Climate - Within just the past 18 months the following events have come to our attention: a record-breaking drought that sent temperatures over 100 degrees for weeks, killing half the corn in the Midwest and half the TREES on our suburban property – AND – a hurricane that drowned not New Orleans or Tampa or North Carolina but my native state of VERMONT. As an encore, a second hurricane drowned lower Manhattan, New Jersey and Long Island. The shouted views of decrepit mental fossil Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma that this is a fraud perpetrated on the American people by evil, conspiring climate scientists is belied by such events and is looking irresponsible to even the most skeptical.
I didn't have to read any further than the above to understand that the author -- who believes that the concept of climate that encompasses geological time can be encapsulated in weather phenomena spanning 1 1/2 years -- is a moron. And anyone who thinks anything meaningful can be extracted by the rantings of such a person is very likely the same.
