    God, you are fucking stupid, Pattycake. That means with two La Nina's back to back, all it could manage is the 18th coldest on record.

    I wouldn't contest that it's getting warmer; I would contest what should be done about it though.

    Nothing is going to be done about it, until a string of disasters forces extreme action. And at that point, we are most likely just along for the ride, and what we do will have little to no effect.

    Disasters like flooding in Australia and 15 feet of snow in Romania?
