Climate Change Update

Looks like global warming isn't happening this week:

I have a friend who moved here recently. The last couple of late Junes have been unusually dry and warm. I've had to explain that this sort of weather is more normal.

So, clearly climate change isn't happening this month.

Yes, this bad joke will continue until our nation's pundits get a clue about what "climate" means. What's hard to imagine is that in the nation's capital, where presumably people would be somewhat more attuned to what's going on in the rest of the country than normal, people actually seem to be just as provincial in their outlook as the most isolated villages in Appalachia.

And speaking from Appalachia,

thanks for the plug!

Always glad to help out. If things continue the way they are in the Gulf, Appalachia will become a tourist destination pretty soon.
