I took a break from almost all things Internet, and have run off to a friend's wedding in the Swiss Alps. Actually we are a few miles on the Italian side of the border, and will be here another week or so. I wanted to share it, but also saw a few other things I might share if I get time.
Another thing for us to worry about.
why worry about Climate change when Polar change is a bigger deal?
although...the earth’s magnetic field is always changing, both day-to-day and over long periods of time. The last large-scale change happened over 700,000 years ago! Because this was so long ago, nothing is known about how quickly it happened, and whether the field became very weak during the change. Life on earth continued, and the geological record of life does not show any disturbances during that or the many other changes.
