Bert, not mondo with a cane; able with a cane.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 13, 2018 at 9:04pm

Knowing you, I'd assume it was a Mondo Cane.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on December 13, 2018 at 8:57pm

Yeah, Bert. I bought a cane and am practicing waving it.

Here's an explanation of ice age timing, Donald. While smoke from wildfires can cause local cooling, just like aerosols from coal plants and pollution, that effect isn't large enough in extent or time to initiate an ice age. There was one period that your observation does bring to mind. 360 Million years ago oxygen levels got quite high, and global wildfires ended it, leaving a distinct charcoal layer in sediments.

Or, maybe something else is developing.  According to FOX news, there have been 69 massive earthquakes around the Pacific Rim in the last 48 hours.  There was one off the coast of Oregon this morning.
