  1. Interesting how Obama calls the junk science of global warming the most serious threat as we freeze our asses off.

    Interesting how you didn’t notice we have had a springlike winter. And after two days of cold caused by Canadian polar vortex we will go back to above average temps. And light weight jackets.

  3. It’s properly called climate change. “Global warming” was a misnomer.

  4. Climates have constantly changed over history .
