    How's that global warming thing going?

    How's the same old tired argument, brought up every time there's a snowstorm, going?

    It ain't just one snowstorm. Read the damn story. North America has more snow and ice cover than any year since 1966.

    And of course, just wait for a major heat wave later this year for the opposing view to be presented.

    Kind of like declaring someone is the greatest baseball or football player of all time based on one at bat or one pass.

    Meanwhile, another trope of the global warming deniers is destroyed:


    Every time I see something like this, I think how sad it is that conservatives have made this a political issue. It's science people, it shouldn't have anything to do with ideology. Yet instead of helping to protect our planet's future, conservatives try to score some political points.

    While most of my list has been chunked in a truce and a new attitude, Alley Allen has risen to a level unmatched by anyone in SportsJournalists.com's pompous category. Few others have the keys to the room.

    Higher temperatures mean more water vapor in the atmosphere. That vapor goes north with the winds and comes down as either rain, or, when it gets to 32ºF, as snow or ice.

    You cited an opinion piece from a conservative Canadian paper. You're willing to swallow that as fact?

    I thought Canadians were right about everything. Ask JR.

    Few people have theorized that rather than be a part of greenhouse gasses, that this might just be a course of nature and design that's as out of our control as, dare I say, evolution?

    Look, as long as algore flies planes all over and drives a car, I call bullshit on this. You lead by example. It's just a cause to keep him wealthy and famous. And I realize that algore isn't the only one sitting on this stool preaching, but I can only address one hypocrite at a time and he's as big a target as anyone.

    Whew, for a minute there I thought they were making another one of these.

    If you want proof of global warming, come on up to Alberta. I'll take you out to one of our mountain glaciers.

    You can see for yourself what they are today and the pictures of what they were just 20, 50 and 75 years ago. They are a fraction of their former selves.

    Stealing bandwidth is for losers, QB. :D
