Global Warming?

I can't remember the last time in was nearly 100 during the month of May. In our little corner of the world, it doesn't get that hot until July or August. Well, it's coming early this year.

It's supposed to be 100 by Thursday. I am so not looking forward to that. We don't have air conditioning, and our electrical system can't handle it. I have errands that I need to run over the next few days, but I'll get those taken care of in the morning. I don't want to be out in the worst of it in the afternoon.

Those who think Global Warming is myth need to wake up.

I was reading an article in Newsweek written by a man who has lived in Alaska since the early 70's. The valley he lives in has a glacier at one end. It has receded by more than a mile since he moved there. No one can say that's normal.

We are looking at drought conditions this year. The Sierra snow pack was lower than expected, our spring rainfall way off. We're pretty good about water conservation anyway, so I don't know how we're going to cut back anymore than we have.

It's just depressing any way you look at it.

There is a great deal more I can and will (later) post on this topic. For now, you may find these two posts (and associated sub-links) of interest:
