More on the western “drought”

Almost as a reiteration to my earlier post, here is another article close on the heels of the last, about drying conditions in the West. Climate change is not a vague, unproven myth that wacko lefties perpetuate in order to undermine Big Business. It’s here, folks, and because it is being combined with other fast-acting anthropogenic effects (that I previously discussed), ways of life and species assemblages in the West will be radically changing in the next couple of decades.

And, having done ecological research (my dissertation) in high altitude zones of the “sky islands” myself, on species that may cease to exist in the southern half of Arizona within my lifetime, it is not exactly with glee that I draw your attention.

    I don’t know one person who thinks that the world climate is not changing. Remember the childrens book “Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates?” It has been hundreds of years since they have had ice thick enough to skate on in Holland. I know that Kyoto won’t stop climate change, based on science, because it won’t stop the Chinese coal seam fires, among other things. I also know that one of the reasons all of the Senators voted against it is that it would have hurt our economy. My hope it that we can stop playing political football with this issue and do something to help save the environment.
