    CLIMATE CHANGE, and it is either happening, or the NWS is UNDER funded. Hour after hour the forecast has been off today, the line of storms is just now hitting NE Florida, Escambia county has declared a state of emergency, and the high was 80 here. NOT June weather where I live.

    "Ever recorded" you say? Ice core samples show weather changes that would knock your socks off. Does the global warming left think the world was created a hundred and fifty years ago?

    So how easy should it be to get a 3 degree temperature increase by adding 50ppm of CO2 to a controlled lab experiment?

    So it is natural, why exacerbate the situation?

    I don't know but I would take 48 degrees, to get rid of thunderstorms right now, I am terrified of big storms.

    And we had 85 degree days in February this year, but without the summer bombs; I hate them, though I would not leave Florida because of them. The lakes & ponds are low, with Beryl, we have had at least 7-8 inches of rain in the two weeks days.
