    The debate of climate change
    Jan 06, 2014

    The debate of climate change, not long ago termed Global Warming, rages on. We’ve heard arguments from both sides and it’s safe to say that the yelling and screaming will go on for some time.


    If you’re a fan of winter, you might find it interesting that a similar debate raged in the 1970’s, except this was about Global Cooling.


    Never heard of it before? Popular Technology.net writes “During the 1970s the media promoted global cooling alarmism with dire threats of a new ice age. Extreme weather events were hyped as signs of the coming apocalypse and man-made pollution was blamed as the cause.”


    The accompanying video from 1978 features none other than Leonard Nimoy, better known as Spock.


    Regardless of which side you take, cooling or warming, it most likely can be agreed that the climate is all about change and the arguments may never end.

      I have begun using my GPS to mark all of the trails in Otis (Knox Trail Snow Riders trails), and after reading this article, I will begin marking gas, intersections, clubhouse, etc. Has anyone else out there begun doing the same either in Otis or some other part of Mass? I think I will mark the entrances to private trails as well as an overlay so that if you come up on an unmarked intersection you will be able to determine which is the marked trail and which is private.
