A personal training client and I were chatting about the weather last week. Full disclosure -- we were mostly groaning about being tired of winter and ready for spring. In the course of our discussion, we talked a bit about climate change. She, being elderly, knows a few old timers who carp about the "global warming myth" on the coldest of winter days. I told her how researching the Ice Age has helped me come to understand the dynamic nature of climate. The earth gets warmer for a time and then it cools. It has happened numerous times and will likely continue to do so. Understanding this helps me to accept the weather changes we are seeing (and are projected to see increasingly over the next forty years). I'll admit though, that it still doesn't help much on those last few February days. Come on, spring!
