Does anyone watch ABC news?

Unbelievably, ABC "news" is sending out a request for people to write in with their stories of how "Global Warming is Affecting your Life".

Have you noticed changes in your own backyard or hometown?
— altered blooming schedules, unusual animals that have arrived in your community, higher water levels encroaching on your property.

Even if you buy into global warming, it represents a global rise in temperature of 1.1 degrees over the twentieth century.

Do you think that's something that one would notice? Have the oceans begun to flood your house?

So, look for this incredibly unscientific piece of propaganda to be hitting your ABC station.

And they wonder why everyone is leaving the "big three" behind.

  • "...unusual animals that have arrived in your community,..."

    More accurately, "Have you noticed the animals in whose community your subdivision has been built?"

    Just ask all the Atlantans who have moved up to log cabin McMansions in the N. Ga. mountains.
