It's Cold Out There.

And I work mostly outside at night.

It looks like the temporary and entirely natural warming cycle of the 90s is now completely over.

Of course they will talk about it until they find a new environmental boogie-man to hit us over the head with.

1960s Litter and DDT
1970s Overpopulation
1980s Acid Rain
1990s Hole in the Ozone Layer
2000s Global Warming (AKA Climate Change)
2010s ????????

They'll "discover" a new doomsday threat. They always do.

I predict it will be beef.

Everything will be the fault of meat-eating, freedom-loving conservatives.

Nah, its got to be something that can affect EVERYONE and definitely is caused by PEOPLE (mostly in the USA) living their lives. I predict cell phones will be the cause, but the natural occurence they affect has yet to be determined!

(Keep warm, Shopster!)

You forgot the OTHER 70s impending calamity: Global Cooling.

2010's doomsday threat will be conservatives. Scientists will "prove" them to be a danger to the rain forrests.

When I was in college (1968-1972), we kept hearing about the coming ice age.

Now, the environuts have switched to talking about global warming.

Pfffft!

Leftistas must always have the sky falling.

I'm freezing my butt off here in Northern Virginia. This is going to be one of the coldest winters on record.

I was going to bring up new ice age in the 70's but Joe beat me to it.
I'm liking this weather! Been skiing 6 times so far this year.

I think we can all agree that we are against too much pollution and all, but radical enviornmentalism is so 1980's...

PCC it always is

Beth Already there is some evidence that the Overuse of cellphones is dangerous. Maybe the effect of powerlines on the environment? You really can't predict.

Joe, AOW and Tim I don't think they tried to blame the "Coming Ice Age" on human activity did they? I don't really remember.

Protecting the environment is very important. Using it as a cover for a greedy grab for power and wealth, which is all that modern environmentalism is, is another thing entirely.

Stay worm. I feel sorry for the guys who have to work outside in the cold/heat. I work with the paramedics and cops, they look cold when they come in.

Yeah, so much for global warming. It is freezing here!! And we have gotten so much snow that we keep getting snowed in. We live on a street with huge hills and the snow plow never makes it to our street.

Shoprat,

My biology teacher did. She spoke a lot about the importance of birth control (0-2 children per set of parents) and recycling paper and aluminum products so as to fix the atmosphere, or something.

Yet deny that there is a terrorist threat.
