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.
All those border crossers are drinking all the water. What'd you expect?

Water shortages leading right back to corn and ethanol
The central plains have seen some relief this spring with bands of heavy rains moving through, but the 2014 season has been the exception rather than the norm. The 2012 – 2013 drought season saw more and more people having trouble accessing potable ground water, or even sufficient moisture for agriculture. It’s long been known that this problem is exacerbated by expanding corn production, driven by a need to feed the government mandated ethanol market. But a recent study from an unusual source sheds some new light on this situation.
The source for this study actually is the interesting part, as it comes from Ceres, a group self-described as “a non-profit organization advocating for sustainability leadership.” Among their key issues, they list climate change and the need to move away from fossil based fuels. In other words, this isn’t exactly a right wing think tank. But now they’ve released a lengthy study on the subject of aggressive corn production to meet ethanol demands and the effect it is having on water supplies.

Fracking is worse.

Ethanol should be made from plant wastes.

Scientific method is based on evidence. You got caught via the evidence.

IOW, you don't know it. FIRED!

Sadly, but not surprisingly, you are incorrect. I shall hold your hand, k?

The scientific method is the process used to understand phenomena through developing a hypothesis, experimentation, and learning, so that we are able to predict the phenomena again. This means the phenomena is understood and established as fact only after the theory is proven and verified after repeatable experiments with the same results.

Therefore, Global Warming, Climate Change, or what ever other clever term you put on it has not and can not be proven through the scientific method. Computer models have been found faulty because it is fed input by biased humans. You climate clowns and grant seekers need to bone up on real science and stop manipulating data. Data manipulation is highly frowned upon when using the scientific method. If you loved science you would know this.

The laws of physics are the LAWS of physics because it has been proven through repetition to be true. These same laws cannot be violated just so you can scare governments for more grant money.

It is you who has no understanding of the scientific method. You denier idiots do not know that science does not prove things. Theories are not proven and are not facts. However they must be disprovable and if they ever are disproved they are not viable and are abandoned.
No one has disproved the theory of agw.

In September of 2007, I was at Walmart using the pay phone. I then noticed his piece of paper folded up. I got it, unfolded it. Guess what it said, "D**n the Holy Spirit God!!!". You fill in the ** with am!. That's bad ain't it?.

The scientific method traditionally has required experimental observation and replication. The fact that macroevolution (as distinct from microevolution) has never been observed would seem to exclude it from the domain of true science.

It was hot that I saw a squirrel blowing on his nuts today.

And the only noticeable breeze was when grandma let out a fart.
