recent ice storm damaged 1000 + electric poles


climate change removes money from everyone in the world's pocket every day

more and more there is less and less



east of Denver the snow drifts were 10' + high

next week it will probably get warmer and everything will melt and cause flooding.

1. We had a thunderstorm yesterday in central Illinois.
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 11:44 AM by Beelzebud
First we get an ice storm in December (they usually happen in the spring, not winter), cutting our power for 6 days.

Then last night we had a full-blown thunderstorm.

Anyone who denies the weather is changing, is simply lying to themselves at this point.

2. ...
While I appreciate you meant that climate change is growing more intensive as most argue...

...That weather, somehow, at some point, was not changing, strikes me as a bit odd...

6. That was my reaction too, but I'm too tired to even ask.

7. A recent Kos diary cited the concept of 'the constants of nature'.
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 01:25 PM by Kagemusha
Nature has a range of normality but, the concept of nature being constant is really warped, IMHO, speaking as someone with an interest in nature. If we humans think nature is supposed to be a constant, unchanging entity, that's just us being collectively stupid.

Edit: Apologies if saying such a thing actually *offends* anyone. I hardly think nature *not* being a monolithic stone justifies doing damage to it.

3. It will be MUD SEASON here in New Mexico
and people who live outside the cities will be driving cars with adobe exteriors.

Mud here dries into a cement like substance, which is why houses are still being built from it.

I hate snow. I left Boston to escape snowstorms like this.

4. Christmas Eve I had to listen to some right wingers I hardly know
spout that the recent snow dump is evidence that global warming is not real. :wow:
