More than half a dozen independent enquiries said otherwise, and those still stupid enough to repeat the same allegations publicly are facing libel actions now.

I wonder how muddleman's insurance stocks are doing right now after all those devastating storms in the US which also resulted in multiple fatalities.

And for the dude pushing his chair back on the beach, well i hear Florida beaches are running out of sand, and replacing it with crushed glass.
But still the ignorant hold onto their belief that man is doing nothing to effect the climate.

Another beautiful day around the country, especially here out west.

Some tornado bad boys around. My grandpa said it reminded him of the devastating tornados of 1974.

Get the link in your post.

P.S. Topix deleted my correction after the broken post. Yes, blame Topix twice for the same post. One for the break, two for the deletion of my corrected post.
