The temp here is higher than normal but I'm not complaining.

"Sandstorms inflict damage of about $540 million per year, and losses of crops and forests due to acid rain amount to about $730 million per year. More serious are the $6 billion costs of the "green wall" of trees being built to shield Beijing against sand and dust, and the $7 billion per year of losses created by pest species. We enter the zone of impressive numbers when we consider the onetime cost of the 1996 floods ($27 billion, but still cheaper than the 1998 floods), the annual direct losses due to desertification ($42 billion), and the annual losses due to water and air pollution ($54 billion). The combination of the latter two items alone costs China the equivalent of 14% of its GDP each year." - Jared Diamond, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

I'm in St.Louis too (kirkwood) and it HAS been crazy today. I walked out of my apt thinking I'd still need a coat but it was like 68 and then during the course of the day it got really windy then rained for like a minute and now snow!

I don't dispute the fact that there is Global Warming. BUT I reject the notion that MAN is the cause of it. The Earth has natural warming and cooling cycles it goes through. Cycles of warmer summer to HOT summers. Cycles from cold winters to FrEaKin Brass Monkeys in my shorts cold winters.

Turbocharge it!

Global warming haha

If it gets any warmer we are going to freeze. Normal temperatures for this time of year are around minus 9 degrees C. Today we are at minus 37 and wind chill of minus 52 C.
Every winter here is positively getting colder. North Pole is moving to Saskatchewan Canada. The high for the week is supposed to be minus 18 C:

This is our first real winter in about 7 years. Finally getting the 80+ inches of snow we should be.

...and it was 42 degrees and raining when I walked to my morning classes today. It was 15 and snowing when I left work. It will be around -5 (with 45 mph winds) when I go to the bars for my friend's 21st tonight.
