CNSNews.com - Pelosi Snowed-Out of Global Warming Rally
ironic, eh ?
Must prove there is no global warming.
your buddy Kirky will be on later to prove that there is. (sarc)
The question is not whether there is global warming but whether or not human activity is the cause. If it is not, then not only are we wasting all kinds of time and energy on the wrong issue, but we're taking away from what we should be doing, which is dealing with global warming's actual effects.
This leads to my next point; even if we are causing global warming, we're not going to be able to reverse it. We're not going to turn the world away from the use of fossil fuels for hundreds of years, no matter what you may hope for. The idea that we will is an illusion, a fantasy. Maybe 100 to 200 years from now, that actually will happen, but you've already told us that will be too late. So with that in mind, it would make sense that we address the issues that will arise due to increasing temperatures rather than worry about trying to change something that we will not be able to change.
Actually, the question is ALSO whether or not there is global warming, as the computer models have been proven to be woefully inaccurate and inadequate, and real data shows there's actually a cooling trend.
When i played lacrosse the 1st practice was March 1st every year, funny how that date never used to arrive with 6" of snow........
Temperatures had been increasing for quite some time until the last few years. I believe it was 98 that was the hottest year due to a strong El Nino effect. I'm not going to look it up so I might be off just a hair. Since then, overall temps have been dropping a bit, but but they still show an upward trend. If we are actually starting to cool, then it doesn't matter.
My main point was that it really doens't matter. Even if we knew we were causing global warming, we can't stop it. We can't stop the entire world from using fossil fuels in the next five, ten, or fifty years. It ain't gonna happen folks.
So we should concentrate on issues that we can do something about. We know the SW United States is drying up, and has been for the last thirty years. Now, it's getting worse, mostly due to the fact we have too many people living there using way too much water. What do we do to address this problem for the long term. Even if the planet starts cooling, the SW is going to have issues with a lack of water. Lake Powell and Lake Mead are drying up. These are the problems we should be paying attention to.
Lakes Mead and Powell could run dry by 2021
It's a 50 percent possibility, a new Scripps study finds, which would squeeze water supplies in Arizona, California, Nevada, and New Mexico.

Reporter Peter N. Spotts discusses dropping water levels in two important lakes in the western US.Lake Mead and Lake Powell, which supply water and power to millions in the American Southwest, stand a 50 percent chance of running dry by 2021 unless dramatic changes take place in how the region uses water, according to a new study.

Think ole' dizzy one can somehow see the irony. Probably not. She was last seen still swooning over the Fleeting Convictions in Chief.
What's wrong with you folks...guess you didn't get the memo...snow in March is a sure indicator of global warming.
It's a good thing. The way Pelosi is built, she could've poked somebody's eye out.
