source input and so the actual impact on this little rock we happen to be riding on varies.
Can I assume you have a grasp on thermodynamics to the point at which you understand heat sinking and transfer of energy?
The big change is that our insulation is eroding, this makes flash point energy incursion (sun's shining, it's summer yo) a more direct course to the surface of the planet. The exosphere is not reflecting/slowing/diffusing the energy so it sinks at the surface, but being the result of a tighter beam (than a wider more averaged distribution) the surface heat storage is localized (in a sun versus shaded manner) and is prone to release the heat in a faster manner.
Easy come, easy go; right?
This creates an increase in thermal turbulence. Instead of a diffused glow we've got the product of a less impeded energy flow that *will not* be retained by the surface, because the earth's crust pretty much sucks as a heat sink.
So now we've got these free radical transfers of solar energy at the surface of the earth, what's going to be the most affected by this? Why, the pliable substance that has collected at planet surface we call air.
Air's going to get wild and move more aggressively in paths that are largely directed by the thermal turbulence (high and low pressure zones) that is also being amplified by these periodic passes of raw solar energy that is no longer being slowed as much as it once was.
So it can be thought as if this air is carrying a charge and that charge is heat. It has more to do with thermal expansion/contraction creating zones of least resistance (this is where the air goes).
I've hung out with you fire, I'm pretty sure you've followed me to the point. You're a smart guy. ..
Now - when we have a cold dome of higher pressure fluid, it will naturally deflect (and be shaped by) the faster and inherently "lighter" flows of higher energy fluids. Yeah?
So - in the old system, the poles had numerous subsystems that encouraged the thermal retention (in this case, insulation for that cold kiss of space) at the least directly affected collection points of solar energy.
ONCE WE HEAT THOSE POINTS, from direct exposure to another heated mass, in this case the ocean; THAT THERMAL SHIELD FAILS.
I placed capitalization there not because I am yelling, but because that is a sentence that needs to be digested as a unit and I had introduced side chatter.
So what we have here is loosening the binds on the unheated or "cold" storage of thermal energy. If the flow of air becomes more pronounced through these areas you are sure as shit going to see the sinking of heat (carried by the air stream that was not there before) reaching a thermal equilibrium with the cold storage regions (it's bad form to think of them as this, but it helps my analogy) and therefore colder than normal temperatures are liberated into a moving stream of air that has to go somewhere because the warm regions are still expanding the air mass and pushing from behind.
So, through a warming we also see an increase in cold temperatures, but it's not really cold - it's a lack of warmth, and it is an active process that is undoing the cold thermal mass that has made this planet habitable.
Did that make any sense, or would you prefer to just blame dark dimension aliens or some other non-person nonsense that would allow you the comfort of feeling that you are powerless to either cause or imped this process?
