    I'm pretty sure I didn't win that big lottery a couple weeks ago because of global warming. And that really sucks.

    You'd think the great warming would have created a lot of "hot" tickets.

    Today in the Upper Mohave the low temparature was 33 degrees.

    In July the high will be around 110.

    Pretty much normal.

    It's cool in the winter and One Hundred and Stupid in the summer. Pretty much like it's always been.

    Even though I know you're being sarcastic and I'm presuming you don't fall for this global warming hype, I would really like some global warming alarmist kook to explain this one to me ...

    "We have a superstorm earlier

    Probably because of Global Warming"

    Anyone who thinks Superstorm Sandy had squat to do with global warming is a loon and simply can't be taken seriously.

    Superstorm Sandy was a result of several different given factors all coming together at just the right time, to produce the storm of which transpired. It had to do with a cold front from the west, coming together with a hurricane in the Atlantic, during high tide, during a full moon, which set the stage for Superstorm Sandy to be as destructive as it was. Global warming did not miraculously cause the cold front to come together with the hurricane, global warming did not miraculously cause all these factors to come together at high tide and, global warming did not cause all of these factors to conveniently culminate during a full moon. Had any of these factors not been present during Superstorm Sandy, it may not have been such a big deal, especially if the cold front hadn't met with the hurricane (or more appropriately tropical storm). Hurricane Sandy, when it made landfall, was pretty much a wimpy hurricane and had it not been for the cold front, it would have just been a normal tropical storm they likely see quite often in that area.
