In 1974 the EXPERTS were predicting a coming ICE AGE - they were wrong then too - soothsayers have been predicting the end of the world before Jesus was born - none of them lived to see it happen - today's soothsayers are educated idiots with a massive media to spread their 'word' and they will not live long enough to witness the end either. Humankind may find a way to kill themselves off, but the Earth will survive - hotter or colder, it will still be here waiting for the next inhabitants - terrestrial or extraterrestrial whomever they might be.

Yes, I remember the coming Ice Age. It's cause was carbon emissions. Go figure, now we have global warming because of C02.

We have had global warming for the last 10,000 years or so. Glad to have it.

We've been to Butte, but that was a few years back.

It's climate change now since the global warming seems to be it or miss.

We have about a 25 degree drop from Friday to Saturday. We are luck, parts of MN and the Dakotas are looking for 10+ inches of snow. It's too early for that.

Global warming = Political scam. Planet has been encased in ice and surface has been completely underwater. And everything in between. 120 yrs.of data collection is a joke!

82 degrees on the drive home yesterday afternoon and 23 with freezing drizzle and snow flurries for the drive in to work this morning. Wind chill of 12. Supposed to be back into the mid to upper 70's by Monday. Gotta love it.
