So, anyone study anything interesting? I personally kind of enjoy the Milankovitch Cycles.

I really wish I knew enough about this event to comment anything useful, but I've only been studying for two days.

As there seems to be more emphasis on the greenhouse gas/global warning aspects of meteorology, are there any good resources for these topics? These can be textbooks or websites. Thanks!

Well, weather.com may or may not have some helpful stuff.
You can also try the soinc.org page, as there are a lot of helpful links there.

Is mie scattering the same as aerosol scattering, or no?

Under the letter D, it includes the effects of longitude on climate. How does that work? I mean, it seems like it has no effect.

Yeah, longitude itself doesn't really affect climate, except possibly if referring to the proximity of a large body of water or other large landform.

Even though it's not on the rules sheet this year, can anyone provide a good link to a list of ice ages and phases of the past climate?

Let's use the sea ice albedo feedback loop as an example. A: Sea Ice, B: Earth's Albedo, C: Temperature. A to B If Sea Ice growing makes the Albedo greater then arrow from A to B would be rated as a PLUS. B to C If Albedo increase, we know that would actual decrease temp so the arrow from B to C would be rated a MINUS, and then finally C to A. if surface temp increase, will Sea Ice increase? NO, so the arrow from C to A would be rated a MINUS. The net of the 3 would probably be rated as an overall PLUS. I believe that this would be the proper approach. Hope that helps.

Why is it so hard to find information in regards to El Nino events outside of the So. Pacific? It's not like the Trade Winds are only reversing in the Pacific. Anyone have any thoughts or good links, please reply. Thanks

This website seems to have detailed information on the effects of el nino: http://www.knmi.nl/research/global_climate/enso/effects/. El nino is the warming of the eastern Pacific ocean, caused by the weakening of trade winds, but this has an effect on the climate globally.
