For Lincoln Nebraska snow depth, not temperature.

Show me a similar chart that shows how one 30 year period compares to another 30 year period and you will have a graphic representation of climate change. Anything which only shows a single months data is weather.

The money collected via this fee would be distributed to the public as a monthly “dividend” or “green check.” Distributing all of the revenue equitably to households will ensure that families can afford the energy they need during the transition to a clean energy future, and it should help win public support for a rising carbon fee.

There is no government revenue and no corporate profit.

British Columbia has such system.
I havn't jumped in before but if you think the government is not going to make money of of this or that corporations aren't your head is in the sand. if someone isn't making money then it wouldn't be done!

Nope my self assessment skills are spot on. Remember the truth is that I really don't give a rats donkey about what will happen in 50 years. My son is in Valhalla waiting for me when I get there. But until then Im going sailing.

One month over a long term shows the climate for that month. Weather by definition is short term.

BTW - The Koppen and Trewartha climate classification systems account for variation throughout the year.

Climate isn't just temperature. My snow graph has as much relevance as your temperature graph.

Actually reef IMO the snow graph is more important to the real world than any temperature. The amount of snowfall relates to the amount of moisture that is available for growing crops and watering animals.

I know but I thought we were comparing apples to apples.

Climate involves temperature, precipitation, winds, BP, humidity, etc as well as variations throughout the year over an interval of 30 years.

That would be chunks of apples to other chunks of apples. Like dissecting an apple pie.

Who decided on the arbitrary 30 years? Why not 75 years? Or why not 300 years?
