    I imagine that if the average temperature in McCook went up 25 degrees in one year as it did in Moscow this year, just about everybody would be leaning towards full belief in anthropogenic global climate change. I know there are many in the area that deny man made global climate change is reality and I can respect that. It wasn't all that long ago that the scientists of the day thought the world was flat.

    Thing is, it doesn't matter. Unless we develop new energy sources to replace coal and oil, we will just pay more and more for ever more scare energy souces with the possibility that our continued use of same will kill us all. I guess the thought is that some new technology will be able to solve these problems before we all choke... I sure hope so.
