Then why don't you post facts about THAT rather than making such un-scientific, innacurate "observations" about temperature?????

The science behind the term du jour (can't remember what it is as of today) is still lacking, and Crappin' Traitor will only hurt the economy and line corporate pockets. But, if it's a plan sprung by their hometown team, team players will always root for it no matter what.

Perhaps you were asleep last fall when President Obama won election promising to address climate change.

Well if he only promised it then we probably shouldnt worry about it anyways. Not like he does anything else he says.

LOL the Democrats are the only party that takes care of the poor, and the environment, and energy security, and health care.

BTW being called a "liberal elitist" doesn't bother me. I'm proud to be a Liberal and I take some satisfaction in what I've been able to achieve in my life. Part of that provides me the ability to purchase material comforts that may be beyond your means and that obviously provokes a jealous response on your part.

Anonymous posting of material possessions proves the exact opposite. Why do you hate people who have more than you?

Facts usually refer to things that have already happened. Until what you described passes, it's not a FACT as you indicate.

Phoenix had its hottest July this year with the typical day being 109/87. We've had about 10 days with morning lows as high as 95 this summer and we'll be 114 today, a new record. Chicago's summer is on track to be the cloudiest which has kept the temperatures from getting particularly warm.

Man's activities DO impact climate and the unpredictable change is a real problem. Up? Down? Clouds? Rain? Whatever happens won't be expected and poses a significant problem for food production and sustainability.

Why do conservatives hate people that are smarter than them? I mean, their use of the word "elitist" does imply such, does it not?
