warm weather

So, the week before Thanksgiving I was in Utah. I could not believe how warm it was. Check this out:

70 degrees! And almost no snow in the mountains:

And while I was there, I talked to several people, none of whom I want to offend, as they are my family and close friends, about global warming. And none of them believe it is really happening. Even though it was seventy degrees in November.

The news about global warming is getting more and more grim. Check this article out:


People keep saying that there is a lot of debate in the scientific community regarding whether global warming is real, or if it is really caused by human activity. Maybe five years ago, that was true. But a lot of work has been done on the subject in the last two or three years, and it's pretty clear. It's really happening, we caused it, and if we don't do something to fix it, NOW, we are in serious trouble.

Thank you for your insightful posts.
It is so frustrating when people discount global warming or think it is not going to affect life as they know it. It makes education on the topic a priority imho.
