That Damn Global Warming Is Going To Kill Us All!

I'm not sure we'll survive the year.

DJ UPDATE: US GAS:

More Cold Weather Forecasts Boost Market
CALGARY (Dow Jones)--Natural gas futures rose Tuesday, with traders covering positions on forecasts of persisting cold winter in the U.S. Midwest, likely increasing demand for gas as heating fuel.
Front-month February natural gas futures on the New York Mercantile Exchange settled at $7.597 a million British thermal units, up 27.8 cents.

The last time the market closed higher was Dec. 14 at $7.673/MMBtu. Weather forecasts released Thursday suggested that the cold weather expected to hit the U.S. Midwest between Jan. 28 and Feb. 1 will now persist longer than previously expected. One model run by meteorologists at MDA's EarthSat Weather Group in Rockville, Md., forecasts "the coldest outbreak in years" for large parts of the U.S. between Feb. 2-6.

With weather being the key to success in the gas market, I would say the weather has been quite cold according to statistics in the market...and colder, yet to come. AND THEY CALL THIS GLOBAL WARMING?

If we get any hotter, we may not cool down for summer. But then if we keep moving toward hotter weather, who knows, we may see the thermometer go up past freezing by the first day of June. Oh, it's soooo hot where I live, can hardly keep cool this winter. Perhaps if I send a note to Al Gore he will send some cooling breezes my way.

You mean there's someone who's still denying climate change?

As you can see, it's only a consenus that global warming is occuring in far left wing circles. Apparently the majority seriously doubt it but you'll never hear that in democrat run media.
