May 26, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

There will be more itching, sneezing, swelling and gasping for breath as Pennsylvania's climate shifts and residents are exposed to more poison ivy, stinging insects, pollen allergies and lyme-disease-bearing ticks, and experience increased asthma, respiratory disease and heat-related deaths.

Intelligent people call it "summertime". Happens every year around Memorial Day. Next thing those terrible concrete pits will be filled with water and people will be put in severe danger as they wade in water to cool off.

Not to worry, the government will protect you by allowing you to stand under a fine spray mist. Those concrete holes are just too dangerous for Progressive Democrats. It takes a village, but then, what does it matter.

Pool and politics, anything else?

Completed analyses show that more than 90 percent of the warming that has happened on Earth over the past 50 years has occurred in the ocean. Though the atmosphere has been spared from the full extent of global warming for now, heat already stored in the ocean will eventually be released, committing Earth to additional warming in the future.

One course of action would be to completely discredit western medicine and the antibiotics they use to poison people and the planet and treat Lyme disease with herbs. This will cause a market demand for herbs and they will have to regrow some of the rain forest.

About the rain forests.. they are prolific to regrowth. So if you stop logging, development, you get the recovery soon.

As to the medicine comment.. do you live in CO, LOL?

OR - we could wait for Obama to read it in the paper and be outraged? That seem to fix everything else.

Had a dead branch fall in my yard last week. I'll bet global warming had something to do with that.

It's all working together, antibiotics in the environment, genetic engineering, global warming. It will result in the sixth mass extinction.

Old liThe upcoming EPA rules have proven to be extremely controversial, and despite the fact that the rules have not been released yet, several members of Congress and political groups have already come out against them namely those who deny the scientific evidence for climate change.

Ok, Just when, in all of history, did the climate not change?

20 years ago it was the start of the new ice age, now we're all gonna' cook, or drown, or something. But, with enough money we can get it fixed. Figures do not lie, but liars figure. But then, what does it matter.

Climate Change is for the anxiety-ridden only.
