Average Change

When ignoramuses hear about 5.0°C (9.0°F) of global warming they say Big hairy deal. My back yard swings through that much in a single day. The don’t seem to understand the difference between one spot on the earth changing for a few hours and the average for every spot on the globe changing for an entire year. During the ice age, Canada was only 5.0°C (9.0°F) cooler than it is now. Ignoramuses, especially the ignoramuses on FOX news, imagine they understand all this much better than the experts who have made a life study of it. I wonder if they feel the same way about their heart surgeons, the engineers who build spacecraft, their lawyers or particle physicists. Everyone is an expert on local weather which they arrogantly confuse with understanding global climate.
