It's not a man made problem

It's the end of April and this is THE 2nd or 3rd nice day we've had in the Seattle area this year. It got to about 70 degrees but it seems to be getting a little cloudy this evening. Still, it was a splendid day. I am also happy to report that not everyone on the Eastside has succumbed to the poisonous hype know as (in creepy voice) *Global Warming* as there were many people taking their boats out today which were towed by gas guzzling, polluting trucks and SUVs. Good for you. It's probably been a rough day of boating, drinking beer, and barbecuing, so be sure to end your day with a relaxing movie. Here's one you can cuddle up to: The Great Global Warming Swindle. I will be watching that movie tonight or tomorrow night so I'll be sure to tell you how it is. If you down have a TV, curl up to a good book like Climate Confusion: How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor.

Don't get me wrong-- we should absolutely take care of our earth. I am all for the mantra "reduce, reuse, recycle." But why should we feel guilty about a naturally occurring weather change that we can't control? We are in a warming cycle (cycle being the key word) but it is not man made.The dinosaurs lived in a period of global warming--did they drive cars and boats? Were they the cause? No. So in the words of my brother-in-law, "go thee forth" and boat!
