Global Defrosting

Can someone tell me what is the correct average mean temperature for Earth? Come on, anyone? I mean, if EVERYONE believes that the Earth is getting warmer, then they should know if that is a good thing or not. Right? Just because the Earth is getting warmer in and of itself doesn't mean anything good or bad. No?

If the average mean temperature of Earth should be 4 degrees higher than it is now, then the warming is a good thing and we should help accelerate it! If it is 4 degrees lower than it is now, then we need to kill off about 4 billion people to turn the tide...anything else would be throwing ice cubes at a bonfire.

I would like to offer a different way of thinking about the rising temperature, from on now, I am going to call it global defrosting

ALERT - Vehicle Repossession in Wisconsin

A major change in Wisconsin law now allows auto loan lenders to repossess a vehicle 15 days after a notice of default has been sent (there is some question about it being 15 days from receipt of the notice but that has not been tested).

If you are someone that does not open bills until you can pay them, you might have a notice stating your are in default. You could walk out your door and find your vehicle gone with little recourse.

This is called self-help repossession and is VERY different from the previous requirement to obtain a judicial judgment.
