You want to drink it before the ice melts.

I saw this big X in the sky yesterday and thought, maybe it's a target for an asteroid or an alien cannon.  Either way, we deserve it.

+3.1415 x 1037 to you, Zazzie.  I had a similar sentence fully formed before I clicked into the thread.

150F here we come ... likely this week in Arizona.

Real evidence that the global warming plague is brought upon us by the climate sceintists, just like the covid-19 pandemic was brought about by the commie athiests in Whunan laboratory.

The more you take the temperature the more temperature you have. That's basic thermodynamics 101 right there.

There is going to be some real nice real estate in northern Canada and Russia.

Alaska is going to be a paradise.

If you're in Mobile, Houston, LA, DC, Denver, and all points lateral?
Not so much.

The migration of a couple billion people is going to also be rather interesting to survive.

Most of Alaska will be a perennially burning plauge swamp with mosquitoes the size of cats.

Might be nice up in the mountains, after the massive forest fires that is.

True only of thermodynamic temperature. For any other temperature, it depends. Maybe you have more, maybe less.

Melt enough ice and the gun fires:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clath​r​ate_gun_hypothesis

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas in the short term but dissipates much faster than CO2.

But release a bunch from melting ice? Under a Siberian shelf? or the continental slope? then we'd have a huge spike in heating which would beget more melting and more methane, and so on.

Before the methane has time to decompose we're experiencing a huge heating effect.

Some scientist hypothesize this happening without additional human contribution of CO2 is what accounts for the sudden steep periods of warming in the past.

But couple this with all the CO2 we already put in the air and we can experience a rapid warming event the likes of which we've never seen before.

When people Comment that humans couldn't possibly affect climate I explain it like this: Imagine a car parked on a hill. A 6 year old climbs in and takes the car out of park. It rolls down the hill and crashes into a light post, knocking it over. The parents of the child claim that they shouldn't have to pay for the damage because it's impossible for a 6 year old to knock over a light post. The methane is that hill. Allowing CO2 to rise is taking the system out of park (equilibrium).

That's why you use polished stone or glass and put it in the freezer. You don't have to drink it so fast.

And we've already been experiencing rapid warming events the likes of which we've never seen before, for decades and decades. The next new normal should be a real blast.

I don't know...

The ice maker never gets tired those stone/glass things come in what, sets of 4?  So you start with 4 of those in the freezer, take one down, sip it around and then it's warm.  Put it back in the freezer and take another out, don't rinse but do repeat.  Then go back to the freezer and make a cold splash and drunk it down.  But wait you've got to put it and the one from before back in the freezer but you've got to find the second one first but on the way you see the freezer so you get another cold one out and fill in down.

By the time your face has cycled from numb to flushed, you've misplaced 2 whisky glasses, broken one and you ain't gonna let go of the last one... so ice it is.  The alternative is drinking straight from the bottle which, now that I think about it, isn't so bad is exactly why I stopped drinking.

Even when I was drinking a handle of vodak a day on the way to intensive care and rehab, I still never did two things:

a) Buy from the bottom shelf, and
ii) Drink straight from the bottle.

And I still kept a bottle of Auchentoshen or Oban on hand for guests.

Unfortunately people don't claim to disbelieve climate science because they're uninformed or haven't worked out the logic.

Your example is good and clever but it will never budge the people we need to act differently.

Climate science denialism is a matter of politics and identity now. It doesn't matter if it's as true a knife blade crossing your throat. It's *WHO* they are now. Inextricably linked.

There have long been theories that some of the craziness in the Bermuda Triangle is related to methane release. There are other areas around the world with simiular craziness and they all happen to have large amounts of solid methane sitting very close to the triple point.  Half a degree warmer and the solid ice turns into gas and goes up and the shock wave causes nearby ones to do the same.  A hand sized bit of methane ice at 6000 ft down makes a bubble at the surface large enough for a ship to fall into.  Since methane mining needs a big funnel and a way to pump surface water down to the bottom, I wonder why more people haven't tried it.  This takes 1950 garage mechanic level technology to pull of a proof of concept.

My guess is that aliens have been here, held a meeting, and decided 'what a farking mess, let's check again in 2000 years'

All the nasty weather starts or hits Houston.

Alsaka is a paradise, except there are a million bird-sized mosquitoes per capita. And the trees will all die once it stops freezing.
