Grey Skies, Nothing But Grey Skies..

My bad, let me clarify my statement: the Earth does not remotely resemble an isolated system, not in anyone's wildest imaginings, not if one has spent all afternoon looking at Salvador Dalis in a centrifuge while tripping on acid, not even a little bit. It continually exchanges large chunks of energy with the rest of the universe. The Second Law does not apply to a system consisting of the Earth alone, not even if you put a ribbon round the 'haggis' and call it tJemima.

Your straw dog is nipping at your heals. Lol


I never said the Earth's climate was an "isolated system,"


Matter of fact I posted that there is really no such thing as "isolated system"  in nature, - WIKI


That's why those folks who demand $trillions to control the climate to a couple of degrees far out into the future have a REALLY BAD IDEA, Lol


Everything in the universe, is subject to gravity, dark energy, cosmic and an assortment of other radiation. Even empty space, a virtual vacuum, is a very busy place, we have learned.


But to get back on point, lets say the Earth and its climate are discrete, or even unique systems.


The  Earth's climate is  a function of gravity, atmospheric air pressure, energy sources such as the  the Sun, and to a lesser extent, Internal heat generated by radioactive decay, and the left over heat in its core from its formation , which together generates plate tectonics, earthquakes and volcanoes.


The Earth actually does a great job of providing a livable climate. which allows life to thrive above the Arctic Circle, in the driest deserts, and in the steaming equatorial jungles.

Wish the grey skies would come back.

Friday is the predicted day for it to break and rain.

And inevitably....heavy rain warnings for the weekend.
