My facebook news feed shows a couple articles from msnbc or the like how mean "conservatives" are mocking the global warming/climate change and gleefully laughing about that research ship measuring antarctic ice loss from warming being stuck in the ice. They say it's shameful to laugh.
interesting.

I actually waited for the temps to get into the double digits today (a high of 11*) to go out and grill come chicken for dinner. On a side note, my grills cover had to be ripped off a few days ago because it froze to the grill. I could not believe it.

Yeah. I was following the story through the HuffPo but they never mentioned that the ship was full of climatologists. Odd.

The temperature at evening rush today was probably 10 degrees warmer than it was yesterday but still there's a two hour delay tomorrow for both my boys.

Whatever.

Not the best of times for the Global Warming, or Climate Change crowd these days you have to admit. Why would anyone believe anything this guy says?

There must be some utility troubles in the city because they canceled schools today. It's now 20 warmer than it was a day and a half ago. The kids here are stir crazy. At least my little one has school. The big one should have therapy later - I hope.

Read the article. Wow... I guess. After working for the state's version of the EPA, I can tell you that this is not uncommon. There was a big scandal about 15 years ago involving "ghost" employees. Hundreds on the state payroll that had not physically been into work for months or years. It's the terminal form of "It's not my job" syndrome.
