I figured out that the biggest mistake the climate change folks made in making their argument is letting their argument get labeled "Global warming". While this is of course technically a true label for the problem it has allowed the truly moronic among us to deny it's existence. The problem is people don't believe the universe exists outside of their little corner of it. Especially conservatives who think we should all speak English because Jesus did himself. So Nebraska has had the coolest July anybody can remember. It's 75 degrees today and that has been give or take 5-8 degrees about where it has been all month. The month ends tomorrow and for the month we will have had 1 day over 90... Unheard of.
The flip side of this is the Pacific Northwest where it's been 600 degrees and the poor people who live their are dying. So take Omaha and Portland. It's 75 in one and 106 in the other and while neither temperature is a unheard of for those two cities the thing is the 75 should be Portland and the 106 Omaha. Climate change is real folks.
Anyway Open thread Thursday:)
