Several Nebraska and Iowa cities set new record low temperatures Sunday morning. Lincoln temperatures fell to 47
There are places you can safely promote global warming. California, Florida or the surface of the sun. But going to pitch Global Warming in Nebraska or North Dakota or the North Pole is just not going to end well.
Lincoln was the latest stop on the 27-state "I Will Act on Climate" bus tour, a series of rallies in support of taking action on climate change. The tour seizes on a statement made by President Barack Obama during his February State of the Union address.
"For the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change. If Congress won't act soon to protect future generations, I will," Obama said.
Nothing fascist about that.
Bob Oglesby, climatologist at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, told Saturday's crowd Nebraska is expected to warm by 4 to 10 degrees during the next century.
"We don't want our children to have to deal with that," Haar said.
No. Of course not. Just imagine if Nebraska warms by 4 degrees.
Several Nebraska and Iowa cities set new record low temperatures Sunday morning. Lincoln temperatures fell to 47 to tie the 1994 record.
Just imagine. When Algoremageddon finally kicks in and the North Pole goes up in a blaze of smoke spewing polar bears and igloos all over the place... it will be 51 degrees in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Another speaker, Columbus industrialist Tony Raimondo Jr., said as a business person he is frustrated that the business community isn't open to addressing environmental issues, but he said awareness is growing.
Raimondo is CEO of Behlen Manufacturing Co., which makes solar energy systems that follow the sun to produce more energy.
I think Tony is a bit confused about the difference between business person and crony capitalist.
Many also used the rally as an opportunity to protest the Keystone XL pipeline. The pipeline opponents wore red and white "Pipeline Fighter" T-shirts.
It's almost a pity that Global Warming isn't real. Some people could use a good apocalypsing.
