Global warming?

Global warming seems to be effecting many of the images seen in today's media. It's been so long since it's been this cold for this many days, that many of the shots that are showing up in print and on the web aren't balanced correctly.

Remember to think in terms of the workflow. Check your image's overall colour and light for evidence of a colour cast or haze.

Wait, I thought all that CO2 from my gas guzz'ling American people mover was supposed to be making the planet hotter? Folks in the north east and upper mid-west are freezing. I'd better keep driving. Hopefully, after a while ... I can thaw the planet out.

I don't want to get political here, but one of the effects of global warming is that some parts of the world will get colder. This has to do with, among other things, the changing of important currents.

Nice blog! I like it a lot.

Neither do I. One of the hallmarks of proper science is PROOF. Forensic science = a reliable and repeatable pattern of activity enabled by a set of tools and techniques that can be documented and learned. When there is consensus, there is no science. A must equal A.
The problems with the global warming theories is that they fail to account for, or completely discount, the natural weather patterns, precipitation, and the natural cycles of the sun.
To me, from a pure science standpoint, the theories lack repeatability. Thus A does not equal A, and there is no science ... only politics.
Thanks for the comments.
