I would like to see the UN building completed frozen into a block of ice. The devil worshipping pedophiles and gloBULL warming liars from the UN could be put on display. Each UN member frozen in a square bock of ice could be put on display in the town square.

Ask yourself:

"Self, why is the weather so crazy?
"Could it have anything to do with the sudden onset of super-hot Summers?
"Is there any realtionship in heating water to more water vapor?
Self?"

Honestly bill,I do not know..I do know what I see feel .I do listen to both sides of this monumental debate..both sound correct ,and it adds to my confusion...as I might add to many people...Incremental change over eons never will seem threatning today.future generations will have to cope with their problems...Of course I worry about all my Kids,and their kids,and their kids....along with the pressing issues of the day,the course of our country today,,these are more immediate and have direct effects now!..not some future time...Short sighted?,maybe,But whats immediate scares me much more...hope you understand.Popular causes are fine,but reality of the day trumps all.

YAA! nice here now here,But we know a HURRICANE can spoil yer whole life....And Thats Life,..and no one can change it..IT IS WRITTEN! sounds still OK to me!..Stay Warm,and COOL!....

I'm sorry, the groundhog is alive and well. I misunderstood.

Part of the reason was tha I had Santa claus on the other line (he is a very loud talker on the phone,)(Mr_Bill does assist Santa from time to time.) We were making fun of the Easter Bunny, because he is so far behind schedule with all the snow.

We both think that Phil the groundhog does a great job, and Santa is happy to see the Winter end (Yes, he likes a warm vacation too.)

Her is the straight dope:

There is real climate change, real global warming. As I said, look out the window, every day, every year.
Natural global change (cycles) traditionally takes 10's of thousands of years.
The changes now seem to be directly related (using mathematical
graphing) to increases in CO2.

We (mankind) have caused a lot of that CO2 to be released, especially ssince we began to refine and burn petroleum.

2+2 =?
