two things mitigating global warming

with more people spending more and more time in the virtual world, they are doing less damage to the real one.

the warmer it gets, the milder the fall, the later the onset of winter, the less fuel oil and gas is needed for heating.

it’s definitely getting warmer all the time. But how much is due to the overdue ending of the postglacial warming period, and to 104 astronomical phenomena scientists at the Russian Academy of Science were telling me about, and how much to our co2 emissions ? They’re probably working together, synergestically, enhancing each other. But nobody really knows. The human component has to be significant though, but I think it will prove to be a lot more complicated.
