The sky is falling.

Over the last 10 years, the height of clouds has been shrinking, according to new research. The time frame is short, but if future observations show that clouds are truly getting lower, it could have an important effect on global climate change. Clouds that are lower in the atmosphere would allow Earth to cool more efficiently, potentially offsetting some of the warming caused by greenhouse gases.

    indeed !!! well i have Not bought into the idea of Global Warming since i first heard the term. these days Everyone wants to be an expert including meteorologists. i guess the above mentioned term is passe and has morphed or digressed into Climate Change. these are All and , in the least, terms that describe current trends to describe natural cycles that , not only ours, but many planets experience. when mainstream news reports topics they, somewhat take data out of overall context. hi Robert. and a wonderful website Full of insight.
