burning up

Here's one for you global warming naysayers. It was 31C here on Oct 8 (that's about 90F for you yanks). The temperature here was higher than the temperature in Kingston, Jamaica. Hot. Crazy. Average temperature here in Oct is 9C (48F). Am I the only person who is worried?


RainyBow note: I can't help but refer back to a poll from earlier this year. Here's the oh-so-shocking news: only 13 percent of congressional Republicans say they believe that human activity is causing global warming, compared to 95 percent of congressional Democrats. Talk amongst yourselves.

RainyBow again: I forgot to mention that the Chicago marathon was cancelled Sunday mid-run because of the heat wave that sent over 350 people to hospital. In October. Crappy for all those people who trained for so long, but maybe that's what you get for being all ambitious and stuff. I hope they went home and ate ridiculous amounts of junk food.

I wake up this morning to find out that Al Gore winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts on Global Warming. I suppose that Republicans will now sue all the way to the supreme court to challenge that it was G. W.'s idea.

Emory, for future reference, the plural of Inuit is Inuit. Most people on the planet don't know this so don't feel too badly. I hesitate to point this out as I love your comments and don't want them to stop. You seem like you can deal with the correction though.
