The Best Statement I've Yet Heard on Climate Change

"And the very same people who told you that weapons of mass destruction were real are telling you that climate change is not."
Indeed.

One should consider one's sources. They were wrong about the economy, about the Iraq misadventure, and about so many other things ... Why would anyone trust them on anything at all?

I have only one clear statement to make about climate change. The hottest temperature ever recorded in Victoria, BC. That is historially ever, not just this year, occurred last week. 37 + degrees...Celsius, mind you.

But hey, that could happen, right?

They've only been keeping records for a century or more...

Sorry, that was supposed to be "historically"...

So hot around here I forgot how to spell.

Hottest temperature ever in Seattle, too. But no, the ice caps are not melting and polar bears drowning because of climate change. It's all in our heads.

I'm continually astounded at the short-sightedness of our political leadership.

So, judging by the just-barely-51% turnout, are other people. Perhaps what we need is someone with a longer view.

Vancouver also broke its historical record, with 38 or so. However, I hesitate to use such measures as proof. Experiential evidence is unfortunately suceptible to misuse by stupid people who'd immediately point out that last year was one of the snowiest nationwide. Now in fact more snow tends to indicate warmer winter temperatures, but hey, let's not let the future of humanity get in the way of the oil industry, eh?
