Joshudan: My boss just went on a trip to New Orleans; he will be in a casino there from today until Sunday. I wonder if he will even notice?
kbronsito: Some baker must have been forced to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.
Tchernobog: Nice? It was 90 frickin degrees with 70% humidity today. It's April and it's already nutsack degrees outside.
BigGrnEggGriller: I know, I know. Global warming.

Christian Liberal: One model has it hitting 103 in Austin on Friday. Should be upper 90s regardless./could break the record for earliest 100 degree day by a month//but global warming is a hoax///3rd slashy stayed at home because it's too hot
Jim_Callahan: in a gulf coast state that rarely has full winter freezes outside of its northern reaches at all even with cold snaps in february though? Not so much.
LoneVVolf: Every now and then, I get slightly grumpy about the 3ft snow storms we get in the northeast. Then I remember that time I took a service call in GA, in July, when I walked out of the hotel at 8am and it was already hot/humid enough for water to condense on my skin while walking to the car...When human body surface temperature is lower than the dew point, you shouldn't be there.
Sensei Can You See: No nation is going to willingly slit their own throats.

Sensei Can You See: Jim_Callahan: in a gulf coast state that rarely has full winter freezes outside of its northern reaches at all even with cold snaps in february though? Not so much.Just because it's rare doesn't mean we caused it. Like I said, I'm not a denier that climate change is happening, but I do think the amount of stuff we put into the atmosphere is just a tiny percentage of everything else.We've seen that just Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Pinatubo each ejected more gasses and dust and ash in one day than humans produced planetwide for years. And they did affect the climate, but not with the catastrophic results we're constantly hearing from human industry.I would find it a lot easier to deal with the stuff politicians and scientists say if they'd stop with all their Chicken Little crap:Politicians are demanding we adopt restrictions and sanctions that would destroy the world's economy just to possibly drop the global temperature a fraction of a degree over the next 30 years.Climatologists constantly issue dire warnings that never materialize. We haven't triggered an ice age; we haven't seen both coasts flooded hundreds of feet deep. They never talk about positive accomplishments (like the hole in the ozone layer closing up, or when they estimate arctic ice loss in a year and it ends up being less than they feared).Politicians could say "Listen, we can't just turn everything off and revert to Renaissance-era technology. We need to stop preventing technology adoption in developing nations; we need to stop signing on to pointless accords that simply aren't possible to achieve. We need to modify regulations in the US that demand utilities hit emissions targets they can't afford to do all at once. That just forces utilities to keep using outdated technology because they can't do incremental upgrades."And even if none of these measures create the significant changes we want, they'll still benefit everyone and make the world cleaner and safer."And I'd love it if clim ...
