San Antonio's fountains are shut down; there's a water shortage.

My sister can only water her lawn once a week, by city ordnance.

Driving back yesterday, 4 out of 5 creeks along the way were dry. Lakes and ponds were about 30-50% low.

It's worse than it's been in years.

Is Obama holding a Global Warming emergency meeting tonight? Nope, that's not his priority. This is:

Pooled Press
5:25 PM
The President hosts a reception to observe LGBT Pride Month
East Room

Warmies! Get to the back of the conga line.

Really? So it was worse a few years or a decade ago?

What you deniers seem to have a monumental fail in terms of space and concept. At the time of the Columbus it took a few centuries for the world's population to expand 200 million now it only takes 3 years. Yet despite this, you wont accept that man is now influencing all aspects of a planet which is finite. The planet can't grow with the economy, but under your magic "market" fix all philosophy it does. What you believe in is no different than those early pagan religions of sun or moon God's. Man's progress can only solve the problems progress creates by acknowledging them, when they are ignored then history shows entire empires crumble without exception. For you to believe that the pie can just keep getting bigger in a finite world is an insane concept.

that's a long and incoherent rant in response to a post about the gout.

we get it....the world is finite....and you think man's influences are mostly negative. sit down and and shut up. some of us will figure out the challenges and keep moving forward while you sit there and bytch. your defeatist attitude and pseudoscience doesn't help the problem or address the REAL issues.

peace!

It sound like you would like to US to limit its population growth including immigration. Is that right?

What's a nice number for you? What population would you like in the 50 states combined?

Every liberal in these days seem to have taken on themselves to educate everyone else on "climate science". And you all spit the same garbage hypothesis that have no substance to them. Then the IPCC have also had to correct some lies they sent out.

Your haughty pontification is exactly the way your ilk go about this. Everyone else are idiots. There isn't a single non-liberal with IQ above 80, still according to liberals. Then, the rest of non-liberals are evil, rich or racists. You libs are becoming so disgusting in your persuasion and you never seem to want to leave others alone. The arrogance of you guys knowing "the truth" while everyone else are either dumb, bigots or rich is starting to make me furious. You guys confuse bullet points with facts, correlate instant happenings with global warming and sneer at anyone who dares question you all and mighty Ayatollahs.

"History shows empires crumble"... Where? In what context? And what did "global warming" have to do,with this? Nope, history is not another tool to twist and pervert for you liars.

I didn't label you, but you painted your own picture. In the worlds top ten rich list over 60% of them are liberals and the other 40% got rich by digging holes in the ground. So what does that say about dumb liberals who always have their hand out. All the smartest people in history making the big discoveries were liberals including Einstein so again, you have been fooled by your masters. But you know why that is, because a liberal never accepts the status quo as the be all and end all, your kind bend over backwards to defend it. That's what conservatism is, no change no matter what. Climate is just another one of those concepts on your list.
