One of the points that the alarmists allways like to trot out is how the southwest US is drying up do to GW. Seems that that isn't so. Scientists using WBAN (Weather Bureau-Army-Navy) stations (because of their long term and 99% complete record) found that only 4 of 22 stations had a decrease in rainfall. The others had either remained constant or in 8 cases statistically significant INCREASES in rainfall. Yet another alarmist claim proven false. Oh and old fraud you allways accuse me of not posting scientific sites (and here I thought NOAA was a scientific organisation...who knew) so these guys are from the USGS. Is that good enough for you?
