Java & Internet Glossary
Throughout history man keeps making the same error over and over, presuming that
what is known is all there is and presuming that which is closest is unique in the
universe. I think by now the default presumption should be there is still more to
discover until proven otherwise, and the way things are here is likely the way they are
elsewhere unless proven otherwise. There is likely nothing unique of consequence about
us and our location.

If the average temperature of the earth heats up 6.0°C (10.8°F)
, the effect is much bigger than it sounds. 70.8% of the
earth is covered by ocean. The air over the ocean will not heat up much, meaning the
air over the continents will have to heat up much more than 6.0°C (10.8°F)
to create that average. The heating is uneven over the latitudes. The poles and the
equatorial regions will heat up much more than the average. Further, the peak
temperatures will rise much more than the average temperatures. And to top it off, just
a bit of extra heat gives hurricanes massively extra punch.
