The Ground Hog Got It Wrong

Six more weeks of winter. That's what the ground hog predicted a few weeks back. If this is winter weather, I'll take it all day long! With temperatures at near record high levels this week, it's feeling like an early Spring. Will it last? Who knows. We may ride these unseasonable temps all the way into April. Odds are however, that Mother Nature has a few more curve balls to throw our way before Spring officially begins. There are certainly those who would point to global warming as the root cause of these weather patterns. It's certainly possible that it plays a role. While enjoying this weather, I can't help but wonder what the summer months might be like this year. Even for the pros, however, predicting weather months in advance is a bit of a guessing game. Simply because it's unseasonably warm now does not mean this summer will be that much hotter than previous years. However, when looking back to years past in order to predict future weather patterns, the evidence points to a planet growing ever warmer. On a macro level, small changes in temperature can have wide ranging impacts across the globe. Here in Southeastern, North Carolina, we are enjoying an early taste of Spring. There is a general consensus that human activity plays a role in global warming. If that's the case, then what better way to enjoy this weather than by bike, foot, or paddle. The only impact will be on the person initiating the activity. And that should be a net positive gain, both for them, and the environment.
